It was an exciting evening yesterday as the UPS man knocked on the door and dropped off a couple of proofs of my new book - New Blood.
If you've been keeping up with the story, you'll know New Blood is a 16+ Young Adult Urban Paranormal Thriller. I'm excited to release it in the next couple of weeks.
Of course there's still a lot of prep work to do before it goes live, so now it's time to work on all the marketing materials. There's business cards, posters, flyers and the likes to print and a whole box load of paperbacks to order, ready for the first book launches during October in Melrose itself - Redmond, WA (can you tell I'm excited?).
I'll be bringing you all more news during the next few days, but in the meantime, take a read of the back cover and prepare yourselves for the ride of a lifetime!
A single kiss can get a girl killed. But what if he's the most irresistible man you've ever met? What would you do?
In a world where big corporations are controlled by a secret society, Beau is on track to have everything he ever wanted and more. And there is only one woman that stands in his way - As long as she can resist falling in love with the man of her dreams.
In this contemporary tale of power, greed, ambition, death and love, what would you be prepared to sacrifice to have it all?
"New Blood reads like season one of an addictive paranormal TV series. The premise takes the power of relationships beyond even the vampire thrill. The characters are fleshed out (except the victims, who are left convincingly dry) and we care enough about our heroine Lucy, to dread her migraines almost as much as she does. Add in a paranoia about the people who are really in power and... well, the temptation is to call it a formula for a long and satisfying series. However, Paul Dorset rises above formulaic prose with writing so compelling that only after you catch your breath do you realize the craftsmanship. He tells stories. And as with the best paranormal fiction, the fantasy serves to illustrate some basic truths of the human condition." -reviewer
