Karma Is A Bitch

Author: Lizzy Stevens


Karmas are immortals that kept the not so good people in line. They lived by the motto “Do bad things bad things will happen.” Tessa Waters was one of the best Karmas of the Karma realm. However, she wasn’t the fastest. She would watch over the realms, Earth, being her main realm. When she saw somebody not behaving she would send down a Karma punishment on that person. They were always funny and made the other Karmas laugh but she wasn’t fast enough. The head Karma thought it would help Tessa if instead of watching from a far she went down to Earth and passed out the punishments up close. Maybe that would make her faster. She could not return until she hit 100 Karmas. Tessa thought that would be no problem. Until the trickster of all tricksters, Loki, got in her way. How was she supposed to pass out Karmas if Loki was right in the way playing pranks on everyone? Now Tessa had to deal with the trouble makers and Loki. How was she supposed to hit her goal of 100 and make it back home?

Excerpt from Karma is a Bitch

Chapter One

The Karma realm was what kept earth running on somewhat of an even kilter. It had a corporation of Karmas that worked daily to watch over people and when they did things that they shouldn’t a Karma would get back at them for it. Which was where the phrase Karma is a bitch came from. Karma wasn’t one person though. Karma was an entity of different people. They clocked in and clocked out.

Today was like every other day for Tessa Waters. Nothing ever changed when you were a Karma. She would clock in and then she had to stand for hours watching a big screen, something like a crystal ball that was always moving, showing her all the people in the world who were doing wrong every minute of every day. As she watched and waited, she planned her course of action for their punishment for what they had done wrong.

When Tessa arrived at work, she soon realized it was not like all the others. Today was a special day. The most important person of all was supposed to be there today. The ruler of Karma World would be there. She had some news for all of the Karmas. Something important was all they had heard and Madam Karma herself wanted to discuss it with them. She would be there today at headquarters to talk to all of the Karmas.

Tessa walked into the break room with her short blonde pixie cut hair. Nothing ever got her down. She was always happy. The room had a vending machine against one wall, a round table with five plastic chairs around it with four other Karmas sitting in them. Over against the back was a small blue sofa. Tess cheerfully walked in. “So does anyone have any idea what’s going on today? What’s this big news?”

All she got was a bunch of shrugs. Nobody really seemed to care much. She frowned and walked out with disappointment at how she seemed to be the only one who showed any interest in anything around there. Tessa heard the loud speaker sound the alarm calling everyone to the conference room. She started stepping up and down on her toes and back flat footed as she waited for the announcement to stop. Then she took off running to get to the conference room. Excitement was flooding through her. She couldn’t wait to hear what the Madam had to say. She ran in and to her assigned seat as quickly as she could.

Written by International Best Selling Author Lizzy Stevens her husband Steve Miller and their two boys Jason Miller and Noah Miller.

Tara’s day goes from bad to worse when she finds a lamp while cleaning out her grandma’s attic after she died. She found an old lamp with a note attached. ““Whoever finds this lamp, Take my advice. Do not rub the lamp. Do not make a wish. Put it back where you found it and run away.” Tara thought her grandma was just making a joke until she accidently rubbed the lamp and the genie popped out.

Mark, the Genie of the lamp, was not very happy to be a genie any longer. He wanted out of his life. So what he did to show that he wasn’t happy was that no matter what the person wished for he would twists and turn the words of the wish and make it a little more fun for him and not so much fun for the person who made the wish.

After two wishes went in the wrong direction, Tara wished to be left alone which in turn, Mark sent her to a deserted Island. He thought he was being his usual funny self until his punishment was to be sent there with her, but he was sent without his powers.

How will this all work out for Mark and Tara? How will they get off the island without his powers?
