Because horror writers write about the darker aspect of the human experience, or about humanity's fears, we're seen as being weirder. We're definitely outside what society considers normal. Yet, all those "normal" people read our books.

Honestly, I get more grief for being a woman writing horror than actually for being a horror writer. At this point, I just do what I love and ignore the naysayers.

Besides, my philosophy of life is everyday is Halloween. :)(less)

To celebrate the release of the third book in the Vampire Bride Dark Rebirth trilogy, I thought I’d put together a list of behind the scenes facts.


1. The official release date for The Lament of the Vampire Bride is the same date, May 21, as the last entry in The Vengeance of the Vampire Bride. I always knew there would be a leap backwards at the start of the third book, and coincidentally it ma...

Best regards,

P.J. Kelley Hi Rhiannon,

I emailed you out of the blue a few years back, and you were kind enough to give me some sterling advice about Indie publishing.

Thank you, and mad respect in general to you. You wouldn't remember me, most likely, but I will always be a fan.

I wrote a new book, and whatever you could do to help me would be greatly appreciated. I do think you might enjoy the book, and this is a very rare promotion from me.

I am sending this message to all my goodreads friends.

My new book is free tomorrow on Amazon (5/9/2015).

If you miss the free day, email me and I will send in any format.

You would be doing me a huge favor if you downloaded it and helped send it to the top of the free list for the day.

As an Indie writer, this is the best form of promotion I have.

The book is short, but it took me a couple of years to write, believe it or not, so I do not consider this request spam. I don't like everything I write, but I like this book, so am making this extra effort to promote it.

Also, if you do read the book, provide some honest input (I can take it) and pass the link along to your friends if you are willing.

Free 5-9-2015
Just published won't be free again.

Darlene Ruiz I love when I find awesome new vampire stories to read!!! I adore the Tale of the Vampire Bride and The Vengeance of the Vampire Bride. I hope a third book is in the making!! Gothic Horror is my favorite and my second favorite is probably vampire stories written in the south. Which is why I am reading Pretty when she dies!! Love Love!!


Beth  (Curling Up With A Good Book) Siege was amazing...Truly an awesome book---Had so much energy and fast paced action but with romance and drama as well!! I loved it!!

A lot of the ratings are for the self-published version. The recent reviews for the Tor version (which is the BEST version) are by reviewers who got advanced review copies or people who won an early copy. Xpresso Reads blog is hosting a giveaway for Siege right now.

Siege could show up in stores a week or two early. Good luck!
