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 […]

Effing Feline Meows his Mind

I, Effing Feline, have a free rein with this week’s post! Mr Valentine (i.e. my pet human, Ed) won’t be looking over my shoulder. He’s spending much of the weekend at the local Comic Con, speaking on panels and selling books — although maybe I should make that ‘book,’ singular. Snort. Yay, I got away […]

Effing Feline isn’t to blame #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, wished you a Happy Halloween last week, even though that was too early — but it’s not my fault. Twiggles the dog is to blame. She tried on her costume and wanted a picture, and that confused me. It’s all her fault! I’ve selected another snippet from Escapee, book 2 of the […]

Nice Words about Newborn

Just a quick post today to share a great magazine review of my science fiction romance, Newborn, that I received today.  Here are some highlights: This tense science fiction thriller is a delightful surprise from beginning to end. The characters are beautifully layered and complex, and the love story is romantic in the best sense […]

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! My ego is, shall we say, well developed, and I’m somewhat prone to tooting my own horn. Of course, that’s only natural for an oboist, right? Whose […]

SFR Brigade Showcase, November 2017

Once a month, the Science Fiction Romance Brigade’s showcase enables the brigade’s authors to highlight snippets from new works, WIPs, cover reveals or other fun things. This month I want to do two things: 1) crow, and 2) advertise. Crow I attended last month’s InD’Scribe conference, run by InD’Tale Magazine, a good resource for indie and […]

Effing Feline seeks his roots

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. Today I’ll show you the first of my famous relatives. Joan of Arcat is one of the most famous European cats. She’s considered a heroine […]

Call me a Prairie Vole #mfrwauthor

Once again, here’s the Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop. For  week 41, the writing prompt is: My First Love Scientists have found that some prairie voles are genetically programmed to be monogamous. They’ve even located the gene that controls this. Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have found that natural selection drives some […]

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 […]

Indescribable! #mfrwauthor

Once again, here’s the Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop. For  week 41, the writing prompt is: My Blogging Inspiration This topic leaves me scratching my head, uncertain what is meant. But hey, it’s not a school essay assignment, so I’m just going to write about any darned thing that happens to inspire me to blog. […]
