Jason Chan--Bliss and Grief

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?

My novel is called Bliss and Grief. Romance, fantasy, betrayal and forgiveness are the driving forces behind BLISS AND GRIEF.

Incubus Colton confesses his love to his human best-friend Daphne, knowing that it's forbidden for an incubus to fall in love.

He is immediately recalled to a nightmare world called Grief for punishment, where he is bound in servitude to a plant monster and forced to seduce dreaming girls to survive.

Colton must choose to stay in Grief forever or take a pill that makes him forget Daphne entirely.

As thoughts of the pain of neglect flood his mind, he impulsively takes the pill, and but then immediately regrets it when he relives blissful times with Daphne. Will he find a way to undo its effects before the police recapture him and take him to the torture chambers? Or is he destined to return home without love for the only girl he has ever loved?


Q: Why did you go indie?

Going indie means that the author can have a lot more control over the marketing of his novels.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?

Well, I love the clarity of Stephen King's writing, the language of Anita Shreve and the brevity and insight of Alice Munro.


  1. I read this and it made me think of a modern day version of the Arthurian Romances in which the knights set out on a quest to prove their devotion. Original and hauntingly beautiful.

  2. Sorry, I'm an idiot - I read "A Phantom Love Story" - this is still on my to-be-read. Just read the comments above in the light of Jason Chan's other book!
