I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to tell you, and the world at large, about this book.
Although I have seven published books, Social Vampire is technically my debut novel. The other titles are better classified as gamebooks, or interactive fiction (I’m talking about my Click Your Poison series here).
But unlike my other books, the only choice here, is whether or not to give it a try.
The novel is meant to be humorous, heartfelt, and to resonate with both teens and adults. Coming-of-age is a genre of fiction for general audiences, but my protagonist is a teenager; does that make the book YA?
There are romantic elements to the story — should I highlight those, like in this promotional graphic?
In a perfect world, I’d like you to hear about this book through word of mouth. It might not look like something you’d normally read. It might not even sound like what you’d normally read, but if a trusted friend recommended it, I’d hope you would give it a try.
So let me start: read this book.
You’ll find heart and soul, clever turns of phrase, genuine laugh-out-loud moments throughout, and probably a chapter or two threatening to be a tearjerker.
After that, it’s your turn. If you read the book and love it, tell the world!
As you can see above, the early reviews are flowing in. Here are some more testimonials:
“It’s like Mean Girls flavored with Teen Wolf”
(for my film & TV followers)
“In the vein of John Green”
(for my literary lovers)
(for the humor fans)
And, of course, I hope to see your thoughts on the book as well. But you’ve got to get it first… Fortunately, the day has finally arrived! Social Vampire is now widely available in both print and ebook. Here’s a list of just some of the retailers that carry the book:
