Ghosts, Braille and Lasagna

My newest book, which launches Sept 6th, is the ongoing story of a woman who's lost her sight and just might lose her business if she doesn't think of something fast.
Bryndle Moody is a paranormal investigator with a Youtube show and thousands of followers who are waiting for her next show. But, having not only lost her sight in a car accident but losing her new husband, has Bryndle grieving and consequently unable to access her clairvoyance or abilities to reach ghosts, something that defines who she is.
In accepting  she's now blind, Bryn must learn to use a white cane as well as her braille watch and practice listening, instead of relying on sight. Cooking is something she longs to do but is unsure how to go about it. In the book, she makes dinner and I've included her lasagna recipe in the back matter of the upload. Yummy!

The first book has Bryn inheriting a house months after the accident and that mysterious incident leads her to take action to try to get her "super power" back. But, it's not as easy as it might seem and things look bleak until a strange entity enters her life.

The book is on presale everywhere, is a 3 hour read and only 99 cents!
I'm now busy writing the second one which will be available in early October for 99 cents.

I wrote the book with lightness, humor and ghostly apparitions. If ghosts intrigue you, like me, you might enjoy this book that follows the life of a medium who speaks to ghosts.

Happy Reading!

Kindle Worlds Dissolves Tonight!

Hundreds of books will cease to be tonight when Amazon closes Kindle Worlds, the imprint that promoted fan fiction.
With over 40 worlds to choose from, there was a lot of variety and talent from established authors hoping to network broader into the fan base of more successful authors. Some KW authors were NYTimes Bestselling authors themselves, writing for friends, fine-tuning their pen on another genre.
I wrote ROCK BLUFF for the Lei Crime World by Toby Neal. I loved this book and have plans to rewrite it soon, taking out all characters and locations that belong to Toby.
It will still be called Rocky Bluff and have the same cover, but the story will be different.
I wanted to preserve all my wonderful reviews which will also disappear into obscurity and decided this morning to post them here. Thank you everyone for reading and reviewing. I appreciate your support more than I can say.

Rocky Bluff

A death at the Historic Iao Theater on Maui has detective Lei Texeira going under cover in the cast of The Rocky Horror Show. 

Detective Lei Texeira has just moved to Maui from Kauai with boyfriend Michael Stevens when they witness a tragic accident during a performance of The Rocky Horror Show at the local theater. A closer look suggests murder. Stevens is assigned the case but Lei can't keep her nose and her theories out of his investigation especially when she realizes that her new running partner and friend, Kali, might have been the ultimate target.
Lei goes undercover in the bizarre theatrical rendition of a narcissistic transsexual and his band of weirdos, but soon finds herself a target as well.
When Kali's tragic past catches up with her, Lei and Stevens struggle to apprehend a clever killer who stays steps ahead of the police in this game of terror. It isn't until the Iao Theater ghost intervenes and Lei finds herself conspiring with a dead woman that final clues fit together to form a bizarre mosaic of treachery.

Although it's not necessary to read the Lei Crime Series to enjoy Rocky Bluff, Kim highly recommends the Bestselling Police Procedural books by Award-Winning Toby Neal.
Rocky Bluff takes place between TORCH GINGER and BLACK JASMINE and includes a yummy and sugary RECIPE for Malasadas (Portuguese Donuts)
Toby Neal, the USA Today Bestselling Author of the Lei Crime Series calls ROCKY BLUFF "A Twisty, Fun Mystery!"

Kim Hornsby's story kept me on the edge of my seat. I love these 
K W books! Gives an interesting twist to Toby Neal's books without 
diluting the characters. Can't wait to read more by Ms Hornsby.

Great story... interesting twists, well worthy of being included in the
 Lei Crimes Series. In fact I thoroughly enjoyed all of this series, and 
will investigate other Kindle series in the future.

This is a great Lei Novella that not only stays true to the series,
 it adds a new element to the stories with Kim's addition. I eagerly await the next Bluff!

Rocky Bluff is the first time I have read Kim Hornsby’s work. 
Crime fiction is not my genre of choice to read but I was enticed 
by the synopsis and gave it a try. I wasn’t sure what to expect but 
it didn’t take long to get hooked into the story. Once I started reading it, 
I couldn’t put it down and when I did, I couldn’t wait to get back to it. 
I read it in two sittings.

This novel is beautifully-written. Hornsby’s writing flows seamlessly 

through a fast-paced plot with many twists and turns that kept the 
suspense and tension high. Her characters are well-developed--
believable and multidimensional --and her ability to show conflict kept 
me fully engaged throughout the story. The surprise ending left me 
reeling.

Hornsby delivers in this riveting and suspenseful crime drama which

 left me wanting to read more of her work.
