Rust City Book Con 2017

Sara Dobie Bauer mixes goth glam with silly sex in the Bite Somebody series

Did you hear the joke about vampire books? They’re dead? No, no, they’re undead. Get it? I realize there are a million vampire books out there—some bad and some good. I know this because I’ve read all of them. What makes the Bite Somebody series different? Well, they books are funny, for one. As opposed to the pale, tragic vampires of lore, my vampires are drinking, cussing, breakdancing weirdoes who’ve been known to decapitate by way of garden shears when not stealing statues of the Virgin Mary.

In Bite Somebody, when Celia bites her first human, she accidentally bites the guy a bunch of times. (“What do you, stutter bite?”) In Bite Somebody Else, when Imogene starts falling in love with the wrong guy, she watches Reanimator because exploding eyeballs are “soothing.” These aren’t your usual bloodsuckers, and they want to be friends with you.

When not writing about vampires, I’m writing about love in its many iterations. I just love writing about love. (And sex—I do love writing about sex.) I’m thrilled to be a guest author at Rust City Book Con 2017 in Michigan. I attended last year’s shenanigans, as well, and I not only acquired some new bloodthirsty fans, but I made amazing friends who seem to enjoy the little freak in me. I hope to see you there. Just look for the girl with the fangs, walking around saying, “I vant to suck your blood heh heh heh …”


About Bite Somebody:

Celia is messing up this whole immortality thing. According to her moody vampire friend Imogene, the only way she’s going to get beyond her awkward, lonely existence and start living her immortal life is to just…bite somebody. A sexy new neighbor enters the picture, and just when Celia thinks her fairy tale ending may be in sight, her jerk of a creator rolls into town and causes big trouble.

About Bite Somebody Else:

Imogene may have played matchmaker for Celia and her adorable human, but she is not pleased when the newbie vampire drops her latest atomic bomb: she may have a blood-sucking baby on the way. To top it off, Lord Nicholas Christopher Cuthbert III, an ancient, annoyingly gorgeous vampire historian, shows up to monitor the pregnancy and puts Imogene’s self-control to the test. 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 an unexpected guest turns up to expose his true intentions.
