Capture this Escapee now!

Escapee hits the e-bookstores, and a giveaway!

Space catEffing Feline here. My pet human, Edward Hoornaert, has a science fiction romance coming out today, and he wants me to tell you about it. And about a raffle for an Amazon gift certificate or free books.

Yeah, yeah: I hear you saying snidely that I can’t tell you anything because I’m just a cat. Believe it or not, I know I’m a cat. I’m as proud as purr of it, too. But I also have a weekly column on this blog. So there! I’m a very literary cat.

Here’s my idea of what Ed (aka Mr Valentine) would like me to tell you:

Tuesday, April 19, 2016, is the day the world has been waiting for. Mark the date on your calendars and be sure to tell your grandchildren that you were there. The greatest science fiction book of this generation, Escapee, has finally been released by MuseItUp Publishing of Montreal!

Blah, blah, blah.

Here’s what I really think.

Just what the world needs, another book. Yawn.

You can eat books. You can’t curl up sleep on them, unless you’re a very tiny kitten. You can’t pretend they’re a mouse and bat them around the room. So what the furball use is a book — even a book  that delivers the thrills and romance of a classic movie, The African Queen?

You can’t eat a movie, either. Yawn.

In all honesty, there’s only one good reason to buy Escapee … so Mr V can afford to keep me in catnip. And that’s a furbally good reason — so buy the book, won’tcha? I’ll purr for you if you do!

Escapee — The African Queen in Outer Space

Catt Sayer just wants to survive.  The working-class fugitive delivers military supplies on her decrepit airship, but her hard-won livelihood vanishes when invaders overrun her harsh moon. And now an idealistic, upper-class officer wants her to risk her life on a hopeless voyage to attack enemy headquarters – manned by 10,000 soldiers.

Edward Hoornaert’s romantic space opera, Escapee, continues the saga of the Dukelsky family (begun in The Guardian Angel of Farflung Station).  If you like The African Queen and the thrill of underdogs finding love while battling a hostile environment, you’ll love Escapee.
