After writing Felix Ingesson for the Chaos Station series, I’ve found myself reluctant to go to dark places with my characters. It’s not that I’ve lost my Evil Author (TM) badge, or run out of ideas for how to torture my guys. More, I want to explore the lighter side for a while – and that’s definitely what happens in Best in Show. It’s a paranormal tale, but there is no shuffling among the egos of a pack, midnight neck-chewing or fated mates who can never be together. There is a curse, though! And some magic, and a mystery. And two really sweet guys who are both stuck in place – each needing a gentle nudge from fate in order to find something and someone they can care for.
Best in Show releases today and I’ve included it in my tour for Counting Fence Posts. Two books, one tour. Follow along for posts about both books, including character interviews, playlists, excerpts, a recipe and more. Details below. I also have a giveaway! Enter here for a chance to win two of my backlist titles from Dreamspinner Press and a $25 store credit.
Solitary mystery writer Julian Wilkes doesn’t want a pet, but his sister persuades him to visit Lingwood Animal Rescue, where he is immediately taken with a large ginger tabby cat. Before he can settle into the joys of cat ownership, however, he discovers something very unusual about his new companion.
Macavity Birch is cursed. By day he is a large tabby cat. At night he can be himself—a human male with ginger hair and oddly yellow eyes. He didn’t mean to end up in the animal rescue, but he never meant any harm when playing the prank that resulted in his curse, either. Happily, Julian adopts him. But while exploring his host’s home, he discovers the diary of a long-dead relative.
Unfortunately, not all of Mac’s ancestors are dead and buried. His great-great-great-grandmother is very much alive, and she’s a powerful witch who doesn’t take kindly to the sharing of family secrets. When Mac reveals himself to Julian in order to save him from bigger trouble, he achieves just the opposite, plunging Julian deeper into a magical mystery with him.
