Effing Feline renames himself #wewriwa

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. […]

From Effing Feline’s species to yours #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am too busy to write — Christmas presents to claw open, cards to send.  I hope I have enough pee for Twiggles the Dog’s card! Instead, here are some Christmas greetings from my species to yours. Alien Contact for a Christmas Nutcracker is Ed’s sci fi novella for the holidays. Holly Jansen […]

Almost like dancing #mfrwhooks

In Alien Contact for a Christmas Nutcracker, Holly Jansen is an American hired to conduct The Nutcracker ballet in a performance for and by alien humans from an alternate Earth. When she meets sexy Rafe Sekwa, the head of the dancers, he’s in the middle of a rehearsal. When he was done and waved his […]

Effing Feline laughs at Ed #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, told you last week that Mr Valentine — the book Ed inspired, not my pet — has been turned into a graphic novel. The book answers a question that I know has been keeping all of my fans up at night. Namely, what would Mr V look like if his dad was […]

It could’ve been wishful thinking #mfrwhooks

In Alien Contact for a Christmas Nutcracker, Holly Jansen is an American hired to conduct The Nutcracker ballet in a performance for and by alien humans from an alternate Earth. When she meets sexy Rafe Sekwa, the head of the dancers, he’s in the middle of a rehearsal. “If I am brusque,” he said, “it […]

Effing Feline finds the purrfect Christmas present #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am chuffed, thrilled, and purring. Finally, finally, I have gotten the glory I deserve — though not from my pet human, Mr Valentine. As many of you know, Ed’s called Mr Valentine after inspiring a Rita-Award finalist book of that name by a friend, Vicki Lewis Thompson. It’s about a guy with […]

What a gorgeous Christmas present he’d be #mfrwhooks

In Alien Contact for a Christmas Nutcracker, Holly Jansen is an American hired to conduct The Nutcracker ballet in a performance for and by alien humans from an alternate Earth. During a tour of the aliens’ arts center, Lissette, the center’s manager, mentions that she’d had a one night stand with the lead dancer, Rafe […]

Effing Feline won NaNuWiMo #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, have my own version of National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. Ed, my pet human, recently celebrated his best ever NaNoWriMo by completing a record (for him) number of words on his next messterpiece. I call my version National Number of Winks Month, or NaNuWiMo. The goal is to grab the most […]

In the presence of genius #mfrwhooks

In case you missed the announcement last week, I’ve changed the name of the holiday novella I’ve been snippeting from. The new name is Alien Contact for a Christmas Nutcracker, rather than Enhanced Nutcracker. Using the word Christmas in the title seems wise from a marketing POV. Holly Jansen is an American hired to conduct The […]
