Whew. that was a lot of effort.
Obviously, it has been bizarre over the past few months.
To start with, I would have published Murphy's Law of Vampires back in September, had I been smarter. But as you recall, I had submitted to Castalia House, and there was a screw up, and the Castalia process had to start all over again. It ended amicably enough. I'm surprised I wasn't outright rejected, but that's another blog.
Also, I've been busy, with Pius History, Pius Tales, and LibertyCon, and the Dragon Awards.
After Honor at Stake, what is Murphy's Law of Vampires?
After saving Brooklyn from a nest of vampires, Amanda Colt and Marco Catalano are a little banged up. He's been given a job offer to deal with vampires in San Francisco, and it's a tempting offer – it would get him away from Amanda, his feelings for her, and get her away from the darkness inside him. When a death in the family compels Marco to move to the West Coast, they're both left to fend for themselves.
But when a creature known only as “Mister Day” leaves their world in tatters, they must once more join forces against the darkness. Only "Day" is no vampire, but a creature beyond their experience. It will take the combined might of Marco, Amanda, and all of their allies just to slow it down. They have no weapons that can kill him. They have no ways to imprison him. To even fight him is death.
But they have to try, or face the end of everything they love.For those people who have no idea what I'm talking about with Honor at Stake and Murphy's Law of Vampires.... I actually have a whole history on the process of developing the universe and the story of how it came together.
I would have posted a #TBT post dedicated to my blog on Sex in Novels, but I haven't added anything to it, or charged it at all.
Honor at Stake was originally with a publishing company.
I've got the basics of the book down already, including the original cover and the tag.
Why I went from doing thrillers that take Dan Brown out to the woodshed to taking Steph Meyer out to the woodshed.
The origins of Honor At Stake.
How I modified vampire lore for Honor at Stake.
How a sociopath and a vampire walk into a bar...
There's also a conversation on world building, how vampires would deal with the real world, and Vatican Ninjas.
I've even talked about the wonderful world of writing romance.
I even posted the prologue.
At 11 blogs later, I'm running out of things to say. Except of course, to ask you if you could please buy the book.
And now, with Murphy's Law of Vampires, we've got...
Chapter 2: The meeting of the NYC Vampires Association
Moving Forward in a Romance.
And Chapter 11: Bankrupt
