An excerpt from Count Lucien:
Lucien brooded, silently listening, waiting to hear her dark music. He could feel her presence; but where and how close. She would never enter a place of worship, but he had been fooled by her. Could his mind violate the sanctity of the church? He tried. He got nothing.
Lucien’s black heart pounded like a sledgehammer in his chest at the thought of his Delicate Rose begging for mercy. He grew a hard on with the thought of her offering herself in reconciliation for their abrupt separation, before he drank every drop of her ancient essence to be Eternal. As for Jacques and Claudette – so what if they needed Eternal’s blood as badly as he did. They could suffer the consequences. Let their addiction burn their blood dry and fry their brains. Her blood was his alone, no more sharing.
About the Author:
I live with my wife, Shirlee Anne in a pretty coastal town in South Wales, UK. We both love Stephen King and had read many of his books and enjoyed their transition to the screen. Due to our love of books, my wife and I dabbled in writing for some years as a hobby. We were approached by a film company to write a paranormal TV series. We struggled most nights and all through weekends to come up with 22 episodes only for the company to go bust. Then after an accident at work, I was forced into early retirement due to disability. I used my newfound skills as a writer to help with my depression. We decided to use our TV series episodes as templates for film scripts and novels. My writing became more serious as certain A-list actors expressed interest in my scripts. I now have 3 books published - Nobody Loves a Bigfoot Like a Bigfoot Babe - Luna Sanguis and Luna Aeturnus.
Luna Historica is the final episode and will explore Eternal’s birth during Khufu’s reign as Pharaoh to her death in the French Revolution.
