Anne Scott’s latest book, The Feline Cup, has just been released on Amazon. This whimisical,satirical collection of stories uses cats to highlight a few of the absurdities surrounding us and take a paw-swipe at some of our most hallowed icons. It’s intended as entertaining light reading and hits the mark purrfectly. I was lucky enough to interview Anne recently and this is what she said:
Q: How did you come up with the title of your book?
A: There are so many sporting codes playing for this cup or that cup world wide.
I just imaged the players as cats playing football for ‘ The Feline Cup.’
Q: Where did the idea come from for the book?
A: Watching people’s obsession with sporting codes involving grown men exhausting themselves chasing small balls with not a lot of results. Cats like to play with small balls, perhaps of paper or a tennis ball etc, so I imagined the players as cats
Q: What genre does your book come under?
Q: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
A: Take a humorous journey and see yourself though the eyes of Cat Vale’s cats; join them on Feline Park as they compete for The Feline Cup or follow the spoof of Chief Inspector Claws as he tries to solve the murder of Miss Bella, a sexy pussy with pleasing paws; or perhaps go with the thieves as they rob Rodents-to-Go.
Q: Will your book be self-published, published by an independent or represented by an agency?
A: The last two.
Q: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
A: 2/3 months.
Q: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
A: These are funny, whimsical tales for those of us who sometimes want a little light distraction.
Q: What other authors could you compare yourself with?
A: The Feline Cup is unique.
