Well hell fire and little fishes, y’all, today is the day!
You know how the British have those miniseries that are longer than hour television shows, but shorter than a movie? Well that’s how this book is, except there are no British people. There is, however, a Swede, a bitchy botanist, and a lot of Guatemalans, if that helps.
Wait, where am I going with this? Oh, right, so originally I thought this would be one book (as opposed to book one). Then I started outlining, and writing, and forcing my husband to sit patiently and let me bounce ideas off him, and the story grew into a monster. So I had a choice, write a book so long, no one would read it, or break it into a series. I chose option two.
Now, in the interest of full disclosure, Kikki Killmé: Ixcotep is totally different than Human Resources, Martinis, and Other Bad Things. It isn’t women’s fiction, but a mystery-ish story that contains a dollop of supernatural and occult (which plays a larger part in books two and three). It has Mayan ruins, a bad ass archaeologist with a secret past, and a botanist on the look out for a plant that’ll fuck you up. And no, this is not a book about 2012. No lame, written version of a John Cusack movie here, thank you very much.
And most importantly, it’s available on Amazon today – Kikki Killmé, Book One: Ixcotep.
