Guest Post by Laura DeLuca
I was so excited to see that this year’s party theme was going to be about breaking stereotypes. My newest novel, Phantom, recently released from Pagan Writers Press, is about much the same thing. The story is a modern day version of the “Phantom of the Opera”.
In my book, a high school is performing the musical and a Gothic Pagan, who goes by Lord Justyn, is cast in the role of the Phantom. Much like the character he portrays, Justyn finds himself an outcast among his average, everyday classmates, especially when strange things start to happen on and off the stage.
The original Phantom was hated and feared because of the scars on his face, and Justyn finds himself in the same position because of the clothes he wears. To quote Justyn himself,
“The Phantom is supposed to teach you that it isn’t the way someone looks that makes him a monster, but the way he’s treated that can turn him into one.”
This is one witch who is definitely dark and sexy. But you’ll have to read the book to find out whether or not he followed in the original Phantom’s footsteps and got a little bloody. You can order Phantom on Amazon or direct from Pagan Writers Press.
