Hazel’s Book of the Month!

Standard

Happy Purrsday, Everypawdy!!

On my quest to become the feline Oprah, I started a Book Club!

Every month, I select an outstanding book to feature as part of the club. I am very purry to announce the first book: “The Writer’s Advantage: A Toolkit for Mastering Your Genre” by Laurie Scheer! You can read my Purrsgiving intermew with Laurie here.

Here are a few reasons why I love this book, and why I highly encourage you to add it to your library.

    1. Laurie gets it. She knows how the business works and how to explain it.
    2. The book has excellent economy of expression. Laurie cuts to the chase.
    3. The book is light and squishy, making for excellent napping material.

This book is just the best. Laurie’s wisdom and encouragement offers a set of wings to fly and excel in your career. She’s already there, she loves company, and she knows how to bring you up there with her. Can’t recommend her enough!!

Let me know what you think! And if you have any recommendations for books that you’d like to see included in the Club, send me a note at hazelfluffypants@gmail.com.

Happy Reading!

Caturday Intermew with Libor Miao!

Standard

Happy Caturday!!

Hope you enjoy this week’s intermew with my new Italian kitty friend, Libor Miao!

Kitty 2

Hazel: Hi Libor Miao! Welcome to the Caturday Intermew Series! Tell us a little about your little kitty self!

Libor Miao: Hi Hazel, first I want to thank you for the opportunity of being the cover-cat of this Caturday for your important and well-known Mewgazine.

My name is Libor Miao, called also Liborio by my daddy’s friends.

“G” is my daddy and he found me when I was a kitten of 3 months. Now I’m 4 years old (next 12th April) and we are still in love as the first day we met.

I’m Italian, from Rome(!), and some fans of mine know me also as NasoRosa (PinkNose). I’m able to talk with “G” and understand him. Amazing! We chat a lot!

Hazel: Cute! What advice do you have for bright young kittens aspiring to build a web presence?

Libor Miao: Well, I did my Facebook webpage when I was a kitten. My idea was to entertain my humans friends with jokes and funny images of mewself. We were just a few till a lovely cat, Pissu il Bello, found me on the internet and spread my PinkNose on his page, Pensiero Micioso. I had a lot of success through real viral web marketing. Advices fot kittens? Be yourself, purr and always, I repeat always, look straight in the camera <^-^>

Hazel: Eye contact is how you get treats! Who has been your biggest inspiration and why?

Libor Miao: I had no inspiration. I thought to be mad when I starting posting mewself in Facebook. Other cats started telling me “why do you post your photos on the web instead of sleeping all the day, staring pigeons out the window or asking for food? Why do you continue acting like as aCator instead of ignoring your daddy when you don’t need biscuits?” I went on. Now I know that many cats became famous and rich through the web. Mewonderful!

Hazel: What do you like to read or watch?

Libor Miao: I like watching TV on G’s legs. It is more comfortable. I prefer cartoons like “The Aristocats” or TV series like “The House of Cats”, so popular now. About reading, I’m in love with comics stripes “Cat vs Human” or “Simon’s Cat”. I would love to enter in one of their stories.

Hazel: “House of Cats!” Frank Underpaw or something molol!! How do you feel about the rise of feline power & how do you see that power shaping the world in the future?

Kitty 1

Libor Miao: Listen, actually, I don’t believe that dogs have had ever the power. Why do you think that the people who rules humans is called PolitiCats? Have you ever heard people saying “the dog is on the table?”. Well, I didn’t. “The CAT is on the table” and we rule the world since Egyptians discovered our Godness. Also some revolutions were made by us, Meow Tsetung for example. Once I also saw a cat on the Iron Throne, believe me!

Hazel: Who would you love to have dinner with? What would you eat and where?

Libor Miao: It would be funny to have a dinner with the CatWood stars like Grumpy Cat, Colonel Meow, Hamilton, Lil Bub, Shironekoshiro, Snoopy and of course you, Hazel. Imagine a dinner – interview with lot of tuna, shrimps and swordfish. I’m hungry now!

Hazel: Aww that sounds so fun! What are some mistakes you’ve made and what did they teach you?

Libor Miao: I did nothing, meeeeeew!

Hazel: Mol!! This has been fun, Libor Miao! To conclude, if you could say 1 thing to a new or existing follower, what would you like them to know?

Libor Miao: Cats are the best solution to life troubles. Pet me.

Hazel: So true! I could really go for some petting right now. Thanks for a pawtastic intermew, buddy!

And thank YOU readers for reading!

An endearing mew,

Hazel

“Hello World!” greeted Writer Cat Hazel Fluffypants

Standard

Hello! My name is Hazel M. Fluffypants, I am Half-Tortie, Half-Persian, and I have a whole lot of stories to share!

Even back in my Mama’s womb I would share stories with my brothers and sisters. Of course I would tell them in our own kitty language.

I know however that if you want to be a successful writer, your primary audience are the hoomans, so I started learning Hooman as we say among us kitties, or Human as the hoomans call it. That is, I am learning at least the Hooman dialect spoken at the farm I was born at.

Then I found my forever home two weeks ago! They give me free food, litterbox maintenance, and English lessons.

So here I am, 11 weeks old tomorrow, also developing my social media presence, which is helpful for sharing my stories faster.

I also understand the importance of education and friendship in a vibrant creative career. In addition to my stories I will post reviews of movies, TV shows, plays, books etc. as well as interviews with other writers and cats.

Look for the Project Slate to see my upcoming projects: crafting my place in the world, which can be challenging with kitten-sized paws, but stayed tuned because Hazel Fluffypants will soon bring to you:

A review of “Frosty the Snowman”

Interviews with Katie from GLOGIRLY – Tails of Two Funny Cats & Their Girl, and Luna the Fashion Kitty!

A preview of my first work: “Tails of a Guardian Kitty”

Yay I finished my first post!!

Thanks for letting me share my story with you.

Purrs,

Hazel
