Effing Feline hates fixers

I, Effing Feline, cannot celebrate Father’s Day, as I’m not a father . . .  because against my will, I was “fixed.” Grr, hiss! I’m choosing another snippet from Ed’s WIP, a near-future SFR novel titled Audra Fleeing Audra Finding. Penniless and desperate, twenty-something Audra lets a Kwadran construction worker guide her up a wilderness mountain […]

An exquisite touch of distinction #mfrwhooks

Today, another hook from my WIP titled Audra Fleeing Audra Finding, book 5 in the Alien Contact for Idiots series. Kwadra’s queen has twisted the arm of a reluctant Duchess Opsie Beaverpaw to lead the search for Audra, a runaway young mother. Here Opsie talks with the runaway’s uncle, Matt Verhailey, a wealthy cyber security expert […]

Effing Feline peers into the wolf’s mouth

I, Effing Feline, think English is weird. Take the saying “Never look a gift horse in the mouth.” Why shouldn’t you? You can tell a lot by looking in a horse’s mouth, like its age and health. Right, Hywela? “Gift cats,” of course, are different. Don’t expect a gift from a cat. Instead, shower your cat […]

She didn’t even shudder #mfrwhooks

Today, I have some backstory about one of my heroines’ wound from my WIP titled Audra Fleeing Audra Finding, book 5 in the Alien Contact for Idiots series. Here’s the short-form blurb: She’s running from an abusive lover . . . but what is she running to? When her abusive lover threatens to take custody […]

Effing Feline teases dogs #8sunday

I, Effing Feline, hate the cat videos on Youtube. Instead of glorifying my glorious species, they portray us as creatures to laugh at. That is so misguided. If you silly humans really must laugh at some animal, laugh at dogs instead! Ed is working on rewrites of his near-future SFR tentatively titled Audra Fleeing Audra Finding. Audra […]

Not the wishful-thinking type #mfrwhooks

Today, I have for you another hook from my WIP titled Audra Fleeing Audra Finding, book 5 in the Alien Contact for Idiots series. To help you figure out what’s going on, here’s the short-form blurb: She’s running from an abusive lover . . . but what is she running to? When her abusive lover […]

Effing Feline celebrates Memorial Day #8Sunday

I, Effing Feline, know that tomorrow is Memorial Day, a patriot US holiday. In honor of said patriotism, I dug out my sun glasses honoring the US and the other nations in Mr V’s heritage. How many of these flags do you recognize? The first two are easy — along with Great Britain’s Union Jack, […]

The Tiniest Trace of Sarcasm #mfrwhooks

Today, I have for you another hook from my WIP titled Audra Fleeing Audra Finding, book 5 in the Alien Contact for Idiots series. To help you figure out what’s going on, here’s the short-form blurb: She’s running from an abusive lover . . . but what is she running to? When her abusive lover […]

Effing Feline pees on that #8sunday

I, Effing Feline, am livid with rage! I’ve discovered that some jerk has stolen MY money. Last week I showed you one of my greatest poems. You have to admit, it would’ve made a great book. But what did I learn? Some jerk has stolen my greatness and made a litter box full of money […]

Not going to have sex with you #mfrwhooks

Here’s another hook from my now-finished WIP, tentatively titled Audra Fleeing, Audra Finding. The title confused some people (including Lisabet, who’s opinion I cherish) because I haven’t shown you Audra yet. Instead I’ve been giving selections from the book’s other main thread. Therefore I’ve decided to confuse you by switching to Audra’s thread. This is […]
