Halloween Hi-Jinx

Halloween Hi-Jinx by Annee Jones: Author Interview, Tour, and Giveaway with Celebrate Lit.

About the Book

Book: Halloween Hi-Jinx

Author: Annee Jones

Genre: Clean Cozy Mystery

Release date: October 14, 2022

Jinx the cat has a bad reputation for always being in the wrong place at the wrong time – and this Halloween turns out to be no different….

His former owners called him “Cursed” – blamed him for their troubles that began occurring after they got him, which is reason he was turned back into the shelter.  But Clarissa Lightfoot, owner of the new Cat Café doesn’t believe it and wants to help clear his name, so she brings him to the new café (doubling as a halfway house for homeless animals).  – There’s no such thing as a Cursed Cat…. Or is there???

The Cat Café is hosting a costume party fundraiser for Halloween to help homeless animals.  After the party, it’s discovered that someone stole $$ from the cash register, and Clarissa is implicated in the crime.

Someone wants her & her new café to go “Poof” and disappear – but who & why?

Can Jinx – along with handsome police officer Cody Shelton – help discover who’s playing tricks on Clarissa this Halloween?

Author Interview:

What was the highlight of writing this book?

The highlight of writing this book was by far the animal characters! I had so much fun
writing them!

Are you working on your next book already? What can you tell us?

Yes, I have book contracts right now through 2027! Right now I’m finishing writing a
historical romance set during the late 19 th century. It’s equal parts romance, suspense, and mystery and will be released the end of September!

What famous author do you wish could be your mentor?

What famous author do I wish could be my mentor? Isak Dinesen. Her short stories are
the most beautiful tales I’ve ever read. I’d also choose J.R.R. Tolkien, Poe, Dickens, &
Joseph Conrad, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, Agatha Christie. I love
the classics.

What’s your favorite writing snack?

Favorite snack – usually something hot to drink (I like to make creative concoctions such
as strawberry Crystal Light or green tea with French vanilla creamer heated extra-hot

Do you write in one genre or several?

I write in several genres:
Mystery: cozy, romantic suspense, thriller
Romance: American historical, contemporary, paranormal
Fantasy: Fairytale retellings, YA fantasy

What genre would you choose to write that you don’t already?

If I could choose to write in another genre, I’d love to add Regency to my list of
historical romances, and I’d also love to write Amish romance.
