Cat of Letters

Annette Gulliver
Hello Alison. Thank you so much for reading and for the great review. I will change the typos. 'spruiker' is Aussie slang, and defined in the dictionary as 'a speaker; salesman; or showman'
I will add the term to the author's notes. Thanks for pointing that one out to me.
I'm sorry I'm a little late in replying, but have a family problem this end, but all is OK now.

cheers
Annette

Dancing With Dreams by Annette Gulliver

Hi Annette,

Really enjoyed your latest chapter . . . A novel change of career for Rosemary!

Voldka should be a small v. Could not spot any errors apart from this small one.

I am not familiar with the word spruicker and guess it is an Australian term, so it perhaps needs an author's note.

Good to see your novel progressing.

Best wishes, Alison

Zahir Glad you enjoyed your time out - I guess your servant didn't. Be careful of those racoons. We have skunks here. I got sprayed by one when I was a kitten. I smelled worse than Mitzy and no one wanted to play with me.

Yours purrfectly as always,

Thanks once again Alison you are fantastic mate. I like to try and put a bit of a smile on readers faces, but more so when it is time to write one of the sad or heavy chapters. Cheers Fez

Hi Fez,

I am afraid I am behind with reviewing on here, and really want to catch up with your new volume.

Well, I am glad you didn't succeed with your suicide bid, as I imagine all the readers of your wonderful poems are.

Well written, with your usual fine touches of humor, re the Queen's barbwire palace, even in such a grim chapter.

Best wishes, Alison

G'day Alison, thanks for the purrrrrfect review and rating mate. Welcome back to my two favorite pussy cats. Cheers Fez

Catching up here Fez,

Truly, this is awful - not your poem I mean - what occurred.

This is so disgusting, and so exploitive. I am glad you are writing this book and presenting these awful things that took place to the wider public view.

Best wishes, Alison

Zahir sends you purrs.

So do I my dear friend in Zahir, so do I, thank you so much for the six!

Dear Eric,

A meow to you! I could not give over than a six to this poem in which a will is changed in favour of 'cats who are confined'.

Minor point: sixty-four hyphen

Purrs to you from Zahir - I do hope your poem inspires others to change their wills in favour of cats!

This is so well written, and so true - about the chapter 17 of the novel -ironically close to where I am now in Zahir's novel.

You did make me laugh with the Clampett's hovel and Barbie's precious domicile.

I am glad you have decided to resurrect this series.

Best wishes, Alison

Alison, you are an asset to my enthusiasm and confidence. Thank you for that and for reading this series.

This is fabulous. I would bookmark the whole lot of it. But that one chapter will do to lead me to finding this again.

I can't give you more than one six. I need to preserve one for some other worthy being.

I love the 'scalded by my boiling passion'. Lol! I am so glad FanStory did encourage you to write more!

Thanks, Alison. I am so happy you found this helpful and interesting.

Zahir, himself, is very proud to be called a FanStory Critter. He feels it place him a cut above common barn critters.

Once again, I am pleased you have taken this out of mothballs. It is enlightening, the Amazon business, as well as most amewsing, as Zahir would say.

Cheers, Alison

Purrs from Zahir


alexisleech
Hi Alison, AND Zahir! Okay, point taken. Jenny can sleep in the kitchen with the dogs, and George and Jasper can have the bedroom--not! Not very good for their sex lives... No longer an 'it' Jasper is not going to like the changes, so if you, Zahir, want to give me any tips on how naughty Jasper might be, I'd love to hear them. Yes, I took this opportunity to change Michael's name to Paul because he and Michelle's names are too similar, and they're going to be seeing a lot of each other in this book. I can't have just the oldies dating. I'm now deliberating book covers in case I publish the Ebook on Amazon. So much research is making me even more confused than before with regard to agents etc. Hopefully, I'll get there in the end.
Hugs from across the pond, Alexis xxx

The girls are back! by alexisleech

Chapter 1 of the book A New Beginning

Excellent
Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted

Hi Alexis,

Was wondering how you were doing.

Zahir strongly objects to Jasper being referred to as 'it' in the furst para!

Though he says feels this does work to characterize Jenny's inferiority as a dog purrson. He says if the golden retriever is so wonderful, Jenny could sleep in the kitchen herself with it.

__

Suggest rephrase a cat radiates ( rather than radiated) so well.

Just check what is the name of Laura's son? I thought it was Michael, not Paul.


___

This seems like a good place to start the new novel. I think you definitely made the right choice by rejigging the ending.

Best wishes, Alison

Zahir would not allow me to give you a six, and says Jasper, or the model chosen fur him, looks a fine cat.
