Immortal War The Tears of Lilith is now available at www.lulu.com/spotlight/CandaceBowser I have to say it was very hard to bid her goodbye and release her into the world. The story of Lilith is by far my favorite part of the Origins tale, giving insight into the woman who created the Samarra Six vampires and the torment of the life she faces as the only pure source of vampirism. Lovely and deadly, Lilith's life is a complicated one filled with the different paths she must take to protect her children; the vampire race.

Today someone asked me why I write so widely varied books....Well, I really did not have to give that question very much thought before answering. i am a varied being. I do not like a single type of music, a single type of food, or only a single type of art. I like it all. When I sit down to write, I never know what I will be writing or what's going to happen. It just depends on the day. I write because it gives me pleasure for a multitude of reasons. Not only does it give me the satisfaction of being able to express myself, I occassionally get to experience the joy of meeting or speaking with someone who truly enjoyed what they had read. So, yes, I dabble in many genres. Why be limited? I enjoy writing horror, suspense, mysteries, adventure, and sometimes I even blend a little romance into the mix. I don't write because I can; I write because I have the will to tell a story. Quite personally, I wouldn't have it any other way. Never let anyone limit you, and you might just be surprised what happens.....
Tomorrow marks a monumentous occassion.....my birthday! I am excited about the prospects ahead of me. I have several submissions in for the Wolves of Dullahan. (Did I mention that I have all of my books discounted at www.lulu.com?) Working on the final stages of Immortal War The Tears of Lilith, which is very exciting. I hate to say I'm almost a little melancholy over letting her loose on the world. She is my baby, and being that she is the first vampire, the world may not be ready for a baby like that! All kidding aside, I am very excited about the pending release. Lilith is my favorite of the characters in the Origins series. She is compelling to say the least, and her story begged to be told. Just as with all of my books, I put a lot of research into Lilith (known as Lilitu in the Sumerian Pantheon) which I enjoyed greatly. The Cradle of Civilization is a fascinating subject to me; who better to tell the tale of the creation of the vampire race than the woman who was responsible for it all. Hope to see you at the website for my books soon. All of them are first run releases. Don't miss out on the opportunity to get a first run copy before the second editions are released. Once the first run releases are pulled, they will not be available again.
On another note, now that I am released from the contract I had with my first publisher for Origins Blood in the Sand, the revised version is available at www.lulu.com. It is free of the errors that happened on the first printing and it includes 75 pages of missing material.
Have a blessed day! As always, thank you for stopping by and please take advantage of the discounts at LULU. They won't last forever!

Well, it looks like my letter to get out of my contract on my first book is awaiting me in the mail. A certified letter came today, but the office is closed so I will have to wait to retrieve it from the post office on Monday. What a happy moment. Though I could not have been happier when Origins Blood in the Sand was published, I had a publisher who did not support me. I am currently doing a revision of the book and hope to have it up for sale on LULU and OFF THE BOOKSHELF by the first week of APRIL! YAHOO!!!!
ONLY A TRULY EXCITING NOTE....
I am working on a new novel entitled the Wolves of Rocklick Hollow which is loosely based on a bedtime story my father used to tell me when I was a liitle girl. The short essence of the story is posted on my about me page. I have only been working on the Wolves of Rocklick for about a week and already have over 100 pages completed. It will be very different from any other book published about werewolves. After I posted the story, I received several emails about whether or not I would be turning my father's story into a novel, so though the story lay dormant for many years, it has been revived. I can honestly say I have enjoyed working on this book far more than the others because I am getting to do it with my dad. Keep checking in for updates. I will post the availibility of Origins Book 1 as soon as she is ready. As always, may your day be blessed and thanks for your support.
Your suggestions wanted!
I am in the process of working on a new vampyr novel called I am Vampyr about a vampie who hunts his own kind and kills them in the hopes of becoming the sole survivng vampire of the Dorian Strain, one of the thirteen covens of vampires born from the Prince of Darkness. I am looking for a very unusual vampire name for the Prince of Darkness. The lead character in the book is named Florian Reinhardt. I like the name Lazzurus for the first name of the Prince of Darkness but am undecided. Please list your suggestions on the GUESTBOOK page. Here is a sample of the names of the other vampires in the book.
