September Update 2019 [Pt.2]

Updated: Oct 1, 2019

Phew, it's been a crazy month considering I was only working for two weeks of it! But I have plenty more gossip and updates for you from the Curious Cat Books indie author world.


Welcome, Kier McGuinness


Please join me in welcoming horror writer Kier Jay McGuinness to Curious Cat Books! Kier signed away his soul this month, and we hope to have the first book in his zombie series, Generation Dead, out by February 2020!


This will be Kier's debut novel—we're so excited to have him with us!


WHSmith Keighley


On September 21st, one of my BETA readers took these photographs of three Curious Cat books on the shelves of WHSmith, Keighley—Bluetooth, Moving Day and Finding Pandora.


You can catch my pre-school author Pamela A. Pedder (Moving Day) there for her debut WHSmith signing on Saturday 19th October 2019.


Non-Fiction Update!


I now have a complete cover design and a release date for The Universe Doesn't Give A Sh*t About Your Book! I'm thrilled to announce you will be able to purchase your copy of my first ever non-fiction writing book on November 30th 2019 in hardback and e-book. I may even nudge up the release date... I haven't yet decided!


After receiving my BETA feedback and tinkering with my book cover design for the full spread (a hardback with a lovely dust jacket thank you very much!), I added the finishing touches and can't wait to reveal it in my October update, so be sure to check back soon!


Happy Birthday to Me!


September 25th was my birthday, and although I had to work (I love it really...), I had a fab day. Thank you so much to everyone for the birthday wishes, cards and gifts. I feel so blessed.


Here's to another successful year!


Berty Bee Cuddly Toy!

Thank you to Alison Wesley from both Pamela A. Pedder and myself for your hard work in creating this cuddly display toy of Moving Day's, Berty Bee! He is absolutely perfect—an exact double of the illustration drawn by Pamela's son, Mark Edwards.


WHSmith Ormskirk

Thank you to WHSmith Ormskirk for hosting a book signing as part of our Bluetooth tour on 28/09/2019.


Despite the awful rainy weather, we were pleased with the results and look forward to working with the store again in future.


If you came to see us or purchased a book, we really hope you enjoy it and thank you for braving the wind and rain!


Our next book signing will be at Meadowhall WHSmith, Sheffield on 12/10/2019 for the full day.


You can also catch Pamela A. Pedder at her debut WHSmith book signing (Keighley) on 19/10/2019 between 11-3pm where she will be signing copies of Moving Day. I will also be available that day for anyone who would like to discuss publishing, or to chat with me about my current releases.
