To fans of my supernatural thriller The Vampire, I have begun penning its dramatic sequel. So far, I have approximately 70 pages written and have been spending much of my free time working on this new book because, as I've always been, I am so in love with Rex and his story, set in historic Newport, Rhode Island.
Since releasing The Vampire, readers have been reaching out with requests for the sequel, because they found themselves taken with Rex’s heart-wrenching existence, as well as that of the many supporting characters that make The Vampire such a riveting, compelling, and entertaining read.
As readers are already aware, Rex is not your typical unconscionable vampire who is driven to kill without a thought about the repercussions of his actions. He surprisingly has a conscience, and respects the lives of all animals as well as nature, which he is convinced has awareness and consciousness. He also has quite a likable, and sometimes humorous personality.
In the harrowing continuation of this ancient vampire's story, readers can look forward to seeing many of the original characters from The Vampire, including the main character Rex (the vampire), his love interest Renée, the vampire’s loyal Butler Piedmont, his pet dog Hank, and Chester the owl, as well as Balázs, and Valder. But, there's an exciting addition to The Vampire family, a witch that I have been obsessed with creating. The relationship between Rex and this witch will have readers up all night turning the book's pages to see what happens next.
I don’t want to give too much away about her character yet, but I do want readers to know that she is worth the wait, and will bring a lot to the story and to Rex’s life.
