New Blood - Definitely Not Another Vampire Story

In the planning of New Blood, I didn't want to write yet another teenage vampire novel that centered around mushy love scenes. I mean, come on, that's just not me! No, I'm more of an in depth, subterfuge and intrigue kind of writer. Yes I like a little action and passion, like any other writer; but a story needs to have depth for me to enjoy writing it.

So when I started writing New Blood I didn't really have a solid plan of how the underlying currents would play out. Of course, one book down in the series, I certainly do now! That's one of the exciting things about writing a book - seeing where the adventure takes you.

New Blood is fundamentally a book about power and what a person will do to get it and what it can do to a person once they have it. It's also a book about technology, genetics and several other things that we, as humans, are starting to take for granted now. I wanted New Blood to ask several 'what if?' questions. And the book certainly does that. But more than that, it wraps the questions and underlying currents in a story that, at its core, is a love story about two seemingly opposite people. One is a power-seeking monster with a special talent for getting what he wants and the other is a young, innocent woman, looking for love in all the wrong places. Can they, should they, will they ever get together? Only the passage of the series can answer that question.

If you haven't already taken a look at New Blood, why not head over to Amazon (or Barnes & Noble or iBookstore) and download a copy? It's only $2.99 for the electronic version and $12.95 for the paperback. Take a look at the video preview below. You never know, 'Definitely Not Another Vampire Story' may be just what you're looking for.

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?

"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." - G. Tuttle (reviewer)
