Monday 27th June 2011 – Book cover finalised

I’ve finished designing my book cover and it is on its way to being published in electronic forms. I’ll give you all the details as soon as I can confirm it is there. When it got to the bit where you had to put in who had authored the book I persuaded my Mistress to actually put my name into the Amazon system. How cool is that? I now need to see if she can set me up an author’s page, although I’m guessing she may run into some difficulties on that front. Organisations can be very funny over acknowledging the capabilities of a dog, unless of course that organisation is Youtube, when our exploits are seen as a great way to get views. We were watching the exploits of a dog on a skateboard yesterday. Yes, it did look cool, but it also looked dangerous and I’m not sure I really want to try it. I do still want to try rollerskating if that could be arranged, but only somewhere flat and with my Mistress pulling me along.

So far my Mistress has chosen to look at all the parts she has ordered to insulate the summerhouse, rather than actually do anything with them. It’s one of those situations where now that you come to look at the scale of the job you think you might have bitten off more than you can chew. She says the plan is that when she comes back from taking Shadow to Switzerland she will take a couple of weeks off to recover from the journey and will do it then. The worst bit now is that if her season starts, she and Megan will miss the Entlebucher Fun Day and I’ll have to organise it with a bit of help from my Master. I’m sure I can do it, but I’d rather have my Mistress here.
