Bloody Hearts Blog Hop

Sounds kinda gross, huh?

🙂

Well, for those who like their fiction fanged, or dark, or maybe even horrifying, today and tomorrow is the Bloody Hearts Blog Hop, sponsored by Vamplit Publishing. This is your chance to discover new authors of dark fantasy and horror by visiting blogs participating in the hop. Most of the blogs are offering free books and other goodies. I encourage you to visit the blog hop site and check out all the cool happenings.

Visitors to my blog during the Hop (Feb 13-14) who answer the question below in a comment will each receive an e-book copy of The Last Trace.

In addition, all commenters will be entered into a random drawing for a free e-book copy of Watcher: Book I of The Chosen.

But before I reveal the question you must answer to receive a copy of The Last Trace, here’s a little bit about me in case this is the first time you’ve visited my blog:

I write fantasy and horror for middle grade, young adult, and adult readers. Most of my stories center around the paranormal, with worlds inhabited by vampires, shapeshifters, werewolves, and other creatures of their ilk.

My published works at this time are, with one exception, all adult fiction.

Watcher: Book I of The Chosen, is the first novel in a trilogy about Sunny Martin and her struggle to find her place in the world after she’s drained of her blood and awakens as an undead, forcing her to abandon her teenage daughter. In Watcher, Sunny’s search leads her to Colorado where she meets Nicolas, the enigmatic leader of a secret society, and discovers something she thought impossible in her new life – love. But it comes with a high price, and a choice she’s terrified to make.

Watcher is available in both paperback and e-book, and one e-book copy will be given away in a random drawing as part of this blog hop.

Runner: Book II of The Chosen, is scheduled to be released in late Spring 2012.

The Last Trace is a novella of The Chosen and tells the story of Trace Pierre Tasman, an 1800s mountain man stalked by a blood-drinking ‘she-demon’. His story continues in Without a Trace, scheduled for release in Fall 2012. The Last Trace is available as an e-book, and will be available in paperback in March – oh, and it’s the free e-book you’ll receive when you answer the question at the bottom of this post!

The Seduction and The Monster’s Growl are the first two tales in the Monsters in the Machines short story collection and are available as e-books. The third story in the collection, Hellbound Train, will be available in Summer 2012.

My young adult series, Forbidden Doorways, is currently in development. The first novel, Finding the Key, will be available in 2013. A short story from the series, Fur Before Feathers, tells the tale of a young shapeshifter learning to shift, and can be found in the 2010 anthology, I Dreamed a Crooked Dream.

More information on my works, as well as excerpts, can be found on my website, www.rohmorgon.com, and at Dark Dreams Publishing. And if you want to know a little bit more about me, you can check out my writer’s bio!

Now, for the question I’ve been promising you:

Who is your favorite vampire in literature or film (or both!)?

Include your answer in a comment, as well as your preferred e-book format (Kindle, Nook, etc) and I’ll send you an e-book copy of The Last Trace.

And as I mentioned before, everyone who leaves a comment will be entered into a drawing for a free e-book copy of Watcher: Book I of The Chosen.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and be sure to check out some of the other bloggers participating in the Bloody Hearts Blog Hop.

Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day!

  1. I like the fat vampire from the X-Files TV show. He was just so ooky and old and living as a translator of old books. The idea echoed a short story I wrote years ago, but was scary, really scary. And the little blind girl next door knew all along something was up. She knew her mom was in his apartment because she smelled her perfume. I was just really bothered by that episode for a long time.

    I would like an LRF format, please, to read the book. I will be happy to give a review or commentary.

    Thanks,

    Thea

    1. Hi Thea,

      I must confess my X-File education is lacking in many areas. I had no idea there was a vampire on the show. I’ll need to download those episodes and watch them!

      I’ll be sending out Trace today and tomorrow, and I’ll be happy to send you a copy in the LRF format.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Hi Roh!

    Sorry it took a contest of yours to get me on your blog again. But hey, who can resist getting one of your stories for free.

    Let’s see, I don’t remember too many vampires from books that I liked, but I mostly read adult SciFi or children’s fantasy – not too many blood suckers to choose from. Maybe Alice Cullen from Twilight by Stephenie Meyer as my favorite book vampire. From movies, there are several. Just a few of my favorites from semi-recent movies:

    1. Kate Beckinsale as Selene in Underworld
    2. Ethan Hawke as Edward Dalton in Daybreakers
    3. Josh Hartnett as Eben Oleson in 30 Days of Night (I know, he was barely a vampire – a life even shorter than Bree Tanner’s)
    4. Bill Nighy as Viktor in Underworld (wish he didn’t die… glad they made the prequel)
    5. Sophia Myles as Erika in Underworld (they could have done so much more with her – hope she gets a spin off movie)
    6. Brad Pitt as Louis de Pointe du Lac in Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (what’s not to love about a pathetic vampire)
    7. Kirsten Dunst as Claudia in Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (you have to admit, she was cute when she killed… you don’t get that everyday)

    Looking forward to the story. I read with a Kindle or on my PC, so mobi or pdf if you’ve got them.

    1. Hi Ryan!

      Alice was my fav, too. And Bill Nighy – he’s such a badass! Loved him in Pirates as well…

      Underworld is one of my favorite vampire films, and of course, Selene just rocks. Louie and Claudia in Interview are definitely on my list, but I think Armand (played by Antonio Banderas) is slightly ahead of them – I just love his dark and lethal dignity.

      I’ll send you a .mobi of The Last Trace later on tonight.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Oh, just noticed that I put spoilers in my previous response – namely in the parentheses for Josh Hartnett and Bill Nighy – if you have the ability to edit, you might want to take those out. Sorry!

    1. Another fav of my was Frank Langella from the 1979 version of Dracula. He was one of the first really romantic vampires. It was a pretty hot film for its time.

      The Hunger with Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie was pretty awesome, too. I’ll never forget the opening in the nightclub with Bauhaus playing ‘Bela Lugosi’s Dead.’ Come to think of it, nightclubs figure a bit in Watcher. Hmm…

      And can’t forget Kiefer and gang in The Lost Boys. Hot AND very dangerous. 🙂

  4. The vampire that I thought was awesome was Laurant from Twilight. Out of all the Vampires on that movie, he proved to be the best, plus I loved his blue eyes.

    1. Hello Sue,

      Thanks for stopping by my blog.

      I have to agree with you. Laurant was pretty awesome.

      Though I mentioned in an earlier reply that I liked Alice, I do have to confess I was actually Team James.

    1. Hello Wendy!

      Yes, must bow to the Master. He’s the one who sends chills up my spine.

      For those visitors who might not be aware of this, the Bloody Hearts Blog Hop is Wendy’s brainchild.

      Thanks for putting this event on, Wendy, and thanks for stopping by my blog!
