April is the Purrfect Time To Curl Up With A Cat Tale, literally.
Hello April, it’s Clyde your friendly feline editor with a request to Mother Nature. Be kind not cruel. Our spring has not quite sprung yet and until it does, I’m opting for more cozy catnaps curled up with Layla.
This is my current mood. It’s black and white obvious darlings. I’m sending Layla the subtle: “Stop what you’re doing and get back to bed. We need to snuggle. Right Meow.” If you’re reading this, my advice is to take a breather. Your cat, I assure you won’t mind.
If you’re short on time, I suggest power-napping and a short story. A cat story of course. Our friend and fellow black cat lover, NY Times best-selling author Gwen Cooper is launching a brand-new monthly series of electronic short stories, called “Curl Up with a Cat Tale” on April 3 but we got a sneak peek. There will be a brand-new, true-life story written by Gwen each month–roughly 8,000 to 12,000 words in length–available on Kindle, Nook, iBooks, Kobo, etc. for $3.99 each.
Consider these stories a bite-sized nugget of fabulous feline entertainment. And let’s face it, who has the time or patience to dig into a weighty book? We or I should say, Layla, read the first story to me out loud and I Choo Choo Choose You! is a warm-hearted delight. For anyone who fell in love with Homer The Blind Cat, Gwen Cooper’s life as a fledgling cat lady and the story of her first kitten, Scarlett, is a must-read. Unlike Homer, it was not love at first kitten sight for Gwen. As as we all know, cats choose who they love and we sometimes take our sweet time. Gwen takes us on charming, fly on the wall journey back to 90’s Miami that feels like a prequel to Homer. If you’ve read any of Gwen’s books, you’ll recognize her story-telling style that feel like hugging the best cat, ever.
If this debut story of the series is any indication of the stories cued up for 2018, I say, sign up to curl up with a cat tale. Let the purring begin.
Paws up. Who likes an early bird bargain?
