Big Announcement: Half-Vampire Is FINALLY Available In Paperback!

Lurking in the nuclei of a few rare human cells is an as-yet unstudied gene. It is a gene that makes the inheritor crave mammal blood and faint in bright sunlight. It is a gene that prevents the bearer from appearing normally in digital or mirror images.
It’s a gene that makes your life heck if you’re in junior high and trying to fit in.

Eric Wright is a half-vampire with a problem. Several problems, actually. He can’t tell his bloodlust from his rollercoaster adolescent hormones. The cutest girl in first period English wants him to become a vegetarian. And the assistant principal suspends him when he refuses to explain why his skin appears translucent in a school security video.

Then Eric’s non-vampire mom, who’s definitely not telling everything she knows, takes him with her on a business trip. To Scotland, where it never stays sunny for very long. The perfect hang out for a vampire. Or several. If only Eric can find one to talk to before he makes any more stupid mistakes....

I finally decided I was going to live with the one misplaced comma and one incorrectly capitalized word and just approved the ms for publication on Saturday, February 4, 2012.
As I type this, Amazon has not yet finished the page for the book and has not yet put up the product description -- but perhaps that will be fixed later today.
Also, while the e-book version has 7 reviews and a small list of books people have also bought while shopping for my book, the POD paperback has only the one review that I asked Tempppo to copy and paste over from the e-book page -- and it looks rather forlorn.  Any of you who have a moment to click the "like" button, please do so.
This was a TON of work, and I'm proud to have it finally finished.  It'll be fun to see a bunch of copies in our school library also.  :)
So, if you'd like to buy a book, you can go here and buy the POD for $9.99.  Or you can still click here and buy the e-book for 99¢.


  1. Consider it liked :)
    And big congrats. Must be a great feeling.

  2. If the 'book' becomes available in the UK I'll give it a like. I've just tried on the Amazon site and it won't let me.

    If I can, I'll copy the review for Half Vampire over too.

    1. Hey, thanks for putting up the review!

  3. Super cool! And PS-- I love Scotland. Went there again this summer. (=

    1. Jealous!
      Are you going to tell me which part of Scotland, or just leave me wondering?
