I loved going back to Morganville with The Dead Girls’ Dance, and definitely won’t be waiting long to read Midnight Alley, and the rest of the Morganville Vampires books. Do yourself a favor and pick these books up!
Rachel: The Morganville Vampires books had been under option for about three years, but (as so often happens) nothing was moving forward on them, and I had a discussion with the amazing Felicia Day (of Geek & Sundry) about possibly developing the concept as a digital series. She’d had such success as a creator in taking her work direct to her fans via YouTube, and really blazed a trail for so many others to follow. In fact, in many ways, she predicted the success of digital content way before anyone else did. So it was really that conversation that got things in motion! Plus, she introduced me to Blake Calhoun, who became my partner and director!
I enjoyed The Morganville Vampire books, even though I’m way outside the intended demographic. I think it’s safe to recommend them to any fantasy fan that needs a break from their usual faire. I definitely recommend them to our teenage readers. I would advise parents read to them first, especially if your young one is under 15 or 16. There is some suggestive content, but all of it well within a PG rating. There are 7 of these books out now, with #8 on the way. I hope Penguin plans on publishing the rest in the 2 for 1 package, for it makes it a worthy purchase.
Fans of the Morganville Vampires books by Rachel Caine will be thrilled to know that the first book, Glass Houses, has been turned into a web series that went up this week! And to top it off of Buffy fame is among the cast! KRL took a moment to chat with Rachel about the web series this week as it was going up on Geek and Sundry.
