Guest Author & Giveaway: Rosalind Hartmann
Hi there. I’m Roz, and you’ve never heard of me before, but that’s cool – hopefully that’ll change…some…day. I just recently self-published my first novel which is part of a series. Blood Memory: Book 1 (because honestly I couldn’t think of a better title) is a paranormal action/romance written book with a little humor mixed into it.
It’s based off of characters originally created on a role-playing message board I helped create – www.sanguineaffliction.com. It’s a tale of supernatural beings: werewolves and vampires, and I swear I didn’t just hop on the bandwagon because of all the sparkles and stuff in the main stream right now. The main character, Simon Huntington, was created back in 2004 and the others just keep cropping up.
Blood Memory: Book 1 is a story about intrigue, murder, and the lie within the truth. A ‘blood memory’ is a werewolf ability passed from gifter to giftee. This particular memory involves Simon Huntington and his partner Ellis Duban and they’re the center of a dark betrayal against the werewolf family packs: the Jamesons and Hammerthynns. Coincidentally, no one can remember the memory itself, only that they want to tear off Simon’s face whenever they see him. Inconvenient, to say the least.
Then there’s Vivienne Sena, the sole survivor of a massacre brought upon by the man she would eventually call father. A blood retribution against her family, Vigo Hammerthynn’s Pipers wiped out the Sena pack and left her an orphan, sparing her life for an unknown reason. Vigo raised Vivienne outside the pack, but as an adult, recognized certain abilities that made her indispensable to the Alpha Pipers – the group of werewolves who are bred as Alpha protectors, and related to the Jameson and Hammerthynn packs.
Together, Vivienne and Simon travel the globe to search out the real truth of the Blood Memory that no one can remember, but all Hammerthynns and Jamesons would die for. Led by Vigo’s only son, Viv’s adopted brother, and the Greater Pack’s Beta, Iov Hammerthynn enlists his cousin, and Viv’s secret lover, Commander Brian ‘Brig’ Jameson to kill Simon and bring back Vivienne to an almost certain death.
No one questions the blood memory. Period.
I’ve been writing about these characters on SA.com for years now – from their explosive beginnings and adding more and more characters and plot twists as time progressed. I love these people and there’s more of me in all of them than I’d care to admit.
Book 2: Awake will be coming out in the Spring, but Book 1 is available on amazon in both print and kindle format. Thanks for taking the time to read all this and you can find me at the following.
