Guest Blogger Chris Marie Green Talks About Her Latest Release, A DROP OF RED
A new Underground, a new adventure for Dawn Madison and the vampire hunting team!
Last time, Dawn and her friends brought down the Hollywood community of vampires, but now, in book four of the Vampire Babylon series, there’s a new threat, and it’s in London.
I have to say that this is some of the most fun and interesting research I’ve ever done for a book, because I actually took a trip to London in order to choreograph scenes, brainstorm the story, and record many details that I put to good use in the pages of A DROP OF RED (as well as books five and six, THE PATH OF RAZORS [8/09] and DEEP IN THE WOODS [TBA]). Here are a few highlights that you’ll find on March 3, when A DROP OF RED hits the shelves…
Bleak, gothic, gorgeous. Perfect place for some vamps to be lurking, yes?
Here’s a haunted house in St. Albans, the city where I decided to locate the new home of the vampires. Things like the architectural quirks you see here really allow a place to come alive.
Haunted House in St. Albans
Crossbones Graveyard in Southwark, across from the new headquarters for the vampire hunting team. I knew I had to use the building across the street because of its proximity to this cemetery, which boasts cards, ribbons, and other mementos on the gate because people often go there to remember the people (and prostitutes) buried in this unconsecrated ground.
