FILMMAKER AND AUTHOR ROMANE SIMON UNLEASHES HIS LITERARY SIDE IN “RED TO BLACK”

By Valerie Milano

Los Angeles, CA (The Hollywood Times) 9/19/17 – “I wanted to write something different and unique, which became this vampire love story. Vampires can be similar to human beings in so many ways in that they sacrifice a lot for blood including their own blood for love,” said author and noted filmmaker Romane Simon of his chilling book “Red to Black.”

Simon is at it again with his debut novel, “Red to Black,” (The Power of Love). As if it wasn’t enough to create the Lucky Strike Film Festival and write, direct and produce countless award-winning films, this book is hitting the presses in a big way!

This book is about an old family of vampires, Xavier Gains, Daniella Gains and Barry Styles. The story revolves around these intriguing characters and the humans they are attracted to while living in Los Angeles. Xavier falls in love with the beautiful Marisa Childs and kidnaps her away from her husband, Douglas Childs, and brainwashing her to join the fold. Through out all of this, Marisa would not allow Xavier to kill Douglas, as he is doing his best to bring his wife back from the clutches of this vampire fold. This story explores the depth of this magical world and how with the power of love, one will do anything for the one they love. Even shedding their own blood in the darkness for the vitality of eternal love and life.

There are powerful characters and a wonderfully compelling storyline, which was really romantic in a sense much to my surprise.  It was scary without being too gory, which is a challenge in this kind of genre. I hope Romane turns this book into a film or at least a series of young adult (YA) literature books.
