Here’s a snippet from Chapter 1 – Deadness in Blood of the Gods (The Vampire from Hell – Part 5) which is currently in progress. Happy Monday and Enjoy!

SPOILER ALERT: Please note: If you have not read The Vampire from Hell Returns (Part 4), the following excerpt does contain spoilers.

Please Note: The following sample may or may not be the final version that is included in the edition on the release date.

Chapter 1 –Deadness

Being dead is a lot like sitting all by yourself inside your own head.  No light.  No noises.  No interaction with others.  Nothing except blackness before your eyes.  Silence.  It was a far greater hell than I’d ever want to wish on anyone, even my enemies.

Probably the one thing that kept me going doing my prison in darkness was the dreams.  The images of my being with a man I hoped to meet someday.  He was taller than me by several inches.  I’d enjoy staring up into his gleaming gold eyes and rugged face.  His black hair framed his face nicely, and I’d giggle to myself when his long bangs fell into his eyes because his hair seemed to annoy him, but not enough to cut it.  His voice was deep.  A sound I dare say comforted me.  It seemed I felt safe with him, when I’d dream of him.  I’d spend hours staring off into a dark abyss, and when sleep finally took me, he was there, holding me in his arms, or sitting with me, or listening to me talk, or…well, I’m not going to kiss and tell.  You know what I mean.

Rarely he’d speak.  Sometimes he did.  Mostly he’d whisper in my ear or along the inside of my neck.  His touch was soft and warm, very inviting.  He was always so near to me when I dreamed of him.  Even though he always refused to tell me his name, I knew I could trust him.  I enjoyed that feeling of contentment.  In my hole of despairing death, I clung to that one feeling.  Dare I say, I survived because of that one decision I had made, to trust the man in my dreams.

I stayed like that for months I suppose.  I don’t really know how long it was.  I just know I woke up one morning.  I woke up to new challenges.  New realizations.  New situations.  A whole lot of questions, and a room filled with walking and talking skeletons.

The kicker?

I didn’t know who I was.  I had no memory of anything before that first day.  My rebirth day, I called it.  I knew nothing at all.  I had no idea I was the Vampire from Hell.  I didn’t know my father was Satan or that I had a sister who looked like Medusa’s younger niece.  I didn’t know that both of them were dead because of me.  I didn’t know that my friends and my best friend, Blick desperately struggled to find me.  And to add to my discontent, I had no idea that I had a lot of blood on my hands.  I had killed many people, good and bad.  Likewise, I had no idea of any of my past indiscretions with an angel who was now an angelic vampire or with an actor who I was told I would drool over.  None of it made sense to me.  It was a tale told by others, a tale I couldn’t believe or understand.  My own life was not my own.  I was walking around, waiting for the other fang to drop.  (Sorry for the pun.)  A feeling in the back of my skull told me I would soon learn it all.  And for better or worst, I would have to deal with the consequences of my past actions.

About Vampire Tears (A Collection of Poetry)

This first collection of poetry by author Ally Thomas focuses on paranormal creatures, primarily vampires. Think of it as if you are walking through the mind of a vampire. You witness their confessions, their fears, their trepidations, their doubts, and their tears. Many of the thirty poems, written in free verse, are ‘dark poetry’ and each shares a vampire’s heart and soul filled with regret, longing, perhaps anger or rage, and some of quiet desperation left unspoken.

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be participating in two Facebook party events for fellow Indie Authors, Sharon Hamilton and Catherine Wolffe. Please stop by and join us for the fun. Giveaways and prizes will be shared!

Marc Beale and several of his brothers from SEAL Team 3 board a cruise ship to bury a fallen buddy’s aches at sea. A risky affair with a beautiful Italian the night before they leave begins to ease his survivor’s guilt.

Sophia Negri, suffering jitters over her engagement, falls for the handsome SEAL and pretends she speaks no English, letting their bodies do the talking. When Marc finds her on the ship and learns Sophia is half American, he is angry at first, but falls for her all over again as they set sail.

Terrorists take over the ship and hold the passengers for ransom, Marc and the other SEALs are the only ones who can stop the plot. Will Marc’s actions be enough to save Sophia or will he have to sacrifice himself to save the woman he loves?

Abandoned as a baby by the town’s most influential man, Earl Loflin, Casey’s plan includes going to any length to shame the man who sired her. Charles sees her plan as a foolhardy attempt at revenge. He’ll do his best to protect her without resorting to the methods of his past. But when his past comes calling and Casey walks blindly into a trap, he’s the only man who can save her and any future they have together.

According to Rayea, the oldest daughter of Satan, the origin of vampires started in Hell, and it started with her. Here’s her story about how it all began. Rayea isn’t daddy’s little girl, even if he is the most powerful fallen angel around. He wants her to take an active role in the family business. But she’s not interested in his schemes for world domination. Instead she wants to spend her time shopping on the Internet, rescuing humans from a horrific eternity, and practicing martial arts with her seven foot hellhound. Then one day everything changes.

Since Part 1 is relatively short because it was the short story that started the series, I added “The Vampire from Hell (Part 2) – A Vampire Among Angels” to the paperback edition.

Go to “My Books” or “Coming Soon” for more information about the next installment in this series.

Zombie Wolf: The Next Generation (Excerpt) in Darlings of Decay

Cover art by Damon Za at damonza.com

Ally Thomas shares a short story from her upcoming paranormal fantasy book called Zombie Wolf: The Next Generation #1. You can click here to read it for FREE in the zombie anthology, Darlings of Decay.

At twenty-four Zachary has been through many zombie outbreaks and knows how to stay alive. He’s been so good at killing zombies for so many years that he makes a living at it. He claims it’s the reason he has the nickname the ‘Zombie Wolf,’ even though he knows that’s not the case.

With time and space travel being as common as the Internet and cell phones, Zachary and his team travel often to kill zombies and rid the solar system of total infestation. Now in the year 3015 A.D., more sightings of zombies are being reported on Planet Earth, but no one knows how to kill these snake-like creatures. Zachary’s destiny unfolds when he comes face to face with the next generation of zombie and an innocent bystander gets bitten. He considers killing the attractive girl because she’s as good as dead anyways. But when he sees she has a werewolf mark, same as what he has, he knows he must save her.
