About this Store:

Learn More
Jacquelyn believes strongly in making her books as widely available as possible, with the ultimate goal of making them accessible to readers in any country on any device. While her books are currently available from countless retailers worldwide, all of those retailers also take a significant cut of the purchase price when you, the reader, make a purchase–putting the author at the bottom of the royalty payment chain.

When you make a purchase directly from this site, ALL of the money paid (minus a small cut to process the transaction) goes directly to Jacquelyn–the creator of the books–at no extra cost to you. This direct purchase method also allows Jacquelyn to provide the occasional promotional price or special offer to her readers in turn.

The ebooks offered to purchase on this site are all priced in USD, and are available in both ePUB and mobi format, DRM-free. (While Jacquelyn has plans to branch out into other direct purchase items and formats, she is only offering ebooks for direct purchase at this time. Mobi format works with Kindle, while ePUB works for pretty much every other platform.)

If you have any questions about buying direct, you can find the Direct Purchase FAQ here.

If you would prefer to stick with your usual retailer to purchase Jacquelyn’s books, no problem! Any form support on any platform, whether as a purchase, or even a recommendation to a friend is both welcome and very much appreciated. This store is merely meant to provide another potential option for readers. You can find links to all the various online retailers in both ebook and paperback format for each book by clicking on the title or cover to visit the book’s detail page. You will also find a link to the digital library hoopla as well for titles that have been added to their catalog.


The Kira Brightwell Mystery Series:

Kira Brightwell just wants to mind her own business. Maybe go for a run, or hone her MMA skills while blasting some Nine Inch Nails. She never goes looking for trouble.

But somehow, trouble always seems to find her. Usually the missing woman or dead body kind.

…Good thing she knows how to use her wits, as well as her fists.

Dive into the ongoing cases of a clever detective who kicks ass in this fast-paced mystery series by Jacquelyn Smith. (Earlier titles in the series originally published under the pen name Kat Irwin.)

The Mackenzie Quinn Mystery Series:

Zee never planned to move back to her hometown of Ashwood, Ontario—and definitely not with her parents. (At the age of forty, no less.) She never expected to stumble across a dead body either. And the kittens… They took her by surprise as well.

With her life turned upside down by cats and crime, and her own secrets under threat, she decides to become the author of her own destiny. (And good luck to anyone who stands in her way—or tries to call her ‘Mackenzie.’)

Follow Zee’s (mis)adventures in this Canadian cozy mystery series by Jacquelyn Smith, author of the Kira Brightwell mysteries.
