In my last post I mentioned, among other things, the following:
"I submitted a 3000+ word story to a pet themed publisher for consideration for an anthology book project; this is something new for me, another step, alongside the earlier 2 guest blogging posts and 2 poetry rejections, this year. I want to do more of all this, going forward, even eventually organizing my 4 blogs worth of archives as I ponder publishing options for the best of their material.
Doing all of these involves my learning new things, even getting help, if possible."
Well, I have an update....
Over the summer my friend Janiss Garza, LA cat blogger, cat book author and editor of FitCat Publishing, "a boutique publishing and media company that specializes in highly niched print and digital books, and digital artwork", released a "call for submissions" for rescue cat stories "written in First Person Cat (in other words, through the eyes of the rescued cats)".
I learned of the effort when the deadline was extended to the end of October and decided that one of my creative muses, Elvira Mistress of Felinity, had a story to tell, about her own arrival in my life, and the first few months in her new forever home.
