Evil Genius and Fire of Cassa!

To celebrate beautiful Golden Eagle's Aerial Perspective's 2 year blogoversary, she is hosting an Evil Genius blogfest and asks: Who is your evil genius?

Well, my evil genius is my writer's block:

Charlie says: I move only for extra treats.


28 February sees the launch of the sequel to CassaStar by the yummy Alex J Cavanaugh!

The Vindicarn War is a distant memory and Byron'’s days of piloting Cosbolt fighters are over. He has kept the promise he made to his fallen mentor and friend - to probe space on an exploration vessel.

The detection of alien ruins sends the exploration ship to the distant planet of Tgren. If their scientists can decipher the language, they can unlock the secrets of this device.

To complicate matters, the Tgrens are showing signs of mental powers themselves; the strongest of which belongs to a female pilot named Athee. Forced to train Athee's mind Byron finds his patience strained. All Byron wanted was his privacy….

Please visit Alex here! There's a chance to win a special CassaFire goody bag! There'a also a trailer here!

CassaFire will be available from 28th Feb here:
Barnes and Noble , Amazon, Amazon Kindle

This post will be up all week so thank you so much for reading! Happy March!!!

An Unwritten book

“...perhaps an unwritten book is an even more powerful weapon than one which has been published. It has a way of filling the air with its menace or its promise, the sweet art of what might have been.”
From the beautiful Colm Toibin (source)

Bloggie friends, in the Year of the Dragon, say goodbye to your “what might have beens”.

As Captain Jean Luc Picard would say, “make it so”.

Charlie says: Beam me up!

I am busy with my own unwritten book – starting from scratch – so forgive me if I grow scarce in the blogosphere... (who am I kidding, my name is Old Kitty and I'm a blogger addict! LOL!)

Thank you all for your e-reader advice!! You are all shiny stars!!

And yes, I have hot water again! Yay!

The Aroma of Love and E-Reader Conundrum

Bloggie friends!

I stink! Literally! Just like my bad poetry!

I’ve not had any hot water for the last 6 days. Yes, during the coldest snap in all of the UK.

Tomorrow the plumber arrives. With his big wrench. Ahem.

Charlie says: I clean my foot before I taste the glittery ball. (No he didn’t!)

Of course I look forward to struggling to reach my front door for the amount of Valentine’s cards I’m going to get through the post! LOL!

Also over at lovely Kim's Musings on a Small Life, she's contemplating going over to the Dark eSide and buy an e-reader other than Kindle. Post here. She lives in Canada! Don't let that put you off! LOL! But seriously! All I can think of is that other e-readers have covers you can flip open! I like that! Any e-reader thoughts to share please?

We shall see y’all on the other side!

p.s. I don't really stink - I boiled lots of water for my daily ablutions! LOL!

A Riddle by Old Kitty

He stalks across the snowy path
He jumps on walls and shows his wrath
He blends in with the virgin ice
He purrs and meows and looks so nice!
Who is this creature, this little beastie?
Why of course it’s the one and only Charlie!

Pics taken on the 5th of February when snow finally arrived! Yay!

I hope you are reading this – I am waving a big hello to you! Hope I’ll be unforbidden soon!

See y'all at Valentine's Day! Awwwww!
