Way back in 2011, I first found out about the existence of that cuddly cryptid, the jackalope, which for the uninitiated is a North American bunny with horns or antlers. (I’d add an image, but non-copyright photos of these elusive critters are hard to find for some reason.)
So of course I had to write a story about it.
Hairy, Horny and Over Here has been out of print for a little while, but it’s back on the virtual shelves now in a brand new cover.
So if you’re looking for a quick, light, paranormal read, why not check it out? And if you buy from the JMS website, it’s at 20% off for a limited time only. Here’s a (rainbow) snippet to whet your appetite:
“Be vewwy, vewwy quiet, we’re hunting—” Ethan broke off as a shotgun, held in a pair of unusually beefy hands, swung toward him and took up position about 3 inches from his left nostril. “Joke, okay?” He swallowed, and tried to ignore the chill tap-dancing down his spine. “Sense of humour failure, much?”
Logan, his heavy black brows casting his dark eyes in even darker shadow, very noticeably didn’t move the gun away.

Local news photographer Ethan is pretty sure there’s no such thing as a jackalope. Every bunny he’s ever seen has been a cute little furry creature, not a dangerous, horned beastie. But somehow he lets big, tough American hunter Logan drag him into Parkhurst Forest on the Isle of Wight on what Ethan’s convinced is a wild goose chase.
Logan’s on a mission to wipe out the jackalope colony he’s convinced has been brought to the island by a madman. He’s got a healthy respect for the vicious critters, which is more than he seems to have for the less physically imposing Ethan.
But when an escaped convict from a nearby prison bursts into the mix, all their plans are thrown awry. Seeing Ethan at the mercy of the violent criminal brings Logan’s true feelings for the smaller guy out into the open—and what happens next could lead to a change of heart about the jackalopes as well!
