I’m putting the final touches on my vampire series and have been making pretty amazing vampire portraits for the 100 vamps in my fantasy kingdom. But I thought it would be a good time also to share an (updated) list of the best vampire books I’ve ever read, and those I’d like to read soon. (Scroll down past the images to see my book recommendations).

Taste of Vampire (completed fantasy series)
It took 3 years to finish but I’m pretty happy with the final book in the series and can’t wait to share it. I’m still playing around with new cover art and some bonus chapters, but you can start reading the first book right away, or listen to the audiobooks! The first book has nearly 300 reviews but I’ll focus on the boxset when it’s ready, make sure to sign up for the free books and get access to my VIP/beta readers group.
