“A Vampire Among Angels (Part 2)” gets a new cover!

As part of my promotion for the upcoming installment in the Vampire from Hell series, the Vampire from Hell Returns (Part 4), I decided to get a new cover designed for “A Vampire Among Angels (Part 1)”. Additionally, Part 1 – The Beginning will be getting a new cover. Stay tuned!

Special thanks to James with Humble Nations who recently designed this 2013 cover for Part 2 before Part 4’s release coming up in late September.  I decided as a treat, and part of the next installment’s promotion, to have all 3 covers redesigned with a fresh look for the book and series.  Usually I do all of my covers myself, so this was a fun step for me to have someone else do it.  James did a fabulous job and was a blast to work with.  Learn more about his exceptional, yet very affordable covers at his website – www.humblenations.com

Feel free to share your comments. Do you like this cover? Do you like it more or less than the original cover? Do you think it looks too sweet for Part 2?

“A Vampire Among Angels” is a FREE ebook at Amazon.

I have to send out a special THANK YOU to all those in the United Kingdom (UK) who are currently checking out Rayea’s story.  I was startled to learn this morning that A Vampire on Vacation (Part 3) is currently Number 1 on the Fantasy > Anthologies list at Amazon UK! And if you notice in the image I included in this blog post, the Vampire from Hell (Parts 1-3) isn’t too far behind.

I’ve seen some interest picking up for the Vampire from Hell series this year in the UK, but I didn’t expect to snag a number 1 spot on any list. While writing Part 4, it’s great to see. Again a huge thank you to my UK fans!!!

Now that the confetti, streamers, and beer bottles have been cleaned up, I’m happy to announce that my first book release party was, in my opinion, a huge success. We had it online in the Ally Thomas and the Vampire from Hell Community Group last Friday, July 6th for my finishing (and releasing) “A Vampire on Vacation,” the third installment in the Vampire from Hell series. 

With it being my first release party, I wasn’t sure how well it would go.  Thankfully readers did show up 🙂 We played games, posted pics, chatted, and had a great time. I have to admit I was focused on getting prizes offered and keeping track of game results and winners, so my participation was more admin than participant. I’ve recently reviewed the ‘transcript‘ for the party since I have it still online at the link below, and it was great to see that indeed everyone had a great time! I’ll certainly be throwing another one again, likely on a Saturday night instead of Friday. Oh and a non-holiday weekend. I learned that was probably not the best idea since some people may have already had plans scheduled.

Special thanks again to the following:

To all my friends and readers who showed up online to support me and jumped in to participate in the games.

To my Panel who helped judge and tally the posts, and offered great suggestions for intermission and breaks through out the evening as well as beer and brownies.

This party’s Panel included my hubby, my baby niece at 11 months old who was more concerned with talking to JJ, my dog or the balloon distribution than judging, my niece and nephew, and JJ, my dog who didn’t appreciate having to share his need for my attention with anyone, especially someone who wanted to pull on his tail (my baby niece). Hence the balloon distraction sponsored by my hubby.

And to my hubby for making sure the projector was up and working on the front lines so all of us in our living room could see the posts together instead of on individual laptops. See pic on the left.

As soon as I get all the items together, gift boxes and other prizes will be shipped out. Here’s a list of various prizes won by readers.  They include:

The Vampire from Hell Book Gift box includes any 3 of my paperbacks of the Vampire from Hell series. Each will be signed and sent to Winner Tammy S.

The Vampire on Vacation Gift Box includes any of these items: A signed Part 3 paperback, Vampire from Hell flip flops (size to be coordinated with winner), and an $10 Amazon gift card which will be going to Winner LoriC.

The Rayea At Home Gift box includes any of the following: A signed Part 3 paperback, a Part 3 coffee mug, packs of  tea, and a selected journal signed by the author. I can’t wait to send this gift box because I think it’s the most personalized one I thought of for this release party.  It’s going to Winner Stephanie S.

Door Prize winners for the best caption (on photos posted at the beginning of the party) were Dana, Mayrose, and Renee. Each one received an ebook of “The Vampire from Hell (Parts 1-3): The Volume Series #1” at Amazon.

We had 3 Grand Prizes too.

Three $25 Shopping Sprees at the Vampire from Hell store at CafePress.com were given to Winners Jaime, Alexandra, and Renee.
