Vicki Batman & 'Temporarily Insane' @VickiBatman @GoddessFish #RomCom #Mystery

Today we have author Vicki Batman visiting. Welcome!

What would you like to tell readers about yourself?
* Award-winning author, Vicki Batman, has sold many romantic comedy works to the True magazines, several publishers, and most recently, a romantic comedy mystery to The Wild Rose Press. She is a member of Romance Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, and several writing groups. An avid Jazzerciser. Handbag lover. Mahjong player. Yoga practitioner. Movie fan. Book devourer. Cat fancier. Best Mom ever. And adores Handsome Hubby. Most days begin with her hands set to the keyboard and thinking "What if??"

A look into...
~ Blurb ~
* No man. Bad job. And Murder. Hattie Cooks is still searching for her dream job and one might be available...in the Big Apple, far from friends, family, and Allan Wellborn, the man who still makes her heart race. In the meantime, she finds temporary employment at an accounting firm where two auditor friends turn up dead.
* Detective Allan Wellborn dropped Hattie for Blonde Bimbo who, coincidentally, is employed at NLB where fishy things are taking place. When Allan interviews Hattie, he must determine why all signs point to her as a suspect.
* Can Hattie discover why Allan dumped her and who is murdering auditors before death strikes again?
~ Excerpt ~
* His legs were kinda knobby in knee socks. What could be underneath? He was sorta on the thin side. So maybe, they were skinny? However, if he wanted to meet girls, his geeky socks had to go. “Stuart, the look you’re sporting is from the fifties. I’m telling you girls don’t go for guys wearing socks with sandals.”
* Stuart scratched the side of his nose while considering what I’d said. “Okay.” He sat on the threshold step and took off the sandals, then the socks.
* I leaned over to watch. He was right—Stuart had ugly legs. Ugly. Scrawny. Very gorilla-hairy legs. Yet firm calves. I shuddered. If his legs were like this, what…
* Don’t go there. Don’t go there.

Is there a book by an author you respect and admire that you wish you had written yourself? If so, what is it?

Bea LaRocca said...

Good Morning! and thank you for having me blog with you today and share one of my favorite excerpts about geeky Stuart Steems from Temporarily Insane. Did I make you laugh?

Hi, Lisa! So glad you are up and ready this fine Monday Morning!

Hi, Clojo!I so admire Dick Francis' books that many years ago, I admitted to Handsome how I wanted to write like him. BUT I have a huge place in my heart for Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. In fact, I have a first edition.

Hi, Bea! You are so welcome. It's a big tour and I'm hoping to make lots of new friends like you!! I'd love for you to read TI and let me know what you think. Hugs!

Hi, Victoria! You've read several excerpts from Temporarily Insane. Which was your favorite?

Melissa Keir said...

Gotta love a man like Stuart! He's been hiding the legs for so long...

I do like a man who can show his legs off in a nice pair of shorts. :) All the best!

"gorilla-hairy legs" -- I did always think King Kong was kinda sweet (smile!).

vicki batman said...

Hi, Melissa! I love the knee socks part. I laugh every time I read them. Wait until you read WHY his calves are firm. LOLOL

Hi, Angela! Well, the gorilla did have a sweet spot for the girl. And he was allowed to have hairy legs. LOL
