Solstice: A Vampire TaleSolstice Chronicles #1By Bryan W. DullPublished: January 18th, 2013In Gavin Moxley's world, there is no thin line between right and wrong. In a person crusade to help sever a line of disease carried by a clan of vampires; Gavin has no choice but to be ruthless. The Vampires are purposely infecting the human population...waiting for humans to actively pass it on to each other. Gavin takes no chances and executes them one by one. Not strong or powerful, finding humans before they turn into full vampires is ideal and Gavin's best bet.Yes, this is Gavin's life......And nothing ever changes it until a young half breed vampire with special abilities, Solstice, attaches and makes herself a fixture in his life when she asks for his help and protection and when a reluctant Gavin agrees he joins a dangerous game of cat and mouse. There is no safe place and the pair are constantly watching their backs. Torn between his hate and his love for Solstice Gavin is thrown into a moral dilemma that only he can figure out but two things are clear...His faith and Humanity are being tested and the past is not always forgotten.
And now, a guest post from the author himself, Bryan W. Dull!
There is a difference between my characters and I. I am not Gavin Moxley. I am not any of the characters in my stories and having said that I should point out that I create fiction not reality. I will not lie and say nobody and personal situations do not inspire me to write the stories that I do. The fact is that I am under the impression that after my first book, “Solstice”, people seem to put off by me as a person, especially family. I am not sure if it’s because of the content, the nature, or just the dialogue in the book but I find it frustrating that after the book had come out my contact with friends and family has declined drastically. Some people tell me that it is just jealousy and perhaps that they don’t agree with or understand why I am not living the usual lifestyle that most want in life. That may be true, but I am not vain enough to say that.
I was told at one point before I started the book that writing was a waste of time and that there was no money in it. That person is no longer on my radar anymore because I chose to surround myself with people that support me and what I am trying to do with my life. People may not like what I do and that’s okay because if you are writing and you are not pissing someone off then you probably aren’t doing something right. I am not going to apologize for doing what I and others think I am great at.
In the long run, it may turn out to be nothing. At least I put my name out there into the world and my work will always be around for others to enjoy in my lifetime, and maybe my child’s lifetime as well and while people choose to stick with what is considered “normal”, I am not that person and if you are so against writing, books, or the arts in general, I at least had the guts to try to make a name for myself in some way…so my question for those who oppose the idea of what I do is… “What the hell have you done lately that is so great?”Bryan W.
