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.
Description of A Tasty Morsel
llie is a spunky woman who talks to herself and verbalizes just about everything that rolls through her mind. 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..

Richard Lutman, author of I Like A Little Bit of the Handsome Americans Myself
I Like A Little Bit Of The Handsome Americans Myself is a quirky road novella set in the early seventies. There is no deep meaning in this novella which took me a month to write. A crucial and very funny pseudo love scene occurs in a Laundromat which inspired the cover. Pacing was important. Most of the action is dialogue-driven so the chapters had to be short.
Richard Lutman lives in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. He has a MFA in Writing from Vermont College. He currently teaches short story classes as part of Coastal Carolina University's Lifelong Learning program. His fiction has appeared in: Verdad, Slow Trains, The Green Silk Journal, Dark Sky Magazine, The Bicycle Review, Epiphany Magazine, The Petigru Review, Deep South Magazine, The Newport Review, Dew on the Kudzu, The Corner Cupboard Press, The Green Briar Review, Bethlehem Writers Roundtable and Prick of the Spindle. He has also won local and national awards for his short stories, nonfiction and screenplays.

T. M. Simmons lives in a haunted house on the edge of the East Texas Piney Woods, which she shares with her husband and a variety of pets and paranormal residents. She delights in scaring herself silly during otherworldly encounters and visits haunted buildings and graveyards during both dark and full moons. Her favorite companion is Aunt Belle, her own personal Aunt Twila, after whom Twila in her Dead Man Mysteries is modeled.

Simmons is extremely willing to discuss her experiences with anyone she can corner. In addition to her Dead Man Mysteries and short stories, she writes about her personal adventures in Ghost Hunting Diary Volumes I through V, with VI in the works. Her latest book, her annual Halloween story and a novella titled Monsters Among Us, is scheduled for release on October 1, 2013.

Janice was born in Guyana, South America and migrated to the USA in 1980. Although her citizenship certificate now reads the United States of America, she considers herself a citizen of the world. Sure she has not physically been around the world and back, but she’s travelled in her mind and dreams.
Janice is an author. She enjoys writing about social issues and personal experiences. Janice’s debut release was entitled Damaged Girls. She uses the three books in that series to detail the effects of different forms of abuse, discussing issues that are known to be taboo. Her latest release, Jumping Ship, is a dedication to her country of birth and an introductory novella to the Island Hopping Series – due out in 2014. It’s poised to be a colorful and emotional experience of life, love and family.
Janice enjoys reading. And is drawn to stories with distinct characters that she can love or hate, characters she can form alliances with or characters that she can swear off and despise. She is also weak for a good cultural tale, preferably in the form of historical fiction. Janice loves to be taken off guard by clever language and settings.
Janice is also a devout supporter and promoter of other authors through social media. She hosts a weekly show, Cultural Cocktails, on the largest social radio network, Blog Talk Radio.
