The worst of times . . . #mfrwhooks

Alien Contact for an Enhanced Nutcracker, a holiday novella, is the sixth installment in my Alien Contact for Idiots series, though it can stand alone. The book opens five years from next November on a dark, rainy side street in Tacoma, Washington. Squinting against needles of rain, Holly tried to find her car, which was […]

She needs a Christmas Miracle #mfrwhooks

Alien Contact for an Enhanced Nutcracker, a holiday novella, is the sixth installment in my Alien Contact for Idiots series, though it can stand alone. The book opens five years from next November on a dark, rainy side street in Tacoma, Washington. Here’s the opening of the book. “It was the best of times, it was the […]

Ready for a Christmas Miracle? #mfrwhooks

It’s October, so new book today! Alien Contact for an Enhanced Nutcracker, a holiday novella, is the sixth installment in my Alien Contact for Idiots series. It’s been marinating in my cerebrospinal fluid for a few years now. While sitting in the orchestra pit, playing for live performances of The Nutcracker, I started wondering what […]

Out of action #mfrwhooks

Today is the last snippet from Love thy Galactic Enemy, — which is now live! I’m continuing with last week’s action scene, where we see Finn’s heroic side. Riding a grav sled while Minta, and a friend are returning from a clinic visit, a Finn is startled when a quartet of men attack. Up to […]

Fuzzy around the edges #mfrwhooks

I’m continuing with snippets from Love thy Galactic Enemy, — which is now live! I’m skipping ahead to an action scene. Returning from a clinic visit, a quartet of men attack Minta and Finn — aiming for her because of her enemy roots. Up to now, Finn has been ill and passive. He’s sweet, sure, […]

She had to, because he was a cop #mfrwhooks

I’m continuing with snippets from Love thy Galactic Enemy, — which is now live! Yes, like Frankenstein’s monster, Love thy Galactic Enemy now stalks the e-readers of the world, spreading havoc (and a bit of romance) across the far reaches of the Milky Way Galaxy. All my hooks from this book have featured that beloved […]

The rest was a dream #mfrwhooks

I’m continuing with snippets from Love thy Galactic Enemy, my September 9 SFR release — all of them featuring that beloved alien pet, the rat-like mizzet. Lou, our heroine, is taking care of Finn, an ill enemy in a tiny flophouse room on Farflung Space Station, where she is trapped. She has also picked up […]

The girl with kaleidoscope eyes #mfrwhooks

The title of this post is a bit misleading, but I couldn’t help referencing Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band. If you don’t know what song I’m talking about, check out Monday’s blog post. Hint: It’s about kaleidoscope eyes. In this snippet from Love thy Galactic Enemy, my September 9 SFR release, it isn’t a […]

It’s just you and me, Brainless #mfrwhooks

Another hook from Love thy Galactic Enemy, my September 9 SFR release. I’m still focusing on the alien pet — a mizzet. Such was the luxury afforded to the Farflung equivalent of a flophouse—luxury Lou could afford for only three more nights, assuming she lost her appetite. If her secret contact didn’t show up soon, […]

More about mizzets #mfrwhooks

Last week I showed you the cover for Love thy Galactic Enemy, my September SFR release. Now I’m focusing on an alien pet — a mizzet. As dumb creatures went, mizzets were very dumb — but empathetic to human emotions, so surely this one sensed it wasn’t welcome. Although its tiny legs were capable of […]
