Hermione’s Kitty Korner #24: A New Cozy Mystery with a Calico Cat Star

Sorry to usurp my brother, Harry, who should’ve been posting his column but has been very lazy lately except when he zooms around after me. I’m also bumping the Feature Friday film in order to let you all know about a great new book in Debbie’s cozy mystery series. KittyKai’s Easter Mystery is now available, and the best part is that it stars a calico just like me.

I love the fact that KittyKai is on the cover of this book and plays such an important role in helping Alicia and her mistress, Gilly at the inn, solve the mystery. Sadly, the book is only in eBook form, but it’s free on Kindle Unlimited. It’s a short book that is part of the Cobble Cove short story series that now consists of 4 titles and follows the Cobble Cove mystery series with the same characters but brand new mysteries. Check them out here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08QNJ4GLQ

Also, don’t miss the blog tour for KittyKai’s Easter Mystery starting on March 22.There will be reviews, interviews, and a great giveaway on Great Escapes Virtual Book Tours.

Besides helping Debbie with KittyKai’s scenes because who better than a fellow calico or should I say, lady calico, to understand another, I’ve been hanging out with Debbie’s teenage daughter since she’s been doing remote schooling this week. One thing I enjoyed was playing with Holly’s crochet yarn, although Debbie keeps taking it away from me.

I have plenty of other toys around the house that I share with my brothers Harry and Stripey. We have a toy box, and we all like to grab things out of it. Here I am with a catnip square.

Even though it’s still cold, we are having some nice, sunny days, and it’s warmer in the enclosed patio room than it is outside. I often sit out there with Holly, Debbie, and my brothers. Holly brought the office chair from her room out there, and now there are paw prints on it. I’m not saying who made them.

One fun thing I did was climb up on a box and look into Holly’s room while she was using her computer. She opened the window, and I jumped inside. I am so clever.

That’s it for my Kitty Korner column. I’ll try to nudge Harry into updating you all on his activities. In the meantime, do check out Debbie’s new book. It’s pawsome because what else can you expect from a calico cat star?

Sneaky Interviews Rodney, the cat from Bait and Witch, A Witch Way Librarian Mystery by Angela M. Sanders

Hello there, Black Kitty. You remind me of my author’s cat, Harry. What is your name and who is your author?

I’m Rodney, and my author’s name is Angela M. Sanders.

Mice to meet you. What book(s) have you appeared in? Please list them and their genre.

I make my debut by leaping across the gabled roof of a Victorian mansion-turned-library in the cozy mystery Bait and Witch, first in a new series.

How cool is that? My author is currently reading your book and enjoying it very much. She’s a librarian, after all, and writes a cozy series featuring the Cobble Cove Library where I’m the library cat.

Are you in a series? If so, please give information about it.

Yes! I’m in the Witch Way librarian mysteries, where I share the limelight with Josie Way, my caretaker. She had no idea how much she needed a cat until I came along.

Alicia was that way, as well. These human characters are hard to convince, but we cat characters and real cats have a knack for doing that.

Are you based on a real cat such as your author’s? If so, please give further details.

Angela—my author—is a longtime cat mama, and she has a history of personality-loaded cats to draw from, but I was inspired quite a bit from her newest cat, a black girl named Bitsy la Mouche. Like Bitsy, I appeared from nowhere, and I’d clearly spent time on the streets. Also like Bitsy, my fur is as soft as woven spider webs, and I smell like a blend of vanilla, leather, and love. We both love being brushed and can’t resist sitting in boxes. I’m tougher than Bitsy, though, and male, and one of my ears is torn. Also, although Bitsy and I seem to have the power of reading minds, Josie can actually enter mine, which gives her access to tight spots her human body can’t manage.

I was based loosely on my author’s Siamese cat, Oliver, who has since crossed Rainbow Bridge.

Can you share an excerpt from one of your books that features you in an important scene? If so, please include it.

Naturally, I’m in most of the important scenes! I don’t want give any spoilers, though, so I’ll share a scene when I discovered to my great joy that the library had a knitting club! (Note: the scene is from Josie’s point of view. She and the knitters are discussing an arrest.)

I hadn’t seen Rodney all day, but now here he was, his gaze fixed on a ball of coral yarn in the basket of the knitter near the radiator. Remembering how he took off with Ilona’s purse, I kept an eye on him. “Why would someone set him up?”

“Who knows?” the woman in the maroon sweater said. “He’s gotten himself on the wrong side of lots of folks.”

“You’re saying he ticked off someone enough that they’d go and kill a stranger and pin it on Craig? I don’t think so,” Duke said as he pulled a half-finished tea cozy from his bag.

“If we had jobs here, boys like Craig wouldn’t be getting into trouble,” a tall, thin woman said.

The ball of coral yarn jiggled as its owner pulled a skein from her tote. Rodney’s haunches rocked from side to side. He was preparing for a strike.

Don’t you dare, I warned him silently.

“I’m just saying there are other folks in Wilfred more likely than Craig to off someone.”

I was just about to ask, “Like who?” when Rodney went for the kill. I was a second too late. By the time I reached him, he was belly up in the tote of yarn, with a coral strand in his mouth and his feet kicking variegated green.

“Rodney!” I yelled as the owner of the coral yarn neatly extracted the cat from her bag and handed him to me. “I’m so sorry.”

“Been fostering kittens for years now,” she said. “I should have seen that coming.”

Excellent excerpt, Rod. Thanks for sharing.

What do you like most about your role in your authors’ books?

I am so beloved! I sleep on the bed, roam the town at will, and am spoiled by the library’s patrons. Being with Josie feels like something I was born for.

That’s great. I am also loved at the Cobble Cove library even by Donald who teases me but always sneaks treats to me behind everyone’s back.

Are you a talking cat in your books or just a silent one like I am who just meows occasionally?

I don’t talk, although I understand humans perfectly well. I don’t need to talk—if I have something to say, I simply look at Josie, and she understands.

Communicating with your human is so important. I now talk to my pet co-stars, and readers can “see” my thoughts, but I still have to use non-verbal cues to communicate with Alicia and the other human characters.

What advice would you give other cat characters?

Be as naughty as possible! Go ahead and drag an incriminating letter from a villain’s purse, knock a book off a balcony edge, or sneak into a murder scene. Readers love cats, and no matter how naughty you are, they’ll never let the author write you out of the series. Live it up.

Pawsome advice and something all us character cats need to heed.

Do you have any new books coming out? Please give dates and details.

Watch for me in Seven-Year Itch in September 2021 and Witch and Famous in June 2022. As Josie discovers her powers as a witch, she leans on me more and more to help get her out of trouble and pinpoint murderers.

Those upcoming books sound purrfect.

Are you and/or your author on social media? If so, please list your links.

My author is a fan of Instagram (@angela.m.sanders) and shows up from time to time on Facebook (@AngelaMSanders). You’ll find me there, too, as well as regular appearances from Angela’s current feline roommates Bitsy la Mouche and Squeaky. Angela’s website is www.angelamsanders.com, and be sure to sign up for her monthly newsletter—it’s a good one.

I will share all that with my readers as well as your author’s blog tour. Thanks so much for the great interview, and best whiskers to you and your author on your new series.

Josie Way loved working among the Library of Congress’s leather-scented stacks—until she uncovered corruption and made herself a target. As Wilfred, Oregon’s new librarian, Josie can stay undercover until the case goes to court. But life in this little town isn’t as subdued as she expected. The library, housed in a a Victorian mansion, is slated to be bulldozed. Still digesting the news that her safe haven is about to become scrap lumber, Josie discovers a body in the woods . . .

Almost as shocking, Josie learns that she’s descended from a long line of witches—and her powers have suddenly sprung to life. With help from a spoiled alley cat who just may be her familiar, Josie’s thumbing through a catalog of suspects, hoping she can conjure a way to save her library—and her life . . .

Sneaky Interviews the Sugar and Flour Cats from Peppermint Die, An HSP (Highly Sensitive Person) Cozy Mystery by Carol Ayer

Ruff Draft Readers, you are in for a double treat today, as I have two kitties here as guests. What are your names and your author’s name?

Hi! We are Sugar and Flour, and our author’s name is Carol Ayer.

Mice to meet you both, and I love your names. What book(s) have you appeared in? Please list them and their genre.

Right now, we are only in one book—Peppermint Cream Die. But look for us in Stabbed in the Tart and Sourdough Dead—coming in the next couple of years. The books are cozy mysteries.

My favorite Genre. I’m a cozy mystery cat, too. Your books sound tasty.

Are you in a series? If so, please give information about it.

Yes, we are part of “The HSP Mysteries.” Our owner, Kayla Jeffries, is a highly sensitive person (HSP). Although cats and other animals can also be highly sensitive, we are not!

Sounds interesting.

Are you based on a real cat such as your author’s? If so, please give further details.

We aren’t technically based on any real cats, but some of our quirks and characteristics are loosely based on cats that our author has owned.

That’s cool. I was based loosely on Debbie’s Siamese, Oliver, who has since departed this mortal plane. I am honored to keep his memory alive in her Cobble Cove mystery series.

Can you share an excerpt from one of your books that features you in an important scene? If so, please include it.

We are not supposed to go into the kitchen when our owner is baking, but she left the door open after she ran outside to chase a possible suspect. We got into the sugar and flour, and, well, things turned a little problematic. Luckily, everything ended up okay.

 Here’s the scene:

 Flour and Sugar greeted me at the door. My American shorthairs looked particularly…white. They were always white, of course, but they seemed even whiter than usual. On closer inspection, I saw they were covered from head to tail in flour and sugar. My mouth dropped open. I remembered with a kick to the gut that I’d left the door to the kitchen open. I tiptoed to the kitchen, apparently thinking that if I went quietly, everything would be fine. No such luck. The floor was covered in white paw prints. My flour and sugar bins were upended, their contents spread across the counter and onto the floor.

I looked down at the cats, who had followed me. “Okay, guys. This was partly my fault. It’s very fitting the way that you got into the flour and sugar because of your names. But it’s a good thing I don’t have an inspection coming up soon.”

I calculated the work ahead of me. I’d need to order more flour and sugar from my supplier and buy some at the grocery store to get me by until it arrived. Obviously, the kitchen would require a good cleaning. I’d start after I took care of the cats.

Closing the door to the kitchen so the cats couldn’t cause further damage, I went back into the living room, the two trailing after me. I took Sugar into my lap and brushed her. But the flour and sugar were matted in her fur. I tried the same thing with Flour with the same result.

They were rather agitated, and I had to face the facts: these cats needed a bath.

After obtaining some advice from the trusty internet, I proceeded to bathe them separately in the tub. I couldn’t believe it when they ended up in the warm water together, happily dog paddling around the small space. I laughed and praised them.

They at last grew tired of being in the water. I took them out by turn and dried them with a fluffy towel. Once they were back to normal, they ran off and curled up on the bed, exhausted by their grand adventure.

Wow, Meow! Love it. Thanks for sharing that delightful excerpt.

What do you like most about your role in your authors’ books?

We love being in our author’s books! We think we have the perfect names for cats who belong to a baker. What we do best is calm down our owner when she is feeling overstimulated. We feel this is a very important role.

It definitely is. Alicia tends to get stressed, too. John helps a bit, but there’s nothing like the relaxing purr and kneading I can administer.

 Are you a talking cat in your books or just a silent one like I am who just meows occasionally?

We only meow.

That was what I did until later in the series. Now readers and my fellow pet characters can read my thoughts, but my human co-stars can’t.

What advice would you give other cat characters?

As mentioned above, we think our most important job is to support our owner and keep her calm. We suggest other cats do the same. If you can help solve a mystery, too, we say go for it! (We aren’t especially helpful in this area!)

That’s where you two differ from Sneaky the Library Cat, but although I sometimes solve the crime and often save Alicia, I let her take all the credit.

Do you have any new books coming out? Please give dates and details.

Not for a while! Hopefully, we will have a new one out in October of 2021.

Good luck with that.

Are you and/or your author on social media? If so, please list your links.

We are not on social media, but our author is. Here are her links:

Thank you so much. It’s been a pleasure having you here, and best whiskers to you both and your author on your book.

 Thank you, Sneaky! We’ve attached a picture of our author and a picture of how she envisions us.

Pawsome! I’m also sharing your blog tour and giveaway with my readers.

Kayla Jeffries, home bakery owner and HSP (Highly Sensitive Person), has arranged her life just so to avoid stressful overstimulation. The California oceanside community in which she lives proves the perfect venue for the quiet and peaceful existence she desires. She happily spends her time baking, walking along the beach, and spending time with her close friends.

But when Kayla discovers her elderly friend Trudy Dillingham has been strangled, she vows to do anything she must to help bring the killer to justice, including overcoming the stress and sensory overload involved in playing amateur detective. Using her HSP talents of attention to detail and ability to read other people’s emotions, Kayla eventually cracks the case, all the while juggling two cats and a dog, non-stop orders for the Christmas holidays, and a budding relationship with handsome restaurateur Jason Banks.

Hermione’s Kitty Korner #23: Debbie’s New Cat Book is on Blog Tour

Hello and Meow. Hermione here with exciting news. My grandma’s new cat book, Pet Posts: The Cat Chats, is on blog tour. Beautiful, full-color photos of me and my brothers Harry and Stripey are included with many of the Kitty Korner columns we’ve written. There are three other cats in the book with us whom I’ve never met — Floppy, Holly, and Oliver. These cats were before my and Harry’s time, although Stripey knew Oliver, Debbie’s Siamese, for several years.

What might interest you all, besides the great gift idea for any cat lovers on your holiday list, is the $20 Amazon gift card giveaway you can enter and win if you’re lucky like we were for having been adopted by Debbie and her family. That story is featured in Pet Posts, too.

You can follow the blog tour from the host blog that lists the schedule for the tour. It kicks off today, December 13, at Silver Dagger Book Tours. Don’t miss the excerpt and guest post that introduces all the cats in the book.

Here are Harry and I posing with the book.

 

I hope you will consider picking up a copy for yourself or giving one as a gift to one of your cat loving friends. It makes a purr-fect holiday book.

Sneaky Interviews Seaview from Cat Conundrum, A Crazy Cat Lady Cozy Mystery by Mollie Hunt

Hello, Mr. Cat. Welcome to Sneaky’s the Library’s blog. What is your name and your author’s name?

Hello, Sneaky! Why, I’m called Seaview, but that’s a long story. It isn’t my real name, you see. My author’s name is Mollie Hunt. (That is her real name.)

Mice to meet you both. What book(s) have you appeared in? Please list them and their genre.

Cat Conundrum is the name of the book. It’s Mollie’s  7th cozy mystery. I’m a first-timer, but it may not be my last.

I hope it isn’t. You sound like you would make a great recurring cat character.

 Are you in a series? If so, please give information about it.

As I understand it, the Crazy Cat Lady Cozy Mysteries are a series, but you don’t have to read them in order, so you can start with mine. He-he! They feature Lynley Cannon, a sixty-something cat shelter volunteer who finds more trouble than a cat in catnip. She certainly has her hands full with me.

Sounds pawsome.

Are you based on a real cat such as your author’s? If so, please give further details.

I am a what humans call a Maine Coon cat. I’m big and strong with luxurious long silver furs, and though my author has seen cats like me at cat shows and in pictures, alas she has none of her own.

You must be quite handsome. I’m handsome, too. I’m a Siamese. I was loosely based on Debbie’s cat, Oliver, who has since gone to Rainbow Bridge. I am honored to keep his memory alive in the Cobble Cove mysteries.

Can you share an excerpt from one of your books that features you in an important scene? If so, please include it.

Here you go! In this scene, Lynley has agreed to foster me as the police search for clues to a locked-room murder!

Cat Conundrum, Chapter 6

The microchip helps pets reunite with their people, sometimes across many miles. If your microchipped cat gets lost, a vet or shelter can easily trace you as long as you keep your information current.

The cat sat, comfortable as could be, on the back of the couch, staring out at the ocean. He was a large boy, extremely large, with the luxurious, long fur and sweet little tufts on his ears indicative of the Maine Coon breed. The color was a silver-gray with hints of cream on his underside. Samples of the blood on his paws had been collected for analysis, and as soon as we’d got back to the guesthouse, I’d washed off the remainder, revealing sparkling white booties. He was gentle and friendly, nothing like the aggressive wildcat the police had first presumed him to be. I’d been calling him Seaview, after the museum where he was found. He wore no tag and I couldn’t feel the distinctive capsule-shaped lump between his shoulders that would signify a microchip, though the shelter would check once their volunteer managed to make it by. Still, the perfect fur, the calm demeanor—he had to be somebody’s cat. I was certain someone would come forward to reclaim him soon.

That didn’t explain how he’d come to be in the study with the dead man. Had the man brought him along with him? Had the cat snuck in somehow? Once the victim had bolted the door, he would have been stuck for the duration.

The severe scratches on the victim’s face had not been done by a cat, even though on first scan, they had fooled Denny Paris, a seasoned animal investigator who had seen his share of maulings. But there was blood on Seaview’s paws—how did it get there if he weren’t the aggressor?

“Lots of questions, eh, Seaview?” I asked, giving his sideburn a scritch for which I was rewarded with a low, rolling purr. “I don’t suppose you could tell us the answers. You know it would save us all a lot of time and trouble if you would.”

Seaview’s only reply was a love-blink from his beautiful sea-green eyes.

What a purr-fect excerpt. Thanks for sharing.

What do you like most about your role in your authors’ books?

I get to be both the villain and the hero. But you have to read the book if you want to know the twist.

Wow, Meow! I must do that or at least ask my author to read it to me.

Are you a talking cat in your books or just a silent one like I am who just meows occasionally?

Well, well, if you have ever heard one of my breed speak, you would not mistake it for a mere meow. Sometimes I trill, sometimes I scream, most of the time I just purr. But as to human-talk, I do not bother.

I was that way once myself at the beginning of my series, but now readers can “see” my thoughts and so can my fellow pet co-stars in the series. It’s lots of fun, but the human characters in the books can’t understand anything we pet characters say, so we have to use regular feline methods of communication – purrs, meows, yowls, etc.

What advice would you give other cat characters?

My friend and fellow feline, always be yourself. Though your author may think they want you to do this or that, it’s up to you to guide them in the purr-fect direction.

Excellent advice, Seaview.

Do you have any new books coming out? Please give dates and details.

The next in Mollie’s series will be Adventure Cat, coming fall of 2021. The feline star of that story is Spot from Cat’s Cradle, a Crazy Cat Lady short story, who will be making a startling comeback. I, however, may not be around for a while since my home is on the coast. There is a familial tie with Lynley’s friend Special Agent Denny Paris, so you never know. I could show up any time.

Mollie also has a sci-fantasy coming out at the beginning of 2021. Cat Winter is the second book in the Cat Seasons Tetralogy where cats save the world. Those cats do speak, but I don’t know them personally.

Your author sure is busy. You remind me of Salem, the black cat who made a guest appearance in our latest mystery, No Gravestone UnturnedHe also may return at some point but now resides in another state.

Cat Conundrum (Crazy Cat Lady Cozy Mysteries)
Cozy Mystery
7th in Series

A locked room. A dead man. The cat is the only witness, and he isn’t talking.

Locked-room murders are being committed in sleepy little Long Beach, Washington. As to the killer, Sheriff Matt Boulder has no idea who or why.

The sheriff needs help. He calls his friend, animal cop Denny Paris, and gets a surprise bonus: Lynley Cannon, amateur sleuth. This isn’t how the sixty-something cat shelter volunteer envisioned her beach vacation, but when Denny asks her to join him in the search, how can she refuse?

While the officers investigate one line of inquiry, Lynley takes a different approach. Her only clues, a cat found at the murder scene and a rich man’s missing wife, lead her thread by thread to a scheme more insidious than fiction.

But who will she tell when she turns out to be the one in the locked room?

About Mollie Hunt

Native Oregonian Mollie Hunt has always had an affinity for cats, so it was a short step for her to become a cat writer. Mollie is the author of The Crazy Cat Lady Cozy Mystery Series, featuring Lynley Cannon, a sixty-something cat shelter volunteer who finds more trouble than a cat in catnip. The 3rd in the series, CAT’S PAW, was a finalist for the 2016 Mystery & Mayhem Book Award. The 5th, CAT CAFÉ, won the World’s Best Cat Litter-ary Award in 2019. The 6th, COSMIC CAT, is the winner of the Cat Writers Association Muse Medallion Award for Best Cat Mystery 2019.

Mollie’s sci-fantasy, CAT SUMMER (Fire Star Press) also won a Muse Medallion, this time for Best Cat Sci-fi Fantasy. CAT SUMMER is the first in her Cat Seasons Tetralogy where cats save the world from an evil older than history—twice! Mollie published a stand-alone mystery, PLACID RIVER RUNS DEEP, which delves into murder, obsession, and the challenge of chronic illness in bucolic southwest Washington. Two of her short cat stories have been published in anthologies. She has a little book of Cat Poems as well.

Mollie is a member of the Oregon Writers’ Colony, Sisters in Crime, Willamette Writers, the Cat Writers’ Association, and the Northwest Independent Writers Association (NIWA). She lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and a varying number of cats. Like Lynley, she is a grateful shelter volunteer.
