Posts Tagged ‘vampire from hell part 4’

Happy Thanksgiving everyone 😀 Today my post is relatively simple. 

This year I’m thankful for my health. Recovering from a nasty throat infection reminded me how infrequent it is that I get sick. I’m thankful for that, and I shouldn’t take it for granted as I’ve probably been guilty in the past of doing.

I’m also thankful for the wonderful friendships I have with many members of my family, and my extended families. I cherish the moments I have with them, visiting and getting to know them as individuals, not just my relatives, and I’m thankful I currently have the luxury to chisel in time to see many of them during my daily life, and not just on holidays.

One reason being I just found out this weekend I have to work, so while family is visiting, I’ll be stuck at my computer. Ugh! The joys of freelancing. No matter. I’m not letting that bum me out. Thursday (today) will be my free today!

I’m also thankful, and grateful, for all my online friends (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, my blog, etc.)  Those who post a pic, a comment, a quick hello… I tend to bury my head in my stories about Rayea, especially when I’m on deadline and forget to venture over to their corner of the world and say, “Hi.” It makes my day when I hear from you.  Writing is such a solitary task. And I don’t want to take for granted the love I receive from you guys, or expect it while I’m off dreaming up ideas for stories. I’d say that next to the actual act of writing, chatting with my online friends, many who have started out as readers, is a fun bonus to this hobby of mine.

Lastly, I’m thankful for the fact that people want to read my books. After my hiatus from writing (Summer 2012 to Summer 2013), I’m thankful for the amazing interest my latest installment “The Vampire from Hell Returns (Part 4)” has been getting. It’s been a great two months since its release on Oct. 15, 2013. And funny enough, I’m currently working on Part 5. (Yep, you read that right.) Rayea and I are back!

I’m still showing up at the keyboard, giving it a whirl. Some days are productive days. Some days aren’t, but that’s okay. I’ve learned a lot about the craft of writing, the pros, the cons, the joys, and the heartaches. I’m thankful I’ve learned these lessons, and without experiencing “the journey” as I like to call it, I wouldn’t still be devoted to my craft.

The Vampire from Hell Returns (Part 4) 

The Blood of the gods has brought a new dimension to Rayea’s life as the vampire from Hell. In the fourth installment of the Vampire from Hell series, Rayea juggles her new responsibilities and starting a relationship with her best friend, Blick. Soon Rayea realizes her sordid past with her family may be catching up with her, and she’s going to have to deal with it once and for all. When two of her friends go missing, she knows she must begin a search to find them. And the first place she has to look? Hell.

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.

Excerpt from The Vampire from Hell Returns (Part 4)

If I could count the times I have woken up tied to a chair, I’d be a millionaire by now.  That’s where I found myself when I heard the voice of Stephanie, my demon sister.
“Welcome to Hell! We’re having a party in your honor, and you’re sleeping through it,
sssister,” she hissed.
I felt a blow blast across the right side of my head.  A hit delivered by someone I couldn’t see.  A blow for my sister’s amusement.

“What a lovely welcome home, dear sister!” I said sarcastically as I raised my head.It was on now. I smacked my mouth open wide, cranking my neck upwards as I extended my fangs.  The freakier I could look, the better, I thought.  When I surged my head upwards, a sharp pain sliced into my neck.  Something restrained me.  My fangs flipped inwardly and retreated to their hiding spot in the roof of my mouth. I tasted my own blood, and I had not bitten my tongue.  This could be bad, I thought.

“I’d be careful if I were you, sissy,” Stephanie said.  “That collar has spikes going into your neck.  The more you move, the more Typhean there will turn the corkscrew that holds the collar together.  The spikes are drilling into your neck.  If you jump suddenly, it’ll rip your head off, and then where will you be? One dead vampire.”

Part 4’s Release

I have returned to the keyboard and will be releasing “The Vampire from Hell Returns (Part 4)” in October. (Join the Facebook Release Party on Oct. 20th.)  I’m very excited to continue Rayea’s story, at least for three more installments, and I’m delighted to say that, for bad or worse, I’m past the first obstacle I encountered during my first year of writing.  And I’m not looking back.  It may not always be smooth sailing from now on, but that’s okay because I’ll keep sailing.  I’m hoping many of you will join me for the ride.

Chapter 1 is now live on Watt Pad and Scribd.com.

Please be aware that once Part 4 goes live, I’ll be aggressively promoting the book and series. You’ll hear a great deal about it being live which means you’ll see many posts from my blog here. If you’d like to help me promote the book, please email me at ally at allythomas dot com to learn how you can help.

New Release

VHell_Revamped_123It has been over a year since Part 3 – A Vampire on Vacation was published in July 2012.  Since then I have not released anything related to this series.  That’s a startling, and sobering fact, for me – even for my readers maybe– because for many months last year, I did not know if I’d return to writing this series.  I didn’t know if I’d keep writing at all.

Get Your Copy

Currently the Anniversary Edition is going live. You can view it at SmashwordsBarnes & Noble, and Amazon  as an ebook and in paperback.

What’s in the Anniversary Edition?

It contains the first 3 installments plus character sketches, story insights, hints about upcoming parts, behind the scenes information, excerpts from new works including the upcoming 4th installment, The Vampire from Hell Returns.

Spin-off to The Vampire from Hell series

If you are a fan of my series, The Vampire from Hell you may want to read more about a new short story by Ally Thomas. It is set in the year 3015 A.D. featuring a werewolf who was born with a blood virus. His mother is a vampire from Hell and his father is a hellhound turned werewolf. Sound familiar?

Meet Zachary, the Zombie Wolf.

I thought it would be fun to set a story around a child of Rayea and Blick’s. This is assuming that they actually get together, are married at some point, and live happily ever after with a son (if it occurs in that order). It’s a possibility for where the Vampire from Hell series may be headed. But it’s just a possibility.

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

A short story from an upcoming paranormal fantasy book called Zombie Wolf: The Next Generation #1 is currently available. You can click here to read it for FREE in the zombie anthology, Darlings of Decay. “Zombie Wolf: The Next Generation #1” will be out in 2014.

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.
