Ladybug Lin Reviews Animal Crackers

Elle Druskin’s story made me laugh so hard my sides ached, and split a time or two, and my head grow a bit lightheaded. I also ended up with this goofy smile affixed to my lips that had onlookers wonder about the state of my IQ.


I am delighted to announce that the first LIberty Heights book is out. Animal Crackers is now available through MuseItUp. It will also be sold on Amazon Kindle whenever they get the book on their site–no control over that. Hopefully sooner rather than later. In the meantime, feel free to head over to Muse to read the excerpt. I will get one posted here as soon as I can. Everyone seems to love the cover–what’s not to like or laugh about with that chimp?
I’ve finished the line edits for the second book in the series, The Life of the Party and we are starting work on the third book, Hanky Panky. Will there be a fourth? Yes, I’m just starting to work on it. There’s ALWAYS something going on in Liberty Heights–you just have to love that place!

More on Animal Crackers

I’m getting a lot of feedback on the cover of Animal Crackers and it’s all great—people seem to love the fun tone of it and so do I. As soon as I get the okay from the publishers, I will post an excerpt for you to enjoy. We’re finishing up the second Liberty Heights book, The Life of the Party and the third one, Hanky-Panky, should be out late this year. I hope to get another one done because I just love Liberty Heights! So do my editors which is always good to hear. So what’s Animal Crackers about anyway?

Karma is working overtime. First, Manhattan workaholic Hayley Weaver is fired, then she’s kicked out of her apartment. Hayley needs a job, and fast. Any job. House-sitting a movie star’s home sounds like the answer to her prayers. Too bad nobody told Hayley the house has more critters than the Beverly Hillbillies and even worse, the house is in New Jersey-the one place Hayley swore never to set foot in again. Then there’s local veterinarian Jake Marx who’s desperate to meet a woman he hasn’t known since kindergarten. With Jake on Hayley’s speed dial to corral all the animals, it’s a cinch he’s going to try to corral Hayley too even if everyone in Liberty Heights thinks Hayley is an exotic dancer who should teach their pole dancing class in the fire station.
Animal Crackers and Liberty Heights where anything and everything can happen.

Animal Crackers is coming!

I’ve been pretty busy getting the finishing touches done on the second Liberty Heights book, The Life of the Party but the first one, Animal Crackers should be out in May. I love the cover and think artist Lex Valentine did a great job capturing the tone and all the playfulness of the book, so here it is and thanks Lex!
