Born in the East End of London, Jevron McCrory’s sincere love of the vampire is somewhat humbling.

As affecting as they are unique in a rapidly expanding field, Jevron’s blood drenched tales are short, sharp shocks that still somehow manage to retain a bitter sweet romanticism.

Swan Song was Jevron’s emotional debut novella with Vamplit Publishing. It unflinchingly portrayed an altogether too real scenario of loneliness and despair that, with the inclusion of a vampire lover as damaged as her male counterpart, built to a heart rending climax.

Hotel Nomad, Jevron's first FULL LENGTH novel, is finally complete! Eventually, at some point, it will find a publisher. As soon as the author can find the time to start shopping it around. Stay tuned.

Whoa.

I haven't updated this blog since May 2014, the month that I finally completed work on Hotel Nomad, my four-years-in-the-making vampire hotel drama.

I had planned to start sending out query emails to publishers and, most importantly, agents, to see if I could house my new work.

Then I had a daughter.

This truly read like an author who'd been given the chance to pen a Freddy Krueger novel - spent a weekend viewing the movies, then took out an unfinished manuscript and shoved the character into the final act.

This book is the same experience as the movie; campy creepy fun!

I've been agonising over this.

While the book is truly a masterwork of period piece erotica and horror, using the VERY original approach of letters and diaries to lay out the story, which is ingenious, the ending, well, it sucks.

Well, it does!

A hypnotic book of revelationary power with a prose to die for, this may very well be in my top three favourite novels of all time.

So confident and complete a debut that it's shocking.

By now, Barker had already written the Books of Blood and the Hellraiser novella so while it seems like an author's first work, he was hardly an amateur.

My problem with this book is my problem with every Stephen King book; it needs tighter editing.

Stephen King's power is his concepts. The man is an IDEA machine. His real talent is how he can take the ordinary and make it s

There's something special about this book. Clive knew it as well.

The concept is ludicrous but the execution and pay off is worth the journey. If anything, it feels like a trial run for what Clive would later do with Imajica.
