You’re ordering me to strip you? #mfrwHooks

Welcome to the Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop, Book Hooks. Writers share a short snippet of their works to entice you. On Sunday I shipped my latest messterpiece off to the editor. To celebrate, here’s a snippet from page two of Rescuing Prince Charming, a science fiction romance that’ll be available late this year, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Effing Feline Needs More Catnip

I, Effing Feline, write these weekly posts for Ed Hoornaert, aka Mr. Valentine, This snippet from Mr. V’s newest release, Alien Contact for Kid Sisters. Lots of folks posted that last week’s snippet had them dying to know whether Marianne gave in to her desires. She’s falling in love with Quinn, who saved twelve-year-old Elfy from rebel gunfire. Marianne thinks […]

Effing Feline, Drunk as a Thunk

I, Effing Feline, float high above the floor, turning lazily in the air, dreaming of mice, purring and stretching as I ride a purple haze of catnip-induced euphoria… Anyone know any good rehab clinic for catnip addicts? Back to work … gotta earn my catnip, eh?  Another snippet from Alien Contact for Kid Sisters, the latest release by Ed […]

Effing Feline’s HEA

I, Effing Feline, wish to congratulate Ed Hoornaert, aka Mr. Valentine, on his special day. Some folks think it’s unusual for a man to write romance, but he told me his secret last night as he rubbed my chin.  He married his high school sweetheart, several cat-lifetimes ago … and he’s still married to her! As he […]

Effing Feline Begs You Please

I, Effing Feline, am on my very best behavior today, because I’m still humiliated by having a stupid, wagging, slobbering, overeager dog fill in for me last week. ‘Humble’ is hard for a cat, so bear lion with me. Ahem. I humbly beg you, dearest gentle readers, to peruse this selection from Mr. Valentine’s newest release, Alien Contact for Kid Sisters, […]

Effing Feline Gets Replaced … by a DOG!

Forget the stupid cat–he has a tummy ache from eating too much catfood. Filling in for him is me, Twiggles, Edward Hoornaert’s dog! Isn’t that great!  But this isn’t about me — after all, I’m not a cat, though I sure do hope you like me! — but about a bunch of really brilliant writers in the […]

Effing Feline’s Thoughts on Labor Management

I, Effing Feline, solved last week’s problem in a very satisfying way. If you recall, the bird who was my typist/editor was on strike for more birdseed. I’ll tell you how I did it in a minute. Last week, we left Marianne, the heroine of Mr. V’s very soon-to-be-released Alien Contact for Kid Sisters, sprawled on a hotel room […]

Effing Feline Is Hissed Off

I, Effing Feline, am hissed off. For this week’s Eight Sentence Sunday, I wanted to continue with another excerpt from Escapee, an SF romance that Mr. Valentine (aka Edward Hoornaert) recently sold and which will be released early next year. I was just about to introduce the story’s heroic kitten, and I had a big speech prepared. […]
