Genoa City, WI, August 06, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Jennifer D. Brown, known as J.D. Brown in the literary world, released her debut urban fantasy novel titled “Dark Heirloom,” to the world just a few short months ago.
Now fans of hit vampire series have a whole new reason to celebrate the famous fanged characters. Brown’s “Dark Heirloom” presents a stunning twist to the redundant vampire folklore of modern media.
J.D. Brown began writing fiction in 2008 and two years later signed a contract with MuseItUp Publishing, where she became a full-time author at just 26 years old. “Dark Heirloom” is the first of a planned six-book series that follows the main character – 23 year old Ema Marx – as she transforms into a vampire against her will, and finds herself the object of desire between three very different men with equally different motives.
Critics and readers alike describe Brown’s work as a unique blend of history, science and mythology; one that has allowed the author to craft fully-fleshed characters and a solid plot. “Dark Heirloom” has already been nominated for the 2012 Global awards and the 2013 EPIC awards, two prestigious literary contests that judge new releases based on content and craftsmanship.
When asked what her secret to success is, Ms. Brown responded “the story doesn’t end after the girl becomes a vampire; instead it begins there. Readers today love paranormal characters and they really respond to that inside glimpse of what being a powerful immortal might be like. I think I hit the target by omitting all the puny humans.”
J.D. Brown grew up in the Chicago area and graduated from the International Academy of Design and Technology with a Bachelor degree in Fine Arts. She currently lives in Wisconsin with her two Pomeranians and writes a monthly “how-to” column for PDMI Freelance Publishing, in addition to writing her Ema Marx series for MuseItUp Publishing. Readers can download the first ten chapters of “Dark Heirloom” free of charge from the author’s website (www.authorjdbrown.com).
