Coffee and Crushes at the Cat Café: a Furrever Friends Sweet #Romance is just 99 cents at all ebook retailers

Coffee and Crushes at the Cat Café: a Furrever Friends Sweet Romance is only 99 cents and available at all ebook retailers!

Kari doesn’t have time for love when she’s opening her new cat café. She’s busy hiring employees, fighting with the health inspector – oh, and welcoming 16 shelter cats. She’s doing this for the cats, the community, and her family. The café will give her sister, Marley, a job worthy of her baking skills.

Then a tattooed military vet wanders in claiming he’s a master baker. Surely Marley will fall for a guy this sweet.

Colin has other ideas. It’s Kari who makes him want to turn up the heat. But he’s spent the last two years recovering from physical and psychological wounds. Is he really ready for a relationship? He’s not even sure he should commit to Samson, the sweet Siamese cat who steals his heart.

The Furrever Friends Sweet Romance series features the workers and customers at a small-town cat café, and the adorable cats and kittens looking for their forever homes. Each book is a complete story with a happy ending for one couple. 

Readers say: “I absolutely love this heartfelt series.”

I loved this book so much that I purchased the next in the series, and it is just as sweet!”

Pride and Prejudice at The Cat Café: a Furrever Friends Sweet Romance #7

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a fortune should donate to a cat rescue.

Overworked PhD student Liz takes a break at the local cat café with her friend Jade, who wants to start a special needs cat rescue. When Jade pitches her idea to Carl, who is in charge of corporate giving for a rich local family, sparks fly between the two.

Meanwhile, snark flies between Liz and Carl's best friend, William. William seems stuffy and rude, and worst of all, he doesn’t like cats. William is intrigued by Liz even though every one of their interactions seems to go awry, in part due to his terrible cat allergy.

For the sake of their friends and the animals, the two figure out how to get along – until Liz learns some horrible things about William. But is she trusting the right person? Then the feisty kitten Lydia disappears – perhaps stolen – and they have to overcome their differences in order to rescue her.

Readers say: “Really enjoyable story. I love these stories from The Cat Café. Great characters and engaging storyline.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The story is fun and I had several laugh-out-loud moments – really out loud! It also passed the ‘I'm awake in the middle of the night so I'll read test’ because I stayed up for 4-5 hours reading and didn't actually sleep.”

Authors and social media mavens won't want to miss the DepositPhotos deal! #Marketing #indieauthors #selfpublishing #ContentCreator

The Depositphotos deal is back for a limited time! Only $39 for 100 photo/vector downloads from Depositphotos (this never expires). Choose from 270 million+ royalty-free images

Get the deal here.

I've used this for self published book covers as well as social media posts. I find it has a good selection and is much more safe and reliable (in terms of proper licensing) than the completely free places. 

Image from DP
It has both photos and illustrations, and you can search for photos with no people or a certain number of people, and identify the gender, age range, and ethnicity. It also has flat lays – images shot from above with carefully arranged objects like flowers or holiday items, with space in the middle to add your book cover or text.

Now it's added an AI generator, which may or may not be a good thing depending on your current views, but obviously you don't have to use it. I asked if it was possible to exclude AI generated images from the search and got this response: "We do not accept AI-generated images from our authors. So you can feel free to browse the collection. If you have any doubts about any image, you may provide its ID so we can check it with the content team to be 100% sure."

Cover and flat lay images from Depositphotos

This is by far one of the best deals out there for authors or anyone producing a lot of social media! You can even stack it to double or triple the number of images you get and make sure you have enough for years.

Get the deal here this month only.

A #NewRelease alert - An anthology of stories about fallen angels, with Lovecraftian #fantasy and #horror

Fallen

Fall from grace…

In a twist of fate, these angels have done the unforgivable and have been kicked out. Some are left to roam freely while they plot their revenge. Some are immediately given a new job as a form of punishment. Some are even innocent and try to prove it themselves. But can any of them find their new purpose in the end?

Featuring stories by Michael Paige, Matthew Fryer, Bruno Lombardi, Barend Nieuwstraten III, Kelly Barker, A.E. Lowan, C.L. Hart, and J.E. Feldman.

Get Fallen here.

Here's one Story Description for "Of Outer Gods and Fallen Angels":

Gerry Clifford appears to be simply a small, frail older man who has fallen victim to early-onset dementia.

Yadira Root appears to be an impossibly ancient woman who volunteers her time at the care center where people like Gerry live out their final days.

A conversation between the pair reveals unexpected truths about both of them.

The author, C. L. Hart, the owner and sole employee of Naughty Netherworld Press, is spoken of in hushed tones. She is described as The Mad Scribe of the Northeastern Colorado Plains, The Terrible Old Woman, and The Author That Should Not Be.

When not penning sanity-destroying works of dystopian fiction, Lovecraftian fantasy, or old-school horror with the occasional sweet romance thrown in to upset the cosmic apple cart, Ms. Hart enjoys creating baked goods she hopes will be considered palatable.

Ms. Hart shares a home in a remote rural town of 134 souls with her adult son and three cats. Her sense of fashion is best described as Early Twenty-First Century Unmade Bed. This disabled former nurse can usually be found arguing with herself about subplots or rehabilitating eldritch horrors.

Quick Excerpt:

The cat Lydia started winding around William’s ankles. He grimaced, looking as if a stranger was trying to use his shirt as a handkerchief.

“See, she likes you!” Caroline squealed.

“I swear that cat is boy crazy,” Jade said. “She’ll take attention from anyone, but if there’s a man around, she’ll ignore every woman in the room.”

“I’m really more of a dog person,” William muttered.

Well, that explained it. Liz liked dogs too. And cats and rabbits and ferrets and rats. Also monkeys, lemurs, red pandas, tree kangaroos, otters, elephants, dolphins, and just about every other animal.

Except for people. She didn’t always have a high opinion of them.

Liz scooped up Lydia. “I’ll distract her for a while. It looks like your drinks are here.” She jerked her chin toward the door as Dustin came in with a tray.

Lydia squirmed and meowed, wanting to get back to pestering the handsome man. Liz strode to the far side of the room and deposited Lydia on top of a cat tree. “Behave yourself,” Liz muttered. “You don’t want a guy like that anyway. A dogs-only person!”

Lydia sat up and began grooming, ostentatiously ignoring Liz.

Liz huffed out a breath. “Don’t bother making yourself pretty for some man. If he doesn’t adore you at your worst, he’s not worth it.”

“Really enjoyable story. I love these stories from The Cat Cafe. Two different couples take center stage here. Jade and Carl hit it off right from the start. William and Liz have lots of issues to deal with between them. Had fun reading this one. Great characters and engaging storyline.– reader review

“Kris has done a wonderful job providing a suspenseful mystery for the reader to help solve, as well as shared some interesting and quirky characters.” – BookBub reader review

After an injury disrupts her journalism career, Kate Tessler has to start over at 50, figuring out how to get work, make friends, and live in the heart of her loving but interfering family. Now she and her quirky gang of sidekicks have new problems to solve.

Kate’s father and his coffee group are worried. Their friend Larry married a younger woman who now claims he has dementia and won’t let anyone see him. They think his wife and her lazy adult children are keeping him isolated so they can steal his money. They’re determined to save Larry, and they need Kate’s help to prove what’s happening.

Before they can dig out the truth, a murder raises the stakes, and Kate’s father is among the suspects. To save him and Larry, she must reveal the real murderer – but her investigation could put all their lives at risk.

Quick Peek:

“Clarence can drive the getaway vehicle,” I said. “Dad goes to the front door. The rest of us will go around back. Joe can go first and scout out the yard, make sure no one is in back. Arnold and I will follow. Dad, give us a minute to get in position and then ring the doorbell.”

“How long do you think you’ll need to get Larry out?” he asked.

“Five minutes? That will seem like forever to you, but we may need every second.”

We couldn’t see the house well from where we were, but I pictured it in my mind. The front walk led up to an alcove. The front door was set at least five feet back in that alcove. No one at the front door could see the gate opening, but they might hear us if we tried to cross the rocky front yard, especially if Larry was confused and asking questions.

“We’ll stop inside the gate on our way out,” I said. “If you’re still arguing, I’ll call your phone. Make sure Pamela closes the door as you leave. Then we’ll all head for the cars.”

Dad pulled out his phone and tipped his head back so he could study the screen through the lower part of his trifocals. He tapped it a few times and stuck it in his pocket. “All right. I’ll feel it vibrate.”

“We used to have to pay good money for that kind of thing,” Clarence said.

“Clarence, turn the car around now,” I said. “When we come out, pull up to the house next to Larry’s. Stay out of sight of any of Pamela’s windows.”

“I’ll give them the slip!” Clarence said. “We’ll go on the lam. We’ll peach that gold digger and put her in the big house with a pair of silver bracelets.”

“You’ve been watching gangster movies again,” Joe said.

“Right. I always wanted to be a lookout man.”

“Concentrate, people. Everyone know the plan?” I looked at each of them. “Now, let’s kidnap your friend.”

“I love the characters in this series and look forward to reading the next book in the series. The author has a way of pulling you in from the very start and holding your attention until the last words are read.” – Amazon reader review

Something Shady at Sunshine Haven by Kris Bock is a humorous amateur detective mystery: War correspondent Kate Tessler has followed the most dangerous news stories around the world. But can she survive going home?

Injured in a bombing, Kate returns to her hometown in Arizona to recover. An old friend asks her to investigate suspicious deaths at a nursing home – where Kate’s mother is in an Alzheimer’s unit. If Kate can’t uncover the truth, her mother could be next on the killer’s list.

Seeing her mother in an Alzheimer’s unit is the hardest part – until an old friend asks her to investigate suspicious deaths at that nursing home. Is a self-appointed “Angel of Mercy” killing patients to end their suffering? Are family members hastening their inheritance? Is an employee extorting money and removing the witnesses? Kate uses her journalism skills to track clues, but the puzzle pieces simply won’t fit. 

If Kate can’t uncover the truth, her mother could be next on the killer’s list.

Something Shady at Sunshine Haven begins The Accidental Detective series with a charming, at times funny, and at other times intense mystery that quickly grabbed my attention and never let go.” – Keeper Bookshelf blog
