Close Encounters of the Sexy Kind



My web-mistress is putting together a new website for me. It won't be up for a while, though. I'm sick of the bright colors on mine---and blue...and the cartoon look. What was I thinking???? LOL I was trying to add that bit of comedy since I put a little humor in every book. Now I'm putting a lot. At least, I hope I'll make people laugh.

Web design: Close Encounters of the Sexy Kind has an alien in it who comes to our planet and we get a glimpse of how she views earth--and the hero. My Sept release, Double Dating With The Dead, has a psychic and a skeptic living in a vacant hotel for two weeks with two sex-starved ghosts. My story in the anthology, The Morgue The Merrier---also coming out in Sept.--- has a dead Elvis impersonator. I'm in another anthology in October and it's a straight contemporary comedy.

So now I have aliens, ghosts and straight contemporary. They're comedies and they're also very sexy. No wonder my web-mistress is going bald. Try fitting that into a web design! LOL I think we've decided on mystical. It'll be a nice change from cartoon.

I'm giving away an arc of Close Encounters of the Sexy Kind (okay, next book gets a shorter title!!!!) to one lucky person who makes a comment---because how else will I put your name in for a drawing--duh!

Hugs,
Karen Kelley

Pam G said...

Hi Karen,

Just read the excerpt for Close Encounters of the Sexy Kind and any one who writes a book with the main character who thinks that "Debbie does the Sheriff" is a documentary is first on my TBR list.

I now how to put your book list on my PDA so I can buy them all. They have to be hilarious.

By the way, I kinda like your website, it's so colorful and funny. I get tired of all the dark colored ones, they're hard to read sometimes.

Thank you for bringing humor into love stories,

Pam G

I like the cover. Congrats on the new book.

LadyVampire2u said...

The cover is beautiful for this book and the story itself sounds fantastic. I always did love comedy mixed with the romance in a paranormal so this is my kind of book. Of course the other books you mentioned are all my kind of books too. I think I just aquired a new 'must have' author for my fav list.

Laurie D. said...

i've never really entertained the idea of man making love to an alien. it looks sick. but reading the reviews, hmmm...i think i'm open to the idea of reading even just one. well, if you have a copy to spare, i'd be very much grateful.

Is Close Encounters of the Sexy Kind a paranormal fantasy book? Or paranormal romance? i'm not sure where it belongs.
