Meet the Author

PJ Jones began writing parody in the spring of 2009 when she was seriously ill, thinking that ROMANCE NOVEL would be her last dying legacy for mankind. If you read it, you will probably wonder if she was trying to seal her fate in hell. Who knows? But PJ Jones has conquered her illness and is much better now.PJ Jones is also an avid reader of real romance novels, even the sparkly vampire ones. So why does she poke fun of them? Consider it comic relief.

    Brains!

    Both these short stories involving zombies and vamps were written in PJ Jones typical fashion--funny, witty, and entertaining. Both Melvin, the love-struck zombie and Bethany, the heroine of The Vampire Shoe Warehouse are characters you root for--just don't get too close! Highly recommended for a light humorous read!

    Sense of humor required

    With novels, my reviews tend to max out at 4 as I have only ever gone 5 with my "favorite books ever," but for short stories my standards are different. I am looking for a short read that will be engaging and entertaining in the moment, and the two stories here fit the bill perfectly. Both are hilarious not only on the level of skewering the pretensions of certain genres, but also in the drawing of the characters and situations. Combining those elements is not always easy but Jones does it very well here, mixing bawdy humor and solid story-telling for laughs, with a wink.

    These short stories were a little different from the usual vampire or zombie story. They had a bit of humor. Try this book, you just might like it too.

    No Prudes Allowed!

    I already loved Pj's parody work before this collection, but this is even better. Both stories, Melvin the Dry Cleaning Zombie and Vampire Shoe Warehouse are laugh-out-loud funny and just plain fun. No to mention they both have cute, happy endings :) Crude and rude, yes, so no nasty prudes allowed. I recommend this collection for a good laugh and an upbeat escape!
