HOT BLOOD - A Paranormal Fantasy Epic - On Sale

[Updated, January 2021]

Two immortal creatures have arrived in New York City. One of them is Tanya Merrit, the last of the Ykrall, a magical race that lives among and depends on human beings ... they take a little of their blood while making love, so to enhance their powers.

But the other is Janos Wolkran, an ancient and extremely deadly vampire. He has brought with him a brood of servants, people who he has converted into lesser creatures, each of them existing solely for his bidding.

Except that one of them is dying right now. And looking for a new replacement, Wolkran's gaze alights on Tanya's human lover, Kathy Harrison. And when he steals her away and takes her with him, Tanya finds herself launched on a desperate pursuit that will lead her most of the way round the world ... and then even further.

But as Kathy is infected and begins to transform, the most appalling of all questions starts to raise its head ... can anything be done to change her back?

Available on Kindle Unlimited.

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.

Happy reading (well, as happy as reading a horror novel can be)!

Ah, but that's why we read horror novels and go on rides like roller coasters isn't it? To get a thrill in a safe manner.
