Excellent publication, Leslie! I googled Ichabod Temperance to see if he was a real person, or possibly a cat, since the man in the Goodreads photo is looking away from the camera, unlike the cat. If the cat is Ichabod I hope he gets along with the Steampunk Rat!
There is a growing sense of doubt as to whom is the true author, me or Kitka.
Thank you for your interest, Mr. Shea!
Thank you and congratulations to Miss Orton!
Ah! So the man is called Kitka. But of course you're the true author, Ichabod! Only a cat would compare the sound of a ship's engines to 'the rumbling purr of an impossibly big cat'.
