5pm. At the mailbox.

Penelope Kitten is camped out on a beach chair waiting patiently for the postal person to deliver author copies of her book, “mostly me, by penelope.”

Cynthia (calling out the window):  Are they here yet, P?

penelope kitten (squeaking): any minute!

She takes a swig of her purple Slurpee and adjusts her sun visor.

penelope kitten: start my pr post without me, plz.

Cynthia:  Will do!

Cynthia starts typing.

Penelope Kitten’s penultimate paperback, “mostly me, by penelope”, has just arrived. It’s fresh off the presses and in time for purchase at CatCon (August 5 + 6) or on Amazon.

Meet Penelope Kitten!

So how does our anxious but amiable black kitten with a squeaky voice and a pudgy primordial pouch get through life?

Why … with a mix of pluckiness, persistence, pragmatism, and pizazz.

Join the adventures of Penelope Kitten, a Wiffle ball loving apartment cat as she navigates a world of crafty crows, killer coyotes, and vicious vacuums.

Whether she’s on her CB radio, or donning her superhero cape, or campaigning to be VP of the USA, Penelope Kitten is out to save the world (or maybe take it over).

One squeak at a time.

The stories in “mostly me, by penelope” are a compilation of P’s perpetually popular eponymous column here at Marcy Very Much.

With new illustrations by Marina Daineko.

Penelope enters with her box of books.

Cynthia: Yay! They’re here!

Penelope Kitten dips her paw in a vat of ink.

Available in-person at our CatCon table (TT05) in Pasadena on August 5 + 6 or available online at 


Both “mostly me, by penelope” and Marcy’s snarky advice book, “Dear Marcy … Ask Her Anything And Hope She Doesn’t Answer!” are at the friends and family price of $9.99 through August 31st.

Because we all need telling off advice from an opinionated cat.

Always humorous.

Sometimes malevolent.

    Congratulations, Penelope on penning your first book.
    Can’t wait to dive in. If your portrait on the cover is an indication of the contents it’s going to be fabulous!
