A while back I read a bunch of vampire-related short stories and one that stuck with me was set in the same world (by the same author, of course) as someone called 'Queen Betsy'. I was intrigued enough to remember it.
Last week Audible.com ran a sale offering the first books in selected series for $5. I was all over that like lint on a cat sleeping under a dryer vent. One was 'Undead and Unwed' by MaryJanice Davidson, which I was interested to see was the first book with Queen Betsy.
So far, it's a lot of fun. Betsy comes across as a Valley Girl (you remember them? But wait, she's from Minnesota!)) but instead of irritating me, it's been funny. I am only 3 hours into a 9 hour reading, but I am thinking this would have been worth full price.
Edit: Total change of subject, but it seems I can't see the words 'Shutting Down' without hearing the turrets in Portal. I am such a geek.
