I am admittedly a bit squeamish at the thought of getting blood drawn. For starters, I can’t watch. I need to look away while they do what they do because the notion of seeing the blood coming out is just … well, it’s too much.
There’s a reason I’m not a nurse or otherwise in the medical profession.
There are a few such stomach-turning scenes in Blood Draw, the latest novel by my friend and author Melissa Luznicky Garrett, that made me want to clamp my eyes shut. Being her editor for Blood Draw, closing my eyes through the rest of the novel wasn’t exactly an option. Then again, there were scenes that had me on the edge of my seat.
Blood Draw is currently available on Amazon for $2.99 and is the sequel to Blood Type (which I did not edit, but which is FREE until November 2).
About Blood Type: Popular girl Blake Ehlert has it all: a prime spot on the cheerleading squad, a jock boyfriend who’s strong and sensitive, and the winning vote for Homecoming Queen two years in a row. But when she strikes up a conversation with loner John Kelly, her entire world starts to crumble.
John Kelly is a vampire—what’s known to his kind as a Compeller. It’s his job to recruit human Donors with a particular blood type.
And Blake is his next target.
About Blood Draw: After seventeen-year-old Blake Ehlert is brutally attacked and infected with vampire venom, she must choose between imminent death and eternal life. Unable to turn away from true love, Blake ultimately embraces the reality to which she’s been doomed. But life as a teenage vampire proves to be a lot more difficult than even she bargained for.
Blake struggles with the relentless warring between her lingering human emotions and cravings for blood. To make matters worse, Blake finds herself caught on the cusp of revolt, led by the Chief of Police and town’s most powerful vampire. In order to protect her human friends and family, as well as the vampires she’s come to love, Blake must take a stand against those sworn to protect their very existence.
