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!

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

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.

Tissue Mischief!

Breaking news: Susan’s Reader Group News, latest edition and Nothing is Fair in Love and War  Episode 7 of The Blue Pendant is ready for viewing on YouTube.

Mischief!

I’m a happy kind of dog, Miss Penny Speaking, but I can get into mischief. I’m not sure why but I love the feel of soft paper, especially tissues. This morning we had visitors, as you know I love visitors, except no one was paying any attention to me. ME! Miss Penny, ignored. So I looked around to see if I could get into mischief. I spotted it. A white tissue just popped up out of someones’s handbag. I snuck in grabbed the tissue and quietly carried it to my bed and ripped it into pieces. That got Susan’s attention, but not for long. All she did was take the tissue away from me and went back to talking. Huh… see if I care! I must think of something else. While I’m thinking I should tell you about the new book Prelude to Sophie’s War the new Sophie Series. Susan is very excited at she has the cover and although I’m a little ticked off at being ignored, I have to admit the cover is stunning. Here’s a sneak preview.

Prelude to Sophie’s War – A novel, first in the Sophie Series –

 

 Deep, hidden scars of a tragic childhood and romances gone wrong, bubble to the surface and haunt Sophie as she arrives in London to start nurse’s training during WWI. London cowers under bomb attacks from German Zeppelins. Innocent, terrified Londoners join shell-shocked, battle weary soldiers under Sophie’s care at Bartley Hospital. Battling her own demons she comforts others, risking her own wellbeing and nursing career. Will Sophie succumb to her demons or will she use them to strengthen her passions?

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.

Put A Sock in It!

Miss Penny Speaking, I thought that expression meant be quiet, but it’s my blog day; I can’t be quiet. I’m assuming the connection is socks. I love socks, especially when Susan takes off her socks. I wait and watch as she peels it off her feet then I pounce and grab the first sock and wait for the second one. I wish Susan had four legs like me then there would be four socks. I shake the heck out of it, I can only manage one at a time, then take it to my doggie bed and bury it and guess what, they disappear. I thought maybe there was a hole in my bed but then I saw Susan ‘unbury’ the socks and take them away. That’s okay because by bedtime tonight there will be another pair of socks. Do you think I have a sock fetish? Note, No blog last week, But I looked cute, even though I was squeezed into Susan’s Reader Group. Miss Penny tucked in blankets

So what has Susan been up to this week? The first of the Sophie series has gone to the editor. Susan is starting a new romance in the Narrowboat Romance series; Katie Saunders’ B&B is doing well, old guests return and new guests stir up trouble for Piers and Katie’s complicated romance. 

 

You just want a quick pleasant read. Try Susan’s new short e-story Romance at Mr. Booker’s Bookshop available on Kobo, Amazon Apple, Nook.
