Newborn by Edward Hoornaert – Review

Originally posted on Whiskey With My Book:
Review by KJ Van Houten Review of Newborn And now for something completely different! For some reason, the word ‘romp’ comes to mind after I read Newborn. The dictionary defines romp as “a spell of rough, energetic play” and yeah, that sort of fits! If you’ve read any…


SFR Brigade Showcase for April

Welcome to the Science Fiction Romance Brigade’s showcase. Once a month, the brigade’s authors highlight snippets from new work, WIPs, cover reveals or other fun things. But let me start at the beginning. Most stories begin with a grain of sand. Not literal sand. Mental sand. When a rough grain of sand gets caught in […]

Effing Feline cleans up

I, Effing Feline, have little time to write today. Too busy cleaning up for Christmas, since all four of Mr V’s children will be home for the holidays and I don’t want them to think I neglect my fur.  Here’s a picture of me, bathing: Since next Sunday is Christmas, this will be my last post […]

Effing Feline says “Let your cat write!”

My pet human, Ed Hoornaert, is incredibly lucky that I, Effing Feline, write these blog posts for him.  He tried writing the other day after a hiatus due to various ills, and look what happened to his hand: Yes, folks, typing is dangerous!  So all of you writers out there: Get a cat. Feed it […]

Effing Feline’s heroic scratching

I, Effing Feline, have orders from my pet human, Ed Hoornaert, to show some of the romance in Newborn, Mr V’s newest science fiction romance.  Personally I loved last week’s excerpt, about the salmon run.  The thought of all those fish was enough to make me swoon. But he who buys the cat food picks the tune, […]

Effing Feline gives thanks

I, Effing Feline, am looking forward to the U.S. Thanksgiving next Thursday. I can’t wait for that first bite of mince-mouse pie! But my pet human Ed, aka Mr Valentine, insists that the holiday is a time for giving thanks for our blessings, so here goes. I’m thankful for: Being a cat. Twiggles the Dog. More specifically, […]

Effing Feline apologizes

I, Effing Feline, must apologize. Not that I’m at fault, of course.  Mr. V is. Several weeks ago, Ed Hoornaert (i.e., Mr V) had me write “Since Sunday’s a travel day, Mr. V will be late getting to your posts. But he’ll get there!” Unfortunately, that was a lie. Instead, after taking two days, not one, […]

Effing Feline has superpowers (Dec 4)

I, Effing Feline, have a lot in common with Jo Beaverpaw, the heroine of Newborn, Mr V’s newest science fiction romance.  You see, although Jo is injured and spends the first half of the book recuperating, she heals superfast.  Not only that, she has superpowers that slowly emerge as she heals. As a member of […]

Effing Feline heads home

I, Effing Feline, am returning home. None too soon for poor Mr V.  In separate incidents, he wrenched his shoulder, whacked his head, picked up a debilitating virus, and then fell heavily.  I think Amsterdam hates him. Another excerpt today from Newborn, Mr V’s upcoming science fiction romance. Jo Beaverpaw was born alone in a forest moments, […]
