Suki59's Fanfiction

A late start, a long shot

I started modeling at 23 in Charlotte, NC, and was told because I was already so old, my career would be short. It only lasted a few decades.

The start of something …

This was an outtake from my first print job in Los Angeles. The client was Parachute. Steven Arnold was the photographer, and Paul Starr, the makeup artist. Sadly, both are now gone. I wrote about this in a book that may or may not be published one day:
“When I look at it, I see a young, naïve girl, hidden behind thick false eyelashes and dark brown lipstick, waiting for her life to happen, and not even realizing what an amazing moment has been captured—the start of her life in L.A.”

I love Fangbangers Anonymous!

While searching Fangbangers Anonymous’ great archive of story recs, I stumbled on another story of mine that was pimped last year and I didn’t even know it!

This one is on Story Recs: At Sea, and in it I’ve shipwrecked Eric and Sookie a la “Six Days, Seven Nights” in a little one-shot called A Guy with Skills.

I wrote A Guy with Skills in response to a weekly one-shot challenge, and later was handed the baton to post the challenges myself, which I did happily for 5 years on The Sookieverse. I wrote quite a few stories based on the challenges, but I’m most proud of inspiring many other fanfiction writers to write, especially new writers. The challenges are still there for all to use and enjoy, so have at it!

Time for a Kindle dealio!

Check out Drop Dead Gorgeous on Kindle for just 99 cents September 1-8 on Amazon! It’s also on sale in the UK.

For those who aren’t familiar with my book, here’s what it’s all about …

Derek Randall had a perfect life as an L.A. supermodel falling in love with Clara Devereux, his dream girl. But when he’s murdered and becomes a vampire, his world is turned upside down by his evil maker, Madeline. He struggles with his new existence, finds help from his nest of brothers, and goes to Clara. They renew their love and hatch a plan that will get him back in the spotlight, but it’s a dangerous game, and as Madeline circles closer, Derek has to choose: his life or Clara’s.

Hey look! My book’s on a horse’s booty!

I’m honored and tickled pink to see the cover of Drop Dead Gorgeous plastered onto a horse’s rump for all to see.

Thank you to North Carolina artist, Kim Attwooll, for Rudy the well-read horse, which is part of The Art of the Horse, a community arts project and fundraiser orchestrated by Our Carolina Foothills, a nonprofit organized to educate the public about the small towns of the Carolina Foothills.

Kim is one of only 12 artists chosen to decorate one of the 15 fiberglass horses which will all be auctioned off on August 19 at the Tryon International Equestrian Center in North Carolina.

Kim’s choice in designing her horse was to honor the rich literary history of the Carolina Foothills by covering Rudy with book covers of works by local authors.

I’m proud to say I lived in the dreamy little town of Tryon, North Carolina, when Drop Dead Gorgeous was published. Kim also used the cover of The Complete Tryon Diary by Susan McNabb (my serious grown-up name), a collection of newspaper columns published in the Tryon Daily Bulletin.

More love from Fangbangers Anonymous!
