Some bloodsuckers just get all the luck… but which one deserves your red hot, precious attention? Meet your candidates Tonight, After Dark, At Midnight under the Moonlight!

Shall you pleasure ANN, the scorned mistress aided by her lover ERIC or the beautiful, but evil and deadly Welshire enemy LILITH?  But what of ELIZABETH, the unloved wife supported by RAIN, a fearless Kiowa warrior or her debutant daughter VICTORIA, the favorite of her father ANTONIO?

Ladies, moody and melodramatic rival brothers JAMES and GASTON are vying for your attention! Can sister SAMANTHA keep them away from each other’s throats?  Of course, we can’t forget the dark horse STEPHANIE- the alluring doctor seems to straddle the line between Welshire and Lilithan covens-er parties. And what of the mysterious lobbyist MESTIPHLES who seemingly supports political veins on both sides?

Where can you dish on the fierce and bloody politics? Stop by Muse It Up Publishing and sink your teeth into the seven testaments as told by Professor A. James: Love, Punishment, Struggle, Debauchery, Lust, Humanity, Resurrection.  Select your candidate and take him or her to the grave with you- or at the very least stay up all night with these hard at work night owls as they pine away at their virtual vampy headquarters,

Canadian epublisher Muse it Up Publishing will offer FATE and FANGS, Tales from the Vampire Family as told by Professor A. James beginning in August 2011.  The 7 book series is projected to run through February 2012, and there's plenty to sink your teeth into!

 3. Struggle: Elizabeth in America - Seeking solace and solitude from her unhappy home life as the unloved wife of Antonio, Elizabeth travels to colonial America.  On the outskirts of civilization, she meets Rain, a young Kiowa warrior on a vision quest.  Will his lack of fear and gripping hothouse experience help Elizabeth’s face the vampire truths she sought to escape? 
 4. Debauchery: Victoria's Burning - Victoria uses the fallout from the American Civil War to her advantage-or so the beautiful but deadly blockade-runner hopes.  After all her using, abusing, and feedings, Victoria’s slaves finally take matters into their own hands, forcing Antonio’s daughter to face her own mortality. 
 5. Lust: James at the Sundowner - The Sundowner offers steamy Welshire vampires Jessica, Pamela, and Slava for underground vampire sex and biting fetishes, but Victoria’s twin brother James is content with his gig as piano player at the club owned by their brother Stephen.  James’ own love Catrina is the alluring singer at there, but can he keep his longtime vampire companion away from the tempting, exciting young clientele?  
 6. Humanity: A Letter from Gaston - Gaston is trying to move on with his life now that the Vampire Family has been is human again.  Unfortunately, his sister Victoria cannot cope with the change and succumbs to drugs, depression, and sex binges with her former fledgling Caine.  When Gaston looses his job over Victoria’s suicide attempt, their pregnant sister Samantha comes to London to help-making a journey that could be disastrous to her unborn children. 
7.  Resurrection: Stephanie after the Lilithan - Former Lilithan vampire and newly divorced scientist Stephanie can’t get over how much she misses being a vampire.  After a harrowing car accident, she meets Mestiphles, the giver and taker of vampire power on both sides of the coven wars.  His charm and seductive powers sweeten the demonic offer he extends, but will Stephanie accept?

Suffer my Wrath, Hackers!

Well fiendish folks!  After all the great news about receiving a publication date at Muse It Up Publishing for our 7 book sequel series FATE and FANGS, we here at The Vampire Family also had a bit of sad news.  Our flagship website For Flying Servants Only....... has been hacked!  How dare you people!

I must be a bad webmistress to the Family!  One day after updating the website for all the FATE and FANGS 2011 campaign glory, we were shot down.  Some of the pages look garbled, incomplete, and cut off; but others shut down Firefox and warn of a malware and download ruthless.  Unfortunately I must advise avoiding our page until we resolve the problem.  Our other blog services, myspace, livejournal, yahoo group, and Facebook pages, fangfully, are running smoothly. 

I suspect there are malicious people out there who just want to diss me, my work, or vamps-whether they be unlike the glitter of Twilight or not.  However, I seriously object to putting a bug on my site that could harm virtual visitors and their systems.  That is just wrong.  Treat people how you wish to be treated!  Would you want one of our vampires to come along and rip your throat out?  I think not! This is what's wrong with the internet.  You put something out to be read and discussed with the intelligent reading public worldwide. You don't expect your attempt at value and entertainment to be vandalized.  Yes, this is virtual vandalism on my intellectual property! How dare you! I know I said it above but it bears repeating!  How dare you!

Sigh, as I said, do join us elsewhere online and check back at to stay up to date on all the FATE and FANGS magic!  I can't say I blame folks for disliking all the mainstream glitter and teen dream that modern vampiric interpretations have brought.  However, we shall continue to present literature of maturity, quality, and most importantly: Scary vampires with bite!

Thank you for your readership!
