Elizabeth Donald Joins the Seventh Star Press Family With Compendium of Nocturnal Urges Novels!

Seventh Star Press is proud to announce Elizabeth Donald as the latest addition to our author family with a new compendium containing her highly-acclaimed Nocturnal Urges novels! Featuring brand new cover art by A. Christopher Drown, the release is set for late March and will bring Elizabeth’s popular series back into eBook and print editions for fans worldwide!

“We are thrilled to have Elizabeth join the Seventh Star Press family as we move into a new and exciting phase at the press,” commented Seventh Star Press representative Stephen Zimmer.  “She is one of the most well-loved authors on the convention circuit, by both readers and peers alike.  Her exceptional talents as a writer are well-established.  We couldn’t be more excited to have this great series and world-class author find a home with us.”

The forthcoming release will contain the novels Nocturnal Urges, A More Perfect Union, and Abaddon, the original three installments in the Nocturnal Urges series. The series features an alternate version of present-day Memphis in which vampires walk among us, but are not treated as our equals. They work the night shift, the jobs no one else wants, and they’re not too happy about it. Meanwhile, humans take advantage of the pleasures vampires can provide, but call them friends? Lovers? The gap between human and vampire stretches wide as death rises in the streets of Memphis.

Synopsis of the three novels included in this compendium:

Nocturnal Urges: It’s the most popular club in the Memphis nightlife. Part legal bordello, part feeding ground for the city’s vampires, Nocturnal Urges offers pleasure and pain in one sweet kiss. It’s the ultimate addiction: both drug and sex at once. For the vampires, it’s the only way to survive in a world where the creatures of the night are a dark underclass, ignored until the humans need another fix.

Into this world comes Isabel Nelson, a young woman seeking only a night’s pleasure. But after Isabel’s lover takes her to try the bite, she cannot stop thinking about Ryan, the dark vampire with whom she shared her lifeblood – and who is now suspected of murder. Isabel falls into a world where passion and love are miles apart, where life and unlike have little meaning… and someone is hunting in the shadows.

A More Perfect Union: Samantha Crews has lived a long time in the shadows of Memphis, working at Nocturnal Urges and hiding from the vampires that darken her past.

Det. Anne Freitas is stuck with a new partner, a young woman with a chip on her shoulder. Now they’re assigned to investigate a series of threats against congressional candidate Robert Carton, for whom Samantha volunteers.

But Samantha is falling for Danny Carton, the candidate’s son – an idealist who wants to make life better for humans and vampires alike. But there’s a lot Danny doesn’t know about Samantha.

He doesn’t know she’s a vampire.
He doesn’t know she works at Nocturnal Urges.
He doesn’t know his own father is one of her clients.
And he doesn’t know what’s stalking her…

Abaddon: Abbadon. The Lady Zorathenne requests the honor of your presence at a celebration. A toast, if you will. Followed by a feast.

Beneath the dark Memphis streets, something is stirring. Filled with ancient fury. Seeking revenge on the ones who live above. A revenge born in fire.

The fires are ranging in Memphis and no one is safe. Ryan and Samantha must descend into darkness beyond their imagining to find answers to the mysteries of the past, as Detectives Freitas and Parker seek the truth about the present.

And the return of an old foe could make the future a dark place indeed… save for the flames of Abaddon.

About Elizbeth Donald:

Elizabeth Donald is a writer fond of things that go chomp in the night.

A writer since her Mother’s Day essay won a newspaper contest in the 1980s, Elizabeth’s Nocturnal Urges vampire series first hit bookstores in 2004-7. It won the Darrell Award twice and was a finalist for the Prism Award and other honors. Next came the Blackfire zombie series, which began with The Cold Ones in 2008. It sold out its print run in 48 hours, and its sequel Blackfire soon followed from Sam’s Dot Publishing.

Elizabeth’s work includes a number of novels, novellas, short stories and essays that have appeared in a variety of publications. One story, “Wonderland,” won the Darrell Award in 2006 and was included in her short-story collection, Setting Suns. In 2013, Elizabeth launched her photography site, selling nature and art photography online and featured in various art shows and events. Her 2013 Kickstarter project brought in nearly four times its goal, funding a national book tour and her newest novella, Gethsemane.

Upcoming projects include the relaunch of the Nocturnal Urges series with Seventh Star Press, to be released in March 2015. Her new short story collection, Moonlight Sonata, will be released in 2015 from New Babel Books. Other projects on their way include Banshee’s Run, a science fiction adventure novel.

By day, Elizabeth is a newspaper reporter in the St. Louis region. She is the president of the St. Louis Society of Professional Journalists and a member of SPJ’s national ethics commission, part of the team that rewrote the ethics code adopted by hundreds of news organizations worldwide in 2014. She is also a freelance editor working with small presses and beginning writers, and writes CultureGeek, a pop-culture review column. She is the founder of the Literary Underworld, an author cooperative helping small-press writers and independent presses promote and sell their work throughout the country.

Elizabeth is married to author Jim D. Gillentine, has a teenage son who is wholly unimpressed with her work, and they all live in Illinois in a haunted house. In her spare time, she… has no spare time.

Here’s what some reviewers have had to say about the Nocturnal Urges series…

“Gripping and raw with intense emotion and great characters… This vampire world and its characters are created so realistically you almost expect to hear about them on the evening news, and not be able to sleep afterwards.” — Coffee Time Romance

“ An old-fashioned whodunit with the violence we’ve come to expect in any vampire novel; a love affair against the odds; and a vampire with a tortured past… definitely a keeper!” — Vampire Book Club

“One can never fully prepare for the onslaught of a Donald novel. I should have known that… The tension increases throughout, making it impossible to set aside this book until reaching the last page.” — Author Kit Tunstall

“Not a romance by any means… a story of loss and revenge. A story of love and a hate that has lasted for a hundred years and that will not be denied. It is a story of fire. The fire of the human and the vampire hearts… A storytelling ability to rival that of Stephen King.” — Enchanting Reviews

“The unexpected way this story evolves is magnificent. If you, like me, are enamored with vampires, then this is the book for you.” — Coffee Time Romance

“Elizabeth Donald once again takes readers on a remarkable ride through the shadowy world of vampires, while exploring some of the darker sides of humanity… This is a beautifully-written book with an enormous amount of depth and detail that really bring Ms. Donald’s vampires to life.” — JERR magazine

“Funny, scary, passionate and quirky… worth the price of admission!” — Ecataromance.com

“Enthralling and dark with danger, suspense and sex, Nocturnal Urges is a must-read for vampire fans.” — Romance Reviews Today

Hunt for the Fallen by Peter Welmerink, Transport Book Two
Shadow Out of the Sky, Book One of the Transitional Delusions Series
Book Synopsis

Peter Welmerink’s Hunt for the Fallen: Captain Jacob Billet
Journal Entry – Sunday April 5, 2026

It’s raining, it’s pouring, the undead are roaring…

Amassed at the UCRA east end enclosure, the dead strain the fence line while soldiers keep watchful eyes, the survivors on the opposite side of the rising river about to lose their minds.

It’s a crazy time: nonstop precipitation; everyone’s up in arms; paranoid city council members with an asshat City Treasurer. Water, water everywhere. Zees dropping into the churning drink. Troops afraid of being stitched up and thrown back into the fray as Zombie Troopers. Tank commanders getting itchy to head out on their own after drug-laden shamblers. Reganshire insurgents trying to extract our west side civvies for some unknown reason, possibly pushing the city into taking heavy-handed action against them.

Then there’s some black-haired dead dude staring at me through the fence, grinning like he’s off his meds.

And I thought Lettner was a headache.

All this sh*t might give me a heart attack.

Hunt for the Fallen is Transport Book Two

Brick Marlin’s Shadow Out of the Sky: A scarecrow crucified on a wooden cross made from a pair of two-by-fours sits in a field of corn, placed there to frighten away birds and protect the crops. Under its straw hat large buttons pose as its eyes, placed there by child’s fingers, view something sinister in the grave sky, appearing in front of the full moon.

Twisting, it forms into a sleek black mass, peering down upon the town of Woodbury. Four demons called The Reckoning has pulled this shadow, this urban legend from the past, out of an unmarked grave to bring terror across the planet, shoving it toward an apocalypse.

Now it cuts through the air, as if it were opening wounds in flesh, peering down at the first house that it hovers over…

About Brick Marlin: Brick Marlin has been writing since he was a child. From an early age he was exposed to older horror movies. The great ones making their mark in history. He also tackled reading the likes of Stephen King, Clive Barker, Ray Bradbury, Kurt Vonnegut, Dean Koontz, Charles Dickens, Harper Lee, H.G. Wells, etc. Thus, he decided to engage himself and write horror, dark fantasy and dark sci-fi, scaring readers such as his parents, his friends, neighbors, and even leaving a few school teachers scratching their heads wondering if the boy should be committed or not with his gruesome tales of terror. Short story ideas continued to visit. A book idea or two sometimes stopped by for a sit. In 2007 he decided to take a more professional approach with his work. Hence, as a member of the Horror Writers Association, already having nine books published by small presses – this you hold in your hand, constant reader, makes his tenth – nearly thirty short stories published, adding to the few anthologies and collaborations with other authors, Brick Marlin trudges onward, hoping to achieve more creations, wallowing in the brain pans of his characters, giving them the choice whether to twist the knob and enter through the Red Door, or enter through the Blue Door where a group of servo monkey badgers are consuming packages of cinnamon-flavored Pop Rock Candy with a Kung Fu Punch of caffeine.
