Elizabeth has a gift. Every night, allowing her mind to travel into dark and mysterious places, she sees a world of vampires and creatures of darkness; a world she knows is real and feels compelled to paint.
But her gift--her talent--is going to be put to the ultimate test when she dreams of Xander Stryker.
Driven by a need to depict her new subject in all the horror and splendor that she felt in her dream, she resorts to the unimaginable. Her need will pull her into the depraved depths of the very supernatural world that she'd dreamt of for so long.
Is her mind prepared for the darkness of the unseen world, and is her body capable of withstanding her own unnatural motivations to create the perfect portrait...
A portrait of the legacy of the Crimson Shadow.

Author's bio***

Born in Massachusetts in 1986, Nathan grew up in Andover where his

affinity for story-telling flourished due to a love of books and
movies as well as an overactive imagination. At the age of 13, Nathan
and his mother moved to upstate New York to be closer to their family.

After surviving public school, where he spent most of his days locked
away in the AV room watching old 80s movies on Laserdisc and planning
out his next video project, Nathan began a shaky college career. A
love of inventing and telling stories was motivation enough to pursue
an education in English, and, as luck would have it, a series of
phenomenal professors were presented to get him pointed in the right
direction. It was in his first years of college that Nathan began to
actively pursue a writing career, starting his first literary journey
with a piece that would become Crimson Shadow (due for release summer
of 2012 by Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly Publishing).
Like any good story, a chaotic turn of events brought Nathan from the
very brink of insanity and loneliness to the warm, comforting embrace
of Megan, his best friend, lover, kindred spirit, and--more often than
not--personal handler. It was with Megan at his side that Nathan was
able to continue his writing (sometimes solely motivated by the young
lady's threats of dismemberment if he tried to stop). With Megan's
help, Nathan was able to see Death Metal, his fourth manuscript,
through the publication process.

Nearly ten years later, Nathan continues to invent stories and put
them into a literary sequence that he hopes will be somehow
decipherable by other readers. As a lover of all things creative, he
works in both novels, novellas, short stories, as well as comic book
scripts (just don't ask him to draw something if you don't like stick

Come be a stalker of the literary genius! 


  1. Graphic Novels? Interesting. There was a time when I looked for help, thinking that I would do my first book as a series of Graphic Novels. I would still consider it. Nathan is a very inspirational writer and I'm glad I came to visit. I would say good luck with future projects but I don't he is gonna need it. We'll catch ya later Nathan, and what the hell, Good Luck.

    1. Bill - Comics are an increasingly popular medium in the storytelling process. For many decades the comic book has been a source of immense entertainment and breathtaking tales and artwork woven seamlessly into a single product. I was nervous in the late 90s that the way of comics was dying, but they made a full 180 and came back with a furious vengeance that has busted down some of the constricting walls that had been holding it back prior.
      If you still feel the drive to do comics, I highly encourage it. Though I only write the scripts, the process of working with an illustrator to bring a mutual vision to life has got to be one of the most exhilarating moment for any writer. While I can't go into excessive detail, I CAN tell you that there is going to be an increase in the availability and opportunity to get a comic project off the ground (either as a script-writer or illustrator) and you're closer to that opportunity right now than you think (stay tuned for future news if interested).
      Also, despite that tangent I just went off with (comics will do that to a geek), I want to express my sincerest and most humble thanks for your kind words. Whether luck is needed, the extension of yours is a most heart-warming and thoughtful gesture.

      Write on, brother!
