“THE BEST VAMPIRE CHICK LIT OF THE YEAR...Davidson’s prose zings from wisecrack to wisecrack.”—Detroit Free Press

As if she needed yet another reason to shop, Queen of the Vampires Betsy Taylor is in the middle of planning the perfect wedding to drop-dead gorgeous vamp Eric Sinclair. And she’s not about to let little things like death and blood-drinking get in her way.

But all is not bouquets and bridal showers—Betsy is plagued by ghosts who demand her help in rectifying their past mistakes, and a serial killer is on the loose. With his victims all being tall, blond women, Betsy fits the profile exactly…

“A lighthearted vampire pastiche…a treat.”—Omaha World-Herald
 
“Seventh heaven for the fans.”—Kirkus Reviews

“MaryJanice Davidson is a refreshing voice to both the romance and vampire world of writing…I cannot recommend her enough!!”—Paranormal Romance Reviews

Talking with MaryJanice Davidson

Q. Do you really have a shoe fetish like Betsy?

A. No! Strictly a Payless “buy one pair get the second pair half off” girl. I can’t see spending that much money on something I will walk through who-knows-what in!

Q. How do you come up with your ideas?

A. A long time ago a teacher told me “see what’s out there, and then write what isn’t.” I really enjoy putting extraordinary characters in ordinary circumstances and then watch them handle them as regular people would have to.

Q. What other genres are you interested in pursuing?

A. I love murder/mystery. I have some ideas for projects outside contemporary/paranormal romance and I hope I get a chance to try them out.

Q. Why cyborgs, vampires, werewolves, etc.?

A. I love to read these kinds of stories myself, but all the characters seemed so dark and monotonous—same kind of personality, very unapproachable. My characters are all just regular people thrown into extraordinary circumstances, then they have to face ordinary challenges just like the rest of us but from a completely different perspective. Can’t find a parking space, need a job, etc. Don’t you think this is funny?!

Q. Are you going to write more Undead books?"

A. Absolutely! I've got the series plotted out through book five, and hopefully I'll be able to write even more than that (it depends on my publisher and, of course, the readers!).
