EXTREME MAKEOVER Vampire Edition is out!

When Charlaine Harris and Toni L.P. Kelner invited me to submit a piece for their next anthology DEAD BUT NOT FORGOTTEN, I spent a few minutes in stunned disbelief. Then reality hit, and I hit a session of stomach-twisting anxiety. I wasn’t just being asked to pen a 8,000 words to charm the readers, I was being asked to write within the world Charlaine created for the Sookie Stackhouse novels.DEAD BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

Oh my.

Her characters.
Her world rules.
Sookieverse in all its glory.

I had to choose a character. But who? I did NOT want to screw this up. A walk-on character would be best, I decided. Someone who the readers didn’t know too well.¬† And someone who I could identify with…. What did I know how to do? Well, I knew how to accessorize…

Which is how I came to write a story about Bev Leveto and Todd Seabrook, the two vampire co-hosts of a hit makeover television show. When Eric sends them to the backwoods of Louisiana, the two fashionestas  meet their greatest challenge to date: the Recluse of Vicksburg. Mayhem ensues as they attempt to drag the reluctant vampire into the 21st century!

Last week, Audible.com released the audio book, DEAD BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. It can be downloaded for free for a one month trial membership here.

    Hooray! I love when authors allow other people to play in their yard with their toys!

    I’ll bet your piece will thrill the socks off of me!
