Not Your Teenage Sister's Vampires
Tyr and Loki are the kind of vampires who live for their own pleasure, not yours. They feel no remorse. They view human beings as livestock or sex objects. And after a thousand years of sex and destruction seducing and murdering the prettiest girls in the room, they have become two of the most diabolical serial killers of all time.
But following a violent feud that separates the brothers for over a decade, Tyr hides himself away in a house on the outskirts of Las Vegas where he falls in love with a terminally ill young woman named Eva, an act deemed punishable by death by the fabled vampire council known as The Chosen.
When a mysterious messenger arrives at his home, Tyr fears both Loki and The Chosen have tracked him down, forcing him to protect both himself and the dying young woman who is teaching him to feel.
Thicker Than Water is a vampire thriller focusing on 100 years of immortal, hedonistic life, from the slummy brothels of the American Wild West, to the bright lights of Las Vegas circa 1999. The story weaves together vampires, brothel owners, cowboys, prostitutes, and gallons of innocent blood in an orgy of violence, sex, revenge, romance, betrayal, and brotherly love.
The “Blood Brothers” Vampire Series
Thicker Than Water marks the first novel in the Blood Brothers vampire series. Drawing inspiration from Norse mythology and the works of Shakespeare, the series spans 1,000 years and half the globe, telling the story of two brothers and the rise and fall of their bloodthirsty clan. The aim of the series is to paint vampires as gods, preying on humanity from the shadows as they steer the events of history.
Each of the four novels in the Blood Brothers series will tell both a present day story and an historical story set sometime within the last 1,000 years, gradually unveiling the mystery of the brothers' origin and the details of their fall.
The second novel in the series, currently titled The Wages of Sin, is planned for release in the second half of 2012. The last two novels will follow in 2013 and 2014 respectively.

A Few Words from the Author
With the state of vampire fiction, I'm almost embarrassed to admit to loving vampires, but I do. As a child, vampire thrillers like Near Dark, The Lost Boys, and Fright Night were my bedtime stories. I didn't want to be an astronaut when I grew up, I wanted to be a vampire. They were sexy, cool, and they were always out for a good time.
They used to be confident, often to a fault. Today they're afraid to talk to girls.
They used to be gluttons. Today they're vegetarians.
They used to drink the blood of virgins. Today they are virgins.
I don't envy them like I used to. I just miss them.
What I'm getting at is this: If you're looking for a vampire to swoon over, to fall in love with, to think about in the tub with scented candles and wine while some soft music plays in the background, you'd probably do well to look elsewhere for a vampire series. But if you're looking for a mean son of a bitch who knows how to play the silky seducer when it suits his needs, well... then you're getting warmer.
