Here’s a quick feature on a great, up-and-coming horror writer named Kara Rochelle!
Here’s a bit about this dark lady, and her upcoming novel Wicked Grin, in her own words:
“I’m a 21-year-old college student in Southern Illinois, US, attending Shawnee Community College. I have a lifelong love of horror, whether it be books, movies, or music. Wicked Grin is my response to Twilight, sort of in revenge for how it “pussified” my favorite monster, the vampire. Besides that, the inspiration behind it is a combination of a book by Gregory Lamberson called Johnny Gruesome, the cult classic movie The Lost Boys, and the vampire-themed rock album Back In Blood by my favorite band The 69 Eyes. If I had to sum up Wicked Grin in a few words: Sex, blood, and rock n’ roll.”
Well for us she ticks all the right boxes for a great horror writer. I can also confirm that Wicked Grin looks awesome! I was fortunate enough to read the first half of the novel a while ago and to be honest I wish I didn’t. When I finished I NEEDED more. I had to know how it ended. I had to know the fates of the characters. I just needed MORE! And could I have it? No, because it hadn’t been written yet!
Take it from me readers – This is one of the best vampire novels I’ve read since I started working at Erebus Horror – Maybe even EVER! I don’t know yet. But what I do know is that when this book is published, I’m going to urge every single vampire-lover I know to go out and buy it. It will be the wisest investment you’ve made in a long time.
