It's here! It's here! 

Now that we got all that Love out of the way in the first episode of my new vampire series at the Muse, Fate and Fangs: Tales from the Vampire Family ;0) it's time for some good old fashioned pain, suffering, and torment!  Who is with me?

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?

Pick up your copy- in ebook formats or kindle- of Punishment: Lilith's Trials for the sweet serial price of 99 cents!

Join the 'Punishment Party' hehe at any of your preferred locations.

As we're a 7 book series with the Muse, it might be easier to use the fancy likes, rss feeds, and things like that to follow us.  No need for anyone to miss out on any of our contests and freebies!  I just posted a post-Hurricane contest on our facebook page and have to email the winners some pdf prizes!

So, out of curiosity, which would you choose? Love or Punishment? Need a sample?

“You can’t do this to me.  You need me!”

Despite her fair hair and white garb, her voice was ugly, cold, and black as her heart, which was itself equal to the dark void beyond her captive light.  Unfortunately, Lilith still did not yet know her boundaries.  Not that it mattered.  Give me another reason to continue her suffering thus!  Though tempted to remove her biting cries forever, I only briefly smote down her banshee voice.  In one blue flash, her next words were silent.  Her mouth moved, and moved forcefully.  Her putrid eyes bulged and her skeletal neck flexed with screams that reached no ears in the void or anywhere hence.  Again, it was only a moment or two that I pained Lilith so; but a great deal of hours also passed between our place and yours.  She felt them both—the instantaneous agony of short, clipping pain as well as the long, torturous suffering.  Both then, was my delight fleeting and long yet gratifying......
