Fans of Stephenie Meyer, I have a new author for you who is even better.

Meet Susan Hubbard, author of a new vampire series, The Society of S .
"If you ever want to hide from the world, live in a small city, where everyone seems anonymous." That's the advice of 12-year-old Ariella Montero, who lives with her father in Saratoga Springs, NY, in a house haunted more by secrets than by memories. THE SOCIETY OF S traces her journey south, to Asheville and Savannah, and on to Florida, as she learns that everything she knows about her family is a lie.

Set in Saratoga Springs, Savannah, and Homosassa Springs, FL, THE SOCIETY OF S traces a year in the education of thirteen-year-old Ariella Montero. Under the influence of Keats, Bertrand Russell, T.S. Eliot, and Jack Kerouac, Ari learns that she isn't "normal," and that sometimes the only way to find home is by running away.

Learn more about Ariella and the Society of S here.

THE YEAR OF DISAPPEARANCES ($25 Signed) continues the most surprising vampire story you'll ever read.

Ariella Montero is no stranger to the dark side of life. Half-human, half-vampire, she spent her first thirteen years in exile from both societies.

When her best friend was murdered, Ari ran away to begin a new life in Florida. But, one by one, the people and things she cares most about keep disappearing. And Ari may be next.

She can hypnotize, read minds, and make herself invisible, but can she escape her stalkers? 
special talents are severely tested as she moves on—from a vampire community in the Sunshine State to college in Georgia to the primeval maze of the Okefenokee Swamp. In contending with the politics of vampire and human cultures, Ari comes face to face with the zombies that are infiltrating America, as well as the demons and shadows that haunt us all.
