These Boots Were Made for Stomping!

Today is the official release date of "These Boots Were Made for Stomping" - a funny, paranormal, kick butt anthology featuring Julie Kenner, Jade Lee, and yours truly. Each of the stories has to do with an adventure a woman has when ordering a special pair of shoes from www.hiheelia.com. The shoes, you see, give magic powers to their wearers!

Boots Stomping

My particular story, KARMA KITTY GOES TO COMIC CON, takes place at the NYC Comic Con. The heroine, a comic book artist named Hailey, is supposed to go for a booksigning. Little does she know that, while dressing up as her comic book character (a little poke at the RWA costume controversy of last summer!) she would suddenly attain all the comic cat's powers as well. Thank goodness, too, seeing as she has to suddenly do battle with ninjas and convince her ex boyfriend to take her back.

This story was probably the most fun thing I've ever written. I really got to get my geek on!! Julie and Jade's stories are a lot of fun, too. And there's a part two: These Boots Were Made for Strutting - out next month!

One interesting thing - the website where you buy the boots in the story - actually exists! Through a partnership, readers can buy the shoes featured in the stories at http://www.hiheelia.com/. Magic powers, sadly, not included. At least I don't think so!!

You can find These Boots Were Made For Stomping on Amazon.com or a bookstore near you!

Oh and we've gotten great reviews so far. I've pasted some below so you can check them out!
