Frequently Asked Questions!

Will there be a 4th book in the Blood Coven Vampires series?

YES! It’s called Bad Blood and it will be out in January 2010. Before that, the publisher will be repackaging and re-releasing the first three books in the series with new covers. A great chance to introduce the series to new people! When we get closer to the date – I’ll be hosting contests for you to help me spread the word!

For German readers, the 4th book will be out in August or September. Yes, you get it early!

What will Bad Blood be about?

I can’t share ALL the details, but I can tell you that it will take place in Las Vegas and be from Sunny’s point of view, continuing on from where Girls that Growl left off. She and Magnus are close as can be – until the Blood Coven appoints a new girl to become his new blood mate. Sunny’s furious – and then worried – when she realizes the new blood mate may not be who she pretends to be!

Why don’t you make this series into a movie or a TV show?

I’d love to, but this isn’t up to me! First a producer will have to option the rights for the book. So if you know of any interested producers – send them my way!  The movie/tv rights are available and ready to be sold.

I loved how Gamer Girl featured manga and videogames. Are you a fan, too?

Yes! I love manga and anime and am an active girl gamer. My favorite series is Vampire Knight (surprise, right?) and .hack//sign. I also love the Dramacon manga – so cute! For videogames, I love World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy on the computer. At my house we have every console, too. Xbox360, Playstation 3, and Wii. Love Metal Gear Solid, SingStar, Dance Dance Revolution, Fallout 3, and House of the Dead.

Will there be a sequel to Gamer Girl?

We don’t know yet. It depends how well part one does in stores. So be sure to spread the word to all your friends if you liked it! I’m willing to write it if they want me to. Seems like Maddy’s adventures should continue!

I’m writing a book, too! Can you help me?

While I’d love to help everyone, obviously you can imagine I get a ton of requests and I need to concentrate mostly on writing my own books! That said, if you have a specific question, feel free to ask and I’ll do my best to answer. However, for legal reasons my agent says I can’t read any of your specific writing.

I’ve drawn a picture/made a YouTube video based on your books.

Awesome! Email it to me. I’d love to see it. I love your creativity!!! Makes my job more fun to see my characters come to life!

Can you come do a book signing in my town?

Sadly, I’ve got a full time job and so I can’t be traveling all over the country to do book signings. However, I will consider school visits so I’m happy to have your teacher write to me with a request and I can see if it’s possible to add it to my schedule.

I want to do an article on you and your books for my school paper. Can I interview you?

Absolutely! Just email me! I’m happy to answer questions.

I can't find one of your older books in the bookstore!

All the books are available to order online at sites like Amazon.com or Barnesandnoble.com. However, the best thing to do is to go to the information desk of your local bookstore and ask them to order you a copy. You don't have to pay until it comes in (which usually only takes a couple days) and this way you're letting the bookstore know this is a book they need to keep in stock!

I have a question you haven’t answered in this FAQ!

Either post it in the comments section or email me privately and I’ll do my best to answer.
