We had a visitor in our house this week: Flat Stanley came to visit from Holly Academy in Michigan. He was sent by my great-niece Sage, and he had a great time helping out in the yard and with our guest house. He also hung out with Kimba for a while.
Flat Stanley didn’t have time to help me edit and revise “Miss Fatty Cat’s Revenge” before he had to return home. I imagine he would have found that kind of boring, but it’s pretty much all that I’m up to these days. Book 3 should be heading out to my new editor by April 1!
The other big excitement around here is that I’m upgrading my computer and getting my own Adobe Creative Suite system so I’m able to do most if not all of the formatting for my books myself. This is the biggest expense with self-publishing, and if I can take on significant portions of the process myself it means the door is open to do more Cats in the Mirror books without ruining any profit margin. I’m grateful to everyone who has helped with the formatting along the way, but it’s time to take the next step.
I was also thrilled to have “Why Kimba Saved The World” and “Vacation Hiro” listed as one of the top books about cats by Cat’s Stories web site. Check out her list right here!
Next week, I will be posting as part of a fun writer’s blog hop. I was invited to join by my excellent writer friend Jan Morrill. If you have not read her book The Red Kimono, follow the link to find it on amazon.com. Here is a link to her blog post from this week. My post in the blog hop will appear here on Monday, March 31st.
