Please welcome Guy (G.D.) Ogan today, telling us about his series, Immortal Relations!
When Gary Logan finds an old photograph of his father in Prague with a woman’s handwriting on the back, he flies there to investigate where his father worked, only to meet and fall in love with a beautiful lady he believes to be a vampire. In love with her, he is initiated into a coven of guardian vampires, beginning an extraordinary journey of epic proportions.
Exciting, erotic, and full of heart-stopping action, Ogan’s debut novel turns human vampire lore on its head, creating a symbiotic relationship between the two species that deepens emotional connections to astonishing effect. But a coven of evil vampires bent on destroying the guardian vampires and feeding on the humans at will have other plans. Adam however assists humans in almost wiping out the evil coven, beginning the ever-increasing relationship between vampires and humans. Gary and Adam then save Great Britain from nuclear theft and attack; when their nemesis make one last-ditch effort in Russia to bring all of the peaceful societies down, Gary, Adam and the coven must save the human species before their enemy’s plans come to fruition.
Probing the grey areas inherent in sexuality, family, and legend, Ogan weaves an amazing tale that examines the very nature of existence. An unrelenting thrill-ride of passion and action, Immortal Relations will leave you breathlessly awaiting the series’ second and third installments, Immortal Relations, Love and War, and Immortal Relations Coming Out.
Let’s get to know Gary…
How do you communicate with your writer? Mostly during his sleeping or waking dreams, that seems to be when I am best able to communicate with my scribe (the “author”).
Do you like the genre you find yourself in? Both I and my scribe felt that the stories I had him write were Paranormal-Action novels…we were both surprised when an editor said they were Paranormal-Romance novels.
Do each of the stories end the way you wanted? Yes, for the most part. Each of the three novels in the series is “stand alone” and each ends on a positive note.
Is there anything that you worry about? What I and the Guardian Vampires fight against is the victory of evil over good…if America continues down the road it is currently on, evil will destroy the world.
When you sleep, what do you wear? Since I am a vampire, I don’t “sleep” but do rest when I listen to music and am usually dressed in slacks and a T-shirt.
What do you see as your strongest attribute? My military background and knowledge of the tools needed to stave off the evil forces increasing daily in the world.
Does anything in the stories cause embarrassment? Not much embarrasses me or my mates (who turned me into a vampire); however my scribe is somewhat embarrassed by the “explicit togetherness” shared by those in the stories…I hate to say this about him, but he is a bit of a prude when it comes to sex but I continue to try and enlighten him!
Is there a major difference you see in relationships between human males and females vs. the same relationship in vampires? Human men and women are often in turmoil about love, family and finances, seeming to worry needlessly. Vampires, on the other hand, are free of such fears. As invulnerable immortals we have no such worries and our guardian vampires are dedicated to fighting evil, protecting innocent humans (sometimes from themselves). Another difference is we share our sexual lives are shared openly without shame.
What do you like most about where you now reside? I greatly enjoy the humans we now live amongst in Southern Canada; they have proven most gracious and accepting of our vampire group. When we were attacked by the Marxist government in American they rallied around to allow us to remain in Canada rather than deport us or allow the Americans to continue their aggression against us.
What’s your favorite animal? I so love dogs and chose my scribe partly because he loves animals. He dedicated our first book to a no-kill shelter for Bully-Bread dogs in Houston, Texas and there are materials in the stories about the dogs we have saved…he loves cats too.

*The first book has some erotic content. For those who prefer less “explicit togetherness” I suggest stating with book #2 as it has a conversation between major characters that covers the important points of the first book. It still has “togetherness” just a bit less “explicit.”
