Get a review copy of LUST FOR LIFE!

The countdown begins! There's exactly one month left until the official release of Lust for Life, the fourth and final novel in my adult WVMP RADIO vampire series.

Lust for Life just received this stellar review from RT Booklovers magazine:

Smith-Ready’s final WVMP Vampire Radio book brings this addictive series to a thrilling close. The eclectic mix of music, OCD and vampires has given this terrific series a truly unusual edge. Former con woman Ciara Griffin has remained a compelling character whose skills have been put to the test. -- 4.5 stars (out of 4.5 stars)

I'm sad that after all these years it's finally ending, but I'm very excited about how it ends and can't wait for you all to read it!

My publisher, Pocket Books, feels the same way, so they will be sending out finished review copies just a little over a week from now. If you'd like to receive one, please fill out the form below by noon Eastern time on Monday, November 5. US addresses only.

Reminder: Be sure to check out Book 3.5, the novella "Let It Bleed," before reading Lust for Life. It's available as a free download in all formats here on the website. "Let It Bleed" also contains an exclusive look at the first chapter of Lust for Life, which I'll also post on the website tomorrow or next week (hurricane Sandy permitting).

If you're a fan of the series, I would ask that you seriously consider (please please please) buying a copy or getting it from your library. The amount of support I get from my publishers on future books will be greatly affected by the sales of Lust for Life. I would like to keep this crazy writing gig for a long time, and only you can help me do that. Thanks for all your amazing support!

Pre-order from Constellation Books (signed copies--if you want your copy personalized, please order by Friday, November 23 Wednesday, November 21, 5pm Eastern time, and note on the online order form in the comments section to whom you want it signed), Barnes and Noble, or

Books shipped from my publisher will not be autographed, but if you subscribe to my newsletter (see the box on the right sidebar), you'll have a chance to request signed, personalized bookplates when the next issue goes on November 27.

Oh nooooes!

Available only to US residents! Okay, understandable, as postage to Sweden would cost more than the book.

I'll have to go set my heart on something else, I guess.

Thanks anyway.

Thoroughly enjoyed the first 3 and can't wait to read the fourth. Also, this means I can point the customers in the bookstore in your direction!

Already have my copy on preorder, but will still love an advanced peek. Thanks!

I sent my request for a review copy *fingers crossed*
It is kind of bitter-sweet, I have been waiting for the next installment but sad that it is the last one.

I reviewed the others direct for you, so I am hoping that I will qualify for this one too. As even though I don't currently have my review blog going, I do share reviews on Gooders, Facebook, Twitter, and by word of mouth!

That should say Goodreads.

I can't wait. I've been following this series for a few years. Absolutely on autobuy at this point. I was bummed when the novella went e-book, but I still bought it.
