A Dickens of a Cat


A Woo Hoo mail day, yesterday, as I received my contributing writer copies of, A Dickens of a Cat, and Other Stories of the Cats We Love. Woo Hoo mail always warms the cockles of a writer's heart. :-)

A Dickens of a Cat, and Other Stories of the Cats We Love, was published by Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group, September 2007.

Woo Hoo and Yay! Indulging in a bit of revelry here, and doing a happy dance! A book or magazine featuring one of our stories affects us writers like that. However, the cats at my house weren't impressed by all the revelry, but the dogs joined me in my happy dance!

And today, Monday, September 24, 2 more new books arrived that I have stories in-

The Best Teacher in the World, published by Howard Books, A Divison of Simon and Schuster, September 2007.

And The Best Grandma in the World, also published by Howard Books, September, 2007. Both books distributed by Bordon Books.

Yay!

Your welcome. That's odd. I didn't post that comment until after 7 am! So, I'll be honest--I wasn't up at 5 am, ha ha!

Hmmmm, Michele, maybe we're in a different time zone, huh? Can being 13 miles apart put us in a different time zone? Haha, just joshing. Maybe the pc is in a different time zone.

Giggles,

Yes, the story was published earlier in Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul. You may find a copy of that in your library. I hope you find it and get to read it. Thank you very much for the nice comment.

It's early Sunday morning. I'll be getting ready for church soon, and we always go to a large Sunday buffet after church. Have a wonderful Sunday!

Renie,

I haven't heard of any books that Guideposts are publishing. Is someone carrying on for Phyllis? It would be interesting to know.
