Poor Abby has the worst luck! TEMPTING THE LIGHT WEEKEND WRITING WARRIORS 2-28-16

Poor Abby has the worst luck!
Set up for excerpt. Abby is in the bathroom at the Expo Center and bought a box of tampons.
  Excerpt:
A girl in white pants jumping rope was printed on the front of the package. Only someone who had never experienced slasher week at panty camp could have thought that one up. She tore off the cellophane and opened the package.
A green fog steamed out of the box and a large green man in billowing pants and gold shoes formed, blocking the exit. She scrambled backward, away from him.
Several noises that didn’t resemble human speech squeaked from her mouth. She ran to the two stalls but both doors were locked. Plastering her back against the furthest wall, she couldn’t breathe. No matter how hard she tried to suck in a breath it wouldn’t hit her lungs.
 One thing she was sure of, this guy wasn’t looking for a urinal.

Tempting The Light Blurb:

Bad luck magnet Abby Fitzpatrick gets fired, catches her boyfriend cheating with a mime, and is cursed by an evil genie who pops out of a tampon box. She’s bound and determined to remove the spell, and as fate would have it, the hottest guy she’s ever met is out to kill her.

River Stone, a Cryptid hunter for Legends and Myths Police Squad (L.A.M.P.S.), poses as sheriff for Abby’s hometown of Haber Cove, New Jersey. He’s out to find and capture a man-eating gnome and bag the legendary Jersey Devil monster. Little does he realize, the woman who catches his heart is the same creature that he was sent to destroy.

Tempting the Light is the first novel in the L.A.M.P.S. series that features hunky secret agents who find true love while hunting and slaying dangerous Cryptids.

Available at Amazon in Spring 2016

  3. This reminds me of an adult version of one of my favorite young persons magic stories, The Toothpaste Genie. I wonder if this genie will be able to do anything right.
