Children of the Cat Goddess II

I hope the reader does not mind my going over my current work on the book whose root is called Children of the Cat Goddess, which will be an omnibus of sorts after I make some additions. For those who have not heard of it (perhaps most of it) Children of the Cat Goddess is about a Felidae species (lions and house cats alike are in the Felidae family) on an alien world. They have human intelligence and their own civilizations. However in my first book, only the Irlaki Cats are explored in any depth. However, without going into why and how, I hope to write a quartet to follow up the 100 pages or so I wrote in Children of the Cat Goddess and then include the first book, the sequel set, the scriptures of the “Peninsula Cats” (including the Irlaki Cats) and then a manifesto expressing the rights of Animals, The Book of Warren (a Cat who picks up a human name and moves to earth).

Right now I am writing the Peninsula Cat’s scriptures. I have already written parts of it, but here is the outline (more or less) of what it will look like. The authors, are Cats and fictive.

The Constitution of the Miriki

The Book of Warren

After I finish The Book of Warren, I will start work on the Quartet:

Travels of the Irlaki Cats

  1. Northwards to the Frozen Land;
  2. Eastward to and past the Mountain Republics;
  3. The Discovery of the Elephant Lords;
  4. Westwards Across the Seas.

Of course, while I am writing this bit by bit, I will continue work on Tales of the Land of the Firebird. And yes, I have written the easiest part of Children of the Cat Goddess: the Introduction.
