A Slim Volume of Cat Poems

Now It Can Be Revealed - I'm in the process of signing a contract with the extremely lovely Pitt Street Poetry for a slim illustrated volume of my cat poems. Many thanks to my leo life-mate, Russell, and to my smaller and furrier muse who mews, Felix.

(And, of course, we MUST have a gratuitous cat photo.)

What are you doing

Such wonderful news and Photographs of the fluffiest Cat ever.
I sincerely wish you success in your Projects and Poetry. Your Journal is wonderful and made of awesome!

We also like Poetry and you are most welcome to read my LJ anytime.
(I hope it's not too terrible)
Thank you so much for your time and involvement in Writing. Especially since I think there is a huge? revival of interest in Poetry lately around the World.

Thank you! I'm not sure that Felix is quite the fluffiest cat ever, but he's up there in the top echelons. And, yes, I think that there is a revival in poetry these days. And thanks for your poetic work too!

THanks, Gillian! Felix is indeed an oddly handsome furry beastie ;)

Please let us know when it is published as I need a copy to go on my poetry shelves. Thanks also for sending the poems the other day. I meant to reply, but haven't been in front of the home computer much.

The Lad looks magnificent.

The photo's from a few years back, but it's the this-time-of-year fur growth ;) I'll certainly let you know when the litle chapbook comes out.

Glad to know that you got those poems. And I know your life has been very not-easy lately. Sympathy.

Things are settling. Will email soon.

Are you coming to the Aurealis? Because I will see you there if you are. Also there is a birthday party for Gillian at our place at 1.00pm the next day if you and Russ want to come .

Thanks, but we won't be able to make it - my sister will be over from Perth, and my name would be MUD.

I'm suppose to be attending my mum's best friend's (and honoury aunt) retirement party, but Mum told me too late and I have Gillian and the Aurealis.

Never mine. We will see you soon.
