About this author

Travis Luedke is a husband, father, and author of Urban Fantasy Thriller, Paranormal Romance, Contemporary Fantasy, Young Adult Fiction, and Sci-fi. He is currently catching a 3rd degree sunburn in San Antonio, Texas, and loving every minute of it.

My current publishing project is a multi-author box set that's available ONLY through July 2014: http://www.amazon.com/Spice-Box-Sixte...

Apart from that I am working on The Nightlife Moscow.

This novel will take your favorite vampires Aaron and Michelle, and pit them against the Moscow underworld of a powerful Russian mafia vampire, his security entourage, and a surprise twist of the aftermath of the confrontation.

In Moscow Aaron and Michelle get a little too up close and personal with the wolf pack they encountered back in London. Wolves and vampires don't mix so well, and that will come full circle in Moscow as they attempt to work together to face the entrenched power base of vampire Dmitri, a long-standing enemy of the wolf pack.

The cast is heavy with new faces, loads of Russian women, violence, mayhem, and of course.... sex. Not just any kind of sex, vampire sex, and lots of it.

There were some films that inspired scenes and characters, and other books I have read as well. It wasn't until I sat down to write the novel that certain aspects really started to gel.

I intended to have this man, Adrian, as an everyman, average guy, ex-military working now as a paramedic. That's not what I ended up with.

Adrian, the hero of our story, is a borderline sociopath who is struggling to fit into the world and be what the rest of us consider 'normal.'

In addition to having some surprising character traits, I also ended up doing quite a bit of research on the mafia-cartel scene surrounding San Antonio. There is a long-gruesome history of Mexican Mafia and other prison-based gangs in San Antonio, and this made for a fascinating study.

You'll find some of this history incorporated into the novel.

Its a bit difficult to categorize Nightlife San Antonio. To mish-mash it all into one sentence: Urban Fantasy Erotic Romance Crime Thriller.

A mouthful, I know, but, it truly is a cross-genre novel.(less)

Travis needs your vote for the cover art of THE NIGHTLIFE SAN ANTONIO!



All she wanted was to escape the police. All he wanted was to get laid. They both got more than they bargained for.

She needed to hide. With no memory of even her name, she didn't know from who. She only knew she wasn't safe.

EMT on call, Adrian Faulkner resuscitates a beautiful woman after a Mexican mafia shootout. He can't explain why he picks her up in the hospital parking lot three days later and then ducks the San Antonio police and the Feds. Well, the hot sex might have something to do with it.

Adrian soon learns she is much more than a damsel in distress, and he’s stuck with her.

It isn't long before the past she cannot remember begins to catch up with them both…

THE NIGHTLIFE SAN ANTONIO is a non-stop thrill ride through the shadowy borderworld of drug cartel politics and vampires--and sex.

Towards the beginning of December I will have a manuscript that will need pre-pub Beta read.

All my novels are adult PNR/UF with an edge of erotica and very graphic violence. ADULT reading material.

The first is a FREE download here on Goodreads and everywhere else (Amazon, B&N, etc..) "The Nightlife New York". You can read and review that if you like.

The second in the series needs reviews. "The Nightlife New York". I just released it a few days ago. Contact me by email for a manuscript. Its listed on Amazon KDP select right now.

Thanks,

Travis
