The Reluctant Vampire...new website!

Hi all!
I just wanted to let you all know I've been working very hard at doing reviews and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. I love to read and I love to write so putting them together is the perfect job for me! Also, I took my self-published book, The Reluctant Vampire and added to the website called Smashwords. There, they pass your book around to all the big seller companies and do their own reviews so hopefully I'll get more buyers than on lulu but you'll still be able to purchase it on either site. The new site to purchase it is www.smashwords.com/books/view/28092 and I made it $2 cheaper on there! I'm still working on The Vampire Queen with the publishing house it's just that they are taking their good old sweet time and I'm getting antsy so I'm trying to find things to keep me busy. Been on kind of a writing dry spell for a couple weeks too. DON'T FORGET! Tomorrow is my author day at http://www.tonyasramblings.com/ so you will get to see my work there all day long so check back frequently. TTFN!

First Review

So, I signed up to do book reviews with You Gotta Read and last night I got my first assignment. The book was so good I read the entire thing in one night and wrote the review. It was really great! I felt a great sense of accomplishment, got to actually sit down and read something (compared to just mindlessly browsing the internet) and help out a fellow author. Unfortunately, the book has already been printed and is available online so I'm not sure how they're going to use my review but I had fun doing it. Of course, the subject matter was vampires and paranormal activity with a strong female heroine. That's totally me! I'm so excited and can't wait to do my next one!

Self published book!

Hey all!
 I tried to do one of those self publishing places, http://www.lulu.com/ and did a self publishing of my The Reluctant Vampire appropriate for teens and up. This was my first non adult exclusive vampire book so sometimes it was hard to not revert back to adult material but the finished product turned out awesome! I hope you all check it out and let me know what you think about it. Keep in mind that I had no editor or cover artist, I had to do it all myself. I think I did a pretty good job! Please read it and comment back to let me know your thoughts or reviews! It is already available for $5.99 at http://www.lulu.com/!
