Award-winning author Jeff Mann releases his new book, Insatiable, in time for Halloween.
Book Release Date: October 22, 2017
Mountaintop removal is a contentious environmental, economic, and social issue tearing at the heart of Appalachia. What happens when corrupt coal-company owners go head-to-head with an ancient vampire? Insatiable weaves a story filled with danger, vindication, and victory as readers fly through the night with the protagonists, Derek and his boyfriend, Matt. Unique among vampire novels, Insatiable evokes humor, dread, anger, satisfaction, and the erotic as the vampire pursues his blood feud.
Scotsman Derek Maclaine has fallen in love with his adopted West Virginia home and its burly native son, Matt Taylor. But a local mining company’s recent efforts to destroy the land spell an end to all that Matt holds dear. Derek happens to be an immortal, a creature of the night, a vampire who does not know satiety. After many years without equal, Derek believes stopping a corporation of weak men will be easy. But Alpha Coal employs more than thugs: they are literally demonic. Derek must work together with a host of supernatural entities—werewolves and witches included—to preserve Appalachia from environmental ruin.
