Book Description

A rollicking, rip-roaring double-dose of action and adventure from the world of the Hollywood Vampires!

Starring Clarisse, Brandi, Donita, and Katheryne, Love, Red Wine, & Magick's two novellas take you down south, back in the 1960's -- when men were men, women kicked ass, and horrible things lurked in the dark hearts of ancient swamps!

In "The Ballad of Thomas Brown," a mysterious traveling bluesman by the name of Tom Brown comes to Seward County, Mississippi and is menaced by the town's local -- and dangerous -- racist idiot, Mort. Out to steal 'ol Tom Brown's hard-earned pay, Mort and his gang are foiled time and again by the resourceful guitarist...

But when the sun goes down, the dark secret of Mort's questionable lineage comes to the forefront -- along with a healthy dose of frustrated rage -- and turns a figurative monster into a real one!

Fortunately for 'ol Tom has a few angels on his shoulder in the form of the Sisters of Fury -- an all-female, all-vampire biker gang who've stopped in Seward to listen to some good old country blues. With the likes of sultry, clever Clarisse and relentless powerhouse Brandi on his side, 'ol Tom's odds are a lot better than they were before...

Or are they?

Meanwhile, over in "Linda Marie," Jimbeau Getty's one true gal Linda Marie has been mentally hijacked by a sly necromancer and the disembodied spirit of HIS one true gal, leaving poor old Jimbeau in a bad way. Thankfully, Jimbeau's got some formidable friends in the form of half-vampires Donita and Katheryne -- a gypsy and witch duo who are best friends, lovers, and extremely loyal to their pals.

With gentle Katheryne and loudmouth Donita in tow, Jimbeau plunges into the dark depths of an eldritch Louisiana swamp in search of Linda Marie -- while the necromancer and his lady love are out to open a gateway to another dimension and turn loose a monstrous horror from beyond the veil of time...

A horror that could spell the end of everything.

But Jimbeau and the girls don't know that yet. They just want to get Linda Marie back -- and find themselves battling hordes of zombies and a gigantic abomination made from hundreds of human corpses! And then...

When the true stakes of the game are revealed, it's a cataclysmic showdown of cosmic proportions as the fate of the world rests in the hands of a belligerent gypsy and her air-sick companion! Hold on tight, folks -- it's gonna be a bumpy ride.

Love, Red Wine, & Magick disposes of the usual angst and drama found in vampire fiction for a hard-hitting, hilarious, and totally human perspective, bringing you thrills, chills, spills... and laughs aplenty!

About the Author

Matt R. Jones is a stubbornly independent fellow hailing from the American Midwest that writes off-the-wall vampire and horror fiction for fun and a little bit of profit. He'd like to do this for a living someday, but for the moment, he's just happy that people from Great Britain to Australia to New Zealand have been reading and loving his stories since 1998.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Potent Double Shot of ... Rapture March 28, 2011
Format:Paperback
"The Ballad of Thomas Brown" - Love & Red Wine - an excellent introduction to the characters of Clarisse and Brandi (full vampires). Recommended for fans of authors such as Nancy A. Collins, this tale builds to a very surprising twist at the end of a blues-filled, action-packed night on the town.

"Linda Marie" - Love & Magick - a more detailed look into the character interactions and combined abilities of Donita and Katheryne (half vampires). Recommended for fans of authors such as H.P. Lovecraft, this tale focuses on the more occult capabilities of Mr. Jones' half vampires and culminates with a powerful and destructive magickal battle.

These are two tales that you shouldn't miss out on. If you're not sure you can handle the weighty heft of "Unholy War" and "Sex, Blood & Rock 'n Roll" then this is a good book to start your collection with. Since these tales are set long before the events in "Unholy War" you won't have to worry about spoiling that particular adventure, and each novella is an excellent sampling of the author's talent.

More About the Author

When I first started writing, I caught flack from potential agents and publishers because my stories didn't shamelessly copy Anne Rice -- the hip thing to do in the late 90's and early 2000's -- and nowadays, I'm told to hang it up because I don't write like Stephanie Meyer.

The vampire stories I write -- while taking regular forays into dark, bloody territory -- often have more in common with over-the-top action movies like Desperado, or profanely hilarious comedies like Clerks.

My characters aren't cardboard cut-outs, either -- they're PEOPLE who happen to be vampires, and as such, they'll act like you or I would in a given situation... and they don't always make the right choices. Nor are they all-knowing, all-powerful... because they're human.

Now, don't get me wrong -- I LOVE vampire fiction of all sorts, and Nancy Collins is my personal favorite vampire author! But to tell you the truth...

I can't write brooding, gothic prose to save my butt, and angsty teen drama makes me giggle. If I tried to fake it, it would totally suck, so instead I write action-packed vampire yarns full of swearing, tomfoolery, and my own observations about life. I want to make your heart pound with excitement, and I want you to laugh so hard you have to put the book down...

Which usually happens when you read "The Thing In Stacey's Garage," found in Sex, Blood, & Rock 'n Roll. I've had people from New Zealand to South Africa to Canada tell me that ridiculous, profanity-laden story brought them to tears of laughter, and it makes my day every time.

And really -- how often do you come across vampire fiction that makes you laugh yourself stupid?!

So while I'm advised to alter my stories in favor of whatever trend is popular in vampire fiction, I can't do it. That would be a betrayal of my heart and the readers who've stuck with me for over a decade through thick and thin. At the end of the day, it's YOU that keeps me inspired and keeps me working at this -- I'm not here to make the mainstream crowd happy... I want to make YOU happy.

So I do it all myself -- for us.

Writing the Hollywood Vampires stories -- and a few other projects -- is something I do out of love, not because I'm gonna get rich. I work a full-time "day-job" as a marketing consultant / copywriter, so that's what pays my bills. Now mind you, I'd LOVE to get rich doing writing vampire fiction -- but that's not my primary motivation...

I do this stuff because we both love it. Period.

Every e-mail, kind word, piece of fan art, or encouragement you send me is worth every hour of work I put into the Hollywood Vampires universe, and I'm hooked.
