12.5 humorous stories about sex and the sexes. These sensual yet comic stories offer a fresh take on literary erotic fiction, as if Anaïs Nin and Erma Bombeck met at the library to spin tales of laughter and the libido. Erotic, candid, whimsical, and poignant stories about real-life challenges and their impact on the marriage bed.

What they’re saying about it:

“Jennifer D. Munro had me howling with [her] irony…”–Susie Bright, Best American Erotica Editor

“At turns heartbreaking and hilarious, Jennifer D. Munro’s writing crackles with wit and hard-earned wisdom. Her prose is snappy and eloquent, and often laugh-out-loud funny about the most unfunny things…”--Janna Cawrse Esarey, The Motion Of The Ocean

“I laughed like a little maniac. I just loved it. Hilarious.”–Mary Guterson, Gone To The Dogs and We Are All Fine Here

What they’re saying:
(
“Killer at the Door is a macabre collection of eight short stories, each with either a touch of murder and mayhem. Vickie Britton and Loretta Jackson, sisters who co-author, have put together an awesome collection of short stories. While reading, I felt as if I were being held in a mind puzzle. Is it him? Is it her? Who the heck do you believe? I wanted to yell, “No! Don’t trust him!” or “Run! He’s the murderer!” I never knew who was going to turn out to be the killer. All the short stories are cleverly written by this duo. My only complaint is that I didn’t want them to end!

Thoroughly Modern Monsters by Jennifer Rainey
Type: Short Story Collection
Genre: Contemporary Fantasy
Price: $0.99
Where to Get It:
Amazon (Kindle)
 
 
A love-sick vampire working at a department store.
A confident siren kept from his home by the owner of a traveling carnival.

A famous crime-fighting werewolf reunited with his hostile brother.

The age of the monster under the bed is over! New law integrates all beings considered monsters by the United States government into human society, throwing them into the workforce. As these beings overcome workplace woes, unexpected romance and any personal demons that may have come along for the ride, they discover for better or worse what it means to be a thoroughly modern monster.

Thoroughly Modern Monsters is a collection of seven short stories complete at 21,800 words.

 
What they’re saying about it:
 
“This novella-length book of short stories is outstanding. I suppose Thoroughly Modern Monsters has to be categorized as urban fantasy. Its seven stories are set in an alternate U.S. in which everyone seems to know about “monsters” (gorgons, vampires, werewolves, and so forth) and the “Monster Relocation and Employment Act” has been passed to control their more dangerous tendencies and to make use of their special abilities.”–Amazon Reviewer
