What if you had been given the gift of healing and could save those you loved? And furthermore, discovered you could save the one you love from a vampire’s kiss. There is a catch; of course, the cost of such a healing could mean your own death…
Ellie Hightower is discovering such gifts in the novel, Forever Man by January Bain. She is telepathic, young and bright and has been running from these new found gifts all the way to Nome, Alaska where she encounters the man of her dreams, Mike Stone and an ancient evil force out to take him away from her. Will having goodness and light on her side be enough to save them from Katrianna, a newly resurrected vampire that looks to enslave Mike in her nefarious web?
Vampire versus Human/Part 1
My vampires have a saying, “Life sucks, and then you don’t die.”
When you don’t die, according to the vampires that populate my novels, it brings up a whole host of concerns and considerations. Most worrying is memory. How much “baggage” can you take if your life is never going to be over? If the making of a vampire goes well, you face remembering all that happened in your human existence and all that will happen in your vampire existence. Now that can suck big time! It creates such hardship that many vampires, during the course of their centuries of undead life, will choose “time-out” or captus ut humus, the Latin words for “going to ground”.
How many humans require a refreshing of their batteries and how hard it that to achieve in our busy lives? As a teacher and author, I often cannot tune off the voices in my head, be it a student or a character that is pressing for attention. I’m reminded of a line in a move, For The Love Of The Game, where the Kevin Costner character thinks and/or says the line, “Clear the mechanism,” each time before he makes a pitch. It is the author equivalent of becoming still enough in our minds to find and follow our muse. These short spells of captus ut humus refresh and revive us from the baggage of our lives. Just be glad it’s just the baggage of a single lifetime and not the centuries or millenniums a vampire endures. Now that would require a major time out!
