The Character of Greg... (Book #5, Knitting in the City)

I just posted this to my author page on Facebook... ***GREG IS OFFENSIVE***
But I feel like I should warn those of you who have pre-ordered the 'Scenes From the City' novella/short stories, Fiona and Greg's "origin story" will be the last one in this collection and...
:-|   <--- this is my serious face

In this short story (from 'Scenes from the City') he makes jokes about:
1) Sexism
2) Pedophilia
3) Bestiality
4) Other various and sundry sensitive topics

In their full length novel (Happily Ever Ninja), he will likely say terrible things about:
1. Men, women, children, the elderly, babies, dead people
2. Endangered Species
3. All political affiliations
4. All ethnicities
5. The handicapped
6. Nerds, jocks, goths, and all social labels
7. Rich people and poor people and the middle class
8. Catholics (and other Christians), Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, and all other religions as well as Atheists, Wicca, and Agnostics
9. Basically, he will make fun of EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING.
This is his character. This is who he is... so I'm warning you now.

This is where I leave you... for awhile.

Every so often, I go into the writing cave. This is one of those times; although this time might last for longer than is typical. I have the imaginary people talking to me non-stop and they will not ignored! I also have 3 books to write... O.o

Therefore, I've asked Fiona to take over my social media postings for a bit.

If you need to reach me, the best way will be to email Fiona (because she'll make sure I see the message ;-) ) fionuhfischerATgmailDOTcom

Festivus Surprise (aka Scenes from the City) is up for pre-order on Amazon

Festivus surprise is live on Amazon for pre-order, people!

**Some background information** I decided last year that I wanted to give my readers a "gift" for all their amazing support and love for the Knitting in the City ladies; but I struggled with how to do this/the method of gift delivery.
**The plan** I don't want to give too much away, so I'll just tell you the following:
1) Some of you love all the ladies equally, some of you have favorites. I didn't want any of the ladies/readers to be left out, so I decided to write *something* for all the ladies who have already had a book PLUS something for Fiona and Greg... because their book will be next.
2) This Festivus Surprise is $0.99 cents because I can't make it free on Amazon without enrolling in KDP select; if I enroll in KDP select, then my Kobo, iTunes, and B&N readers will not be able to download it.
3) I still wanted it to be a "gift" so I decided to give the $0.35 per book away to a charity. So... it may be a gift that costs you $0.99, but all of my portion will go to giving children gifts for Christmas/ Hanukkah, etc.
4) In essence, I'm giving a gift to you and you're giving a gift to some kids someplace. #WinWin

ALSO! This "gift" of a novella/collection of short scenes will go live December 1 and only be available until December 15. After that it goes away forever. Just... FYI.

Happy Festivus! Feel free to air your grievances at will.

I've decided something...

I've decided something...
The Winston Brothers Books will be likely be similar in tone to BEAUTY AND THE MUSTACHE. A bit more serious, a lot more romantic. I really enjoyed creating a modern world where chivalry, grand gestures, and real-life troubles wove together. I love these guys.

So. Yeah.<3 Penny
