Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 12, 2012
First-time author Gina Marney’s new ebook Confession of the Vampire Hunter’s Lover (Part 1) is a literary gothic romantic adventure in the spirit of Frankenstein and Dracula.
Part 1 of the 2-part novella finds seventeen year-old Seraphim Arthur giving a first-person description of the beginning of her tragic romantic relationship with internationally-acclaimed Master Vampire Hunter Kaleb Bjornovich, from their meeting at a party thrown by her wealthy aunt and uncle, through to the moment at which she begins to realize that his presence in her life might be the reason for her inflating ego.
The book is written in the spirit of a classic 19th-century novel, and contains passages such as: “The beat of my heart quickened as never before, and at the top of my throat I could feel the pulsing from that critical organ to the extent that I feared I wouldn’t be able to speak to him at all, if indeed I was sufficiently fortunate to be the reason for his descending upon the area.” Weaved into Part 1 are accounts of Kaleb’s battles with vampires, as well as a detailed account of an episode of non-vampire-related military war. It is an epic in every sense of the term.
Not a fan of fancy book covers, Marney chose to make her book’s cover a simple white page with red text. “This is supposed to be a written confession by this seventeen year-old girl,” says Marney. “And, as we find out in Part 2 of the novella, Seraphim is writing this confession in some haste. So it makes sense to me that she’d just throw together a simple cover to put on top of the pages. Besides, I happen to like those old 18th and 19th-century book covers that are just a plain background with the name of the book on them. And, since my book is in the vein of those old books, I made my cover in that vein, too.”
Marney plans to publish Part 2 of the novella sometime in early 2013. “I want to give readers a chance to fall in love with Part 1 first,” she says with a grin.
Confession of the Vampire Hunter’s Lover (Part 1 of a 2-part Novella) is now available for $2.99 at the Amazon Kindle store.
