Tortoise Interruptus is Out Today

My light-hearted shifter short story is now out in second edition, and it’s available at 20% off from JMS Books for one week only.

tortoise_interruptus_200x300Cursed by an impatient witch to turn into a tortoise at inopportune moments, Tip is horrified to find himself tortoise-napped by a customer at the cafe where he works.

Things start to look up when Tip ends up very literally in the capable hands of drop-dead gorgeous Steve—but Tip soon begins to wonder just how far he can trust Steve, who turns out to have a close connection with his kidnapper.  Tip’s attempts at a normal life seem doomed to remain frustrated in more ways than one!

Inspired by a real-life incident.  Yes, really.

Available in ebook:  JMS Books | Kobo | Amazon

This story has been re-edited for the second edition, but there have been no substantial changes.

Reviews for the first edition:

delightfully whimsical… The flawless writing and light, satiric tone keep the reader flying through the story, chuckling at the endearingly sweet-natured hero’s mishaps – a Recommended Read by Val Kovalin in Wildfire.

Long on humor, perfect on romance, this short story is a lovely pick-me-up for a sour mood. If Steve and Tip get further adventures, I want to be first in line. 5 marbles – Cryselle’s Craziness

short, sweet, incredibly witty, and laugh out loud funny in parts…The characters are filled with a sense of humor on their own and you can’t help but identify with the cast. They’re just adorable and wonderfully depicted. – Kassa, on Three am.
