The Rock Star of Vampires πŸ§›‍♀️

The Rock Star of Vampires was my third book and my first time I tackled the topic of vampires. I would later follow it up with Her Name is Mariah. 


With this book, I explored the idea that perhaps vampires weren't so different from everyday people; with only a few exceptions, one of which was their need to drink blood. I compared it to most people's need for specific vitamins in order to maintain a balance. Also, my vampires had heightened senses. For example, they would be able to see the pollution on trees, have enhanced taste buds and the ability to hear sounds from miles away.

Here is a quick synopsis of the book:

Did Hollywood get it wrong? A year after transforming into a mortal vampire, Ava Lilith continues to have a lackluster life. The new dietary requirements and the intensifying of her senses aside, she continues to face unhappiness rather than the glamorous and provocative lifestyle that television and movies would suggest. She then learns of an underground society of immortal vampires, led by the mysterious 'rock star of vampires' Cloaked in shadow, this Immortal sect controls the major powers of the world - from business and finance to science and politics - all manipulated for personal gain and to keep their existence concealed. Ava finds herself drawn to this secret world where she could live forever and pursue all her dreams. But what will she lose, in order to gain immortality?



Her Name is Mariah πŸ§›‍♀️

Her Name is Mariah is the second of my two vampire books. The first one was The Rock Star of Vampires and it received such a warm reception, I was inspired to follow up with one of the more prominent characters, Mariah Nichols. 

Mariah Nichols was adaptable. She lived through her parent's bitter divorce, a childhood of neglect and the discovery that her only sibling was transgender – so the concept of turning into a mortal vampire was just one more adjustment in an already chaotic life.
But when tragedy rips through Mariah's heart, she realizes what it takes to survive in the world. She must become like an animal and run on instincts not emotions, or so she thought.
Her name is Mariah, and this is her story.
