Hot Blood - an epic battle between immortals, from Samhain Publishing

Released today from Samhain Publishing:

Who dares to challenge a vampire?

Two very different immortal creatures have arrived in New York City. One is Tanya Merrit, the last of the Ykrall, a race that lives among--and depends on--human beings.

The other is Janos Wolkran, an ancient and extremely powerful vampire. He has with him a brood of servants, humans that he has converted. But one of his servants is dying. And Wolkran has chosen Tanya's lover, Kathy Harrison, as a replacement. When he kidnaps her, Tanya sets off in a pursuit that will lead her around the world...and into a battle to the death between immortals.

HOT BLOOD is available directly from Samhain and from Amazon, Nook, or Kobo, and also comes as a fine-looking trade paperback.

Read the first review.

I certainly hope so, Crich, because a lot of Hot Blood (not the vampire bit, obviously) is based on personal experience.

Part One of the novel is set in Manhattan and, obviously, I know Manhattan well enough.

But Part Two is set in a fictional Central American country called San Vasquez. No such place, except I spent a while in Nicaragua during the Sandinista-Contra War, even traveled up via military convoy to a garrison outside the border town of Jalapa, and wrote it up for a couple of newspapers when I got home, and so that whole section of the novel is based on those events.

Part Three is set in Prague. I've been there three times.

Part Four starts out in Budapest. I've been there 5 times, since my wife -- a translator -- used to attend a lot of business meetings there. And then it finishes up in the Hungarian countryside, and I have experienced that place too.

It may seem strange that an awful lot of a novel about vampires and magical creatures comes out of real life, but that's the way it is writing this kind of fiction sometimes.

It doesn't surprise me that the book uses settings you have visited Tony. In some of the books on writing that I have it suggests that if your story is set in a real place you visit it if possible. Or at least study maps and look at pictures (if you can't travel) so that you can avoid errors like putting a bakery where the police station is etc.

I'm a firm believer in real-life experience over researching from textbooks, Crich. A textbook cannot tell you how a place sounds or smells, how you feel being there, what the people passing by are like, or the way that that place changes when darkness falls.

Which is not to say I don't do book research when I absolutely need to.
