Gavin English isn't in Chicago searching for an unfaithful woman's wedding ring out of the goodness of his heart. He's doing it for the fifty thousand dollar check the unfaithful woman gave him. All he has to do is track down the pretty boy who stole it—in one of the biggest cities in the country.
Lucky for Gavin, ex-police Lieutenant Jack Daniels knows her way around the city—her city—and she's agreed to set aside her mommy duties for a few days, so that she can babysit him and his assistant while they're in town.
But somewhere between Gavin's visit to the busted-down crackhouse and their stop at a low-rent donut shop, Jack's peaceful babysitting gig turns deadly and the bullets start flying.
BABYSITTING MONEY brings together Ken Lindsey's heavy drinking, hard-boiled PI (TO THE BONE, ON THE EDGE) and J.A. Konrath's retired hero cop/brand-new mommy (WHISKEY SOUR, SHAKEN) for an intense, laugh-out-loud thriller.
Babysitting Money is now available for the Kindle, you can get your copy for only $1.99 RIGHT HERE. Writing this with Joe was incredibly fun, and I can't wait to get to the novel we'll be collaborating on soon.
As most of you already know, I have recently pulled my titles from KDP Select and re-listed them at other great vendors like Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, etc. Babysitting Money is no different, and will be available through those other retailers as well, it just so happens that publishing on Amazon is quicker than most other places. I'll keep you updated (if not here, then on my Facebook or Twitter or at KenLindsey.com).
And here's the part where I ask for your help. I know that not everyone out there has the two bucks to spend on an ebook. Whether or not you can buy this thrilling, funny, awesome short story, I would be so grateful if you would help me get the word out. Share the link on your facebooks and twitters and tumblrs, share the blog, retweet the tweets... Whatever you can do to help get the word out will be huge.
Help me show Joe Konrath (who has sold over two million books in his career) that working with n00bs like myself is well worth the time and effort!
As always, thanks for reading,
buh bye then
