#Caturday – New Cat and Free Books

Here is my new cat. Our youngest grandson made him for me for Christmas. So far, he and Katya are ignoring each other, and that’s the way I like it. He’s smiling, flat, and made of brown Play-Doh, so his name is Happy Brownlow.

HappyBrownlowHe’s my very most favoritest present! He’s going to live in my office, I think.

ALSO: my soon-to-be publisher, Hydra Publications, is having a 20-book giveaway, none of them mine, alas, but mine will be available soon. Meanwhile, enter the giveaway and get some super-duper reads!

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character gives a hand-made gift. Is it received well? Poorly? How does it make the giver feel?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I love handmade gifts the most, especially when they are from children. They warm my heart because a handmade is so much an expression of love!

      I agree! I still have things the kids gave me when they actually were kids 🙂 For a while they would say, “Do you STILL have that ratty thing?” Now that they have their own kids and their own kids’ handmade gifts, they understand. 🙂
