David Chylde
David Chylde was in the sixth grade doing creative writing assignments when he realized his gift for writing. The teacher said he was writing papers far longer and with much greater enthusiasm than anyone else though many students had better grades. It was simply what he was meant to do. From there he started creating comics and reading horror writers like Stephen King, Peter Straub and Robert McCammon. He wanted to create books that came across as graphic novels—highly visual, bizarre, and action-packed.

He attended Dekalb Community College and then Georgia State, but he knew he was never meant for anything normal. He was entrenched in the nightclub\restaurant business and enjoyed long nights after work too much. He was twenty-four when he attempted to write a dark fantasy novel about a male stripper, but it didn’t get off the ground. Still, he had the right idea.

Ten years ago he came up with the Rock Star series. Whiskey, Blood, and Magic marks the beginning of Jake Reece’s struggle to make it in the rock world while dealing with dark personal issues and, most of all, his Calling to magic. Now he has big trouble—hunted for his talent, body, and unleashed power. Only three bounty hunter girls who dance in a strip club can help him now.

He’s writing the second novel in the series while holding down a waiter gig at Tin Lizzy’s in Lawrenceville, Ga. He might move back to the heart of Atlanta, but that remains to be seen.

Whiskey, Blood,
and Magic
  A rock singer’s life unravels
                                                                                                                          The resurfacing of old addictions becomes the least of rock singer Jake Reece’s problems when he finds himself demon bound to an amulet and chased by a succubus befitting a gothic fairy tale—or nightmare. She wants his body and magic to defeat this demon in a spurned angel’s game of retribution. She’s even sent a clan of Darkened rogues after him that wants the mystical piece worse than she. The dashing fop has an entourage of sexy stripper Casters led by Marci Stone on his side, but saving him isn’t the only problem.

A dangerous magic sex drug called “Bacchus” is running riot in Atlanta.  Detective Fred Waters of the Fulton County Paranormal Division calls on Marci in the belief that the drug is connected to the murderous clan. Now Jake and sensational girl trio must quell a potential catastrophe while they seek out the succubus leading these marauders. Still, if they do trounce the succubus and her minions, can Jake face that a fallen angel has made him the Keeper of the amulet for all time?

This darkly sexual novel will take you through the night club and strip bar scene of Atlanta and into the rolling hills of rural Georgia. The main character is an outrageous foppish singer surrounded by dazzling strippers and a colorful cast of misfit regulars at the bar Medusa’s where he works. The nemesis Ariel Celique is a nefarious beauty who is both queen and prisoner of her gothic mansion fantasy world. The story flies in the face of traditional novels about the South, flaunting the dark side of Atlanta. While David Chylde does employ elements of Southern flare, this is no mere effort to be the Faulkner of urban fantasy.
