About this author

I have a confession to make.

(Additional note: If you love me or are as excited about the new series as I am, you can preorder it from Amazon here or from Barnes and Noble here... I'd be happy to link to other preorder sites, but those are... Read more of this blog post »

“Eric: But you already know...

Greta: Well, yeah, but I still want us to have The Talk. All daughters get to have The Talk.

Eric: Fine. You remember the book "If you give a Mouse a Cookie"?

Greta: Ye-es.

Eric: It's like that.

Greta: No it isn't.

Eric: No. It absolutely is...

Eric: If you give a boy a kiss, he'll want to touch your cookies. If you let him touch your cookies, he'll want to unwrap them. If you let him unwrap them, he'll want to put them in his mouth. And THEN, if you let him put them in his mouth, the boy will want to pet your kitty. But if you let him pet your kitty, he'll want to see your kitty. And of course, if you let him see your kitty, then he'll want to feed it. And if you let him kiss you, touch your cookies, unwrap your cookies, put them in his mouth, pet your kitty, see your kitty, and feed your kitty, you'll get pregnant unless you make him wear a raincoat on his banana. So it's better if you just kick the boy in the nuts and run over him with the car.

Greta: I don't think that's how The Talk usually goes.

Eric: No?

Greta: No, but it's okay, Dad. I like your version, too.”

Ranata I am really enjoying Staked! Please tell me there's a number 2 in the works?!

message 2: by J.F.

J.F. Yup. Pocket has made an offer on a sequel and I've turned in the initial draft. I'm so glad to hear that you're enjoying the book!



Ranata I finished it today! I loved this book! It was a great story and I loved the point of views of both Tabitha, a new vampire, and Eric, a very flawed character that I rooted for anyway.

I pretty much realized there would be a sequel considering how you left the book open at the end. And can I say the ending was brilliant? I can't wait to pick up the sequel. Great job, once again!

Ranata Another great read, man! I enjoyed this one almost as much as the first. We got a lot of questions answered and although I didn't like reading from Tabitha's POV, I think it was necessary because at the end, you got to see Eric through her eyes and understand more about her and why she decided to take the vamp route.

Hope there is a part 3!!
