Welcome To The Family
by Caroline F. Levy
Published: April 29th 2013
Publisher: Moon Rose Publishing
“Do you believe in things that go bump in the night?”
At only a few hours old, Angela is left on the steps of St Paul’s church. Alone in the world, the only link she has to her past is a pink blanket bearing an emblem with two crossed swords and a snake.
A troubled childhood spent in orphanages leads to Angela attempting to rebuild her shattered life as an adult. Meeting the priest who found her eighteen years previously, she gets a job and a boyfriend, and settles into her new life.
Until she meets Jack.
Drawn to her new boss, she throws herself into work, feeling an unusual bond with people she hasn’t known very long.
Angela becomes embroiled in this new life, feeling a change within herself. A change which isn’t altogether human. Within this change she finds a terrifying secret…a secret which involves her past, her present, and definitely her future…

This is an exciting time for me. The release of Welcome to the Family is quite a big deal. It’s my first Novel to be published, so it’s all extra shiny and exciting. Although to be honest I think I will be getting this excited with every book I publish. :)
I have been pondering on what to do this blog post about, as you have been kind enough to leave it as a guest post, so I have free reign to run amuck all over your blog lol... I jest
I have decided to make this post about one of the characters from the book, I don’t know about you, but I often wonder about the little things that you don’t always get to know via the book. Like, is Gideon as bad as we think? Or has he changed since losing Jesaray.
Vampire age 255.
Very successful trader, over the years what, and whom he traded has changed.
It is rumoured that he runs Junta, the break-away faction who see humans as purely cattle. But this has never been proven so he still has free reign within the community although he is not welcome at Topline Towers.
A connoisseur of the fine arts and a lover of classical music, he was a dream come true to the younger and impressionable Jesaray, Sweeping her off of her feet and tricking her into having a child with him.
He has two half breed children only a few years older than Angela but he realised he needed a full vampire to carry on his work.
Both Erick and Minuet suffered through their childhood as they are only half vampires, the members of Junta often shunned them. It was worse for Erick, it’s the females that are sort after in the vampire community as they are rarely born and put on a pedestal when they are.
Gideon was over the moon when he found out he was to have a daughter and heir.
He was incensed when Jesaray left with no word if his daughter was born or not and it has killed him over the years. He has found a human girl Angela who might be here and dispatched Brent a were-animal servant of his to watch over her.
Werewolf servant tied to Gideon. Tricked into thinking he would be his protector seventy years ago.
He has a job in the Topline protection agency and was also a regular at Aunties cafe where he would watch Angela. He has a crush on her but would never peruse it as he would have to face Gideon and he knows if she is his daughter, he wouldn’t be alive for very long after.
Gideon has aspirations of one day sitting on the council for what purposes no-one knows.
As for, is he a good guy? he lets the human population think he is, at the moment he is funding a, make the next generation aware of classical music foundation. As to what he is getting out of it. A couple of the most talented girls have disappeared in the last year...
Unfortunately you will have to wait a while, to discover if he is turning over a new leaf...
Meanwhile I asked a couple of personal questions.
Boxers or briefs, is one of the questions, I just can’t resist. lol Gideon however was not amused, and flat out refused to tell me.
Chocolate was a welcome subject, he’s partial to the dark stuff. He leans in closely and whispers “matches my personality” so not going there!!
He loves classical music, Beethoven - Moonlight Sonata is his favourite
But that is as much personal information as I could pry from him.
I hope you enjoyed getting to know a snippet more information about Gideon. He will be back with us in, Protecting the family. Maybe he will show his true colours, or at least share a little more.
Many thanks for letting us come see you Krystal, wishing you and your readers, a fabulous day. :)
About the Author
Caroline F. Levy
My first memories of any book would have been my mother reading The Enormous Turnip. It must have driven her mad, as it was always our first choice when asked what we should read tonight.
I grew up with the classics; Little Women, The Railway Children, but it would have been The House That Died and Bluebeard that I remember wanting to read.
I can remember writing a verse for the school song, and being chosen as a winner for what was then 3rd year juniors. I stopped reading so much in my late teens to my mid twenties. Life seemed to always be too busy for that pile of books I so wanted to read. It was when I went into hospital to have my daughter, that I had time to read again--and thankfully I haven’t stopped since.
However, it wasn’t until my late twenties that I realised I wanted to write. I have spent a few years trying to complete an online creative writer’s course; without much success, but it led me to what I am writing now. So never give up if you really want to write!
I am very influenced by Fantasy fiction / Horror, most of the books I read are in this genre. I have many Authors I like to follow; Anne Rice was very influential in the beginning. I also discovered Laurel K Hamilton and many, many more. I could go on about different Authors I like to read. However, I will say that this year I have also discovered there are literally, well, probably thousands of very talented Indie Authors out there. And a very welcoming and friendly bunch they are too, but I digress--yes, I get very excited about the subject of books!
I have finished my first novel called Welcome To The Family, which will be published April 29th 2013. I also have other novels in the pipeline, Nikki’s Revenge and Protecting The Family, due out later in the year.
