::Characters:: Amilda L’Agrande


Amilda 01Amilda L’Agrande is Angel’s adoptive sister and best friend.  They’re both character in my novel “Angel Gabriel – Blood Bound”.
When the story starts off, Amilda is nearing her 18th birthday and she’s already a Level B sorceress (learn more about Magic), and she’s also engaged to Luigi Monteva.
Amilda and Luigi are the only survivors of a massacre that took place when several families tried relocating from an unsafe refuge. That night, Amilda and Luigi, who were only three years old at the time, lost everyone they’d ever known.

Amilda 02Adopted by Jane Thompson, Amidla grew up in Kirovhorad’s refuge, and there she learned magic from her adoptive mother. All that time she kept close the only picture she has of her family: her biological mother and her eleven siblings, amongst which is Davet, the brother she was closest to.

Amilda 03

All throughout the story, Amilda will be a friend and companion for Angel, in their tuff journey. Young, impetuous and innocent, Amilda will make mistakes, and yet she’ll be one of the pillar stones for this story.

Curious? Is there anything els you’d like to know about Amilda? What about Luigi or Davet?
Please leave your comments.


And before finishing this post, I have to apologize. The book is not yet ready for release: I got a new job and afterwards I just haven’t got the energy to sit down and concentrate on finishing “Angel Gabriel – Blood Bound”. But I promise I’ll get my life organized and I’ll get back to it very soon. I don’t want to delay the release much longer.
Thank you all for your patience. Please come back for more news soon.

New look


You might’ve noticed the change in template and the new header image. I wanted to unify the overall aspect of this blog and my portuguese one, so I chose something simple but adaptable.


I thought it would also be fun to let you know that the woman in the picture is me and the characters are Viridis, my muse (the green one), Caeruleum (the blue one) and Purpurissum (the red one), my two muse-helpers; they help clean up the mess my muse makes, sometimes. 🙂
In my portuguese blog, I’ve used them as characters in some opinion posts I made, and probably will use them again, here and there.

So, what do you think of the new look (for the blog)?
I want to keep improving it, and will do some more changes soon, but in the meantime I’d like to hear your thoughts.

And, if you’re curious, visit my portuguese blog to see a different header.

::Characters:: Gabriel

Gabriel Espinoza

Gabriel Espinoza

Gabriel Espinoza was born in Freixo de Espada à Cinta (Portugal), in January 13th of 1983.
His mother was Portuguese and his father was Spanish, so he lived between his hometown in Portugal, and Donostia – San Sebastián (Spain). After getting a degree in Ancient Languages and History, he worked in Spain all year long. At 26, he was engaged to a childhood friend, Sílvia, whom he visited as often as he could, in Portugal.

In early 2010, Gabriel’s life was forever changed, when he was turned into a Sekhmet*, becoming one of the first and most powerful vampires known to men.

Gabriel Espinoza

In the first pages of “Angel Gabriel – Blood Bound”, Gabriel e 191 years-old, has black untrimmed hair, red eyes, tanned skin and is famed as a merciless killer.
A lone-wolf by nature, Gabriel likes to take on missions, keeping himself busy, and away from certain vampires whose company he truly despises.

Find out more about Gabriel in my upcoming novel: “Angel Gabriel – Blood Bound”,  which will be available soon.

*I’ll make a post where I’ll let you know all about the different types of vampires in my novel.

Nanozine 8

Although not related to my writing, this has everything to do with my upcoming novel, “Angel Gabriel – Blood Bound“.
In fanzine Nanozine 8, on pages 39 and 40, I published two illustrations, depicting three characters from “Angel Gabriel – Blood Bound“: Cornivar, Aaralyn and Omniua.

nanozine 8

Beware that this issue of Nanozine is dedicated to erotica, and therefore my illustrations contain nudity, but are not explicit. Please feel free to download it and skip to pages 39 and 40 to see both illustrations (or if you read portuguese, please read the whole issue it’s worth it!).

Cornivar and Aaralyn

Although the fanzine is only available in portuguese, the illustrations stand on their own and the only text present is a synopsis for my upcoming novel (the same you can read here).


I really like how the colours came out and hope you enjoy both illustrations.
