The Insectary, https://amzn.to/3AjKdCP is now available on Amazon! I matched every letter of the alphabet with an insect except for I. Not a single one, so I hope you’ll be amused by the replacement creature.
There are lots of puns and silly drawings, I can’t wait to hear how you like it.
What a good appetite!
In other news,
The Perrys have been busy this year. Here are their new titles:
THE LEFT HANDED TWIN, Thomas Perry
PURE, Jo Perry
and I think I’ve missed the rest of a series by Jo (all published by Fahrenheit Press):
DEAD IS BETTER, DEAD IS BEST, DEAD IS GOOD, & DEAD IS BEAUTIFUL
You can’t go wrong if you read these cunningly crafted novels!

"DEAD IS BETTER is not just beautifully written but weirdly moving and funnier than death should be and with a dog like Rosie, the afterlife is sweeter than I could have ever hoped for."
In the interest of full disclosure, I am biased by a 25 year friendship with Jo Perry. I knew this book would be great before I read it because every letter, poem, note that she's ever written has been written and edited so beautifully that I have saved all of them.
AND you bet it's great! As the daughter of a master comedy writer (Charles Lee), Jo's genetically acquired sly wit and grouchy characters enrich an ingenious plot so that by the end you have been persuaded to
1. Believe in her version of the afterlife
2. Enjoy erudite quotations even though panting for the next chapter
3. Form an immediate crack-like addiction that wants another
and another and another
