A Cat’s-Eye View: New additions

Just when I thought I’d seen it all. Seen all the new things, the crazy things my writer-human could do. And then she goes and does this. She brings home a kitten. Yup. You heard right. I now have a younger cat in the house. A little black ball of fluff, claws and terror. What,

This has to be the fifteenth time I’ve fixed this stupid thing.” Okay, so it was probably more like the fifth. But still. I’m slipping. I must be getting

A place where people speak your language

NOTE: Did you spot Waldo? He’s chowing down in the photo above. All of us here at Crosshair Press love great stories, regardless of genre. The first three novels we released this past year ran the gamut from space opera (Nameless) to romantic comedy (Finding Fireflies) to action/adventure (Kenan). But almost unanimously (one of us

More on the Care and Keeping of a Writer-Human

Yup, it’s me again, Miss Muzzy! A few of you might remember me, when I made my new home with my writer-owner (Carrie Lemke) a few months ago. Let me tell you, things are going great! Now, that’s not to say things are perfect. After all, it takes a while to get to know someone,

Writer’s block and life’s dead ends

Writer’s block and life’s dead ends

Every author will tell you they’ve hit that dreaded barrier at some point in their work of genius. It’s a dead-end alley where amateur’s and wannebe’s dreams go to die.

Terminator: Genisys

Terminator: Genisys

When I heard the powers that be were making another Terminator movie, I cringed inside. Hadn’t they learned their lesson with Rise of the Machines and Terminator: Salvation?  Then I heard that they had named it Terminator: Genisys. Ugh. Really?

Katiller Character Short: Dreaming

Kris sat up, gasping, reaching out and finding only tangled sheets. She fell back on the bed, drawing in hurried breaths, and closed her eyes. God. That dream. It always started the same way.

When in the course of human events…

“Doesn’t matter what the press says. Doesn’t matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn’t matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right.
