San Diego, CA – Sep 6, 2022 – Jill Kramer’s new Early Reader Picture Book, THE ADVENTURES OF INNER-CITY KITTY, is now available on Amazon.
More than 15 years ago, when she was the Editorial Director of a San Diego–area publishing company, Jill had a dream in which the title and entire plot for this book came to her. To say this was a strange occurrence is an understatement, as she didn’t have kids (although she does have three adopted godchildren), and she edited nonfiction, self-help/mind-body-spirit books at the time. She spent the entire next day writing the book.
Over the years, she would occasionally send out the manuscript to publishers, and then forget about it until rereading it and thinking, This is darn good! Then, in early 2020, the VP of Children’s Books at a major NY publisher told Jill that he loved her book, and she thought, Finally, I’m going to get this published! But then the pandemic hit, and all new projects were put on hold. Fortunately, several months ago while playing tennis with her friend Bill Gladstone, a longtime literary agent and the head of a new, traditional publishing company called Waterside Productions, he said he would publish her book.
And so, THE ADVENTURES OF INNER-CITY KITTY: “Kitty Is Adopted” has finally been born after a long gestation. It deals with adoption (of both kiddies and kitties), tolerance, multicultural issues (acceptance of those of all stripes and colors) and, of course, the love of cats.
