Harvest is a salient worldwide message. Our society is infested with every compilation of electronic gadgetry with delivery made into the silent, antisocial, interpersonal world of cyberspace and hence the child’s brain. Who would have thought the places meant to be the safest in our society are the most duplicitous: our homes and schools. What … who lurks behind those electronic screens that daub every home, every schoolroom, capturing your child’s mind in a prison of his own aspirations, corrupting the young brain to his nefarious agenda? … Harvest … the grim reaper of our children’s minds. How he did this and why is what this story is all about.

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.

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?
A: Fiction/Satire

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.

A: These are funny, whimsical tales for those of us who sometimes want a little light distraction.

Interview with Anne Scott, author of Harvest

Anne Scott is the author of Harvest, a recently released science fiction novella that is extremely pertinent to our time. Michael Harris produces cartoon movies aimed at children, but when his screenplays are hijacked and corrupted by some unknown force, he is at first angry and then concerned. Together with Jenny, his next-door neighbour, his son Billy, Jenny’s son Jimmy and the Harris family dog, Fred, they set out to discover what is causing this phenomenon and why. In trying to uncover the truth, the boys and Fred play a pivotal role. Harvest will appeal to both adults and children and is available for free download from Kindle between 7 and 11 February.
Below is an interview with Anne Scott:

Q: How did you come up with the title of your book?
A: Like the Pied Piper of Hamelin, Harvest is a collector not of children but their manipulated minds.
Q: Where did the idea for the book come from?
A: Through listening to a speech by Dr Susan Greenhill the British neuroscientist and subsequently reading her book ‘Identity in the Twenty-First Century’.
Q: What genre does your book come under?
A: Science Fiction/General Fiction.
Q: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
A: ‘Harvest’ is not a fairy tale but a reality play. It shows the dynamic changes to the cellular structure of children’s brains in the twenty-first century brought about by an obsession with electronic devices in the silent tasteless world of cyberspace.
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: 3 – 4 months.
Q: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
A: Where will the future take us and how free do we think we are from the intrusions of the twenty-first century.
Q: What other authors could you compare your book with.
A: George Orwell and John Wyndham. They both show what happens when outside influences encroach on our freedoms to force resolutions.
