Back in 2015, my then-cats, Munchkin and Amidala, remewed THEY CALL ME DESTINY: A MEOWMOIR by Destiny Kalser with Fern Field Brooks. They gave it two dewclaws up.
THEY CALL ME DESTINY is the first book in Destiny’s three-book autobiography. The second and third were supposed to come out long ago, but they didn’t. Probably because Life, eh?
The good news is, Fern Field Brooks sent me an Advanced Reader Copy of book two. DESTINY’S CHILDREN: A CAT MEOWMOIR takes up where book one left off, taking Destiny through her brief arranged tryst with a handsome boy cat, her first (and only) litter, her Big Girl Operation and subsequent menopaws, and the … well … destinies of her children. Meanwhile, Destiny’s couple, Fern and Konny, go through turbulent times, repeatedly upsetting the lives of Destiny and her kittens.
Our #2 Daughter often talks about how hard it is to take a cat to the vet or make any other drastic change in its life. “They don’t know what’s happening. What goes through their heads when you trap them in a box and take them somewhere where they get hurt? They don’t know it’s for their own good.” I think Fern comes closer to my view, when she has Destiny at least understand that Fern loves her and wouldn’t do anything to her that was supposed to be mean.
DESTINY’S CHILDREN is due out on Mother’s Day (May 9, 2021), but Fern says:
I’m hoping to do a pre-publication sale from April 26th to May 1st so book can be received in time to give as gifts to cat-loving moms.
She also says:
I have a couple of “Advanced Reading Copies” we could offer your readers if you do things like “contests” or whatever.
So here’s a contest for you.
First one who can correctly name six cats who have posted on this blog gets their name and email sent to Fern, in case she has any ARCs still available.
Contest closes March 20, 2021.
AND, Fern and/or Destiny might guest here in April to tell you more about Destiny and her children!
Meanwhile, I did St. Patrick’s Day nails. The blank ones are where the snakes would be, if St. Paddy hadn’t driven them out of Ireland.
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about luck.
