Rising from the Dark Deluge for a FATE and FANGS CONTEST!

As I'm sure many of my fellow spooky friends are also re-birthing from the wrath of Hurricane Irene, now seems like a good time for some pre-Fall vampy cheer! Contest, anyone?

 Join us on The Vampire Family Facebook page tonight for a chance to win a few treats from our sequel series FATE and FANGS: Tales from the Vampire Family.

A free pdf copy of Book 1 Love: Ann and the Viking- available now from Muse It Up Publishing- will be up for treat. But wait!  We're also tossing an ecopy of Book 2!  Punishment: Lilith's Trials can be yours before its September 2 street date from Muse It Up!

Can't wait?  Don't want to test your luck? Shop Now or gander at an excerpt here:

Love: Ann and the Viking $2.50

Book 1 is also now available at Smash Words!

And of course Kindle!

Punishment: Lilith's Trials $.99!

In Professor James’ second tale, we share in the pain, suffering, and torment of the Welshire Vampire Family’s beautiful but deadly rival Lilith.  Her mysterious, vile nature and fantastical abuses are put on trial as the demonic advocate Mestiphles plays judge, jury, and executioner from his wicked Void of darkness and pain.  Is it wrong to delight in the just, even deserving torture Lilith receives? Will she learn and apply the cruel lesson Mestiphles teaches?


If you can't catch up with your FATE and FANGS tonight, no fear!  We have plenty more contest planned throughout the series' releases.  And  you can always can us anytime day or night- but mostly at night- at any of our usual haunts.

Ghastly fans can also find me at the decidedly ghoulish new social website, GHOUL TOOL!  Hopefully we will be scheduling a few chats with several of my fellow scary Eternal Press and Muse It Up Authors.

If you missed our interview with Chastity Bush, you can still stop by and follow her blog, too.

Before all the crazy floods and tropical torment, I also took part in the New Jersey Authors Network's panel on Getting Published at the Cinnaminson Library.  It was awesome!  There was just the right number of authors on the panel and guests looking for tricks of the trade for it to be casual and fun!  Another event is scheduled in Cinnaminson September 17, but my next live NJAN event will be the double bill Saturday October 15 at the Moorestown and Voorhees Libraries.  Visit the NJAN website for a complete list of upcoming treats!

Virtually, you can find a little Love and Punishment just about everywhere!

Love: Ann and the Viking On Sale NOW!

Forward by Professor A. James
In 1975 I acquired a collection of antique, but damaged manuscripts after a mysterious fire beguiled the dim British authorities for four years.  Somewhere along the frontier between England and Wales, in a crumbled vault beneath a burned mansion; dozens of leather bound journals, diaries, and books were rescued.  Their contents were fantastical: histories, ages of vampiric accounts, coven wars, and abstract chronicles. The police, of course, uneducated in such matters of the occult or the unexplained, found the material rubbish against their modern case in need of evidence and forensics.
Fortunately, in my subsequent studies and adventures, I have found that truth is indeed stranger than fiction. You must forgive me the cliché, but my analysis and preservation of these personal antiquities has brought me to new heights of bizarrity, both on the page and in the flesh.  I thought I was a wise, aware professor knowing beyond the day-to-day world before I came to read of this twisted Vampire Family.   My pride was in err. 
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.  
The fire that brought these texts into my possession was education blessing enough-the lifetime epitome of Tut and Troy to most scholars.  Some library men would be content to sit behind their musky parchments and read the decades away.  I, however, have had the unique privilege of authenticating these documents as truth.  Of course, that wasn’t until many years later; when Theodore arrived at my office door looking as young as the day we first met.  On the plane to Philadelphia, I never suspected I would arrive at the doorstep of sisters Samantha and Victoria Welshire.  I had read over five hundred years of their tall tales; yet here the startling beauties were, living and breathing before me fangs and all.  Only then did I begin to realize the full extent of this familial coven.  
The academic community may disagree with my claims; but this dark, sensational and unbelievable underground lifestyle has afforded me considerable gains.  Today I live a quiet life among the Welshires, and their vast knowledge of history and the world has blessed me intellectually as well as financially.  In this simple, ignorant time obsessed with youthfulness and beauty, I’ve seen immortal creatures age, know love, feel pain-even die and regain their humanity.  I myself have been able to change; embracing surgeries and procedures I would not have considered before coming to know the Welshires.  With no evil or nefarious means, this vampire knowledge and power has made me a new man inside out.  It’s something I could never have fathomed before these burned books first came my way..... 

 Shop Love: Ann and the Viking, the debut title in the FATE and FANGS: Tales from the Vampire Family series from Muse It Up Publishing!  $2.50, all ebook formats.  How Awesome, really?
