Prepare for Humanity in 2012!

"After several lengthy years of study and a very slow restoration process on the oldest documents, I succumbed to an offer of assistance from a student named Theodore Plunkett.  A scholar of ancient languages, Theodore’s detailed list of degrees and credentials were too numerous for his youthful appearance.  His intelligence was vast; yet he was a personal master at comprehending and restoring the fantastic tales of Antonio Welshire and his mad family’s descent into the dark world of vampirism.  From patriarch Antonio’s brutal human days to the coven’s near destruction by the rival Lilithan vampires and the ambiguous Mestiphles’ meddling appearances and disappearances; this Vampire Family’s history is very well documented through some centuries and bare and bleak in others. Some journals are utterly disturbing in their tales of blood and mayhem while other diaries are strangely heartfelt, bittersweet, and uncomfortably endearing...."

-Professor James shares his thoughts with each tale from Fate and Fangs! Don't forget after Book 5 Lust this December, we're still steamrolling on in 2012 with Humanity and Resurrection!

Love, Punishment, Struggle, Debauchery, Lust, Humanity, Resurrection... ...Fate...Fangs....Make  your choice before choice is not an option....

Fate, Fangs, Lust Await!

"Unfortunately, after five centuries or so, the comfortable vampire enchantment can, in fact, wane. Sometimes I think Catrina is longing for something more-just like her fooled admirers.  I enjoy my music.  I have to occupy myself with some post-war Goodman ‘Moonglow’ and Miller ‘Serenade in Blue’ in order to control my Welshire urges.  These dark gifts cannot and shall not rule me.  I will not succumb to animal anarchy the way Stephen does.  For myself, I am content in my respectable role here until the next war comes calling. Can I admit to myself that I know Catrina is not content?  How could she be?  My voluptuous love has the predatory power of the wolf and all her fun feline charm.  I enjoy watching her exude the dark magic allure as I play the music for her.  Her exotic and spooky look brings the silver screen to life-curly black hair and white skin stamped with a perfectly deadly pout of red lips.  I love her, I always have.  I could not bring the vampiric gifts to anyone I did not love.  I expected to spend the rest of my unnatural life with her. Although I don’t doubt Catrina loves me and will always have a space for me in her black heart still; deep down I know she intends to leave me for new vampire LUST........"

And so begins Fate and Fangs: Tales from the Vampire Family Book 5 Lust. We're available now at Muse It Up!

Vampires in the fifties doing very bad things.  Oh yes!

Keep up to date on all the Lust latest on the blog or facebook!

Meet LUST This Friday!

Book 5 of my on going Fate and Fangs: Tales from the Vampire Family series with Muse It Up Publishing hits the virtual storefronts this Friday December 2- and it all keeps getting more and more twisted, disturbing, and vampire juicinessesy as the months continue! 
Here's our official blurb on how saucy vampires will turn 1955 on its head and go deep into the bloody gutter:

The Sundowner offers steamy Welshire vampires Jessica, Pamela, and Slava for underground vampire sex and biting fetishes in this mid-century tale from Professor James. Victoria’s twin brother James, however, 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 The Sundowner, but can he keep his longtime vampire companion away from the tempting, exciting young clientele?
We're Live Friday!  I know I said it before, but it bears repeating.  Take a gander at our Muse preview page, and hey, while you're there, pick yourself up some of that Love, Punishment, Struggle, or Debauchery from our previous Fate and Fangs releases for the holidays!
 Also, don't forget to scoop out our latest virtual tour stops with Margaret West and Roseanne Dowell! Both conversations should be live on Monday. While you wait for the Lust and chattery, check out our previous interviews with Margaret and Roseanne!
I'm curious, which kind of vampire would you be?  The decadent reveling it up like Victoria from Fate and Fangs Book 4, Debauchery? Or would you be the sullen anti the bloodsucking family business like James for Lust?

In Professor Welshire’s fourth Fate and Fangs chronicle, 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......


"Hello Mother,

I have never conformed to normal societal standards; you know I have looked after my own cares, perhaps even selfishly some might say. However, amid this sad state in America’s affairs, it was in my best interests to marry.  Yes, marry.   I’m sure you wish to know his titles and ancestry for your histories, but none such matters to me. His name isn’t even important, for he wasn’t around long.  His funeral is tomorrow in fact—a gentleman’s funeral for a wealthy gentleman from North Carolina.  

I apologize if I’m late in my correspondence.  You know I don’t like to write. I imagine you might have wished a traditional spectacle at this news, Mother, your one moment of pride and pretense that you have a normal daughter and a proper family.  Ha!"

Previously we had a virtual summer visit with Cate Masters, and this Sunday November 6, we'll be having another Author's Spotlight with Cate to celebrate Debauchery.  Catch up on our previous interview and stop by our new chit chat- as we will be having a special Debauchery: Victoria's Burning giveaway!  You do want a chance at a free e copy, don't you? You know you do!

I was also very touched this week to have several new friends contact me about how informative and inspiring the New Jersey Author's Network Panel on Getting Publishing was this past Tuesday in Cherry Hill.  One fellow author has also blogged her praise.  If you are a writer or aspiring author in the New Jersey area, do please consider joining our little group.  More events are also in the works for 2012 and I can't wait!!  Good thing I have 3 more helpings of Fate and Fangs to survive yet, teehee.

After our visit with Cate, join me and my fellow Musers 9 p.m. est Wednesday November 16 at Two Lips Reviews for a Live Chat!!! If you've been to our chats before, you know what a fun wild bunch we can be, so pencil us in before Thanksgiving, as I believe this is the last one before the Holidays!

November Hysteria and DEBAUCHERY!

We're still reeling in the throws of an October well spent on Struggle and more virtual mayhem and real world madness, and what happens? November rears its ugly autumn head with even more decadence and Debauchery, the fourth tale in the Fate and Fangs: Tales from the Vampire Family series going on now with Muse It Up Publishing.  Whew! 


If you missed any of our hijinks and virtual trouble making with Beth Ann Masarik last month, you can still catch the madness free at Smashwords with the Literary Lunes magazine!

Download this free ezine and read all the behind the scenes scares in making Fate and Fangs, and did I mention it was free?

Tonight at the Cherry Hill Library with my fellow New Jersey Authors Network, uh, fellows, was also spectacular!  I simply adore being able to sit down and talk books, discuss the craft, and inspire other writers to take the glorious leap into bookdom!!!!!

Keep an eye on the NJAN website for more upcoming events!!

As it is the season of Debauchery as well as thanks, I must take time and thank all our friends on The Vampire Family's facebook page!  We had 3 winners for our Fate and Fangs Halloween Contest, Brandy, Dawn, and Lisette.  Congrats and again, big big thanks to all who joined our little spooky corner of the social media to participate.  Props also to Lark, our winner at the Love and Romance Cafe's Halloween Spooktacular!   And again, major props and blessings to all those who've come out for our real world delectables! 

Now then, onto some non fiction!  Just because Halloween is over it doesn't mean that the  horror is going to stop at my review blog I Think, Therefore I Review!  We've been going strong on the scary since July, and it's going to get even freakier before the holiday magics kick in for Thanksgiving.  Visit us anytime for all things spooky, or browse our previous commentaries on classic drama, TV on DVD, music goods, book analysis, and more!

"Do you give up, or are you thirsty for more?"
Look for us again this month with Cate Masters, Two Lips Reviews, Sandra Clarke, and more!
