A Message from Carole Gill
I write stories of the paranormal, horror, and love. I'm the creator of Louis Darton, a strong vampire with a dark, tortured past. Come journey with me as I help Louis find love and fight his ultimate nemesis, the evil, demonic Eco.
Know what I want to do? I want to take gothic romance where it's never been! I want to shock and thrill you and leave you wanting more.
The battle between good vs. evil is central to my fiction and there is no fudging over the evil. Evil is evil. There can be love as well or even just the hope of love, but whatever there is, my fiction is never predictable. I don't think fiction should be.
If readers want darkest gothic horror with romantic elements, then look no further!

A Bit About the Sequel I Am Writing
I am writing the sequel to my very dark gothic romantic novel, The House on Blackstone Moor and I am enjoying doing it despite all the historical research I have to do.
Unholy Testament is the confession of a demon. It is the accounting of all the sins he has committed in his immortal existence.
He presents his journal to the woman he loves, who is you might say, a captive audience.
The chief protagonist of the book is Eco. The evil baddie who appears in the first book. Eco is mad, bad, dangerous to know and campy.
It has been challenging to present him in a way that the reader might actually understand what he's about. Why he is the way he is and how he got to be that way.
I am endeavoring to do this. It isn't easy, but it's fun too sometimes--this accounting of his sins and his mad existence.
For that part of the novel to be credible Eco would have to be engaged in all manner of sin. There would be things depicted that would possibly shock even Caligula. As a matter of fact Eco did shock Caligula!
There was this time when he was telling Caligula at Caligula's urging of a rather amazing weekend he had in Egypt with some Vampire cultists. Caligula, though no stick in the mud, was rather shocked.
What surprised the Emperor was not only Eco's ability to keep interested a half a dozen concubines at once but to also keep fascinated at least that number of Palace guards as well.
"You are the most amazing man...!" Caligula gushed.
Eco we all know is not mortal. But he did not correct Caligula. He did stifle a laugh when the Emperor went on to say: "Of course for myself--it is different, being a God as I am."
"I tell you what!" Eco suggested. "As a God you will be able to out do me with one hand tied behind your back! How does that sound?"
Caligula leaned forward to hear Eco's absolutely outrageous suggestions about some sort of sexual olympics he had in mind for the Senator's wives to participate in.
Caligula was enthused to say the least. "You shall show them all you can do, my friend. You shall have all of them! They would never dare to refuse me and to make it even more fun, we will have this performed in front of the entire Senate!"
Eco was delighted. Caligula was thrilled.
I hope you will be too!
Stay tuned for all sorts of surprises!
RELEASE DATE: THIS SUMMER!
