Welcome Guest Ellen Schreiber Author of the YA Vampire Kisses Series

I love writing the Vampire Kisses series. The wonderful thing about writing a series is seeing the characters grow, the plots twist and turn, and relationships intertwine.

When I originally wrote Vampire Kisses, I didn't imagine it would become a series. After it was released, I was asked to write a second and third book! I was thrilled!

For Kissing Coffins, I wanted to write more about the back story of Alexander's arrival in Dullsville--that he'd left Romania because he didn't want a covenant ceremony with a girl he wasn't in love with--that girl being Luna Maxwell.

I've always been fascinated with bond between twins and I thought it was cool to explore it--especially if one was born a vampire and one a mortal.

By the seventh book, Jagger and Luna have now become very important characters in the series. Not only do they add conflict, but Raven gets to see a side of the vampire life she hadn't seen before she met Luna. Now that she's also encountered Valentine, Onyx and Scarlet, Raven gets a unique view of the Underworld.

With the upcoming release of LOVE BITES, we will be introduced to Alexander's best friend, Sebastian Camden. Just when Raven thinks she's learned all she can and her vampire adventures might be over, she realizes that they may have only begun.

Raven is always faced with new experiences regarding her true dream--to become a vampire. Is her fangtasticö dream really worth the reality?

You'll have to stay tuned...

Hi Ellen,
I'm one of those people who reads no matter where they go. A couple years ago I was vacationing in Tennessee & bought Vampire Kisses and Kissing Coffins;I fell in love with your series immediately. Then when I came back home I bought Vampireville and Dance with a Vampire. I love Jagger he's so wicked, and Valentine makes me think of the kid from the movie Pet Sematary that looks at his dad & says,"no fair." Downright freaky! Love it, don't stop writing.

I loved the first 4 books. Haven't got to read the others because I let my son's girlfriend borrow the series (she never reads) and I haven't gotten them back yet.
Keep up the good work and hope you come to my area soon- Lexington/Cincinnati area

Okay I have to admit I'm a huge fan of the VAMPIRE KISSES manga series. I own the 2 in the series, but of course I'm missing this volume xD. I'm upset that they changed the artist (yet they still call her/him REM) but I still am dying to the next installation! :D

I'm a follower both on the blog and on twitter :)
