OS: Welcome to BA Tortuga!
Hey y’all. I’m BA Tortuga, resident redneck and lover of all things bitey.
I’m so stoked because I’ve added almost 15,000 words to my vampire novel, Long Black Cadillac and it’s releasing from Dreamspinner Press. It’s had some polish, some more background, and now Clay, Vince, Gryph, and Remy are back! To celebrate I’d like to share my top ten scary movies. (Because the wife and I are crazy about horror movies, and it’s fixin’ to be HALLOWEEN. :D)
1 Poltergeist. The original, not the remake. I’m not a remake girl. I saw that movie in the theater and that clown? OMG.
2 Halloween. There’s nothing better than Jamie Lee Curtis with her knitting and clothes hangers, y’all. NOTHING.
3 Deep Blue Sea. SHARK MOVIES ROCK. *ahem* Yes. Sharks. Go sharks.
4 Final Destination 3. Because burning to death while Rollercoaster of Love is playing makes me tickled.
5 The Descent. Talk about girl power and revenge, y’all. Damn.
6 Grave Encounters. Found footage movies are my jam, and this is one of the best. Bonus points for being in an asylum.
7 The Hunger. Don’t ask me how many 1000s of times I’ve seen this. Lesbian numminess and David Bowie, y’all.
8 Creepshow. I’m a huge Stephen King fan, and this one makes me happy in a dozen ways. Mainly for the very end.
9 The Conjuring. Jesus, y’all. This one scared the peewadding out of me.
10 The Haunting of Hill House. Whoa. This is one of the great haunted house movies.
Much love, y’all.
When cop-turned-vampire-hunter Vance is sent to eliminate a bloodsucker from the Louisiana swamps, he figures it’s just another day at the office.
But he has no idea what he’s getting into.
Clay is no ordinary vampire, and the spark he lights in battle-scarred Vance is anything but average. Clay should be the enemy, but Vance is powerless to fight something that feels so right… and so damn good. In Clay’s expert hands, Vance might realize he’s misjudged vampires and that donating a little blood can be sexy as hell.
Clay might even ride to the rescue and save his new love when Vance’s mission goes south and Vance becomes the hunted instead of the hunter. Along with his human familiar, a crazy Cajun named Remy, and the enigmatic older vampire Gryphon, Clay must get to Vance before it’s too late. Then they can find the man who betrayed Vance and take their revenge.
But faced with lies and motives darker than they ever imagined, they’ll have to wade through blood and fight their way to a happily ever after….

BA Tortuga bio:
Texan to the bone and an unrepentant Daddy’s Girl, BA Tortuga spends her days with her basset hounds and her beloved wife, texting her sisters, and eating Mexican food. When she’s not doing that, she’s writing. She spends her days off watching rodeo, knitting and surfing Pinterest in the name of research. BA’s personal saviors include her wife, Julia Talbot and coffee. Lots of coffee. Really good coffee.
Having written everything from fist-fighting rednecks to hard-core cowboys to werewolves, BA does her damnedest to tell the stories of her heart, which was raised in Northeast Texas, but has heard the call of the high desert and lives in the Sandias. With books ranging from hard-hitting GLBT romance, to fiery menages, to the most traditional of love stories, BA refuses to be pigeon-holed by anyone but the voices in her head.
