Coffee Time Romance

Do Wah Diddy Dead was first released in the Ghostly Dreamspell anthology.

If Miss Weena can put off dying to solve Miss Gracie's murder, then Luci can't play the pregnancy card to get out of playing side-kick. It's not like it will be dangerous. Miss Gracie has been dead--though not gone--for decades…

(This story follows my novel, Do Wah Diddy Die.)

Do Wah Diddy Die Already first appeared in the Dead and Breakfast anthology. 

Luci Seymour is out of the murder business and into the mom/wife/B&B business. Until the morning she sees a body in the freezer. But when she goes to call in her hubby, the dead guy walks in the front door. Not dead. Not even chilly…

(This story also features characters from Do Wah Diddy Dead.)

Deleting Dennis made its debut in The Mystery of of the Green Mist anthology.

Capri Hinkenlooper thought her name--and Monday mornings--were the worst things in her life, but then her fellow editor and all around slimy guy gets deleted with her letter opener. On the upside, the two homicide detectives are seriously cute…

"Deleting Dennis engaged this reader from the first sentence because of the author’s witty style of writing. Pauline Baird Jones provides a well-written mystery that is pure enjoyment." L&L Dreamspell blog, comments by JACQUELINE SEEWALD

Project Enterprise - The Short Stories 

Amazon (get the audio for $1.99 if you buy the digital edition) iBooks Print Edition (bundled with Tangled in Time.) Kobo  NOOK

This collection includes the two, connected stories from my Project Enterprise Series:

Men in Jeans - Originally published in the A Death in Texas anthology, Richard Daniels thinks life can't any stranger working at Area 51 until he gets assigned to find out where a Houston area SF writer gets the ideas for her books. Should be an easy assignment--if it weren't for the dead guy in her back yard and the non-business related ideas she's giving him.

(This story is a stand-alone and has a guest appearance by Kiernan Fyn from The Key.)

Steam Time - From Dreamspell Steampunk Vol One, the man formerly known as Tobias Smith hadn’t planned to ride along with Dr. Everly and his Medicine Show. Grifters gave him a pain their elixirs couldn’t heal. But he was headed to Marfa, too. And Everly’s “son” turned out to be a really fine looking damsel—one in distress when the ghost lights of Marfa bump them into an alternate reality complete with an automaton gang and airships. Could he be the good guy? Be the hero, save the day and get the girl? 

While all four stories are written well, Steam Time stands out from the rest." Manic Readers

"The characters are warm and the story complete with mystery, conflict and romance even though it is just a short story.  I particularly liked this one because Tobias Smith is a character from The Key and Girl Gone Nova which are two other stories of Pauline's that I really like."  Martha Reads

"I enjoyed all the stories in Dreamspell but I did have a favorite. I had just finished Steamrolled by Pauline Baird Jones when I read her story in Dreamspell.  Steam Time is a side story in the Steamrolled Universe." Mixed Book Bag
