Reviews | First 3 Chapters | Characters

Blood To Blood is the first in a series of YA novels centered around new-born Shimshana Angelica Brown, aka Angel, a 16 year-old rising pop star raised in the upscale Boston neighborhood of Beacon Hill. The first chapter of Blood To Blood can be read here.

Summary: Enter the world of Bostonian teen Angelica Brown: budding pop star and descendant of an immortal race of sun-loving blood drinkers known as Shimshana (the vampire prototype).

Defying her parents' traditions of higher education (and secrecy), Angel plans to ditch high school to be a singer. She's got an amazing voice, but she's also maturing into a full-grown Shimshana complete with fearsome power and insatiable bloodlust. What's worse, her soaring vocals are now capable of destroying everything, and everyone, within earshot; including her girl group, their mysterious producer and Angel's hunky new blood donor. To top it off, she must prove her worthiness to live by passing the tests in her Mahá-the ancient, mandatory coming-out-party for new-born immortals. Will Angel survive her Mahá and quickly learn to control her new abilities? Or will her killer instincts bring her promising career, and her life, to an end?

As the daughter of ancient immortals, Angel is faced with jaw-dropping challenges, while forced to make complex moral choices that will forever shape the person she is becoming as she pursues her dream. In an interview with Australian book blog Novels on the Run, Author Ife Oshun, who hails from a family of mediums and metaphysicians, says, "The book chronicles the coming-of-age of a girl, a simple girl who wants to share the music in her heart with the world and who is born to a legacy of blood and glory. It was inspired by real events."

Ife Oshun worked for over a decade as a music journalist. She also independently produced and wrote for television and theater and served as a Writers Guild of America intern on the Star Trek Voyager television series. She lives in her hometown of Boston and can be found on her website

Welcome to KindleBoards, and congratulations on the book! :)

This is just a friendly reminder that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum. Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so post this note in every thread. :) )

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.
