Julian M. Coleman is my Woman In Horror today! I met Julian through my friend L. R. Shaw, and am I ever glad I did. Julian writes majestic tales in the mixed genres of sci-fi/fantasy/metaphysical& visionary/ and, of course horror. She is quite an energetic author with a lot more left to put on her horror platter.
One great way to immerse yourself in Julian's writing is to read Cesar ( The Demon Lover's Chronicles Book 1 ). This is the first of three in a series, and is priced at FREE. Can't beat that, can you? What's more, this great book was the winner of the IAN 2016 OUTSTANDING Paranormal/Supernatural Book of the Year.
Do you need any more reason to discover another favorite author? I don't think so.
Happy reading, my friends.
WINNER of the IAN 2016 OUTSTANDING Paranormal/Supernatural Book of the Year.
A Demon’s Obsession Knows No Bounds
Rachel and Angelina Thrust are loving sisters, driven from their bayou home by the brutal murders of their parents. Although they believe they’re safe, their enemies wait nearly a decade to deliver demonic revenge.
The sisters' parents had been leaders of a religious sect who denounced the practice of using dark power. Because of their principles, they were betrayed and murdered by some in their clan. Rachel unleashes a firestorm on the mob which gives them time to escape. The sisters and their followers settle in Virginia where they find peace.
That is, until César.
César is the handsome, but insidious weapon called up from Hell by the sisters' enemies, the Trinity clan. César is ordered to turn Rachel. Instead, he focuses his carnal desires on Angelina. He seduces, rapes and nearly kills the younger sister, which forces Rachel to use her dark gifts to save her sister's life. Angelina emerges from near death as a vampire/priestess/zombie hybrid with the blood of undead pulsing through her veins.
Rachel agonizes over Angelina's unholy change. She sends her sister to her mentor and spiritual guide, Auntie. Rachel hopes that Auntie can restore Angelina's humanity. But no one foresees César’s unrelenting pursuit of Angelina. His lust evolves into an obsession.
Angelina must fight to not only to regain her humanity, but also to save the lives and souls of those she loves from the demon, César.
I'm a 2016 IAN Paranormal/Supernatural Award Winning author who grew up in Richmond, Virginia, but I'm not a dainty Southern Belle. My family was poor and my childhood was harsh. I used to suffer from bad dreams. I used to dream about demons. I believe those nightmares were worse than the poverty.
The demons used to wait until I was in sleep-paralysis to scare the crap out of me. If I was lucky, they hid in the shadows. I wasn't always lucky. As I grew older, they weren't always hideous. To this day, I believe that sometimes true evil is seductive, even beautiful.
There are things you don't outgrow. You learn to cope. I did that by writing about demons.
But growing up I had allies. I discovered that love transcends nightmares. I'm a dog lover and on several fortunate occasions my dogs entered my dream worlds and saved me.
As an author, I write about seductive demons and mischievous pooches. If you want a chuckle then read about my canine diva.
But, you may want to take a darker path with me. You may want to meet my demons. If that's the case, then I want you to be scared with me -- is that so wrong? I don't just want to scare you, though. I want you to care about the characters. Because if you care about them, then you will be afraid for them. You may also feel their fears.
Who knows, you could have nightmares about beautiful demons, too.
