I am writing to you because of your interest on a new take on vampires. My novel, Clan of Ash, is a 74,00-word YA paranormal story about the struggle to survive against a society that wants you to fail.
For seventeen-year-old Renelle Montessori, the death of her father has always haunted her. Stacked on with the guilt of being the one responsible makes daily life almost unbearable. When she saves the life of an innocent bystander, she never expected to get drawn into a secret world when she comes face-to-face with the dhampir, Alastair.
Alastair van Edema knows the only way to survive is to adapt. Given only four months to find his Sire or die, he won’t let anything stop him and enlisting a human for help won’t be the last rule he breaks. For Alastair, Renelle represents a sliver of hope while Alastair embodies the chance for Renelle to finally put some demons to rest.
However, in the unforgiving world of vampires and hunters, danger lurks everywhere. With the help of unlikely allies, together, Alastair and Renelle must deal with a jealous vampire and a ruthless hunter as they try to uncover the sinister truth about Alastair’s creation. But time is running out and it’s not only Alastair’s life on the line. When Renelle’s life is put in danger, Alastair must decide if it’s his life he wants to save or hers.
I have a degree in creative writing and I’m currently working towards my teaching certificate. I’ve written about my love of D&D and video games for Gamer Nationz: Welcome Gamer under the penname: GreyCoffee701. My free time is spent snuggling with my cat, playing Dungeons and Dragons, games, and writing on Wattpad. Thanks so much for your time and consideration.
