Wednesday Scramble

Tomorrow's Guest

I'm very excited to have mystery author Michael Allan Mallory as my guest blogger tomorrow. Michael and his partner in crime, Marilyn Victor, have created an excellent series character in zookeeper Lavender (Snake) Jones. Their books are Death Roll and the newly released, Killer Instinct.


And Another Guest for Monday

I'll be introducing one of our fine Colorado authors, Mary Ann Seymour, who wrote Around the Square and Butterfly Messages.


What I'm Reading

I just finished Harlan Coben's Hold Tight. Now I'm reading Can't Wait to Get to Heaven by Fannie Flagg.


Katrina Update

It only took 38 shots for me to get this one good photo of Katie in action during evening playtime. Thank goodness for digital cameras.




Is it any wonder I'm not getting much writing done? When all other forms of procrastination fail, adopt a kitten.

Katie the Kutie!

Digital cameras are the best! I always used to take two shots of everything while on vacation just to make sure one came out. Expensive developing all that!

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Seems like a good time is to be expected.

Hey, cats are much more interesting than watching TV.

Oh, Katie is fabulous! And I love that quote. A Zookeeper sounds like a GREAT MC--I really like that as a premise. I will have to check that out. I like cozies (and near cozies) a lot, but I'm really not crafty, so these alternative themes really appeal to me (I like Barbara Block's pet store owner, too)

Adorable. As a fellow procrastinator, this is one form of procrastination I never thought of.

Clarissa Draper said...

Great post. What a cute kitty.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I like that last line of advice!

Jemi Fraser said...

It was well worth the effort - that's a great photo!!

I started reading Prairie Grass Murders last night and I'm loving it!! I won't have much reading time for the next few days - but I can't wait to get back to it! :)

Such a great shot of Katie. She looks like she would keep you entertained.
