Expect no pearls of wisdom #mrfwauthor

Once again, here’s the Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop. For this week, the writing prompt is: Managing My Writing Time Uh . . . shouldn’t you be asking people who know what they’re talking about?  You know, like efficiency experts? Or at least folks with willpower? (Actually, I have lots of willpower. I used the […]

Eddie the writer?

Why did Stephan Pastis have to use my name in today’s Pearls Before Swine comic strip? And then make fun of my books’ sales? Okay, I admit they pale before the sales of his books, but … sheesh! Click to see the punchline. And the punchline makes it even worse.  Pastis, you #@&#, you knew I used […]

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 […]

Smardy Kat pokes fun at science #6

Today I, Smardy Kat, have a guest blogger.  And you’ve all heard of him.  Yes, my fame if spreading so rapidly that I have been approached by none other than Albert Einstein! Here is his post: [What’s this?  Mr. Valentine (aka Ed Hoornaert) who hosts my blog, just told me Einstein is dead.  The spoilsport.] […]

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 […]

In one of the more unusual tributes to Mr. Nimoy, CBC news reports that in Canada, people have been marking up five-dollar banknotes, changing the portrait of former prime minister […]

Now that I’ve done a few of these eight sentence Sunday posts, I, Fart-Fueled Flying Feline (Effing Feline for short), am a star!  That’s what Mr. Valentine, aka Edward Hoornaert, says–and he has no reason to lie, right?
