Runaway moms revealed #mfrwhooks

In anticipation of the  September 1, 2018 release of Alien Contact for Runaway Moms, I have some something a bit different today: A new, longer blurb. A new cover. The Blurb The first paragraph has been around a while. The second is new. If you have any editing suggestions, let me have them. When her […]

Effing Feline worries about Cousin Lee #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am expecting a visitor soon — my cousin Lee.  While I admire Lee, for some reason he makes me feel small. Any cat except me would be scared of Lee, but not me! But I’m a big enough cat to admit I’m a wee bit anxious about the last time we met. You […]

Travel poster reveal – Alien Contact for Runaway Moms

Visions of the Future Cal Tech’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory has  been instrumental in discovering many exoplanets — that is, planets outside our solar system. To catch the popular imagination, they also produce travel posters for these worlds. (Click a thumbnail for a larger version.) Since readers visit a new world every time they read a […]

Sneak preview — Alien Contact for Runaway Moms

I just got the cover art for Alien Contact for Runaway Moms. Yay! Or maybe not, from your point of view, because I’m not ready to reveal the cover just yet. Runaway Moms is book five in my science fiction Alien Contact for Idiots series — but they’re all complete stories, so no wicked cliffhangers. […]

Effing Feline advocates nudism #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, never wear clothes. Why should I? Is not my form perfection? And if it’s good enough for a superior being like me, why is it not good enough for humans? I suspect the answer has something to do with humans’ regrettable lack of fur, which leaves them so pitiably vulnerable to weather […]

Matt, your virtue is safe with me #mfrwhooks

In the near future, a duplicate of Vancouver Island has appeared off Washington State, inhabited by Kwadrans — Native Americans from a scientifically advanced alternate Earth. Their Earth was polluted, climate-changed, and nearly uninhabitable. Matt Verhailey has engaged the help of Kwadran Duchess Opsie Beaverpaw in finding his niece, who has fled her abusive lover to Kwadra’s […]

Effing Feline wants to walk #8sunday #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am twitching my tail on the window sill, watching Twiggles the dog go outside for a walk. I don’t see why I never get to go outside, too. Forget the collar and leash, though. Undignified. We would need to go where I want to go, not down to the stupid park where […]

Effing Feline wants salmon pate a la flamboise – #8Sunday

I, Effing Feline, sat on Mrs Valentine’s lap today while she watched a cooking show. It made me wonder — why aren’t there any cooking shows for cats? I don’t mean shows telling cats how to cook. That’d be silly; no opposable thumbs, remember? No, I mean shows about delicacies FOR cats. Yum! (Today Ed […]
