Excerpt:

Help!

Glancing up from my magazine, I turn my head toward the woods that border our property. I stop the porch swing from swaying and I listen . . . but I hear only the sound of Mom’s music floating through the open screen windows.

I glance down to the pond where my younger brother, Kevin, sits. But he’s fine, fishing pole in hand, staring idly at the calm water—just like he’s been for the past hour.

Help!

I lunge to my feet. That’s Travis!

“HELP! SOMEONE!”

I fly down the porch steps, and my bare feet hit the wet morning grass as I take off in a full sprint toward the woods. “Travis!”

My twin brother emerges from the line of pine trees that separate our property from our grandfather’s goat farm.

“Vickie!” Travis screams, hurling himself across our lawn.

Blood is the first thing I see, covering the front of his white V-neck tee and down across his yellow swim trunks. Then his eyes—wild, crazy, and so full of fear that everything within me clenches.

“Mom!” I yell as I keep running toward my brother. “Dad! Uncle Jerry!”

There’s so much blood, but I don’t think he’s hurt, at least not hurt bad because he’s running like he’s okay. We both enter the vegetable garden from opposite ends and seconds later we collide in the middle of the green beans. Sobbing, he falls to his knees.

Behind me I hear my parents yelling, racing toward us. I hear Uncle Jerry. “Travis?” I search his face, his body, trying to run my hands across him to see where or if he’s hurt. “What is it? Talk to me.”

He grips my arms so hard I grimace, and his hazel, tear filled eyes lock onto mine. “In the woods. She—she’s dead.”

Spotlight and Giveaway! THE VAMPIRE, THE HUNTER, AND THE GIRL by Martin Lastrapes (The Vampire and the Hunter trilogy, #1)

The Vampire, the Hunter, and the Girl
by Martin Lastrapes
(The Vampire and the Hunter Trilogy #1)
Publication date: March 18th 2015
Genres: Adult, Horror, Paranormal
Synopsis:

Adam and Jesus (the vampire and the hunter) have an innate antagonism, which is only heightened once they discover they’re competing for the affections of the same girl. Olivia (the girl) is an aspiring author struggling to write a vampire novel. What none of them yet know is there’s a menacing force looming that will change the course of their lives forever. With the first installment of The Vampire and the Hunter Trilogy, Martin Lastrapes has created a vampire tale that is scary, funny, thrilling, and satisfying to the very last drop.

Excerpt:

Jesus dressed in black when he hunted, but it was not for camouflage.  To camouflage yourself from a vampire was to assume that sight was the only sense they used on the prowl.  Should that day come when Jesus was outmatched by a vampire, and all that separated him from death were the few moments it would take for the demon monster to do its worst, it would not be because he hadn’t blended himself with the night.

Everything about vampires was nocturnal, from the hours they kept to their aversion to sunlight.  As evolution would have it, their eyes were made for darkness.  To hide from a vampire in the middle of the night was to swim in the ocean to hide from the sharks.  No, Jesus had more pragmatic reasons for wearing black while hunting vampires.  Bloody reasons that would disgust a sensible person.  Gory reasons that belonged in the theater of the macabre.

For them, he was death incarnate.

He was Jesus the Mexican Vampire Hunter.

Jesus Hector Guerrero had become a vampire hunter as the result of both choice and circumstance.  To look at his life—from his childhood, watching professional wrestling and playing on Daniel’s trampoline, to his adult years, training as a mixed martial artist and smuggling anabolic steroids—it becomes clear that his less-than-straight line into vampire hunting was one that shone with inevitability, like a hungry flame in a dark, dingy cave.  But before he kneeled before the television in awe of Royce Gracie or killed his first vampire in Memorial Park, Jesus hid under his bed, shying away from the world, with nothing but a coloring book and a box of crayons to keep him company.

Jesus was a loner by nature and his mother’s inability to conceive a sibling for him, despite her best and most passionate efforts with Jesus’ father, insured that he would be an only child.  A creative boy with an artistic soul, Jesus loved to draw.  One of his earliest memories was of being in preschool and, all of five years old, standing before a large easel with a blank canvas.  For no particular reason that he could remember, Jesus decided he wanted to paint a tiger.  In his mind’s eye, he saw a tremendous cat with ferocious teeth and tangles of muscles beneath its orange and black stripes.

At the conclusion of about five minutes worth of painting, in which every second was a careful meditation of the patience and diligence that would one day come to define him as a vampire hunter, his canvas displayed nothing more than an indecipherable smattering of orange and black paint.  Of that memory, what Jesus remembers more clearly than anything else, was the frustration that came with his inability to paint the picture he so clearly saw in his imagination.  Jesus abandoned acrylic paint and adopted crayons as his medium of choice, which, of course, led to the inadvertent “disappearance” that would become the centerpiece of his mother’s favorite tale.

Synopsis:

Ellie Jordan’s job is to catch and remove unwanted ghosts. Part detective, part paranormal exterminator, Ellie operates out of Savannah, Georgia, one of the oldest and most haunted cities in North America.

When a family contacts her to deal with a disturbance presence in the old mansion they’ve recently purchased, Ellie first believes it to be a typical, by-the-book specter, a residual haunting by a restless spirit. Instead, she finds herself confronted an evil older and more powerful than she’d ever expected, rooted in the house’s long and sordid history of luxury, sin, and murder. The dangerous entity seems particularly interested in her clients’ ten-year-old daughter.

Soon her own life is in danger, and Ellie must find a way to exorcise the darkness of the house before it can kill her, her clients, or their frightened young child.
