Halloween Haunted Houses: A Love/Hate Relationship

Snarkology Halloween Blog Hop 2015

Welcome to the sarcastic sexy suspense stop on the 2015 Snarkology Halloween Hop!

Be sure to stick around until the end of the post for information on a freebie book, a few book giveaways and the massive hop-wide giveaway going on this week.

You know, I’ve never quite understood the allure of the haunted houses that pop up all over the place once October rolls around and pumpkin spice everything is in full swing. I’ve tried multiple times to enjoy them, but…I guess when you’ve lived in an actual haunted house, smoke in mirrors loses much of its appeal.

But the tale of what it was like to live in a 100-year-old Victorian home being restored as a child–and the ghostly encounters that came with it–is really a tale for another day. I mean, the traditional Halloween haunted house really doesn’t have much in common with houses that are truly haunted. Besides, I’ve got a funny haunted house story I’d rather share anyway.

New Release: The Case of the Missing Mascot

Missing Mascot CoverHappy Monday, y’all.

Just wanted to let you know that the first installment of the Sherlock Shakespeare Mystery series is now available AND on sale for half price until the end of July.

In THE CASE OF THE MISSING MASCOT, we meet high school senior Sherlock Shakespeare, a girl who’s spent more time with her nose in a book than she has living her life. All that changes when a massive fight with her boyfriend makes her rethink her life. Armed only with the knowledge from hundreds of mystery books and a few movies, Sherlock sets out to find her school’s missing mascot.

I think what I like most about this paranormal cozy mystery series is that we don’t start out with an amateur detective who magically turns into a seasoned pro the moment they begin their investigation. Instead, Sherlock fumbles through the investigation just like most of us would in real life. Unless my only readers are professional detectives. In that case, I guess I’d be the only terrible one at real life sleuthing.

Anyway. Unlike the novella serials out there that end just when the mystery is really heating up, each novella in this series is a contained story. While the paranormal elements, her friendships and her love life will evolve as the series goes on, Sherlock will solve the primary mystery of the story before you run out of pages to read. Books in this series can be read in any order, but it’s probably more fun to start at the beginning. Not that you have a choice at the moment since only the first one is available. ;)

Also, there is a warning in effect for mild language throughout and one F-bomb.

And now that I’ve rambled enough, here’s the blurb:

When your mascot goes missing a week before Homecoming, this is not the Sherlock you want on the case…

After the disappearance of the new mascot of Devils Reach High, an adorable trained teacup pig, Sherlock Shakespeare finally gets her chance to put the skills learned from a lifetime of reading mysteries to the test. Piece of cake, right? Other than gang members, animal rights activists, hallucinations and the parade of lunatics in her life, she’s totally got this. Champers is as good as found.

In Sherlock’s world, three things are absolute: She’s got the perfect Homecoming date, the stoner in her English class is a total perv, and there’s no such thing as ghosts. Before her sleuthing is done, she’ll learn that nothing is absolute.

Remember, be sure to pick up your copy of THE CASE OF THE MISSING MASCOT by the end of the month to get it for only 99 cents!
