Dougal's Very Own Book Trailer

We here at Clan HQ are always being watched over by a cat or five, but none of our furkids have their own Book Trailer.

Dougal – our very first Author Cat – does, however, star in a Book Trailer because, thanks to his biographer the lovely and very-wizardly David Greagg,

Dougal has two books: Dougal's Diary & When We Were Kittens

A Cat, his Man, and the Launch of When We Were Kittens

The sequel to Dougal's Diary - which recounted the first year in the life of the brave and charming black-and-white cat.

When We Were Kittens continues the adventures of Dougal, his mouthy sister Shadow, the enigmatic and imperious Belladonna, and of course their humans, Man and Woman.

The launch is this Saturday - April 21 - at 11 am, in Yarraville at the Sun Bookshop.

It's a free event - but be purrfectly polite and give them a call (on 9689 0661) to let them know you're coming.

When We Were Kittens

We here at Clan Destine Press are purrfectly delighted to announce that our first book for 2012 has been whiskered off to the printer.

When We Were Kittens by David Greagg

will be available for pre-order from March 28.

The paperback of the much-anticipated sequel to Dougal's Diary will be officially launched on April 21 and will then be in all the best book shops.
