Effing Feline says Beep beep! #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, told you last week that I’m determined to become independent — which means I have to figure out how to open cat food cans. Being a wily, observant cat, I got plenty of ideas from one of grandson Wesley’s TV shows. I’ll tell you about them after this commercial break from our […]

Effing Feline declares independence #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, complained about not being able to open cat food cans . . . but Twiggles the Dog laughed at my complaint. She said pets like us get food in exchange for love, loyalty, and a pledge to defend our beloved owners with our own lives if necessary. But I am NOT a […]

Effing Feline tries telekinesis #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, changed my name last week to Efrem Thimbalist Jr. After sleeping on it, though, I’ve decided the name isn’t classy enough. I’m still thinking long and hard of name splendid enough for a cat like me who can do anything. Anything, that is, except for one crucial thing, which I’ll tell you […]

I, Effing Feline, am snippeting from a book that Ed is revisiting, renaming, and re-covering, It used to be called The Midas Rush. Now it isn’t.  I’m feeling cantankerous — it’s been a whole hour since my last nap — so I’ll be effed if I tell you the new name right away. Tresky Buffrum […]

Effing Feline doesn’t want to look back #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, don’t believe in this human nonsense of reviewing the year that is ending. You wouldn’t want to look behind either if the only tool you had to wipe your butt was your tongue. The view ain’t great. Christmas is over and so are the snippets from Alien Contact for a Christmas Nutcracker. […]

More wine? #MFRWHooks

This week I’m joining another Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop: Book Hooks. Writers share the first few sentences of their works in hopes of luring you in. Here’s the opening of The Midas Rush, my first science fiction romantic comedies, back when I was marketing more as science fiction than romance. “More wine?” asked […]

Effing Feline runs a shredding service

I, Effing Feline, am considering starting a manuscript evaluation service. I think I’d be good at it, because my claws are so very, very sharp. I’ll rate stories by dead mice: 3 dead mice is good, 1 or 2 dead mice means I couldn’t get my claws into it. In theory, it’s a 5-mouse scale, but […]

Effing Feline arranges flowers

I, Effing Feline, am mollified. Last week I was hissing mad at my pet human, Ed Hoornaert, because he didn’t take me to his nephew’s wedding even though I got new clothes for the affair. But Mr V brought me a corsage from the wedding and let me bat it around until all the petals were spread over the […]
