Megan Hogueabout this book: I wrote this book in two weeks when the writing bug bit and wouldn't let go. I have since spent the last several months revisiting it time and time again, editing it, adding and subtracting from it, making my friends read through it and edit it, etc., before I finally just decided to grab the bull by the horns and self-publish the book on Kindle and NOOK.
I have been a fan of vampire fiction ever since I was ten years old and read "Interview with the Vampire" for the first time. Since then, preternatural/paranormal/supernatural books have been my bread and butter reading-wise. Writing has been something I have always done; even as a kid in school, when we were required to write a five-paged story in fourth grade, I wrote a 20 page story. I've dabbled in writing since high school which led to me majoring in English and writing in college.
I received a BA in English and writing from Southern Oregon University in 2009 and a MA degree in teaching, also from SOU, in 2010. I have been trying to get a full time teaching job ever since then, so that has given me a long time to buckle down on my writing and make it a reality instead of a dream. I have always wanted to be an author, and now I am one, albeit, self-published.
After going through the rigmarole of dealing with publishing houses, who wanted me to change so many things throughout my novel, I simply decided to self-publish, as the work could remain wholly mine and I could maintain more rights to it, so that's what I did.
When writing vampire/werewolf/supernatural fiction, the niche is to find something new about the genre and make it your own, which is what I have done. I literally read a dozen books a month and never once have I read a paranormal romance where vampires, werewolves, and Druids were all in one place and the main characters of a story. Mythology and folklore is one of my main areas of study, so I combined my knowledge of Celtic and Roman history, along with the mythos of the vampire, werewolf, and other preternatural creatures, and wrote a fictional romance novel that is now the first book in a planned trilogy.
I hope readers will thoroughly enjoy this book and find something new, fresh, and interesting about the vampire genre. I also hope they enjoy the little many history lessons throughout the book, as I know fact can be better than fiction sometimes. The story is set in a contemporary setting, but has an old-world charm about it, plus, a lot of steamy romance! I hope readers like the book and will want to see more from me!!!
