IRVINE, CA – 2/14/2017 — Robert Tomoguchi began his love for writing at the age of thirteen with a focus on poetry. By age 16 he transitioned into fiction and has not looked back.
His latest highly anticipated novel, The Scribbled Victims tells the story of Yelena Solodnikova, a modern day vampire living in Los Angeles who is plagued with the guilt of her murderous existence. She meets Orly Bialek, a twelve-year-old girl who has the special ability to see evil deeds committed by the people she sketches in scribbles. The two bond as mother and daughter and Yelena feeds guiltlessly on the evildoers Orly presents to her. It is a perfect relationship except that Orly is dying of cancer. Yelena must decide between allowing her little girl to perish or preventing her death by condemning Orly to the loveless eternity of a child vampire.
Tomoguchi wrote The Scribbled Victims as a way to explore different types of love between people, including obsessive romantic love and how it can be tempered upon discovering the love for a child. “A vampire novel seemed like the perfect way to express undying love as I would be writing about immortals. It allowed me to have two characters I love very much collide on the page.”
“The Scribbled Victims had my heart pumping as I turned each page, it is the best Vampire story I have read to date. I hope it is made into a feature film,” Nick Lang.
Robert Tomoguchi has authored five previous short story books with a gothic theme that have received countless five-star reviews. He holds a degree in Modern Literary Studies from UC Santa Cruz. He had the same goal since he was 13 (now 44) –to become a full-time writer. Tomoguchi also penned stage plays and screenplays, but fiction has always been his truest passion. The Scribbled Victims is his first full-length novel.
The Scribbled Victims is available on Amazon.com and select booksellers.
