The Vampire Family on Fictionwise

Amazon: The Vampire Family in paperback!

“Tell me, Theodore.” Victoria poured more of the wine. “Do you want to live forever?”

“It is unnatural. If God wanted man to live forever, he would have made our fragile bodies unbreakable.”

“Your fragile body. Not mine.” Victoria poured more of the wine to replenish the already gone last shot. “And didn’t your own Moses and Noah, Abraham and Adam, didn’t they live to be nine hundred and some? Wouldn’t you like to prolong your life as they did?”

“How long?” Theodore asked. All fools want to live a moment longer, especially when they feel they are near the time of death, as Theodore felt he was.

“However long you want.”

“No.” Theodore was a man. “Dying is a part of life. Why prolong the inevitable?”

Victoria drank every last drop from her glass and then smashed it in the fire. “You are absolutely right.”

Victoria leaped to Theodore’s side and plunged a piece of broken glass into Theodore’s chest. She held his neck and twisted and turned the glass until it was embedded terribly deep. Theodore gasped at the pain.

“I‘ve pierced your lung. Within the hour, you will die.” Victoria released Theodore, and he fell to the floor on his chest, further embedding the glass.

“How does it feel?” Victoria taunted. “T o know you are a fragile being? A being whose life can be taken at any moment! Your precious God will take you whenever he wants, and no one can change his mind. My God is not like that. He makes me powerful and strong. I can prevent your God from taking you away.”

Victoria picked up another hot shard of glass and slit the palm of her hand. Before she was done making the burning incision, it had healed. Theodore was awed.

“I can take the pain away, Theodore. I can make it so pain can never come to you again…if you let me.”

I need to get cracking and upload my pictures from the Collingswood Book Fest! If you want a picture with yours truly, stop by 6 to 8 p.m. Friday October 16 at Bogart's Bookstore and Cafe!

See you soon!

It's October!! That means the virtual tour fest free for all in support of Fate and Fangs: Tales from the Vampire Family is in high gear, overdrive, and the mania stage!

Fortunately, readers, writers, authors, editors, and professionals in any of the horror, dark fantasy, or paranormal persuasions can join me and Fate and Fangs for our little spooky corner of the 2011 Muse Online Writers Conference. Stop by the Muse Chat Room 9 p.m. est Tuesday October 4 for the Trends in Horror Chat Discussion!


Join us in the evening for a casual but no less insightful and informative discussion on what authors are writing, what editors are buying, which monsters are hot, and what readers want. Hopefully we won't get too out of hand with the virtual sweets and treats!

Never fear if you miss the chat, of course, as you can take part in the big release of Book 3 in the Fate and Fangs series Friday October 7 at our Guest Day for the Muse Spooky Blog Month.

Seeking solace and solitude from her unhappy home life as the unloved wife of Antonio, Elizabeth travels to colonial America in Professor James’ third account. On the outskirts of the white man’s civilization, Elizabeth meets Rain, a young Kiowa warrior on a vision quest. Will his lack of fear, search for answers, and gripping hothouse experience help her face those very vampire truths she sought to escape?
