FORT WALTON BEACH — Local Fort Walton Beach author Nick Smith donated half of his book sales over the weekend to the SOCKS Animal Shelter.

Last Saturday, Smith spent the day at the Pet Supermarket in Fort Walton Beach, advertising his newest book “Milk Treading.” Smith, though, wasn’t alone.

The SOCKS (Save our Cats and Kittens) Animal Shelter brought along two adoptable kittens for guests to play with while they got their books signed by Smith.

Smith said he chose to give away half of his book sales to SOCKS because he wanted to support the local community.

“Milk Treading,” which takes place in a city of all cats, follows the journey of cat protagonist Julius, who uses his investigative reporter skills to uncover the mystery of his friend’s suicide.

“They say write about what you know and I’ve always had cats in the family,” Smith said. “The inspiration was all around me.”

Smith owns two cats. One of his feline friends, Scout, is on the cover of “Milk Treading.”

The author said of all of his books, “Milk Treading” is, by far, his favorite.

“This is the one that is closest to my heart,” Smith said. “It’s my baby. It’s my favorite kid.”

“Milk Treading” can be purchased online on Smith is also the author of “Undead on Arrival,” “Eat Happy,” Scriptwriting: The Secrets Unleashed” and “The Age of Endarkenment.”
