Dawn McCullough-White-- Cameo the Assassin
Dawn McCullough-White writes mainly dark fantasy and horror. Her novels tend to favor the use of anti-authority anti-heroes as the main characters. Product description:
Cameo the Assassin is a dark fantasy set in the pseudo 18th century. In a world of corrupt royals, charming libertines and the supernatural, sometimes the anti-hero is the only hero you can find. With a foiled revolution dividing the land, the royal family enlist the aid of assassins to keep things in order. The townsfolk entertain themselves regaling in stories of the undead said to walk the graveyards at night. . . and of Cameo the killer with corpse-like eyes. Scarred and jaded, Cameo is one of the most formidable assassins in the employ of the Association. Moving from one mission to the next, she meets two dashing highwaymen who unwittingly throw in with the dangerous and otherworldly Cameo. But that's where the story really begins...
Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
There's a strong female protagonist/anti-hero, who possesses a certain, otherworldliness. The novel is set in a dark, gritty world where very few truly good characters exist, although she happens to befriend one. The book is very character driven and includes vampires, highwaymen and witty banter. The format is clean and it's been professionally edited.
Q: Why did you go indie?
I really hate the “machine” that traditional publishing has become. I don’t want someone to determine whether or not I should be heard and I don’t want someone to tell me what to write. I want to have the freedom of my own creativity that all artists yearn for.
Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
I actually don't read within my own genre.
