Ask Max Monday: The Photoshoot Edition

The Man took this week off from passing gas, and he’s still off and the People are just kinda goofing off and not being very helpful, so it was a good week to not get any questions. While they’ve been going out an about, I’ve been napping and plotting (book stuff, not, like overthrow the world things, though maybe I’m lying about that part.)

This is how I look when I’m plotting…

Hm. I kinda look sleepy there. I might have been contemplating a nap more than I was plotting my work. But on that front, things are coming along swimmingly. The Blessings of Saint Wick has been out for a few weeks and the next book (which takes us back to The Wick Chronicles and out of Wick After Dark) is with the editor, and doods…the editor, who is also known as The Battleaxe because she’s so mean, says that it might be the best thing I’ve ever written. It’s a short book called The Whens of Wick and you get to find out how Wick started. It’ll be out next month.

You’re excited, right? Because I’m excited.

While we wait for the Battleaxe to be finished, we’re hard at work (well..kind not HARD this week, but we’ve been working a lot leading up to this week off) on the one that follows, it has a working title The Book of Hyrum. You get to meet Aubrey’s little brother, and doods, if you don’t fall in love with him you have no soul. The vomit draft on that will be done in a week or two…so it’s a few months from being out. But still.

You figured it out, didn’t you?

That this whole column this week was to show off my photos. The Woman got a new phone, which means a new camera, which means I get a frakton of pictures taken. I don’t mind too much, as long as she doesn’t use the flash.

I hope you guys are having a great week, too…I GOT STEAK so it’s been mighty fine for me.

But ask me some stuff. Otherwise I might have to post pictures of Buddah…

Got a question for me?

    If the mom has oxtail soup then I should get some too right? Because she is a food hoarder and not good at sharing anything. Also, since I have been sick and having radiation and stuff, I have asked the mom to get off her fat butt and hello me write a book. She has been saying that she is doing to help me write one for years. Her excuse is that it’s a children’s book I want to write which means pictures and she says she doesn’t how to get that part done. How can I get her off her fat butt to get this done?

    Max, you are a great looking cat and those are fine pictures!

  6. Oooh, planning a new book sounds great. I plan loads but never seem to get any where…. well, not yet but soon. I love how you spend those spare and rare moments between your endeavours checking the furniture. Tell me, do get paid, or is it a labour of love?
    Now as to a question…. The cost of living seems to go up rather than down. Do you have any money saving tips for the cost conscious house keeper… well she was conscious until she saw how much the cheese bill was MOL

    Dear Max,

    I am SOOOO much looking forward to reading your new books to our cats, that is if Lady Charlotte can keep from picking on Chaucer and if Linnet does not try to scratch everyone! Linnet is pushy and wants all the attention.

    I have a question for you. Do you or your humans know why some kitties cannot get high on catnip? Lady Charlotte loves the stuff but Chaucer and Linnet just ignore it and I have really really primo nip for all of them.

    I bought some silver leaf that Chaucer and Linnet like but it is really expensive and they don’t act near as loopy as Lady Charlotte does on nip. I even bought some seeds and planted them but they didn’t grow!

    Max, you are so handsome! You do know that, don’t you? I love all your photos.

    Best wishes,
