Gerry Bartlett figures that vampires are pretty much like everyone else except for the liquid diet.

Eternity or Mexican food? Tough call.

Gerry’s a native Texan and lives halfway between Houston and Galveston. Pictured with her is her late wonder dog, a Bedlington Terrier named Belle.

When she started writing, she was still teaching and used the pseudonym Lynn McKay. You can probably still find her historical and two romantic suspense books for a penny on-line. Now that she’s no longer in the classroom and discovered the fun of writing about vampires, she uses her real name. Too bad some people think Gerry is a boy's name or short for Geraldine. No, it's not. Really.

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

Anyway, I can see I'll have some novellas to write after this book to tell stories about minor characters once Glory is safely married to Jerry. So don't give up on me or on the Real Vampires gang. I'm going as fast as I can. Thanks for your loyalty!(less)

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.
