Edward Cullen Sucks


Derek Murphy July 20, 2014 Book reviews, Romania No Comments on Welcome!

A decade ago I thought the vampire craze was dying down. But then we had Twilight, The Vampire Diaries, True Blood, Vampire Academy, Johnny Depp’s Dark Shadows, the artsy vampire flick Only Lovers Left Alive, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Byzantium and a ton more. And besides the TV shows and movies being cranked out by the entertainment industry, there’s also been a resurgence in indie fiction with supernatural and paranormal themes.

As a PhD candidate and researcher into pop culture, literary fiction, symbolism and mythology, folklore and mysticism, with decades of experience living abroad, learning languages and investigating cultural patterns and influences, vampire literature and its connection to Romania and Transylvania is a rich field for me (I’ll be moving to Romania next year to write a book about it).

As a book designer and publisher supporting indie authors, I thought we needed a new website dedicated to book reviews of indie published paranormal romance; a champion of the genre so to speak; a place indie authors can be promoted, either by having their books reviewed or by reviewing other books.

So that’s what this website is all about. Explore around and see how you can get involved.
