On the last weekend of October, I participated in HallowRead, held in Ellicott City, MD. It was fun to wander from one haunted venue to the next and share panel-time with other writers of dark fantasy, including Jordan K. Rose.
Jordan’s readers know she’s a writer of vampire fiction, but what they might not realize – she is delightful in person. As HallowRead drew to a close, Jordan was packing up in preparation to catch a train home. On my way out the door loaded down with a stack of copies of The Enchanted Skean and The Greener Forest, I stopped by her book-signing area to chat and taste one of the scrumptious chocolate truffles she’d brought for attendees to eat. As I praised both her writing and the chocolates, she handed me the tray of truffles.
“Enjoy!” she said. “I’m not carrying these back on the train.”
I thanked her, took the mouth-watering candies (and box of my books) to my car, and drove home trying not to eat the chocolates. Sigh. I succeeded in limiting the number of truffles consumed to only 3!
So when I learned that Jordan’s Black Magic Rose, Book One in The Alliance Series was available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Kobo, I wanted to share with my readers a bit about her and her newest novel.
First, a small bite of her bio:
A few years back Jordan received a copy of Twilight from her husband as part of her anniversary gift. By the end of that week she’d read the entire series and moved onto Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. Eight weeks and eighteen vampire books later the idea for her first book, Perpetual Light came to her followed very quickly by Eva Prim.
In October of 2013 The Demon Mistress, the first Eva Prim Novel became available along with four short stories. For continual updates on Eva please join the Snack Of The Week Club at www.evaprim.com
Jordan is a member of the national Romance Writers of America organization and several chapters. When she’s not writing about one vampire or another Jordan enjoys spending time with her husband, Ken and their lovable Labrador, Dino, on the beautiful beaches of Southern Rhode Island.”
And now, a little taste of her new book, Black Magic Rose, from the blurb: “Is it possible to reduce the amount of workplace violence in an organization run by vampires and werewolves? Sofia Engle, the new Employee Relations Manager at Cader House Hospital is about to find out, and she may not like the answer, or the series of firsts she experiences: first human employee at Cader House, first day tardy, first kiss with a dead guy. Well, maybe kissing the dead guy wasn’t the worst of it after all.
For nearly 600 years Dragomir Petrescu has fought for The Alliance. As one of the most skilled warriors the Alliance has ever seen he’s killed a lot of people and won many difficult battles. But his newest human adversary is turning out to be a worthier opponent than any he’s met. Just the scent of her disarms him, never mind her endless policies and silly ideals about civility.
Can he possibly keep her safe from Alliance enemies, hospital employees and himself? The term Employee Relations is about to have a whole new meaning.”
