WHAT’S URBAN FANTASY? – And the Chance to Win 45 Books

pixaby-fantasy-city

Straight to the question I get asked more than any other: what’s urban fantasy?

The twin question clinging to that one? What’s the difference between urban fantasy and paranormal romance?

Short answer: not much. See, I can be succinct when I want to.

Long answer: in urban fantasy, although love often drives the main character, their journey is the focus. Redemption or revenge. Not simply the romance between two characters.

It’s been said, however, that paranormal romance and urban fantasy share 95% of the same DNA.

 

rebel-vampires-black-letters Fantasy book Rebel Vampires Rosemary A JohnsBeing ‘urban’, in urban fantasy the city becomes central. It can be set in any time period. In Rebel Vampires London and its dark and glory, is as much a character as the vampires themselves: St Paul’s, London Bridge or Primrose Hill.

If you study the Rebel Vampires front covers, you’ll see a different London skyline and bridge: these are central in each book.

blood-dragons-cover-medium-web Fantasy Book Blood Dragons Rebel Vampires series Rosemary A Johns

I love urban fantasy because unlike some other types of fantasy, the supernatural is either hidden beneath our world or is right there alongside: the magical among the everyday. Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere first turned me on to this style of fantasy, when I watched the original BBC TV version: it opened my eyes to a new style of fantasy.

blood-shackles-cover-medium-web Blood Shackles Fantasy Book Rebel Vampires series Rosemary A JohnsThis is one of my favourite scenes in Blood Shackles, because it contrasts the powerful supernatural with the reality of our lives.

‘I realised I hadn’t heard the click of the front door, when I glanced up, and you were standing there. You were leaning against the wall, with a thoughtful expression, as you watched me on my knees, dusting cloth in one hand, glass vase in the other and tears in my peepers, whilst I sang along to Amy Winehouse. I must’ve looked like a right berk.’ (Blood Shackles)

LAUNCH OF FANTASY REBEL SHOP – Rebel Vampires Jewelry Collection

anartia

The last few months I’ve been battling to keep quiet about some seriously blinding things coming your way

They include Fantasy Rebel’s first Shop. Watch out for exciting merchandise being released over 2017.

Today the first collection is launched. 

Rebel Vampires very own exclusive jewelry collection. It’s inspired by the series (including the yet to be published third novel Blood Renegades). Each piece is connected to one of the books, including quotes and an interpretation by me.

See the whole collection here.

See their inspiration here.

I was buzzing when I saw the bracelets: as Light would say, they called to me. Here’s a taste:

Rebel Vampires Diligo Bracelet

diligio

Diligo: in Latin means esteem highly, prize, love.

In Blood Life emotions are amplified: ‘They survived but twisted, like a blasted tree after lightning. Where once they were pale and sickly, now they were intense, powerful and dark.’ (Blood Dragons) Light fights for those he loves. He suffers, endures…saves the world. Love, yeah, he was always one for that.

Yesterday on The Hot Spot I ran a takeover, including a contest to win the Servitutem Bracelet. See the winner here.

Rebel Vampires Servitutem Bracelet

servitutem

Servitutem: in Latin means bondage, servitude, enslaved.

Light is a slave to love. To his Author Ruby. The darkness of a second desperate and brutal world of blood. But he’s also a true slave. Bought and paid for, like a puppy in a shop window – unless he can free them all. ‘I’m not a slave; I’m the bloody superhero.’ (Blood Shackles)

I’ll spotlight other parts of the collection soon and new items as they become available.

Have a browse in the shop – we wanted to find a way to give back something special and unique.

What’s your favourite and what would you like to see next in our shop?
