Blood Magic

BLOOD MAGIC by Aspasia S. Bissas

On the run from both vampires and hunters, Mara and Lee are forced to confront the bleak reality of their future together. But an unexpected turn of events offers Mara the chance to shift things in her favor–at a cost. Will she walk away or will she embrace the magic?

Blood Magic is a standalone short story that takes place within the novel Love Lies Bleeding by Aspasia S. Bissas. You don’t need to read Love Lies Bleeding to enjoy Blood Magic (but it doesn’t hurt).

“By the end of page 1, the clever wit and sense of humour her readers are so familiar with, grips you.”      –Callum Beesley,

Available as a FREE download at Smashwords, iBooksBarnes & Noble, Indigo, Kobo, and other online booksellers.

Love Lies Bleeding

Love Lies Bleeding cover jpeg

A novel about delusion, obsession, and blood.

“Aspasía S. Bissas has achieved writing afresh about an angle of vampirism that sometimes is claimed to be over-written and over-read…. This is not just another book for the pile, or another “fresh layer of frost” for a snowman—this is abominably good.”    –Callum Beesley,

“[I]t is the rare gem that makes me utterly devour a tome disregarding all over stimuli. Love Lies Bleeding is such a gem.” –Andy Boylan, Taliesin Meets the Vampires

Available in paperback and ebook at Amazon, iBooksBarnes and Noble, Booktopia, Kobo, Indigo, and other booksellers, including indie shops (see below).
