Gone Writing

Gone Writing

I like blogging, but I’m finding that it takes away time from my writing. So I’ve decided to take some time off to focus on Darkhour Vampires. See you August 24th.

Cassandra

June 22, 2009 at 1:08 am (Darkhour Vampires, Uncategorized) (, )

Cassandra is one of the villains of Darkhour Vampires.

Cassandra is a mulatto slave that could pass for white. She was bought as a young girl of 13 to be the mistress, love slave of a sadistic vampire, Brandon. A gambler who used her as bait. Often she would play poker, with only her clothes to bet, losing slowly, clothed only in her wonderful long, black hair. The players would be so eager to win her for the night, they would end up losing to Brandon. After the Civil War, Brandon fell in with the wrong group. They learned his secret and killed him. They kept Cassandra. She kills herself in the hope that she will cross over and become a vampire. She has her revenge. When Donovan finds her after the war, she is killing union soldiers and Northerners. She is out of control. Donovan is attracted to her aloneness and her pain. He thinks she is like him. They become lovers. He tries to teach her as Amanda has taught him.

To escape the horrors of the south during the reconstruction, he takes Cassandra to San Francisco. Cassandra is insanely jealous of Amanda. Amanda tries to warn Donovan, but he doesn’t want to listen. It is at Donovan suggestion that Cassandra becomes one of the Charter members of Darkhour Corporation. But the situation between Cassandra and Amanda remains tense.

Donovan borrows from Amanda so that he can take Cassandra away. They travel to Europe. He wants to learn more than he knows now. He has reached his second life. He is 50 years old. The world is changing. Cassandra is young, pouty, with a great sexual appetite. Because he treats her with kindness, she does not respect him. As they travel through Europe, they begin to argue more and more. Cassandra becomes the root of Donovan’s later interest in psychology.Eventually in London, Cassandra finds another vampire, Sir Alfred, more like her original master. In a sense she wants Donovan to save her from herself, but he is sickened by her and lets her go. She ends up blaming him for abandoning her.

1907, Sir Alfred is dead, and Cassandra begs Donovan for help. She returns to California House. She is one of the bood mothers for Valentine’s offspring, Stefan. She convinces Stefan to abandon Valentine, to become her fledgling. They travel through Europe, even become part of Hitler’s entourage. Stefan and Cassandra try to convince the vampires to side with Hitler, but they are opposed by Amanda and Valentine.

In 1935, Donovan and Amanda have adopted a child Claire. They are living in Oregon, he has started his clinic.  Cassandra arranges for the murder  Amanda and Claire. She hopes to take over Amanda’s place in Donovan’s heart and Darkhour politics, but suspicious, Donovan hunts down the assassins and learns Cassandra’s role. As a site, she can’t be killed so she is  sentenced to an isolate lair in the Oregon mountains, where almost 50 years later, she  comes across a young boy, Wade Kain. She brings him back to her lair as her sexual play toy.

When a girl is kidnapped from Portland, and the picture is of Cassandra’s servant, Stanos, Donovan decides to investigate what Cassandra has been up to. Afraid he will report her crimes to the Board, she takes Donovan prisoner. Wade and Donovan must work together to try to escape before Cassandra kills them both.

Donovan

June 15, 2009 at 1:22 am (Darkhour Vampires, Uncategorized) (, )

Donovan Reed is a psychiatrist who runs a small private clinic in Fillmore Grove, Oregon. His patients include those with the psychosis that they are vampires. He is a recognized expert on the subject. What people don’t realize is that he is a vampire himself and often treats vampires. One of his jobs is to find newborn vampires and help them make the adjustment.

When Thom Barber is killed in a car crash and wakes up in the morgue craving blood, Donovan notices the news clipping about a missing body and later the unusual death of a wino. He hunts down Thom and stops him from killing again, taking him back to his clinic, where he helps him come to terms with his new existence.

Finding newborns and helping them adjust is a job Donovan has done since the Civil War. That is where he met Cassandra. Next time we’ll meet Cassandra.

Wings become Crimson and Soar

June 13, 2009 at 10:35 am (Uncategorized)

Wings Press has been my publisher for 7 years and I can only applaud their step forward. Since I am sure that there are some readers here who write paranormal erotic I thought I would share the following announcement.

Press release: New Erotic Line Opening for Submissions

June 8, 2009

Crimson Moth Erotic Romance

In 8 years, Wings has transformed from a simple group of ladies wanting to make their dreams of publishing a reality, to an industry leader with those same dreams at its very foundation. The current economic climate is probably one of the most serious challenges we have ever faced. Many companies see it as a parapet that is showing them the end of their existence, but we see a different view… a launching pad from which to fly… we are Wings after all.

We are thrilled to announce our latest adventure Crimson Moth Erotic Romance.

On June 15th, 2009 we will launch Crimson Moth, and begin accepting submissions of highly sensual, plot-driven romances filled with passionate, monogamous relationships.

September 15th, 2009 marks the opening of our cyber doors, giving our readers the opportunity to soar with Crimson Moth romance.

When we began Wings we never dreamed we would be where we are today. We cannot abandon who we have become or where we came from, but we can continue to move forward to achieve more than we now believe possible. If we stand together and face the future, we can take off from here and fly into a success; a success that will transcend the current climate and glide us through to the brighter times ahead.

Visit our website at www.crimsonmoth.com for submission guidelines.

Direct questions to Senior Editor Elizabeth Struble  editor@crimsonmoth.com
