Vampires on the Road

This past week, my steampunk novel Owl Dance was featured as part of Terri Giuliano Long’s Literary World Trip. Drop by to read an excerpt, learn a little about the novel, and a real place featured in the novel.

This particular scene is fun in that it features a possible cameo by one of the Scarlet Order vampires. In Vampires of the Scarlet Order we meet Mercy Rodriguez, a vampire created by the conquistador Rudolfo de Cordoba and who inspired the La Llorona legend. In Owl Dance Ramon Morales also meets a Mercy Rodriguez living in the same area, who is accused of being a vampire. Are they one and the same? Or, are these parallel universes in which this Mercy is just a human with a condition that causes people to accuse her of being a vampire? If you’ve read both Vampires of the Scarlet Order and Owl Dance, I’d love to hear your thoughts on the subject!

Also, on the subject of literary travels, you might recall last week that I mentioned discussions were in process for a possible book signing. It looks like that signing will be happening. I’ll be signing both Dragon’s Fall: Rise of the Scarlet Order and Vampires of the Scarlet Order at Boutique du Vampyre in New Orleans, Louisiana on August 22 from 3-6pm.

This is exciting because I’ve never done a book signing in New Orleans before, but I could use your help! If you’ll be in New Orleans that day, please drop by! Do you know someone who will be in New Orleans and likes a good vampire book? By all means tell them about the event. There is even a Facebook Event page for the signing, if people would like to sign up in advance. Thanks and I hope I’ll see some of you there!
