Hot Work in Fry Pan Gulch
(Honey Beaulieu - Man Hunter)
by Jacquie Rogers
Announcing the cover for Honey's release on March 12, 2016! This series has been percolating in my brain for a long, long time. The original idea file's date stamp is August 16, 1998. That snippet didn't even end up in this book--it'll be in the next book. Honey has undergone a name change, but her character has remained the same. Bits of her has gone into other heroines over the years, but Honey is Honey. Ain't nothin' sweeter.
So why did this take so long to get written? Because it's a genre blend, and utterly unmarketable to the large publishers in 1998. So I traveled a more tried-and-true route. Now, it's time for a bit of Honey. You might say this is a mash-up of Gunsmoke, Sex in the City, and Caspar the Friendly Ghost. I hope you enjoy her.
She's Honey Beaulieu!
Honey Beaulieu grew up in her mama's whorehouse, the Tasty Chicken, which serves up the finest food, whiskey, and women in Wyoming Territory, but Honey takes after her crack shot Pa--and she doesn't back down from anyone or any thing.
Determined not to make her living on her back, Honey does her best to keep the peace in Fry Pan Gulch, but a deputy’s salary won't buy her a home. Once she's adopted by a donkey and then a pickle-eating mule, she sets out to collect a bounty on one of the town's annoyances.
She's got brass
The owlhoot leads her on a dangerous chase. Can Honey persevere despite a wise-cracking ghost who manages to disappear when she needs him, and a handsome U.S. deputy marshal who doesn’t seem at all put off that she’s so scrawny?
