A vampire tale for a adult audience that revolves around faith, death and love; not romantic, but rather a love for a child.
What is "Solstice"?
Some Amazon User Reviews:
"If you like the "House of Night" series by P.C. and Kristen Cast and the "True Blood" series based off of Charlaine Harris' "Sookie Stackhouse" books, then you should like this book." D. Meade
"You not only get a healthy dose of vamps but you get to see an amazing relationship form between a man and a little girl he is helping to take care of. It is one of the most unconventional relationships I have ever encountered but it works for them and it works well." Michelle S.
"Not the typical vampire story. Congratulations for taking it a different direction. Hard to put down, you want to keep turning the pages." Kevinn 11
Set in modern day South Carolina, a determined vampire hunter finds a young female, half breed vampire wanting protection in exchange for information on humans in the middle of the vampire transformation process, which starts a deadly game of cat and mouse.
Gavin has nothing left to lose. He becomes a hunter of humans that are about to turn into vampires who coincidentally also carry a sexually transmitted disease between the victims. During one of his “outings”, Gavin discovers a child named Solstice that is in hiding from other vampires that want her because she is a “day walker”. Gavin agrees to help protect her in exchange for information on the vampires he is looking for. Between obsession and carelessness, they find what Gavin was looking for but after a botched attempt, they are now the prey in the situation.
Confused between his hate for vampires and the love he is developing for a child that he doesn’t know much about, Gavin struggled with his past demons and his faith in the world and humanity. What Gavin doesn’t realize is that Solstice has her own agenda and secrets that are tied to their consistent pursuers. Solstice’s “abilities” are rare and a clan of vampires, mostly consisting of women that were prostitutes, pursues Solstice and the abilities her body and blood contains.

Why do I need help?
I have been fortunate will lots of support from the people who have purchased the novel and read it. In fact Mary Ting, the author of the bestselling "Crossroads" series said that the book was "Gripping...leaves you wanting more."
You may be asking yourselves, "So what's the problem?" The answer to that is that I need marketing for the book.
I am blessed and cursed for being a first time author; bookstores are wary to carry the book in a nutshell. The marketing will allow me to put myself out there to at least 5,000 media entities and even promote "Solstice" on Facebook and Twitter and it will also to used to get a domain name for the webite for the novel and its sequels.
Anyone who writes knows that this a hard way to make a living for some. Most major publishers will not even look at new authors manuscripts anymore without an agent around, so I am taking another route to get the book out to the masses in a different way.
The reviews are good thus far and the product is ready, I just need your help gettingout there better. "Solstice" has the potential to do well in an adult market, it just needs to be out there for people to see. There has been nothing but praise so far and I want others to see what is so special about this series.
