Greetings. Okay, there’s a reason I’m showing you kittens. Can you guess? That’s right. The Ramirez family has a new member. Her name is ZuZu, and what a story. I’ll give you the short version.
Six weeks ago, my daughter and her boyfriend rescued a kitten stuck in a bush. She was barely a week old, so her eyes and ears were closed. Her incessant crying got their attention—and good thing. When they walked in the front door, my daughter said, “Don’t be mad.”
Well, it’s been a long time since we owned a cat. But we welcomed the little thing with open arms. My wife and daughter have been bottle-feeding her, and currently, they’re attempting to transition her to kitten food. So far, no success. We suspect she might be a vegetarian. And here she is at six weeks. Adorable, right?
Just a reminder that Faithless is available for preorder at 99 cents. The publication date is May 16. At that time, the price goes up to $4.99. Here are a couple of pull quotes to whet your appetite:
“The mystery of Jane’s death and her subsequent revival is at the dark heart of an unfolding biological experiment that will leave readers reeling, and the final reveal is a shocker.” —The Prairies Book Review
“Raul and Jane’s mutual respect and a desire to protect each other are the book’s emotional backbone. Its action scenes are punctuated by the complications of their soft, sad love.” —Forward Clarion Reviews
