Book Description:
A popular teen is bitten by a vampire during a steamy night of making out with her boyfriend. After the bite, she wakes up in a cruel orphanage in Vampire World, with no memory of her past. She’s left with very little; only fangs, pale skin and a keen desire for blood.

Marissa, who’s named Janice in Vampire World, escapes the ghastly orphanage thanks to Mr. John FreeCut, an old, benevolent vampire who adopts Janice because he wants to foster children he could never have. He says her parents died in a crash. Beautiful, innocent and thrust into an enigmatic world she has no memory of, Janice must face many challenges. The grueling blood hostess job. The multiple stalkers and creepers who are hungry for her and her blood. The dizzying fireball competition. And most challenging, the fact that she doesn’t look or act like a vampire.

Janice is emotionally overwhelmed. Thankfully she makes some friends, including Brett BloodCut. Brett and Janice are immersed in a passionate romance, and Brett helps Janice adjust to her new world by giving her the love, confidence and knowledge she needs to survive as a vampire. Janice finds a way to succeed in such a problematic world. Things go well for Janice, though not for long. A stranger knows the truth about her past.

Slowly but surely Janice discovers the truth that she is being lied to by the ones she loves. She must learn the secret behind TriFang, and ultimately accept the stinging reality that things are not always what they seem. Could the truth ever be so bloody?

Author character interview with Janice FreeCut

1. What is your name?

My name is Janice FreeCut.

2. Where do you live?

I live in Vampire World. I can’t remember anything about my past because I was involved in an accident. All I know is that my parents were killed and I survived. I lost my memory.

3. How are you holding up?

I’m doing ok. It just feels weird being a vampire. I almost feel like I lived somewhere else many years ago, though I can’t put my finger on it. I don’t know what to say. I do love drinking blood though!

4. Have you met some friends or family in Vampire World?

Yes. I was adopted by Mr. John FreeCut, an older vampire who serves me the best bloodburgers in the world! He is kind and friendly, though kind of mysterious. I have made some really cool vampire friends my age as well, including a very “special one” named Brett Bloodcut!

5. Tell me about Brett. Are you all dating?

Brett is “amazing!” We are in a long term relationship, and he is freakin awesome. Before I met him, I went on some lousy dates with some jerks vampires who cared more about their own blood then me. Now it feels great to find someone who actually cares about me.

6. Are you working?

Yes! I have the greatest job in the world at a place called Vampire Supermarket! It has some amazing vampire clothes with 3-D special effects!

7. What goals do you want to accomplish in the future?

I want to win the Fireball Tournament, get a live moving, 3-D tattoo, and fit in more in Vampire World. And I want to find out why this mysterious masked stranger keeps coming to my bedroom window and telling me he knows a secret about my life that I need to know!

8. That stranger sounds creepy! What do you think he wants to tell you?

I have no clue! He’s getting annoying though. And Mr. FreeCut never sees him!

Thank you, Janice, for the interview.

About the Author
I am from New Orleans, Lousiana and I write young adult novels, fantasy and science fiction. My new novel, Vampire World, is now available. If you enjoy reading paranormal YA fiction, please check this out now.

The Magical Tale of Eliza Felding, Book 1 of a trilogy, takes place in New Orleans one year after Hurricane Katrina. It involves teens, romance and tons of magic.

The Secret of the Dogs is a children's book about four very different dogs (a Basenji, a Greyhound, a Pomeranian and an Airdale Terrier) who go on a quest to rescue a young boy that is being abused by his father.

I love writing, teaching, storm chasing, traveling and drinking orange soda.
