I am exhilarated to announce the release of my new novel, The Vampire. I hope readers love this unique vampire character, as much as I loved creating him. Grab a copy of The Vampire, light a fire, cuddle up under a blanket, and be prepared to be terrified, inspired, and allow your heart to ache for a tormented supernatural being living among unsuspecting mortals in Newport, Rhode Island.
Hundreds of years ago, Rex, one of the world’s rarest and most powerful vampires, decided to quietly settle in Newport, Rhode Island, where the public still has no idea he lives among them. Rex, however, is no ordinary vampire. A tortured soul, he roams Rhode Island’s most historic locations, tracking down some of the state’s most detestable human beings, to rid the area of those he considers contemptible, while leaving others in ignorant peace. Yes, this vampire kills, but he does so in such spectacularly chilling fashion that it’s poetic. His sensitive side though is what sets him apart from his cold-blooded brethren. Connecting to living things upon the earth, he develops a newfound appreciation for the natural world, all of which he feels mortals mostly take for granted, but which he no longer does. It is because of this, Rex, a vampire, ironically finds himself searching for evidence of a higher power to explain the deeper meaning of his existence, and if one such as him deserves a place in the universe, let alone redemption. Rhode Island’s vampire is complex beyond measure. Not only is he a lover of nature, and the arts, he even has the capacity to fall passionately in love with a woman. Through his lifestyle and immortal experiences, Rex’s heart-wrenching story is a reminder of the beauty, yet complexity of the human experience. As Rex learns, living as a vampire can be difficult, but dying is even harder.
The Vampire is 453 pages, and is available on Amazon.com (paperback/kindle), Barnes & Noble (NOOK) and coming to Apple iBooks soon.
