Hey You Guys!!! Author Appreciation Day Is Tomorrow!

Why is it when I say "Hey You Guys", I instantly think of Sloth from The Goonies?

Anyway, tomorrow is the day!  It's the Author Appreciation Blog Hop!  Have you all picked a book or author to give some love to...and a rating/review?

In preparation, I thought I'd share one of my recent reads.  Ok, four, really.  But they're all a part of a series and I totally marathoned them.  Do you like the Sookie Stackhouse novels?  How about Stephanie Plum? If you answered yes, then allow me to introduce you to The Deadwood Mysteries.

Nearly Departed in Deadwood (Deadwood Mystery, #1)Optical Delusions in Deadwood (Deadwood Mystery, #2)Dead Case in Deadwood (Deadwood Mystery, #3)Better Off Dead In Deadwood (Deadwood Mystery # 4) Nearly Departed in Deadwood, Optical Delusions in Deadwood, Undead Case in Deadwood and Better off Dead in Deadwood by Ann Charles.

The books are about a single mom, Violet, who recently moved to the town of Deadwood and is trying to make her career selling real estate...and failing.  As she tries to save her career, she picks up a host of hilarious characters that "help" her.  Harvey, the horny, potty mouthed old man with a shotgun named Bessie, her best friend Natalie, the mysterious and sexy Doc, the disapproving Sheriff Cooper and her coworkers. Violet has the worst luck with clients and with houses and they all seem to involve ghosts, which of course, she doesn't believe in. 

These books are funny, sexy, easy to read and totally addicting.  While Violet's daughter and her coworker Ray are the worst characters (Ray on purpose, Addy just because she's a 10 year old bratty child), I totally enjoy all the colorful characters that make up these stories.

Check them out - the first two are only $.99 on Amazon and are totally worth the read!

So remember to sign up for the Blog Hop if you haven't already and use #huganauthor tomorrow and post some reviews!


  1. Haha, love the video, I thought I was the only one who still did the "Hey you guys" voice like Sloth. Thanks for the series recommendation, sounds like something I'd like for sure.

    1. Sloth is the best! That whole movie is just awesome.

      I hope you enjoy the books!
