Our New Books - She-Vampire of Tempe - Bottomfeeder
The Good News: Simon & Schuster
has bought a third novel in the Casa Dracula
series. I’m delighted. I also received beautiful glossy galleys for my second novel, Midnight Brunch
, so I’m a happy camper.Countdown to the Release of X-Rated Bloodsuckers:
It’s only 11 days to the official release of Mario’s second novel, and the reviews are great. The Barnes & Noble review says: “For fans of genre-blending sagas -- like Jim Butcher's Dresden Files, Charlie Huston's Joe Pitt novels, and Simon R. Green's Nightside sequence -- who enjoy the mélange of mystery and fantasy, Acevedo's novels are an absolute must-read. Equal parts Raymond Chandler, Anne Rice, and Hugh Hefner, these laugh-out-loud-funny, darkly absurdist, and downright addictive novels will makes a fan out of anyone who reads them.”Don’t Complain About Your Crummy Valentine's Day:
In Tempe, AZ, a man showed up for a date of kinky sex. He wanted kinky and he got kinky – the so-called Valentine She-Vampire
, Tiffany Sutton, tied up her date, cut him with a knife, and then drank his blood. No word yet whether she was a member of the space program
working on a movie deal.

Over at Skullring
, Matt Stagg interviews Bob Fingerman
, the author of the darkly comic Bottomfeeder
. Booklist says the book is written in “a punchy, up-to-the-minute urban vernacular that, while it brims with abusive humor, squelches romanticism, provokes other-than-sexual interpretations of vampirism, and helps propel Bottomfeeder to the front ranks of its genre.” I’m adding this to my to-buy list.
