Harry’s blog

November 30th, 2014

I’m still on holiday, waiting to get comments back from my editors so I can launch into the next draft of Fetcher. They’re taking a while to get back to me, but please don’t think I’m complaining! It’s so nice not to have a deadline, and to be able to potter around without worrying about getting back to writing.

Of course I still like to have some sort of writing on the go, just to keep me entertained. Something with no deadline attached to it. Something just for fun.

Which ties in very nicely with the fact that Harry (my cat) has been pleading for his own blog for some weeks now. And I have given in at last! I’ve set up the wordpress page and handed over the computer. Now Harry is busy tapping away at something that he insists will make him famous.

Harry takes a moment to think about what comes next.

Unfortunately he won’t let me read it, so I’ve got no idea what it’s about. He says it is the story of one of his past lives, but he has never been a particularly trustworthy cat. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

He assures me that his first post will be up soon. πŸ™‚

    Wow! I wonder what Harry’s blog would be about! I cannot wait to read it, maybe my cats would like to read it as well… I only have 4 more days of school which is a huge relief!

    I hope you enjoy your holidays everyone and MERRY CHRISTMAS πŸ™‚

      Perhaps Harry’s blog will inspire your cats too, Lilli. Who knows, this might be the start of a literary outpouring from the world’s cats. πŸ˜‰

      How come you finish school so soon? It’s only the beginning of December!

    Good morning Lian!

    My daughter Chelsea is a big ‘The Keepers’ fan and so far has the first two books in hardback, signed by yourself when you visited the local primary school. I would love to surprise her for Christmas with the 3rd book in the series and was wondering if there was a way of purchasing a signed copy? She was away the last time you visited school and was devastated she missed seeing you. Would love to hear back from you, please feel free to email me.

    Warn regards,
    Anna

    Wow, Harry! You went from being Lian’s backyard-cat to a blogger! Woah- now that is progress. Also, it would be absolutely adorable if you post any photos of yourself strutting it on the runway! Good luck and have fun Harry!

    Happy holidays Lian! Your holidays came early! I still have this week and next week of school! SAD FACE πŸ™ But I am excited because Graduation is next Tuesday! YAY! We have to learn 4 dances which is absolutely tiring but very fun. (Hip Hop, Jive, Tango and Freestyle) And my dance partners are somewhat OK at dancing- just kidding! They are ah-mazing dancers! And I haven’t even bought my dress yet! Eeek! Then, after next week…..HIGH SCHOOL. *scared*

    That reminds me, has Lillian e-mailed you her review yet of Sunker’s Deep? She said she has but I am not entirely sure if you have received it.

    Well, happy holidays and Merry Christmas, Lian and Harry! (and anyone who is reading this too! πŸ˜€ )

    Happy writing!

    With lots of admiration,
    Io πŸ™‚

    Dear Lian,
    I think my school finishes quite early…
    My teacher was from Hobart and said that they were able to almost celebrate Christmas at school!
    I cannot believe that Year 7 is just around the corner!

      I think quite a few of my readers are heading off to Year 7 next year. How exciting! And a wee bit scary. πŸ™‚

      1. Io says:

        Year 8…….

        1. Lian says:

          Are you really going into year 8 next year, Io? My apologies, I’m a year behind! πŸ™‚

          1. Io says:

            πŸ˜€ That’s OK. Yes I am. I wish I could go back in time to start year 7 all over again, though! Best year yet!

            Io πŸ™‚

          2. Lian says:

            Well that’s a good sign. Hopefully at the end of year 8 you will be saying the same thing. In general, I find that life does improve as you get older. πŸ™‚

            P.S. Have you checked out Harry’s new blog yet?
