Your name is? #mfrwhooks

Today, another hook from my WIP titled Audra Fleeing Audra Finding, book 5 in the Alien Contact for Idiots series. Audra Verhailey, a runaway young mother, flees with her baby from Oregon to Kwadra Island. Kwadra is an alternate Earth’s Vancouver Island. The Kwadrans “hopped” their island to our Earth when the environment of their planet […]

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 offers a bargain

I, Effing Feline, am world famous. But in case you haven’t heard of me, I write a weekly blog post for my pet human, Ed Hoornaert, aka Mr Valentine. Being exceptionally busy with writing and naps, I employ a secretary (shown at left) who excels at hunt-and-peck. Today I offer you a sublime bargain: a […]

Effing Feline celebrates Canada Day

I, Effing Feline, wish you a happy Canada Day. What’s that you say? You didn’t know July 1 is Canada Day? And you know nothing about Canada? In truth, there’s only one thing you need to know. It’s cold, so there are radiators. We cats love radiators. Today, another snippet from Ed’s WIP, Secrets of Love […]

Off the Wall Inspiration

Once a month the Science Fiction Romance Brigade authors showcase snippets from new releases, works in progress, cover reveals or other fun things. Check out all of this month’s participants. My topic for this month is a wall.  Specifically, the office wall behind my desk, and how it inspires me. It’s pretty unusual for an Arizona author […]

A joke, a review, and a promotion

A review Alien Contact for Kid Sisters got a nice review on Scifi and Scary. I was impressed that Lilyn probed beneath the surface action to highlight character development. If your books fit her preferred genres, this is a good new site to seek a review. Fleeing rebels, the queen’s sister finds a hero to […]

Paranormal Love Wednesday

Hi! Mr Valentine (aka Edward Hoornaert) is joining a new blog hop this week — paranormal love Wednesday. Writers whose work is, shall we say, out of the ordinary, share up to four paragraphs, either published or unpublished. My most recent release, Alien Contact for Kid Sisters, stars a Native American who is literally out of this […]

Effing Feline, NaNoWriMo # 2 (11/22/15)

I, Effing Feline, am in trouble with my pet human, Edward Hoornaert, aka Mr Valentine. Although I wrote up this post last week, thus earning a week’s worth of petting, I forgot to add a link to it on the Weekend Writing Warriors page, and so only a few people read it. I feel bad about the mistake. Don’t […]

Effing Feline, NaNoWriMo # 1

I, Effing Feline, the Most Literary Cat in the Entire Universe (c), have watched in exaspurration as my pet human, Edward Hoornaert, aka Mr Valentine, wastes time writing a novel in a month. Do you have any idea how little he’s petted me?  The man is falling down on his job. In retaliation, I’m switching from a thoroughly […]
