Hello and welcome to the Hump Day Hook. I have decided to share an excerpt from my current work in progress, a novel with a very vague title at the moment. In fact, the whole story is quite vague. For some strange reason my Muse has deserted me, but I am determined not to give up on this one! Here is a sample from the beginning of the novel, and the protagonist of this story is Dr Jennifer Worthington, The Vampire Hunter.
Her history professor, Dr Kate Morrigan, had tried to warn Jennifer. She had managed to accidentally disturb the young couple many times before their fateful first kiss. Of course, she failed in her attempts. Jennifer had pursued Matthew with a vigour that frightened her. She had never chased a boy before. Then again, she had never met a boy like Matthew. He was romantic, passionate, and he seemed to know a lot about the Tudor family that she was so fascinated by. Sometimes he spoke as though he knew them personally, telling stories of life at court as though they were memories. When Jennifer finally found out that he was a vampire, it all fell into place. He had known the Tudors. He was ancient. Matthew Ancory was a very old man in a very young body, and he had tried to turn Jennifer into a vampire to be with him. Fortunately for her, Dr Morrigan had intervened at the right time, armed with a crossbow and wooden stakes. The vampire had escaped, but Jennifer’s life changed forever.
