“Maternal Instincts” by Jeffrey Ricker, published by Untreed Reads, 2011.

Lisa Weiss has a problem. A teenaged employee of her local grocery store is a vampire and he’s bitten her. Now she’s a vampire too. The thing is, though, she’s a married woman, a mother of two. How can she also be a bloodsucker?

The author mines a good bit of humor from the absurd situation while setting up the parameters of Lisa’s new reality. Just after we get situated there’s a complication, but the story ends before even attempting to resolve it. This piece must actually be the opening chapters of a vampire novel that hasn’t yet seen publication.
