I’m Seriously Miffed!

I’m miffed, seriously miffed! Miss Penny speaking. As most of you know I am Susan the author’s assistant. I listen to her stories, give my approval, or give her cuddles and licks (she’s not always happy with the licks) when things don’t go

I am the Best Dog Assistant Ever!

right. It’s mostly a rewarding job. So, why am I miffed you ask? Because I discovered, while Susan was redesigning the covers for the Lavender Cottage novels, that she features four dogs in that series, and I am not one them. Can you believe that?! I don’t mind that Buddy Boy is the main dog character, he is Katie’s dog, the main character in the story. She’s had a difficult time and needs a cuddly dog. Buddy Boy was Susan’s dog and my predecessor. By all accounts a charming laid-back gentleman; I think I would have liked him. But these others, Loving Lily had better not be loving Susan and Protector Sam, he’s enormous and what’s he protecting? I might be little but I can protect Susan just fine, even if I don’t like to bark. Although I did bark the other day; a strange man was cleaning our windows. I just wanted to make it clear I was watching him. So, Lily and Sam are whopping big retrievers and seem to have no connection to Susan, except they belong to Katie’s friend Judy, in the story of course. Then, there is Arthur, more my size and a wiry energetic dog like me. He belongs to this handsome guy called Piers. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out where this story is going—Katie recently divorced and Piers, a secretive handsome single guy. Even I can figure it out and I’m a dog, well sort of. However, none of

A Second Chance at Love

this explains why I am not one of the Lavender Cottage dogs. Susan says four is enough and I will have to wait for another series. Well, we’ll see about that! Very seriously miffed! The evil eye won’t work today, I’m not talking about Susan’s writing because I need to sulk, then I’ll get cuddles. Susan speaking, Poor Miss Penny, I’m sorry but I promise you’ll be top dog in another book. I’ll take over today and we’ll have cuddles. Miss Penny speakingHee-hee! It works every time.  Just a note to add I’m still working on changing the paperback covers and uploading books 2 and 3. of  Lavender Cottage Novels and they are spectacular. I’m back to writing  Heart of Sophie’s War more coming next week.

Sqirrly, Squirrels & Spring

Where to start with a title like that? Miss Penny speaking. I’ve noticed that this lockdown, because of the corona thing, is causing my two legged friends to get a bit testy, hence the word squirrly. I’m told by the author is not a word, but I’m a dog so, to the grammar police, its doggy language. It also reminds me of squirrels, and there are a lot of them as we get into spring—even spring is debatable. I saw flakes of snow this week, plus a cold wind that blows right through my fur and I have a long thick coat right now. Hm, we’ve not been to the groomers for a while, close because of this corona thing. Gees, it is making life difficult. Back to squirrels. My walks are exciting as I watch the squirrels play. I try to chase them through the trees. Did you know a squirrel can run up a tree in a flash? I tried following by standing on my hind legs and leaping at the tree, nothing happens and I fall over.  Susan laughs, very embarrassing. Hm, let’s change the subject and see what Susan has been up to this week.

Well, she is very squirrly, not from the corona thing but learning how to advertise on Amazon. I don’t understand this but it requires, scraping data, spreadsheets and thousands of keywords, that’s definitely a perfect definition for squirrly. Susan tells me that Amazon is not shipping her print books, so she needs to sell more ebooks to buy my kibble and chicken. What? Yes, I have fresh cooked chicken breast for my breakfast and supper. I know I’m spoilt but then remember I’m an adorable little dog. Psst! If you’d like to have a copy of one of Susan’s nine books, try Book Depository, or Contact Susan or click on the links below. I like my chicken and having to eat plain dry kibble or, ‘shudder’, canned food doesn’t bare thinking about. Love you all, Stay safe Miss Penny and Susan.

She’s Home!

SEE IF I CARE! 

Phew! At last Susan is home, Miss Penny speaking. Rose and I were out walking one day and I thought I heard Susan’s voice calling me, “Pen-Pen,” Susan’s pet name for me and then I saw this woman walking towards me. Could it be? Was it? Yes, it was Susan. I was beside myself and ran around in circles and peed; I just couldn’t stop myself and peed again. Finally, Susan picked me up, it felt so good to have her home. However, now I have another problem. I like being with Rose and Pierre, so now I miss them. I had a brilliant idea and suggested we all live together. It seemed they didn’t agree. As that will not happen, it is

MY NONCHALANT LOOK!

time for me to sulk. First, I stopped wagging my tail, then I didn’t eat my supper. Susan tried to play with me but I ignored my toys. She picked me up and whispers in my ear; I love that, but I didn’t smile or lick her face (not that that is allowed) I was nonchalant, but secretly soaking up all the loving. I kept that up for two days and then I had to eat; I gobbled down the chicken and even cleaned my dish of kibble. So, it was game over and I stopped sulking. But I stay very close to Susan. She is not getting away again. Before Christmas Susan said she was making me a new blog with my own domain. Where is it? I’m told to be patient it’ll be here at the end of the month.

Mom’s Visit

Yesterday was both exciting and traumatic, Miss Penny Speaking. Kathleen and Lila, (my mom) came to visit. I got so excited I peed and Susan was mad with me. My mom is a very nervous type; she has had a hard life. They rescued her from a horrible place called a puppy farm when she was pregnant with me. Kathleen took her in and looked after her and then I was born, I had brothers and sisters who all went to nice forever homes and my mom stayed with Kathleen and I came to live with Susan. After the ladies had tea, Kathleen took us for a ride in her new car. I hate the car; they tied me up in the back with my mom. I whined and kicked up a fuss, which upset my mom. Then Kathleen and Susan left us in a parking lot. Can you believe that? Susan went into a store and Kathleen went into a restaurant to pick up supper. By the time they returned, I was frantic and then I, sweet little me, got into trouble again for upsetting my mom, who was shaking and trembling. Poor Mom, she never completely got over the puppy farm. I’m so lucky to have Susan. Psst! Don’t tell her I said that. I’ve heard rumblings about training and discipline, not sure what discipline means but it doesn’t sound like fun. Now, this is quite worrisome, Susan is not writing at the moment, although I have seen evidence of WW1 research, which could mean she is preparing to start a new Sophie book. Oh, Susan said to tell you Kobo has some specials, see below and to  remind you that everyone is invited to join Susan for her presentation on Dec 7th 1:30 – 5pm  pop in or stay a while.

All Mine!

Miss Penny Speaking, and speaking rather fast, because I am excited. You will never guess what Susan has done, she bought me a present. No, it’s not a toy or a ball, although I could do with a new ball I lost my pink one somewhere, oops like I said I’m talking too fast. Susan bought me a domain name, MissPennySpeaking .com and that means that I will have my very own blog/website. How cool is that? But don’t click yet as Susan has to build the website. Does that mean she has to go to one of those home building places for bricks and drywall? Susan does a lot of things but I’ve never seen her with a hammer or screwdriver. Actually, that is scary. Susan tells me websites are built inside laptops. Um! That’s weird, but what do I know I’m a dog, sort of. Anyway, I am very excited but it might be awhile as Susan is crazy busy selling books.

Go see her today at the Jack Purcell Centre at the Small Press Book Fair. Noon – 5 pm  320 Jack Purcell Lane, Ottawa. You can browse all her books, perfect gifts especially the Christmas at Lavender Cottage, such a warm romantic story. Yup, I’m a romantic too, and it’s packed with Christmas recipes including shortbread and there will be samples. Jungles bells, jingle bells… I am so happy I’m singing! Bye for now!

A New Pink Coat

It’s cold -5c, Susan said, and I didn’t believe her. Miss Penny speaking, even with my sweater on, which I hate, and it didn’t help much. Especially when I had to stick my butt in the snow for you-know-what. I shivered all the way around the block until Susan picked me up and cuddled me. Then she disappeared, I hate being left alone too, but she bought me a new coat. At first I sulked but this morning we walked to the park and I never shivered once. It is very smart, bright pink for a princess-dog, a fur-trimmed hood and a cozy fur lining (faux fur)

 

 

Except it had this label that said  For cats too, WHAT! Cats in coats, unbelievable!

Sticky Burrs!

Have you heard of ‘burrs’ or perhaps I should say felt burrs, Miss Penny speaking? They are little round things covered in hooks, the seeds of the Burdock plant, and they stick to everything including me. During our walk the other day I got covered in them. I had one hanging from my face, several in my paws. Susan pulls them out and that stings a bit, but I know it’s for the best. But, we missed one. I was in agony with this thing digging into my tummy. It twisted into my fur so the fur pulled every time I moved and the little hooks of the burr dug into my skin. I hardly had a wink of sleep as it was morning before Susan found it. She had to cut it out. Oh, what a relief! Can you guess what happened next? Yep, the groomers! Kind of like adding insult to injury. Now, I’m cold, I had a lovely long coat, but it was getting mattered and those burrs were a problem. Although I say it myself, I look glamorous. Susan’s catching up with admin work and getting ready for the Small Press Book Fair, signings to finish the year off.

Raining Cats and Dog!

Really! Cats and Dogs, Miss Penny speaking, cats hate water and avoid getting wet. I’m a dog—sort of—I certainly don’t fall from the sky, I might hurt someone or worse, me. Ha, Susan is on that Google thing and the Everyday Mysteries website says it may come from the Greeks ‘cata doxa’ which means ‘contrary to experience or disbelief’ or ‘it’s raining unusually hard.’ So, why don’t they just say that instead of involving perfectly good dogs. The human rational, baffles me. Hey, what do I know, I’m a dog—sort of. Anyway, no dog or cat (the cat would be a problem, I haven’t found a friendly cat yet) fell on me today but I got wet. Susan wrapped me in a towel and cuddled me dry, I love that. Oops! I almost forgot. Susan says please subscribe to Susan’s Writer Group News. She promises no spam, I can vouch for that, just updates and interesting book trivia. Having an email list of fans is perhaps the most important thing an author can have as it allows the author to announce new books, events and you don’t miss out on anything new. Well, that’s me for this rainy day.

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.

Abandoned!

I am shocked and traumatized!  Susan went away and left me… me… the princess! Miss Penny Speaking, I’m a bright dog, so I kinda got the idea something was going on. First I noticed, a tote being packed with a stack of notebooks and pens too many for one person. The next morning an empty suitcase case was put beside me on the bed; I was still snoozing. I opened one eye and thought What’s that doing there? Why is Susan standing at the closet door, sighing and muttering under her breath? Clothes were hauled out of the closet, inspected and either returned to the closet or thrown on me, well, the bed. But, it gets worse, my bed, blanket, toys, treats and kibble are packed in a big bag. Then I put two and two together, clothes plus suitcase plus my things meant we were going away. Oh, cool an adventure. And I was right; me, Susan and all the bags were put in the car, did I tell you I hate the car, but it’s okay today. Then, another treat we stopped at Rose and Pierre’s, but something odd happened they took my bags out of the car but Susan’s stuff did not appear in the hallway. You guessed it, Susan disappeared, the car drove off and left me behind; can you believe that? Rose gave me lots of cuddles and told me Susan was off to the Ottawa Independent Writers Retreat and Workshop in Westport and would be gone for a few days. Huh! See if I care! I lowered my head and made the best sad eyes yet and it worked more cuddles and treats and I settled in for the weekend.
