YA Indie Spotlight: V. J. Chambers

Happy Friday, Everyone!
Today, I'm pleased to feature YA author Valerie (V. J.) Chambers on the blog. She's promoting her new YA paranormal romance: Little Sister, A Vampire Novella.

Ever since Jane Cassidy's big brother was killed in a car accident six months ago, she's been taking solace in watching cheesy vampire movies and yelling at the characters on the screen when they do stupid things. She can't control the tragedy in her own life, but in the movies, the characters can find ways out of the grip of death.
A chance meeting with Bailey Westfield, her brother's best friend and her childhood crush, catapults her out of her cocoon of grieving. Bailey's kiss makes Jane feel tugged under a rushing waterfall of cold, sweet darkness. She only sees him at night, and she longs to feel his icy fingers trace the outline of her jaw.
Jane doesn't realize that she's been (literally) sucked into the plot of a vampire movie. And she's not so snarky when there are teeth in her own neck.
RATING: PG for some underage drinking, mild language, vaguely suggestive content of a metaphorical nature (no sex, just good old fashioned blood drinking).
V. J. Chambers decided to chuck the mainstream sometime the spring of 2009. Since then, she’s been publishing her books herself.
Since she’s an indie author, she makes a living teaching high school. She is also fond of snakes, cheesecake, her boyfriend Aaron, Stephen King books, Buffy, and corduroy pants (although not exactly in that order).
She lives in Shepherdstown, WV.
Little Sister: A Vampire Novella is available here for Kindle, and is priced at $.99. The reviews look good, so it's definitely worth the sample if you're looking for a short, entertaining read!  
V. J. has other YA titles out, too, so be sure to browse her bibliography page!
