I am loving the book! I am about half-way through, and plan on getting the second in the series today. You have some great kitty insight, by the way! It was too funny that I was reading your book last night in bed, along with my "clowder" of 3 surrounding me. My husband (aspiring fantasy genre author) had a good laugh.

I am currently recovering from a lower back disc prolapse issue, and have had to take it easy for a few weeks. You brought a lot of joy into my stay at home boredom!

Thanks! :)

Take care,
