Do you read the small print?
Please help me give her a big welcome.
At the bottom of contracts, those squint-worthy clauses that make many a contract signer wish they had a magnifying glass, are the premise behind Barbara Elsborg's new novel, The Small Print. Released with Ellora's Cave on Friday October 1st. The Small Print Promises to deliver lots of the sexy humor that Ms. Elsborg is known for. I chatted briefly with this busy lady, earlier this week, about her new release. This is what she had to say.
When people ask me who's in 'The Small Print' - I say there's a vampire, a werewolf and a... something else. I can't say what the something else is - or it gives the game away. The whole essence of the story is that Matty doesn't know what she is and nor does anyone else for quite a while. The idea for the story was based on what a vampire would do if he moved into a house and found someone living in the attic. What if the girl in the attic had a right to be there but had no idea the new owner was a vampire? I coupled that with a new twist on the vampire legend and not content with two main protagonists I decided to add a third, a wolfish wolf called Catch. Add a good dollop of humor into the mix, stir well and I hope you enjoy the result.
If you'd like a chance to win a copy of 'The Small Print' - leave a comment on this blog or mine - http://www.barbaraelsborg.blogspot.com/ and I'll choose a winner at random.
Thanks for stopping by, Barbara. Can't wait to find out what Matty is. :)
