WHAT WE ARE ABOUT
Viv Drewa and Karen Vaughan formed Owl and Pussycat Promotions July 2016. We pride ourselves on friendly service that will meet the needs of independent authors. Our focus is on social media, i.e., Facebook and Twitter primarily and other platforms. Every week we feature a book or two of the authors choice including book blurbs, reviews, character quotes, and excerpts and we also have a follow the author day. We firmly believe that having a consistent and organized plan is key to the success of any book promotion.
As authors, we understand the promotional needs and a variation on the golden rule applies “Promote for others the way we want to be promoted!”
WHO WE ARE
Viv is a Michigan native who has enjoyed reading and writing since 1963. Though she studied medicinal chemistry at the University of Michigan her passion has always been writing.
She was awarded third place for her nonfiction short story about her grandfather’s escape from Poland. Later, she rewrote this story and was published in the “Polish American Journal” as “From the Pages of Grandfather’s Life” and recently had it published again on Amazon.com
Viv took creative and journalism courses to help in her transition to fulfill her dream of becoming a writer. She worked as an intern for Port Huron’s ‘The Times Herald”, and also wrote, edited and did the layout or the Blue Water Multiple Sclerosis newsletter “Thumb Prints.”
She teaches sewing to physically and mentally disabled adults, a cause close to her heart.
Viv also writes two blogs to help promote our authors.
Karen Vaughan lives in Peterborough Ontario with her husband Jim and a cat named JJ. She is the mom of a 26-year-old daughter and four grown stepchildren, a newborn granddaughter and a 6-year-old grandson named Izak who could very well be smarter than a fifth grader. DEAD COMIC STANDING is her second novel. Her first novel DEAD ON ARRIVAL garnered praise from friends, family, and online gamers. She also enjoys doing crafts and other hobbies. Her third book and sequel to DEAD ON ARRIVAL is called OVER HER DEAD BODY. DAYTONA DEAD is the third in that series and was released in May 2013. Other than writing Karen loves to read, do crafts and play online games. Currently, she hosts an internet radio show called WRITERS ROUND TABLE since January the 14th, 2014. She has a quirky sense of humor and shows this in her mysteries and her side hobby of stand-up comedy. DEAD MEN DON’T SWING AND JAMAICA DEAD WERE PUBLISHED in January 2015. LEFT FOR DEAD AND HOLMES IN AMERICA WERE PUBLISHED IN 2016. Karen is currently working on her 7th book in the Laura and Gerry series DEAD TO WRITES.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
ABOUT OUR SERVICES
DELLANI OAKES AUTHOR OF THE LONE WOLF SERIES
I love Owl and Pussycat Promotions. Karen Vaughan and Viv Drewa are organized, professional, fun and wonderful to work with. They get a lot of input from their authors to personalize the promotions, making them unique to each person.
GERALD DARNELL AUTHOR OF THE CARSON RENO MYSTERIES
To promote my writing and novels who could do a better job than another writer, a writer who understands how to get my books in front of the right people – the people who buy and read books. Viv Drewa and Karen Vaughn with ‘Owl and Pussycat Promotions’ (writers themselves) are doing that for me, and I could not be more pleased with the results.
PAUL NOSACH AUTHOR OF BLAZING HEARTS
To Owl & Pussycat Promotions: I have never felt such a warm welcome from the people who are helping me promote my novels. Not only are they doing that, but are creating spectacular art for my covers.
MARTA MORAN BISHOP AUTHOR OF DARKNESS DESCENDS
The Owl and Pussycat Promotions have just the right balance between cleverly and stunning advertisements, creative marketing strategies, and professionalism that has been and will continue to be a godsend to me.
