BELLINGHAM, Wash., Nov. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Author Shay Roberts is launching his debut novel, Heartblaze: Secret Souls, on Nov. 30th, 2015.
The Pacific Northwest writer has emerged from a secluded forest with a novel for everyone who misses Edward and Bella. His new book, Heartblaze, introduces Julian and Emma, a struggling couple bound together by a tragic romance in their past lives. The author invites you to join their perilous journey and immerse yourself in a world of complicated vampires, deadly werewolves, and enduring love.
Heartblaze was written for readers of paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and young adult. It's the story of Emma Rue, a troubled college freshman who undergoes hypnotic regression and discovers a remarkable secret that catapults her into a Gothic adventure in search of her past love, an extraordinary vampire named Julian St. Fleur. Along the way, Emma encounters magnificent mansions, vindictive ghosts, and powerful werewolves. She can only survive by using a mysterious power given to her long before she was born.
"I teach medieval martial arts and a lot of people know me more as a martial artist than a writer," said Shay Roberts, the author. "They ask why I wrote a book with such a strong romantic theme. The answer is simple. I've been in love and it's made me feel things more vivid and intense than anything else I've experienced, including martial arts. Love is something people care a LOT about so it belongs in a book. It belongs in every book. And including it doesn't stop me from writing good fight scenes."
"I've been asked if this book is the next Twilight. Stephenie Meyer impacted so many lives with her work. Those books were a phenomenon, the right books at the right time in our culture. There will never be another Twilight. Full stop. But if those readers find something to like in Heartblaze, I would be thrilled and honored."
Heartblaze will be available worldwide on Nov. 30th, 2015 at $3.99 for the ebook and $11.99 for the paperback.
Pre-orders of the book are now available at http://shayroberts.com/heartblaze1. Heartblaze will be released worldwide on Nov. 30th, 2015 at $3.99 for the ebook and $11.99 for the paperback.
