Spotlight & Giveaway: FUNNY BUSINESS by Desmond X. Torres

Today we are featuring a new to me author, Desmond X. Torres and his latest book, Funny Business. I can’t wait to read this book as it sounds like a lot of fun!  We are celebrating the release with a spotlight on the book and some giveaways!

About the Book:


Title: Funny Business
Publisher: Monarch Moments
Release Date: October 24, 2013 
Genre:  Romantic Comedy

Official Summary:

Artie’s been carrying a torch for Marie since she first repaired his car at Smitty’s garage. Too bad she hates cops. You could write a novel about it. Actually, Artie did. He even published it online. It’s a little cheesy, but his pen name Desiree Robb is developing a fan base.

Out of the blue, the book takes off, igniting an avalanche of sales. Desiree Robb is approached by a major publisher- they’re offering millions!

But Desiree has to show her pretty face for promotions. Guess who Artie asks to be Desiree?

Marie signs on- for a price. It’s easy money, but things get complicated. Artie’s driving her batty. Or is there something more? During preparations for a live TV broadcast, a sweet romance tentatively begins.

More complications ensue. The mob gets involved. These guys mean business- so what if they still live with their parents? Then there’s the hot for cops VP, a popular talk show, and the FBI. It all fuses into a laugh out loud cluster chaos as tangled as a New York City rush hour.

Available for just 99 cents at Amazon!

About the Author:

Des TorresA former New York City cop, Desmond X. Torres will neither confirm nor deny his ownership of a blonde wig and pink bathrobe.

He always wanted to be an astronaut, but the closest he ever got was being called a space shot.

In his spare time, he enjoys mixed martial arts, motocross racing, and base jumping from tall buildings. He has a great cable TV package. And beer. He loves beer. And nachos. He really loves nachos.

He’d better say he loves K.D. McLean too or she’s going to brain him.

He has been writing since he can remember. It started in primary school. Penmanship has always been important to him – it’s a lost art.

His motto for life is – “I’m going to live forever.” So far, so good.
