Some questions answered

Hey all!

Hope you had a good holiday and new year. I did, though in a way I'm glad it's over because holidays are not so good when you're on book deadline like me. I've got less than a month now to finish my book "Moongazer" and get it turned in. I did get some cover art for the book and it looks really cool - like a dark manga novel. Will be able to post it soon, I'm sure.

Thanks to everyone who's written saying they liked Stake That! I'm so glad to hear it!! I get the same questions often so let me try to answer some of them here:

1) Who's the narrator of book 3?

Rayne returns as narrator of book #3, Girls that Growl. But don't worry Sunny fans! Sunny will be back narrating in book 4. (Working title is "See Jayne Bite")

2) When does Girls that Growl come out?

Girls that Growl comes out in October of this year. Just in time for Halloween!

3) How many books are going to be in the series?

Not sure. As many as my publisher will let me write! I have a plotline in my head for at least a book five...

4) Why do I have to wait so long between books?

Authors don't get to choose when their books come out. That's up to the publisher. Plus I also write adult romance books and I have a full time job. Sadly I can't write as fast as you guys read!

5) Can you come to my town for a booksigning?

Again, sadly, I have that pesky full time job so I can't travel very often. I will be going to Texas twice this year though (Houston and Dallas) - in April and July and will be signing books then.

6) How can I get your autograph if you can't come to my town?

If you send me a self-addressed stamped envelope, I can send you a special autographed sticker that can be stuck in the front of the book. And I will personalize the book to you if you include your name. :) Or you can send me your copy of the book and I'll mail it back signed.

Address to send to is: Marianne Mancusi PO Box 8003 Boston, MA 02113

7) Are the books ever going to be movies or books?

There's nothing in the works, but I definitely think it'd be cool if they were! So you never know!!

8) What other kinds of books do you write?

I write adult comedy romances - time travels and such - under the name Marianne Mancusi. I have another website for those:

9) Do you like to read other vampire books?

Yes! I grew up reading Anne Rice and I now love lots of vampire authors including Laurell K. Hamilton, Christine Feehan, Katie MacAlister, Stephanie Meyer, Rachel Caine, etc. etc. I'm always looking for new authors to add to my to-be-read pile.

Okay, that's all I can think of for now! Hope this helps!
