I'm writing my first book. Here's what I have so far: In a small town during the late nineteenth century, a handsome, wealthy man with no servants moves into a relatively large house that has remained unoccupied for a long time. The mother(a cook because meat symbolism) of the main character, who is sixteen, sends her daughter to the house to bring food to and greet their new neighbor while secretly hoping a bond forms between them and they get married. The girl greets the man, who is a little stoic, but mildly handsome and looks no older than his mid-thirties. Through various events, she becomes smitten with him. The people close to her begin dying one by one by various means, starting with her father. At the very end of the book, he proposes to her in his home and right after she accepts, he bites into her neck and kills her. The next chapter would take place from the point of view an old man who likes to go on walks in the morning. He finds the mangled, dead, naked corpse of the girl being eaten by crows(who will appear a lot in the story before this). The house of the gentleman will be abandoned. The girl is somewhat neurotic and judgmental. This idea started out as a sort of Twilight, "parody", but now I want to write something that stands on its own merits. I want to show the girl becoming morally corrupt and sort of, "falling". The vampire is an allegory for both sexual predators and vanity. Her increasing infatuation with the man will just have the veneer of a romance, while the story is in fact a tragedy. The problem is that i'm very ignorant and have no clue how to pull this off. Please help.
