Happy Book-Birthday to BITE SOMEBODY ELSE by Sara Dobie-Bauer.
Happy Book Birthday to BITE SOMEBODY ELSE, the much anticipated sequel to BITE SOMEBODY (you remember...that freaking hilarious vampire novel I raved about a few weeks ago???)
To celebrate I am going to post a teaser, links, and a few random facts about Sara (who is a doll, btw). Oh. And because I happen to know that one of the characters was inspired by Sara's muse, Benedict Cumberbatch, I will be using so many Cumber-Gifs. SO. MANY.
(Make sure and read to the end...there MAY BE a snippet from the book...)
Now, first thing is first--a little more about the book!
Imogene helped her newbie vampire friend Celia hook up with an adorable human, but now Celia has dropped an atomic bomb of surprise: she has a possibly blood-sucking baby on the way. Imogene is not pleased, especially when a mysterious, ancient, and annoyingly gorgeous vampire historian shows up to monitor Celia's unprecedented pregnancy. Lord Nicholas Christopher Cuthbert III is everything Imogene hates: posh, mannerly, and totally uninterested in her. Plus, she thinks he's hiding something. So what if he smells like a fresh garden and looks like a rich boarding school kid just begging to be debauched? Imogene has self-control. Or something. As Celia's pregnancy progresses at a freakishly fast pace, Imogene and Nicholas play an ever-escalating game of will they or won't they, until his sexy maker shows up on Admiral Key, forcing Nicholas to reveal his true intentions toward Celia's soon-to-arrive infant.
"Bite Somebody is the Pretty in Pink of vampire stories; fun, self-consciously retro, and not afraid to be goofy. I'll never get the phrase 'Woodsy BO' out of my head. Sara Dobie Bauer knows how to keep a reader smiling." —Christopher Buehlman, author of Those Across the River

For me, it's less about the food and more about the location. Raw oysters taste best at Pearlz in Charleston, South Carolina. Street tacos taste best at The Clarendon Hotel in Phoenix. Coffee tastes best in Florence, Italy. Tikka masala tastes best in my own kitchen.
Favorite song at 16:
Since I was a depressive Rocky Horror Picture Show nerd, probably "I'm Going Home" as sung by Tim Curry ... although "Sweet Transvestite" is a close second.
All time best ever kissing movie?
Dual response, just so I cover all my bases. Best Couple to Watch Kissing in a Movie: Angelina Jolie and Antonio Banderas in Original Sin. Those two are so hot together. Best Movie to Watch While Making Out with My Hot Husband: Movie? What movie? Where am I? What's my name?
NOW...For that teaser I promised.
The scuff of a shoe on tile caught her attention. Imogene turned in time to see a shadow disappear down another hall. Jesus, was the place a maze? She raced around the corner and ran smack into Nicholas's chest. She took a big breath of shocked air and her eyes vibrated in her head, because with that breath, she took a deep breath of him. For a guy who had no scent a couple days before, he now vibrated with mouth-watering echoes of fresh-picked basil, black pepper, and maybe a touch of peppermint. She latched onto the lapels of his suit and shoved her nose against his neck, which made him tense and try to step away. She held on and took steps with him. "What is that?" He shoved at her hands. "Miss... Imogene. I must ask you to desist." She opened her mouth and slopped an oval of saliva onto his neck. "Why do you smell like this?" she muttered against his skin. He wrestled her hands off his suit and held her at arm's length. "It's the way I smell after I've fed." She kept trying to claw for more, but his hands around her wrists were like stone. "But you didn't smell like anything at Celia's house." She stopped talking when she noticed her fangs were out. She was much too old to suffer premature efangulation. "I hadn't eaten in a few weeks." "A few weeks?" "Age adds endurance." He pushed her away with more force than was really necessary, but Imogene was well practiced in heels and didn't falter. She did, however, casually cover her mouth. "Kindly never get that close to me again," Nicholas said. He adjusted his suit. His attitude made her fangs pop back into her head. She pointed her finger. "Don't blame me. I didn't know what I was walking into." She spun around and strutted back into the main foyer.
