About Me

My mind is a whirlwind of thoughts and imagination. A simple raindrop, the smell of a trash heap, or the touch of a bee's stinger is enough to immerse me into a new story idea. My passion is writing and my inspiration is everywhere. So far, my focus has been in short stories, however I have many novels floating around in my brain. Recently I have also been handed the opportunity to review the works of others and share them with everyone that reads my blog.

Review Once Upon a Grave by William Bove

http://www.amazon.com/Once-Upon-Grave-William-Bove-ebook/dp/B00F2C6WB2/ref=as_li_ss_til?tag=httpesselprbl-20&linkCode=w01&linkId=S432VCA5LEIMEWVW&creativeASIN=B00F2C6WB2
Once Upon a Grave by William Bove is a personal glimpse into the the life of a Vampiress as she discovers herself.  Caught in a situation in which she is forced to leave her group, Nicole adjusts to traveling on her own without the support she has grown to know.  On her travels, she meets another vampire that allows her to discover her lineage and take control of her future.

I was quite surprised with the depth of story that was presented in the book.  I expected to see a short glimpse into a brief event of the vampire life.  However, I was rewarded with a fantastic tale of self-discovery and growth. The only complaint I have is that I want more of the story (Hint Hint).

William Bove is an amazing writer and will definitely be someone I follow.  Keep an eye out for him and his future releases, you will not be disappointed!



"Against the backdrop of the Great Depression , a group of young vampires move through the nights. Barns and shacks decorated in corpses are the only landmarks to their presence. Within the group a quiet rebellion grows and with it the means to tear them apart. Blood and death always carry with it a truth."
