I, Effing Feline, have been madly shredding paper this week.  It’s part of the free document shredding service I discussed last week. I have ten boxes of paper to shred, so business is looking good … sort of. I have to find some cats willing to pay me to claw the papers to shreds. That’s the […]

I, Effing Feline, believes that if at first you don’t succeed, try one more time and then quit. Last week’s manuscript evaluation service garnered no nibbles, so I’m changing the focus slightly. It’s now a document shredding service. It’ll be FREE! Which means, of course, that I shall get rich! New tale today. Sort of new; I […]

I, Effing Feline, am considering starting a manuscript evaluation service. I think I’d be good at it, because my claws are so very, very sharp. I’ll rate stories by dead mice: 3 dead mice is good, 1 or 2 dead mice means I couldn’t get my claws into it. In theory, it’s a 5-mouse scale, but […]

I, Effing Feline, am mollified. Last week I was hissing mad at my pet human, Ed Hoornaert, because he didn’t take me to his nephew’s wedding even though I got new clothes for the affair. But Mr V brought me a corsage from the wedding and let me bat it around until all the petals were spread over the […]

This one required little research My upcoming release, Newborn, coming in October, required relatively little research. It’s the third book in the Alien Contact for Idiots series, which […]

I, Effing Feline, got left behind! I was all set to go. I got me some brand new duds: a tie and a top hat, and even a veil for my latest lady friend, too, hoping to score. But did Mr V take me to his nephew’s wedding this weekend? No! So I used The Midas Rush […]

USS Indie 04

First Ever Images of the Wreck of the USS Independence Although I’m more likely to write about the stars, I’m also  interested in the undersea frontier, which can seem even more alien. I follow the real-time video feeds from Nautilus Live as the drone submarine explores the ocean deep. Today, the E/V Nautilus explored the USS Independence (CVL-22), […]

I, Effing Feline, want to talk about tails. Since few cats are smart enough to write a weekly column — okay, yes, you’re right; no other cats is that smart — you may have trouble communicating with your puss. Here’s a hint: listen to the tail. For a few weeks I’ll be selecting snippets from The Midas Rush by my pet human, Ed […]
