The Kitten's Tale

Welcome to Sally's book-a-day-for-2017 blog. If unfamiliar with the blog, scroll down.

 The Kitten's Tale (post 199) The Kitten's Tale is the fifth in the Pet Vet series.
In this story, Trump's old friend Higgins is in trouble, but he won't admit it. The homeless kitten, Magnus, needs Trump's help as well. Can she find a solution for both of them? Meanwhile, there's something nasty on the loose in Jeandabah Park...
 We named Magnus Claw'd and Higgins after Magnum and Higgins in the '80s show Magnum PI, just for fun. We were hoping to do a spin-off series starring Magnus and Higgins, but the publisher preferred another dog series instead.  The title came about because Cranky Paws had already been renamed "The Cat's Tale" for the UK market, so we thought we might as well preempt the problem of different names for the same story. The Kitten's Tale is one of our favourites.  
The Kitten's Tale, to our surprise, features on a YouTube video... 

About the Blog 

Sally is Sally Odgers; author, manuscript assessor, editor, anthologist and reader. She runs and Prints Charming Books. (Sally is me, by the way, and I am lots of other things too, but these are the relevant ones for now.)

The goal for 2017 is to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. If you enjoyed a post, or want to ask about any of my books or my manuscript assessment service, leave me a message.
