Still Sucks to Be Me Release

Celebrate the Launch of Still Sucks to Be Me with Author, Kimberly Pauley!

Two years ago, we released Sucks to Be Me, the hilarious story of a girl whose parents are vampires and who has to go through vampire training classes to decide if she wants to be a vampire too. The book debuted to much acclaim, including being awarded an ALA Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers, and being called the best vampire novel out there for teens, according to NPR’s Margot Adler. Fans have been clamoring to read what happens next to this eccentric vampire family ever since.

Well, the wait is almost over! Still Sucks to Be Me is comes out May 11 and in celebration of the launch, author Kimberly Pauley wants to hear from you! She’s hosting a fantastic contest with tons of prizes, including an epic grand prize of an author visit to your house, school, or library. Check out the details on her website.

(P.S. NPR’s Margot Adler said of Still Sucks to Be Me: "I couldn’t wait to get a hold of the sequel, Still Sucks to Be Me. When it came out, I devoured every page. For those who love the genre, yet are tired of tragic, Byronic lugubrious vampires, this is truly a unique and hilarious read."
—Margot Adler, author of Drawing Down the Moon and NPR correspondent.)

Praise for Sucks to Be Me

"Pure wish fulfillment."

"The adolescent vampire novel gets a pleasantly light, bizarrely heartwarming treatment in this novel . . . It’s an unusual mix, a welcome change from all the darker, angsty teen vampire novels around these days, and a very promising first novel."

"The lively pace, amusing tone, and accessibly non-gory vampire plot make this an ideal summer beach read, particularly for horror fans who may appreciate a lighter look at the path toward immortal bloodsucker."
