I, Effing Feline, wonder:
- Why a book cover is so blinkin’ important to your writers.
- Where the sky goes to when it goes night night.
- And why humans aren’t smart enough to sleep fifteen hours a day.
- And how dogs can be so stupid as to fawn all over mere humans.
- And lastly — and most importantly — if you’ve petted your cat today.
Continuing with a snippet from Ed’s upcoming SFR (science fiction romance to you mystery writers), Pandora Uncaged. Last week, Pandora carries medicine as she entered the room where mysterious mobeave was kept. We continue on from there.
But she chopped her self-congratulations short. The finger fish floated uneaten in the pond, which was unheard of . . . and Moby’s head was still submerged.
“Oh, no. No no, no no no.” She pounded on the cage. “Are you alive? Moby, wake up!”
It didn’t move a muscle.
Her heart galloped; she hyperventilated; but to her surprise, the unpleasant sensations didn’t keep her from acting. She slapped her hand on the palm plate.
(And a few more for good luck. Don’t worry, they’re short.)
The door didn’t open. It didn’t open!
She tore off her gloves and tried again.
She’d never been in the mobeave’s cage — her sister’s boyfriend had nearly lost a leg to the beast — but now she splashed across the thigh-deep pool and lifted its head out of the water. “Please don’t die, please. Ember’ll think I’m still a screwup and she’ll never trust me again and –”
The beast opened its beady eyes.
Then its mouth.
Effing Feline here again. Ed insists I tell you about the new cover and release date for Pandora Uncaged. I don’t know why any of you would care, but a cat’s gotta do what a cat’s gotta do.
- The cover is below. Duh.
- The release date is April 5, 2021
Book Two in the Passion Island Trilogy — A friends-to-lovers future romance
Available April 5 at all major e-book vendors
Pandora Dayle is her family’s disgraced black sheep. Ten years after running away, she’s rebuilt her self-respect at an isolated facility for saving animals native to the colony’s planet. Her redemption feels as fragile as a dream, but she’ll be okay if nothing traumatic happens.
But when the best friend from her innocent youth arrives, her insecurities mushroom.
Aidan used to be Pandora’s best friend. Since his teen years, he’s held heroic jobs—police officer and now Search and Rescue leader. He adored innocent young Pandora so much he compares every woman to her idealized memory, and finds them wanting.
But when he rediscovers the real thing, she’s not at all what he expected.
Booker, a naïve Apprentice Cupid for a secret organization, receives his second assignment: get Pandora and Aidan to mate. They’d been close friends, so his strategy is simple: He flies Aidan to her island and tells him to impregnate Pandora.
What could possibly go wrong?
