Jane Bites Back by Michael Thomas Ford
And, after over two hundred years she still sucks at it (excuse the pun I could not resist).
Ever the polite lady like woman, she lives quietly running her book shop and only taking enough blood to live on, never killing or turning her victims into undead.
In fact her Vampire existence is definitely not the stuff of films, she has a reflection, no problem with day light, a mild allergy to garlic and lives alone with her tom cat.
On top of that her novel Constance has just received it’s 116th rejection letter.
It would seem that although almost any reference to Austen sells books by the lorry load, while her own work is unappreciated.
Now, this alone would not appear to make for much of a story, even with all the references to current books and authors. So, enter the lovelorn boy friend she won’t commit to.
It is hard to tell the man you love that you are a Vampire and a couple of hundred years older than him.
And, then just to make things worse it turns out her boyfriend is working for the tall dark and handsome bastard that turned you into a vampire in the first place.
This should make you go and find a copy of Jane Bites Back and if not, why not?
I am about to read the next book in the series Jane Goes Batty, I will let you know what comes next as Vampire Jane copes with our crazy world of celebrity and fame.
