I am a little disappointed in myself. By this time I would have had most if not all of my Christmas shopping done, and would have been in full smugginess. Here we are, half way through November and I have only bought a few little things. I haven’t even made a list! It’s not that I am feeling like a Scrooge or anything. I still love the holiday season, but gift buying this year seems different. Hubby says we should just make gifts for everyone. It’s not a bad idea at all. I just need inspiration. I bet a Hallmark Original Christmas Movie will do the trick!

Genre: Crime Fiction | Humor & Satire

FREE for a limited time

DEAD FUNNY – A killer collection of ballsy women and their stories.
DEAD FUNNY confirms that the world is as crazy and off-kilter as you always suspected. It’s an outrageous quartet of Noir-Ha-Ha short stories throbbing with dark humour and suspense. It focuses a dark satirical light on the lives of four very different, but equally ballsy women who cross a moral line to get what they want.

Annabel, a fast-fading celebrity, will do more or less any anything to remain popular… yep, ANYTHING, including an unintentional homicide! Best read with a cool drink. That’s CELEBRITY ROAST.

Tayla is the famously beautiful Aussie Supermodel from hell who finds herself in a lurid jam at the swish end of London. The King Rat of the paparazzi has a score to settle. What’s even tastier for him is that the deal they strike is over a dead body and their conspiracy of silence. But Tayla is one tough cookie, as he soon finds out in PAPARATZ, a Noir-Ha-Ha scum-fest.

Anita had a game plan until the day she became TRAPPED IN CLOUD CUCKOOLAND. Her life showcases the sleazier side of Switzerland. Forget cuckoo clocks, dirndls and yodelling. Just watch Anita’s initial fascination, her growing fantasy and then horror as her life melts down into a vintage, non-PC train wreck of a crime thriller with an ironic twist.

Robyn, the obsessed fan from FAN FATALE, is reaching for an impossible dream. Her dark plot is to befriend and live with the TV star she idolizes. The trap is set. But hold your breath.Think Psycho meets Fatal Attraction.

The bodies mount up in this dark comedy crime fest. Jinx James likes to call DEAD FUNNY “Noir-Ha-Ha at its feistiest”.

Genre: Action & Adventure

This special operative and a K-9 handler must work in close proximity to stop a bomber. They might kill each other… or wind up in bed.

After a string of deaths are linked to a man locked up for another crime, Special Operative Alix Broshears and his team are racing against the clock to stop him before another person dies. Bringing in the gorgeous handler from a local K-9 unit makes sense — unless you ask Broshears’ libido. When it comes to the intelligent woman who thinks on her feet, his control is tested every damn minute.

Vivian Valentine is up for the challenge of joining the team on yet another mission with her K-9 partner, Zack. She’s also determined to prove her worth to a certain special operative who takes arguing with her seriously.

Sure, they hate each other. They’re also friends.

And there might have been one encounter in a closet, but they don’t discuss that.

Despite their strained ties, when Broshears learns Vivian’s in peril, the race is on to save her. Nothing can keep him from holding back his wrath against their enemies… or his feelings for the woman he’s determined to rescue.

Briarwitch Academy 1: A Whisper Before Dawn
by KC Kingmaker
4.3 Stars (335 Reviews)
Genre: Fantasy

FREE for a limited time

I don’t look for trouble. It finds me: murderous teachers, sexy supernaturals, devious plots.

My name is Dawn Rose. I was the food-scavenger for my group of outcasts in the Fringe — what used to be LA County before the Abnorms and supernaturals turned it into a hellscape. But I never expected to witness a brutal murder-by-magic.

Now I’ve been whisked off to Briarwitch Academy, the place where magic goes to grow. The faculty think I have an ancient untapped power. Yeah, right. Like I’m going to fit in with drunken gnomes and goth pixies. And then there are the smoldering shifter dudes. One of them basically stalks me. The other hates me. I want them both.

I’m just trying to survive the bullies and my classes and the magical weirdos who don’t think I belong here. But when evil threatens the academy, I have to stop it from reaching back home. And that whole murder thing? I know who did it. And he knows I know. And life’s about to get way more complicated…

This is a slow-burn reverse harem paranormal romance with more heat than a fresh ghost pepper and more mystery than that missing Tupperware lid in your kitchen.
