One of the best things about being on this journey is meeting new authors as I go along. Nicole Fergusson is one of my sister authors at LOF Publishing and I'm so happy that we met. We both write urban fantasy and when I asked her to be my guest here, she said, "Yes!"
So, everyone, meet Nicole.
I've been asked to put together a couple of guest blog posts. So I've been thinking, what's something new to say about Gothic that just hasn't been said now and over the last three months since Gothic was released? Synopses litter the internet trail behind me, there are a couple of excerpts round and about, but I'm in the situation where I don't want to give away *too many* of them. So what to do, what to do?
Right now, I'm in the middle of a feverishly hot summer in Melbourne, fresh into the new year of 2013, a new year, a good time for new resolutions and for new authors to put on our shelves!
The biggest thing that stands out as a positive for me for last year is that I got this wonderful little book published over with the lovely people at Leap of Faith publishing.
You may have heard of it. I like to call it 'Gothic (Shadows of Melbourne #1)'.
Something that I really only ever did once, and on this blog, and in <a href="http://nicole-d-fergusson.blogspot.com.au/2012/10/new-realease-gothic.html">October last year,</a> is a quick 'Meet the Characters' segment, with a couple of visual cues to aid.
Since then, I have finally remembered the fresh face that I originally imagined in my head when I first started writing about Dahlia.
Dahlia is a fresh faced girl, living out of home for the first time, studying at university and meeting all sorts of new faces. One of them is her friendly neighbourhood vampire, studying a class on Gothic literature at nights alongside her. Oh, no, I hear you say! However will she deal with the fact that this new friend of hers is a creature of the undead?
Quite well, actually. You see, Dahlia just happens to have a werewolf for a father, a ghost for a mother, and a vampire for a godmother. And Dahlia isn't interested in having more supernatural complications entering her life.
Unfortunately for her, that would be a very boring way to plot out a novel. And so, instead of freedom from the supernatural elements of her life, Dahlia is drawn in when one by one, her werewolf kin begin to go missing and when, despite herself, she is also drawn to one very pretty new vampire in her life.
Please join Dahlia into the journey of being ordinary when the players in her life are anything but. The sequel novel, 'Revelry' is due for release in the first half of 2013.
