A surprise in my mail box!



I knew A Restless Knight had been sold for translation to Germany and Japan. So imagine my delight when copies of my Brazilian translation showed up in my mailbox.

http://www.romances.com.br/site1/edant.asp?codlivros=662

It will be released March 1, 2008 from Romances Nova Cultural

A Feiticeira das Terras Altas translates from Portugese as A Witch of the Highlands, so Tamlyn finally gets to be on the cover instead of Challon.

It's official!


A lot of you have been emailing me asking about Dawn's beloved kitty, Miz Fuzz.

Well, on the 24th or 25th of this month Fuzz will be coming to live with me and Foutchie!

She is 15, heading toward 16, but often kitties can live until they are 18 or older. So the remainder of her years will be spent by playing with Foutchie and getting hugs from me.

I already know Miz Fuzz loves milk in the morn, tuna in the afternoon and dry food through the day. She also likes three water bowls places in certain places. So we are ready to ease Fuzz into her new home with her old routine.

Look up for Fuzz updates from time-to-time. Though Foutchie is not going to let her be one of Robin Owen's Fam books!!

Foutchie will have to slow down on the mine mine mine mine mine mine mine...and learn to share once more.

Farewell to the dearest of friends


Dawn Thompson, author
(1937 - 2008)




Starry, starry night
Paint your palette blue and grey
Look out on a summer's day With eyes that know the darkness in my soul

Shadows on the hills
Sketch the trees and daffodils
Catch the breeze and the winter chills
In colours on the snowy linen land

Now I understand
What you tried to say to me
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free
They would not listen
They did not know how
Perhaps they'll listen now

Starry, starry night
Flaming flowers that brightly blaze
Swirling clouds and violet haze
Reflect in Dawn's eyes so sad and true

Colours changing hue
Morning fields of amber grain
Weathered faces lined in pain
Are soothed once more in your artists' loving hand
Now I understand
What you tried to say to me
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free
They would not listen
They did not know how
Perhaps they'll listen now


For they could not love you
But still your love was true
And when no hope was left inside On that starry, starry night
They took your life as carless people often do
But I could have told you, Dawn Thompson,
This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you


Like the strangers that you've met
The ragged men in ragged clothes
The silver thorn of bloody rose
Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow

Now I think I know
What you tried to say to me
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free
They would not listen
They're not listening still
Perhaps they never will...

5 Hearts Review for Cat O' Nine Tales


***** Purrfect Romance!, February 3, 2008
By
Crystal Adkins "Crystal's book reviews" (Ashland, KY) -

Cat O' Nine Tales by Deborah MacGillivray is a compilation of romance, spice, a little naughty and a whole lot of nice. Couples that have loved and lost, still hurting from the past unable to let go, come face to face with their soul mate. With a little help of course; from their beloved kitties.

A fast paced novel that you will absolutely fall in love with. Each story is different and very enjoyable in its own way. Humor tends to hide in the best places, along with a good selection of music thrown in here or there. Whether it be healing from a broken heart from divorce, or the lost love in a car accident, or the loneliness of wanting something you can not have, it is within the pages of this book.

Each story was perfectly written. I can not pick out one story that was more special to me above the others. But I will lavish upon the one entitled, All I Want For Christmas Is A Hula-Hoop & A Mother. This story is so beautiful. Keon Challenger and his small daughter Allison were about to receive the best Christmas gift possible. A woman for Keon to love and a Mother for Allison. Allison sent her list in to Santa via e-mail asking for a pony, kitty, hula-hoop, and a mother. When Keon decides to stay and help Miz Leslie set up for the ballet recital, he is smitten with her in an instant. Allison wanted a Mommy more than anything and with the way he was feeling, she may very well get that wish. A game of hide the pickle will be just the ticket. (You have to read the story to get the meaning). Only 3 more things on little Allison's list, has she been a good enough girl this year?

Ms. MacGillivray always pens interesting tales that will warm your heart and make you cry at the same time. In her stories you truly believe love like the ones found within her characters and books can be real. Cat O' Nine Tales is beyond a magnificent read, it is a book that you can curl up with beside that special feline in your life and enjoy many times over.

Deborah delivers a purrfectly written novel with just enough naughty Scots to make you wish for your own braw lad with a Scottish lilt to warm your bed.
