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!

 

 


Susan? Oh well, she’s been quiet this week, planning a new writing workshop, How to Write a Nonfiction Book for Your Business now that is changing gears from fiction.

If you are wondering about the next fiction book, it’s finished waiting for the editor, Believing her Lies another Lavender Cottage book. Katie and Piers are riddled with doubt, caused by a jealous misguided woman. I get to hear the story when Susan reads aloud, I’m working on the reading part. Bye for now! Over to Susan.


Remembrance Day! I love history but not always the effect it has on people. Researching WW1 for Prelude to Sophie’s War I became painfully aware of the stubbornness of powerful men that took so many lives, not just soldiers but innocent Londoners. Prelude to Sophie’s War tells of those innocent lives changed forever. https://books2read.com/u/mg0dpx

Squirly Squirrels!

Susan corrected me and said, ’squirly’ isn’t a word, Miss Penny speaking, I guess she would know as she’s the author. I like ‘squirly’ it describes the way the squirrels dart around in the grass and shimmy up trees. I try my hardest to catch them, I want to play, all furry things are playmates. But squirrels…. I can’t even get them to stop long enough to say hello. It doesn’t help that Susan keeps my leash very tight. If only she would let me run loose like the squirrels, I know I could catch up and maybe enjoy tasting an acorn or two. Now, this is neat, they hold nuts and acorns in their front paws and nibble on them. But it’s a mystery; why do they shove acorns in their mouth? It’s quite rude actually as they stash far too many in their cheeks. Susan says they store them to eat during the winter, they don’t have owners to feed them. Ah, that’s not good for the squirrels and as this is Thanksgiving weekend I am grateful that Susan feeds me every day. Perhaps I’ll catch squirrel today. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Don’t forget to come visit Susan at the Ottawa Book Expo at Lansdowne Park Oct 20th.

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.

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.

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!

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.

A New Friend!

I found a friend who’s smaller than me! Yeah! Miss Penny Speaking, Susan took me on a car ride, I whined most of the way and Susan gets mad with me but I don’t like the car; I get shoved on the backseat and I’m not allowed to sit on Susan’s knee. She says it’s dangerous when she’s driving; I don’t see why, but then I’m a dog. But, there was a treat at the end of the journey, I’m pretty popular at this house, we’ve been before, there are lots of people who adore me and this time I met Romeo, a very handsome guinea pig. I was thrilled and ready to play, he’s actually smaller than me and makes funny squeaky noises, but he didn’t seem too eager to play. He munches on hay, so I thought I’d try it. Well, I’m not sure what Romeo sees in the stuff it’s dry and tasteless, I’m a girl of substance and I like chunks of chicken, I’m not even keen on the kibble, but even that isn’t as bad as the hay. That’s all from me today. Susan says to tell you Episode 7 of The Blue Pendant will be available on Monday as well as a new issue of Susan’s Reader Group News.
