Press Release: “Thanks for Killing Kenny” Published by the University of Florida Bookstore

InstaBook Publisher and the University of Florida Bookstore announced today in Gainesville, Florida the publication of Thanks for Killing Kenny, the first of the Amelia St. John murder mystery series by K. Couturier.

Gainesville, FL (PRWEB) February 18, 2006 -- A romp through the Old South that will tickle your funny bone while scaring you half to death. This is the first book in an eight book series based in the fictional town of Buttesville, Florida. The heroine of the book tackles the supernatural, family, friends and Southern tradition.

Amelia St. John has always appeared somewhat odd to her hometown of Buttesville, Florida. She is a Paranormal Investigator with a PhD in Paranormal Physics. When Sheriff Kenny Quinn turns up dead in Miller’s Mansion during one of her investigations, Amelia is the first one “Thanked” for killing him. Amelia isn’t too concerned about Kenny’s death; no one really liked Kenny anyhow, but when dead bodies start to show up all over Miller’s Mansion she must act or be axed. Amelia is the only one in town with a lick of sense, so it falls on her small shoulders to solve these murders before they strike again.

Amelia returns after 20 years to Buttesville to claim her ancestral home, Southern Vines. She has to renovate the historic house before it falls in on her head. Her ex-husband stealing all her money and her Grandmother’s ghost living at Southern Vines further complicates her life. A hometown that is still planning the next Civil War scrimmage add color to a cast of kooky Southern characters you are sure to fall in love with.

Sherry Mims from The Daily Commercial says, “Thanks for Killing Kenny is a fun romp through rural Florida-with a Supernatural twist. K. Couturier is a natural storyteller. She nails the details of backwoods Florida, complete with colorful characters, Southern pride, clannishness and lots and lots of small-town gossip.

Don’t miss this exciting family saga that will thrill you, make you laugh and make you cry all at the same time. Thanks for Killing Kenny has it all.

The title is available to be ordered online from InstaBook Publisher (

  1. Thanks for Killing Kenny is totally a fun read. This campy page-turner mixes humor, fright, the paranormal and suspense. I loved the ending – I didn’t see it coming. I’m looking forward to the next installment.

  2. Next book in this series due out in March! K Couturier
