Featured Friday: Vampire Syndrome by Daven Anderson

Happy Halloween! 

Today's Featured Friday is perfect for this season. Can you imagine what it would be like to be turned into a Vampire?

Title: Vampire Syndrome: Book 1 of the Vampire Syndrome Saga

Author:  Daven Anderson

Book description:
Can Special Olympics champion Jack Wendell survive, now that he’s been turned into a vampire? All Jack wants is to be accepted as a valued member of the vampire community. But he can’t do this when Chief Venator (vampire law enforcer) Damien Tepesh has ordered Jack to be killed. Fortunately, Jack wins the respect of a powerful ally. Lilith Morrigan, President of the Vampires, hides Jack from the ruthless Venators and gives him a chance to prove his worth. But she cannot stop her husband Damien from targeting Jack. Damien summons Romania’s Chief Venator Zetania Vinescu to Colorado to help him hunt Jack. Lilith over-rides her husband and orders Zetania to protect Jack from the Venators. As Damien and Lilith battle over control of Jack, a new threat emerges. A space-alien Pure vampire has come to Colorado, specifically to kidnap Jack. Even if Damien and Lilith settle their differences, can they keep Jack safe from the Pures?

Author Bio:
Daven Anderson spends his nights modifying cars for the Council of Thirteen's elite Venator law enforcers; because when you're a Vampire, there's no such thing as "too much horsepower." Daven brings supercharged concept cars to life, so the Venators have the power they need to chase rabid vampires, chupacabras, cattle-mutilating aliens, vampire hunters, and whoever or whatever else the Council deems a threat to the security of the Vampire community.

The Venators love to have long conversations with Daven while he works on their cars. Unbeknownst to them, Daven has been secretly recording the Venators' tales, using them as the basis for the Vampire Syndrome saga. After a long night's work, Daven plays back the tapes, transcribes the best excerpts and sends them as "fiction writing" to the unsuspecting staff members at PDMI Publishing.

The normal people's constant misrepresentations and misunderstandings of Vampires over the last three centuries, culminating in the most recent shimmering, over-emoting caricatures of "vampires", finally motivated Daven to "hide the truth in plain sight" with the Vampire Syndrome saga. Thanks to Daven's transcriptions, with the assistance of PDMI Publishing, the normal world can at long last read the tales of the Vampires' elite law enforcers, without the sugar-coated glittering stardust that passes for modern "vampire fiction."

Daven has hired a professional double, who was previously a grocery store cashier, to promote his novels and work in PDMI's marketing department, so Daven can continue to chronicle the Venator's adventures for future volumes of the Vampire Syndrome saga.

#WIP Jasmine's Got Talent! Illustrations

As most of you will know by now, I'm currently working on illustrating the 3rd book in the Jasmine Dreams series for author +Maria Rochelle. Jasmine's Got Talent! is turning out to be the most fun yet and I'm sure the book will be a huge success.

Today I thought I'd introduce you to some of the characters by sharing with you a few of the character cards. (If you remember, Maria ran a photo contest on her Facebook page and these characters are therefore based on real pets that had received the most votes during the contest- You can see the initial sketches I did from the photo's here). 

These are just a few of the characters featured in the book:
