Author Guest Post & Giveaway: H.P Mallory (Blog Tour)

Please welcome H.P Mallory to the blog today!

Since I've written about Knight and Dulcie, I thought a third guest post should be about the vampire who seems to constantly attract admirers...Bram. I chose the name Bram as a pun on Bram Stoker, the writer and creator of Dracula. As Bram mentions in his interview with Dulcie (Dulcie is writing a book about him) he came before Bram Stoker. And, Bram's vanity really knows no bounds, a good example of this is when he tells Dulcie he imagines the character of Dracula was created in his image.

I wanted Bram to be mysterious and suave, unpredictable and not necessarily good but not all bad--sort of like what I imagine the quintessential vampire to be. Bram is three hundred years old and English. He's self centered, materialistic, vain and sexy. Dulcie definitely wants to keep him on her good side because he walks the line between law abiding and rule breaking, allowing her a bridge to the criminals of Splendor.

Physically, Bram is very attractive--he's tall with dark hair and light eyes. But, I think the real attraction with Bram is in his personality. Dulcie knows he's sexually interested in her but she's also convinced that's the extent of his attraction to her--that he's stuck in the thrill of the chase. And while Dulcie likes Bram, she doesn't trust him and she really doesn't take him seriously. And even though she can admit he's attractive and she's attracted to him, she'd never let that attraction get out of hand--mostly because Bram and her best friend, Sam, have a romantic history.

I've created fan pages for Dulcie, Knight, Quillan and Bram on facebook (please friend them, if you're interested) and I would say the majority of the conversations include Bram. It seems we just can't get over our vampires!

About the author:

Hi, I'm HP Mallory and I've written two series, the first about a fairy in law enforcement (To Kill A Warlock and A Tale of Two Goblins) and the second about a witch who can bring back the dead (Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble and Toil and Trouble).

I'm a mongo fan of anything that goes bump in the night and Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! (Quick tangent--the best costume I've ever worn was last year when I went as the Headless Horseman and my baby was my Jack-O-Lantern head!) I've always loved the Twilight Zone Marathons and if I ever saw a ghost, I think I'd wet myself.

I grew up in California although I've lived abroad in the UK (England and Scotland--woo hoo, gotta love those kilts!)

I'd categorize my writing as a blend of suspense, humor, light horror, and romance with a sprinkle of fantasy to tie everything together! If you are all about fairies and witches and vampires (oh my!), you love a good alpha warlock and you like men who get a little hairy during a full moon, I got the goods.

  1. Very cool contest!!

    deadtossedwaves at gmail dot com

  2. Sounds like fun!

    Is her writing like Molly Harpers?

  3. I must admit, I've been guilty of some sexy talk with Bram on Facebook and I can tell you the man is a sweet talker. I love Knight in the series but there's something about Bram - past the fact that he's a sexy vampire - that I love. You just keep going back to him. Thanks for the insight into Bram H.P. and good luck to those that enter the giveaway. This book is amazing!

  4. As much of a cad as Bram is, he is still one very sexy Vampire. That is why I have photos of him at the beach. But sometimes I wonder if Dulcie really might like him, because if she thought he was only after her for the chase, you would think she would just get it overwith, so Bram can move on:)

  5. I think Bram and Sam should get together, I think she still likes him and Dulcie...doesn't. Just my opinion. It is still fun to read the banter between Bram and everyone else. The Vamp can hold his own.

  6. I've read the first Dulcie book and liked it a lot. There are so many sexy guys in there. Can't wait to read this!

    @Juju, HP’s writing is fun, but not as heavy on the snark & sarcasm as Molly Harpers.
