Dognapping Invaders!

I knew something big was going on last weekend, Miss Penny speaking, and I was right. Susan ignored me for three days, as she packed boxes and the printer buzzed above my bed, not conducive to napping. And then she closed the door and left me, abandoned again. Not long after Susan left, I heard the key in the front door and strange footsteps approach the study. I shivered and quaked, Dognapping invaders! The door opened slowly, my heart is beating out of my chest, I’m terrified. How could Susan leave me? And… there stood my good friend Nancy. My tail did a double-time wag, you see I love Nancy. But, I stopped wagging my tail and held my breath there was a man standing behind Nancy. Is he a friend or is Nancy colluding with him to dognap me? I start the shiver, big time, the more dramatic the better the cuddles and Nancy buys it and picks me up. The guy, Jim, seemed okay, but I was dognapped and taken to a car and whisked away to Nancy’s place. Phew! I’ve been before so I settled on Nancy’s lap and slept. All that tension and stress, I was exhausted.  Susan?

Funny Feeling in my Tummy!

I have a funny feeling in my tummy that something big is going on. Miss Penny speaking. The dinning table is piled with books, banners, brochures, postcards, signs and even shortbread. What does shortbread have to do with writing? There has been a lot of talk about Ottawa Book Expo (see details below) and that feeling in my tummy tells me we are getting close and I’m not included. I was right Nancy is coming to look after me, now I like Nancy so that’s not so bad, but I can still look forlorn and make Susan feel bad. Chuckle! And, Susan says, the shortbread is going as samples to promote Christmas at Lavender Cottage because the recipe is in that book and once you taste Susan’s shortbread you must get the recipe. And you get the bonus of a special warm, enchanting romantic Christmas story of family and friends with a dose of mystery, suspense and, of course, a happy ending. Check out the videos on my Facebook page

Here are the details: Sunday Oct 20th 10 am – 5 pm (that’s tomorrow) Ottawa Book Expo Lansdowne Park Horticultural Building Booth # 8 Susan will be on stage at 11:15 taking about The story behind the story followed by a reading. See you there! Well, no actually dogs aren’t allowed, that’s bummer maybe I’ll sulk.

Radishes!

Can you see that little red ball? Miss Penny speaking, I had so much fun, Susan said it’s called a radish; what kind of name is that? It came to me from the sky, well not quite but from above my head, the kitchen counter. Susan was making a salad, yuck, veggies and things she says are good for you. I’ll stick to chicken and kibble. But this little red ball rolled around the floor and it had a little tail, Susan said it was the root, that I could grab with my teeth and throw it in the air and let it bounce and roll. I accidentally bit into it and what a shock I got, it burned my mouth so I spit it out. It rolled under the cupboard and I let it stay there. It was fun while it lasted. Susan is a little cranky, although she laughed at my radish antics, she had a new cover made for Christmas at lavender Cottage and I think the designer screwed up and now Susan’s worried she won’t have the books ready for Ottawa Book Expo on Oct 20th. However, there is good news she finished the first draft of book three of the Lavender Cottage Series. Doubts and rumours plague Katie and Piers’ romance. Will the love birds marry or part ways forever? Aren’t I naughty teasing you? If it helps, we do get the answer in this book. Susan’s searching for a title; what do you think of  Believing Truth or Lies ? It probably won’t be published until after Christmas, it has to be edited, formatted and a cover designed—I hope she has better luck with this book.

And What about Me?

Hee-hee! Miss Penny speaking, my nose is out of joint. Susan has too much to say today. The revised memoir Save Some for Me, And what about You? is available on Amazon and all online retailers today or in a day or two.. Do you get it? My little pun on the title. I’m not just a pretty dog. And, that’s not all; Susan’s reading in Winchester is the featured photo this week and I was left at home, for a long, long time and I didn’t go to my favourite dog-sitter. What do you thing I should do? Pull the stuffing out of the cushion, I love that white stuff or I could chew a shoe, I haven’t done that in a while, but that’s being puppyish, I am two now, and the leather gets stuck in my underbite; maybe not. I’m just pouting, I really am happy for all these good things that are happening—after all I am Susan’s assistant. I like it when she’s writing, she stays home. She’s almost finished book three of the Lavender Cottage Series, yep she changed the name. Not many people know what a narrowboat is so changing the name made sense. Bye for now!

Burying Bones!

Phew! A much quieter week, Miss Penny Speaking although I might be in a bit of trouble because I was so exhausted last week I didn’t mention Susan’s writing, I am her assistant. She updated her website check it out lots of free stories. Psst! Keep this quiet but I actually can’t read, I’m working on it. I’m a good listener and I’m looking forward to the audio version of The Blue Pendant coming this fall and did you know the new Sophie series is a spinoff from The Blue Pendant. Susan weaves her stories together it’s clever how she does it.

Not much room to bury a bone here!

More than enough room to bury a bone here!

That makes me wonder what I’m clever at… Um… cuteness of course and am skilled at burying bones, a daily treat. I took my milkbone to my bed in the office, but that bed is small so I took it to my bed in the living room, where I bury most things, the toast crusts get a bit gross; the bones bury well. I have a problem. I like company and Susan was busy in the office, so I whined, I don’t bark; I whine just a little. It took Susan a full five minutes to understand I needed her to come into the living room, she can be slow at times, while I buried my bone. She didn’t look pleased, but my office bed is too small and I like company.

An Unexpected Day!

Don’t I look good? Miss Penny speaking, a day at the spa, that’s what Susan calls it, more like a day in the torture chamber. Susan says I’m being dramatic. Maybe I am, but it was a challenging day. First there was a car ride to Rose’s, and get this… when I arrived Preston the big lab who belongs to Frank’s family in Stittsville, was sucking up to Pierre. What’s he doing here? I asked. His family have gone away to Italy. I feel sorry that they have abandoned him but he’s nuzzling in on my territory and I can tell Pierre’s affections are divided. I’m the princess here and I need more than half. I guess I can share for a while. Susan went off with Rose and when they got back, they then took me to the groomers. The nice thing about Pet Agree in Kanata is all the other dogs and look at me I am beautiful. By the time we got home I was exhausted. I’ve no idea what Susan is doing in the writing world, I’m too tired to care today. I think she’s working on a new title and new cover for the second edition of Save Some for Me.

Left Behind… Again!

Huh! See if I care! Miss Penny Speaking. What am I doing with the cushion? Making my opinion known; Susan left me behind last weekend. She went to Romancing the Capital, a writers thing. I stayed with my favourite people Rose and Pierre. Psst! Don’t tell Susan but I really like it there. When we got home Susan had some interesting books, not writing she was reading. The covers had photos of awesome, bare chested guys on the front and her eyes got wider and wider as she turned the pages, rather quickly I might add. Now, I’m a dog so what do I know about romance. Susan muttered, “Really! unbelievable!” not sure what was in those books and perhaps I’m too young to know. Life has settled back to normal, Chewing the cushion makes me feel better, you’ll note I’ve done it before. I don’t let Susan out of my sight. Thank goodness she’s been home all week writing, the third book of The Narrowboat Romance Series is coming along nicely, I hasten to add Susan’s books don’t have sexy men on the cover. Ah, maybe they should and she’d sell more. No, it’s not Susan’s thing. I almost forgot, check out Ruins in Silk, there is a big connection to Susan’s new book and it is Free as an ebook.

Abandoned Again!

Miss Penny Speaking, can you believe Susan went away…. again! She went to Anne’s cottage on Black Lake for a week of writing. I thought it was pretty neat having an owner who is an author, because it meant Susan was at home most of the day. Right now I’m not so sure as she has been away twice on a writing jaunt in the last month. I don’t understand why I’m not included but I go to Rose and Pierre’s. I love their little backyard and the dog next door and the treats. I mentioned last time, the beds a bit crowded, but I always have someone in touching range. I like to that. I question what Susan was doing at the lake as it seems she hasn’t finished the Katie romance book yet nor has she finished the second edition of Save Some for Me. She tells me it’s close; I reckon there was a lot of napping and chatting going on at the lake and not much writing. What do you think? Wine might be involved too!

Did you notice I’m not in the lake photo. I’m a bit miffed!

Three in a Bed!

I survived the weekend without Susan, Miss Penny Speaking. It was tough, but I can take it. Psst… don’t tell Susan, I had a great time. Rose and Pierre have a little backyard, I can run in and out of without a leash. In the next yard was another little dog. How cool is that? And, we went for walks and I met hundreds of friendly dogs, perhaps not hundreds but there were a lot of new friends. Bedtime was a bit different. At home it’s just Susan and me. I ran upstairs, that’s neat, no stairs at home, Rose put me on the bed and we settled quite comfortably, then Pierre got in bed too—three in a bed—definitely warm and cosy, if a bit crowded. I was in the middle and had to wiggle and push my paws to get enough space. Rose and Pierre didn’t seem to mind although I noticed they were clinging to the edge of the mattress, muttering that they didn’t have much room. I used the sad tearful eyes, missing home, and they were fine. Susan picked me up on Sunday night, of course I was careful not to be too happy, but I was very happy and a little nervous she might leave again. So, that night I tried to sleep on top of Susan, making sure she could not get up and leave. Susan wasn’t too happy about that. I just used the sad eyes guilt trip. Susan says I’m talking too much, she has some messages for you.

Play and Away!

No breaking news today: Noisy construction has delayed video recordings. But check out episode 7 of The Blue Pendant – Nothing is Fair in Love and War

Play & Away!

I love my walks, but I wish I could walk without my leash. Miss Penny speaking, I also like to play and being attached to Susan means I can’t run after birds and squirrels. I am sure they would like to play but I can’t get to them. Yesterday a cute rabbit ran by me, it took me by surprise and I almost choked, Susan said it was my fault for pulling, I say its animal cruelty. I only want to play with the rabbit. It’s been boring here. Susan spent all week formatting the new book and it’s ready for the Arc readers, whatever that is? Oh, Susan says it’s free advanced copy for feedback prior to the launch. Contact Susan this week if you’re interested as she’ll be away at the OIW Writers Retreat next weekend. WHAT! Susan away? I don’t like the sound of that. Where am I going? This is serious I don’t like being away from Susan. I think it’s rude not to tell me. I wonder if I’m going to Rose and Pierre’s house, that wouldn’t be too bad.
