The Ema Marx series with J.D. Brown

With True Blood, The Vampire Diaries, and Dracula blowing up the TV networks, and a million more vampire-themed books on Amazon, it’s safe to assume we all know someone who is a vampire addict.

Maybe it’s a friend or a co-worker or a family member. Maybe it’s you. You’re not alone. I’m a vampire addict, too.

There’s no need to hold an intervention, being a vampire addict is perfectly normal and might even lead to immortality (let me live in denial, okay?)

If you’re not a vampire addict yourself, chances are you don’t get the allure of ripped abs, everlasting love, and a passion that drives said lover to kill for you. But that’s okay. You don’t need to understand it to support your fellow vampire addict. They know you still love them despite their quirky tendency to occasionally wear a cape and have a tea party in a cemetery.

And to help you alleviate some stress when holiday shopping for your vampire addict, here’s a list of 10 fail-proof gift ideas that will make the vampire addict in your life love you so much, they’ll want to try biting your neck…

  1. A gift card to Barnes & Nobel or Amazon, so they can replenish their stock of vampire books!

  2. A gift card to HotTopic, so they can replenish their vampire costume wardrobe.

  3. I black leather moto jacket or a black leather trench coat.

  4. Hollywood-quality acrylic fangs – Not those cheap plastic Halloween ones!

  5. A box of faux blood or candy blood or a really great recipe for a blood-red cocktail.

  6. A black or red vintage Victorian china set to decorate their dining table.

  7. A set of silver chalices.

  8. A DVD/Blue-ray box set of their favorite vampire series.

  9. A poster of Buffy or Spike (because all true vampire addicts love Buffy and Spike).

  10. Autographed copies of Dark Heirloom and Dark Liaison which you can order via my online store for no extra cost.

Happy holidays!

Dark Liaison (An Ema Marx Novel 2)

Urban Fantasy

Being a Romani-Vampyre with an ancestor who wants you dead isn’t normal. Neither is this sequel.

Ema Marx wishes her life would go back to normal, but there’s nothing normal about being a Romani-Vampyre with an ancestor who wants you dead. Apollyon is back, wreaking havoc on the lives of everyone she cares about while plotting her demise.

Ema thought she would find a new best friend in her trainer, Bridget, until the exotic vampire vies for Jesu’s attention. Jesu can date who he wants, right? Ema has more important things to worry about, like honing her powers. When Apollyon’s thugs appear out of the shadows to attack her, Ema knows it’s time to take action. But everyone else has other plans in mind.

One thing is for certain, being under house arrest in the German vampyre king’s castle was not part of her plan to save the day.

 Urban Fantasy

She wasn’t bitten. She’s not undead. So how did Ema Marx become a vampire?

 “You’re a vampire” is so not what Ema Marx wants to hear when she wakes from a two-day coma in a cryptic yet exquisite castle in northern Finland. Unfortunately, it explains a lot. Like why she’s able to see in the dark and walk through solid objects. What she doesn’t understand is why the other vampires expect her to have all the answers. It’s their fault she turned into one of them…right?

Jalmari’s hatred for his old-man intensifies when he’s ordered to bring that troublesome girl to their castle. He has a clan to run, there’s no time for babysitting newborn vampires no matter how they were converted to their culture. But when a two-thousand-year-old premonition threatens to take the crown and his life, Jalmari sees no other choice than to take out the catalyst. Ema Marx. Fortunately for Ema, she could also be the clan’s only savior.

The race to figure out her vampiric origins is on. And maybe she’ll get the hang of the blood-drinking gig along the way…



 J.D. Brown knows that vampires exist because she’s dating one and no, he doesn’t sparkle. Unfortunately, he’s not immortal either (or maybe her standards are too low). A magnet for subcultures and weirdness, J.D. was that socially awkward girl with more fictional friends than real ones. As a child battling a hearing loss and a medical condition with no name, J.D. found comfort in books where strong women always saved the day and got the guy. An obsession with Charmed, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Heroes lead J.D. to believe that her mutated chromosome made her something more, not something less. Thus her stubborn flare to persevere was born. A lover of fine cuisine, coffee, and shoes, J.D. never understood why shoe stores don’t serve Starbucks and soufflé. She resides in Wisconsin were she writes urban fantasy—aka vampires for adults—and has political debates with her dogs. She loves to hear from fans and is active on
