As noted in my dedication to blood donors, PULSE is a book inspired by my personal experience with extreme blood loss, as every book I write comes from personal experience or revelations. Although I have other series with vampires – Wicked Woods, The Stoker Sisters, and Harold the Kung Fu Kid, this series is different in that it’s about the romanticism of blood to humans and to vampires. I wouldn’t say it’s more romantic, but it does have a lot of kissing. What’s similar to my other series, though, is that this series is pure fun and fantasy. That’s because vampires are fun, dangerous, sexy, romantic, and everything you imagine them to be. If you do decide to get serious and analytical about PULSE, there are discussion questions available for clubs and groups too. Thank you and enjoy!
The PULSE Series, starting with PULSE, is the Award-Winning Finalist in two categories – “Fiction: Romance” and “Fiction: Multicultural” of the 2011 International Book Awards, where Pulse’s author Kailin Gow won first place overall in Fiction Horror.
Start reading an excerpt of PULSE here:
She ran like an animal. Her clothes were wet, sopping, clinging to her thighs and to her chest, hollow and transparent around the curve of her shoulders. Her hair shook out droplets of rain; her cheeks were flushed and she was breathless. He could see her heartbeat throbbing at the side of her throat, see it in the rhythmic panting, hear it from across the street, pounding in his ears, intermingled with the thunder bolting from the sky. He could feel it – it felt like an earthquake to him, shaking his ribs, his shoulders, his legs. It had been so long since he had seen a heartbeat like hers – since he had felt a heartbeat at all.
The skies had opened up – as they so often did in North California – without any warning, without any hesitation. It was as if the smooth blue glass ceiling of the world had shattered all at once, letting the primordial oceans pound down upon the pavement. He could see her consternation, her irritation – she wanted nothing but to get out of the rain, to dry herself off, to curl up into something warm and dry.
But Jaegar loved the rain. He loved the energy – the pulse of life beating down upon the earth.
