Daily Kindle Bargains - My Funny Valentine

My Funny Valentine is available on Kindle for just $2.99.


Valentine's Day gets treated by some of the funniest writers in America: the people who win the humor contests, write syndicated columns, appear on comedy states, create the jokes you hear on TV. A fun read, and an open invitation to laugh at the joke that makes the world go around.

Some samples:

I don’t need a special day to be awkward, uncomfortable and falsely selfless. That’s what dating was for. Blythe Jewell

This is not to imply that the only men who remember Valentine’s Day are philanderers. Some of them, for example, are only thinking about cheating. Greg Podolski

We lovingly refer to it as Valentine’s Day because "Sex for Chocolate Day" was vetoed by the greeting card industry. Leigh Anne Jasheway

Valentine’s Day is about those five little words: Charge it to my Visa. Jim Shea

Inappropriate Valentine's Day Gifts include: Tickets to a ball game, box of chocolates left over from Christmas, vacuum cleaner, herpes. Jonathan Shipley

Clubbing a man over the head with a bat and dragging him into your love den has been interpreted as somehow criminal, by people who belong to fringe groups like the "police" and the "courts". What in heaven’s name is a girl to do?! Kate Heidel

From the Reviewers:

"One of those must have books not only because it is terrific reading but also because it has a lot to say about contemporary relationships. Kudos to a crew of writers who are very in the know about love and relationships. This is a little treasure of a book with some of the most terse humor being written today!"
--Grady Harp, Hall of Fame Reviewer

About the Editors:

Linton Robinson:

Born in Occupied Japan, schooled in Asia, now a 20 year resident of Latin America, Linton Robinson's status as a born outsider is reflected in his books.

Robinson worked as journalist for years, winning awards and placing articles in top American magazine and newspaper markets. This was followed by a brief career as a photographer, also with credits in top markets. He then moved into mailorder catalogs, with noted success, before switching to newspapers in Mexico and Guatemala.

His syndicated columns "Flesh Wounds" and "Weekend Warrior" were cult favorites in the nineties.

He is currently working on novels and screenplays and doing videos.

Karla Telega:

Despite the best efforts of the psychiatric community, I've managed to unleash my first book on society. I consider myself a humor writer primarily, but I love a good mystery, so I've combined the two in Box of Rocks.

I'm at that awkward age between hot flashes and the senior menu, so I enjoy poking fun at the aging process. I live with my husband in the low country of South Carolina, where we have to dodge alligators, snakes, and freakishly huge spiders. My kids are grown, my dog's a genius, and my husband has the patience of a saint.
