LITTLE DEAD RIDING HOOD

I am so excited to be a part of the Little Dead Riding Hood blog tour! Mother-Daughter writing team, Amie & Bethanie Borst have written another amazing book in their Scarily Ever Laughter series. 



You know things are going to suck when you’re the new kid. But when you’re the new kid and a vampire… well, it bites!
 
Unlike most kids, Scarlet Small’s problems go far beyond just trying to fit in. She would settle for a normal life, but being twelve years old for an entire century is a real pain in the neck. Plus, her appetite for security guards, house pets and bloody toms (tomato juice) is out of control. So in order to keep their vampire-secret, her parents, Mort and Drac, resort to moving for the hundredth time, despite Scarlet being dead-set against it. Things couldn’t be worse at her new school, either. Not only does she have a strange skeleton-girl as a classmate, but a smelly werewolf is intent on revealing her secret. When she meets Granny—who fills her with cookies, goodies, and treats, and seems to understand her more than anyone—she’s sure things will be different. But with a fork-stabbing incident, a cherry pie massacre, and a town full of crazy people, Scarlet’s O-positive she’ll never live to see another undead day.
 
Not even her Vampire Rule Book can save her from the mess she’s in. Why can’t she ever just follow the rules?

Q: Tell us a bit about your MC, Scarlet.
Amie: Scarlet is a FANGtastic main character. She's funny, a little awkward, hot tempered, and a little self-deprecating. Oh, and she's a vampire.
Q: Does she have any fears?
Amie: Fears? Since when do vampires have fears? Only when you're talking about werewolves, and the dark, and being alone in the woods.
Q: So being a vampire, she must love blood. It's gotta be her favorite meal.
Amie: Yes and no. Only animal blood. She's been banned her entire afterlife from ever drinking human blood again. She mostly survives on Bloody Toms (that's tomato juice) and Cheetoes (made with real cheetas!)
Q: Any last things you'd like to tell us?
Amie: Scarlet has issues with sweets. It's not pretty.
