99 cents on offer Oct 7-13. There Were No Helplines for Child Abuse Victims in Victorian Times!

On offer for 99 cents. This is the first novel in The Blackstone Vampires Series. It contains both human and supernatural evil. Rose Baines' father abuses his own daughter. It is alluded to, but it drives him to kill himself and his family. I'm not telling you anything you would not read in the first paragraph or two. 
This is the first novel I wrote. I'm proud of it because of all the acclamation it received: 

'eBook Festival of Words 2014 Best Horror: The House on Blackstone Moor and Best Villain: Eco'

'Top 10 Books - 2013 - The House on Blackstone Moor/Aoife Marie Sheridan - ALL THINGS FANTASY/Publisher, Ultimate Fantasy Books'

'The figure of the Gothic child was there. Stoker's horror was there. Along with the romance! At the heart of her writing one stumbles upon a genuine search for that darkness we lost with the loss of Stoker."'
DR. MARGARITA GEORGIEVA ~ Gothic Readings in The Dark

'I for one found this gloriously gothic, refreshingly brutal, honestly horrific and a great read.'
~Taliesin Meets the Vampires

'92 Horror authors you need to read right now, Carole Gill - The Blackstone Vampires Series.'~Charlotte Books Examiner.

So what's it about? Darkest horror & romance combined in this tale of incest, murder, madness and obsession. Both human and supernatural evil are examined in this epic vampire tale. Yet, despite the darkness, there is the hope of love but it comes at a terrible price.

The story takes place in 19th Century England. Young Rose Baines knows what it is to live with madness and his abuse.

Victorian England knows nothing of support groups for abused children. In fact when Rose comes home and discovers her entire family has been murdered by her father, who is himself a suicide, she is in shock. No, that word and what it meant were not known at that time. Madness was, Rose is considered mad. She is incarcerated in two different madhouses. In the first she comes under the care of Dr. Bannion who seems to good to be true. Is he? And if so, why? Why, indeed?

The novel's themes are: vampirism, madness, obsession and devil worship. Both supernatural and human evil are examined. 

Go and knock at the door to The House on Blackstone Moor. I  am certain they will let you in.
