Greetings, Loyal Reader!
Just wanted to mention a fine review of Sarah Palin: Vampire Hunter (also at Smashwords) at The Vampire Review, a blog by author Tami Jackson devoted to reviewing vampire-related fiction. She gives SPVH five blood-dripping stars and writes:
GUFFAW when Sarah Palin shows up to make everyone go “crazy stupid” as she shoots vampires, and the town mayor, in the head. Whether you like her or not – you’ll recognize her tone because McGirt recreates her speaking-habits so perfectly you’ll swear Sarah is reading her dialog out loud to you.
I wonder if I could get Governor Palin to record the audiobook for me?
Sarah Palin: Vampire Hunter
Also, last week I finally got my hands on the comic book Steampunk Palin which features cover and several pinups of Palin by Sarah Palin: Vampire Hunter cover artist Brian Denham. The story wasn’t quite what I was expecting — if it is set in the present/near future how exactly is it steampunk? Other reviewers trying to make sense of the story were puzzled too. But Brian’s art alone is worth the price of admission. Check it out!
Greetings, Loyal Reader:
Twinkle launched this week. The story has already received a few good reader reviews and is moving up the charts. For those who missed the previews, Twinkle is my take on the romantic vampire craze, offered as free ebook mini-novel. Here is the Smashwords blurb:
Twinkle. A small town with big secrets. Can Stella find eternal love with her vampire boyfriend Edmund? Will werewolf Jake’s own desire for Stella drive him to a fatal decision? Or will the arrival of a certain famous vampire slayer turn all their lives upside down? Twinkle is the vampire epic you’ve waited for—if you’ve already read all the other vampire epics. Enter Twinkle if you dare!
And here are a few Loyal Reader reviews:
“If you don’t mind a (not so) gentle poke at some of the current vamp romance hype, you’ll enjoy this story.”(Ommadawn)
“McGirt takes on a host of pop culture topics with the kid gloves left in their proper place: on the shelf. The angsty vampire genre receives a ten pound monkey wrench to the gut with hilarious results.” (MT Murphy. See full review on his blog.)
A hilarious romp through the “steamy underbrush” of current pop culture! Well done! (T. Shatzel)
So thank you to Loyal Readers who have tried Twinkle and to my kind reviewers. Now I’m back to work on NOBLE CAUSE!
