We'll get to space sooner or later

Ok, so now that the book is pretty much out of our hands and we're taking notes for the next one, I revisited the idea of Cats in Space, with Feline Overlords. The Woman flipped through the considerable volume of notes we have and said, "Well, I don't think it will fit into this book, but I can see it working in the third book."

This is how I tell her what I want to do
Now, that sounds all right; just be patient and my Feline Overlord story idea will come to fruition. But do you know how long it takes to write and then get a book published? I'm 15 now. I'll be 16 when the second book is done, which means she expects me to hang around until I'm 17 years old.

I mean, that's doable, but not bloody likely.

So while she's taking notes for the next book, I'm also making her take detailed notes for the third, and maybe even the fourth. Seriously, doods, this thing has legs...Wick is super fun to write for and I kinda hope she takes my ideas and runs with them.

Gotta get the first one out, though. It's in the printer's paws, and as soon as we see a clean proof, we'll click on "ACCEPT" and let it fly into the public's hands. Looks like you'll get your choice of Kindle book*, trade paperback, and hardback.

A HARD BACK, DOODS!!! That's how much the editor liked it!

I haz an excited.

Okay, back to work. We have book two of The Wick Chronicles to write.

*If you read on another type e-reader, I can arrange for you to buy a copy. We just have to do the conversion here, at least for now.

Well Max, we're thrilled that you are having such a good time writing. Fun is what it is all about!

Oh, Max, Kevin and I got to beta read it! He's already excited for the next book and wants to get another cat and name it Wick. I had to promise him a hard back copy when it comes out (because the Tall One does not want another cat...yet LOL)

That is awesome, Max! My human needs to get cracking on her books... she's such a slacker compared to you!

Mr. Awesome, turning 17 is very doable! My friend's kitty just turned 20 in July! You are intelligent, healthy, creative, and talented! Go for it!

We have no doubt the book will be fantastic! As for 17, our Sasha is getting closer to that efurryday. We're sure you'll be here to keep giving the bean notes for a long time yet.

Sasha, Sami, & Saku

Have you read Anne McCaffrey's Barque Cat books? Cats in space vs Emperor Cat of the universe! Fun! It is her second of the Barque Cat books.
