Saturday's Blurbs featuring books by Barb Caffrey #MFRWauthor #fantasy #Science fiction #Military

First, the Elfy duology, with book 1 being AN ELFY ON THE LOOSE (only ninety-nine cents at Barnes and Noble and Amazon!) -- Amazon US -- Barnes and Noble -- OmniLit/AllRomance


One Elfy for an entire planet?

He's supposed to be the Watcher for his people, the representative on Earth from his dimension, but the small being known to his enemies as "Jonny-Wonny" wakes up to big trouble -- trapped in a bizarre house in Knightsville, California with humans straight out of reality TV. Jon knows that something has gone dreadfully wrong -- he's starving, lonely and dressed in funny clothes.

Enter the couple's ten-year-old diminutive daughter, who is "Not Daisy!" but is brilliant, sweet...and using high level magic with ease. She's also desperately in need of a friend. Insisting her name is really Sarah, and christening him Bruno, his new friend asks him how they're going to get out of there.

The only thing that comes to mind is for Bruno to ask his teacher, Roberto the Wise, for help. But Roberto's attempt at help only enmeshes all three of them further in a web of deceit and treachery.

Bruno finds out that, unfortunately, most of what he thought he knew about himself was very wrong...and much of what Sarah knows about herself is also wrong, including her age.

Worst of all, a Dark Elf is on the scene and is intent on corrupting the local Humans, including Sarah's parents.

New names, new locations, a new mission--Bruno is going to get to the bottom of all the craziness, and Sarah will be there for him every step of the way.

Watch out, universe -- an Elfy is on the loose!

and A LITTLE ELFY IN BIG TROUBLE, book 2 of the Elfy duology... -- Amazon US -- Barnes and -- OmniLit/AllRomance


Young Bruno the Elfy and Sarah, his mostly-human teenage girlfriend, are in deep trouble. Bruno's Elfy mentor Roberto the Wise is about to be sacrificed by a Dark Elf, and Sarah's parents have decided to help the Elf rather than the Elfy. Things look bleak and are getting worse by the minute, but Bruno and Sarah have a number of allies -- human, Elfy, and ghosts -- that the Dark Elf can't possibly expect.

Can young love, desperation, and great unexpected power win out despite it all?

And for something completely different, read my military SF novella, "To Survive the Maelstrom," co-written with my late husband Michael B. Caffrey and available only at Amazon and Kindle Unlimited.



Command Sergeant-Major Sir Peter Welmsley of the Atlantean Union has lost everything he holds dear. He wonders why he lived, when so many others died at Hunin — including his fiancĂ©e, Lydia, and his best friend Chet.

Into his life comes Grasshunter’s Cub, an empathic, sentient creature known to those on Heligoland as a “weremouse.”

Weremice are known for their ability to help their bond-mates. But how can this young weremouse find a way to bring Peter back from the brink of despair and start living again?

Note for readers: I wrote this around 2K words my late husband, Michael B. Caffrey, left behind after his untimely passing in 2004. I wrote most of this in 2014, and plan to write more about Peter Welmsley and his adventures in the not-so-distant future. -- Barnes and Noble
