Reunion of the Blood is the fifth story in the Tale of Vampires series, and it was officially released this week on Monday 25th April 2016. As some readers will have observed, I do pay tribute to certain people in the dedication part of my books. Such people are made of friends, family, authors, and of course, fans, without whom the books would not have an audience.
One of the reasons I started writing was to actually see if I could do it. People around me believed that I could, so my jumbled notes about martial arts eventually became my first book, and whilst I planned to do a follow up, for some reason, I started to write fiction.
A book cannot be forced out of you. Like martial arts moves, it is not so much a case of ‘I am throwing a punch’, it is more like the punch is happening through you – a force of nature, if you will. Writers, I believe, are a force of nature. Those writing in the hopes of getting a quick buck are unlikely to realise their dream. And I know some quality writers out there that may not get the financial rewards they deserve.
But for those that stay true, and try to write the very best book that they can, they will find their audience.
When I outlined my vampire series, looking back, it was rather ambitious. Seven books detailing the lives of a group of vampires. Could I really do it? Now that I have completed book five, it is astonishing to me that I have gotten this far. But I think the series has its own set of fans, and it has been a joy to write.
So I hope you will give book five a try, and do check out the earlier books in the series too.
