VID6 R2.0The blood farm is gone.  Those behind it have either died, been caught, or are on the run. Time to return to the real world.

Only normal life isn’t quite what Tessa expected. Good thing, because there is no ‘normal’ anymore. She’s different. Her family is different. Her friends are different. The world around her is different. Trying to find her place is not easy.  She wants nothing more than to be a normal teenager and join Cody and his friends on a Friday night out.

Cody wants the trouble to be over so he can get back to living the life he used to with one major addition – Tessa.

Only Ian and Jewel aren’t healing well, Rhia is acting out of character, and Jared keeps tripping over dead bodies. Then there’s David, who’ll do anything to help Jewel… even something he knows he shouldn’t do.

Something is wrong, and once again it’s up to Tessa to figure out what is happening under the surface of this ‘normal’ life.

      Hi Sabeeha!
      Thanks so much for commenting! I swore I’d never write a vampire story but Tessa and Cody are in my blood as much as they are in the readers’ blood now! I do love those two characters! I’m delighted to hear you are enjoying their story as much as I enjoyed writing it. Book 7 is due out next week and book 8 – in August!

      Hi RavenQueen, Vampire in Chaos and Vampire in Crisis are the only 2 up for preorder at the moment. There will be a fourth – possible a fifth in this set. I can only set up preorders for a certain time out. I hope that is how they are listed in itunes!

      Hi RavenQueen,

      The books can be ordered by your library AND bookstore. I’m on most of the library systems in print and ebooks. Vampire in Conflict may not be out yet for distribution but the others are. The new covers are just spreading outward in the distribution.

    Hi Dale,

    Love your books. Huge fan of Tessa and Cody. I can’t wait for the next installment.
    As soon as I finished reading Vampire in Conflict, I’m filled with disappointment that I have no more books to read Tessa’s adventure. 🙂

      Hi Ellie, thanks so much for stopping by and commenting on this book! I do love these books. That’s the only problem with these books – as soon as you finally get a copy and read it – then you have to wait for the next one! So thank you for caring enough to wait. 🙂 I’m hoping for an early new year release!

    Hey Dale I got the first book off amazon for free and loved it so I went and bought the rest. Just finished Vampire in Conflict and was wondering how many more books are to this series I absolutely love them you are a great writer.

      Hi Belinda!

      I’m glad to hear you tried the first book! Even happier that you carried on reading the rest. I’m thinking there will likely be another 4 as I did 5 books starting with the letter D and now switched to the letter C. However, I don’t know that for sure. I think the next book is going to be Vampire in Chaos! 🙂
