Touch Up Tuesday

The Mommy has been helping out this author guy as a beta reader for his last two books (and is about to start a third), by reading them as he's writing them and marking up minor typos and errors and touching them up, adding suggestions, and all that.

Well, as we cats know, the humans can't do anything without proper kitty supervision and assistance, so here I am, reading along with her. Umm, Mommy? You need to mark that word...


Sheesh, and I didn't even get a mention in the acknowledgment like she did....

Ziggy you prove how you can do it ALL!! The Author better put you in his next one!! What kind of stories does The Author write. Tommy says she claims to love reading--yet I never see her read anything...
