Au, Target and Guido meet a Valkyrie

I've been meeting other writers, and the cats decided they wanted to get in on the act.  So here's Target, Au and Guido holding their first joint author interview.

Target: Mummy Cat is making new friends.  One of them is Lilly Vanhorn who writes fantasy erotica books.  She's just got a new one out: Can you tell us a bit about the book, Lilly?
Meow!
Au: dis is Lady F who is de inspirashun behind Valkeeree Slumbering

Lilly: After the murder of her father, Kyra's heart is consumed by the need for revenge. The hunt is all that matters. But a chance crossing of paths with the alluring and mysterious Grim threatens to derail her focus and her quest.

TargetMummy Cat says I am her inspiration cat. Do you have an inspiration cat?

Lilly: Of course, who doesn't? My inspiration cat is Lady F (for Fluffy). She has a knack for showing up when my muse refuses to work and sleeping on my desk. It always reminds me not to take myself too seriously and to let the story happen.

TargetYour book, does it involve cuddling?

Lilly: There is a bit of cuddling.

Au: Yech.  Kuddling is soppy! 

TargetYou cuddle Mummy Cat.

Au: Shut up, fur brain!

Guido: Shut up you two!  Hey, Lilly! Valkyries hunt and fight, right? Can Kyra help me beat up the big evil cat from down the road?

Lilly:Absolutely, she could teach you a few handy tricks.

Au:  Bet she'll make you pay for it!

Guido: Lilly, will Kyra make me cuddle her afterwards?

Lilly:Well, she might.

Au: See!  Don't do it, Guido! So Lilly, if dis book is abowt slumbering, why is dere no cat hero?

Lilly: Because there isn't a lot of sleeping in this story. ;)

Au:  dere should be! we cats nap 22 hours a day.

Guido: If you didn't nap so much, Au, you could help me fight that big cat.

Au:  I bet dis Kyra learned to fight from a cat!

Lilly: No, but she would have had some wicked moves if so!

Au: well, dat's true. we cats are de best slumburers in the world and the best fighturs! de more i think abowt dis, de more dis Kyra sounds like a cat.  dis gives me an idea.  hey Lilly, does Kyra like rost chikkun?

Lilly: Of course!

Au:  if I tell other cats about dis book, will Kyra send me rost chikkun?

Lilly: Absolutely!

Au: all right, and if she feels de need to cuddle, she can cuddle de fur brains.

Guido: Oy! that's soooo rude!

Au: Shut up and I'll share de chikkun wif you.

Guido: OK. And I volunteer Target for any cuddling that comes up.

Au: OK cats, you can find Valkyrie Slumbering on: Amazon, Barnes&Noble and Smashwords You can find Lily at her blog, on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest Visit her and remind her to send me some chikkun.

TargetHey!  I'm not a fur brain!  And I want some of that chicken too!
