Hi, Friends!

I’ve been busy writing yet another Real Vampires book and am happy to report I am over halfway done with it. I’m shooting for a Thanksgiving release date. I’ll let you know. In the meantime, I got the cover done by the talented Kim Killion of The Killion Group. As usual, I love it, and I know you will love it too. Why is her hair and her skirt short in 1605? You’ll have to read the book to find out!

thumbnailReal Vampires: Revenge of the Pirates is the fourth in the series of prequels set in the early 1600s that started with Real Vampires: When Glory Met Jerry https://amzn.to/3eJm1mE. I’d always wanted to write Gloriana’s origin story and this was it. If you haven’t read this one, try it! Then there’s Real Vampires: A Highland Christmas https://amzn.to/3Bg1IFk . I had fun imagining Glory in Edinburgh at the court, and meeting Jerry’s parents for the first time. Yes, his mother hated her! The third prequel was an adventure story with lots of action: Real Vampires: Glory and the Pirates https://amzn.to/3d5h3QX .

Once I finished Glory and the Pirates, I wrote another book set in the fifties, Real Vampires: Glory Does Vegas https://amzn.to/3B72ioM . Did Glory really dance topless in Vegas? Jerry wanted to know. Still, I just knew Glory wasn’t done with those pirates and the pirates weren’t through with her. So now I’m working on Revenge of the Pirates. Lots of adventure in this one. I’ll let you know when it’s completed and available for you. Look for my schedule on my Facebook pages and gerrybartlett.com.

Thanks for sticking with me all these years. I appreciate the way many of you have kept asking for more of Gloriana St. Clair’s adventures. Of course, my books are available in paperback for people like me who like to hold a book in their hands.  I’m pretty sure I’ve still got some surprises in store for you. Count on them and always a happy ending! Want to win an Amazon gift card? Email me at gerrybartlett@verizon.net with the subject line Pirates’ Revenge. Tell me the name of Glory’s lover and I’ll put you in the drawing. Deadline: September 30, 2022. Good luck!
