Preview: Silly vampire fun with Upside Down
Just in time for Halloween, Top Shelf has a cute vampire book that’s more treat than trick: Jess Smart Smiley’s Upside Down: A Vampire Tale. You can see a preview of the first few pages at that link; below, we have a bit more of the story. Harold is a cheery vampire who lives in a piano and loves candy, and as you’ll see below, this latter trait gets him into a bit of trouble at the dentist’s office. Check out both previews, and if you like what you see, the book is available for Kindle at a very reasonable price and as a hard copy directly from Top Shelf; watch for it in bookstores and on Amazon next month.
