DUCK DYNASTY in books?. . .You Got To Be Kidding Me!!

 

 

Wal-Mart.

And this is where my rant begins.

Wal-Mart.  Book aisle.  Best-Sellers.  Duck. . .Dynasty?

And right then and there I could’ve Quacked all over myself!

(UGH!!)

So far I’m a little peeved about Duck Dynasty actually having a published book. . .wait!  I think they’ve got four??  So what to make of this. . .I really don’t know only to say that I’m rather disappointed with the publishing industry for even considering giving Duck Dynasty book deals.  Duck Dynasty, and IMO, is like the Macarena, is like Kato Kailen, is like Gangnam Style (love the song, btw!), and last but not least, like every “one-hit wonder” that has existed on the face of this earth for more than 15 minutes or less. . .Duck Dynasty is exactly this “a one-hit wonder” where I’m in it for the long haul.  So now I ponder:  Is the publishing industry selling out?  Has the publishing industry actually gone mad?  I mean do I have to be on a reality TV show just to get a book deal myself? 

 

(Hmm. . .Maybe I should grow a beard and slap on some daisy dukes?)

 

It saddens me to think that there might be some truth about today’s publishing industry opening more doors for reality TV celebs and not necessarily for those “non” meaning us struggling authors.  You mean to tell me that reading about a TV celeb is more interesting than reading a good, GOOD story?  And if so, does this mean that authors are becoming extinct because publishers (and agents) would rather deal with a “one-hit wonder” and not necessarily a career author? 

 

Well if this is the case, then I’m screwed, literally! 

 

And if this is the case, there’s no need for me to continue ranting and raving on.  I’ll just save my keystrokes for something more purposeful than to waste it on a sitcom that will be forgotten faster than it was conceived!

 

Duck Dynasty. . .yeah right!  I think I’ll find more pleasure watching Kim and Ray J getting it on!  bth_ray_j_kim_kardashian

(ooh, la la!)

. . .And as usual

I forget to summarize what LAST BITE! is all about.  So here it is. . .

 

Soon-to-be sixteen Samantha Samm has three things going for her:  A pulse.  A reflection.  And an appetite.

 

And Sam will do anything to keep it that way!

 

But cursed to become a vampire whether she likes it or not, Sam will find every excuse in her human conscience to avoid becoming the undead.  And since Sam is already faced with a deadline toward eternal death, not to mention, orphaned and the biggest loner in a town of egotistical vampires, the odds against Sam staying human are inevitable that is until pulse-pounding, warm blooded handsome, James Reinhardt walks into the kitchen of an all-girl’s foster home and finds her choking on a cookie.

 

Now determined with the idea of staying human for James will become Sam’s biggest challenge.  But living amid thirsty bad boy vamps in hip-hop gear, bad valley girl vamps who resemble the likes of snapping gators in a Louisiana swamp and a pretentious foster sister who wants James to herself isn’t exactly helping Sam’s quest.  And just as Sam thinks things couldn’t get any worse, James reveals a bloody secret tied to her curse that may just as well have her ditching love for those set of fangs! 

 

LAST BITE! is a YA Paranormal novel, and book I in a IV book series.  FIRST BITE!  will be due out soon, hopefully before I sprout another grey hair!!
