For those conference attendees who would like to present pitches to editors, to date, we have four editors signed up to take pitches and we are working with others to expand the list.


Lonnie Hull DuPont is an Executive Editor at Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group, where she acquires books for publication.  She is the author of several books herself, including the recent Kit Kat & Lucy:  The Country Cats Who Changed a City Girl’s World.  She is also the compiler of five collections  of animal stories under the pseudonym of Callie Smith Grant.  

ELLEN PRICE has worked for Pet Sitters International for 15+ years as editor of the Pet Sitters WORLD and as academic manager.  PSI is the international membership association for more than 7,000 pet-sitting businesses. She previously worked in sports marketing for the San Antonio Express News and in the livestock publication industry. She will take pitches to write for Pet Sitters WORLD and guest blogs for PSI.

JANISS GARZA has been a writer and editor for over 25 years, beginning as a rock journalist and senior editor for nationally acclaimed hard rock magazine RIP, and later spreading her topics to include vintage film, fitness, and cats. Along with being the author of several cat books, a contributor to Catster, and a columnist for, Janiss also collaborated with Motörhead’s Lemmy Kilmister on his autobiograhpy, White Line Fever. Janiss used all the skills she learned over the decades to form FitCat Publishing, a small imprint that focuses on cause-oriented, highly niched books. FitCat’s first anthology of cat stories, Rescued, won several awards and was an Amazon best seller. The company is currently editing a second volume of Rescued stories and looking for submissions from authors who have a cause to champion and a story to tell.

DUSTY RAINBOLT is the award-winning author of 11 novels and cat care books. She is the editor-in-chief at and owner of Stupid Gravity Press, LLC. Stupid Gravity is looking for well-researched and entertaining pet care books, pets and faith and paranormal pets.  

The contact for scheduling your one-on-ones this year will be Paul Glassner. He won't be taking names until April, so you have plenty of time to get your pitches refined for that 10 minute appointment.

Looking forward to another great conference!

Marci Kladnik, your Prez and Conference Co-Chair
