NEW RELEASE – Vampire Tears (A Collection of Poetry)
In this first collection of poetry, Ally Thomas focuses on her love of paranormal creatures, primarily vampires. Think of it as walking through the minds of various vampires. You witness their confessions, their delights, their fears, their trepidations, their doubts, and their tears. Many of the 50 poems, written in free verse, are ‘dark poetry’ and each reveals the vampire’s heart and soul filled with a variety of emotions – regret or rejoice, longing or loving, perhaps anger or rage, and even moments of quiet desperation left unspoken.
It was a great first weekend for The Vampire from Hell on Wattpad. Over 200 followers now! Wow!
The story is at #5 in the Vampire category! I never thought it would go that high! I was happy with #11 a day ago.
Seeing it’s been read over 30,000 times is certainly sweet and extremely intimidating. I’m trying not to think on that. I’ve been replying to comments and visit a few people’s pages. Love the platform for sure!

The Vampire from Hell: The Beginning – Part One (FREE Download)
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.
For some, love begins when you least expect it. For Elana, falling in love begins in Hell. When twenty-one-year-old Elana is kidnapped and finds herself in Hell of all places, she discovers something unique in her ancestry. She’s a werewolf and she’s fallen in love with someone unexpectedly Dante, the young demon who agrees to help her escape.
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 series.
Zombie Wolf: The Next Generation (Excerpt) in Darlings of Decay
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.
Happy Monday everyone! It’s that time again. Thanksgiving is behind us and it’s on to Christmas. Each Monday through December, I’ll be participating in the Manday Monday Hotties Blog Hop sponsored by Felicity Heaton.
Today I’m featuring a favorite picture of mine I used while creating the character, Blick from The Vampire from Hell series. I based my composite of Blick on the actor Ryan Reynolds.
Blick found me on the terrace, gazing at the ocean. It was the break of dawn, and he was headed out for another day of training. I wanted to ask him if he was okay with my missing a lot of our martial arts practice sessions, but I forgot the question when I saw him. I feared my sleep deprivation was causing me to hallucinate, and then I remembered Blick’s change.
Since arriving at the House of G, Blick had transformed from his Lycan-Underworld-movie look to that of a tall, unassuming man with chiseled facial features and gleaming gold eyes.
“I can’t get used to your shift into human form. Your goatee is very nice. You are handsome for a hellhound, you know?”
“Is that a sense of humor I detect today?” he replied, ignoring my observation. He was confident and determined standing there in his workout clothes which consisted of a bright white T-shirt clinging to his tanned lean frame, a pair of royal blue gym shorts, and white sneakers. The wind from the sea pushed a few wisps of his jet black hair into his eyes and he brushed them aside.
Hearing the love in his soft baritone voice was music to my ears. Since we didn’t need to be secretive anymore, we had fallen out of the habit of talking to each other telepathically.
“What about the nightmares?” he asked.
Tears rose in my eyes. I gritted my teeth and fought to compose myself, so I didn’t burst out crying like a little girl in front of him. “Ongoing,” I muttered. “Anytime I try to sleep, I see Father and Stephanie turn into monstrous snakes and chase after me.” Because I hadn’t been able to sleep for weeks, my life consisted of three activities: wandering around Blick’s home, surfing on my computer, or hanging out on the terrace (usually at night).
He nodded and placed his hand on my forehead, checking my body temperature. “You’re burning up,” he insisted.
“I think that’s just how I am now.” I smiled up at him weakly. The seven-foot hellhound I had raised from a pup in Hell was actually a seven-foot shapeshifting angel who was trying his best to take care of me. I called him ‘Papa’ especially when he was fussing over why my health was steadily declining. Blick wasn’t the only one worried about me. I was too.
“A friend is coming by later with some supplements. Will you answer the door this time, please?” he asked.
We stood on the terrace of his home in silence for a few moments, watching the waves. About eight two-story properties of high ranking angels including Blick’s home lined a sandy white beach nestled in a cove. His home was in the center of the arch-shaped cove, and I could look out from the terrace on the second floor and see the ocean. Towards the east, the ocean stretched out to what seemed like infinity. It was more beautiful than I’d imagined oceans could be. Now in the morning sunlight, the water glistened and danced, merging into hues of light blue and green. Were the oceans on Earth this blue? One day, I thought to myself, one day I’ll find out.
