This Is So Scary I Have To Wishlist It!

I'm reading a V.C. Andrews novel right now. Please don't tell anyone. I'm really ashamed of myself for picking it up, but it was given to me!!

It also got me looking at the books that were ghostwritten after Ms. Andrews passed away in 1986!! Yes, she died more than 20 years ago and this dufus is still putting out bad novels in her name.


Most of the novels that carry her name were ghostwritten. She only wrote 8.

Oye vey.

But this book is due out in Oct and it just looks so bad that I have to read it.

Book Blurb: When I was a little girl, Daddy told me never to fear the dark. “We exist because of the darkness,” he told me. “All of you are daughters of darkness.”Beloved bestselling author V.C. Andrews’s passion for vampires comes to spellbinding life in a long-awaited novel of dark desires as all-consuming—and forbidden—as in Flowers in the Attic. One night, with the sound of a young man’s scream, high school senior Lorelei discovers that her stern but loving father, who adopted Lorelei and her sisters as infants, is no ordinary man. He has raised his beautiful girls for one purpose: to lure young men into their world of shadows. Like her sisters, Lorelei has been trained in the art of seduction and warned never to fall in love. But when she meets a handsome and charming classmate, she boldly defies her family and follows her heart—even if love is a poison

Unbelievable! The ghostwriter is going all vampire on us! How very interesting, and horrifying.

I feel really sorry for V.C. Andrews, that her own legacy of weird novels is being tainted by stuff like this.

That is too funny...but it just shows how some authors have either jumped on - or been pushed on - the vampire band wagon.

Last I heard the ghostwriter under the name VC Andrews was a man. :)

Michelle: I think the guy's name is Andrew Neidermeyer (sp). I've been a bit scared of the books that were released after her death. I can't see VC Andrews ever having gone the vampire route. This guy should be ashamed of himself!

I can't believe people/publishers are allowed to publish books with somebody's name on who has had nothing to do with that book! I'd turn in my grave if that happened to me!
