Adrienne Barbeau Reminds Us that Love Bites!
A lot of actors try their hand at other crafts - singing, painting, writing - but hands down one of the most successful has been Adrienne Barbeau, who, along with penning her autobiography, There Are Worse Things I Could Do (review here), also wrote one of the decade's best vampire novels, Vampyres of Hollywood (review here). Luckily for us, a sequel to Vampyres, entitled Love Bites, is hitting store shelves on August 31st!
With her customary wit and dead-on satire, Barbeau skewers Hollywood and vamp lit alike, casting the paparazzi as werewolves and certain Hollywood “monsters” as the genuine article.
Ovsanna Moore is a Hollywood siren, horror film legend, and cut-throat producer. She also happens to be a 450-year-old vampyre. In the follow-up to the much acclaimed Vampyres of Hollywood, Adrienne Barbeau paints a wonderfully sly portrait of cinematic vampyres, as well as the nature of celebrity and the entertainment industry. Her “Scream Queen” credentials make her the only author who could combine such a fast-paced, edgy plot with tongue-in-cheek references to the inner workings and vanity of Hollywood. A whirlwind of action, Love Bites is a clever take on vampyres readers will never forget.
