More About the Author
In what little time is left she watches anime and updates her blogs, all from a crooked Victorian house in Villisca, Iowa. Between her husband and her pets, she is never lonely, and should she ever disappear one might look for her on a beach in Tahiti, sipping a tropical drink and wearing a disguise.

Anyway, I'll just share a couple of my favorite tips to give you an idea of the humor you can find here: "Motels will not give you a discount because your friend is 'dead' so don't ask." and "Bottled water isn't only good to drink, it's handy for cleaning up messes; everything from left over carnage to those melted junior mints you accidentally sat on."
In addition to the these tips were bonus tips on how to deal with your vampire. One example of that is this: "It's not that your vampire doesn't want to change into a bat in front of you, it's that they can't, so quit bugging them about it."
I thought this book was original and refreshing. The pictures came out good and the verion had good formatting. It's a quick read which was fun and light-hearted. Sometimes it's good to sit back and laugh, and this book provided a very nice escape for me.
It's short so it's an easy read for 30 minutes or so but nothing special.
As the title of my review indicates, this book was just ok. The main character is Katelina, who is approaching her 30th birthday. Maybe, being published is some kind of mid-life crises for Katelina? This is unclear. But she sets out to provide a list of travel tips so that the rest of us can benefit from her experience. The travel tips range from being very vampire relevant (1. Vampires don't sparkle in the sun; they burn to a crisp. And putting sun block on them won't help.) to just plain travel tips (95. "Don't drink the water" may seem like an old cliché, but it isn't. Don't drink the local water.). And yes, there are 101 of these pearls of wisdom. Once we get to the end of the travel tips, there is another list of 25 tips for dealing with your vampire, being more relevant to vampire life than some of the traveling tips. My favorite: 15. Vampires do not consider rabbits "fast food". And they may not think that joke is funny, either.
These lists comprise of about 75% of the ebook, or up to location 520. Then we get the "sneak peek" of book two in the Amaranthine series, Legacy of Ghosts. The sneak peek is enough of a sample to set up the issues of the book. You see a little vampire politics, a touch of the romantic interest, as well as some other vampire interpersonal (intervampirical?) relationships. I did not try to get the free sample, but I imagine it's pretty close to the same amount of content.
That's about it for the content of the book. I have to agree with another reviewer, Katelina sounds like she's about 12, not 30. She can't tell you if she's in a relationship or not (it's, ummmm, complicated).Read more ›
At the end there is a excerpt from one of her books about the girl and her vampire. It seems very interesting to me, and since I enjoyed this so much, I will definitely be getting those in the near future too!
It's also a cute little companion book, written in the voice of Katelina, a character in the actual author's novels in the Amaranthine series. In fact, many of the snarky tips refer directly to Katelina, Jorick, and events from the novels. Many of the tips are also snarky on a general principle...well, unless you really want to point fingers and name names about certain "sparkley" vampire falsehoods.
If you like Vampire stories or the Amaranthine series, in particular, you WILL enjoy this short jocular companion book...especially if you like quick, giggley/snickering, lists of humorous tips.
Hey, it is what is claimed to be, and it was amusing. AND it was free.
If you were expecting anything else...like a full-blown Vampire Travel for Dummies with loads of logistical details...you didn't read the description. :-)
For exactly what it was...short, list, free, cute, humorous companion to other stories...It's a solid 4. ...could be a 5, but a little more transition to show a few more specific tie-ins...maybe a little more backstory...could have been 5.
But even at a 4 - Come on. It's free. Spend a few minutes. You'll get some grins and giggles from 101 Tips for Traveling with a Vampire by Joleene Naylor and may become curious about the Amaranthine series. For any reader who likes humorous vampire stories, I DO recommend 101 Tips for Traveling with a Vampire.
