Vampires of the World Weekend Part 2

Halloween is over but Vampires are always in season! Check out these excerpts from the Vampires of the World bundle.

My flesh ignited with the sweetness of the drink, the sweetness and the saltiness and the pure, tawny wholeness of it.  I could feel the rough ridges where my pantyhose had run as I stumbled through the hallway — when was it?  A lifetime ago?  I could feel a hangnail on my right thumb, sense it tingle before it closed itself up, before it disappeared.

And I could feel the mangled mess beneath my jaw.  My torn vein was weaving itself together, knitting itself back to health.  The flow of blood was restored beneath my skin, and the smooth stretch of my neck was new again.

With the healing came full awareness.  Full comprehension.  I knew that I was on a leather sofa.  That I was cradled against a body.  Arms were wrapped around me, holding me close, spoon fashion.  My face was pressed against one of those arms, against a smooth, muscular wrist…

Where do you live and write from?

I live in my native Appalachian Mountains in Virginia, though I grew up and have lived all over the place. Our house is at the end of a long dirt road on 250 forested acres, with dogs, cats, and wildlife my husband Jason Adams and I are better off not knowing too much about.

Why do you write?

The truest answer is so I can find out what happens. Once a what if… takes root in my mind, some part of me can’t rest until I know how it turns out. It really is a turbocharged form of reading.

When did you start writing?

I remember telling myself elaborate stories when I was…

Live Writes at the Bistro

Image may contain: night and text

Tonight the Live Write fun starts at the Bistro – and Jonathan Harvey and I will be on at 9pm Central/10pm Eastern for our hour!

What is a live write? It’s where two authors take turns writing a very short story LIVE. The twist? We’re given an image to base our story off of AND a mystery genre. That’s right – we may not be writing humor OR vampires. We might get romance, post apocalyptic, sci-fi, or even noir!

So join us on Facebook and see what weirdness we come up with!

Look forward to seeing you there!

Ahab’s Daughter available for pre-order!

AhabsDaughte2

Ahab’s Daughter by the talented Ron Vitale is now available for pre-order! Not only does it have an awesome cover, but it sounds good, too!

Ever wonder what happened after Herman Melville’s classic Moby Dick?
Captain Ahab’s daughter refuses to let her brother be lost to the sea’s call and the mysteries of their father’s stories.
Determined, Morgan tracks down Ishmael and convinces him to help her on a quest to find and bring back her brother who searches for the fabled island of nightmares.
When Morgan and Ishmael are captured by mercenaries far out at sea, they convince their captors to head to the island of nightmares where there are rumored to be riches beyond imagination.
Once on the island, Morgan’s hopes are dashed as members of the crew disappear one by one as the true secret behind the island’s raw natural power is revealed. Can Morgan and the others escape, or is there some darker power trapping them there for its own fearsome purpose? If Morgan has a say, she’ll fight through a labyrinth of horrors to survive, but maybe that won’t be enough…
