As far as anyone has known, famous author E.T. Johns has been shrouded in mystery. Countless attempts to uncover their identity have been made as they publish book after book of the dynamic vampire drama romance series, Tears of Blood. Teens and adults alike rush to get their hands on the latest book set in the supernatural world E.T. Johns weaves to follow the protagonist, dark-headed vampire Embry Penrose, as she realizes what it’s like to live and love as a vampire amidst her rivals, werewolves and hunters, as well as other powerful vampires, witches, and even the occasional human. Longtime fans hold out hope for the identity of Embry’s infamous Sire to be revealed in the upcoming release. Tears of Blood has remained popular for years, holding New York Times Bestseller awards for each installation. Despite this, not much is known of the author who keeps a very private life but sometimes leaves hints in the books as to their identity. No one has cracked that mystery. Until now. The Clifton Telegraph brings you the name of E.T. Johns after so many years in hiding. Drum roll please…
And that’s not all. She’s in Clifton, and she has been for months now, telling our interviewers that she found inspiration in this small town in the middle of nowhere. She cites that it made her stop and write her newest installation of Tears of Blood right here. In addition, she’s set up a game for all of Clifton to participate in the hopes of ramping up expectations for the release of her new book, The Rose Amongst the Wilted. A book signing will be held, but that’s not even the start of the fun Ms. Carlisle has planned for us. She notes that we may look forward to both DarkCon, a gaming convention to be held in the Clifton Hotel on August 24th, and The Vampire Ball, an event on August 29th ((2 PM SLT)) for fans to dress as vampires and to promote the release of E.T. John’s latest.
But wait! That’s not where it ends.
She asks us to use our imaginations, inspired by the Tears of Blood series, to LARP (live action role-play) our own scenarios or ones directly from the book. Become your very own vampire, victim, hunter, werewolf, even witch, and act in the streets, engaged in fights or soapy romances, as if we live in this very supernatural world of Tears of Blood! It only gets more juicy (or bloody in the fun of it all). Fans from all around will join us, so don’t be shy, go all out. Dress in custom-made outfits or as the characters themselves. Perhaps you choose the sexy, mysterious werewolf that seems to be intertwined with her fate, Axel Knight, or maybe the hunter she plays a sexy game of cat and mouse with, Kace Halifax. Then, there is the devastatingly beautiful but wicked witch, Raven Cromwel, and the villainous, pompous, and rich head vampire Sir Cadmus Pierce as he tries to marry her off to his handsome son and prominent Vampire Prince, Lincoln Pierce.
Of course, those are only a select few of the fan favorites, not to mention all of the recurring victims and occasional allies, including the Roller Babes, the Cotton Candy California Girls, Lion’s Den Biker Gang, and the Italian Mafia, all sprinkled with supernaturals and humans alike. Who will you be? Will you create a new character? Ms. Carlisle is also offering an app for those that participate and create the most LARP as well as interesting storylines, characters, and outfits to which will be judged for points by herself and her PR team. The person who is the most unique will be chosen and revealed in the most dramatic of ways at the Vampire Ball alongside E.T. Johns herself. There are other prizes involved, including a personal mention in the book, the chance to meet with the bestselling author herself, and a mystery prize not to be revealed until the Ball itself. The app is now available in the App Store and is titled Tears of Blood.
We encourage you all to download the app and create profiles, either private or public, to display what you wish for Haley and her team to judge. Join the swarming fans of Tears of Blood and do justice to the newest, The Rose Amongst the Wilted, and pick up your copy coming soon! The Telegraph expects to see Clifton buzzing with LARP in the passing weeks. Share with your friends and family so all can join in the fanging fun! Who knows? Perhaps Ms. Carlisle herself will be watching or even join you herself. Be on the lookout!
Until the Vampire Ball, my readers.
