Tooting, but neither oboe nor London #mfrwauthor

Once again, here’s the Marketing for Romance Writers yearlong blog hop. For  week 46, the writing prompt is: Let Me Brag for a Minute This is a dangerous topic!

I, Effing Feline, haven’t managed to track down any of my sisters yet (click here for the background), but I’ve discovered some cats who surely must be related to me.

Effing Feline is a pig

I, Effing Feline, have the house to myself for the day. You see, Mr V’s off lollygagging at a writer’s conference. I’m left with one of those feeders that dispense as much cat food as I can eat. I consider it a challenge. Can I finish the entire container of food before he returns? Watch me […]

Effing Feline Googles himself

I, Effing Feline, figured out last week that I must have sisters. I’ve started searching for them. Imagine how awed they’ll be when they learn that I, the world’s most literary cat, am their brother! But I’m having trouble finding them. Can you believe that Google is utterly useless when it comes to searching for cats […]

Effing Feline has great litter

I, Effing Feline, just learned that I have sisters. Sisters! I feel like I’ve slept leapt onto the pages of one of my pet human’s books. Talk about a plot twist. I know this because Google says cats have more than one kitten in a litter — but clearly, no other males could stand comparison with […]

I, Effing Feline, told you last week about some of my favorite things. Now some unfaves: dogs cats that are cuter than me people who think other cats are cuter than me food that isn’t meat or fish dogs And now, a snippet from Ed’s sci fi romance, Escapee, featuring the beloved skoot. Captain Dukelsky wants Catt […]

Effing Feline’s favorite things

I, Effing Feline, was listening to Mrs V’s music, and it got me thinking. It was from The Sound of Music, and this is the line that got me thinking. Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens these are a few of my favorite things. The song’s unimportant, but what is important are my favorite […]

Effing Feline is hissed

I, Effing Feline, am hissed. Ed, my pet human, went to Toronto. He brought back candy for Mrs V and for his daughter and grandsons. But for me? Nothing. Nothing! Hiss to you, Mr V! But to show I’m a bigger cat than he is, I’ll present a snippet from his sci fi romance, Escapee. Despite his unfeeling […]
