Anna’s first novel, first released on January 23, 2012, came about because of her being unable to find vampire novels that 1. wasn’t a romance and 2. where the vampire wasn’t looking to be “saved” from their immortal, bloodsucking condition.
Deciding that she couldn’t be the only person seeking such reading material, she sat down and wrote Siofra (shee-fruh), which tells the tale of the vampire Siofra O’Se, turned by accident in mid-1600’s Ireland.
From the back cover:
“In 1600’s Ireland, young Siofra is torn from her poor family to pay off a debt. She then finds herself working as a servant for a succession of nobles.
When she is attacked by a monster in the night and is accidentally turned, Siofra suddenly discovers she has to learn to how to be a vampire on her own, even though she has no idea what she has become.
For Siofra, life was a series of losses, and she grew hard while she was alive. As a vampire, this makes her comfortable in her own skin and she’s not squeamish about what she has to do to survive.
Looking for a vampire who isn’t squeamish or full of self-hatred? Siofra is for you!
“Siofra” is the first book in “The Sumaire Web” series of novels.
“This installment of The Sumaire Web series is an intriguing and freshly original work by Ms. Anna Rose.” ~ Gaston Sanders“
