Spring break vampires

Happy Tuesday! I had to laugh at Shawntelle's post yesterday because we're doing the same thing over at our house - spring break! Although with all of the pandemonium, I'm still trying to figure out what part of it is a break. Ohhh! Maybe they mean breaking things around the house. In which case, I understand. We're already down a flower pot (my bad), a glass (still not sure who did that) and part of the banister (serenity now).

In the midst of it, my agent came up with this pretty neat idea. I have this novella that I wrote a few years ago for The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance 2. It's not part of any series, but a stand-alone story about a vampire princess who decides to rebel and runs into a hot Scottish supernatural bodyguard. Happens all the time, right? Well, since so many people have e-readers now, we're going to be posting Love Bites up on Amazon as a short story.

I just saw the cover this morning and it's really neat - my first vampire bite-y cover. When it's all approved and ready, I'll be sure to post it here. And while that is in the works, I'm polishing the story as well. There are a few things I want to change after looking at it again (Isn't that always the way?). Plus, a really good friend of mine who writes Scottish historicals (Kimberly Killion - look her up - she's awesome) sat down with me the other night to give our Scottish bodyguard a modern-yet-medieval brogue. He is about eight hundred years old, after all. I really should have done that the first time, because I like it so much better.

It's been a lot of fun - a great way to relax and do something different. So I suppose I'm taking a break this spring after all.

Nice! Nothing like a hot Scottish accent!

Can't wait to see the cover, Angie!

This sounds like fun, Angie! Can't wait to see the cover.

Hot Scottish Vampire. Lol. That's great!

I like Scottish vampires. Just had to get that accent right. But I tell you, this is the perfect spring break project. I recommend smoking-hot vampires as a way to perk up any week.

You had me at "Scottish bodyguard a modern-yet-medieval brogue" ;)

and like Casey, I can't wait to see the cover.
