Jane Goes Batty by Michael Thomas Ford
February 14, 2011 - Amy Phelps
Get another installment of Jane Austen the vampire in "Jane Goes Batty" by Michael Thomas Ford. Jane Austen's undead life seems to be looking up. She has written a bestseller that is being filmed as a movie, she a successful business owner with great friends (even if Lord Byron shows up once in a while) and her love life is looking up thanks to her relationship with Walter. And "Our Gloomy Friend" hasn't turned up to take her undead revenge. So the life of an vampire is a good one. That is, until a group of romance fans show up in period costume and a Hollywood crew decides to swoop in for DVD extras. That is only a portent of things to come - Walter's mother is coming to visit and expects Jane to be Jewish, or at least willing to convert. And Walter seems to be pushing big time for a possible committment, one that Jane isn't going to be able to give, being a vampire and all. That's nothing to say about a fledgling Hollywood vampire, Lord Byron's continual annoyance, the possibility of "Our Gloomy Friend" showing up at anytime to take her revenge and the fact that Walter's mom just might know what Jane really is. What's a famous novelist turned vampire to do? This is a funny series that will entertain paranormal and Jane Austen fans alike. There's a lot of cheerful wit to enjoy. "Jane Goes Batty" is published by Ballentine. It is $14 and 285 pages long.
