Sophie Galen is an advice columnist whose work leaves her neck-deep in other people’s problems. Thanks to her compassion, her gut instinct, and her magnetic charm, Sophie really knows how to attract little black clouds.

Marek Thurzo is no little black cloud; he's a maelstrom. Marek is Demivampire, a race with the potential to evolve into vampire. A warrior who's taken his share of spiritual damage, he hovers dangerously close to destruction.

He seeks salvation. She's driven to save him. But what if he can't be saved?

Sympathy for his plight becomes true empathy as Sophie’s hidden nature is revealed. Marek suspects she may be one of the Sophia, oracle and redemption of the damned Demivampire. She alone can turn back the evolutionary clock.

All she needs is the courage to face her fears. Can she save him from Falling?

About Me

Author Portrait
Ash Krafton is a writer of all things spec fic. She believes spectacular endings make the best beginnings...

Why not? One billion black holes can't be wrong.

Her first novel BLEEDING HEARTS: Book One of the Demimonde (Pink Narcissus Press) is available March 15, 2012. The manuscript earned finalist distinction in several Romance Writers of America 2011 competitions and has been awarded several other awards.

In addition to novel-length fiction, Ash enjoys writing poetry and short prose, some of which earned big ups by CNW/FFWA in 2008 and 2011 as well as the Abilene Writers Guild in 2010. Ms. Krafton made her publishing debut in Spring 2009 when her poetry appeared in Poe Little Thing; her work has since appeared in several other journals including Niteblade, Ghostlight Magazine, The Absent Willow Review, and Silver Blade. One of her poems was selected as a Pushcart prize nominee. She's a Published Member of Pennwriters and is co-editor of her area's Wordpress blog. She also contributes to Query Tracker’s blog at http://querytracket.blogspot.com.

Ash resides with her family in a rural town in the heart of the Pennsylvania anthracite coal region.

She'll never leave, either, because coal is just another example of a spectacular ending waiting for a brilliant beginning. (It’s kinda fitting.) And because, like a black hole, once you’re in...

You can never get out.
