I am taking a huge satisfaction in the fact that I just outwitted my cat. HUGE! He is currently in the process of screaming at me in the most angry tone I have ever heard from him, aside from when he sees another cat in his yard. Oh… now he stopped and is giving me evil eyes. I think he knows I am typing about him. It’s a bit obvious since I keeping looking at him and then typing fast and laughing. I don’t feel bad. I think he is kinda a jerk right now, so erm..no guilt. Sorry, not sorry. See, every day we have the same argument. I pull up a chair next to me to put my feet on while I work at the computer. He insists on sitting on that chair, smooshing my legs uncomfortably to the side, and eventually pushing them completely off the chair. All the while pawing my leg trying to make his way onto my lap. HE IS THE SIZE OF A COW! I can’t work with him on my lap. I have explained this to him a thousand times. He never listens to me…EVER! Today I just couldn’t take it anymore. Then it hit me. My brilliance was almost frightening. I made a move that for a second I thought might be too much. Then that fat paw came out again and touched my leg for the millionth time. THAT WAS IT!!! I made my move. I pushed the chair out of reach of my leg. Not fast…very slowly. He looked at me, then the chair he was sliding away on, then back at me. I could tell he was becoming angry. Like I cheated or something. His angry screams told me I had won. OH WHAT A GLORIOUS FEELING!!! To bad I can’t put my legs up.

FREE for a limited time

JA Konrath, known for the Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels thrillers set in Chicago, offers this collection of short stories and novellas from the Jack Daniels universe.

Join Jack Daniels, her partner Herb Benedict, private eye Harry McGlade, and part-time criminal Phineas Troutt, in this omnibus of 15 stories.

These were previously published in magazines and anthologies, and many are long out of print.

On the Rocks – Suicide or murder? Lt. Jack Daniels solves a locked room mystery.

Whelp Wanted – P.I. Harry McGlade becomes a dognapper in order to stop a dognapper, or something like that.

Street Music – Phineas Troutt hunts a prostitute through the dangerous streets of Chicago. Are his intentions pure?

The One That Got Away – The Gingerbread Man (the villain from WHISKEY SOUR) hunts one final victim.

With a Twist – It looked like the man fell from a great height, but the body is in his living room. Jack Daniels solves another impossible crime.

Epitaph – Phin Troutt takes on a Chicago street gang with vengeance on his mind.

Taken to the Cleaners – Harry McGlade tries to solve a difficult mystery, but mostly just goofs off.

Body Shots – Jack Daniels faces her most challenging case yet; a school shooting. But does she know more about the perp than she realizes?

Suffer – Phineas Troutt has taken some questionable jobs, but will he murder a man’s wife?

School Daze – P.I. Harry McGlade investigates a private school, but he’s not entirely sure why.

Overproof – While shopping on the Gold Coast, Jack Daniels notices traffic has come to a stand-still. When she realizes what the problem is, she’s confronted with her own mortality, and the possible deaths of hundreds.

Bereavement – How badly does Phineas Troutt need a fix? What is he willing to do?

Pot Shot – Detective Herb Benedict just wants a home cooked meal. But his plans get interrupted by a very determined sniper.

Last Request – Phineas Troutt picks up a hitchhiker, with deadly results.

The Necro File – Harry McGlade investigates some bizarre murders in this hilarious, gore-filled mini-epic. (Author’s note: This is easily the funniest thing I’ve ever written, but it’s also very offensive. Let the reader beware… )

That’s about 65,000 words of Jack Daniels and friends, formatted specifically for Kindle with an active table of contents. Also included in this collection are excerpts from some of Jack’s other adventures, including:

An excerpt from Truck Stop by J.A. Konrath and Jack Kilborn, where Jack finds herself dueling with two serial killers at once.

An excerpt from Floaters by J.A. Konrath and Henry Perez, where Jack joins forces with Chicago reporter Alex Chapa to solve a bizarre disappearance.

An excerpt from Planter’s Punch by J.A. Konrath and Tom Schreck, where Jack travels to NY and befriends professional boxer Duffy Dombrowski to break an extortion ring.

And excerpt from Suckers by J.A. Konrath and Jeff Strand, where Harry McGlade reluctantly teams up with Andrew Mayhem. Hilarity ensues.

Minimalist: A Minimalism Guide for Decluttering Your Life and Living a Wonderfully Simple Lifestyle
by Kelly Ann Callahan
4.3 Stars (73 Reviews)
Genre: Religion & Spirituality | Self-Help

FREE for a limited time

In 2010 I had a nice boyfriend, a nice corporate job and a nice apartment in Dallas, Texas. Then a friend was diagnosed with a brain tumor and given two years to live. This changed my whole outlook on life. I realized that it could be now or never to live life on my terms.

In the span of a few months, I left my lover, quit my job and gave away almost all of my possessions in order to attend graduate school for two years in Europe. At the age of 37, I was going to study something completely new, not for career enhancement but simply out of curiosity.

In those two years, I lived in four countries, with nothing but the contents of two suitcases. After graduating, I thought I would be happy to “re-clutter” a space I could call my own, but instead I found myself almost physically repelled by things which do not serve an essential purpose. And I remain nomadic. Enlightenment, as I know it now, can refer to both weightlessness and wisdom.

Beyond the dispensation of material objects, I have simplified my life by serving what I consider to be an essential purpose, myself. Unable to find a traditional job upon my return to the U.S., I began volunteering at a dementia daycare center in San Francisco. Contributing compassion is more important to me than any single thing, and so to accommodate my volunteer schedule I became a freelance writer. It has been twenty years since I received my undergraduate degree in journalism, but only now do I have stories worth sharing.

My minimalist transformation is one of them. I can’t wait to tell you about it – and show you how you can do it, too!
