Up and Away to Murder: A Comic Book Store Mystery
Odelia "Odie" McFadden is used to being conned into following her best friend, Dee, into trouble. Although she allows Dee to set up her private investigation practice in the spare room of Odie's comic book store, Up and Away Comics, Odie vows to stay out of the investigative affairs and stick to what she knows: comic books.
When Dee's newest case takes an unexpected turn, she ends up with a dead client and becomes a resident at the local intensive care unit. Odie's guilt for not backing up Dee is massive, but her curiosity …
My biggest fan (also my 11 yr old daughter) made this amazing drawing of Amira and Lex. Isn't it the cutest? And it fits the cutesy, cozy vibes of the Lost Souls ParaAgency books so well. It's inspired by the scene where the candle keeps flickering behind Lex's back in the Tea Haven when they first meet. I hope it gives you a smile!
And I just can't hide it! Do I have you singing in your head or out loud now? Good. Mission accomplished. Also, I definitely just showed my age right there. But enough of that and on with the good news.
I recently signed a contract with Sweet Promise Press to write a book in their Funeral Fakers series. These books will be cozy mysteries set in North Carolina. Not paranormal, but just as cutesy and cozy as my Lost Souls ParaAgency series.
What is a Funeral Faker you ask? Here's the description from the site:
Out of work actresses are employed by a Personal Mourning firm within the area to act as bereaved friends/relatives/occasional partners of the deceased during funerals/wakes/memorial services and afterward.
Is that a real thing? Yes. Yes, it is. Here's an article from a real faker who states this is a growing industry in some countries. "I'm a Professional Mourner."
The series will debut in November and there will be six authors in the initial debut from Novem…
It's almost here!! Lost Souls ParaAgency and the Ghostly Reunion will release sometime this week. What's going on with Amira and Lex? Check out the first chapter for a sneak peek. Happy reading! ~Kizzie
One: The Assignment Ghostly
Samuel Chase awaits
After several moments of silence
following the pronouncement, Amira Walker glanced up from her notebook and
stared at the man across the desk. The cream-colored parchment in the
director’s hand exploded into a confetti mist with a muffled poof. From the
colorful mini-explosion and the horrid attempt at rhymes, the personality of
the assigner reminded her of her youngest sister, Ris. Vibrant, explosive,
unpredictable. The pink, blue, purple,
and yellow remnants landed on the desk, and Sparsh raked the paper puddle into
a black wastebasket. He wore a stern expression, a black, tailored three-piece suit,
and a tie with bright yellow pineapples over a rainbow background. The first
Hey happy readers! If you are a member of the LSP Facebook Group or on my newsletter mailing list then you already know that shortly after Lost Souls ParaAgency and the Ghostly Reunion releases at the end of the April, I will also release the first in a series of free short stories from the silly yet fun sidekick, Jordie.
The Jordie Files will show him working on smaller assignments in his quest to become a full-time LSP Agent. I'm having a great time setting him up with his first encounter with SHEEPSQUATCH. Also involved might be some peach cobbler moonshine and a cat that seems to be hiding a mystery of its own.
My research has landed me with some cool links to share:
Such fun!! Again, if you want to ride along with Jordie on his mini-adventures, either join my LSP Facebook Group or my newsletter. They are the only two places these free short stories will be available.
Also - more news on the Three Witches audiobook and Ghos…
Hey, hey! Welcome to the first day of Spring. I hope you are enjoying it where ever you might be. I'm excited to present the blurb for book two of the Lost Souls ParaAgency series, LSP and the Ghostly Reunion. I'd love to have this book up for preorder, but I missed a deadline on another project and Amazon punishes by taking away my preorder privileges. That's my bad. However, I will be announcing a release date soon. So stay tuned!!
