My screenplay vampire thriller EMPUSA and mystery-romance novel LIVING ON VELVET on eBay

New copy of the romantic horror-science fiction fantasy screenplay novel, EMPUSA, by Crystal Jamison. A terrifying tale of love and bloodlust. Scary, classy and sometimes funny. Oversize (8″ x 10″) paperback.

Chilling, surreal story of Vampire Queen Empusa and her consort Count Brenton Nybrook. Beautiful Empusa rules over all – she’s sweet, vicious, deceptive and alluring, feared even more than her vampire king. She also has a ruthless and sinister mermaid sister, Neptia. Count Nybrook, not a comic book superhero type, has few redeeming qualities – although he has a soft heart and is kind to his mythical flying “pets.” Charming, handsome and mysterious, Nybrook is deadly with weapons – fangs or otherwise. Living anywhere, magic powers give them command over time and space. Boundary-pushing, depicting a brutal, true-to-their natures vampire couple.

“I am a writer foremost, and an artisan painter and jeweller living in Roseneath, Ontario, Canada. Formerly a journalist from and born in Toronto, I have lived in beautiful Northumberland County for over 25 years. “My artist’s statement: If you are an artisan, day is night and night is day. You forget to eat. You sometimes force yourself to make time for your family and friends. Your blank canvas or page before you demands the closest of relationships and can be a jealous lover. The paint on your brush or fingers, the keyboard, is the medicine that heals you, and heals others through your visions when they look at your completed works. You look in the mirror and you can only see an artist at work always. If not painting or writing, your subconscious is absorbing your environment and your mindset for your next brush to canvas outing or the next word to emerge. If we sleep, our arts will wake us up and draw us magnetically to the creative pleasures and discoveries of the day. We are alive because we are creating out of ourselves and putting ourselves on the canvas or the printed page. We perceive our surroundings and exhale magic ….”
