Oh yeah, zombies!

I’m a fan of zombies, right behind vampires. And I’ve wanted to write a zombie story for several years now. When I was given the opportunity to include a short story in a Zombie anthology coming out very soon, I decided to revamp my zombie idea and get to writing. (Yes, I used a vampire pun. Lol!)

Be sure to check out the cover and description of the story below.

ZombieWolf_1600_2400

What is Zombie Wolf (The Next Generation #1) About?

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.

Zombie Authors

There are several wonderful authors who will be in this FREE Anthology. I’m listening a few of their names below. Click on each name and explore the author’s Amazon page.

The Vampire from Hell Returns (Part 4) Update

Work on the next installment in the Vampire from Hell continues. A late summer release is still on the calendar. The reason I’m bringing it up is because Part 4 is going to have a cliffhanger ending.  I typically do this with most of my books. And if you read Part 4, you’ll see where the series is heading …

towards the Next Generation of …

what exactly?

What indeed 😀 I can’t say.

Part 4 is in Production

You haven’t seen the last of the Vampire from Hell. Indeed, Part 4 is rising. I’ve had a few people ask me and many more people check my Coming Soon page on my blog, so I thought I’d share a blog post today.

I haven’t stopped my series, The Vampire from Hell. I’ve just run into some real life complications while writing the next installment, “The Vampire from Hell Returns (Part 4).” That’s why it’s taking me so long to get this done. I apologize for making all of you wait. But please remember, I’m still here and still writing this story for you. It’s not over. You’ll hear more from Rayea soon.

Releasing Date for Part 4?

Because I’ve already balked on Part 4’s release more times than I’d like to admit, I won’t be declaring a release date for this installment or future installments. If everything goes well, Part for will be released ON or BEFORE August 31, 2013. My birthday is Labor Day weekend and I want to have this next installment in your hands before then.

What I can say that I will be doing is getting ready for the release when it’s two weeks out. Once you see me talking a lot about Part 4, that will give you a good indication. I’ll probably announce a Release Weekend so that when it goes live on Amazon and Barnes & Noble everyone will see the links.

Once this installment does go live, I’m going to be promoting the Hell out of it. (Sorry for the pun.) You’ll be sick of hearing about Part 4 after another two week period. I’ll go ahead and apologize now for that. If you’d like to help me promote Part 4, join my Street Team. I’ll be giving away prizes to people who go above and beyond with helping me promote this book.

The Latest Promo Cover & Snippet

Below is the latest promo cover I put on my Facebook page for Part 4. This is from a possible closing scene to Part 4. I’m still working on it. This is the first time I’ve written the ending before the Prologue because I have a specific idea of how Part 4 will lead in to Part 5. Yes, a Part 5 installment is already being worked on. 😀

As I write, I’m creating new ones every few weeks. You can see all of them at http://pinterest.com/vampirefromhell/part-4-the-vampire-from-hell-returns/

Snippet from “The Vampire from Hell Returns (Part 4)” –

“Suddenly I felt the fear rise up in the pit of my stomach.  It had always been my reaction when Father screamed or yelled at me.  Instantly and inwardly, I backed down.  No questions asked.  Then it dawned on me.  I could end this cycle here and now.  I didn’t need Father’s blessings or Stephanie’s sisterly love.  I didn’t either of them.  You are not your father’s daughter.  I didn’t have to be Satan’s daughter anymore.  I could be just me, whoever that was.  I had people who love me.  Me, just for me, despite everything that had happened to me before.  And I had tried to help the people here, giving them my blood to survive Stephanie’s tortures.

Finally I rose to my feet and I heard Stephanie gasp in horror.”

Author Note: My phrase “Part 4 is rising” has many meanings to me as I write this. One being of course – as you may guess – Rayea possibly standing up (literally and figuratively) to her father. We’ll see how the writing goes with this ending scene.

Have a great week everyone!

My Giveaway

For this blog hop, I’m sharing a giveaway featuring a special man in my life because he is in both the following series:

The Vampire from Hell (known as Death, the Angel of Death)

Fanged Love (known simply as Demetri)

His love life is somewhat complicated because he still holds feelings for his ex-girlfriend, Rayea, the Vampire from Hell and a new woman who has crossed his path, Grace.

Click the image to view Fanged Love on Amazon.

What is Fanged Love: The Prequel About?

In one night Grace realizes her boyfriend is destined to be her greatest enemy. Following Nathan into a world of bloodletting and vampirism was a bad idea and she wants out. Grace plans to escape the clutches of her controlling boyfriend as she learns he is going to sell her to the top buyer, a woman he met on the internet called the new Medusa.

Grace’s plan quickly changes when the Angel of Death shows up, telling her she has sent for him. Will Grace seek salvation in the arms of this stunningly, handsome man known as Demetri?

A few characters you have met in the Vampire from Hell series appear in this new series.

Excerpt from “Fanged Love: The Prequel”

Author Note: This excerpt is told by Grace’s point of view.

His quiet confidence was a breath of fresh air compared to Nathan’s barking orders as he griped my elbows.  “We’re almost there.  Hold on.”

I felt like I was walking my last mile with a glorious champion.  Then a strange thought surfaced in my head.  What is your name?  I’m about to die and I don’t know your name, my knight.  If he could read my thoughts, surely he’d hear that.  How many people had called the Angel of Death a knight, a knight in shining armor or a shiny car as it seemed it was.  Glancing at the dashboard of the vehicle as I settled in the comfortable passenger seat, I noticed his car of choice was German made.

I leaned my head against the cool leather headrest, folding my arms around my wounded body and studied him.  Knowing I was beyond hope, I wanted to look at him.  I felt peace doing just that.  This handsome man was a vision, an angel of death taking me away in a chariot, a German made chariot I corrected myself, but a means of escape no less.  I felt like cherubs from the heavens should be trumpeting in the background, ushering me off into an external bliss with this man.  I felt safe with this stranger for absolutely no reason whatsoever.  It was deliciously insane, and despite my predicament, it gave me hope.

Before he turned over the ignition, he gasped and yanked his hand from the keys.  He focused on the steering wheel, his dark eyes darting from side to side.  Finally he asked me, “Was that you?  Did I just hear you speak to me?”

I smiled faintly.  “It worked,” I whispered.  I pressed my head into the seat so I wouldn’t pass out.  I fought to keep my eyes open.  Your name, I asked him again telepathically.

He laughed out loud and raked his fingers through sun-kissed locks.  “Wouldn’t you know it?  Of all the people!”

I bit the inside of my lip, drinking in his appearance.  Had you been my first and not Nathan, I’d never let you leave the bedroom.

Lightly the stranger chuckled and blushed slightly as he glanced over to look at me, shoving the keys into the ignition again.  “I heard that.  You have to be careful.  Remember I don’t know you, Grace.”

“I’d like to know you.”

“Oh lordy.” He sighed again, fumbling for the keys.  “You’re not shy, are you?  Look, I’m not your friend.  I have a job to do.  That’s it.  I have to get you healed or it’s my ass, so that’s what we are going to do.”

His words instantly sobered me, but his frown and sharp tone told me otherwise.  By the expression on his face, I knew he realized he had been too harsh with me.

Roughly he patted me on the knee and started the car.  “I’m sorry.  My name is Demetri.  Okay?  But everyone calls me Death.  You can too.”

Slowly I nodded.

The engine roared and the car jerked into traffic.  I heard a few honks of horns blaring at us as the stranger whose name I now knew drove us away along the streets of San Francisco.  I didn’t know where we were going and I didn’t care.  I had been saved, and I didn’t care what happened to me next.  This devastatingly attractive man had saved me and now I could die in peace.  Demetri.  Demetri.  Demetri.  I repeated his name over and over in my head, knowing likely he could hear my thoughts.  I liked the way his name sounded.  It sounded old, but very modern.  It reminded me of white-sand beaches, tall swaying palm trees, calm waters, and sunshine so bright on your face you couldn’t see anything before you and you didn’t care.  Spending eternity like that with him would be heaven.  Hoping to dream of us together on that beach, I closed my eyes.  I’d finally die happy.

Excerpt from “The Vampire from Hell (Part 3) – A Vampire on Vacation”

Author Note: This excerpt is told by the point of view of Rayea, the Vampire from Hell. Rayea is Death (Demetri’s ex-girlfriend) and when Demetri realized that Grace is dying he takes Grace to Rayea, hoping she can save her live.

“Grace, I want you to trust me, okay?  I can help you, but I know you fear vampires.”

She stiffened again in the chair, pushing backwards into the fabric and winced in pain.

“It’s okay.  It’s okay,” I said taking her hands in mine.  “I won’t hurt you, but we need to heal you.  You must want to live though.  I can’t make you want this.  Live for revenge if that is enough.  You can seek vengeance on Nathan, your asshole boyfriend.”

Rigid with fear, she managed to nod at me.  She bared her teeth at me when another seizure of pain hit her.  No fangs.  Maybe she wasn’t like me after all.

I glanced around and saw Death standing in the doorway.  “Do you think it’ll work?”

“I have no idea,” I stated flatly.  “But I have to try.”

Slowly Grace dropped my hands and extended her arm towards Death.  “Demetri,” she whispered.

He rushed over to her in the chair and took her hand in his.  “I’ll do whatever I can.  If you don’t survive, I’ll come for you.  Do you understand me?  I’ll find you no matter what.”

Seeing him respond to her request and verbally vomit a slew of promises he may not be able to keep, a slight smile played across my face.  My eyebrows raised in amazement as my eyes widened.  I exhaled slowly.  My ex-boyfriend was finally in love.  It was a glorious sight.  As my face shifted into a wide grin, Death bumped me with his hip.

“Shut up,” he mouthed with his lips.

I continued to smile like an idiot at him.  We’ll save her.  Don’t worry.  I let my thoughts pass quietly to him, not knowing if he could hear me telepathically.

“Do whatever you can please,” he replied.  “I’m not giving this one up without a fight.”

What is the Vampire from Hell About?

According to Rayea, the oldest daughter of Satan, the origin of vampires started in Hell, and it started with her. Ally Thomas offers the first volume of the Vampire from Hell series in this collection. It includes the first three parts of the series.

“The Vampire from Hell (Part 1) – The Beginning” – 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.

“The Vampire from Hell (Part 2) – A Vampire Among Angels” – Living a life with an overbearing father can be a challenge. For Rayea whose father is the fallen angel, Lucifer, it’s been torture. In the second installment of the series, Rayea finds peace when she visits the House of G. There she hopes for a new beginning among Blick’s angelic friends, only to discover a vampire from Hell may not be welcome.

“The Vampire from Hell (Part 3) – A Vampire On Vacation” – As a vampire from Hell, Rayea’s life is rather complicated so when she’s given an opportunity to take a vacation on Earth, she jumps at the chance. She’s coming to terms with being a vampire and knowing her father is out of her life for good. In the third part of the series, Rayea travels to Earth hoping to meet her online friends, leave her disturbing past behind her, and embark on a new future without her meddling family.

The Vampire from Hell, a novella series, is being released in installments and continues Spring 2013 with “The Vampire from Hell Returns (Part 4).”

Hump Day HookIt’s Wednesday…and today I’m joining the Hump Day Hook Blog Hop sponsored by some friends in the UK and featuring a wonderful group of talented authors such as Alexandra Anthony and Victoria Embers and more who share a paragraph or two of their work in progress (WIP) or published book.

This week, I’m going to share a paragraph from the upcoming “The Vampire from Hell Returns (Part 4)”.  Be sure to check back each Wednesday for more snippets from this upcoming book of mine and other books.

Read the Snippet

I closed my eyes and let Blick hold me.  My mind and body instantly calmed.  I sank into his embrace.  No questions asked.  He didn’t say a word as he held me.  He simply rocked me slightly back and forth as he stroked my black hair.  I wanted to collapse into a pile of jelly on the beach before him.

I pushed away from him some to give us a little bit of distance as his hands slowly traveled to rest on my waist.  I felt his touch tickle the small of my back as he laced his fingers in a couple of the belt loops on my blue jeans.  Must this end? I wondered.The Vampire from Hell Returns (Part 4)

“I’m sorry, Blick.  I know this is no laughing matter.  I’ve got to go.  I’ve got to save Lynn and Ashton if it’s not too late.  What did J tell you that I’m not supposed to know?”

“It’s your first mission.  It’s a test.  J said if you save your friends, the council will look favorably on that.  But he wants to explore more options.  He’s making some calls now.”

My eyes grew wide as I listened to him.  “We’re running out of time!”
