The Eyes of March


I'm happy to report that despite an illegal flurry of comments tonight, Mom is towing the line and working hard on my book. The were momentary tears last night when she was trying to figure out some technical formatting thingy (yawn), but I gave her a nice snuggle and laid on the keyboard till she calmed down. Yep that's what you have to do sometimes with a ghostwriter. It's pretty rough on me, but enough is enough.

To answer some of your questions:
  • Yes it's a real book about me and technically it came before the blog, some two years ago.
  • We don't know exactly when the book will come out, but it's close. Mom is hoping for early April so it could be had in time for Mother's Day perhaps. We will definitely keep you posted. 
  • To start, the book will be sold through Amazon and there will be an e-book version too.
  • We will have some giveaways too. 
  • We are trying to figure out how to pawtograph it for our great friends, working on it.
 Uh-oh, looks like she might be watching TV, gotta go.

That was my first question - I want a pawtographed copy!

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Hey Fun, We will be ordering a pawographed copy when the time comes. The 12 of us that have eyes will take turns or have mom or dad read it for us. Radar will have to have it read to him or wait for a CD copy to come out.
Fin, be gentle on your mom and don't stress her out.

One Cats Nip said...

Oh yes Finny you read our minds! Praline I thought the same thing when I first read it!PAWTOGRAPHS!

Camp Stanhope Happenings said...

Cool. A biography! I'm looking forward to reading it.

The Island Cats said...

Stay on her, Fin! We wanna see that book soon!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

yes, we are definitely what keeps these humans going in crisis.

Cory said...

Oh I want a pawtographed copy...with some Finny furs between the pages!!!

Don't let her watch TV!!!

Cat Street Boyz said...

That sounds great Fin, You keep an eye on your ghost writer.....they tend to disappear from their goal all to often..LOL=^Y^=

MoMo said...

Sit on her, Finny, no TV definitely until the book is finished.

Can't wait to read your biography.

Oh my, to have a SIF who is an author......

Lisa, Jack and Baby said...

You are so sweet to comfort your mom while she works so hard on the book.

Elin said...

I'm far away if I want the autograph, but I wish all the best for the books! ;)

Misha said...

Something tells me it's gonna be a best seller on the CB. Will you be selling it to New Zealand (via Amazon). I could probably get Pet Mag to do a review of it!

Huffle Mawson said...

I can't wait to read it! I'll do a review on my blog and everything!

Brian said...

Okay, consider me in line for the book too...is it done yet?

Forever Foster said...

We are so excited for you and your mum, Fin.

The Creek Cats said...

We are so excited, we can't hardly wait!!!

Kea said...

She was watching TV? *Gasp*! Absolutely not permitted, the book--your art--must come first!

There will be a lot of requests for pawtographed copies, Fin! That includes us!

Simba said...

You obviously have to watch Mom very closely. No TV till it is done! Except maybe to watch LOST on Tuesdays. Do you let her have bathroom breaks?

The Whiskeratti said...

Yeaaa!!! We're very excited that it's almost ready. But keep on your Mom - hoomins get distracted so easily.

The Monkeys said...

We're very excited about your book!

the casbah kitten said...

We definately NEED a pawtographed copy! Can't wait! But, yeah, give your mom some slack. . . she's prolly stressed out.

CatLadyDiary.com said...

Such wonderful news...and a great mothers day gift idea!

Marg said...

Well like everyone else, we can't wait for the book. And Fin, tell Mom that our Mom cries too when she tries to do the technical shi*** on the computer. She needs to just take a calm pill, and not worry about when the book will come out. It will be wonderful no matter when it is ready for everyone to read. Everyone just loves you so much Fin that they get over anxious. Take care especially of your Mom Fin.

Eric and Flynn said...

You obviously have to keep a close eye on your mum. You can't have her slacking now it is so close.

Jacqueline said...

Technical stuff gets our Mom frustrated sometimes...We can't wait to read all about your life and adventures, Fin; btw, that is a beautiful photo of you=love all that fluff!!...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

David E. Francis said...

Fin,

You could ask Max, (Psychokitty), about how he pawtographed some of his books. Getting a little technical, is the online version going to be in .PDF format; or one of the reading machine formats (i.e. Kindle, Sony Reader)? I would also like to know how you would pawtograph an online version? :->

Success,
Dee

JC said...

Fin ... that is just too cool !!!

jennifer lorton said...

I'm so proud of you both! The blog makeover looks great. No crying baby sister, you're getting there. Keep up the good work. Look at all the support you have, it's going to be great.

TK said...

We can't wait!
Keep her on target, yous being a grate ghostwriter.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Fin - you will have to keep her at the keyboard with a firm paw. We know you are good at being firm but we think you may have to get more assertive and give her less bathroom and coffee breaks.
Luv Hannah & Lucy

Furkidsmom said...

We can't wait...we want a pawtographed copy too!!

Sniffie and the Florida Furkids

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

WOO~HOO...can we please have a pawtographed copy too>>>

Amy and The House of Cats said...

We were also wondering how we would get it autographed - not that we would mind having to fly out and visit you or anything! We are very excited about it!!

"The Boys" and Karen said...

She's watching TV? How dare she! You keep after her, Fin. We just know her book is going to be a thing of beauty and a terrific read.

Tristan and Crikey said...

We can't wait to read your book, Fin! We are avid readers:)

Cats in Trees said...

Funny. And here we are: happy that the spring weather got Photoguy away from the computer and in to the garden with us. He likes to read, so maybe your book is just what he needs.

Cat with a Garden said...

We definitely need a pawtograph!

The Hislops said...
