Publisher's Summary

This special set includes the first three standalone books in the collection including an extended version of Queen Midas in Reverse.
It's a Marshmallow World (novella).
Once upon a time, Darla was given a mystical gift, along with an ominous message. Now, meeting Chris puts her head in a spin. Could it be that gift from long ago holds the key to their happiness?
Scary Modsters...and Creepy Freaks (novel).
A fantastical romance involving a woman, the music that fuels her, and her Ouija board.
Rosalyn possesses a sunny personality that is laced with quirks. Although she seeks acceptance in a world where she lives out of time, what she gets is ridiculed for her eclectic wardrobe and unconventional music collection.
One fateful night, Rosalyn bewitches Niles, a stylish man whose offbeat character perfectly complements her own. Unfortunately, he possesses a critical flaw that means relationship suicide for him and pretty much anyone.
While under the influence of insomnia-impaired judgment, Rosalyn summons Rock 'n Roll deity Peter Lane back from the dead. Not only does he spin her hormones into a frenzy, Peter is also the precarious puzzle piece that brings sense into her world. When Niles learns that he can overcome his life-long challenge by helping Peter avenge his death, how far will he go to secure Rosalyn's heart?
Queen Midas in Reverse (extended novella).
For Jacqueline, a second date is as rare as a unicorn. She's beautiful. She's intelligent. So why is she experiencing a string of first dates that leaves her ducking behind bushes and running for buses? Contrary to her nature, trading in her heels and curling iron for an easy chair surrounded by cats sounds appealing. Is she cursed, or can she find the man who will steal her heart?

Refreshingly Quirky and FUN...SO FUN!

Would you listen to Pretty Things: The Rock and Roll Fantasy Collection again? Why?

Absofreakinglutely!
This fun group of friends and their stories just melt your heart! How I'd love to find a place like Mulligan's and get my closest group of friends together for a "Cheers" atmosphere of camaraderie and adult beverage. Life is much too serious, so why not have a groovy cool rock and roll fantasy set to read with characters you come to love <3


Who was your favorite character and why?

Hands down, it's Niles. Keep in mind, I'm a product of the sixties, so his funky, eclectic style made me swoon. He's such a gentleman!


Which scene was your favorite?

It was a tearful, heartbreaking moment in Scary Modsters where Rosalyn reveals something from her past. TOTALLY didn't see this coming and I actually teared up.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

In It's A Marshmallow World, I was so moved by the relationship Darla had with her Gram Gram....It's a beautiful relationship and call me sappy, but I was moved by it.

Also, in Scary Modsters, when Rosalyn and Niles finally got together, it was pretty moving and groovy too!


Any additional comments?

I'm a huge fan of Hollie Jackson - this narrator can do absolutely ANYTHING! The voices she gives to Ms. Rinella's quirky characters is pretty darn incredible.

As I said, being a product of the sixties and a huge music lover, I found these stories to be so entertaining and I look forward to more.
