All about Zombies at the Con by Rhavensfyre:

Zombies at the Con by Rhavensfyre

f you are a fan of anything zombie, this is the book for you. Snarky, sarcastic and just campy enough to make it through the gross parts. You won’t want to miss meeting our two reluctant hero’s as they try to escape the Con with a ragbag team of Zombie Hunting Misfits who never expected the Apocalypse to ever actually happen. This is horror comedy with a lesbian twist…and that means you have two badasses in charge and they are taking head counts!

They’re stuck in the Con, and getting out is proving to be more difficult than they expected. All our reluctant adventurers want to do is get home, but it’s not going to be easy.

SO! Join our team of zombie hunters while they sharpen their wits, mow through zombies, and let the sarcasm flow with a sense of humor even the threat of becoming a zombie snack box can’t curtail.

Warning: Graphic details and foul language. Threat of snorting milk or soda out of your nose. May be prone to sudden outbursts of laughter, talking to oneself and a sudden desire to kill zombies.

Hospitals are Hell by Rhavensfyre:

Hospitals are Hell by RhavensfyreFollow our not so reluctant Zombie Hunters on an irreverent and satirical romp through the Zombie Apocalypse. Nothing is sacred, and everyone and everything is fair game when it comes to KL’s blades and even sharper sense of humor.

They already escaped the Con, but not without injury. A quick trip to the hospital is in order, but nothing is ever easy in a Post-Apocalyptic world, especially on day one. KL, Roxy and their crew end up on a rescue mission at the local Catholic Hospital…and you know what that means.

Nuns…Zombie Nuns, and they’ve developed a couple of new bad habits.

This is book 2 of the Series….and like the Apocalypse, we expect this to be a long, messy ride full of twists and turns and a few surprises you won’t want to miss. Carol Ann says you are all invited, and you don’t want to upset that little girl.

The giveaway is over – it ended, September 15th, 2017, but you can get The Misadventures of 2 Reluctant Zombie Hunters: Zombies at the Con and the second book in the series, Hospitals are Hell by Rhavensfyre at the links.

All about Summer of Love by Ashley Quinn:

Summer of Love by Ashley QuinnBrooke Adriani is living the Key West dream. A successful real estate broker, her days are filled with well-heeled clients, sunshine, yoga and a healthy dose of her best friend, Justin. Tragedy early in life may have faltered her ability to get close to others but between that intoxicating island air, an all-knowing hula doll and an otherwise contented existence, who has time for that fairytale love stuff anyway?

After all, her no-nonsense Brooklynite father instilled tangible values in her: Hard work. Business acumen. Professional integrity. In fact, nobody is more surprised than Brooke when her father falls in love with a local woman who couldn’t be more opposite from him. Even more disconcerting than her father head over heels is the gorgeous, spirited daughter of his new love…

Struggling photographer Amber Lucas is devastated after being pushed back into the closet – literally – and discovering that her sort-of girlfriend had a girlfriend all along. Insult is heaped upon injury after being invited to participate in a prestigious photography exhibition – As the administrative assistant. With bruised pride but an optimistic outlook, she takes the opportunity in hopes of leaving her broken heart behind and spending time with her ex-flower child mother. No matter that her mother has fallen in love and seems even dreamier than usual or that her love interest’s daughter is a snob. The last thing she needs is another ice queen.

Brooke and Amber are less than pleased that they’ve been thrown into each other’s lives, but the undeniable chemistry brings all sorts of uncomfortable questions about growing up, coming out and whether two imperfect people can truly overcome their flaws to make the sizzling season their own summer of love. Under the scorching island sun, one thing is for sure – This summer is going to be far from boring.

Keeping Secrets by Penny MickelburySomeone is murdering wealthy, married–and deeply closeted gay people in their own automobiles while parked in deserted parking lots in Washington, DC. Someone the victims allowed into their cars late at night. Someone who knows their most guarded and protected secret. Five murders so far on the same day of the month. Police Lieutenant Gianna Maglione, head of the DC Police Department’s Hate Crimes Unit, has a month to find and stop the killer or she’ll find Body #6. But she has another problem in ace newspaper reporter Mimi Patterson, who thinks the public, especially the gay public, has a right to know that a serial killer is on the prowl.Until Mimi, Gianna had managed to keep the murders a secret. A newspaper story would create a sensation and most likely drive the killer underground. They clash, the reporter and the cop, but only in public. Their private attraction to each other is as dangerous to them as, well, as a serial killer. Secrets=Death, and almost everybody has at least one. Including cops and reporters.

As she uncovers long-buried secrets, someone else is murdered, and Leo realizes that she, too, is in danger. In the midst of her own emotional turmoil, is Leo strong enough and smart enough to confront and catch a clever and ruthless murderer?
