NO Books went to press, or back to press this week:
But the Computer problems are fixed! At at least for now! Our local Guru was still was too busy, but said we could look online and we found a site called Geekatou.com. They worked hard for 3 days (God bless them!) and they seem to have things straightend out. Onward to Pay Authors' royalties!
Galleys that went out this week:
The Kid Who Wasn't There, by C. M. Albrecht

by your bookstore cat,
and gossip columnist!
and gossip columnist!
Well, I haven't heard from anyone this week. I'm sure someone must be doing personal appearances, or book signings, but Unless you let your Bookstore Cat know, there's no real news to post for you here so you can share it with all your friends.
Please, please, send me an e-mail so I can keep up with everyone. That's what a bookstore cat is for!
As for here at home, for awhilie things were shaping up. Arline seems perkier and her lips are pink again, instead of white (You can tell a lot about human health that way, like when a feline's nose is cold he's healthy).
The local Computer guy was Still Tied UP! Seems there was a lightning Strike at a big company in town and it fried all their computers. He said he was "Still wading though the rubble," and if we were in a hurry, Arline could try someone on line, so she did. AND they got the computer fixed! It only took them five gurus and three days! Guess it was really fouled up, huh?
I'm so happy now the printer is running again. I love watching the little thing inside shooting back and forth across the paper. First thing she did was print out all the sales data, so I got to watch a long time...
Then something TERRIBLE happened. I heard loud noises on the roof. Now, personally, I haven't been up there, but once my sister was stuck up there three days and nights, because she climbed up the trellis and then was afraid to come down.
I ran right out on the back porch (all windows out there yunno) and shingles and stuff were falling all over the ground. I thought I could hear people stomping around up there, too. Loud crashes and stuff kept falling....
Spunky and I ran right back inside. But we kept watch and listened hard. They must have known we were on the alert, because they didn't try to come inside. Then I heard Roger say something about a "New Roof!"
Don't you think he might have told US???
Please don't forget to let me know
what you are all up to!
Just send firstname.lastname@example.org a message with
"News for Jack"
in the subject line, and
I'll make sure it shows up right here.
