Red face Ship Cats, listening to audio of it book not to hand.

(with Elizabeth Ann Scarborough)
Changelings: Book One of The Twins of Petaybee (with EAS)
Maelstrom (with EAS)
Deluge (with EAS), Its Out.

I feel like a bit like a dead glow but I'm listening to Deluge and I'm not pick up the name of the ship nor the name of the ship's cat for the accent I know it French but its overlaying so I'm not picking her up that good.

The cat's name is Zuzu and the ship I would have to look up but you're right, it's French and historical. Have you ever been to a medium or someone like that and had them ask you after they told you all this stuff about yourself that they never remembered what they said during the session? I'm beginning to think my memory is a bit like that. I'm really thoroughly into it while I'm writing it but afterwards I don't usually remember names or anything more than the general idea--rereading my own solo books now as I make them into e-books I am constantly amazed at how bloody clever I was. (pat pat--ouch--that's me hurting myself as I pat myself on the back).

Well said, I've read a few clips, and it taking time for me to understand them somewhat. And thanks for the name.

That may be the reader's voice, Ginny Star. Perhaps she doesn't always speak within your hearing range. I don't think there's anything especially difficult to understand about the book.

Yes, I've pick up later on after asking the question, its easier to hear them from the Libary of Congress, but I'm unsure at the moment, I send the book back, for with this move, I've more than I like to keep track of.

Also I've working/well be working on seeing if I can find a way to help out others so they can enjoy them.

Do the Petaybee books share the same universe as the Barque cats books? I just finished Deluge and am starting Catalyst on audio book.

No they are not, but they are in own in-universe, but doing mousing would be a job for any cat, and the ship's cat Zuzu thanks to eann I was able to get hold of CD version of Catalyst I also have book two Catacombs dowloaded, @kindan thank for the reminder, need to put both up before they get lost, while doing some cleaning,

Well, I aim to please, even if inadvertently. I didn't think I'd like this book because it didn't really seem like the concept for me (not really an animal person), but I'm really enjoying it. If eann is here and paying attention still, you do a great job with making distinct characters and voices, which I appreciate.
