As many of you know, we lost Joe the Giant Cat about a year ago. He was my special buddy, sleeping on my head, occupying any available lap, and most importantly, supervising my writing and publishing activities. Did you not know, every book requires at least 497 cat hairs to be complete?
It’s taken quite a while for our family to be ready for a new fur pal, but we’ve adopted a kitty. I thought his name was going to be Toby, but MU and Youngerson observed this fuzzy dynamo and dubbed him Dex.
Short for Dexedrine. This cat runs at about 0.7 Miniature Dachsund Units. I’ve never encountered a cat in the laundry cupboard before. Life with Dexie is like living with a raccoon.
However, he has assumed publication duties. Joe left some mighty big pawprints to fill, but Dexie is stepping up to the pump.
Here he is, supervising the preparation of D.H. Starr’s Wrestling With Passion, which, thanks to Dexie’s assistance, is now ready to read.
And good fellow that Dex is, he’s gotten my butt in gear too. Crises of confidence are best treated with nose boops and purring, according to Publishing Cat II.
So–drumroll please–Concierge Service will be coming out ASAP! Craig and Joshua owe more than they know to my feline taskmaster.
If only he’d help me write the blurb…
This is me after reading my email last night:
I was a sad Pam after the frenzy that was GRL registration: even the speediest of mouse clicks didn’t get me a spot. So I wait-listed, and resigned myself to being patient. And maybe not there. Which would be sad: where else could I hang out with Eden Winters (and Bear), TD O’Malley, D.H Starr, and all my favorite authors and readers in one giant partay?
Got the good news last night, and finalized today: all that PTO reserved last year is getting put to best use! I will be there!
With a new book. Or two. If I’m fast….

Hmmm, looks like a great time to buy some books! Find my Dreamspinner titles right here. Mountains, stocks and bonds, submarines…. And love. Always love.
Several of you let me know that a post showed up that was very confusing, a password protected item. This wasn’t supposed to show up generally, but it was completely intentional on my part, at least that there was a password and a document behind it.
Not that it’s any big secret what it is: I’m giving a presentation and instead of killing 99 trees, I thought I would host a PDF file with all my show and tell slides where the attendees could download it. Since the actual document will make less than no sense without the accompanying talk, I wasn’t going to subject everyone to it. Instead, I’ve made you all question either my sanity or the security of the blog.
Sorry about that! The blog is secure, my sanity is questionable, and I’ve figured out the stumbling block in the current WIP, so I should have something to show everyone soon.
In the meantime, have a picture of Mark from Fall Down the Mountain.
