Effing Feline chortles #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, have found the perfect painting of Twiggles the Dog, my sometimes friend and always nemesis. For comparison purposes, at right is a photo of the dumb dog admiring one of the grandchildren. She looks sweet, right? Well, the camera lies! Below is the truth — a cat’s eye view of Twiggles the […]

Effing Feline gets ripped off #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, have been ripped off. Taken advantage of! Lied to! This is 2019 — a brand new year, or so they say. Yet my broken dew claw is still broken, just like last year. What the hissy growl is up with that?!? I’m supposed to be brand new and as fit as a […]

Effing Feline sits on Buddha’s lap #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, love the extra laps that Christmas brings. Ed’s children have come home for Christmas from Toronto (2 of them) and Amsterdam, traveling over 10,000 miles one way just to let me sit on their laps. I heartily approved — and I’m a connoisseur of the very finest of human laps! Today is […]

Effing Feline keeps it simple

I, Effing Feline, am going to keep this holiday season simple — and the Simple Truth is that Christmas is for cats. Here’s proof: In Mr. Valentine’s recently released sci fi romance novel, Escapee, enemies have invaded the mining moon where Catt Sayer, a civilian pilot, makes her living flying supplies on a decrepit airship. A […]

Effing Feline announces a sale #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am getting ready for Christmas. The most important preparation is convincing the world of the crucial role cats have played this holiday season. After all, felines invented good cheer by their use of catnip. Here is my Exhibit A: In Mr. Valentine’s recently released sci fi romance novel, Escapee, enemies have invaded the […]

Effing Feline makes an offer you can’t refuse #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am going to present evidence of cat’s undeniable superiority in order to encourage you to join the Felinism Movement. Did you know that cats directly inspired some of the most enduring literature in history? Here’s proof that we inspired The Hardy Boys series: Romance, too. It defies belief that one of the […]

Effing Feline pronounces Felinism #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, showed my intellectual prowess last week by announcing the birth of a new movement certain to sweep the nation and redefine the Internet — felinism. However, there seems to be some uncertainty about how this new ism is pronounced. FEE line ism FEE lin ism Fuh LINE ism Effing ism etc. I shall […]

Effing Feline founds felinism #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, object to the way cats are objectified in advertisement! They’re treated not as individual cats, but as mere things. It’s not a new disgrace, either, as these pictures show. Puss in Boots, a heroic folk figure, is here reduced to a mere caricature to sell shoe polish! If that doesn’t convince your […]

Quick Quiz about Earth’s new neighbor

Q. Quick quiz: What’s the nearest star to our sun? A. Proxima Centauri — a red dwarf that is too faint to be seen with the naked eye. It’s part of a three-star system, the brightest of which is Alpha Centauri. Q. Interesting! The villains in Ed’s Repelling the Invasion series are called Proximanians; I wonder […]

Keep that thing away from me #mfrwauthor

After missing a couple weeks, I’m back with a hook from Escapee, a re-release of an award-winning science fiction romance. Catt Sayer and Hector Dukelsky are fleeing an enemy invasion, in an airship. They have company — an ugly creature called a skoot, which was described earlier like this: “Except for sparse fur, its head […]
