Today, we will start my weekly outing a tad different. “Thou shall honour thy readers” especially teenagers with beautiful green eyes.
So, Kitteny, my pen pal from the UK, made last week the remark. That I’m always either sleeping or waking up in my published photo.
This is not completely wrong and quite easy to explain. I don’t like to pose for photos. Never was and never will. My preferred photographer (the female human) wants to take the perfect photo, all the time. Or, at least, as close as possible to perfection. This means I should pose for a photo. I’m not doing this. In general, I move at the last possible moment. Thus ruining the photo for her. To avoid this, the only possibility is taking me on photo when I’m either sleeping or when I have just woken up. This explains why the majority of the “good” photos of me are like they are. My preferred photo, the one where I’m supervising my kingdom, was taken by my favourite human. Without the slightest intention to have a perfect photo. For him, it is not the quality of the photo that is important. It’s the motif.
You can accept this as an explanation, Kitteny? By the way, if you want to see a cat that’s sleeping all the time. The pure breed would be something to look at. He’s sleeping a lot more than I do. OK, this might have something to do with our advanced age. We are no longer teenagers.
Back to actuality. What’s going on in my kingdom? Nothing much, it was raining for the last 48 hours and it still rains. It’s just not funny; I don’t get how my human can go running in weather like this. Besides, I don’t get why he goes running at all. But this is his problem and what is good for him is good for me. So, go running. Have fun. I stay in bed and stock some energy for when it’s better outside.
What else? Although someone told me I should ignore politics. Sometimes I just can’t.
There are a lot of strikes in Belgium, in general, and certainly at the moment. Railway, air traffic controllers, everywhere. The funny thing occurred with the prison guards. They’re on strike for a month, now. The trade unions are negotiating with the justice minister (Lord chancellor in the UK). They arrived at a conclusion, which, as it should be, was necessary to be accepted by the union members. The union members rejected the conclusion, nearly in unison. And the justice minister declared IN PUBLIC. The members don’t have the right to reject the conclusion. You need some serious balls to make a statement like this.
Enough with politics although it’s funny to hear these guys. In general, it just isn’t.
In order to show Kitteny that there are photos where I’m not sleeping. An oldie but a goodie.
See you next week

Obtaining the copyright for your newly complete manuscript is an essential part of protecting your work. Once you have gotten the rights to your creation, you are free to start setting up your book copyright page!

In the Shadow of the Storm
Kit is abducted in a mysterious and intriguing opening scene that leaves much room for speculation. It soon turns out, though, that she is the bastard child of Thomas de Monmouth, and she is being forced to replace her legitimate but runaway half-sister Katherine de Monmouth in an arranged marriage to Adam de Guirande. This union is suggested by Baron Mortimer and encouraged by him with a great dowry. Kit, posing as Katherine, and Adam find themselves sexually compatible in a series of explicit romantic scenes but they still have to overcome their other differences. The real Katherine had an affair with Baron Mortimer and keeping the switch hidden becomes more difficult as the novel progresses, while the political background for this early 14th century story is the uprising of Roger Mortimer against the king.

Useful info. Great
Here on Wednesday Wing we try to pass on useful information for readers and writers.
Today Alison Williams continues with more advice on Self-Publishing.
Self-publishing – essential information
Contrary to popular opinion, self-publishing isn’t just a case of uploading your manuscript and spending the royalties. There are some technical and legal issues that you need to be aware of – issues that can have a real impact on royalties, marketing and sales.
An ISBN is the International Standard Book Number. It’s a ten (pre-2007) or thirteen (post-2007) digit number that identifies a particular book. The ISBN is used by publishers, booksellers, libraries, internet retailers and others in the supply chain for ordering, listing, sales records and stock control. You do not need an ISBN to publish an eBook through Amazon’s KDP. When you upload your book, it will be assigned a unique ASIN (Amazon Standard Identification Number). If you…

BACK HOME by Tom Williams
5 out of 5 stars
Reviewed by me as a member of Rosie Amber’s Review Team
I loved this book. Although the third part of a trilogy, it is a complete stand-alone (I haven’t read the other parts), with a two page preface that gives exactly the right information about what has happened before; this is so well written that I couldn’t wait to get cracking on the main story.
Back Home is an excellent piece of intricately researched historical fiction, set in the mid-19th century, when affluent, middle class John Williamson returns home from thirty years in Borneo and India to find England a place that has gone through much change. Circumstances take him to London, where he becomes involved with the murky, criminal side…
