Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

Author Copies

I was hoping to get my box of author copies before Stuck debuted at the Franklin County Library last Tuesday so I could give the first two place winners of the art contest a complimentary copy. My publisher generously provides a box of free copies to authors, so I like to spread the generosity along.

Alas, my copies were one of two shipments that were hung up at the printers. At first, I was disappointed— but then I hadn't been through an earthquake, a tsunami, or radioactive exposure, so missing books weren't all that big a deal. I told the winners they'd have to wait.

Yesterday, boxes appeared in my garage:

Did they contain what I thought they might? I open the box and Chloe cat-scans the contents.

Jim-Bob also cat-scans the boxes.

He verifies that the contents are indeed books, though he's a bit miffed that the box contains nothing he can actually use.

But I'm glad the books finally arrived! Now I can get copies to the contest winners, my beta readers, reviewers, and a few others I've promised copies.

So glad your books finally arrived! I can tell the cats are, too.
