Rebel Vampires series by Rosemary A Johns

‘Your lips were close to mine. All I’d need to do was… You pulled back (of course you bloody did), even if you were still clutching onto me as if my body was yours. Because no matter what other nasties you might do with it, you’d never kiss your slave, would you? Then you suddenly hauled me closer, and we were snogging. At that moment, none of it meant anything. Slave or Mistress. First Lifer or Blood. It never does when skin meets skin.’ Blood Shackles

“Impossible to put down” 5*Amazon Reviewer

The May Book Fair is packed with a line-up of bestselling authors including: Carysa Locke, K.C. Stewart and Felicia Beasley…

Blood Shackles is 0.99 until May 31st. Then it returns to its normal price 2.99.

Escape into Blood Life…

Would you sacrifice your freedom to save your family? When vampires are slaves, and humans are acting like monsters, it’s a dangerous game to love your Mistress.

 

STUNNING AUTHOR INTERVIEW – Vampires, Domination and James Dean

 

Rosemary A Johns - Fantasy Author

Sometimes as an author you have chats with magazines, interviewers or TV hosts where everything just clicks. They get you, the book and more than that: how to challenge it.

You discover something about writing, yourself and life, as well as discussing your work in a far more fascinating way than you ever could alone.

That’s what happened with Scaffolding Magazine.

Freedom, domination, terrorism, my childhood, writing tips and James Dean… 

And did I mention how gorgeous the podcast is..?

FANTASY SHORT STORIES – New Magazine

I love short stories. They’re the quiet gems of the writing world – done right? They catch your imagination, worm under your skin and squeeze your heart…

The great ones..? You never forget.

A short story is harder to write than a novel. Flash fiction is the hardest of all. I’ve been a traditionally published short story writer since I was fourteen (of course the editor didn’t know I was a kid…)

I write science fiction, fantasy and dark fiction. What I really write? Emotion. That extra something, which will grab you and not let go.

My most recent short story is being featured in the very first edition of a new literary magazine Scaffolding. It’s passionate about the same things I am: inclusion, gender and mental health. The magazine itself pairs the very best writers with the most stunning artists.

The story “How to Scalp a Doll” is dark fiction about a human trafficker who makes the mistake of opening the truck door…then his whole world is turned on its head.

It’s about siblings, fear, loneliness, freedom…and what it means to be alive.

Danny had always hated geese…

Rebel Vampires will also be part of the magazine long-term, offering rewards to readers who subscribe. Click here to find out more.

FANTASY AND SCIENCE FICTION CONVENTION – Panels from Tolkien to Dr Who

One of my secret passions – did I say passions…all right you’ve twisted my arm – obsessions – is watching convention panels on YouTube. Only when I have time and until I work out the serious flaws in my ‘Clone the Author’ experiments, I have almost none of that.

Rosemary A Johns Fantasy Author

I love to hear discussions about my favourite shows, books and writers. Hear sneak peeks behind the scenes and authors’ plans ahead of time.

This last week I was invited to take part in a series of fantasy and science fiction panels. They’re part of a Cyber Convention and Book Expo, which opens to readers 7 – 9th April: a virtual book San Diego Comic Con. 

So what did we discuss?

One panel was dedicated to how far fantasy has come from Tolkien to the modern day.

Another examined magical systems, including our own: what were the rules, limitations and dangers in our fantasy worlds and why did it matter?

Being the only honorary Brit on the panels, Britain and the BBC’s fantasy was in my corner: Dr Who. Enough said.

Not to miss the science fiction panels on Star Wars, Star Trek and how writing has evolved to match audiences.

If you could take one question to a fantasy panel – what would it be?

I’ll try and sneak it in to my next panel…

FANTASY REVIEWS -Midwest Book Review and Vamped Magazine

rebel-vampries-picture

It has been one busy week in the world of Blood Life. Two reviews came in this week – one for each book because everything has to balance, right? I love both magazines, so bonus.

blood-dragons-cover-medium-webThe Midwest Book Review took on Blood Dragons:

“…Set in a precarious world where vampires are both predator and prey, Blood Dragons deftly blends elements of paranormal thriller and passionate romance. Blood Dragons is a character-driven, sizzling-hot saga for vampire literature connoisseurs to sink their teeth into!” – Midwest Book Review

blood-shackles-cover-medium-webAnd it was Vamped Magazine, who dived into Blood Shackles:

“A strong book because of a strong voice. I liked the playing with the genre and making the vampires vulnerable (if still dangerous, deep down), and the cynicism about First Lifer morality. As Johns has said, “There’s no darkness in Blood Life that humanity didn’t invent first” ” – Vamped Magazine

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?
