A book in a cloud?
Today’s the day! Pack Leader says my ebook is out!
I sound excited but actually, I can’t find it. I sniffed all around the Den for this ebook thing, which is supposed to have my picture on it–no luck. Maybe my ebook is outside? I went to the door and whined, because it opens inward and I haven’t mastered how to do that by myself…yet.

“Silly,” said Pack Leader from her chair at the computer. “Your ebook is here! See? Hot Dogs. With your picture on it.” She pointed to the screen. “And it’s out there.” She waved vaguely up and out the window. “In the cloud.”
I looked outside. Sure enough, clouds. Lots of them. Wet ones, to judge from the damp street and the happy plant faces out there. I worried: wouldn’t my book get wet?
“People can buy your book now,” Pack Leader said. “It will sail into their homes from the cloud, right into their computers. Or maybe their phones.”
That, I thought, is magical thinking. I’d better keep an eye on her.
“We can tell all your friends that they can go to Kindle and buy your book for just a handful of dog treats.” She was beaming a toothy smile at me.
I will tell my friends no such thing. I hopped onto the bed in the library, the better to stare her down. My friends will think I’m a wingnut. Let’s let my clever publisher Katje take that risk. I’ll just stick to peemail.
<“So we shall,” said Pack Leader. “Trust in Katje, that is, seeing that neither you nor I have passed Social Media 101 yet. Let’s hope people sign up for our newsletter, too. Okay with you if we give those folks a free ebook?”
How should I know? What do we do–send them a wisp of cloud? I gave her a baleful look.What do we do--send them a wisp of cloud? Click To Tweet
“Your real books should be here in a few days. The trade paperbacks.” She hugged me. “I’m so proud of you, author wolf!”
I’m feeling twitchy. Will my real books arrive in time for Pack Leader’s birthday? It is almost upon us and I am planning a good howl party for her and my real book. It’s too bad that the moon won’t be anywhere near full by then, but our friends will come anyway.
Bella’s excited, since I let it slip that she has a cameo in the book. She dribbled that fact out on peemail and now there’s a request from the two chihuahuas across the street to be in the next book.
Maybe Katje will come for the howl, too, dragging the cloud with my book in it behind her car.
I’ll never understand humans….
