Storytime with Athena and Marie #WhiskersWednesday

We hope you are all staying safe and healthy.

I've been giving Mum ideas about fun stuff to do during the lockdown. The UK is currently in week 3.

First, here I am with my wise eyes speaking to Mum. Good job she understands cat. Well, at least she can pick up on my thoughts.

 Remember my rescue story that we published in 2013?

Well, we have decided to start promoting it again because it had disappointing sales. It has not made much money for the animal charities we support. At first, we were donating partial earnings but then we started donating 100 % of royalties, which we still continue to do.

Mum wishes she had the money to support lots of charities but she hasn't and times are tough for everyone right now.

Anyway, I told her to read my book to share with everybody during quarantine and lockdown. We posted Chapter 1 on YouTube today. Please subscribe and share. Mum says she will try to post a reading 2 or 3 times a week. We know many of you have already read my story and we are very grateful for your support.

We thought recording the video with Mum reading my story to me would be a treat for my fans 😻😽

Here's the video. Mum apologizes for the blurriness. She blames both her camera and her poor eyesight. She was also in a rush to film.

Good luck with your book. Mom and our late sister Emma learned that writing a book is a lot of work but a lot of fun too. Selling the book is a nightmare. If you don't have serious promotion which is hard to do on your own, it is a sad road.

Aww, Athena likes to hear her own story!

Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. My best to your mom. ♥

Thanks for sharing the wonderful video of your mom reading your story. We hope that this will get around that you will be able to sell more books to help the animals in need. Have a great day.

What a great idea! Our sales have tanked. Maybe I need to tell our mom to start promoting again!

I've thought of reading chapters of my book but my southern drawl is so thick that some people might not understand me. Haha!
