(DISCLAIMER: HAMPIRE IS DUE TO RELEASE IN LATE SEPTEMBER 2015... THE FOLLOWING IS A SNEAK PEEK INTO THE WORLD OF THIS YA PARANORMAL ADVENTURE.)
This is a really fun story -- and it is absolutely a love story.
And yes, Hampire IS a hamster-vampire. How is this possible? Well, I don't want to give too much of the plot away, but let's just say there's an uber bad curse involved.
About the characters:
Sarah is the heroine. She was named after two people. 1) A Sarah that I have literally known more than half my life, and 2) Jennifer Connolly's character in the movie Labyrinth. It's my 2nd favorite movie of all time!
Sarah is a self-described 'plain Jane' who seems to be the only one in her circle of friends who doesn't have a plan after high school. She takes a night job at a mysterious museum, and that's when the craziness begins! (Spoiler alert: There's a scary old lady and a 'creature' inside a cage involved.)
Julian is the hero, a.k.a. Hampire. Facebook actually named him! There was such strong response and participation that I think I'll repeat this again for the next story.
Julian has been a vampire since the Titanic sank (literally). When Julian meets Sarah, they immediately form a bond, but if you're thinking Twilight, think again. ;-)
This story chronicles one girl's journey coming into her own, finding love, and gaining independence. I cannot wait to share it with everyone! XO
Stay tuned for more Hampire news. Sarah and Julian are about to embark on an adventure...with hopefully better results than the Titanic.
