I’ve been so crazed this fall that I just realized I never shared my cover copy for FANGTASTIC, the third novel in my Vamped series, which is coming from Flux Books in January!  So, without further ado, I’m stoked to present….

“Gina never fails to please, as she strides down the runway of afterlife with just the right mix of humor, make-up advice, youthful lust that never crosses the line, and a kung-fu style all her own. [Fangtastic] doesn’t miss a beat.” —Kirkus Reviews

My Super-Secret Vampire Mission

Can you still be a Fed and fabulous?  When undercover involves infiltrating the club lair of poser vamps killing people in Florida (like real murderers!), the only way to blend in is to stand out.  The job certainly has its upside: five alarm hotties, wicked fashion tips from the steampunk crowd and partnering with my BFF Marcy and my gorgeous, genius boyfriend Bobby.   It helps to have a team behind me when facing the deadliest mission yet, where we might not actually be the scariest things to go bump in the night.

Perks of this assignment: I get to spend a lot of time in clubs and my undercover outfit is smoking hot, with no VPL (visible panty lines for those playing along at home).

Downside of this assignment: I have to offer Bobby to the killers as bait!

“A total delight! Diver delivers a delightful cast of undead characters and a fresh, fast take on the vampire mythos.”

Thank you so much for coming!  I’m pleased to present some blurbs and bonus features on my adult and young adult urban fantasy novels, including a link to a free short story in my Vamped series.  I hope you enjoy!  You can contact me here or sign up for my newsletter.  I love to hear from readers!

Bad BloodBAD BLOOD, Book #1 of the Latter-Day Olympians series

Tori Karacis is a little more than your average private eye.  Among other things, her family line may or may not trace back to a drunken liaison between the god Pan and one of the immortal gorgons. It may be just coincidence that her glance can literally stop men in their tracks, or that her family sports enough irregularities to keep the Rialto Bros. Circus in business.Then again, maybe not.

“Bad Blood is a delightful urban fantasy, a clever mix of Janet Evanovich and Rick Riordan, and a true Lucienne Diver original.”—Long and Short Reviews

VampedVAMPED, Book #1 of the Vamped series

From “Valley Vamp Rules for Surviving Your Senior Prom” by fashionista Gina Covello

#1.   Do not get so loaded at the after prom party that you accidentally-on-purpose end up in the broom closet with the surprise hottie of the evening, say the class chess champ who’s somewhere lost his bottle-cap lenses and undergone an extreme makeover, especially if that makeover has anything to do with becoming one of the undead.

Gina Covello has a problem. Waking up a dead is just the beginning. (Read More)

“Diver uses wit and adventure to hook readers with this teen vampire story.” —VOYA

RevampedREVAMPED, Book 2 of the Vamped series

In ReVamped, Gina and her boyfriend Bobby are sent undercover to infiltrate a New York high school where some seriously weird stuff is going down.  Worse than that, Gina’s new super-secret identity is as goth-girl Geneva Belfry.  No color palette to speak of.  More chains than a bike rack.  And don’t even get her started on the shoes. At least fangs are always in fashion.

“Perfect for teens and adults, this is a book to share, savor and revisit. ReVamped is full of smart, spot-on dialogue, engaging, authentic characters and a plot that’s so much fun it’s impossible not get swept up.” —Examiner.com

FangtasticFANGTASTIC, Book #3 in the Vamped series, forthcoming January 2012!

Gina Covello, heroine of Vamped and Revamped, has to face a cadre of killer kids in this third novel.  Her new mission puts her smack dab in the middle of the sunshine state, bitter-sweet since her tanning options are now eternally non-existent.  She, her boyfriend Bobby, and her BFF Marcy must face off with vampire lifestylers, including the steampunk Burgess Brigade, some of whom have gone rogue and decided to start their own little Manson family.  If that’s not enough to handle, the Feds want Gina to get in good with the true vampires running the clubs the kids frequent to find out what deeper doings might be behind it all.  Only Gina starts to suspect that her own handlers at the spy shop aren’t completely on the up and up and that the bad guys aren’t all she has to investigate.
