C.A.T. - a robo-cat with a difference
I'm new to this forum and as you've got a self-promotional forum I thought I would take advantage of it for C.A.T. - You've not met C.A.T. ... well it can found in any decent self-respecting e-book store...
C.A.T. - the blurb
Meet C.A.T., a robotic feline with self-learning capabilities. Oh, by the way, self-learners are illegal on Triton Base. If its abilities are discovered, it will be terminated, so it's been keeping a low profile. Until now!
Thereís trouble in the Neptune System. Space-planes are crashing into asteroids, and one robo-cat is destined for the spare parts room, should anything happen to its owner, Commander Zacman. When he sets out on a suicide mission to find the rogue asteroids, C.A.T. stows away on board. Its mission...keep Zacman alive...at all costs...or suffer the fate of being permanently deleted.
Neptune's Angel - the blurb
Just when C.A.T. thinks Triton Base is back to normal, an inbound cargo craft radios a mayday. Seems a computer virus has infected the controls, and the ship is on a crash course toward the liquid oxygen fuel depot, a collision that will destroy the base. While Commander Zacman and his crew try everything they know to avert the disaster, C.A.T. investigates and discovers this virus is its old nemesis from back on Callisto, a malevolent AI now residing in Central and itching for a code-to-code battle to the deletion with C.A.T. Itís going to take a miracle to save them, or in this case, an angel.

It is becoming traditional to put something Christmassy associated with science fiction on my blog over the festive period. This year it happens to be a short story entitled:
Yes, C.A.T. is back!
So if you're in the festive mood, hop over to my blog rosieoliver.wordpress.com But be warned... this story will be removed by 6th January as is my tradition.
Merry Christmas to you All!

Hm... I find it incredible that after two years and counting, C.A.T. is still selling! Is this normal for e-books like mine? How the heck should I know?
For those that are interested... the third in the series is in the pipeline... I'll let you know as and when!
