Whiskey, Blood, and Magic
A rock singer’s life unravels
The resurfacing of old addictions becomes the least of rock singer Jake Reece’s problems when he finds himself demon bound to an amulet and chased by a succubus befitting a gothic fairy tale—or nightmare. She wants his body and magic to defeat this demon in a spurned angel’s game of retribution. She’s even sent a clan of Darkened rogues after him that wants the mystical piece worse than she. The dashing fop has an entourage of sexy stripper Casters led by Marci Stone on his side, but saving him isn’t the only problem.
A dangerous magic sex drug called “Bacchus” is running riot in Atlanta. Detective Fred Waters of the Fulton County Paranormal Division calls on Marci in the belief that the drug is connected to the murderous clan. Now Jake and sensational girl trio must quell a potential catastrophe while they seek out the succubus leading these marauders. Still, if they do trounce the succubus and her minions, can Jake face that a fallen angel has made him the Keeper of the amulet for all time?
This darkly sexual novel will take you through the night club and strip bar scene of Atlanta and into the rolling hills of rural Georgia. The main character is an outrageous foppish singer surrounded by dazzling strippers and a colorful cast of misfit regulars at the bar Medusa’s where he works. The nemesis Ariel Celique is a nefarious beauty who is both queen and prisoner of her gothic mansion fantasy world. The story flies in the face of traditional novels about the South, flaunting the dark side of Atlanta. While David Chylde does employ elements of Southern flare, this is no mere effort to be the Faulkner of urban fantasy.
Hi. I’m David Chylde. My debut novel Whiskey, Blood, and Magic will be the first in a series that will take rock singer Jake Reece from his life as a bartender to a huge star in the dark world of the Nephemera. He is surrounded by three beautiful girls led by Marci Stone who lead a double life by dancing in a strip club and then risking their lives as bounty hunters in magic. Much of my material is drawn from my experiences in Atlanta where I waited tables and worked in clubs. In fact, this book is like taking a tour of the night scene of Atlanta. The subject matter consists of succubi, sex magic, rock music, and drug usage, so get ready for a wild erotic ride that will be hilarious and breathtaking.
I listen to neo-classical shredder god heavy metal like Yngwie Malmsteen, but I also like My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, and most electronica. I’m a big horror fan, and I love creepypasta road stories on YouTube. Bram Stoker’s Dracula is my favorite classic horror novel, but I’ve read a ton of Anne Rice and Mick Farren vampire stuff. My favorite urban fantasy novel is Silk by Caitlin R. Keirnan.
