Thank you everyone who has been reading and commenting on my blog. I tried to comment on everyone's excerpts. Some I commented late, and some I couldn't find. I'm so sorry. I had to work all day Sunday and I had to finish my final edits for my editor. I promise this Sunday I'll do better. 


About the Excerpt. 
Abby turned into the Jersey Devil the night before and changed back to a human the next morning. She doesn't remember what she did as the Jersey Devil. She is talking to her best friend Pepper about it. Pepper is a big supporting character in this story. I had so much fun writing them. 

Excerpt:

“You can’t remember anything?”
“It’s like that time I drank too many cosmos at Donna’s party and wore panties on my face and draped a sheet over my shoulders for a Superman cape," Abby said.
"You ran around cheering ‘I’m a superhero.’ Then you kissed Johnny stinky pits." Pepper shivered as if the temperature outside dropped twenty degrees.
"I can’t remember any of that night either, but I’m forever haunted by the pictures on social media." She made sure the end phrase held a silent scolding.
You swore you were Cat Woman, and called Carol the Penguin." She waddled around flapping her elbows. "She does resemble a penguin."

Available Spring 2016

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.

      I'm so glad they didn't have social media when I was young.

  2. It sounds as though the only thing she didn't do when she got drunk was wear a lampshade as a hat. Cool snippet.

  6. Haha, great girl-talk. If that's how she acted after a few too many drinks, I have to wonder how bad she was as Jersey devil!

  7. That is the problem with social media. Before, people might forget... but the internet never does! Hopefully she wasn't caught on camera as the Jersey Devil!

  12. Fun and entertaining snippet. I'm a sucker for great back-and-forth dialogue, and this was some good stuff. Sad that she became a social media pariah, though. ;-)

  14. I love the humor in this. And I laughed out loud when I read the blurb for the full novel. It sounds like a fun read.
