"...Pulls you in quickly...gorgeous prose...
a gothic novel that has beautiful descriptions
and fascinating characters. Trevor Blackmoore
is a new kind of hero" - Literary Pride

"Symphony for the Devil is a novel of the mysterious,
the supernatural, and the wonderous, both magickal
and mundane. It is a tale of lasting legacy and a
cursed family. James does a masterful job of
keeping the threads together with complex
story weaving... a book descended from the
same lineage that gave us such classics as
Bram Stoker's Dracula and Mary Shelley's
Frankenstein." - Manhattan Book Review

"If you aren't afraid to explore the deeper and
darker sides of love, fear, and humanity, and
you fancy the supernatural, then this book
should already be in your hands! ...Bloodlines
uses immortality to explore identity, healing,
and the value in experiencing both the good
and evil in life." - Edge Media Network

"...James shares the path to his own enlightened
truths." - Take Five Magazine

"James' Following The Kaehees drew me in.
This coming of age gay narrative is filled with
sensitivity and warmth."
L.C. Hayden, best selling author
of Who's Susan? and What Others Know

About Marcus

“Some writers have great ideas, but fail with the delivery. That is not the case for our author. He has clearly developed his craft and whittled it to perfection”-Wesley Thomas, bestselling author of Nightmare Fuel

E-Festival of Words award winner Marcus James is the author of six novels, including The Blackmoore Legacy series. He has contributed to a dozen anthologies from Alyson Books, has been a featured writer for the Seattle Gay News, is the host of Brews & Books at Ravenna Brewing Co. and is host of Queerly Spoken. When not writing he’s cooking, drinking champagne like water, and watching horror films with his husband and their Staffordshire terrier, Nikita. He is 32 years old and lives in Seattle.

Armed with their unrelenting curiosity to learn the truth. Kelly and Michael set off on a road trip that leads them to more than just the facts about the mystery of Joan and Gordon Kaehee and their disappearance, it leads them to each other and themselves.

2017 E-Festival of Words award winner for Best Literary Fiction

Blackmoore is a heart-wrenching, adventurous supernatural suspense in the tradition of television’s Dark Shadows and Anne Rice’s Lives of the Mayfair Witches. This novel introduces Marcus James and the bewitching Blackmoores to the world.

A story of love, friendship, religious bigotry, and the courage to be yourself; In God’s Eyes is based on the author’s own experience, and explores the fragile stability of adolescence, and the horrors of religious conversion therapy. It’s a lyrical and theological coming of age story exposing the very real human horrors of religious dogma.

A story about high school bullying and isolation changes into a story about identity as Talbot Mathias explores his way around the vampire world. Bloodlines then shifts a second time as it evolves seamlessly into an epic fantasy novel that delves deep into the rich nature and history of vampires, resulting in a war between pureblood vampires and those who are created.

Set in a culture of wealth and witches, the second book in Marcus James’s Blackmoore Legacy series – this Gothic gay romantic adventure – is a whirlwind of paranormal blended with the finer things of life. Symphony for the Devil is a compelling, plot-driven, and structurally-sound story. The characters are interesting and intelligent and the reader might forget they are reading fiction.

What Readers Are Saying

“A nerve-tingling, nail-biting, superb masterpiece… A superb bit of story telling from a true master of suspense, love, evil, and witchcraft.”

“Every word on every page is a work of art and Marcus James is the master painter.”

“Spellbinding and enchanting. Marcus James is the present day Goth Dickens. The depth of narrative, and the painterly way the author pulls together detail creates a surprisingly plausible netherworld set in the midst of gritty urban Seattle.”

“These ‘characters’ could just as easily be real people that we know and love. He pours life and vulnerability and history into ever person that graces the story. He gives us everything we could possibly want in a novel, not just in terms of the characters he crafts, but the tales he tells. He really cares about what the reader wants.”

“Blackmoore is a beautiful, passionately written gothic novel that was nearly impossible to put down. The story manages to be suspenseful and thrilling, while also being touching and coming-of-age.”

“Five stars!! what a wonderful book! I was on the edge of my seat from beginning to end! Marcus has a very magical way with words that drags you into the magical world of the Blackmoores and wanting more! I can’t wait to see what happens next! READ THIS BOOK NOW!!!”

“Such an amazing read! Blackmoore will keep you up at night! Not only is it impossible to put down, but the dynamic characters and riveting mystery will haunt your dreams!”

“Gripping and Addictive”

“Marcus James succeeds at being something that has all but died out in books of late: fearless!”
