THE INTERNET — In what can only be described as a takeover of Dracula-like proportions, Gabriella di Luca and three of the surviving Van Helsing family members have made their ebook premiere. On Saturday, their novel, Prescription for Delirium debuted on Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.
Reviewer Robert Zimmerman had this to say: “I’m intrigued to know where it will go from here. All I know is that there’s danger in store. It’s hiding around every corner for Gabriella and her companions.”
Jessica Fortunato also added: “They may be a family of Supernatural hunting bad-assess, but they don’t always trust one another. I liked that dynamic and found it added a layer of understanding to every action.”
The situation itself has been deemed by supernatural entities as “grave” and “uncertain”. Very few details have been reported by the cosmic entities-that-be, but what they have disclosed is that ninety years ago, Gabriella di Luca promised to protect the family of her dying lover. She failed to keep that promise. She was too far away to stop the devil that murdered the eldest Van Helsing son. Years later, Gabby learns the devil has resurfaced. She arrives in Hampton, TX, determined to stop the devil before it can lay a bloody hand on the remaining three brothers.
However, madness is spreading through Hampton. She suspects the devil is using this madness to test a drug which has a side effect of demonic possession. Gabby rushes to end the source of the madness only to fall victim to it. For a woman cursed with eternal life, dying is no threat. However, Gabby must stop the devil’s plot or risk losing her most precious possession: her mind.
The devil could not be reached for comment.
The only person willing to speak at length about the situation is series author, Noree Cosper. She reportedly loves writing about magic in the modern world. While growing up in Texas she constantly searched for mystical elements in the mundane. She buried her nose in both fiction and books about Wicca, Religion, and Mythology. Everyday became an adventure as she joined a group of role-players, acting out her fantasies of vampires, demons, and monsters living in the world.
She embraced her nerdom wholeheartedly.
Noree grew, but never left her love for fantasy and horror. Her dreams pushed her and her hand itched to write the visions she saw. So, with her fingers on the keys, she did what her heart had been telling her to do since childhood. She wrote.
Noree can be found stalking people on Twitter and Facebook. Officials have disclosed she also has a website for news on her works and tidbits of information She has also been reported to like rambling about things magical and supernatural on her blog Trip the Eclipse. While nobody has divulged the whereabouts of this eclipse and how one can avoid tripping on it, victims have only praised the experience.

Noree will also be in our upcoming Nocturnal Embers anthology. Stay tuned for a few treats I have in store for that this week.
