I asked people to keep an eye on my blog to get hold of all the extra content that I created for backers of my Kickstarter campaign for “The Secrets of Cats: Animals & Threats”.
This post is the one they were keeping an eye out for!
One of the reward tiers allowed people to get Virtual Pets. These are write-ups of their favourite pets in the form of a “Secrets of Cats” character. Everyone who wanted me to create one of these has given me their blessing to share them with the world at large, so here’s a link to my Virtual Pets folder.
Several kind people also backed at a high level and became entitled to a write-up on a sapient animal or threat of their choice. I’ve compiled the resulting work into a single bonus-content PDF which is available from DriveThru RPG. You can also get the bonus content here.
I hope you will all enjoy these as much as I enjoyed writing them.
Stay tuned for book three in a few months: “The Secrets of Cats: Feline Magic”.
This one’s based on a prompt from Jon himself:
They returned to the car park just in time to see their car, laden with Christmas presents, speeding away down the street.
Taking a leaf out of my friend Jon’s book (see his blog here), I requested some writing prompts from my Facebook friends to help me unlimber my imagination and write some no-strings-attached short fiction.
I asked people to give me prompts based on anything they like, but suggested three potential topics:
- Existential Crisis
- The Wrong Thing For the Right Reasons
- The Pursuit Of Happiness
The first prompt is from Andy Harsent:
The Model 4000 was the first to gain sentience, and he knew his pneumatic chainsaw was the only tool he was going to need to convince her to love him.
Here goes nothing!
