“Rhesus A” Comes Back

Happy news just in time for Christmas and the New Year: “Rhesus A – a Vanguard Newborn” about our favourite baby vamp, Zetty, has been re-published just in time for those intrigued readers.

Though the edition that is being published is the original hardcopy only, which includes the original draft version of the first chapter or-so of “Lilith”, there are plans afoot to get “Rhesus A” edited at some stage in the future. Sadly, an error during the extremely late stages of writing saw all the formatting of the book lost. So I thank my lucky stars that the book even survived! However, there is no timeline on possible editing.

For what will possibly be a limited time you can buy the hardcopy version (all 424 pages) of “Rhesus A” from Amazon (link coming asap, and CreateSpace: https://www.createspace.com/3790494)

Teaser: “O-Negative”, Chapter One (Sequel To “Rhesus A”)

Posted in O-Negative, Rhesus A - a Vanguard Newborn, Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 22, 2013 by Kaden Brown

Things are beginning to roll here Down Under, where winter is setting-in and work is consuming if not all, then most of my waking hours. Thankfully I do get some time off (for good behavior?) therefore getting time to write is not completely impossible.

Productive I have been, and in the probably rather prolonged build-up to the sequel to my first novel, “Rhesus A”, (which is about newborn vampire Ashley Zetterburg’s attempts to adjust to life as a Ward of the Vampyre Council and new member of the Vanguards, the secretive Black Society which specializes in spying and infiltrating human and vampire groups) maybe excuses for delays have niggled and eaten at me.

“O-Negative” carries-on our heroine’s journey as she returns from overseas and starts her training as a spy. She is in for a mighty shock, not only at what profession she chose to become, but upon discovering secret human farms and a way of life she had never believed true, she realizes her own hypocrisy and tragic ethical choices.

Ashley may not be able to change the Black Society, but her importance gives her something even her new friends can never imagine – influence and the power to lead.

Without any further delay, here is Chapter One of “O-Negative” (Ashley Zetterburg book 2):

Vanguard LA

Posted in Rhesus A - a Vanguard Newborn, Uncategorized, Vanguard - Coven with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 2, 2012 by Kaden Brown

One of the Vampire Societies is that of the Vanguards… so it is with some bemusement that Zetty is sent to the Vanguard Club to work, alongside fellow vamp, Arkady. It is Ashley’s first job and one that she grows to love. It’s the launching pad for some of the adventures and events that almost overwhelm her.

So, I thought I would show you what the Vanguard Club looks like. Yep, it is a real club, right in the heart of LA…

It is a pretty big club, much larger than what it looks like from outside. Plus, it is a favourite of the stars – performers and patrons alike – who want to be seen out and about, with the beautiful people. Hollywood at its best! If or when you visit the City of Angels, this a club you have got to experience.

“Rhesus A” Withdrawn Temporarily

Posted in Rhesus A - a Vanguard Newborn, Uncategorized, Update, Vanguard - Coven with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 31, 2012 by Kaden Brown

Just letting people know that Rhesus A has been pulled from sale. This means that there should be no new hardcopy or e-book versions on sale. Having said this, I am sure that some local shops and niche suppliers may still have copies available. Likewise with second-hand copies.

Books 1 and 2 of the Ashley Zetterburg series (Rhesus A and Vanguard Coven) will be edited and released at some stage in the future. A major prompt in this decision was the following review on Amazon:

New!                  JugsMacguyver reviewed Rhesus A

So close…                 6 July 2012
                    The actual storyline is great. Well paced, engaging characters, not your average vampire book. Sadly, this was hard to find through the infuriating spelling errors, grammatical errors and words that were completely omitted. It really doesn’t appear that the book was proof read at all. It’s also a bit strange that the British main character swings between calling her mother mum and mom sentence by sentence. Disappointing…
It is an enticing review, honest and informative. And I agree with it totally. So, off to the editor it is. Maybe that teaches me for not getting the manuscript edited in the first place!

Some WTF Questions of Lilith

Posted in Lilith, Rhesus A - a Vanguard Newborn, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on October 23, 2012 by Kaden Brown

Heck, most of these questions I can’t answer – or even provide a hint of the answer, lest I spoil the story. You may want to figure out the answers as you read the book. The questions I’ve provided are in no particular order:

1. How did Lilith get so hooked on heroin?

2. Why did her sisters kill her?

3. Is Lilith a vampire?

4. WTF is Lilith?

5. Is she good, or bad?

6. Who or what are the Dark Immortals?

7. What on Earth are Antediluvians?

8. Lilith has a BFF?

9. If Barry is gay, then why did his boyfriend move out?

10. Are Lilith and Ruth lovers?

11. Why did Samael treat Lilith so kindly, and not hurt her?

12. Was Lilith a real being?

13. Samarra is in Iraq not Persia (Iran)! Isn’t it?

14. What happened to Kasparek? Did he become immortal too?

15. Does Ruth die?

16. Does Aytal kill Lilith?

50/50 – Is It M1 Here I Come?

Posted in Lilith, Rhesus A - a Vanguard Newborn, Update, Vanguard - Coven with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 22, 2012 by Kaden Brown

Two months have passed, the fruit trees have grown leaves, the weather has switched to summer (well, my summer – it’s still spring here), mum has been at home for two weeks without visiting hospital (whew!), my cash flow is about to stop, and my writing has stopped.

So that means I face certain choices, namely, do I stay in Adelaide, or do I return to the UK? Sounds simple, and it is, unless one begins to examine all the factors involved. I won’t go into them here (I do talk about them elsewhere… if you know where to look, under my real name), but these things tend to have a complicating influence upon the decision-making process.

Yeah, I could go the airport right now and book the next flight home. That would be a huge surprise to those with whom I have grown to know and care about, plus my mum would be suddenly left here too. Without warning. To resolve this problem I have given myself until the end of November to establish a sustainable income here in South Australia. And I won’t lie: finding a job here is proving oddly fraught with difficulty. If a job offer comes-up before the end of November I’ll take it and stay here; if there is no offer, then I book the next plane outta here.

On the issue of writing, Lilith will be published as a short novel. Hopefully, the brilliant editor I have chosen will stay with me and help me see it through (fingers crossed). Vanguard Coven is coming along nice. The story-line is developing. Unlike Rhesus A, VC is being meticulously planned! I know that when things do go to the editor Rhesus A will be going too. So my man may be snowed-under. Part of the aim of returning to Manchester in the UK (actually, Liverpool is more or less my home) is to get back to some solid writing, the sort where I can hammer-out a chapter in an afternoon. Here with mum in South Australia that is literally impossible – the environment is waaay to restimulative for me.

All this means that the next time you hear from me I may be reporting from Manchester… woohoo.
