A Scarred Duchess #MFRWAuthor #MFRWhooks

Sorry for missing last week! Two weeks ago, shared a passage from book two of my Camp NaNoWriMo WIP. The MS is proceeding very well, and though I doubt I’ll finish by the 30th, I should come pretty close. Woohoo! For a variety of non-authorial reason, I’ve been in a major slump the last year […]

Effing Feline wishes for . . . ?

I, Effing Feline, think that the saying “Be careful what you wish for” applies only to humans, not cats. For example, Mrs Valentine (Ed’s wife) wished for cool weather during her recent trip from Arizona to Toronto to visit the two sons who live there. What she got was freezing rain, snow, and frigid temperatures. Be […]

Effing Feline prefers *fresh* salmon

I, Effing Feline, talked last week about whether my potent feline allergens made any of my fans itch over the Internet. Today I’d like to talk about something I’m allergic to. Cat food. Oh, it doesn’t make my body itch or anything like that. But it does make my pride itch. Sneeze, even. I am […]

Duplicates, duplicates #mfrwhooks

I’ve come up with a working title for the sci fi romance WIP I shared last week: The Man She Trusted. I hope to finish a first draft during Camp NaNoWriMo this month. Because I’m sharing bits and pieces both here and elsewhere, I’m skipping to chapter two. To avoid duplication, you know. Which is ironic, […]

Effing Feline sends you allergens #8Sunday

I, Effing Feline, was delighted last week when people complained about me ending my selections from Ed’s sci fi romance, Rescuing Prince Charming, on a cliffhanger. You see, I’m not one of those spineless lap cats who seek only to please. No way! The laps I prefer belong to: People who hate cats. People who […]

Untitled Book Five #mfrwhooks

In recent posts to Book Hooks, I said I had not one but two WIPs underway. I also said that for me, writing two projects is insanely unwise. Well, one of the two  has withered away, and it’s the one I’ve been sharing. So I’m switching to the other WIP, which currently has no title, […]

Effing Feline lusts after the white cat

I, Effing Feline, endure a plethora of problematic, possibly painful possibilities. Case in point: Ed (Mr V, my pet human) plays the oboe. All you need to know about the oboe is that it’s LOUD. But lately he’s been practicing some music I love. Next week, his group will be in the pit for a […]

Vintage Effing Feline – He’s hissed

Originally published March 21, 2015 Quick quiz. Who the heck is Effing Feline? Blogger on Ed Hoornaert’s blog A Narcissistic nuisance The world’s most literary cat The wildly popular legend in his own mind All of the above Effing is a larger than life character (especially around the belly). In case you missed him, Mondays […]

Effing Feline hates palm sundays #8sunday

I, Effing Feline, heard that today is Palm Sunday. Since Mr V has a palm tree out front, and because I am a Cat of Great Curiosity, I decided to sample this holy treat. I got a palm frond . . . . . . and some ice cream . . . . . . […]

Fisherman’s Favorite Pudding #mfrwhooks

As I’ve said here before, I currently have not one but two WIPs undersay. Sigh. Given the way I work, that’s terribly unwise — but while I usually hold sway over my Muse, sometimes she throws me curve balls and strikes out my commonsense. I’m continuing with the opening of my sci-fi romance/adventure tentatively titled […]
