I have good news, and not so good news, and great news to share. First, I’m finally making significant progress on HIDE AND SEEK (the sequel to my 65+ starred review thriller LOST AND FOUND). I have a deadline looming every closer and have been scrambling to find a floaty-device to keep me from drowning in my to-do lists.
The bad news–in order to get traction on the fictioning process, I’ve had to make some very difficult decisions and slooooooow down on other fronts. Sadly, I’ve had to step away from some of my favorite projects, including the CAT CRAZY radio show. I’ll still be a “special friend” of the show and hope to return to the co-host chair once I’ve survived the various deadlines. Thanks so much for continuing to support the show.
Oh, the great news? MY LAPTOP IS HOME! Talk about a lifeline, that is very good news that I really needed. As far as I can tell (thus far) it’s made a full recovery thanks to the awesome Geek Squad over at Best Buy. That means I’ll be able to finish the audio version soon of the ComPETability (Dogs-to-Dogs) book and future titles. On that front, I again encourage y’all to subscribe (if you haven’t already) to my PET PEEVES newsletter. There’ll be some extreee-spashun book news on Thursday that will be announced there first. 🙂
Monday Mentions is the mash-up-day of all the neato-torpedo writer links and videos, pet schtuff and bling and writer-icity crappiocca collected over the past week. Check out the SQUEEE! cute pet-astic videos at the bottom, too. For new followers to the blog, welcome! and you can expect more cat and dog specific schtuff later in the week on Wednesday and Friday.
