The Official Website of Kelly Varesio | Author of Insperatus


Thanks for all the support from everyone!

Let me just say, it is quite the compliment to be told that my book is actually better than Stephenie’s Twilight series. Most people don’t know, and fail to inquire, that I’ve actually never read the Twilight series or ever watched the movie. Most people don’t realize either that I was writing Insperatus around the same time Stephenie Meyer must’ve been writing Twilight, before it was anything at all. The timing of Insperatus’ release seems to be working to my benefit so far, though. Being that I’m from NJ, to hear that Insperatus is being bought around the US as well as in other countries such as Italy, Canada, England, and so on, is the coolest thing ever.

My best advice to possible readers is that while Insperatus is NOTHING LIKE TWILIGHT, if they like that series, they’d like this, being that the genre is similar (although the storyline is set back about 150 years).

Insperatus also introduces a new concept of the vampire as well, one far different from Twilight, Anne Rice’s stuff, and even Dracula. While I decided that the traditional vampiric qualities such as death by stake, injury by sunlight or garlic, and no reflection are things I definitely wanted to include, the vampire itself is treated more like a disease than anything else. Insperatus also includes various other supernatural entities that work within the sub-plots.

Last but not least, I am letting everyone know that I’m doing a little remodeling for my page, here. will be where I post all my blog entries and news feeds, so check back often for updates as to where my upcoming signings will be, what is new with Insperatus, and even inside tips of all sorts.

Before I sign off, lemme just list my upcoming appearances: Saturday, May 9th, I will be doing a little signing at Don’s Bagels in Glassboro, (my friend owns it), and one-on-one chat will be totally available, starting from 12; Saturday May 16th I will be doing a signing at Brenner’s Brew, a coffee shop in Bridgeton, starting at 12 where I will also be reading excerpts from Insperatus; Saturday May 23rd I will be at the Hamilton mall’s Border’s Express doing a signing, also beginning at 12. My next and largest upcoming signing will be the weekend of June 19th, at the huge Wizard World Comic-Con in Philly, where I will also be sketching there as an artist, as well as signing and selling my book among other various artists and celebrities. {Just for a fun side-note, some of my artwork is posted on, under the name mstwennyfaahve–the link is attached on the side page.}

Thanks for checking in–more new posts are coming your way! Be sure, if you haven’t already, to grab a copy of my brain-child, Insperatus!

    Oh Kelly, I’m so so happy for you! I’ve got 2 of my friends reading Insperatus also.

    Hopefully we get to see each other again when we come out there in the summer. We’ll be there from the middle to end of July.

    Your work amazes me.
