Catching UP!

NO Books  went to press or back to press this week: 

Galleys that went out, are still out, or went out again, this week:
IRIS DESTINY by Joseph Daniel Carr. 
   To almost everyone Colin Craft is an average kid in the 9th grade. But secretly, he is the crime fighting “Newspaper Myth,” a phenomena most people think is a publicity stunt. Few believe he can really read minds, create ice, manipulate flame, and even teleport objects with his mind. While the Myth is discounted by the public, one man knows the truth...a crooked cop named Allen Crestmere identifies him and becomes his first real enemy, fighting him not as a human, but with the same supernatural powers.

 BOOTS AND THE BRANCH BOYS, by Marjorie K. Doughty.
   Eleanor Hadley, better known as “Boots,” welcomes the “Branch Boys,” veterans from her Maryland home town, back from WW II. All of them have changed and many use alcohol to dull the pain from the devastation they’ve experienced. She falls in love with one, but thinks that marriage to him might be unwise.

Jack's News!

  by your bookstore cat, 
and gossip columnist!

Nobody sent me any news this week, though I always like to hear from you.
Arline has been  feeling pretty bad all week. I wish she'd go to the Vet.  She did some accounting and then laid down with a cold cloth on her forehead...
Roger took me, and my sister Spunky both, to the Vet! Boy you should have seen him and Arline trying to catch us! 
We both enjoy the "Avoid the Monstrous Cat-Carrier!" Game.  Spunky hardly played at all, but I made Roger chase me all over the house. I hid under the bed, and then in the closet. 
Finally, I let him catch me and gave him my  all best Hisses! and Growwwlllllls!, along with a love-bite on the hand. It was very exciting. Even Arline laughed, and she hasn't been laughing much lately.
The vet is a real nice lady. She always calls me, "Handsome!" and scratches me under the chin. The shots barely hurt at all and my diet has been working! Boy! I'm down to 17.5 pounds.  Can't call me a Fat Cat now!
Naturally we didn't play the game on the way home. The Vet might not understand about our little games, yunno!

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.
