What D'ya Know #2: Hemingway Cats

Image
Happy hump day! Today I introduce a second installment of the "What D'ya Know" segment and what I wanted to discuss Polydactyl cats, or better known as "Hemingway Cats". These are basically cats that have more then the typical 18 digits (5 on each front paw and 4 on the back) and they get the nickname because the famous writer was such a fan of them. He was given one as a gift and after his death, his home in Key West, FL was turned into a home and museum for the decedents of his polys. His home is now occupied by 40-50 of them.

Mine apartment happen to be occupied by one: my kitty Duchess! If you can't tell from the pictures on my site, she has 6 digits on each front paw. When I adopted her from the ASCPA, they told me polys like her were considered lucky so I was sold!

Though I've always been a cat lover, I never heard about these "Hemingway Cats" until I adopted Duchess. One of the other rumors I've also heard about these cats, aside f…

Thanks for stopping by my blog for the Lovestruck Giveaway hop! I love lovewhich is why I write romanceand I think this hop is the perfect opportunity to reveal my upcoming release, Because This Is Forever. I loved writing this story because like myself, my heroine is a hopeless romantic...or at lease she was...
-----
Former hopeless romantic, Mia Trent, is crushed when the love of her life, Nate McArthur, reveals that he doesn’t want to get married—or have children. But it’s too late. Mia is already pregnant and her dream of “happily ever after” is sharply put to an end when she decides she’d rather keep her pregnancy a secret then to force Nate into a life he obviously doesn’t want.

Five years later, Mia must reach out to Nate for help or risk losing her home and shelter for their child. Stunned and outraged by the sudden news of his child, Nate proposes a compromise: give him the summer to get to know their son and he’ll give Mia the money to save her home. But Nate finds he isn&#…

My Sexy Saturday...

From BECAUSE YOU ARE MINE

He was on fire now. She pushed her body fully against him and his need quickly took over his self-control. Grabbing at her lush bottom, he lifted her against his thick erection. She cried out but he caught the soft whimpers and continued to devour her.
With her arms wrapped tightly around him, he moved them forward, never lifting his mouth from hers. He braced her against a tree and lifted her so that he settled neatly between her smooth thighs. She immediately wrapped her legs around his hips, enveloping him within her soft body.

Summer's Coming to an End...

I can't believe how fast the summer flew! It's already August and thankfully the weather has been very bearable so far--both in NY and Florida, which I just got back from. Before then, I was in Atlanta at the RWA National conference, which was very inspiring, motivating, and informative, as always. I learned a lot, met plenty of great people, and took back a suitcase filled with books (seriously, it weighed 45lbs when I checked it in at the airport!).
But I also brought back many insights and blogged about them at Savvy Authors, where I guest posted on my take on the Author Survival Guide: 10 Things All Authors Should Know.

As we enter the last month of summer, I'm excited to be wrapping up edits on my debut novel, BECAUSE THIS IS FOREVER! It's a story of Mia and Nate--along with their son, Mikey--and their road to everlasting love. This family took me on a powerful journey and I can't wait to share them with the world =). More details to come on this story later t…
