I, Effing Feline, am frustrated. Maybe you are, too. Maybe, like me, you’ve noticed the utter lack of romance books about cats. It’s disgusting. I’m not talking about stories with cats as pets or sidekicks. I’m talking about love stories of and for cat.
Many of your people are writers. Take note of this absurdly under-served audience, and start writing books for cats about cat love. Not cat houses, mind!
Today I continue to highlight a book releasing October 4, 2018: The Guardian Angel of Farflung Station. Duke, the hero of the piece, has been following a suspicious young woman through the corridors of city-sized Farflung Space Station, but when she dashes into a cul de sac, the heroine of the piece (for such she is!) vanishes. Here is their meet cute.
Switching modes on his com analyzer, he scanned each door. The only one not vacant was M128, assigned to P.R. Bahadur, a Life Support Technician new to Farflung. The analyzer screen drew a green stick person, bending at the waist in the middle of the room to stare at the room’s comp outlet, and underneath the outline, in flashing chartreuse, Unauthorized Entry Key Detected — worse crimes than he’d anticipated.
“Got you, you little troublemaker,” Duke muttered as he tapped in authorization and crime codes. The pocket door slid into the wall with a whoosh.
The girl breaking into Bahadur’s computer jerked upright with a classic caught-in-the-act expression: wide eyes, wrinkled forehead, parted lips. When Duke strode into the room, she darted past. He caught her waist in the crook of his elbow and with his other elbow, he tapped the jamb, closing the door.
“Principal Officer Dukelsky,” he began, “Station –“
Flailing her arms, she slapped him in the mouth.
“– Security,” he finished.
Effing Feline here again. Isn’t that a wonderfully romantic first meeting? Ed is a master of romance . . . not. You can see why I want you, rather than him, to write feline romances (the more graphic the better).

The Guardian Angel of Farflung Station
Three Strangers Facing an Enemy Invasion
The space pirates think they’ve conquered Farflung Space Station—but they didn’t count on Duke. The station’s Head of Security wants to prove to his army-officer parents he’s outgrown his youthful rebelliousness, and defeating a small army of pirates (almost) single-handedly is the perfect opportunity.
And they didn’t count on Lockey. This beautiful, kick-ass princess knows every weapon and martial arts system in the galaxy. She fell in love with Duke at first sight, and now winning his heart and destroying the pirates are her greatest desires.
And most importantly, the pirates didn’t count on Sandrina. After loving Duke from afar, she now yearns to fight for him. The attractive waif has discovered so many of Farflung’s secrets that she’s the most powerful person on the station, though nobody knows it yet.
They’re about to find out.
The Guardian Angel of Farflung Station is available now on Amazon for pre-order at a special introductory price of just 99c.
