I, Effing Feline, wish you a happy Canada Day. What’s that you say? You didn’t know July 1 is Canada Day? And you know nothing about Canada?
Today, another snippet from Ed’s WIP, Secrets of Love and War. Last week, the captured human bomber pilot awoke in hospital and mistook alien doctors for monsters.
Cynthia O’Connor lives on the alien world. She is visiting her clan sister in hospital (yes, Kaushelle survived) and she hears human screams. When she investigates, she meets doctors who had fled the pilot’s violence.
“We are charged with healing the pilot who bombed Peace to All Species Park,” the doctor with blue hair said, “but now –“
“He survived?” Cynthia said. “I hoped he was dead.”
“Humans excel in designing armor to protect themselves.” Sky Blue dipped his upper body as though complimenting her personally. “My team was removing him from the regenerator to bathe the chemicals off his skin when he suddenly awoke. He fights us, calls us monsters — us! — but perhaps one of his own species . . . ?”
When she understood the unspoken question, Cynthia’s skin crawled as though attacked by a swarm of shit-slitherers. But she’d do anything to make amends for the pain and damage her species had caused.
“Of course I’ll help you deal with him,” she said, proud of her self-control — until another vile curse bellowed from the room and made her shiver in revulsion.
I repeat: radiators.

Alien Contact for Kid Sisters
Fleeing murderous rebels, the queen’s sister finds a hero to save her — or is he kidnapping her, instead?
Marianne Harmon dreams of being a warrior rather than the pampered kid sister of the queen, but when rebels strike, she’s thrust into a more dangerous adventure than she’d bargained for. Can she trust the man in a Royal Guardian’s uniform who’s trying to save her . . . or seduce her . . . or maybe even kidnap her?
If you like romantic adventures like Romancing the Stone, you’ll love Alien Contact for Kid Sisters.
