Book Launch (not a cat book)

Lynettea asked me to put a notice about her book on my blog. At first I was not sure whether I should do this. Does she really deserve an announcement?
'You haven't put in any of my poems,' I said, 'and there aren't even any poems about cats in it'.
Lynettea said, 'I have two tiger poems, Diamond. Don't be mean!'
So I have relented. As long as she knows who is in control of my blog. I thought of making her crawl across the floor on her hands and knees, but decided not to, as she looks so awkward doing that I feel sorry for her.

She launched the book, called 'A Pause in the Conversation' yesterday at Writers Week. I hope there is a bit less self indulgence from her after this and she can get back to her proper duties of looking after my few and modest wants and needs.

Hi Diamond,

It sure was nice of you to share about Lynettea's book. Sounds like she was lucky to catch you in a generous mood that day. After all, what could possibly be more important than taking care of you?

Please do tell Lynettea we're looking forward to checking out the book and her poems. :)

Thank you my friends. I will be sure to pass your messages on to Lynettea. She will be really excited if anyone actually buys one of the books. She could even get over-excited and forget to feed me.
I think I will need to calm her down by sitting on her lap.

Well done to Lynettea on her book! Now she can get back to the business of being your slave Diamond. The way it should be.

Hi dear Diamond and conCATulations to Lynettea!

Thanks for your comment on mine bloggie. Blogger is doing a mental and it won't publish your comment yet, but I'll keep trying. I hate having to use comment moderation but all of a sudden I have been targeted for spam... Duhr! Does the wordy thingy stop spam? Maybe I should try that instead. :)xxx

I agree that there is too much fuss about Lynettea's activities already. It will be going to her head and she will become unmanageable. I would hate to see all those years of my training her wasted.

Oh Diamond, please pass on my congratulations to Lynetta and tell her I'm going to take a peek now at her publication.
