News: Maine Coon #cats, zoos, and a tasty dip plus plenty of #romance, some free! #MFRWorg

I made a quick and delicious dip with a can of artichokes (drained), a couple of ounces of cream cheese, and some green chile. If you can't get real New Mexico green chile, you might be able to find a weaker canned version in the Mexican section of your grocery store, or try salsa.

Lots of cute animals and enthusiastic keepers! We're watching it on Disney +. It's also on National Geographic TV or for sale on Amazon.

A Cat Cafe Sweet #Romance is on sale for 99 cents #MFRWauthor


Coffee and Crushes at the Cat Café: A Furrever Friends Sweet Romance is on sale for 99 cents this week!

“A heartwarming story of two cautious people learning to love each other. The cats and cakes were an added bonus.”

What do you do when you meet the guy of your dreams? Set him up with your sister, of course.

Kari doesn't have time for love when she's opening her new cat café. Renovating an old restaurant, hiring employees, fighting with the health inspector – oh, and welcoming 16 shelter cats – keeps her plenty busy. She's doing this for the cats, the community, and most of all her family. The café will give her sister, Marley, a job worthy of her baking skills.

Then a tattooed military vet wanders in claiming to be a master baker himself. The café doesn't need another baker, but maybe Marley needs a man. Surely she'll fall for a guy this sweet, this sexy, this tasty.

Colin has other ideas. It's Kari who makes him want to pour on the sugar and turn up the heat. But he's spent the last two years recovering from physical and psychological wounds. Is he really ready for a relationship? He's not even sure he should commit to Samson, the fluffy marshmallow of a cat who steals his heart.

The Furrever Friends Sweet Romance series features the workers and customers at a small-town cat café, and the adorable cats and kittens looking for their forever homes. Each book is a complete story with a happy ending for one couple (and maybe more than one rescued cat). These sweet romances will leave you with the warm, fuzzy feeling of cuddling a purring cat.

If you enjoy friends to lovers tropes, work romances, military heroes, and strong heroines completely failing at playing the matchmaker, check out Coffee and Crushes at the Cat Café. You'll also find rescue cats with plenty of personality and their own ideas about what love is.

I loved this book so much that I purchased the next book in the series, and it is just as sweet!”

Get this sweet romance on Amazon, or free with Kindle Unlimited. 

Join my newsletter and get a glimpse into the Furrever Friends Cat Café with a free sweet romance novella complete at 35 pages. Lions and Love at the Cat Café is available in PDF, MOBI, and ePub. Get it free when you sign up for the Kris Bock email newsletter. You’ll also get a printable copy of the recipes mentioned in the cat café novels, plus cute cat photos, book news, and more.

A Sweet Home Alabama novel excerpt plus #mystery on sale! #YAlit #comedy #MFRWhooks

Below you'll find an excerpt from the Sweet Home Alabama novel my brother Doug and I wrote. But did you know our mom (now age 80) is also a writer? Check out our cozy mystery Mother's Day sale. Both mysteries are on sale for 99 cents (Kindle US and UK) each until May 15.
Murder on the West Glacier Trail by Sharon Eboch: If Kate Foland had known how her bed and breakfast guest would change her life, she might have left her at the airport. Murder on the West Glacier Trail is a cozy mystery full of the local flavor of Juneau, Alaska, including the scenery, the culture, and some tasty recipes.

What We Found by Kris Bock (Chris Eboch):
22-year-old Audra Needham is back in her small hometown, ready to work hard, fit in, and help her younger brother. Going for a walk in the woods with her former crush, Jay, seems like a harmless distraction … until they stumble on a body. What We Found is a romantic mystery set in New Mexico.

Sweet Home Alabama novel by Douglas J. Eboch and Kris Bock

​​Before Melanie Smooter became hot fashion designer Melanie Carmichael, she was known as Felony Melanie, the teenage troublemaker of Pigeon Creek, Alabama. Aching to escape the boredom of small-town life, she gets into many reckless adventures. Her boyfriend, Jake, is always by her side – and the local sheriff is usually close behind.

Excerpt: Melanie has challenged Eldon to a contest. Can she throw a rock and hit the cans lined up on the railing at the old moonshiner's cabin in the woods?

“Any time now, Princess,” Eldon said.

“You in some kind of hurry to lose five bucks?” But he was getting in her head. Five dollars was a week’s allowance.

Jake swaggered over to her.

“Stop toying with the poor boy, baby. Put him out of his misery.” He kissed her forehead and whispered in her ear, “You got this.”

His voice calmed her. And he was right. She’d been playing catch with her daddy since before she could remember, being the son he never had. They’d made up all kinds of games, too, trying for silly trick shots. She wound up and hurled the first rock.

PANG! A can went flying. Melanie pumped her fist, trying not to look surprised.

Wade and Lurlynn clapped. Clinton guzzled beer.

Eldon shrugged. “Lucky throw.”

Ooh, that jerk! She could go for the next three cans, but even if she hit them all, he’d find some way to laugh at her. And if she missed …

She had to make a trick shot so outrageous no one else would even think of trying it.

Melanie glanced around. The firelight glinted on glass in the weeds. She picked up a shard of broken bottle and turned her back to the cabin.

“You watch this.” She held up the shard, turning it left and right, trying to make out images in the reflection.

Clinton shook his head. “Girl, you ain’t right!”

“Maybe, but I’m going to be five bucks richer in a moment.” Dang, she couldn’t find the reflection she wanted. Ghostly images stretched and twisted in the curved glass as the fire’s flames danced behind her.

Finally the porch rail appeared in the reflection. She tossed a rock up and down in her hand. This was crazy. A one in a million shot.

Which meant she had a chance.

A moment of calm settled over her. She could do this.

It was difficult to throw behind her. She would have to arc the rock. But that was where her softball experience would give her an edge. She took a deep breath, and with the exhale, hurled the rock over her shoulder.

PANG – CRASH!

She did it! She jumped into the air in triumph, pumping her fist, then turned around to gloat.

But wait – that hadn’t been the sound of a rock hitting a can.

The bourbon bottle no longer sat on the edge of the porch. Brown glass lay scattered across the rocks of the fire pit. Rivulets of liquid shone in the dancing light, and the molasses-sweet smell of bourbon filled the air.

“You broke the booze,” Eldon wailed.

“But I hit something.” It came out meek and apologetic, and she mentally kicked herself.

Nobody paid attention to her. A spark from the fire pit jumped to a trickle of spilled bourbon. Flame shot along the rivulet and fanned out where the bourbon had splashed across the cabin’s porch.

Jake gasped. “Hell’s bells. You’ve done it now!”

For this entire scene, sign up for our newsletter and get Felony Melanie Destroys the Moonshiner's Cabin. These first two chapters from the novel Felony Melanie in Pageant Pandemonium stand alone as a short story. In the future, you'll get fun content about upcoming Felony Melanie novels and other romantic comedy news and links.

Felony Melanie in Pageant Pandemonium: The Teenage Adventures of Felony Melanie

When Melanie qualifies for the Miss Alabama Princess Pageant Southern Regional in the big city of Mobile, the first prize scholarship could be her ticket out of Pigeon Creek. But can her homemade dresses compete against the expensive gowns, and can a "trailer trash" girl survive when a haughty debutante will do anything to destroy the competition.

Meanwhile, Jake thinks beauty pageants are silly, but he’ll be there to support Melanie – as long as he can avoid getting kicked out by hotel security. Then Jake and his friends start to suspect someone is sabotaging the whole pageant. They try to follow the clues, but it isn't easy when everyone dismisses you as redneck kids.

Melanie needs to prove herself on stage. Jake and the gang need to make sure she gets the chance. Can they show they're more than what people see on the surface?

Excerpt:


“Up and at ’em.” Melanie’s mama threw open the curtains, sending a flood of sunlight into the room.
Melanie moaned as the sunlight stabbed right through her eyelids into her brain. She shaded her eyes and squinted at the clock. The numbers danced and blurred. She might still be drunk. Finally, she made out the time. Nine in the morning. Was this part of her mama’s revenge?
Her mama bumped the bed with her hip, rocking it, and Melanie’s head spun.
“Let’s go. We gotta get you cleaned up for the pageant. And the way you look, that’s gonna take some time.”
The pageant? Right, today was the Pigeon Creek Princess Pageant.
“I thought I was grounded.” Her voice sounded like sandpaper on gravel.
“You are. ’Cept for school and pageants. Those are important to your future. Now get in the shower. I’ll pack up your stuff.” Mama opened the closet and pulled out Melanie’s fancy pink gown with the big, ruffly skirt and poofy shoulders.
“Mama, that dress is so old-fashioned. Can I wear the new one I made?”
“You mean that plain, off-the-shoulder one?”
“It’s not plain. It’s sleek. Y’know, modern. It’s the kind that’s in all the fashion magazines now.”
“Well, that modern look may win pageants up in New York or Chicago, but Southern judges are traditional. You want to win, don’t you?”
Melanie rolled onto her side. The bed bobbed and pitched like a leaky rowboat on a windy lake. “I want to sleep,” she mumbled.
“Lordy, I swear girl, you’re gonna end up spending your whole life working down at the tire factory if you don’t shape up. You know the winner of today’s pageant gets to compete in the Miss Alabama Princess Pageant Southern Regional.”
Oh, right. The Pigeon Creek Princess Pageant was not only the most important local pageant of the year, it was a qualifier for the regional pageant over in Mobile.
“First prize at the regional pageant includes a big ol’ scholarship,” her mama said.
 The scholarship wasn’t as tempting to Melanie as her mama probably hoped, but it would be so cool to go to Mobile, hang out in the big city. She had to get up. This was just a little ol’ hangover. It wouldn’t be the first time she’d powered through one of those.
She tried to sit up. The room spun. She fell back onto the bed. “I don’t feel so good, Mama.”
“I shouldn’t wonder. You hear about the judges for the regional pageant?”
“What about them?”
“Well, one is a former Miss America,” Mama said slowly, “and one is the Miss Alabama Princess from a few years back.”
No surprise there.
“There’s a professional dancer, and a cheerleading coach.”
“Uh huh.”
“And one man is a fashion designer. From New York City.”
For a moment, Melanie didn’t move. Then she pushed herself up to sitting and squinted at her mama. “For real?”
Mama nodded. “It’s in the brochure, which you’d know if you bothered to read. Now get your lazy biscuits out of bed and into that shower. I’ll make hotcakes for breakfast. Not that you deserve any after what you pulled last night.”
A real fashion designer. From the biggest, most glamorous city in America. Melanie had never met anyone who actually designed clothes before. Someone who knew the latest trends before they hit the streets of New York, years before cheap knockoff versions made it to Pigeon Creek. Better than that, he actually created the trends.
She could meet a real, live designer.
If she got to Mobile.
If she won this pageant.
Melanie had to rally. She forced herself out of bed with one big heave. Stumbled to the bathroom. Her teeth felt fuzzy as peach skin. Her eyes were red-veined marbles in sooty sockets, and her tangled hair could be hiding any number of bird’s nests. She stuck out her tongue at her reflection. Some beauty queen.
No doubt about it, the bill from yesterday had come due.
Melanie gathered her energy to pay the cost of that bill. She turned on the shower and dove in with a yelp. By the time the water warmed up, maybe she’d be awake.

Excerpt from Felony Melanie Destroys the Moonshiner's Cabin:


She paused at the edge of the bleachers. She’d be in full view as she went from the stands to the parking lot. Only for a minute, but it was the most important minute of this plan. The ref blew his whistle. Mama turned toward Daddy. Melanie slipped out from under the bleachers.

Don’t look back. Don’t hurry. Be cool. Running would attract more attention.

Shuffling and snorting sounds rose from nearby.

Melanie jerked to a stop and searched for the source of the noise.

It didn’t matter. She had to keep moving. She stepped forward.

Three boys popped up from behind the next car. They raced away as if launched out of a cannon.

Bang! Bang! Bang!

Melanie jumped high enough to set a world record. When she finally landed, she gasped for air. Dang redneck boys, starting their Friday partying early with cherry bombs in the parking lot.

Principal Peck shouted from the stands, “You boys git over here!”

The boys took off into the woods cackling like hens.

Everyone in the county must be looking her way. Melanie resisted every urge to look back toward the bleachers. She took one shaky step after another, whispering, “Wasn’t me, nothing to see here, just some blonde girl nobody knows.”

Another voice cut through the humid air. “Melanie Smooter! You’re supposed to be grounded, young lady!”

Melanie glanced back. Adults frowned and shook their heads, while teenagers laughed and waved. Heat crept across her cheeks.

Her mama stood at the top of the bleachers, hands on her hips, glaring. “Earl, you go collect that fool girl.”

Melanie ducked her head and spun away, but it was too late to pretend she hadn’t heard, and way too late to pretend she hadn’t been at the game. Her mama would pitch a fit to end all fits. Melanie would probably be grounded for the rest of the year. Why couldn’t Mama understand? She and Jake were in love. She simply had to see Jake play.

She ran her hands through her hair and swore softly. She should be there when Jake got off the field. He’d want her there.

If she was busted anyway, she might as well enjoy the rest of her last evening of freedom. She veered toward the school building with a grin. This Friday night just got a whole heap more interesting.

A Purrfect Comfort Read - sweet #romance Kittens and Kisses .99 sale #MFRWorg

Kittens and Kisses at the Cat Café: A Furrever Friends Sweet Romance is 99 cents on Kindle (US and UK) until 4/29.

He’s loved her forever. She still sees him as the neighbor kid. Can five desperate kittens bring them together?

Marley is a baker at the new Furrever Friends Cat Café, which is still trying to find its footing. Her nine-year-old son, Brian, desperately wants a kitten, but they can’t have pets where they live. Who has the time to date? Just as well that she’s protected her heart since the father of her child disappeared.

Adam has loved Marley since he was 13, and she was his best friend’s free-spirited older sister. Back then, he fantasized about rescuing her from bandits or dragons. Now he’s 24, and the five-year age gap isn’t so serious. He wants nothing more than to become a family with Marley and her son. But will she ever see him as a man?

When someone leaves a box of week-old kittens at the café, Adam jumps at the chance to be a hero. But herding kittens might be tougher than fighting dragons, especially when two of them fail to thrive. Can Adam, Marley, and Brian save the kittens and find a future together?


Here's a peek at Kittens and Kisses at the Cat Café:

Marley shook herself. “Right, the door. I almost forgot what startled me the first time. We don’t open for another ten minutes. I don’t understand why whoever it is couldn’t wait. Nobody needs coffee that badly.”

Marley strode to the front door. She pushed it open, glanced around, and looked down. “Oh.”

“What is it?” He couldn’t see past her, but something in her voice made him want to drag her back, get out front, and protect her.

She opened the door wider, moving with it so he could see.

He looked down at a cardboard box filled with wriggling fur. “Kittens?”



The Furrever Friends Sweet Romance series features the workers and customers at a small-town cat café, and the adorable cats and kittens looking for their forever homes. Each book is a complete story with a happy ending for one couple (and maybe more than one rescued cat). These sweet romances will leave you with the warm, fuzzy feeling of cuddling a purring cat.
