New Release Reviews ~ The Muffin Man by Kim Fielding 

The Muffin Man by Kim Fielding 

 Goodreads | Amazon

 

Morli is a prince on a mission—but he’d rather be baking.

Baxter is a lonely production artist stuck in a pandemic lockdown.

They are literally universes apart. But with a little help from a magic shop, a raven, and a dead great-aunt who was possibly a witch, Morli and Baxter are joined together on a cross-worlds adventure. Battling killer brambles in order to rescue an enchanted princess seems simple compared to their real challenges: discovering their strengths and creating a future together.

The Muffin Man is part of the Magic Emporium Series. Each book stands alone, but each one features an appearance by Marden’s Magic Emporium, a shop that can appear anywhere, but only once and only when someone is in dire need. This book contains reluctant heroes, sentient sourdough starter, lots of carbs (with some recipes!), and a guaranteed HEA.

Kim Fielding has a new MM historical paranormal mystery coming out in the “Bureau” series: “Conned.” And we have the cover reveal!

World War I veteran Thomas Donne is new to San Francisco. Always a stoic man, shell shock and a lost love have nearly turned his heart to stone. No matter—a private eye has no room for softness. Almost broke, he takes on what appears to be a simple case: finding a missing young man.

As a magician and medium, Abraham Ferencz cons his audiences into believing he can cheat death and commune with their dearly departed. Although his séances are staged, the spirits are very real, and they’ve brought him almost more pain than he can bear.

When Donne’s case becomes complicated and the bodies start to pile up, he and Ferencz must fight their way through a web of trickery and lies. The truth is obscured by the San Francisco fog, and in their uncanny world, anyone can catch a bullet.

Blog Tour ~ Convicted (The Bureau Series) by Kim Fielding (Review + Giveaway)

Convicted - Kim Fielding

Kim Fielding has a new MM paranormal book in her “The Bureau” series out – “Convicted.”

Vietnam veteran Kurt Powell’s addiction almost cost him everything, but a job as federal agent with the Bureau of Trans-Species Affairs helped him find sobriety and purpose. Now he tracks down dangerous paranormal creatures as well as humans who abuse their magical powers in illegal ways.

Sent from Belfast to the United States as a boy, Desmond Hughes later fell into a disastrous relationship that led to horrific murders. He’s spent seventeen years in a bleak prison with few comforts and no hope of release.

A new mission throws Kurt and Des together in a desperate attempt to prevent disaster. Sometimes what’s long been lost can still be found, but the road to redemption is never easy—and a mutual attraction may not ease the way.

Series Blurb:

For many years the United States government has been aware that Homo sapiens is not the only sentient species inhabiting the country. Some other species were native to the continent, while others immigrated along with humans. Early on, these nonhuman species (NHS) were largely ignored when they lived peacefully within human communities. At other times they were deemed a threat and local efforts were made to eradicate them. The federal government was not involved in these early efforts.

By the early 20th century, some local law enforcement agencies expressed frustration with their inability to deal effectively with the special needs of NHS. Localized incidents of mass violence occurred in several locations, most notably the Omaha Zombie Epidemic of 1908, the Manchester (New Hampshire) Melusine Drownings of 1911, and the Eugene (Oregon) Sasquatch Riots of 1915.

In response to these incidents, as well as a heightened desire for increased federal control, President Wilson created a new federal agency in 1919 called the Bureau of Trans-Species Affairs. The mission of this agency was to communicate with NHS, to control them, to investigate reported dangerous actions committed by them, and to bring them to justice or eliminate them when necessary. Since then, the Bureau has been quietly active throughout the United States. Its jurisdiction has expanded to include humans who engage in magical or paranormal activities.

Over the decades, a great many dramas have unfolded among the people who work for the Bureau. The Bureau stories are a collection of these tales. Each involves different protagonists and is set in a different era, yet all focus on the adventures and struggles of the Bureau’s agents. These novellas can be read in any order.

Blog Tour: Redesigning Landry Bishop by Kim Fielding (Guest Post + Excerpt + Giveaway)

Hi, this is Kim Fielding. I’m here to share the top 5 things I loved about writing my new book, Redesigning Landry Bishop.

  1. Researching Hollywood Hills houses. I began my work for this book researching houses in the Hollywood Hills, which is where Landry Bishop lives. I wanted to make his home as realistic as possible. My own living arrangements are decidedly more modest, but it was great fun to see how the other half lives. In case you are wondering, Landry has a lovely midcentury modern home with a pool house and a view.
  2. Research Martha Stewarty stuff. Landry is sort of a Martha Stewart type. He writes and appears on TV shows with advice on crafts, décor, clothing, and food. As I was working on the book, I spent a lot of time thinking about what kinds of projects Landry might work on and what recommendations he’d make to his fans. This meant spending a lot of time on lifestyle blogs. Just as I don’t live in an LA mansion, I’m not exactly renowned for my fashion sense or innovative ideas on decorating. But it sure is a lot of fun to dream.
  3. The ridiculous meal. One of the scenes takes place in a (fictional) pretentious restaurant—the kind that serves beautifully plated weird foods in minuscule portions. It’s the kind of place Landry is used to, but not his new personal assistant, Jordan. And Jordan isn’t the type to remain silent when he finds something funny. I had great fun writing this scene.
  4. Watching Landry loosen up. When the book begins, Landry is a workaholic who keeps himself on a pretty tight leash. Although he knows how uptight he can be, he’s not sure what to do about it. Jordan, however, is a good influence, helping Landry gradually loosen up and become more comfortable with his true self. My characters feel very real to me, so I enjoyed seeing Landry go through this process.
  5. Elaine and Aunt Trudy. I really love writing secondary characters, and these two are among my favorites. Elaine is Landry’s PA, a blunt-talking, forceful woman—now about to retire—who’s been steering Landry on the right path for years. Speaking of steering, I especially love Elaine when she’s navigating Los Angeles traffic. Trudy is Landry’s aunt, the matriarch of a family that’s been in a small Nebraska town for generations. She’s a hard woman to say no to—and she has some secret plans that involve Landry. That means he’s going to have to return to his hometown for the first time in years, where he’ll face some truths about himself and his future.
