Hi everyone! Today I have Author J.D. Brown on the blog to tell you about her books and Hallowread!
Hello all. J.D. Brown here, author of the Ema Marx series. I want to let you all know that the sequel, Dark Liaison, recently released in ebook and paperback and is available form most major book retailers. Readers are already calling it a “white water rapids ride” chalk full of mystery, mythology, and magic. It's a series for vampire lovers who want to get back into the nitty-gritty dark fantasy, with just a splash of romance and wit.
But don't take my word for it. Read the first ten chapters of either book in the series on my website, completely free, and decide for yourself.
Meet me and over 25 other authors at HallowRead Book Fest for a weekend of horror and paranormal fun Friday October 25th - Sunday October 27th at Ellicott City, MD. Activities include Ghost Tours, SteamPunk Author Tea, Author Panels, Readings, Dracula performed by Chesapeake Shakespeare Company, Author/Fan Brunch, and more. For more information, check out the HallowRead event page on Facebook. For ticket information, go to http://hallowread.eventbrite.
A limited number of both my books will be available for purchase at HallowRead. However, the best way to ensure you get copy before they run out is to purchase one ahead of time and bring it with you to the book fest. I hope to see you there!
About the Ema Marx series by J.D. Brown
Dark Heirloom (An Ema Marx Novel 1)
“You're a vampire” is so not what Ema Marx wants to hear when she wakes from a two-day coma in a cryptic yet exquisite castle in northern Finland. Unfortunately, it explains a lot. Like why she's able to see in the dark and walk through solid objects. What she doesn't understand is why the other vampires expect her to have all the answers. It's their fault she turned into one of them…right?
Jalmari's hatred for his old-man intensifies when he's ordered to bring that troublesome girl to their castle. He has a clan to run, there's no time for babysitting newborn vampires no matter how they were converted to their culture. But when a two-thousand-year-old premonition threatens to take the crown and his life, Jalmari sees no other choice than to take out the catalyst. Ema Marx. Fortunately for Ema, she could also be the clan's only savior.
The race to figure out her vampiric origins is on. And maybe she'll get the hang of the blood-drinking gig along the way…
Dark Liaison (An Ema Marx Novel 2)
Ema Marx wishes her life would go back to normal, but there's nothing normal about being a Romani-Vampyre with an ancestor who wants you dead. Apollyon is back, wreaking havoc on the lives of everyone she cares about while plotting her demise.
Ema thought she would find a new best friend in her trainer, Bridget, until the exotic vampire vies for Jesu's attention. Jesu can date who he wants, right? Ema has more important things to worry about, like honing her powers. When Apollyon's thugs appear out of the shadows to attack her, Ema knows it's time to take action. But everyone else has other plans in mind.
One thing is for certain, being under house arrest in the German vampyre king's castle was not part of her plan to save the day.
