Jack's News!
  by your bookstore cat, 
and gossip columnist!
Heard some good news from my Canadian friend this week:

To Jack:
From: Virginia Winters

My piece of flash fiction, “The Gulls Soared,” placed third in the Winchester Writers Festival competition in the UK. You can learn all about it at:

All the best,

Here at home, Arline has been revamping old files at Smashwords as their formatting software needs must have changed, because some of the  previously formatted books no longer pass painlessly through their "Meatgrinder." They will sell any legible file on their site, but to distribute to the many, sites they market to, the files must flow through the meatgrinder without a snag.

Getting files to be accepted there make  her gnash her teeth (and confidentially they aren't in great shape. All squared off with an occassional gap. No nice pointy, sharp ones... Too much soft food when she was a kitten, perhaps?), but it's always worth the extra work, as SW passes files along to many other stores including Nook, iBook, iPhone, and Apple tablets.

My sister, Spunky, got a postcard from the vet. She needs shots! Awww, too bad.  I didn't get one. Hee, hee, hee.

Roger is cutting grass non-stop so he hasn't had time to play music for me lately. I miss that.

Storms and thundershowers with high winds did some damage to the playhouse in the Little Angles's yard next door. We have had some bad winds and lightening, too.

Please don't forget to let me know 
what you are all up to! 
Just send Arline an e-mail with 

 "News for Jack" 

in the subject line, and
I'll make sure it shows up right here.
