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 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, […]

Love, War, and Purple Cows #MFRWauthor

For the final, last, and ultimate week of the Marketing for Romance Writers yearlong blog hop, the writing prompt is: New Years Resolutions I don’t do resolutions. Never have. But rather than end with such a teensy post, I’ll add that the wife and I have signed up for a three-times-a-week fitness class starting January 3. […]

Fire and ice #mfrwauthor

Once again, here’s the Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop. For  week 38, the writing prompt is: The Best Parts of Each Season As an adult, I’ve lived in two very different climates. I decided to compare the southern Arizona desert with British Columbia’s cold Canadian Rockies. That’s two sets of seasons for price of one. […]
