Bookshop is offering free shipping today and tomorrow (June 21-22).

Forget Prime Day– support local bookstores instead…

What happens when a predator loves its prey?

Centuries-old Mara is dying a slow death when she meets Lee, a young man whose life has never belonged to him. Thrown together, they’re forced to fight those who would destroy them and survive a slew of enemies they never expected, even as Mara falls into a downward spiral of delusion and obsession. Will she make a devil’s deal to save both their souls? With pasts like theirs, can they ever have a future?

Buying through Bookshop is the perfect way to support independent bookstores, as well as authors ♥

Happy shopping,

Aspasía S. Bissas

Quote of the Day

Quote of the Day by Neil Gaiman: Fiction gives us empathy: it puts us inside the minds of other people, gives us the gifts of seeing the world through their eyes. Fiction is a lie that tells us true things, over and over. Via Aspasia S. Bissas, aspasiasbissas.com

Cover Story

Cover Story: Love Lies Bleeding, blog post by Aspasia S. Bissas, aspasiasbissas.com (dark fantasy, photography, Paris, France, art)

Some of you might recognize the above image from the cover of Love Lies Bleeding:

The picture is of the Medici Fountain in the Luxembourg Gardens (Jardin du Luxembourg) in Paris. The fountain was built in 1630, eventually falling into disrepair before being restored in 1811. The figures are the mythical lovers Acis, a mortal, and the nereid Galatia. Above them is the giant Polyphemus:

He’s on the back cover of Love Lies Bleeding. I thought the statues suited the book’s characters, particularly how Acis is staring at Galatia’s neck (echoing vampire Mara and mortal Lee), while a menacing figure looms over them. What do you think– were these photos a good choice? Let me know in the comments.
