There Are No Vampires In This Book Posts

Tuesdays are for Teasers!

Maybe I’m a little late for a Teaser Tuesday.   Okay, I’m *really* late.  But late is better than never, right? (Just nod and go with it.)  Here is a little bit from Taryn and the gang’s first adventure.



And since we are on the topic of my favorite best friend/sidekick/goof off, I thought I’d share a song from Aiden’s playlist. It’s one of his favorites. ^_^

Thanks so much to all who have shown support and interest so far. YOU ROCK! We are looking at two weeks until TANVITB goes live! The count down starts NOW.

There Are No Vampires In This Book

Coming SOON, dear Internet, (very, very, soon) is my first novel, There Are No Vampires In This Book.

I may be just a little, teensy, tiny bit excited.  Maybe.

I’d like to introduce you to Taryn Wright- headstrong, dedicated and… complicated. What better way to get to know her than sharing a quote from her trusty journal?




She wasn’t like other girls- not after that night, that thing, took her parents from her. She made it through hospitals, doctors, and therapy by playing by their rules and saying all the things they wanted to hear. But, inside, she held on to the truth.

She knew what she saw.


With her two closest friends at her side, she dedicated herself to a mission. She would train and she would hunt. When the time came, she would be ready. No one she loved would be hurt by one of those monsters ever again

But with high school behind them, new found freedom comes with new responsibilities and new problems. Instead of weapons and self defense classes, she now has jobs and bills. The relationship with her best friend was suddenly shifting into new, scary territories. How could she take down bad guys if she couldn’t get her own life in order?


A mysterious stranger who pops up in suspicious places and throws off all sorts of bad vibes. His face now starred in her regular nightmares and plagued her thoughts in the day. Was she overreacting? Or, was this finally the monster she had been waiting for? As the scars of Taryn’s past rise up to haunt her, she begins to question herself. With her mission faltering and her friendship off kilter, would life ever be the same again?
Would she ever be the same?


Let me know what you think so far and, please, check back soon! I’ll be sharing excerpts and quotes in the days ahead. 🙂
