We had some issues with the photos taking a bit longer to go online. They are all present now along with 2 new photos.
I also noticed that the videos on the page was no longer functioning. This has been fixed as well.
Some are probably wondering why this latest book is being released so late. Many know we had a fire last year and have moved back into the house. We lost some rabbits as well and settling back in hasn't been easy. I haven't been able to write for some time due to this. We are slowly working to get book 6 done and continue on with the series'. I appreciate your patience and continued support!
"Freckles the Bunny Series, Book # 7: Freckles and the Big Book of Manners" is on hold for a short spell. The book is a bit time consuming and with temporary writing issues, this isn't the best book to be working on at this time. So that I am not taking 6 months to write (I've been on this one for at least 6 now), I've decided to do a short story book in between. I'd wanted to do separate books on some of the other characters before. This gives me the perfect chance to write on just her friends and their issues.
The upcoming book is called, "Freckles' Short Stories, Volume 1." The first story in the book is about Boots' family. Many fans know that Boots' dad has been dating Purrsia. You also know that Purrsia has an adopted daughter named Potato, who is a hamster. The first story is about Purrsia and Mr. Cat's wedding. It goes through the experience and feelings of Boots and Potato who do not want them to get married. The first story is called, "A Cat Family Wedding" and is 14 pages long. This is just the first story in the book. I expect there to be at least 1 more.
I haven't had much time to work on his books. They take a great deal of time, work and research to do. I do plan on getting his second book out this year. Hopefully this spring! In the meantime, I will share some photos of Sherlock and his new buddy Salem tonight. Salem will probably be written in to the Cat family at a later date or perhaps as a new friend. Be sure to check out the photo albums to view the photos. I've added 5 photos in the Real Sherlock album and 1 in his friends album for you. This is on Sherlock's website.
Personal Sherlock update. Our Christmas tree spent a lot of it's time lop-sided and rolling along the wall because of all the wrestling the two kept doing. There are plenty of Sherlock stories to share with you so I will try doing that until the next Sherlock book is out.
For big fans, be sure to check out Freckles the Bunny Series, Book # 4: The True Meaning of Christmas and the upcoming book to see more of Sherlock and his family!

It's that time of year again. School is starting and so much more! Sorry I haven't blogged updates here in a bit but we've been rushing to get back into our house. Some things have been moving far faster then we planned. We are hoping for everything to slow down after next month and for us all to be settled in. In the meantime, here are some updates now & some to expect over the next month or so for all 3 websites: Now:
