#FREE for your Kindle at #Amazon No Lady and Her Tramp by Kristie Leigh Maguire- #RomanticSatire

No Lady and Her Tramp
Download to your Kindle NOW for FREE

One Amazon reviewer of No Lady and Her Tramp stated, "If you like a book filled with sex (Linda Lovelace would have a 'hard' time keeping up), revenge, espionage (trailer park style), gossip (move over Barbara Eden-Harper Valley), feuding neighbors (yeah, Hatfields and McCoys), I guarantee, you will not be disappointed."

Top Ten - Preditors & Editors Poll
A quirky hysterically hilarious read that is down and dirty!

No Lady and Her Tramp will have you rolling in the aisles as you follow the exploits of the residents of President Park, the trailer park to top all trailer parks. When Beth Ann Dixon buys herself a computer and decides to write a steamy erotic novel, her husband, Billy Ray, can't do much of anything right, not even shoot a gun. Janet Higgins is the resident Peeping Tom - and Troy Finkmyer is the guy we all love to hate. Everybody gets into the act and there are showdowns all over Grapevine - Grapevine, Kentucky that is. Shirley Snodgrass is the local gossip columnist for the Grapevine Gazette and records it all in her column, 'I Heard It Through the Grapevine'.  

These two authors, Kristie Leigh Maguire and Mark Haeuser, by putting their talents together, have written a very funny book laced with pure, unadulterated steam.

5.0 out of 5 stars FUN! FUN! FUN!
This review is from: No Lady and Her Tramp (Kindle Edition)
No Lady and Her Tramp

I have read some romance novels that were just "predictable". This book is fun to read, and I had to continue reading. I started the book at 9:00 P.M. last evening and read until I finished it at 4:00 A.M.

I really did enjoy Kristie's book. There were no boring or redundant parts, everything flowed so nicely, that I just had to find out what was going to happen next. I loved the "Grapevine Gazette", and I also identified with poor Mary Jo :(

Well, now I will definitely check out the author's other books! Thanks! That was a fun read.

How I Do It: Melissa Foster Shares Her Top Tips for Self-Publishing Success

What's the secret of your success?

Melissa Foster, bestselling self-published authorI'm afraid there are no secrets, and there is no magic. Although, if there are and I'm missing them, I wish someone would clue me in.
I write fast, and I'm careful about the quality of work that I produce. Quality is the most important aspect of publishing (IMHO), so I don't skimp on the editorial process. I work with a highly skilled developmental editor, a professional copy editor, and three proofreaders.

Author Bio:
Kristie and her husband have lived all over the United States and many foreign countries while following his career.

Have you ever tried to read a cereal box written in Japanese? It was not a pretty picture. Ms. Maguire began writing her own books just to have something to read. She discovered a new passion in writing.
Although Kristie is originally from the South and will always remain Southern at heart, she and her husband live in Nevada. During her expatriate years she lived in St. Croix, Aruba, Thailand, Japan and three times in Saudi Arabia as well as visiting many other countries.
