Something’s gone bump in the archives! Blood Hunger characters Lucia vs Iliana. 

   

So that’s it for this year. Thank you all for following my blog, reading my film comments  (they are not  reviews, everyone has their own taste like women/men, wine and music) and reading my news. To-date this blog has had 49,997 hits.
Next year the 2nd Editions of my top 40 ebooks Blood Hunger (#13 unlucky for some) and Dead Pulse (#39) will be released.
It’s been a great year for my scifi The Final Version, with it reaching #12 in the Cyber Punk ebook chart.
The music video I directed (packed with scifi references, see how many you can spot) has had 3,550 views to date, be warned it gets a little bloody towards the end -check it out here:
Thank you all for following my blog, reading my books and watching my videos – I really appreciate it. Be safe, have a fantastic seasonal time and have a very merry Christmas.

In time for my favorite time of year, early I know but we’ve already put the Halloween decorations up in my home! 

The rights to both vampire thriller Blood Hunger and zombie chiller Dead Pulse have reverted back to myself. After this Halloween the novels will become unavailable.

They possibly may be resurrected in second editions depending on publishers. While the first editions satisfy, in retrospect their not as polished from an editing standpoint as I would have wished but no use crying over spilt milk. Still they’re entertaining horror travel reads. Even the industry’s big players are feeling the pinch and its difficult for the most seasoned authors to earn a crust so I’m not holding my breath for the novels to be picked up.

All is not lost in a shallow grave my sci-fi novel The Final Version is being well received. Again thank you for reading, thank you for your support and have fantastic Halloween.

Having been confined to the USA as a download only I am pleased to announce anyone worldwide can now watch Terminus the film for free.
From director and writer Sean P. Parsons and myself the novelist of Dead Pulse and Blood Hunger comes Terminus – an existential vampire tale which crosses violent supernatural hijinks with an arthouse aesthetic to produce a new take on a worn-out genre.
The Story
Ellicott City, a condemned paper mill, home of Anushka – a vampire assassin haunted by self-imposed isolation. Her vow to never feed on humans is tried when a chance meeting tests her resolve. Her first bite could be your last.
Terminus is an original film that plays as prelude capturing the spirit of my book Blood Hunger. Sean P. Parsons’ screenplay features the sub character of the novel Anushka, who an important part of the Serbian plot. Marquise, played by Stacey Jackson, is an incarnation of the character Monica from the novel.

Watch this wonderful slow-burning vampire short by Sean P. Parsons here:

CAST

Philip Fletcher … Hauer
Katherine DuBois … Anushka
Stacey Jackson … Marquise
Sarah Taurchini … Caelum
Ben Cunis … Jacob
Ryan Sellers … Target 2
Bruce Allen Dawson … Bodyguard
Theo ‘Rick Vick’ Johnson … Target 1


With the flooding of the vampire market I’ve unjustly neglected my own enigmatic, gothic and blood soaked vampire book Blood Hunger.

So what’s it about?

An explorer makes a discovery in Romania, dubbed the ‘Ice Prince’ find it is

Blood Hunger film style poster

significant enough to put him and his girlfriend Lucia Ferrara in the media spotlight. Iliana and her sister’s journey to the United Kingdom, news that the ‘Ice Prince’ had been discovered ceases their many years of blood abstinence and they unleash a bloodthirsty terror on humankind leaving a trail of death from London to the Welsh countryside.

From the fall of the vampire and the Dracul brothers in medieval Europe to their return in the present day. Prepare yourself, their first bite will be your last!

Blood Hunger is  definitive and fresh reinvention of the vampire legend. Inspired by the spirit of Bram Stoker’s novel ‘Dracula’, Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu’s novella ‘Carmilla’, ‘Hammer Horror’s’ film series and cult horror ‘The Hunger’.

Out now on paperback and ebook. Watch the trailer here:

My Vampire horror action drama Terminus had it’s first UK showing this October.

Chris Regan of the Movie Bar, Brighton called Terminus , “existential vampire epic successfully crosses violent supernatural hijinks with an arthouse aesthetic to produce a new take on a worn-out genre.”

It had some feedback on Twitter that included a nice comment, “Liked it alot! Nice meditative feel and slick visuals, very interesting take on the genre.”

For me it’s great that Terminus found an audience outside the US and Director Sean P. Parsons’ work is finding a wider audience. You can read the Q and A session about the making of Terminus here
and watch the trailer of Terminus here.

The 45 minute film is available exclusively on Amazon to US customers only.
