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!


Save Some For Me  – And what about you?

Could you survive an abusive man and raise five children alone?

This was a brave, insightful, revealing, and well written book of what must be one of the hardest experiences any person can go through. The courage and grace with which you tell this story is a truly affective reading experience…….  Judge’s commentary: Writer’s Digest

A Blocked Sink!

Miss Penny speaking, my ears are curling or is it burning? Normally Susan is a refined lady but when the kitchen sink got blocked this week, it was not a pretty scene. Cursing as she plunged with this big black thing, that made a weird sucking noise and sprayed water everywhere. Then she poured some terrible smelling stuff down the drain and we waited…, and waited…, at least the cursing had stopped, then we waited some more and bingo—nothing happened. Then there were the huffs and puffs as she carried dishes to the bathroom sink, did I mention the cursing, muttered under her breath. I could hear it—dogs have super hearing you know. Guess who saved the day, my favourite dog sitter Pierre. He fixed it in no time and Susan is back to normal, well sort of. She’s preparing to give a reading in Winchester on Sunday. Psst! I think she’s a bit a nervous. Oh yes, and the good news the new cover for Save Some for Me – A single mother’s memoir is almost ready just a few tweaks on the font. It is fabulous, even after the sink fiasco Susan did a happy dance when she saw it. Hee, hee! That’s a sight to see. I’d better finish before I get into trouble.

Miss Penny Speaking!

That’s me! I’m guessing Susan couldn’t think of a good title today. She has been busy this last week. We have been searching for the right image for the cover of the 2nd edition of Save

Some For Me – A Memoir. (In case your wondering, she decided not to change the title) I felt like a bobblehead doll, as I watched Susan scrolled through thousands of photo images, they all looked good to me but the one she picked is truly amazing. (Here have a quick look.) Then it took days to get the right blurb for the cover, in case you’re not sure what a blurb is, it’s the description on the back cover and then there are reviews and a bio to add. Psst! I got a little tired of listening as they all sounded the same, just a word changed here and there. The changes made a difference to Susan I could tell be her smile. I got bored and buried my bone. I didn’t do a good job I just couldn’t get the blanket to cover it. I gave up and ate it. Quite tasty those milk bones, you should try one sometime?

Susan’s a bit nervous, she’s speaking at the Winchester Memorial Hospital Fund raiser on September 15. As if it isn’t enough to listen to the blurb, I now have to listen to a very long passage from The Blue Pendant, she’s reading at the fundraiser. I’ll be able to recite it with her. Actually, I was invited but I piddle when I get excited, most of the time I’m good and don’t have accidents but when I’m scared or excited, I can’t help myself. Anyway, Susan said I can’t go until I learn not to piddle.

A whole load of books arrived yesterday ready for Winchester and the Ottawa Book Expo in October. It sure will be an interesting fall.

It’s My Birthday!

Happy Birthday to me! Miss Penny Speaking. I am two years old, in human terms fourteen. I’ve heard references to the terrible twos or turbulent teens. Well, not sure I like either of those because there is nothing terrible about me, I’m a princess and what does turbulent mean? Not me! I’m a cute, charming birthday princess… I don’t say this often but I’m a dog and at two years old I’m all grown up. I am, after all, Susan’s assistant so human age references do not count. No party but I had treats, steak for supper and a new ball. The ball is so much fun; it bounces in the air and I can chase it, although it rolls under things, especially the vanity in the bathroom. I can’t get it out so I whine, then I giggle as Susan gets the umbrella, closed of course, and gets on the floor, butt in the air, not very elegant—hee, hee, but funny—she sweeps the brolly under the vanity and bingo out comes the ball; within minutes it rolls back under. Too many time and it stays there. Whining doesn’t always work.

 

Susan had another busy week, so I didn’t have a party which was disappointing, but I forgive her, because some exciting things have happened. She has been invited to speak at a hospital fundraiser in Winchester, there was a book signing at Coles yesterday and a new article for Ottawa Book Expo. I am very proud even if I didn’t a birthday party and I didn’t mention being left alone all day. I might have to go and chew the cushion—love that while fluffy stuff.

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.

Miss Penny’s Photo Gallery!

It is too hot to think, Miss Penny speaking, so for this weeks blog I thought I’d do a photo gallery of me. Starting with yesterday when Susan set up her summer office on the balcony. I’m snoozing in my bed, giving Susan a nod of approval as she moves the plants and chairs from one place to the other. It must be a people thing because everything finished up where it started. 

 

When I was young!

Interesting Me!

Bones – Episode 2

Do you like the title? Miss Penny Speaking, I think Susan’s writing talent is rubbing off on me as the bone story continues. It is summer and hot, very hot, so Susan and I work on the balcony, nine stories high with a gorgeous view of the Ottawa River and a lovely breeze. My bone is a Milkbone, doggy biscuits in the shape of a bone and just my size. I can take them out on the balcony, except there’s a big step and I can’t jump with it on my mouth without dropping it. So, I look cute and wag my happy tail, see the video, and Susan picks me up, but I drop the bone, anyway. It’s times like this that I realize I’m more person than dog. If that is true, then why doesn’t Susan eat Milkbones?  Not sure what Susan has been doing all week, there’s only one new announcement, but here’s one from me my first video. Cute & Happy Dog

What?

What’s that look for? Miss Penny speaking, I’m burying my bone. Susan gives me these tasty treats called Milkbones and sometimes I want to save it for later. I could leave it on the floor but then someone might steal it. Not sure who? Now I think about it, there’s only Susan in the apartment and I’ve never seen her chew a Milkbone. She should try one, they are delicious. I get them for treats and when Susan has her morning coffee. Psst! Susan has a cookie with her coffee and sometimes she has more than one.
