Author Spotlight: G.D. Ogan- Immortal Relations, Love and War





Blurb:
 
The enemy vampires have been eradicated, so it appears our guardian vampires may look forward to a peaceful existence. Eviana is planning on having more children; she has had a son, now she wants a daughter. Magdalena, believing she is incapable of having children, still would like to be married. However, much as in human life,, peace and family are placed in harms' way by unforeseen events.

"Immortal Relations, Love and War" amps up the action of the first book to a fever pitch. The greedy leaders of Communist China plan to capture the oil, gold and mineral rich fields of Siberia by decapitation the Russian Federations' Government as a prelude to invasion. Minions of rich OPEC Sheiks seek to stem the flow of Russian Oil so OPEC can raise prices to destroy the economies of the West. They plan to use a "dirty bomb" to destroy the main pumping station and have the radiation make the oil fields unusable. Added to those threats, The radiation containment cap at Chernobyl is failing; the release of poisonous radiation could happen at any time and worse still, some scientists predict the damaged nuclear reactor at Fukushima, Japan could collapse and cause a potential Extinction Level Event! Who, or what, can be called upon to save civilization and mankind and what impact with the vampire covens experience? Could potentially catastrophic events turn out to offer unforeseen opportunities? 
On the back of the inside title page, Create Space printed the incorrect copyright date for my second novel "Immortal Relations, Love and War" (they used the 2011 copyright date for the first novel, "Immortal Relations"). Inside the back cover the page shows 30 November 2012 which is when I sent them my final draft. In reality, my second in the series has only been out a couple of months (I call the release date January 21 of 2013 which is when I received my first copies of the finalized second novel).

Why this book stands out from others in the genre:

This series shows that not all vampires are evil, lurking in the shadows to fall upon unsuspecting, innocent, maidens in order to rip out their throats and drain them of their blood. My "guardian vampires," remembering their own humanity and the fact that they were attacked and changed by evil vampires, watch for them to stop their attack and to destroy them whenever they try to attack innocent humans. The blood they feel they need to exist is taken not from the living but they own funeral homes where, in accordance with funerary laws, blood from the deceased must be replaced with preservatives. Once the blood is drained, rather than being flushed down the sink, it is mixed with a special anti-coagulant and sent to the "Residency" where the guardians can use it. I've had several readers ask me why no other authors have thought of this method of obtaining blood before. All I can say is most authors' vampires are too busy ripping the throats out of people, they write mostly about the evil type. There are messages of hope and redemption in the story, no matter how terrible the events of their lives and how far they have been led astray. There is "explicit togetherness" between the mated vampires, so the book contains a warning that it is meant for mature adults. It contains strategic and tactical information of a military nature; however, it is well explained so even someone with no background will understand the action.

 
Backstory:
 
The first few pages of the second book contains enough "backstory" information from the first book so that the reader isn't lost; however, it is suggested that greater appreciation for the characters and story will result if the reader does read the first book. If the first book is full of action, the action in this book explodes off the pages. If you have a friend who thinks a romance story can't be exciting, let him (or her) read this one! If they don't get caught up in the action, check them for a toe-tag, because they have died somewhere along the line. LOL
