Sunday Selfies: Engrossed in a Great Book


Truffles: Mommy, stop bugging me with the flashy box! I'm busy!

Melissa: Sweetie, I'm just trying to help you take your selfie for the Sunday Selfies blog hop.

Truffles: Well, it's going to have to be a sideways selfie this week because I just can't drag myself away from this book. It's a mystery about a tortie!!!

Melissa: Oh, you grabbed my Kindle and started reading the new Cattarina mystery by Monica Shaughnessy. I bet it's really good.

Truffles: It sure is! Remember how I interviewed Cattarina about her life as Edgar Allan Poe's muse? She was so nice. The Black Cats is her second adventure, and she also has a new short story out called To the River about her early days. I think it's so cool that such a famous author was owned by a tortie!

Melissa: I think it is too. You know what else is really cool? The author of these wonderful stories, Monica Shaughnessy, is sponsoring our blog this month, so I really hope our readers will check out her books. I just know they will enjoy them as much as we do. Now how much longer do you think you're going to be with my Kindle, Truff?

Truffles: SHHHH!!!! I'm getting to the best part!
