Publisher's Summary

'Tis the season for magical mayhem. Leigh vows upon her magic desk and witch's broom that Thankshanukkamas will be filled with childlike joy for her, her family, and her friends - even if it kills them. And it may just come to that! With a new publishing contract in hand, the disaster pieces fly from Leigh's desk. With titles like Sleighing the Elfa - The Elf Pack Book 1, Restoring the Old Schlitt House - A "Do Yourself" Romance, Fangin' the Billion-were, and Gangin' the Billion-were, the mischief piles up.

When the EPA (Elf Protection Agency) shows up at Leigh's door, she's got some explaining to do. Throw in a couple of retired mobsters, Fur-Con, bats in the belfry, and a shape-shifting witch and you've got a recipe for catastrophe. Can Leigh and the gang save the fate of all paranormals? Or will this be the end of the line for Leigh and her band of magical misfits?

    "Holly Jolly Hilarious Holidays"
    What did you love best about Joyful Leigh?

    What's not to love? Gertie and Leigh are hilarious together add in the others and OMG butt gusting funny.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    In this book I am going to say Hunter. He get stuck in a cat suit and Oh my I laughed so hard.


    What does Hollie Jackson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I have read the book and Hollie Jackson is wonderful with all her different voice adjustments in certain areas of the story brings it to life and makes it even funnier.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Leigh and Gertie are in the store and there is a holdup. How they handled this situation was really good. Also when Hunter gets stuck in the cat suit how they define things about him is truly funny.
