Jack's News!
  by your bookstore cat,  gossip columnist, and feline friend. 
Arline posted the best news above.  I do have some gossip, though.

The daughter of Write Words Author Andy Nunez (who is working on a book about Pirates of the Eastern Shore) graduated. Gee when we did his first book I think she was nine. Of course I was only a baby then.

Write Words Author Ray Morand has finished training for her new position. Congrats, Ray, on the new day job. But don't give up on writing. I hear you have a new one in the works. Way to go!

The vet says I'm too heavy. I ask you! I am a bookstore cat. I lead a sedentary life! Do YOU think that 18 pounds is too heavy for a midlife tomcat with big bone structure? After all, I'm no spring kitten.

Somebody PLEASE send me some juicy gossip to take my mind off my diet.
