In the presence of genius #mfrwhooks

In case you missed the announcement last week, I’ve changed the name of the holiday novella I’ve been snippeting from. The new name is Alien Contact for a Christmas Nutcracker, rather than Enhanced Nutcracker. Using the word Christmas in the title seems wise from a marketing POV. Holly Jansen is an American hired to conduct The […]

Effing Feline hates phones #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am so selfless I’m virtually a saint. You see, I selected a snippet that includes a telephone call, even though I hate those things. Imagine napping on a nice warm lap when the phone rings. Mr Valentine jerks, waking me up. Then he reaches for the phone, dumping me unceremoniously off his […]

He’s enhanced; what woman could resist? #mfrwhooks

I’ve decided to change the name of the holiday novella I’ve been snippeting from. The new name: Alien Contact for a Christmas Nutcracker Fitting the word Christmas into the title seems like a better idea, I hope, than Alien Contact for an Enhanced Nutcracker. Holly Jansen has been saved from financial disaster by an offer […]

Effing Feline needs a peticure #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, need to sharpen my claws. My manicure is in a frightful state, and I don’t mean Texas. Give me five minutes on a good scratching post, though, and I’ll be as good as new. Speaking of good as new, Alien Contact for an Enhanced Nutcracker is Ed’s new Christmas novella and the […]

Effing Feline has no baggage #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, has no baggage. Or luggage. Or stuff of any kind. If a cat wants to prowl from one place to another, do we pack dental floss and jammies? Do we buy a special box to carry our things in — and make up a word for the box? “Luggage.” Something you have to […]

Is thirty thousand dollars sufficient? #mfrwhooks

Alien Contact for an Enhanced Nutcracker, a holiday novella, is the sixth installment in my Alien Contact for Idiots series, though it can stand alone. The book opens five years from next November on a dark, rainy side street in Tacoma, Washington. Holly Jansen is trudges miserably with her cat, Thug, and when she gets […]

Effing Feline scorns nutcrackers #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, don’t get why the nutcracker is such a big deal. For one thing, after you crack the shell, there’s only a nut inside, not meat or fish, so why bother? For another, nutcrackers aren’t attractive, right? Not pretty! Alien Contact for an Enhanced Nutcracker is a Christmas novella and the 6th installment of […]
