Birthday Question


Aren't you allowed to eat anything you want on the day before your birthday?
Isn't that a thing?



Does one of your armpits stink more than the other?
Asking for a friend.

History of the Vampire Has Launched!

For readers of Gayla Twist, History of the Vampire - book 4 in the Vanderlind Castle series - has launched!

Before Jessie fell in love with Aurora, he knew her as another girl. This is their story: 

“I couldn’t help that I was in love with Colette Gibson, but it did complicate things. Ending my romance with her would be the right thing to do. Turning her into a member of the undead would be the selfish thing to do. And conjoining with Colette for the rest of her life, and the rest of my eternity, would be the foolish thing to do. I knew all of that. The only problem was that I couldn’t see clearly which path to take. By the time the sun set and I climbed out of my coffin for the evening, I knew only one thing for sure; I had to see her.” 

Even though this is a prequel to the first three Vanderlind Castle books, it is best to read the story as book 4. I’ve included a few Easter Eggs for readers and there are many spoilers if you read the books out of order. It’s up to you, of course, but I wrote the book to be experienced after the first three stories. – xo GT

What I Learned From Being a Cheerleader

I actually was a cheerleader in eighth grade. And it was almost as disastrous as Elaine's experience in What I Learned From Being a Cheerleader. It turns out that the popular girls weren't very pleased that a geek had made it onto the squad. But my cheerleading experience wasn't what originally motivated me to write What I Learned From Being a Cheerleader. I actually started writing the book as a way to deal with my frustration from living under a pack of noisy neighbors in an apartment I was sharing with two other women. The neighbors were five guys and a girl, who all lived together (this is San Francisco, after all. It's too expensive to live alone) and as a group they were incredibly noisy. We tried everything to encourage them to be considerate, but it was beyond their capabilities. I guess I thought of Elain's grandmother as a way to finally teach the neighbors a lesson about living in a tightly-packed community.

I'm delighted to announce that What I Learned From Being a Cheerleader will be part of the Amazon Daily Deal tomorrow. - May 3rd. It's a great opportunity to grab an e-copy at a discount price. Here's the link:

Cool Quote

I read this quote in my word of the day email and I kind of love it:

All one's life as a young woman one is on show, a focus of attention, people notice you. You set yourself up to be noticed and admired. And then, not expecting it, you become middle-aged and anonymous. No one notices you. You achieve a wonderful freedom. It's a positive thing. You can move about unnoticed and invisible. -Doris Lessing, novelist, poet, playwright, Nobel laureate (1919-2013)
