Several years ago, I wrote a humorous paranormal romance novella called A Tasty Morsel. I shopped it around to magazines but never found a home for it.
That was then and this is now! Kindle Direct Publishing empowers authors to publish our own books.

When exploring the cave she recently discovered in an Ozarks nature park, she makes a strangely handsome discovery. He happens to be a vampire who hasn't had a meal in a couple of centuries. And what saves Ellie is her resemblance to his lover. Ellie's day gets more bizarre when she meets a ghoul nurse wearing a lab coat and a doctor whose patients are all undead, mostly dead, werewolves and ban-shees. This lively tale is first in a series of quirky paranormal tales..

I'm so looking forward to talking with author Robbie Cox about his book Reaping the Harvest!
Robbie Cox started writing in high school as a way of escaping the lessons his teachers tried to cram into his head. With the aid of two very determined Literature teachers, he was given the push he needed as well as the guidance to win the Florida Pride Award for both short stories and poetry by his senior year and also helped create the school’s literary magazine, Spindrift. However, it was five years later before he made his first sale, an essay on prayer, to Decision Magazine.
With that milestone, Robbie turned his attention to freelance writing in between his daily jobs and the raising of three boys. While not always able to focus on it as he would have liked, he was able to stay active with his writing and has been published in parenting, religious, retirement, and ghost story magazines. He had also written a Christmas play for local churches and was at one time a contributor to the Good Shephard Ministries Newsletter. Still, he kept working on his novel and short stories.
In September of 2010, he decided to stop dabbling with his writing and began to take it seriously. With the help of three ladies, whom he affectionately refers to as the girls or his editors-in-residence, he launched his blog, The Mess that Is Me.
Living along the Space Coast beaches of Florida with the girls, his 21 year old son, Zac, an 8-year old that demands quite a bit of attention, and two cats, his home is a revolving door of family, friends, and adventures to keep the imagination - and gossip mill- churning. In 2012, he published his free short story, Circle of Justice, on Smashwords, which has received great reviews, and in February of this year, Robbie published his first novella, Reaping the Harvest, also on Smashwords.
Jack is a former English teacher, naval officer, Philadelphia taxi driver, customs officer, and motivational trainer. With the nomination of Echo, his work has been on the final Nebula ballot nine of the last ten years. He won the award in 2007 for Seeker. His first novel, The Hercules Text, was published in the celebrated Ace Specials series, and won the Philip K. Dick Special Award.
In 1991, he received the first $10,000 UPC International Prize for his novella "Ships in the Night." The Engines of God was a finalist for the Arthur C. Clarke Award, and his novella "Time Travelers Never Die" was nominated for both the Hugo and the Nebula.
Omega received the John W. Campbell Memorial Award for best SF novel, 2003. McDevitt's novels frequently raise questions which he does not attempt to answer. He prefers to leave ambiguities to puzzle and intrigue his readers: "Some things are best left to the reader's very able imagination."
McDevitt lives in Georgia with his wife Maureen, where he plays chess, reads mysteries, and eats lunch regularly with his cronies.
And Jack McDevitt will be available at LepreCon 39, May 9-12th. You can find him in panels and the dealers' room during several autograph sessions all weekend.
