Interview With The One and Only Black Cat

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE
THUMPER…..BLUE

 Kali, Remember when Mom read the three cat mysteries to us? Black Cat’s Legacy, Black Cat and the Lethal Lawyer, and Black Cat and the Accidental Angel? Thumper (Black Cat) from the mystery series is here today. His Amazon e-books are $3.99.

 I loved those books. He solves mysteries with his ancestor’s memories?                                                                    

 Right. He’s come to talk to us and invite any of our friends to interview him on their blogs.

                                                               .

Welcome, Thumper!

                                                                 

 

 Thank you my furry friends.  You both are lovely ladies.  You think so?  How nice of you to say but my furs seem to be sticking up this morning….I tried some spit on my paw but…..Kali, quit mewing   about your furs.  You’re not the boss of me!

I’m single but in a committed relationship with a Blue Russian.  He is very strong so keep your paws to yourself.  Kali really, do you have to be so blunt? I’m just sayin’ it like it is…no mixed messages here.  Don’t mind Kali, she’s on meds that seem to make her a pushy broad.

 Do you have a soul-mate?  Of course you have a soul-mate….that cute little halo gal…what’s her name? 

 Angel. She looks a bit like you, lovely Kali, but have no fear. I’m devoted to my Angel.

 Angel sounds wonderful….is she everything she’s cracked up to be or do her wings slip every now and then?   She is spunky, clever and beautiful. But sometimes she is too ambitious for her own good.

 Is your character based on a real life cat?

 Boots was my inspiration in body and spirit. He posed for all my photos.

Boots, what a cool name….he does walk a lot in the last story, “Black Cat and the Accidental Angel.”  You know the old song, “These Boots are made for Walking.”   MOL  Good one Shoko. Mew, mew.MOL….haha, that’s funny Shoko but I am called ‘Black Cat’ in Accidental Angel and my next mystery.

 Can you tell us a bit about your next mystery, Thumper?

Oh Yes, my next book,  Black Cat and the Secret of the Bells, will be published next year. It’s about a clue Angel finds in a soldier’s WWII diary that sends Kimberlee to Austria to solve the mystery in the diary.
                                                

 Really?  Could you tell us a bit more of what Thumper and Angel will be facing in the next mystery?  The cats face skullduggery in Fern Lake while Kimberlee seeks a key and a stolen WWII treasure in Austria.

So Angel is in, Black Cat and the Secret of the Bells?  Yes, My Angel, my one true love, is always by my side, helping me keep my family safe and on the straight and narrow.                                                                        

Tell me Thumps….do you mind if I call you Thumps  Please call me Black Cat, like in my last two books.  Ok Thumper, um…Black Cat…. just why would my friends want to interview you when I have already interviewed you?  Because Mom has made me a true hero, an extraordinary cat and an all around unforgettable fellow. I might even give you my autograph. Ohh,,,an autograph of the Black Cat….I like that.  Perhaps you could pad out your name on my place mat.

How can our friends schedule a full interview for their blogs?

 Write to mom at  Elaine.Faber@mindcandymysteries.com.

Black Cat, thank you so much for an informative interview.  We can hardly wait for “Black Cat and the Secret of the Bells.”  Yes, Black Cat thank you for visiting, you are a charming man cat.  Angel must be so proud.

Read Me A Story

Piglove and Gentlestitches are hosting this reading of a story.  We intend to do a book review also.                                                        Reading                                                                          We read many cat books because of our story time every night, some are good and some are alright.  There are very few books out there that we do not like at least some part of the story.  However, books written from the cat’s perspective have a special place in our hearts.  The following book employs this technique with great success.                                                                                 aaakaThe book we are reviewing is called, “Black Cat and The Accidental Angel” written by Elaine Faber.   This book is the third and as yet the final book in the series.  From the moment we started reading……we were hooked.   The story begins where the previous story, “Black Cat and The Lethal Lawyer” leaves off.    Thumper and his family are heading home from their visit in Texas.  They are not far from home when suddenly, the SUV is in an accident and the carrier with the cats in it is thrown from the vehicle, landing in an awkward place that is impossible for the family to find.  The adventure begins as Angel and Thumper try to find their way home.   One massive problem exists, Thumper has lost his memory and doesn’t even know who the cat is with him.                                                              accang

These two cats have many adventures while attempting to walk home.  Mom laughed, sniffled and down right cried.  She got that attached to the kitties and their struggles.  The plot twists kept her reading when she normally would quit for the night.  The ending came way too quickly for us.  So in short, I would say if you want a boring book to read so you can fall asleep quickly, don’t get, “Black Cat and the Accidental Angel.”  However, if you want an excellent read with cats that are real to life, DO buy, “Black Cat and the Accidental Angel.”  The only thing left for us to do is get Elaine Faber to write a fourth book in the, “Black Cat” series. MOL

The author forwarded pictures of the cats that were her muses for Thumper and Angel.  I thought you would be as delighted to see them as we were.

Boots alias Black Cat/ThumperThis charmer’s name is Boots alias Black Cat and Thumper.

These precious kitties live with the author and happily share their lives.

Now, without further adieu mom is going to read part of the first chapter of, “Black Cat and The Accidental Angel” on video.  Please excuse her feet as she was relaxing and laying back.

Mom only read a portion of the first chapter.  To see how the story goes, you’ll just have to get the book.

Hope you’ve enjoyed peeking in our bedroom…we enjoyed the company.  Ya all come back now…..ya hear. MOL                                                                   Kali and Shoks
