Welcome to The Wormhole and my day on the tour.
It is my pleasure to feature:
Peg Pierson and Flirting with Fangs.

Peg Pierson is a full-fledged Fang Fanatic and slightly deranged Halloween Enthusiast, with a closet full of plywood coffins, an assortment of plastic dismembered body parts, and of course…skeletons.

Currently, she lives in Minnesota and is busily typing away on a new paranormal comedy. Along with vampires, she loves her family, pecan kringle, and a good laugh.

Flirting with Fangs
Peg Pierson

Vampire romance novelist Bailey Hamilton thinks her life is over. Her two-timing husband dumped her, she has a paralyzing case of writers’ block, and her big toe is bleeding.

Torin Kane, fictional Vampire Hero, is miserable. Chapter after chapter he has battled dragons, demons, and despicable villains, but his secret desire is to find true love and a tan. 

With a twist of fate, their worlds collide. A magical teardrop summons Torin to life. And Bailey finds herself face to face, with quite literally, the man of her dreams….                      

Bailey stared incredulously at the mirror. She saw her own tie-dye shirt, damp brown hair, and big blue eyes. She lifted moist palms to the fake Torin’s chest. So did her reflection.
                Dumbstruck, Bailey watched in the mirror as her palms splayed the air like a mime caught in an invisible box. She could have picked her nose, stuck out her tongue, or popped a zit. And she would have been able to see it all just fine.
 Because Bailey realized, in one earth-shattering, life changing moment, that the singing telegram guy was indeed a real vampire. 
Not just any old vampire, but her vampire, Torin Kane, the dark warrior hero she had created from the deepest and most secret corners of her heart. The vampire she’d spent countless hours with over the last six years, bringing to life for herself and her fans, over and over again on the pages of her novels.
Trembling, Bailey took a step back. Her mind reeled. Heat swept her cheeks, and her stomach lurched.
Richard had broken her heart, and he was only a man. The knowledge of what could happen to her heart in the arms of Torin Kane, dark warrior, shook her to the core.
Because Torin wasn’t just a man…and he wasn’t just a vampire. He was quite literally, the courageous vampire hero of her dreams.

My thoughts:
Fantastic!  Original! I was hooked from the excerpt, but had no idea how wonderful the story truly would be.  The author is a craftsman of her trade.  I was thrilled with the world created for the "book characters."  The visual of a host of storybook characters sitting around awaiting the summons to their book is priceless.  The author is descriptive and the story plays through the mind like a movie.
The characters are fabulous.  Each one has been carefully thought out and cleverly created.    The plot is original and well done.  Reading Flirting with Fangs was refreshing and entertaining.   

Tour wide give away one print copy and 3 digital copies of Flirting with Fangs.
