May your February be filled with love… ~ Bette A. Stevens www.4writersandreaders.com

February is knocking and it’s time to get up and answer the door. That means lots of edits and rewrites for my debut novel, featuring Shawn Daniels, protagonist from PURE TRASH—the short story prequel to the upcoming novel. Since I plan to release the novel this spring, February is the perfect month for me to get out those colored pens (editing) and get that first draft tuned up and ready to share with my first outside-of-the-house editors. Our darling kitty—Midnight—is on high alert to help at every turn. She loves pens, eye glasses, paper clips and everything that glimmers or moves. And, of course, she has to make sure that there’s nothing for her in my tea mug. Midnight was busy playing with her catnip mouse (photos) earlier today— giving a glorious partridge time to munch on some of our delectable crab apples—before she went out for her morning stroll.

I’ll have a Valentine’s Books Giveaway to share with you soon. Meanwhile, stay warm and enjoy the wonderful Month of Love.  ~ Bette A. Stevens

Comments on: "Love Month is Knocking!" (4)

  1. I haven’t finished it yet, but what I’ve read of PURE TRASH is wonderful. Hope your editing goes well. Cats are always a big help. My daughter even dedicated her dissertation to her cat. Blessings, Natalie 🙂

    • Thanks for the note and your faithful support, Natalie. I’m so glad that we’ve become friends. Your blog is a great inspiration to me and to many, I’m sure. Midnight is quite a character. Perhaps I’ll dedicate a book or a story to her one day…. She was a runaway who adopted us five years ago. She is a delight! I brush and comb her each day; she has a tree cookie for manicuring her nails; and, I often misquote Shakespeare to her: “Vanity, vanity, thy name is Midnight.” Blessings, Bette

  2. I will be delighted to read and review. Hopefully I’ll be sufficiently recovered to read it. I loved Pure Trash and was hoping there’d be a full length follow up. So glad it’s coming out soon!

    • Thanks, Marilyn… You’re such a dear friend and encourager. Have you had your surgery? Thoughts and prayers go with you. Bette

Thanks so much for stopping by to join the conversation.
