Dream Catcher Failure Was Never An Option

Dream Catcher Failure Was Never An Option


I know that like me many of you are wandering around stories – click on sites and thumbing through catalogs looking for that special gift for the person who has everything. Well, I have the answer to your dilemma – order them an audiobook. That’s right audiobook.

My readers asked and it happened. Now is the time to spread the word. There are currently three out and two more will be released early next year. However, you can get in on the early ordering now. This is the perfect gift one that you can give over and over – With all of the electronic devices out there one can listen to books on just about anything, computers, iphones, ipads and tablets. You are not limited to just vehicles anymore. Think of it do you know someone who can no longer read the written word for health reasons, loss of eyesite, had hands, etc. Well, this is perfect, get them lost in an audio book. Get a device, a headset and turn them lose.
Why should anyone who loves stories be deprived of the written word.
All of my books are downloadable as well as on disc so there is no reason for you not to get them. Yes, they are even on itunes. Dreamcatcher is even listed in the enhanced versions so the listener can see the photos that are provided in the book.

Why make the silly season any harder than it already is? You don’t have to leave your home, you can let your fingers do the walking and you are giving a gift that someone can enjoy over and over again.
Think about this – do you know someone who is in the hospital taking Chemo or radiation and has to spend hours hooked up to a machine. It is very hard to hold a book while allowing the meds to drip through ones body. An audio book is the answer. It shuts out the noise of the room and allows the patient to lose themselves in a book. What about someone who is having dental work done. We all hate going to the dentist. Download a book plug in the headset and sail away.
As we all know hospitals are boring places to be. Audio books can take that person anyplace they want to go. On an airplane? No problem audio books – headsets and good to go. Long car trip same thing. Plug in and sail away.
So what is stopping you? Order today.

In “The Pink Canary” Yvonne Mason, whose previous BFV titles include “A Voice from the Grave” and “Dream Catcher: Failure Was Not An Option,” takes the listener into the Drag Queen world of mascara and stiletto heels mixed in with murder, mayhem and comedy.

“The Pink Canary” is seen through the eyes of Lou, a mild mannered detective by day, aka Lola, a fabulous drag queen and proprietor of The Pink Canary, the hottest “Drag Queen” club in Key West by night. Ensuring authenticity, Yvonne Mason recruited the assistance of Vicky Lane. “I have been a Drag Queen for over 40 years and this is the first time I have been asked to collaborate on a book,” said Vicky. “Drag Queens are my specialty and I have worked in Cabaret shows since 1968 as well as extensively in musical theater, television, radio and films. I was really excited and honored to help with the book and this book was an ultimate thrill for me. Thanks to Yvonne Mason for her faith in me.”

The Pink Canary Just Keeps on Getting Five Star Reviews The Ladies Thank You

When I started this little jewel I had no idea where it would take me. Like all of my books, they take on a life of their own as the voices of the characters take over the story. Who would have thought that when I started the research of drag queens that I would learn so much and would have so much fun. I could not have done it without the one and only Vicky Lane who performed for many years in New York and Canada. She led me into the world of drag queens – their culture their quirks and their drama. And that brings in my sweet and best friend friend Peter aka Penelope who played a major role in the story. All of this brings me to the current review. When someone says they laughed out loud while reading the book and stayed up nights just to see where the story was going- it makes me proud. It means they were as the reviewer said “Entertained” If you haven’t gotten it you should. You will not regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn’t put it down! October 9, 2013

I was waiting for this release since I first heard about it. It definitely lived up to the hype! I stayed up late several nights just to finish it because I needed to know what was going to happen! There are several times I was laughing out loud, and I also loved how descriptive the author is. Overall a very entertaining read.

The Pink Canary Just Received a Five Star Review

I was promoting my books and saw this wonderful review that was posted at the end of September I love this review!!!!

The Pink Canary

The Pink Canary

5.0 out of 5 stars A very witty book, I just started it and I love it. September 20, 2013
By frosty7530
Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified Purchase
I have not gotten far, but this is the book I’ve been longing for. I love gay cabaret, the setting of the book is in the drag queen subculture of Key West, the story takes place in a gay nightclub. I’ve always been fascinated by Key West,the location of the story. I know this is one book that will keep me entertained. The author allowed that there was a real murder that occurred in a gay, NYC nightclub, that inspired her. It remains to be seen if this is a variant of a “roman a clef”.
This book is for lovers of RuPaul, Harvey Firestein and Armested Maupin’s Tales of the City. There have been so many serious issues in the gay communities of all our cities, as well as our nation as a whole; it’s time to get laid back and enjoy a good dramedy.

Soon You Will be Able to Take The Pink Canary with You

That’s right you heard it here. The Pink Canary is in audio production. Soon you will be able to carry Lola, Penelope and Vicky with you as yo go running, driving, traveling or whatever you do when you are out. The Pink Canary in all of her Pinkness is currently being produced by Brook Forest Voices. They have produced two of my other books Dream Catcher Failure was Never an Option and A Voice From the Grave.

The Pink Canary

The Pink Canary

If you haven’t yet read The Pink Canary you are missing out.

“There are bodies piling up in Key West…. Serial Killer? The bodies showing up outside a famous drag bar….is that a clue or a coincidence? A book that delves into the Life of a Drag Queen and a marvelous “Who done it?” Clever! Let’s go into their world of Mascara and Stiletto Heels and observe. Who could be killing all these gay men and why?

Yvonne Mason is the master, or mistress, of mystery in this rip roaring, fishnet stocking twisiting comedy mystery tale. This story could very well could have really happened as Yvonne Mason connects this story with some undisputed truth and history of NYC underworld and the “World Famous 82 Club”… it just might have happened, see for yourself…

The local detectives and cops go on a case that has been haunting the head detective and the main character since their days in the Big Apple. Does the detective has a love/hate relationship with the Drag Queen or is it a lot less Hate and more Love than admitted? Exciting and Hilarious! Who will be next on the list of murder?

The story is as seen through the main character’s eyes and what eyes they are! Lou the mild mannered detective by day and Lola a FABULOUS drag queen by night who can get into all kinds of trouble!! How her friends try to help her find the killer and catch the monster behind these unspeakable murders.

I have been a Drag Queen for over 40 years and this is the first time I have been asked to collaborate on a book. Drag Queens are my speciality and I have worked in Cabaret shows since 1968 as well as extensively in Musical Theater, Television, Radio and Films. I really was excited and honored to help with the book and this book was an ultimate thrill for me.Thanks toYvonne Mason for her faith in me, and for having the insight to choose me to help her navigate this drag queen world. Thanks to Peter for his energy and Marvolous Wit…We will always be connected with this superb Book! ”

Vicky Lane

Yes, the lovely Vicky Lane not only wrote the forward she also appears in this wonderful little comedy.

More Coming with Hope and Alex

Okay boys and girls and children of all ages just when you thought you would not see another book by me for a while it happens. Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc (you remember her she was the Mistress of  the Damned) and I are smack in the middle of the third  When Fates Collide Series.  You remember Hope Harrington the mousy secretary who just had to have a change in her dull life and Alex Morgan the cynical no nonsense bounty hunter. They hooked up in When Fates Collide when Alex thought Hope was her jumper and embarrassed her by taking her down in Hope’s local haunt.

After that it was on like Donkey Kong (for those of you to young to understand it was one of the first video games before you were born). Hope insisted that she hook up with Alex to go after the real jumper – why not she wasn’t busy that weekend- just like she was not busy any weekend.

Hope didn’t know that he life would forever change as she knew it. Each case would be as different as night and day. She would go places meet people and do things that she never expected to do in her drab little life.

When Fates Collide was just the beginning:when fates collied front for press releases

After grabbing their jumper in Key West Hope and Alex are off to New Orleans right in the middle of Mardi Gras to pick up a Marie wanna be who has decided to lead them on a merry chase in the bayou along with a few more colorful characters which makes Hope’s head spin and that is just the beginning. Things as usual do not go as planned and Hope finds herself in a place she never thought she would be. Alex of course isn’t happy she has to not only get her jumper she also has to find Hope who is no MIA during the middle of Mardi Gras (Cue the music from Deliverance):

When Fates Collide Mardi Gras Bound

When Fates Collide Mardi Gras Bound

Things go from bad to worse in the newest installment of the Abbott and Costello slapstick ride. After Hope and Alex finish their little adventure in New Orleans with  a little help from their friends they find themselves in St. Marteen looking for an old Nemesis- which turns out to be two of them. This adventure is not complete without a few old friends from Key West one of the being the owner of The Pink Canary:

The Pink Canary

The Pink Canary

The Pink Canary is owned by a Private Eye named Lou who not only owns the club he is the headliner known as Lola. Lola has a sidekick who is known as Penelope and a new found friend also a drag queen Vicky.

 

The newest adventure of Hope and Alex begin in St. Marteen and it seems that these three ladies have shown up in St. Marteen at a very good  time. Alex enlists their aid and catching her new jumpers  St.James and of course Momma. This new adventure while starting in St. Marteen ends up back in Key West where Hope once again finds herself in the middle of a situation.

 

The Abbott and Costello slapstick continues in the newest of the series When Fates Collide Arm Candy. Alex and Hope are running out of time as they try to out think and out smart St. James and Momma in order to get them back to jail. They enlist the aid of St. James’s newest squeeze better known as his arm candy. But as with all of our books things are not always as they seem:When Fates Collide - Arm Candy

If you have not yet read the series or Pink Canary you might just want to pick them up. They are all stand alones however they are funnier when read in sequence. Pink Canary is not part of the series however, the characters were brought into Arm Candy to help out.

Andrea and I are not responsible for wet clothing that you the reader might end up wearing as a result of uncontrollable laughter while reading these books. There are disclaimers in the book to that effect. We just write the stories we are not responsible for  anything that our characters do or cause.

These are great little reads- They are fun and they are entertaining. Arm Candy will be out later this year so you have time to read the others before the release. All of these books are on kindle and nook. They can be purchased on Amazon and Lulu and you can buy direct from me.

So what are you waiting for go have some fun read comedy.

As with all of the adventures of Alex and Hope the trip is more than just a pick up. It is an Abbot and Costello slap stick comedy which encompasses all the personalities into  kaleidoscopic humor.
