Z is for...

Zips

Original image


Ella has a problem with zips
And buttons, and sandals and slips.
She'd like to undo
More than just one or two
But usually ends up having trips!

Y is for...

Yay, Yay, Release Day!



When hoping to publish your book
You need something to use as a 'hook'
I tried this and that
But went with a cat
To find out some more, take a look...


Life isn’t a fairy tale… except when it is.

There’s nothing wrong with Ella Gibson’s life— it just isn’t very exciting, despite being surrounded by lingerie. Working for Cardiff’s top modelling agency should have been glamorous, but most of the time Ella is running around with memos and cups of coffee. It’s a far cry from living the dream, but skirting the edge of her fantasy life is enough.

Then comes the day when her cat starts to talk, claiming to be Ella’s fairy godmother. As if that weren’t crazy enough, the pesky puss becomes a fashion advisor and behavioral expert, too. Add an evil ex-stepmother, a hunk called Charming, plus a looming party-cum-ball, and you have all the elements of a classical fairy tale. There’s even a couple of ugly sisters—the fact that they are two gorgeous gay men being neither here nor there.

Ella’s not your typical fairy-tale princess though, and it will take more than a discarded glass slipper to get her man. It’s quite possible she may have to curb her enthusiasm for cursing a wee bit, not to mention her love of vodka. And can Muse, her surprisingly straight-laced feline friend, overcome her prudishness long enough for Ella to sneak a kiss or three with her intended beau?

Release day is here!!! Can't believe my book baby is finally available, and that my prudish pussy cat is now unleashed, ready to amuse (and possibly scare) the world at large! For those of you who take a chance on this, first and foremost, you have my heartfelt thanks!! Second - I hope you find the story as funny and snort-worthy as I did when I wrote it! Definitely the best time I've ever had writing something, and hopefully the reading experience will be as laugh-inducing as the writing of it was!

*hugs to all*

X is for...

Xerography 

Original image



To make copies is Ella's main duty
A job that's in no way a beauty.
The office PCs
Often break down with ease,
And Ella is rushed off her booty!

W is for...

Window

Original image


When looking through panes of glass
You might think that the scene is crass
But do not despair -
Sight may be impaired!
And good things can still come to pass!

V is for...

Voluptuous

Original image



Ella's proud of her ample chest
And doesn't mind the odd joke or jest
But do it with charm,
Don't use slimy smarm!
Be witty, not smutty, that's best!

U is for...

Uh-oh

Original image



When Ella keeps having mishaps
She tends to yell out 'Oh crap!'
Muse replies: "Oh, dear no -
You should say 'uh-oh'!"
But Ella will have none of that!

Ugly sisters aren't meant to be male
But this is no ordinary tale
To add some more quirks
I dressed them in skirts
With Scottish kilts,you can never fail!

And attempt to avoid nasty falls!

R is for...

Rules



Original image

A fairy godmother has some tools,
To stop clients acting like fools.
She warns to take care,
Not to drink or to swear
And to follow her godmotherly rules.

Quirky twists are an absolute must
But don't be alarmed or nonplussed
My fairy godmother
Is unlike no other
And the sisters are men you can trust!

P is for...

Profanity

Fairy G doesn't like to swear
So risk her wrath if you dare!
If you blurt out "CRAP!"
When reading a map,
She'll respond with a deadly glare!

O is for...

Ogling

Original image


The man called Derek was a pain
He could never learn to refrain.
He'd eye Ella's chest
And claim it was 'best'.
But Ella would respond with disdain.

N is for...

Naughty

Original image


When molding your plot, it's like putty.
Just take care not to make your girl slutty.
There are those who get haughty
When reading stuff naughty
But by adding some laughs, it's not smutty!

M is for...

Maltesers

Original image


When offered comfort by two geezers
Ella is given maltesers
Those chocolatey balls,
They kept her enthralled
And did marvellous things to please her!

L is for...

Lurking

Original image



If your plot needs a little reworking,
Chase your foe, and plan on some lurking.
Pack some food  (and the cat!)
But no more than that!
And next time, leave out the gherkins!

Wearing high heels can be scary
Of staircases Ella is wary
"One little slip,
Becomes a big trip!"
Warns Ella's godmother (fairy).

Fill the spot like a juicy tongue-twister!

I is for...

Insanity

Ladies do NOT swear!



She's left sanity far and behind -
She's sure that she's losing her mind.
Her cat gives advice
 - and not about mice!
Seems Muse is one of a kind!

H is for...

Heroine

Original image


Not typically thought of as stunning
As a model she's out of the running
But when friends need her aid
She'll be there, come what may
You just need to coerce with some cunning.

G is for...

Giggles

Original image

When things that happen seem drastic
Make your lips become like elastic
Stretch them wide, and wriggle
They frame a good giggle
And things will end up fantastic!

F is for...

Fire

Artwork by my lovely friend, Ana


When your puss is a staight-laced cat
You plans can sometimes go SPLAT!!
When Puss starts a fire
Things can end up dire
And your smooching... that's the end of THAT!

E is for...

Ella

She's often found tripping on air
And finding herself suddenly bare
With a slip and a yelp
She often needs help
Good job her Prince Charming's there!

D is for...

Dancing


Original image



When having a night on the town
It's best to smile, not to frown
A snazzy outfit
Will do just the trick
Just steer clear of overlong gowns.

Cats

When your feline decides to start talking,
You may find yourself suddenly gawking
You might think you're mad
But please don't be sad
Your puss entertains when she's squawking!

B is for...

Balls


Original image


Sometimes you have to embrace
The fact that you must show your face
And if you should fall
At the party-cum-ball
You'll stand out, even if you lack grace.

A is for...

Alcohol


Original Image



Ella likes a vodka or three
When feeling the need for whimsy
She'll even drink wine,
Some of the time,
Just enough to get slightly tipsy.
