A regular series of guest authors will be gracing these pages and the first is a fairly new author, Augusta Fern, her first book is out with the second in the series due out in October of this year.
I will hand over to Augusta to introduce herself and her book.
Hi I am Augusta Fern, and my obsession with vampires started when I was ten years old, after my mother took me to see the film adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. From that night I have been in love with the fantastical notion of living forever while remaining young and possessing the ability to gain wealth with ease. Who wouldn’t love that? You would think that the requirement for drinking blood would deter me from these creatures, but it only made it more interesting to my young mind.
For years I read the books, Anne Rice, Laurell K. Hamilton, etc and watched the movies thriving on each and every vampire adaptation until ten years ago I decided to pen my own. At that time, I worked full time as a sales assistant for a software development company, married with one young child. Somehow I found time to write and when I began to write I felt a rush of adrenaline, as if I couldn’t stop until it was all out, regardless of eating or some night sleeping. I would wake in the middle of the night, pen and paper by the bed afraid I would forget if I didn’t write it then and there. I know lots of writers who do that also, so I don’t feel strange.
After the economic downturn and I lost my job in software development I came back to my writing in hopes of possibly independently publishing. A friend had done the same and graciously helped me through the process. She created a monster, so to speak. I’ve turned the one novel into a “series in progress”. Revelations of Cian is available on the Amazon Kindle or through the kindle app on any smart phone.
