Monthly Meow (CCB Edition) August - September 2020
Another amazing few months for Curious Cat Books! Despite the Covid-19 restrictions, I'm thrilled to confirm all our authors are still achieving incredible things. Here's what we've been up to this month
New Editions Alanna Betambeau released a brand new edition of Brother Butterfly on August 10th 2020, introducing a few changes to the interior and a gorgeous new cover design. If you would like to check out the new version, you can grab your copy from Amazon HERE.
Peter Kay's Success! Blogger and traveller Alison Laycock interviewed memoir author Peter Kay on her Book Lovers blog (Aug 22nd 2020). You can check out the interview and review of Show Me the Way to Santiago right here. CCB would like to thank Alison for her support and for taking the time to feature one of our authors on her platform.

A huge thank you must also be extended to David Driver of Drystone Radio for hosting Peter on his September 8th show, the Writer's Bookshelf. David has previously featured Rachael and David Hardcastle. You can check out the podcast for Peter's interview by clicking here. Some further good news from Peter Kay!

Contract Renewals Despite Covid-19 standing in the way, I'm pleased to announce that adult horror writer Kier McGuinness has signed to CCB for another 12 months as we continue to work on his zombie novel, Generation Dead. Unforeseen delays this year meant we were unable to meet the initial production plan, but we're excited to see this title hit the shelves in 2021. Watch this space. Working On It Exciting times this month at CCB! Work has already begun on the fantastic children's title by Adam Cornish, Ghost Butterfly, which we're hoping to have available for you by Christmas 2020. Also, Alanna Betambeau's second title with CCB, The Singing Snail, will be out this year following the success of Brother Butterfly, which hit #2 in pre-orders on Amazon! Whilst we can't reveal much more at the moment, we'll keep you updated on social media. Be sure to follow @erachaelhardcastle on Facebook to stay in the loop! New Website Designs
