Bear break

I've got an unusually huge amount of writing to do at the moment, so I'm going to take a break from doing @MYSADCAT tweets for the time being. The Bear also tells me that he'd like time to work on his latest volume of goth poetry under conditions appropriate to an artist of his seriousness (i.e. without me poking a camera into his face). Thanks for all your lovely messages over the last couple of years and we hope to see you again before long.



P.S. To those who've asked if there is a new book about The Bear on the horizon: there will indeed be a follow-up to The Good, The Bad & The Furry, which will be published by Little Brown in October this year. Also, The Good, The Bad & The Furry will finally be published in America in April.

Going to miss you so much, but it is for a good reason. Hope inspiration flows easily.

I will miss you, The Bear, Ralph, Shipley, and the whole gang, every day. Much success to you.

All the best to you with the next in the series, and to the Bear with his book of goth poetry – both of which I look forward to reading!

Anna H said...

Please write quickly, Tom & The Bear, because a lot of us will miss you both.

Come "home" soon! x

Aw, Tom, now I'm more sad than The Bear :(

I suppose I'll just have to grin and "Bear" it! See you both on the other side xx

Sigh, I just discovered you and The Bear a few months ago and you've quickly become one of my favorite tweeters. You will all be sorely missed. Hope to see you back soon. (And very glad you'll be published here soon, too!)

Hope the writing goes well Tom, and that the mogs help out rather than prove to be a time eating distraction.Tell them there is no time for cleaning up mice spleens or responding to persistent howls for food.
I will look forward to hearing from you all when things are not so busy.
So pleased to hear that there is another book in the pipeline after the GtheBandtheF.
And thanks for the calendar! It surprises people.

We'll miss you and The Bear, but at least I have the calendar on my wall beside me :)

I will miss sad cat big time, but sounds like he's going in the right direction to meet some of those new years resolutions he set himself! I'll look out for the published text of his goth poetry and will be attending the book signing

Claudia Templeton said...

We will miss the Bear. But fortunately we have his calendar to look at every day.

Cjewers said...

Hmm ... Some classic sad cat pictures continue to appear on FB ... Is this legit, or someone else reposting. I could not enjoy them if they were not legit. Regards to theBear, and happy writing. Trying to finish a mss myself!
