NOTES FROM CAROLINA...
This wasn't intended as a series. It began because I wanted to write my own vampire, and I could see Nicolaides in my head. Although labeled dark fantasy in part, the stories are in contemporary settings, and the characters have lives similar to what yours might be should you be gay and hooked up with a vampire.
When I ended Alex and Dante's story in Naples, it wasn't finished: Giacomo was in the wind. When I finished off Giacomo in New Orleans, I believed my characters still had adventures ahead, and that Malcolm needed his own love story. So I sent them off to fabulous, historic Venice.
Now I suspect the series is complete. But, if it continues to sell well, maybe, just maybe, it is not.
Have a great summer reading!
