Why Do Wizards Hate Shirts?

Today I’m excited to share the release of my first “new” book since last year! SILVER BOUND is the story of a dragon shifter who escaped captivity in her dimension and the wizard who has made it his life’s quest to protect her. Except…she hates wizards and she is NOT the shrinking little violet he thought needed his help.

You can just go straight to Amazon and buy it if you’re already convinced!

But here’s that whole thing with the shirts. I mean, this is a mystery that needs solving.

There is a contest running with about 15 or so other authors who released stories set in Magic, New Mexico, today, and you can check out the details at the book page.

Until then, stay tuned to this blog, because I’m going to be interviewing many of my fellow authors…

Ok, ok, *I* am not. Meankitty is interviewing them. But I’m sure the answers will be interesting!

One More Down, Eight or So To Go!

Newly refurbished and released…but still full of romance, gnomes, fighting, snark, and good times!

Can a magical feline teach two stubborn fairies to open their hearts in time to save the world?

THREE GOALS
Embor Fiertag, Primary of the Fey Realm, has three goals. Get reelected, capture the rogue agents who tried to murder him, and improve his love life. His foretold bondmate is Anisette Serendipity, a Court trainee, but he hasn’t precisely shared the prophecy with her. How do you inform someone she belongs with you when she’s dating your chief political rival and doesn’t seem to like you at all?

TWO STUBBORN FAIRIES
In truth, Ani has always been intimidated by the stern Primary. He has good reason to disapprove of her–her sister nearly got him killed–and he always seems to be monitoring her. Waiting for her to screw up so he can oust her from Court as well. So why does Ani run straight to Embor after an overbearing suitor attempts the unthinkable?

ONE MAGICAL FELINE
When an unsavory political strategy gone all too right turns most of Court against Embor, the two of them, plus a manipulative magical feline, are forced to flee to humanspace. There they’ll have to find the courage to share their vulnerabilities and their hearts if they’re to have any hope of saving the entire Realm.

WARNING
This title contains sex, fairy drugs, rampant gnomes, bloodshed, and cats ruling the world. As they should.

Note: 1000 Kisses was titled One Thousand Kisses when published by Samhain Publishing until 2016. This edition has been reedited, reformatted, and updated with a new cover but has not been substantially altered.

Buy it at Amazon and Smashwords — so far! Or is there somewhere else you want to buy it? Let me know…

Also, if you already own this and just want the updated version, contact me and we’ll talk :). Not a ton of changes, but hey, why not?

Also also, REVIEWER COPIES!

New Release: PRODIGAL

Here is one of the rejected blurbs for PRODIGAL, the third book in the Maelstrom series…

If angels were aliens and sentient computers were good guys and the super hot Chosen One movie star failed to save the world and then got amnesia and there was an apocalypse…what was I talking about? Oh! PRODIGAL, book 3 of the Maelstrom Chronicles, is a gritty, action-packed, surprisingly humorous examination of the relationship between a kick-ass lady sheriff and the Hollywood hunk who nearly destroyed the world. Together, can they reverse the course of history?

Which Meme Is Best?

So, Susannah is now available again!  Only at Amazon so far but still — available and ONLY 99 cents for a week or two. If you liked Maleficent, Cinderella or any of the other fun fairy tale re-visionings that have been in the movies lately, Susannah is kind of like those, except sexier.

Anyway, which meme do you like best:

The Odor Strikes Back

Tragic news.

The $$ detail guy, despite spending 4 hours cleansing my mom’s car in an attempt to remove the stench of mousey death, failed at his appointed task. Don’t get me wrong — the car is spit shine clean inside. If our odiferous issue had been mere French fries…baby vomit…spilled beverages…years of life…I think this guy could have taken it down.

But he was not up to the carrion challenge.

At first, I thought he’d succeeded. The car smelled like plain old air. Normal! But then I turned on the a/c and the piquant combo of deceased, moldering rat and cheap man perfume blasted out of the vents again. I stumbled back, choking, crying, cursing, shaking my fist. No, wait. That was back during babies in diapers phase. What I did was slam the door and sigh deeply, in true Eeyorean fashion.

I am disappoint.

Next stop, a mechanic, to take the damned thing apart until he finds the dead bodies.

Also, because it is new release week, allow me to share this great interview I did with Veronica Scott about TRAITOR! No bad smells were mentioned.

Oliver is SHOCKED at how bad the car smells.

Honey, There’s a Corpse in the Car

Recently the Wallaces have changed our lives. We bought a new house so my mom and her 4 cats could join The House Of Meankitty. We’ll be traveling to Mom’s actual house frequently, but we’ll spend school weeks here.

Anyway, Mom’s house is in a rural area. Because she hasn’t been driving as much, her car kind of just sat in the driveway, providing a home for field mice, bugs and other critters. They lived…and died…in the perfectly nice car, which then developed a horrible odor that had to be smelled to be described.

We’ve been struggling to deal with the car odor for months. My brother found one dead mouse in a vent, but the odor remained. Now that we’re back in “the big house” due to school starting, we found a car detailing company to come to our house and save us from the smell.

So the car guy is here today trying to find and repeal the source of the horrible carrion odor in my mom’s vehicle. We’re all convinced there just HAVE to be more corpses than just the one, due to the smell. God, the smell! Right now, as I’m typing, I’m making a horrible face just thinking about it.

I had to drive Mom and one of the kids up to the big house in that car — about a 2 hour trip — and the smell worked its way into my pores and I took 3 showers and…

But I don’t want to relive that. The car guy hasn’t found any more corpses in the car. I’m shockingly sad about that. It would have made me feel more confident that the smell was going to disappear.

In other news, did you hear I released a new book yesterday? 🙂 It has a few corpses in it, too. Bad guy corpses.

Moreover, the particular worldbuilding in this science fiction series has established that when daemons (flying red bat monsters) are killed, they smell incredibly bad, which is how you know they’re actually dead. I now know they smell like dead mice shut in a hot car.

Here is a picture of a random cat to make this post prettier and less smelly.

Sex, Booze and Rock and Roll!

Now re-appearing from the depths of history…

Okay, fine, from a few years ago.

Natalie Damschroder, Megan Hart and I wrote interconnected stories about several ladies who have second chance at the night of a lifetime — back stage passes after a concert from their favorite rock band, Blue Silver.

When they were teenagers, it didn’t work out. But now that they’re adults of consenting age…and their teen dream band goes on a reunion tour…everything will be different this time.

Everything.

Hope you like sex, booze and rock and roll, because we sure wrote you some!

Sincerely,

Jody (and Natalie and Megan, even though they don’t know I’m posting this!)
