Catching UP!

Books that went to press, or back to press, this week:

THE MURDER OF SEC. JUDD CANE: Adventures on Capital Hill Series, Vol. 2.     by Celine Rose Mariotti
       Do you ever wonder what it would be like to have U.S. Senators who really did their job, got along well, and stood up for what was right? This is not your typical book about politics.  It’s the perfect U.S. Senate!  Throughout the book, there is an ongoing health care debate.  Senators Andy Thompson and Hunt Wagner lead the way with a resolution to try to stop President Robinson and Secretary von Schumann from sending troops to Botswana.  But a real adventure begins when Senator Thompson is kidnapped and Brian Travors, the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State is suspected of being involved.  Senators Hunt Wagner and Darius Clemens head a committee hearing to get to the truth.  President Robinson suffers a heart attack and Vice-President Barry Newman takes over temporarily.  This book is a real page turner!  Read it and you’ll have hope for tomorrow!

STORYBOOK II by Elena Dorothy Bowman
   Within the pages of this book are stories that my mother once told me; of certain incidences that she remembered. But mostly it is compiled of the memories that were a part of our lives. Doors were never locked friends and neighbors were welcomed anytime they happened to pass by. And it was an era where whenever someone visited at dinner time, an extra plate was always set out for the visitor to join in the family meal.
Galleys that went out, are still out, or went out Again, this week:

   If she doesn’t, will her best friend ever forgive her for seeming to share more than a casual friendship with the her steady, Nathan? 
THEN CAME HEAVEN, by Gilda Arruda
   Then Came Heaven is a source of inspiration and guidance; it serves as a loving example of what it means to live no matter where the truth may lead you or how difficult it may be. It is also a lesson on the patience of change. Each page is the embodiment of hope, trust, knowledge, and self-acceptance
to develop a sense of worth within ourselves.

Jack's News!
  by your bookstore cat, 
and gossip columnist!
I have to say that this cat feels neglected. Please, please, please, send me some news for my column.
Oh! Oh! OH!!
I almost forgot!
    Author Andy Nunez will deliver a  lecture at the CBEC (Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center) March 28 ($5 a head, subject: Pirates), contact the CBEC in Grasonville for details. The event and it's time is not listed on their web site, but Google tells me the Center is located at:
600 Discovery Lane
Grasonville, MD 21638
PH 410-827-6694

ATTN: Joey Carr.  PLEASE send us your cover. You are doing a fine job promoting your book, but we have no book at all for either of US to sell, because it has been edited six weeks ago and cannot be completed  until we get a cover! If your artist can't be moved, I'd be happy to help Arline design one...How about one with a nice blue cat? Or even a calico one like my sister?
And Here at Home
Our Dave is not improving as quickly as we had hoped, and he sounded really down about it on the phone, today. (Yes, I do KNOW what he says, because Arline is so deaf the only way she can hear him at all is to put him on Speaker.) I sure understand why he's impatient, but this is going to take time. He had an awful lot of work done.... 
I am almost ashamed to have mentioned my own operation, which was only ONE day in the hospital. Dave was operated on, on Monday and this is Friday already, and I KNOW he is getting homesick. Especially since Shelley is here at home, because  she had to go back to work. Healing takes time... so I'm keeping up my cat prayers.  After all, every little bit helps.

The whole Chase family is grateful for all your prayers, thoughts and good wishes, too. It means a lot!

Our Sid is home, feeling a little better every day. I sure will be glad to see him when he is able to visit again.  :D (He and his lady, Kathy, have a very free hand with the cat treats whenever they come!)

Please don't forget to let me know 
what you are all up to! 
Just send me an e-mail with 
 "News for Jack" 
in the subject line, and 
I'll make sure it shows up right here.
