Hello. My name is Susanne Leist. I'm the author of The Dead Game Series.

The Dead Game, Book One of The Dead Game series, brings fantasy and surrealism to the classic murder mystery with dead bodies, suspects, and clues. It offers vampires, vampire derivatives, and a touch of romance to spice the motley mix.

The story continues in Book Two, Prey for The Dead, as The Dead vampires use an exclusive club in Disney World to infiltrate the rich and famous. As The Dead grow in power, not even the bright sunshine of Florida can weaken them. Linda and her friends join forces with human vampires--known as hybrids--to defeat the evil threatening to control Oasis. A masquerade ball and a romp through the tunnels beneath the town lead to a showdown in s

Blogs, websites, and social sites like Google and Twitter should be ready and waiting. Summaries and bios should also be prepared in advance. After the book is released, it should be announced everywhere with bold pictures and words. People will be ready and eager to read it. That's my goal for my next book, which will be the second book in The Dead Game series. Good luck!(less)

I wanted to incorporate all of this into my book. My mind moves quickly and so does the plot. It has twists and turns. It ends with a cliff hanger. But there will be a second book. I hinted at it by ending with "The end for now..." (less)

(via HEAR THEM ROAR)

Tigers pace in their cages,

Waiting to be set free.

Animals fill the basement.

An awful sight to see.


Leashes jangle against bars.

Metal against metal rings loud.

As the gates slowly lift open,

Pointy teeth glisten without sound.


This cannot be happening.

This cannot be so.

No way are there tigers

in the basement below.

I enjoyed reading this book. The writing is crisp without grammatical errors. I love masquerade balls, and this one doesn't disappoint. The characters stay true to the original Pride and Prejudice. It is a sweet love story.

Hi, I'll try my best. I'm in the middle of reviewing three books and writing my second one.


Susanne Leist Hi Clare,
I've been reading a lot of books this summer but just forgot to add them to Goodreads. I read the trilogy by Deborah Harkness. They were great except for the last book. Now I'm reading Brad Meltzer's latest book. I'm waiting for Linda Fairstein's new book to come in the mail.
Thanks for pointing this out for me.

Mary Simmons I am an muse to a fantasy writer. I promote him and learn as much as I can about the art of publishing these book series. Your search has ended. Moonwarriors is the very best Vampire vs werewolf series on the market. You may be interested in this werewolf writer, which is on facebook/goodreads and he is very down to Earth kind of man. Send him a friend request to Rusty Nugent and you can like Author Rusty Nugent group. Take it easy and let me know if you like Rusty's book series. You get many transformations of heroic werewolves vs evil vampires, and many battles between the both of them. There is a lot of blood and guts. The books are Dark Fantasy with Horror and Romance elements. Thank you for your support. Lets become friends, send me a friend request.


Daniel Pearson Susanne: Really enjoying your book and almost finished reading it.
I am on Florida at the moment with almost no communication. I will contact you this Friday to send you my review to look over before I post it. My apologies for the delay.
Best regards
