Nancy Haddock’s debut book from Berkley Publishing Group, La Vida Vampire, was released in April 2008 and hit national bestseller lists. The second book in the series, Last Vampire Standing, will be a May 2009 release. Nancy has written everything from children’s picture books to teleplays, and has finaled in and won numerous contests during her trek to publication. In addition to writing paranormal romantic mystery, she writes cozy mystery and screenplays, and has written an adaptation of La Vida Vampire for a feature-length film – an adaptation that needs a leeeetle more work.
First in a delightfully irreverent new series-and second to none when it comes to beautiful 227-year-old career women.
Being dead isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Take it from Francesca Marinelli, trapped underground for over 200 years and rediscovered during the renovation of a Victorian mansion in historic St. Augustine. A tourist attraction herself, she’s well suited for a job as an Old Ghost Town Tour guide. Francesca’s due for a new lease on afterlife-and with enough sunblock, she can finally live it.
Unfortunately, everything she learned about men is a little dated. And when people in her tour group turn up dead, naturally the police suspect her. After all, she is a vampire. Which is why a crazed vampire-hunting vigilante squad is out to get her as well. Between the dead bodies, the stalkers, and a seriously non-existent love life, she’s starting to wish she was dead. Or at least buried, where she was safe.
Second in the delightful series featuring a vampire princess in the Sunshine State, adjusting to life, undeath, and that brutal Floridian sun.
228-year-old Francesca Marinelli thought her past was dead-then a stranger from the Atlanta vampire nest crashes her home looking for sanctuary. A budding stand-up comic, Jo-Jo’s running from an undead superior eager to drive a stake through the heart of his dream job. But Jo-Jo’s bad jokes aren’t the only dark clouds on the horizon. A psychotic vampire with a murderous agenda has followed Jo-Jo to Florida, putting everyone close to Francesca in danger.
