Ack! TIme Slipping Awaaaaay....

Between the DDOS on Livejournal for the Russian elections and our spotty internet at home due to Hughes Satellite (Miss E recently told the tech who called that there were no issues...), it's been difficult to get a consistent post up. And then there's the whole Disney thing.

At any rate, I have these photos that were taken for Miss E's new book, The New Queen (preview is out there, if you know what to look for on Blurb or in Google).

Grady, looking quite elegant for such a teensy little cat.

Ferb asking his sister Doodledorf Casey how she got herself into this mess. (It was an open casting call?)

"I've got you now, my pretty!" (Thomas, Casey, and Shy Ozzie totally obscured by her sister's bulk.)

Oh yes. What tremendous fun--and great photos.

yes and Santa probably owes you a physical copy so you can read it to your cats. But it must be even better reading it this year since you've met the cast of characters.

She's pretty clever. I had this whole Richard III thing going in NaNo a couple of years ago, but she came up with the whole 7 years to princess and regent part (in Queen of Day, Queen of Night). What had me in stitches with this one was how the ordinary cat photos were selected and then she made up the text. Then, yes, we had to fill in a couple of holes with semi-posed photos. But you know cats. They don't pose. Or maybe the whole thing about Grady doing the laundry had me in stitches? I still remember his fascination with the front loader going around and around.

Oh, that book is just too adorable. Let me know when Miss E's book tour brings her to Albemarle and I'll be sure to get a signed copy for my boys. It's a little over their heads now, but in a few years. . .

Try the boys on "Meet Our Cats" which you can also preview in full. It's a nice little story for the younger crowd. The book is listed at the bottom of the webpage for The New Queen.
