    I must formally apologize to Selina. Yesterday was #MuseumCats Day aka practically a National Holiday for our favorite feline, and I missed it.  It was also a writing day, and as pissed as she may be now, it’s better for her in the long run if I get that next chapter out.In the meantime, cheer her up if you have any Museum Cats left over.

    Have to tell you, this is a mistake I make all the time.  Because I work in Baton Rouge and I’m constantly typing “Baton Rouge.”  My fingers automatically fit “r-o-u-g-e” in that order first.  And while I know it’s a habit, sometimes it slips past the eye filters looking for it because I’ve got a mild enough dyslexia that having all the right letters making a word that isn’t flagged by the computer system must be right. 

    So I guess that’s my preemptive excuse if I flub on the forums.

    S’cool, KLC.  Typos happen ALL the time.  (Consider my poor beta, poor man.  Patience of Job.)    My gripe was just with the your/you’re, they’re/their, to/too/two crowd who, it seems, simply don’t want to learn that these are different words that mean different things. 

    What you describe is more like when you need to pick up something on the way home, and if you’re not paying attention at that ONE MOMENT, you miss the turn and are heading home by the regular route.  We all do it, (even Batman, I’m told.)

    Would have thought if The Dark Knight Rises accomplished nothing else, it would have cleared up this, once and for all.  But alas… let’s review.

    Anonymous said: Will there be any stories focusing on Bane?

    That is an excellent question.  He’s appeared in two Cat-Tales: Comedy of Errors and The Gotham Rogues, but he wasn’t the principle antagonist.  I’ll have to see what I can dream up to bring him back, as his run in TGR was very popular.

    So it’s Comic Con time again?  Remember what Bebe Neuwirth said, guys:"It’s always nice to meet fans. Especially in a public place with lots of witnesses and clearly marked exits."

Cat-Tales is the real story, a Catwoman metafiction series by Chris Dee. Let’s say nearly everything you’ve ever read in a comic book is wrong. The identities are correct: Bruce Wayne is Batman, Selina Kyle is Catwoman. They live in Gotham City. There is a Wayne Manor, a Batcave and Batsignal, etc. But the rest is all exaggeration, distortion, and often the outright lies of a sensationalist tabloid called The Gotham Post, otherwise known as DC Comics. Cat-Tales tells the truth behind that fiction, revealing characters that are more complex and fully-human than anyone thought possible. Heart-stopping romance, side-splitting humor, and poignantly understated tragedy, it’s all here: the man inside the Bat, the woman within the Cat, the life between the panels, the truth behind the masks. * * * * * *

Chris Dee is an award-winning playwright, entertainment consultant, and metafiction author who brings real life experience to her storyverse, fusing it with unimagined truth and depth.

She is a woman who has squatted down next to a 500-lb Bengal tiger and petted its fur.  She has held an ocelot in her arms and allowed it to ‘groom’ her forearm.  She has spent the night in a cabin with two rambunctious caracals.  She studied art in Florence, Italy, worked in a museum and walked through its galleries after closing.  She knows the difference between Picasso and Pissarro, Manet and Monet.  She has been inside Cartier.  She has been inside a corporate board room.  She has been on a yacht and in a private plane. 

The life experience Chris Dee brings to these tales brings a depth to the characters unseen in any previous incarnations.

“Ten times the love and respect for the characters than the authors of the official comics… More emotion and charm than most novels on the bestseller list.”
