A Bite Somebody Christmas Special

It’s been called the Pretty in Pink of vampire novels. Bridget Jones with fangs. One reader said, “If you like imagining midnight swims with Benedict Cumberbatch while listening to David Bowie, this is the book for you.” Another reader bemoaned, “This needs to be made into a TV show so I can see it and then complain how it’s not enough like the book. Someone make that happen.” There’s even a hashtag: #Imogene4Life.

BiteSomebody_finalOf course, I’m talking about Bite Somebody.

Released in June of this year, my first novel is a comic take on vampire lore, set in the sweltering heat of Southern Florida. I’ve been blessed by fans who’ve fallen in love with awkward Celia, bad girl Imogene, and sexy surfer Ian. If you’re a blog follower of mine, you’ve probably read Bite Somebody, but what about that friend of yours who needs a good laugh? What about the sister-in-law who loves romance stories? What about that neighbor who loves Anne Rice?

That’s right: it’s Christmas gift time! Here are some options for the vampire / love / comedy / Florida enthusiast in your life:

  1. My amazing publisher, World Weaver Press, is offering free shipping and a dollar off retail cost for the month of December if you order directly from their online store by clicking HERE.

I hope you’ll consider buying Bite Somebody for somebody special this holiday season. And remember, kids: only bite the people you love. Ho-ho-ho! (Who you calling a ho?)

Happy Book Birthday, BITE SOMEBODY!

BiteSomebody_final

Today is the day. My first novel, Bite Somebody, is now available for purchase on Amazon, at World Weaver Press, and all over really in paperback and eBook formats.

I currently float in a strange state of half-reality. No, I’m not on my third rum punch. It just feels so surreal. All my life, I’ve dreamt of having a book published, and today, it has happened. I know I’m supposed to be doing social media blasts and promotion, but I feel quite content just sitting here, smiling, and staring out my office window.

There are many people to thank for this accomplishment, but I won’t list them here, because they’re all in the Bite Somebody acknowledgments. I will say (again and again), I never could have done this alone.

Bite Somebody is a book of ridiculous joy, so to everyone who’s ever had a fat day, a sad day, or a maybe-I-don’t-want-to-live-anymore day … Remember to find the funny, because even when blood hunters are after your boyfriend, there’s still Bob Marley. There’s still the ocean. There is still love.


About Bite Somebody:

“Do you want to be perfect?”

That’s what Danny asked Celia the night he turned her into a vampire. Three months have passed since, and immortality didn’t transform her into the glamorous, sexy vamp she was expecting, but left her awkward, lonely, and working at a Florida gas station. On top of that, she’s a giant screw-up of an immortal, because the only blood she consumes is from illegally obtained hospital blood bags.

What she needs to do—according to her moody vampire friend Imogene—is just … bite somebody. But Celia wants her first bite to be special, and she has yet to meet Mr. Right Bite. Then, Ian moves in next door. His scent creeps through her kitchen wall and makes her nose tingle, but insecure Celia can’t bring herself to meet the guy face-to-face.

When she finally gets a look at Ian’s cyclist physique, curly black hair, and sun-kissed skin, other parts of Celia tingle, as well. Could he be the first bite she’s been waiting for to complete her vampire transformation? His kisses certainly have a way of making her fangs throb.

Just when Celia starts to believe Ian may be the fairy tale ending she always wanted, her jerk of a creator returns to town, which spells nothing but trouble for everyone involved.
