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.

The Evil Eye!

Miss Penny

Yes, I am giving you the evil eye. Miss Penny speaking. I am being ignored and I want to play. Susan is busy with Christmas stuff; there are boxes and bags, curly ribbon and crinkly paper all over the dining room. Baking smells from the kitchen are tempting as another pan of shortbread comes out of the oven and gets packed into gift boxes. The phone keeps announcing visitors that is exciting, I love visitors, but they don’t stay long. They pick up a book or gift box, say hello and leave again. Susan’s latest Christmas at Lavender Cottage is going fast, I’m guessing that’s because it’s Christmas, who doesn’t like a warm, cozy romance, hot chocolate and an opportunity to make shortbread (Susan’s recipe is in the back of the book) Of course, I’m a dog so I know little about any of that, except it occupies Susan’s time, which means less cuddling and playtime for me. And, because of the cold and even some freezing rain my walks have been cut short. As you can see, I’m suffering here. Perhaps you could do me a favour and put a word in Susan’s ear, the evil eye didn’t work. Over to the boss.

My Work in Progress:

Not much writing going on these days, but did you know that most authors plan books in their head long before they start writing. It is subconscious; I don’t even realize I’m planning a story in my head until the words flow on the page and I wonder where it’s coming from. Right now, I’m thinking about, Sophie at nursing school and Zeppelins over war-torn London and it won’t be long before the words are flowing again. 

Book News: 

What next! Did you know there is an award for… wait for it… Bad Sex in Fiction Award – Interestingly, these scenes are the worst sex scenes in non-pornographic, non-erotica fiction. The award winning scene is selected for a long-list, short-list and some lucky or unlucky author gets the award.

Books I’m Reading: Fiction: 

I finished Kate Morton’s latest The Clockmakers Daughter I am giving it four stars; the book is amazing and I highly recommend it but the story is complicated. My next read is Maeve Binchy, Chestnut Street, a light read about ordinary people, characters who live on or have connections to Chestnut Street. The late Ms. Binchy had a knack of drawing you into the house place and feeling that the characters are your neighbour, friend or even the odd enemy. Her husband Gordon Snell put together this collection of Ms. Binchy’s stories. something she had talked about before her death.
