Blue-Blooded Vamp

So it’s Tuesday, and if you spend any amount of time hanging around places where authors congregate, you might know that Tuesday is a very important day for book people. It’s important because it’s the day when most book stores lay out new stock, a.k.a. release day.

This particular Tuesday happens to be the day that many booksellers will likely be laying out my new book.* But it’s not just the release of any Jaye Wells book–it’s the fifth and final book in my Sabina Kane series.

BLUE-BLOODED VAMP represents the culmination of five years of work. Maybe that doesn’t sound like a lot of time to authors who have series with 13 or 20 book, but since this is the first series I’ve ever written, it’s significant to me. I have learned so much about myself and about being a writer and about the craft of writing writing these books. I’m proud of them.

It’s also, I hope, significant to the readers who have followed Sabina and the rest of Team Awesome through a lot of crazy shit. Everything from kung fu battles in convenience stores to surprise orgies to trippy voyages through dream lands and battles with Avenger demons. There’s not a lot they haven’t been through together.

I like to think my readers and I, we’ve been through some stuff together, too. Granted, we’ve never faced down a psychopath who killed our sister together, but book signings can sometimes be kind of stressful and don’t get me started in the treacheries involved in blog tours. Plus, these days with everyone so busy, it’s a gamble and a commitment to give a new writer a try. It’s a commitment to try an untested series. Thank you all for reading the books and talking to your friends about them.

Yeah, BLUE-BLOODED VAMP is a special book to me. It marks the end of one chapter in my writing career and opens the door for a new one. Soon enough, you and me, we’ll have a nice long chat about what’s coming, but for now, I want to sit down together in a cozy spot so I can tell you the end of this epic tale. Thanks for taking the journey with me. It’s been one hell of a godsdamned ride.

The epic conclusion to the amazing Sabina Kane urban fantasy series.

Sabina Kane is on the hunt. Her prey: Cain, the father of the vampire race and the one who murdered her family and her friends. Unfortunately, Cain is hunting Sabina, too.

The one man who holds the key to defeating Cain is, of course, Abel. A mage with secrets to spare and, hopefully, the power to match it. Unfortunately, for Sabina, he’s in Rome and may not want to be found.

Sabina sets out for Italy with her friends, Giguhl and Adam Lazarus, to track down the only man who can get her the revenge she hungers for. But will he help her or oppose her? And just who is Abel, really? Worst of all, when Sabina figures out the goddess Lilith has a plan for her-she realizes this trip is getting deadlier by the minute. As they say: when in Rome-SURVIVE.

*If your bookstore doesn’t have it out today, they might be waiting for the official release date–June 1, but for the most part the big guys are all releasing it to the wild today.

    We salute you, Sabina!

  4. Congrats! I haven’t read the Sabina Kane series yet but it sounds so good. I’m definitely adding it to my reading list. I kinda like getting in at the end of the series so I don’t have to wait for the next book…I can read them all as fast as I want. LOL

    I actually shed a tear or two when I heard that this was the final book in the series. I picked up this book because I wanted to read something. The title “Red-Headed Stepchild” caught my eye because I’m a natural redhead, and the cover looked amazing. When I read the summary, I knew I had to read it, so I checked it out, and have been a fan since then. Ever since I read RHS a few years ago, it’s the only book I recommend to my friends, unless they want to read one of MY personal unpublished works, in which case, I give them a copy. I have to say that Sabina is one of the best dynamic characters I’ve ever read about, and Giguhl is the funniest character I’ve ever laughed at. I could read one of his witty comebacks and laugh so hard that I cry and hyperventilate. I love these books, and I’ll read them over, and over, and over, and over until they fall apart. Then I’ll get a kindle and buy the books. Thank you so much, Jaye, for giving me something to read that isn’t crap like these other supernatural books. I bet that if these books were movies they’d be a huge blockbuster hit.
    Much Love!

    I just wanted to say that this series was amazing! Although I am distraught that one of my favorite series has ended this was a wicked way to end such an amazing series of books and I wish other established authors could learn from you (here’s looking at you LKH) but honestly some of the best books I have read and Sabrina kicks arse!
