Periodically I’ve shown pictures of Rascal, my now two-year old kitty, who like all good kitties, runs our family and our house.
You’ll notice here from his expression that he’s peeved, and has erected an upper body blockage on the final pass line edits of THE ABC’S OF KISSING BOYS. But if you ask him, it's with good reason...
--While I was writing the first draft, he often napped on my lap. He’d wake to play or snuggle, and I suppose it’s possible at some point I told him the title of the book would be THE ABC’S OF KISSING KITTIES. Could have happened.
--Unlike TOP TEN USES FOR AN UNWORN PROM DRESS, which features a guy named Rascal, this book falls short. Oh, there’s Tristan and Kyle and Luke and Clayton...but Rascal? Uh, no.
So, being the rightful head of the household, he has enforced a STOP WORK order until these two things are remedied. Or appropriate amounts of shrimp and buttered toast (I kid you not) are delivered.
I’m thinking the food stuffs might be easier to pull off than a late-date title and character change, but what also might work is a compliment or two about his good looks or character from the Internet world. Anyone care to help coax His Majesty off my pages? (I’ve got a deadline, people!)
