No, it's not. Really.

She's still writing her Real Vampires series but is back to romantic susp

The Perils of Publishing

Have you noticed all the articles I have on my website for authors? Some of them deal with craft, some tell how I struggle with the writer’s life. Then there are the whines. Yes, I’ve been cranking out books since the nineties and it takes a toll. If you are an aspiring author or even if you have some books out there, you might want to take a look at some of the topics I’ve hit on through the year

Thanks, Carolyn. I'll be self-publishing it and am trying to finish it now. Now sure it's the absolute last as I still have some ideas that won't let me stop cold turkey. Anyway, sign up for my newsletter at gerrybartlett.com or friend me on Facebook to get the latest on when it will be released. I'm aiming for the next month or two and will have it available in print and e-book, most outlets but not in bookstores, I'm afraid.


Carolyn Storm Please tell me when your last real vamp books comes to Tennessee I don't want to miss it.
