Guest Author: Jeannie Holmes (Guest Post & Giveaway)

I’m delighted to welcome urban fantasy writer, Jeannie Holmes here today to Dark Faerie Tales to talk a bit about Blood Law, which is her debut novel.  Blood Law was recently released on July 6, 2010, and is also part of my Debut Urban Fantasy Reading Challenge.  You can also read an excerpt here.

One lucky commenter has a chance to win a copy of Blood Law.  As always, details are listed at the end of the post.

Cops and Vampires

by Jeannie Holmes

First, I’d like to thank Dark Faerie Tales for inviting me to hang out here today. So, I’m a new author. Blood Law is not only my first book but is the first in a new series featuring vampire cops working in a small Mississippi town.

Yes, you read that correctly: vampire cops.

When people ask me why I chose to write about vampires, it’s a fairly easy answer. I’ve had a life-long fascination with the supernatural, especially vampires, and it seemed only natural that I should write about the creatures that have sparked my imagination since childhood. On the other hand, when I’m asked why I chose to make my vampire protagonist, Alexandra Sabian, an Enforcer with the Federal Bureau of Preternatural Investigation (a cop) the answer isn’t as cut and dried.

Law enforcement has been an interest of mine for years. I first became interested in learning more about the inner workings of law enforcement during my previous career incarnation when I worked in hospitals and doctors’ offices. I would often have to call the local police to the hospital if a patient reported any form of assault, shooting, stabbing, domestic violence, or if the hospital staff suspected any form of abuse. They would take statements, collect evidence, and ask questions. They took what I saw as disjointed and disorganized information and built a case out of it. One such case that happened in southwestern Mississippi was the inspiration behind some of the events in Blood Law.

I never met Jane Doe, but she did influence the mystery that is at the core of Blood Law. In the book, my protagonist, Alexandra Sabian, is a vampire and Enforcer with the Federal Bureau of Preternatural Investigation who is assigned to police the vampire population in small town Jefferson, Mississippi. Everything is going great until someone starts killing the vampires and leaving their headless and staked bodies around town. Naturally, mayhem ensues throughout town. Jane wasn’t a vampire nor was she staked or decapitated. However, she was murdered and her nude body dumped near a wooded area at an interstate rest area a few miles north of my hometown in Mississippi.

If my memory serves me correctly, Jane was discovered by a motorist who was walking his dog at a rest stop along Interstate 55 in Copiah County, Mississippi. This was in the late 1980s or very early 1990s, but I can’t remember the exact year or the full details of how Jane was found or even killed, although I believe she was strangled.

For weeks, the entire state talked of nothing but Jane. Sketches of her appeared on the news, ran in all the papers, and southwestern Mississippi became a hotbed for reporters and amateur sleuths trying to discover Jane’s true identity. But as the weeks turned into months and eventually years, no new leads developed and Jane became a cold case. The reporters moved on to bigger, hotter stories. The amateur sleuths returned to their day jobs. Jane, however, remained Jane Doe, buried in a cemetery with a simple headstone bearing her new name and the date she was found.

As far as I know, Jane has never been identified, her killer has never been captured, and my efforts to find out more about the case haven’t been easy. It’s almost as if all the media attention she was given years ago has vanished. Jane has truly been forgotten.

I think that’s why I remember her so well and why I used her story to inspire portions of Blood Law. The tragedy of her murder shouldn’t go unanswered. Her family, whomever and wherever they may be, shouldn’t have to wonder what happened to Jane.

I hold no delusions that my posting will somehow jumpstart a cold case investigation. My hope is that by sharing Jane’s story, others will remember her as well because no one should be completely forgotten.

    I enjoy urban fantasy because of the melding of the paranormal world into our world. I think of books like the beginning of the Anita Blake series – it feels like our world with just the paranormal added. Same for the dark hunter series (though those I guess are considered more paranormal romance). I guess truthfully I love the addition of other creatures into our world.

    I love paranormal/UF because of the kick-ass heroines (and heroes) of all types, whether they be human, super human, vampire, werewolf, demon, or any other creature that an author can come up with. I enjoy being taken away to a world different than my own, with the fantastic imaginings of things that just might be true if we only knew.

    The thing that appeals to me about fantasy/paranormal fiction is that it is outside of the normal ho-hum everyday type things. It allows for anything to be possible and takes you someplace you normally can’t go any other way. It provides a real escape.

    urban fantasy/paranormal fiction is appealing because there aren’t many rules that authors have to go by, so their writing can be as creative as they want. Which, makes books more creative, interesting, and fun.

    Hi Jeannie!!! That is such a great background story, and I love the fact that you are keeping her memory alive.

    My love of UF comes from the fact that I’ve always been a fan of the extraordinary…ever since I watched Spiderman on Saturday morning. I always wanted to see what it would be like to have such special powers. That’s the draw with UF…you have these special beings trying to live a normal life.

    I love fantasy/paranormal fiction because it transports you to a new place where anything is possible. The stories aren’t restricted by boring real-life realities. After reading so many amazing and imaginative fantasy/paranormal books, anything remotely normal bores me. In these books, you get to enter a world of impossible creatures and things you can only imagine, and it’s wonderful!

    The paranormal genre allows my imagination to soar and takes me away from the ordinary.

    What I love about the paranormal/urban fantasy genre has to be first and foremost the fantastical element of vampires, weres or using magic/etc. Most of the time I am guaranteed more than one genre. Sure, the main genre or focus are the powers/fantasy element, but usually mystery, suspense, romance and action are combined within the book. And the end result, mostly, produces a nicely balanced story.

    + 1 I love urban fantasy/paranormal mainly for vampires. I also have read fiction since i was in the 2nd grade, and was reading Harry Potter by 3rd grade. Then I started getting into the magics and the vampires and witches. Nowadays its all I read. :)

    Reading books about Fantasy/ paranormal fiction is fun to read to open your mind to other worlds and be able to take your mind off the real world for a moment and just enjoy the fun and fantasy of love and fighting and good vs evil and good winning

    I like the variety of it. There are so many different creatures to write about, and authors even seem to write their own rules regarding them (ex. vampires – sparkly vs. not sparkly, blood hungry vs. vegetarian).
