Today I have a new installment in my “Regrettable Books A to Z™” series. For those of you new to my series, this is 100% parody. You are more than welcome to laugh, snicker and guffaw at my amateurish photoshopping and blurb writing. Bad is good. Good is bad.

We’re almost done with Blogging A to Z so I think it’s time for some music.

Y is for yodeling!

First the tagline:

An unbreakable sisterhood or a sibling rivalry inflamed by the lure of fame and fortune? There is no Heeyer, Thayer or Yonder, only now for the Says.

Y4Yodelers-noladyThe blurb:

Heeyer Say dreams of big city bright lights, Broadway and Hollywood. America’s Got Pipes is her ticket out of Dullsville, WY, population Too Few To Stay.

Thayer Say is up every morning before dawn taking care of her chores on the family’s ranch. But the nights are made for singing, loud and clear with the wolves and coyotes of Wyoming.

Yonder Say, the youngest of the sisters wants desperately to keep her family together. With singing the only common bond other than blood, she woos Thayer into joining her and Heeyer as they set out for the auditions in Los Angeles.

The trio hits the road, yodeling down the highway in their rusty old pickup. As one madcap adventure after another takes them on detours teaching them lessons in life, love and laughter, they discover that reaching their destination is not nearly so important as the bonds of sisterhood forged along the way.

But when judges Simon, Brittany and Beyonce state they are only interested in a solo act, will those bonds be strong enough to survive Hollywood’s cruelest cut?

I think this cover’s kind of pretty.

Only one day remaining in A to Z. Can you believe it?

How about a shifter romance?

X is for Xandra, our favorite tiger shifter

First the tagline:

Eeny, meenie, miney, male…she’s got her tigers by the tail, but if she hollers will they let her go? Eeny, meenie, miney, NO!

X4XandrasChoiceThe blurb:

Orphaned in the mountains of Bhutan, Xandra Dorji has always known she was different. She’s not prepared for exactly how different, however. On her eighteenth birthday she wakes up in excruciating pain to discover she’s transformed into a white tiger.

The villagers assume she’s eaten poor Xandra and drive her away. On her own and with no survival skills, Xandra holes up in a cave and prepares to die. She awakens cold and naked and in her human form…only she’s not alone. Three male tigers are circling her, licking their chops. Seconds later, they shift into men and proclaim her to be the prophesied white queen. Each man in turn claims to be her mate.

Xandra wants nothing to do with any of the carrion-breathed heathens, but she knows she’ll perish without them. If she can keep them interested long enough to teach her basic survival skills, the next time she shifts, she’ll be outta there on the Orient Express. Only she underestimates the resourcefulness of her suitors as well as their bossiness. Xandra is one tiger who is not ready to settle down, especially given her choices.

When she unexpectedly goes into heat, mortification isn’t a strong enough word to describe her feelings. The boys are all over her and worse still….she’s feeling the urge to produce a litter of cubs!

But can she put her ambitions in second place to her instincts? And if so, how will she ever choose amongst her tiger suitors?

Eh…kinda lame. Sorry. I’m not a huge shifter story reader so I’m sure I’ve missed the best parody angles altogether. Oh well… at least I wrote you a poem!😀
