One of the best things about writing for publication is the feedback you get. That’s also one of the worst things about putting yourself out there. You’re bound to have critics as well as fans.
Today, I’d like to focus on some of the wonderful comments we get about the Klepto Cat Mysteries.
“You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll fall in love.”
“These books are always a great read built on family and cats, dogs, and other animals.”
“The characters are well-developed and the action moves right along.”
“I would describe this series as wholesome.”
“Lots of action! You have to read this book.”
“This is one great story—a heck of a ride.”
“Another awesome book.”
“Rags you and your family and friends make my day. I always have a warm, happy smile after reading your adventures.”
“Oh, how I love this series.”
And here’s a wonderful note I received this week from Amanda:
“I just finished binge reading all the books in your Klepto Cat series. I loved them all and
look forward to when book 22 comes out. It has been fun and obviously addictive to follow Rags, Savannah and the whole gang in their mysteries without being bombarded with foul language and such. I finally checked out your blog and it is fascinating to learn how you create your art and incorporate yours (and others’) cat’s personalities and quirks into your stories. Our cat is a 13 yr old stripped tabby and I have to admit that I have learned a great deal about cats from reading your books and have started really focusing on his personality and not just viewing him as simply a pet.”
The photo above is Amanda’s cat, Macavity. She says the name comes from T.S. Eliot’s “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats.” Isn’t he handsome?
As for the Klepto Cat, Rags, as you can see, he just takes all these compliments in his stride.
