My Alter Ego's Rom-Com Funny Fest Is On Sale!

What a darling surprise! Amazon picked us as a BIG DEAL book with an associated promotion that will run until March 30. What does that mean for you? For less than a buck, you get a book that will make you giggle, guffaw, and question your need for Sriracha in the bedroom. (Don’t do it.)


Tell your friends! Tell your coworkers! Don’t tell your kids. There are naughty bits in this one. Not really naughty, but it might be weird to explain “panty tarantula” to your middle schooler.

A book for a buck minus one penny is a sweet deal, although if you're in Canada, you don't get that penny back because we don't have pennies anymore. They killed them.

In case you want to know WHAT Must Love Otters is before you click through, here's the summary:

Hollie Porter is the chairwoman of Generation Disillusioned: at twenty-five years old, she’s saddled with a job she hates, a boyfriend who’s all wrong for her, and a vexing inability to say no. She’s already near her breaking point, so when one caller too many kicks the bucket during Hollie’s 911 shift, she cashes in the Sweethearts’ Spa & Stay gift certificate from her dad and heads to Revelation Cove, British Columbia. One caveat: she’s going solo. Any sweethearts will have to be found on site.

Hollie hopes to find her beloved otters in the wilds of the Great White North, but instead she’s providing comic relief for staff and guests alike. Even Concierge Ryan, a former NHL star with bad knees and broken dreams, can’t stop her from stumbling from one (mis)adventure to another. Just when Hollie starts to think that a change of venue doesn’t mean a change in circumstances, the island works its charm and she starts to think she might have found the rejuvenation she so desperately desires. But then an uninvited guest crashes the party, forcing her to step out of the discomfort zone where she dwells and save the day … and maybe even herself in the process.
 Reviews have been fantastic. But don't take my word for it. Have a go for yourself.

And send your cookie recipes.


  1. I bought this book for 99 cents yesterday. I stayed up until 2:30 am this morning to finish it. When I started the book, I didn't think I was going to like it. Hollie was in a bad place in her life. Stuck, depressed. But I kept reading and was sucked right in to her transformation. Her sweetness, her gullibility, her growth. By the end I was cheering and crying. I think every twenty-something should read this. I saw my life in your words - I too had a Prince Charming, but had to come to my own decisions about this one life we get to live. Please, please, keep writing happy endings. This was wonderful.

  2. Kathy, this is an AWESOME thing to read. THANK YOU SO MUCH. I'm thrilled that you saw that Hollie wasn't just feeling sorry for herself -- she had to be somewhere dark to find the light again. Most of us have been there, and if we haven't, we will eventually. It's how we grow, right? It's wondrous affirmation for me as a writer, and a person, to hear that you saw something of yourself in this story. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    I'm thrilled that you found me. Make sure to stop by and sign up for our newsletter so you can receive early notification about future projects. And I'm with you -- I like the happy endings. Way more fun than the alternative ...

    Keep in touch!
