SUPERNATURAL PROMO – Fantasy and Paranormal Books on Sale

A serious Supernatural Promo runs until tomorrow evening: fantasy, paranormal and supernatural thrillers. Now there’s a combo I’m down with.

Blood Shackles has been chosen to feature: it’s still on Sale at 0.99 for one final day. The sale and promo ends after the 17th.

Click here to buy before the end of the sale.

Discover that next addictive read and favourite new character to fall in love with. Have a nose around the books alongside Blood Shackles; I’ve already nabbed a couple. I’m cozied ready to read one this evening…

Because tomorrow? I start the first scene of my NEW series… And once I do that? I can’t read anything by other authors.

It’s a rule. Like ‘don’t walk on the grass’. Except rebel as I am, I can’t break this one: when I write first drafts, I don’t read because this keeps me in the voice of the character.

So I better start reading tonight

Enjoy the Supernatural Promo here

HOW TO PROFILE A VAMPIRE – Fantasy Event on 15th March

Light anti-hero Rebel Vampires Fantasy book

On the 15th March Light – the British vampire at the heart of the Rebel Vampires series – will be taking over the Ides of March Essentia Event.

This is a Character Event: where authors take it easy and the characters come out to play.

From 12 – 1 p.m. EDT Light will be here. You can ask him whatever you like, chat and banter, listen to his music or play his games…blinding.

Blood Dragons and Blood Shackles - Rebel Vampires Fantasy SeriesIn honour of Light’s escape into the real world – here’s Light’s Character Profile:

Light – the British Rocker Blood Lifer – is on a redemptive journey. In Blood Shackles he’s enslaved by a secret human Blood Club. The dark conspiracy behind it, which threatens the world? You’ll have the read the series to find out!

As a slave, Light discovers something he hasn’t experienced for 150 years – love of a family. Blood Shackles is about hope. How love of family – and the drive to save them – can set you free.

A hidden paranormal London lies beneath our own… 

Light Anti-hero in Rebel Vampires Series Rosemary A JohnsLight: A rebel Blood Lifer with a photographic memory. And a Triton motorbike. He’s a British James Dean: rough leather motorcycle jacket, decorated with a worn gold Ace of Spades, collar firmly turned up, over a black t-shirt, jeans and tall motorcycle boots, topped by a light brown pompadour, tamed with Brylcreem. He tried to conforming once: didn’t fit.

When and where elected into Blood Life? Victorian London.

Human name? Thomas Blickle

Bloodline? Plantagenet. Powerful, ancient, Magnificoe. And hunted.

Favourite drinks? Coffee – black, two sugars. Guinness.

Favourite motorbike? Triton. ‘A sodding scarlet slash of beauty. 650cc Triumph twin-cylinder engine in a Norton ‘slimline’ Featherbed frame – and my bloody god.’

Favourite possession? His leather jacket. For the last 150 years, Light has always owned a ‘blinding coat’.

Favourite phrase? ‘Bollocks vampire myth…’

Who is Ruby? A sexy but savage Elizabethan Blood Lifer in crimson silk. ‘Ruby. My red-haired devil, Author, muse, liberator, guide: my gorgeous nightmare.’

Who is Kathy? A seductive singer, with blue eyes and long black curls. But she’s also human. When the two worlds collide, it could mean the end. For both species. ‘You looked like some little Moon Girl, shimmering in silver. I would’ve blasted into space with you in a bleeding heartbeat. ’

Who is Grayse? Master’s daughter: she chooses Light, as if he’s a puppy in a pet store. Commanding and business-like, Grayse is tall with ‘steely grey peepers’. Can a mistress truly love her slave? And can Light love her, when his family are still in chains?  ‘At that moment, none of it meant anything. Slave or Mistress. First Lifer or Blood. It never does when skin meets skin. It was just Light and Grayse.’

Light looks forward to having a chinwag with you on the 15th at the Ides of March

Until then, enjoy your escape into Blood Life
