*pant, pant* Sorry! Just *pant* so busy! *pant*

HOLY BLOODBAG, BATMAN!!! Your Auntie Heather has been freaky crazy with the appearances lately! After an amazing evening the other night at Main Street Books in Saint Charles, MO (with some equally amazing teachers, librarians, and authors), yesterday I was a special guest at a Book Battle (which, fyi, is when a bunch of students from 33 different schools in the Saint Louis area get together and compete with book trivia) and met (and re-met) some fangtastic Minions. And today I'm leaving for the Kansas City area for two middle school visits tomorrow (along with a special lunch with some reading competition winners). I'm exhausted! But also having a blast, so don't cry for me, Argentina. :)=

Anyhoo, that's why the blog is sooooooooo quiet, and also why I haven't been on the forum. Life will shortly return to normal (or what passes for normal around here, anyway). Promise.

Book Battle??? Wow, I'd love that, but I wouldn't do good. I make good grades and stuff, but when it comes to quick thinking, I'm a dunce. My thinking speed is that of a snail's... Anyway, Congrats! And make your way down to Louisiana sometime, I would say around Halloween, too. New Orleans is famous for it's awesome haunted houses. ;)

What People Are Saying About 'Eighth Grade Bites'

"A spooky mystery that's funny, gruesome, heartwarming, spellbinding, sad, joyous, surprising and topped off with a tasty blend of blood and chocolate. Yum. What more could you ask for?" ~D.J. MacHale, New York Times-bestselling author of PENDRAGON: JOURNAL OF AN ADVENTURE THROUGH TIME AND SPACE

"'Eighth grade Bites' had me on the edge of my seat. It's a great piece of fiction. It drops you right into the action, grabs you by the throat (pun intended), and won't let go. Vladimir Tod is a truly sympathetic character cursed with an existence not of his own doing, but doing his best to do the right thing. It's part 'Goosebumps' mixed with 'Harry Potter' and a dash – no, a heaping tablespoon – of Stephen King. If you're in eighth grade, or a vampire, or an eighth grade vampire, 'Eighth Grade Bites' is a definite must read!"~Butch Hartman, creator of Nickelodeon's THE FAIRLY ODD PARENTS and DANNY PHANTOM

"Eighth Grade Bites is a terrific vampire tale told with a sharp, middle-school grin. It definitely does not bite!" ~Christopher Moore, author of BLOODSUCKING FIENDS and A DIRTY JOB

"Eighth Grade Bites is a delightful novel filled with dark, biting humor that will appeal to everyone who ever felt they were different. A deft hand at depicting the angst of teen years, Heather Brewer does a wonderful job blending vampire legend with the modern day horror that strikes fear in the heart of so many: the eighth grade."~Katie MacAlister, New York Times-bestselling author of EVEN VAMPIRES GET THE BLUES

"Heather Brewer has invented the most endearing of vampires in Vlad, an eighth grader juggling the woes of adolescence with the decidedly unique difficulties of being a vampire. She perfectly captures the humor and angst of eighth grade, mixed with a nail-biting adventure. Utterly charming and irresistible!" ~Liza Conrad, author of HIGH SCHOOL BITES: THE LUCY CHRONICLES

"This book will fool you. Just when you think you've identified it as a story lit by the cheery glow of a slightly scary jack-o-lantern, it becomes something else -- a tale told by the flickering light of a dying campfire late at night. And the shadows are very dark indeed. A surprising mix of humor and horror." ~Douglas Rees, author of VAMPIRE HIGH

"Fresh and fast-paced, with just the right brew of chills and laughs. I’m looking forward to finding out what happens when Vlad hits Grade Nine." ~Nancy Baker, author of KISS OF THE VAMPIRE

"A fabulous book from a gifted storyteller! I never wanted it to end." ~Gena Showalter, author of OH MY GOTH
