Besides our awesome IW support group, I'd like to talk briefly about family support. My family is great and completely support my writing, of course, most of them don't support it enough to actually read it. Grin. I periodically collar the hh, who is an English Instructor and writes poetry. When he does make a suggestion on a manuscript I've written it's usually spot on and something I've totally overlooked. My sister picks up nearly everything that comes out on Kindle and shoots for being the first purchaser and is tied for first place with the hh in leading the rah rah support section. I couldn't do without them. But the family member whose support blows me away is my eighty-seven year old uncle who reads everything that comes out in paper. Romance, fantasy, historical, it doesn't matter, he reads it. Is that not the coolest thing?
And speaking of come outs, i.e. releases, Vampire Island has been re-released.
My name is Zoe Tempest. Just let me say, I had no intention of becoming a vampire hunter. My world revolved around the trendiest clothes, the boy of the week, shopping, and texting.
I always tried to play down the fact that I’m really quite intelligent. I’d much rather be considered blonde and clueless. It’s so much easier to get dates.
My parents were well-off and indulgent. I was the center of their universe. I’m afraid I took that for granted.
One odd thing, my mother insisted I take self-defense training. I just figured she wanted to keep her little princess safe. But looking back, perhaps she had a premonition. To my surprise, I took to it like a kid to Pop Tarts and ended up with a black belt in karate.
My life was as close to perfect as a seventeen year old can get. I had everything. Then my parents were murdered and my world came crashing down.
After their funeral, I went to live with my uncle Julian Kilmer. That’s when everything changed. In a manner more terrifying than anything I could have imagined.
