My books arriving

I am listening for the delivery van. Some of my poetry books will be arriving soon.

They mostly have Lynettea's work, but Diamond has one of his poems included. It was first published by the National Library of Australia in The Little Book of Cats. I have one of my poems in it too, written from a human viewpoint about cats. Not difficult for a feline to write, after our long study of humans and their curious views.  There is also a poem about missing Diamond, by Lynettea.
The book is called Travelling Through the Unexpected, by Lynette Arden. It is published by Ginninderra Press and available through online bookstores and as an ebook. epub and Kindle. Booktopia has the epub version. The Kindle version looks good on a Kindle reader or computer, but on Android the stanza breaks vanish. Why? Very annoying. I am careful about stanza breaks. The stanza breaks are fine in the epub version on Android. 

Lynettea went to Salisbury on Friday to talk on the radio about writing and the book.
She read out a giraffe poem, not mine. But she also read out a short piece of my writing.
It was very hot that day and I worried about her safety. My food supply vould have been in danger if anything had happened to her. That may seem heartless, but it is the practical approach we take as cats.

pbafm.org is the radio station.
Words Out Loud is the program and it is being broadcast tomorrow 9 January  starting at just before 11.30 am Adelaide time. For her sake I hope it sounds okay.
We may listen to it together tomorrow.

I am pleased you are getting my works. Thank you. It means a lot to me and Lynettea will be happy when I tell her!

How exciting that your human got interviewed on the radio! Wow!

I wished that I could have been interviewed too. But it was too hot for me to go. She had to take a bus and a train and walk. And she said I would have been too nervous in any case. (and I hadn't been invited, but I think they might have enjoyed my being there).
