“You’ve never known true darkness…” With that statement I can happily announce my next book DARKE BLOOD will be arriving in 2017!
Right now, there are lots and lots and lots of writer things to do but this project is looking really good for a publication date of sometime in the first half of 2017.
Success in writing stands in the eye of the beholder (me) and right now considering the fact I am an absolute nobody, I strongly consider my first book Open Evening to be a genuine success. We sold over 50 copies in the first week, mainly due to the #openeveningselfie movement, something I never imagined would be so big!
As a huge thank you to everyone who has got themselves a copy, digital or paperback; announcing this new project right away is my way of saying thank you and of course another daring attempt to get a wider readership.
So Darke Blood, what’s it all about and what’s with the name? Well firstly its pronounced dark, the ‘e’ makes it stand out a bit more and is all part of the story (so there is reason for it).
This book delves a little deeper into the occult and what’s awesome for my already growing readership ;
From the title you can probably guess there will be those toothy ‘people of the night’ types heavily involved along with some cool elements of witchcraft. Right now I’m going for a Shutter Island meets a gender swapped Twilight comparison and in terms of synopsis, well here it is…
In search of a new start Blake Malone arrives in the remote forest town of Darke Heath. The memory of his past quickly becomes unclear as he discovers this place isn’t what it seems. There are more than shadows lurking in the darkness of those trees.
Malone shares a romantic encounter with someone who reveals herself to be a ‘creature of the night’. He learns of her story which intertwines with the history of the ‘Heath’ and together they must fight the evil forces of vampirism and witchcraft that lay in the Darke forest.
But just who is Blake Malone? That’s something even he must fight to discover.
DARKE BLOOD arrives in 2017!
