Shades of Midnight is a gothic vampire series dealing with vampires who are reminiscent of authors like Anne Rice, but a bit more human and individualistic. Here the vamps' personalities and abilities go hand in hand with each other, the vampires feed through sex and create other vampires in this way as well. Some of the old rules are there: holy water and sunlight are poison (holy water from spring water and due to a sensitivity to minerals, not religion btw) mirrors are unpleasant and they must feed to survive.
While, yes, the central story revolves around the romantic relationships of the main, Katja, this is not Paranormal Romance, nor is it strictly a horror novel full of grue and gore (though there are a few instances of this nonetheless). This is a gothic horror series, it involves mystery, horror, the supernatural, humanity's darkness, sadness, self-destruction, self-discovery, romance, ghosts, horrible pasts, monsters both human and inhuman, heroes and heroines who are damaged and imperfect, loss and grief.
I'm interested in finding reviewers who might enjoy this sort of novel and would like to give mine a go. I want honest reviews and I could use them anywhere on the internet you can post them because Eyes Like Blue Fire was originally self-published and I don't have new reviews up since it came out from my publisher. The third book, Cool Green Waters, will also be coming out early in 2015 and I would love to have readers ready for it and invested in the series. I can provide PDF copies to reviewers and, if you are doing a feature about one or both of the books on your blog, I can provide you with information like author photos, a bio and cover jpgs as well. Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a copy and let me know whether or not you're a blogger or a regular reviewer as well.
