Meankitty Wants to Know: Lea Kirk

Posting a bit late today because the human is irresponsible. Today’s interview subject is author Lea Kirk. Lea has written a book called MADE FOR HER (and probably some other books) and has already warned me, very sassily, that they are a no-cat household. So we’ll start out with a score of negative one.

Meankitty Wants To Know…

1) So you’ve written a book set in SE Smith’s wacky world of Magic, New Mexico. How many cats are in it?

Two. And they were lucky the heroine’s boss wasn’t hungry or they wouldn’t have made it out of the alley.

MK: OH MY DOG what kind of horrible book is this! I mean, there are cats, which is better than average, but…

2) If there are no cats in it, please explain how cats would probably have made the book better (hint: they definitely would have made the book better). If there are cats how would MORE cats have made the book EVEN BETTER?

I like cats just fine, and so does my antagonist–for completely different reasons. He says that one cat for each meal he consumed during the course of the story ought to be enough. I think the heroine’s two cats that she had to leave with her mother when she moved away are the perfect amount. They are good cats and don’t deserve to be eaten. (stares down Meankitty but blinks first.) Damn.

MK: If your heroine’s a cat person, she deserves SOOOOOOOOO much better than this. How dare you, madam! Let’s see. Two cats in an alley plus negative one plus two cats at the heroine’s mom’s house plus a hero who eats cats equals NEGATIVE HAIRBALL.

3) Are there cats in any of your other books?

No, but there are horses, chickens, and a very good dog in various books from my Prophecy series.

4) How about books by other authors with cats? Got any favorites?

Greta van der Rol has a new book out called For the Greater Good: Puss in Space. That sounds good, even though I haven’t bought it yet.

5) If you personally could shift into a cat, please tell us how you would utilize this power?

I’d climb a tree and meow until someone called the firemen to rescue me.

MK: I would give you a few positive points for this if you climbed down just as the harried firemen were taking out their ladders and went and twined around their legs while purring.

I don’t know if I’m brave enough to interview more authors after this kind of disappointment. WHO AM I KIDDING?? Bring it on, writer humans. You know how to find me.

Sincerely,

Meankitty

Meankitty Wants to Know: Jason Crutchfield

Today we have author Jason Crutchfield whose contribution to the Magic, New Mexico, world may or may not be up to my standard. Let’s find out.

1) So you’ve written a book set in SE Smith’s wacky world of Magic, New Mexico. How many cats are in it?

Alas, no cats make an appearance in Miss Fortune!

MK: NOPE. NO POINTS FOR YOU.

2) If there are no cats in it, please explain how cats would probably have made the book better (hint: they definitely would have made the book better). If there are cats how would MORE cats have made the book EVEN BETTER?

Throughout history, cats have taken roles ranging from worshiped deities to pagan familiars! Cats can add a wonderful sense of mysticism to any written work! Forgive me for not including one, mean kitty! You see, my book is about a man dealing with his misfortune and the supernatural woman that turns his luck around. I was just resisting the urge to reinforce the negative stereotype about black cats being bad luck! Honest!

3) Are there cats in any of your other books?

I have two other series, mean kitty. One of them is called NANO. It’s a finished series, and it’s set in a post-apocalyptic world. There are no animals at all. Not even cats! What a terrible world, indeed! My other series, an Urban Fantasy series called Cloud IX, is two books in! So far, no cats, but that’s not to say there won’t be any in the future!

MK: I’M FIXIN’ TO HAND OUT NEGATIVE POINTS, TWO-LEGGER.

4) How about books by other authors with cats? Got any favorites?

Harry Potter stands out to me. I’ve only read the first book in the series, but the shapeshifting/animagus Ms. McGonagall is a favorite of mine, although Mrs. Norris was quite funny!

5) If you personally could shift into a cat, please tell us how you would utilize this power?

I think I would use the power to vacation from human life. We have a tendency to get too swept up in this fake world we’ve built on top of the real one, and we often forget about the wonderful simplicity of the natural world. I’d love to be able to shift into a cat and get away from it all without earning the attention of people who might consider me crazy for wanting to sleep in a tree!

I have two cats, myself! Hippo (the brown cat rolling around!) and Loulou (the gray cat sitting by watching!) I’ve attached a photo of them as well as a photo of the Miss Fortune cover!

MK: I guess, since he’s owned by two cats, this writer human whose books aren’t as good as they would be with cats can get another zero instead of a negative number. What is wrong with you humans? Don’t you want TONS OF SALES AND FAME? Why aren’t you putting more cats in these books?

Sincerely,

Meankitty

Meankitty Wants to Know: Sabine Priestley

Ok, we’ve got another two-legger today who wrote one of those New Mexico books. Sabine Priestley wrote about WOLF SHIFTERS, of ALL THINGS, when she could have written about cats. So I’m worried how the rest of this is gonna turn out. Worried on Sabine’s behalf. She’d better not disappoint me.

1) So you’ve written a book set in SE Smith’s wacky world of Magic, New Mexico. How many cats are in it?

Well, um. There aren’t any cats. But I have a witch. She should have a cat, right? Yes, she has a cat. Oh, and we’ll call her Stella! It’s just that she’s not in the book… (eyes Stella nervously)

MK: YOU HAVE NOT SCORED ANY POINTS WITH THIS. ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING THOSE WOLF SHIFTERS.

2) If there are no cats in it, please explain how cats would probably have made the book better (hint: they definitely would have made the book better).

Yes, I do see your point (And the mean glare of Stella), a cat would most certainly have improved on the story line.

In my defense, there are animals! There are these lovely horse shifters that the elves are doing bad things to. And my co-stars are two juvenile shifters who haven’t shifted into their human form as yet. Jinx, is a snow leopard cub, and Lido is a white duck. They’re great friends and get into a lot of trouble. They’re also absolutely adorable. But, not as adorable as a cat. Cats rule. Kittens especially. (pets Stella lovingly)

MK: SNOW LEOPARD! CLOSE ENOUGH. YOU GET HALF A POINT SINCE YOU HAD DOGS IN THAT OTHER BOOK. BUT THE DUCK THING IS WEIRD. I’D LIKE TO TERRORIZE A DUCK, THOUGH. CAN’T LIE.

3) Are there cats in any of your other books?

Obviously the next book I write will have a cat in it. Or at least a cat like animal. (stop glaring at me stella, I never thought about putting a cat in a book)

4) How about books by other authors with cats? Got any favorites?

Does a poof count? Gini Koch has these adorable pet poofs that I totally want.

OUCH! Stella just bit me. Fine, a cat is way better than a poof. Except poofs can ride on your shoulder and–OUCH! Stop that! Bad Kitty!
Sorry, where were we?

5) If you personally could shift into a cat, please tell us how you would utilize this power.

At the moment I’d pounce on Stella and see who wins a wrestling match. I’d probably lose.

So, our first half-pointer. But not a zero! Better than I expected at this juncture. I guess the human’s writer people aren’t COMPLETELY doggy. But there’s always tomorrow…

Sincerely,

Meankitty

Meankitty Wants to Know: DB Sieders

When my human wrote her book about dragon shifters, which is stupid because it wasn’t about CAT shifters, she paired up with another human who is owned by cats, and that human also wrote about dragon shifters. I decided we should probably hear what this other disgraceful author has to say. Will author DB Sieders earn any points on my worthiness scale? Let’s find out.

1) So you’ve written a book set in SE Smith’s wacky world of Magic, New Mexico. How many cats are in it?

Sadly there are no cats in this one, but my dragon hero Aiden is pretty standoffish at first. He could pass for an aloof but secretly lovable kitty if he had the skills to shift into one!

Heroine Gillian does NOT have cat-like reflexes, but she’s super smart, just like a cat (shameless pandering to superior species). She uses her wits as much as her magic to get out of sticky situations.

2) If there are no cats in it, please explain how cats would probably have made the book better (hint: they definitely would have made the book better). If there are cats how would MORE cats have made the book EVEN BETTER?

LOL, I’m sure there are cat shifters in Magic, New Mexico, and there definitely should be more. Probably indoor, though, since it gets wickedly hot during the day. Kitties must be kept safe, cool, and hydrated.

3) Are there cats in any of your other books?

Ooh, the heroine in my current work in progress will be adopting a cat-like creature from the hell realm. She’s a fierce, demon-hunting machine on the outside, but on the inside she’s a big softie. Naturally a demon kitten in peril would tug at her heartstrings. I mean, come on! Who wouldn’t want a paranormal kitty? Or a regular kitty?

MK: YOU GET ONE POINT.

I totally need another cat. Any advice on how to get hubby on board?

MK: Get the cat. He won’t even notice. I hear he’s gone a lot.

4) How about books by other authors with cats? Got any favorites?

Of course! Jody Wallace! I also love Jody’s dragons in Silver Bound. This collaboration was so much fun, and I’m sure Barnabas will get a cat for Nadia as a token of his affection.

MK: Since “Jody Wallace” the human whom I own did not put cats in THIS book, it doesn’t matter how many she put in other books. SHE GETS ZERO POINTS.

5) If you personally could shift into a cat, please tell us how you would utilize this power?

I would shift into a cat to nap and to hide from my kiddos!

Pic 1: Poffertje (Dutch for “tiny pancake”), my 17 year old lady kitty who doesn’t care if I shame her for planting her hairy butt on my clean clothes.

Pic 2 = Captain Jack Sparrow, my 3 year old ginger boy who loves to keep my company in the bathroom and get “potty pets.”

So, DB Sieders gets one point. I’d give her another for the nice pets and cuddles, but she always pays more attention to the other cats in this house than she does me. I do like the look of Sassy Captain Jack, though…

Sincerely,

Meankitty

Meankitty Wants to Know: Trinity Blacio

The third victim the human found for me among her fellow Magic, New Mexico, authors is Trinity Blacio. Trinity comes close to getting a Meankitty score of zero, so read on to find out how!

1) So you’ve written a book set in SE Smith’s wacky world of Magic, New Mexico. How many cats are in it?

My story in Magic, New Mexico is called Loving Phoenix. I’m afraid there are no cats, sorry.

MK NOTE: UH-OH

2) If there are no cats in it, please explain how cats would probably have made the book better (hint: they definitely would have made the book better). If there are cats how would MORE cats have made the book EVEN BETTER?

Next book, I’ll make sure there is a cat or kitten in the book, since I own two cats myself and feed two more outside. Cats always know when you need some love, climbing on you even if you don’t like cats.

3) Are there cats in any of your other books?

Oh yes, I have Master of the Cats, it’s a whole series about big cats, tigers, leopards and whatever I can think of.

Here is the first book in the series, https://www.amazon.com/Masters-Cats-Collaring-Saber-Tooth-Book-ebook/dp/B00C2IZF58/

MK: OK YOU DON’T GET A ZERO!

4) How about books by other authors with cats? Got any favorites?

Feehen has a great cat series, Eve Langlais A Lion’s Pride

5) If you personally could shift into a cat, please tell us how you would utilize this power?

Oh there would be so many things I’d love to see through a cat’s eyes and let those who pissed me off get in my way. 😊  I’ve attached my oldest kitty, she is the queen of our home and is over 20 years old.

Meankitty Wants to Know: Aidy Award

Next up in my list of participants is Aidy Award who writes about human ladies who sound like they’d have the PERFECT laps to curl up in.

1) So you’ve written a book set in SE Smith’s wacky world of Magic, New Mexico. How many cats are in it?

Well, there aren’t any cats in A Touch of Fate. My curvy geek-girl witch heroine does have a familiar, but he’s a hedgehog.

Oh, wait. My lion shifter, Fed, makes a couple of brief appearances in this book. Lions count, right?

MK: I GIVE YOU ONE POINT.

2) If there are no cats in it, please explain how cats would probably have made the book better (hint: they definitely would have made the book better). If there are cats how would MORE cats have made the book EVEN BETTER?

Yeah, Kady the witch, probably should have had a whole tiny-house full of cats. My bad. I’ll make sure Fed’s heroine has lots and lots of cats.

3) Are there cats in any of your other books?

Yes! In my book Curvy Persuasion, my heroine has a cat named Slut-slut, who reminds me a little of you, Mean Kitty. She’s a very demanding cat, chastising the heroine who is a writer for not getting her books written. Slut-slut is is based on a cat we had who had about a million surprise kittens, thus the name.

MK: YOU ARE NOW UP TO TWO POINTS.

All your books R belong to Uno.

4) How about books by other authors with cats? Got any favorites?

I’m a fan of Kitten’s First Full Moon by Kevin Henkes. It’s a very sweet children’s story that reminded me of my own kitten Uno, the naughty who loves to run around in the night, but always comes home to me.

5) If you personally could shift into a cat, please tell us how you would utilize this power?

Oh, if I could shift into a cat, I would use the power of naps! I love naps, and am often jealous of my cute (but naughty) sleeping kitties.

Meankitty Wants to Know: Jessica Aspen

The human wrote a book set in some hot, sandy place called Magic, New Mexico, and apparently so did a bunch of other authors. I can’t decide if a giant sandbox is cat heaven or dirty fur waiting to happen. Either way, I thought I’d interview a few of these humans and find out whether they’ve properly cattified their offerings.

Today we have JESSICA ASPEN who wrote a story about fairies, trolls, and gambling called TOUCH OF BEAUTY.

1) So you’ve written a book set in SE Smith’s wacky world of Magic, New Mexico. How many cats are in it?

–I’m so sorry to say there are ZERO cats in TOUCH OF BEAUTY.

2) If there are no cats in it, please explain how cats would probably have made the book better (hint: they definitely would have made the book better). If there are cats how would MORE cats have made the book EVEN BETTER?

–Obviously I should have remembered to put a cat in. I’ll speak to my own cat about bothering me more when I’m typing to remind me that a cat is a necessary character in the book. She must have been sleeping on the job.

3) Are there cats in any of your other books?

–No, and now that you mention it, that’s weird. I’ve had cats all my life, so why haven’t I put any in my books?

4) How about books by other authors with cats? Got any favorites?

–I love the Rita Mae Brown mysteries with Sneaky Pie. Always good to have a cat mixed in with your mystery.

5) If you personally could shift into a cat, please tell us how you would utilize this power?

–Since cats can obviously teleport, I would use this to surprise people and scare them by showing up when they think I’m not around.

–While my cat, Ivy, is notoriously reluctant to be photographed, she can usually be lured into posing if I put a box out for her to sit in. We call her ‘The Disgruntled One’ because she is never satisfied with our performance as cat caretakers. Luckily, she saw this interview as all about her, so she posed for the camera—this time.

Ok, so TOUCH OF BEAUTY gets a score of ZERO for cat-quality, and I should note that my human’s book SILVER BOUND also gets a ZERO. Why do these humans think they’re going to have ANY sales at all if they won’t put cats in their books? It boggles the mind.

Looks like we’re going to have to interview some more authors to find one who satisfies my criteria. If I find out these people have put DOGS but never cats, there’s going to be a sandbox incident of nightmarish proportions.

Sincerely,

Meankitty

BANZAI!

One of my favorite all-time science fiction romance series was the 2176 series by various authors and released from Dorchester about…10 years ago? I’ve lost count. I have not just one but two keeper copies of the whole series. It was fascinating, inventive, exciting, and revelatory as to what you could DO with science fiction romance. Today I’m pleased to share the new covers for Susan Grant’s two entries in the series, as the author has plans to re-release them in edited and updated form. I can’t wait to see the changes! Recommended reads.

susangrant_thelegendofbanzaimaguirenew_800px

About The Legend of Banzai Maguire:

The year: 2016. While flying a peacekeeping mission over North Korea, Air Force pilot Bree “Banzai” Maguire is shot down. Instead of the North Korean troops she expected, she finds herself captured by a mad scientist and put in bio-stasis. When she wakes, everything has changed. It’s 2176, the world is in crisis, and she is a hotly contested prize. Once, Banzai’s job was to protect democracy; now a mysterious voice claims she must bring it back.

The year: 2176. U.C.E. Commander Ty Armstrong is a decorated SEAL, combat veteran, and part-time treasure hunter. Seeking one elusive prize has become a personal obsession for him: Banzai Maguire, who was never found after her mysterious disappearance 160 years earlier. His quest to find her remains takes him into enemy territory where he discovers that not only is she very much alive, he might have already fallen in love with her. But before he can bring her to safety, they are captured by the charming, yet ruthless, Emperor of Asia. Ty vows to escape with Banzai at his side. But his captor has other plans for him—and for Banzai Maguire.

About The Scarlet Empress:

Shot down over North Korea, Air Force fighter pilot Cam “Scarlet” Tucker is imprisoned and put in bio-stasis. She is awakened 160 years later to learn that her wingmate and best friend also survived. Now the “legendary” Banzai Maguire, Bree is being held for treason in the country that was once the United States.

Cam has problems of her own—big problems. She’s in the masterful hands of Prince Kyber, the dictator whom her friend thwarted. He won’t get fooled again. With the mysterious Shadow Voice urging revolution, and her friend in chains, Cam wants the sexy emperor on her side—and maybe a whole lot more. But her role in the thrilling mission to save her country has to come first. Banzai wouldn’t surrender, and Cam won’t either. It’s time to give a royal butt kicking, and Cam knows just where to start.

Meankitty Wants to Know: Kelly Jensen Kitties

1) Jensen kitties (of author Kelly Jensen fame), tell us about yourselves. That’s the most important thing. And include glamour shots!

Jack the cat
Jack is handsome and charming.

I’m Jack and I’m going to appoint myself spokeskitty for the group. Shadow only knows how to produce a pathetic squeak that is completely unbecoming of her size, and someone dropped Sisi on her head when she was a kitten. She makes no sense. Ever. I, of course, am the perfect cat. If my fur were black, I’d have what you call a tuxedo pattern. I think my grey tabby coat is much more attractive than boring old black, however. I’m handsome and charming and my whites are always extremely white. I groom for hours to achieve this effect. Shadow and Sisi are both all black. Boring black. Well, Shadow has three white hairs on her chest. They’re weird. She should pluck them out.

2) I gather your human writes books. Does this mean she is home all day and easy to access? Elaborate if necessary. How does this benefit you?

Kelly is home all day and easy to access. The stalking begins early, usually before the sun has risen, when we hustle her downstairs to the treat container. Treats must be spread in a single arc across the floor so all three of us can get our faces down there at the same time. Kelly is then allowed to amuse herself until the child goes to school, which is when she heads back upstairs to begin what she calls work. I help by sitting on the corner of her desk. Sometimes I put my paw on her keyboard. Or I touch her face. Or I stand in front of the monitor so she can admire the grey stripes along my side. Ideally, Kelly will praise and kiss me while I do this. She doesn’t seem to understand that I do not want to be picked up at this point, however.

Around the time we’re finishing our first nap, Kelly runs up the driveway. I followed her once. She continued running up the street. There was no mouse, no vole, not even a chipmunk. Nothing. She just ran… and came back in an hour. She does this every morning. It’s very confusing.

Sisi the cat
Sisi was dropped on her head as a kitten.

Then she goes back to the computer. At lunch time she sits on the couch for half an hour to an hour. I lick her sandwich when she’s not looking, which is often as she watches the TV while eating. Then it’s back to her computer. Shadow’s on shift in the afternoon. She doesn’t get on the desk, though. She’s too lazy, or just plain uncoordinated. Sisi gets the evening shift, which is the easiest, really. That’s when Kelly returns to the couch for extended periods.

black cat in a flower pot
Shadow also likes to sit in planters.

3) What are your techniques for distracting your human during crucial writing moments, just because it’s fun?

Well, there’s the aforementioned screen blocking. I enjoy that very much. Shadow likes to sit in her chair. Kelly will often kneel at the computer rather than disturb her. Sisi is very bad at interference. She never bothers Kelly while she’s working. Our dear departed sister Java was an excellent distraction. She liked to bring small mammals inside and crunch on them right beside Kelly’s desk. I dropped a snake on her foot once. It was very effective. I should try it again.

4) What indignities and neglect have you suffered because of your human’s writing career?

She doesn’t cook very interesting food when she’s writing. It’s sandwiches, sandwiches and more sandwiches. I prefer salmon, tuna—particularly the casserole she makes with corn—lasagna, shrimp and pizza. Kelly makes very good pizza. Good sauce.

5) Tell me about the felines in your human’s fiction. How often do they appear and how big a part do they play? I hear there’s a new book about cat shifters.

Many of her characters keep company with cats. My favourite would be Socks, who traveled with Iain. Don’t ask me about Iain, I don’t care about Iain. Socks, however, was a great cat. He had Iain trained to carry him across his shoulders. He got to go everywhere with Iain. I’d like to go everywhere with Kelly. Except when she runs up the driveway. That just seems rather pointless.

best in showThis new book with the cat that changes into a human is very confusing. Why would a cat willingly change into a human? It makes no sense, particularly when, as I understand it, the cat in this book had the human wrapped around his forepaw. Nova lox for breakfast? Kelly could take a lesson from this.

6) What books in the future will feature cats? Oh, and a new fad soon to hit the shifter world — shifter pigs. Better get in while the getting is good.

She’s planning a sequel to Best in Show (the confusing book with the cat that can change into a human). It will feature an entire family of cats who can do the same thing. I honestly don’t think she understands her audience. Who wants to read about a lot of cats switching between human and cat form? They’re obviously very confused people. Kelly should write about cats that change into nothing.

The book she’s writing right now has four cats in it. I approve. Charlie, her main character, is a very good cat person. Well, except for the fact he also owns a dog. I’m very glad Kelly doesn’t own a dog.

Bacon comes from pigs, doesn’t it? I like bacon.

7) What works of fiction or cinema involving cats does your human enjoy sharing with you?

Kelly watches a lot of anime and cats seem to be, in general, highly regarded in these shows. In particular, I like The Cat Returns. She once read a book called I am a Cat. It wasn’t about a cat.sun-spot

8) If you could make one change to your human, what would it be?

For her to understand that after I have spent half an hour grooming my fur, I do not want to be stroked. Every time she touches my fur, I have to lick it again. It’s very frustrating. The worst part is that I think she does it sometimes to tease me.

Sincerely,

Meankitty

Meankitty “Bad Libs” Review: Unthinkable

UnthinkableLast month when my human shared a release day with author Nina Croft, I had the tingling experience of reading her book Unthinkable. And by “reading” I mean I sat on the book and absorbed the story through my posterior area. I read a lot of creative literature by sitting on it, so this contemporary romance with a hint of sci-fi was a gorgeous change of pace. Quite comfortable and glossy with the added attraction that my human was trying to read it, and my sitting on it was very inconvenient for her. In some ways the book reminded me of The Magician’s Nephew except with adult characters faced with boldly stupid situations. Oh, and no talking horses. Or Narnia. Or magicians. Sci-fi, remember?

The book starts off with protagonists Jake and Christa faced with a sparkling challenge. Kind of like when the sun hits an eastern facing window at my house, the one with the prisms in it, and there are suddenly rainbows and dancing lights all over the floor and walls that MUST DIE. Both characters behave unexpectedly about this. Humans, am I right? They’re so boring. Nobody does any parkour off the walls in order to kill a red dot, and there are no hairballs that get hacked up in revenge.

mkmodelnileSoon thereafter, when the character Sadie is introduced, in a scene involving shooting, the plot really starts to get clumsy. The last thing you need in a contemporary romance with a hint of sci-fi is a clumsy shooter, even if the object being shot is metaphorical. I myself am very good at shooting—shooting evil glances, shooting across the floor in pursuit of an enemy, shooting up the stairs when a human is trying to navigate them while carrying a heavy load. Madly enough, Jamie is no Aiden Quinn.

And don’t even get me started about the colonel. The colonel. What can I say about the colonel that I learned through my posterior? The involvement of the colonel in the narrative will leave readers exhausted. It’s a HUGE effort to read through your posterior when there are red dots to chase and the humans keep trying to take the book out from under you. Over and over and over. It’s enough to make a cat hiss, I tell you. The story blindly continues after the exhausting part with the colonel until it seems all cells are lost, and the ending will escape you. It escaped me because the humans hid the dang thing. I think they put it on the top shelf of a bookcase, the one with the glass figurines on it, the one I have yet to scale. But never give up, never surrender! It’s on my things-to-do list. Climb shelf, break glass, finish Unthinkable. The pace of the book was like riding on a motorcycle with a driver who is fearless on a road that winds through a mountain. This is a thing, mind you, that I have never done, as I detest vehicles of all sorts, but it sounded good.

If you are looking for a way to spend a day, this book is definitely an option. The characters and plot are so immense compared to other books on the market today. It’s probably almost as thick as one of those Harry Potter books, you know? At least from a cat’s perspective. Granted, the feline content in the book was only two kilos, not nearly enough. This could have been better, but no author is completely brilliant…not even one with dogs, cats, and a three-legged pig. So I hear. All in all, Unthinkable is a blonde tale about joy, chasing things, and being terrified. You will not be disgusted if you pick this one up!
