Ten Days to Will, Day 9

Dear Readers:

First a special shout out for all those who sent birthday wishes and to those who managed to tune in for my guest spot on Talk of the Tavern. 

So back to Will…
“Svetlana Red and the Chevaliers” was released on October 28, 2014.

In this story, Will recalls the horrors of World War II and how the undead deal with the inhumanity:

“I’d never liked conflict, especially the political variety. I’d seen societies, governments, and kingdoms rise and fall around me. Wars are great opportunities to feed; they draw a lot of undead. Conflict spills a lot of blood, but most of my kind tends to profit off the losses, not the gains, of those overthrowing each other. But World War II was on a whole different level. No human or undead had ever experienced anything like it.”

For the cover image, a friend, wanting to be known only as Simone, posed as “Svetlana” for another one of the “eye” covers.


When the collection “The First Ten Bites” arrives, the shorts will be gone forever. They are $.99 until then. You can find “Svetlana” here:

Again for each day, for ten days, I’m reintroducing Will and preparing for the arrival of “The First Ten Bites”. Enjoy, and share.

Day 8

Dear Readers:
“Everyone Looks Better Undead” was released on February 13, 2014. Will becomes caught between an old and a new possible love as both a vampire and lycan are on the loose. Will witnesses the transformation of the lycan first hand. The change is mighty:

“Hairs were starting to explode from his skin. His face contorted while I heard his heart blowing up in my head.”

I did another cover, again as “Anna” for “Everyone Looks Better Undead”:

Ten Days to Will, Day 7

Dear Readers:
“Do You Hear My Heart Beating?” was released on December 13, 2013. In this volume, we see the effect of the living on the undead. Will falls for a vivacious exotic dancer. But their lives become tangled in a snow storm and a flurry of accidents that bring a new female into Will’s life:

“The lovely smell was overpowering. I turned to see Dr. Caroline Quinn enter. It was like the heavens opened…”

As for the cover, it is another of the “chest” covers, when I had to pose as a character that is not like me in the least, lol. Here I’m “Evelyn” in “Can You Hear My Heart Beating?”

 

When the collection “The First Ten Bites” arrives, the shorts will be gone forever. They are $.99 until then. You can find “Can” here:

Again for each day, for ten days, I’m reintroducing Will and preparing for the arrival of “The First Ten Bites”. Enjoy, and share.

Ten Days to Will, Day 6

Dear Readers:

Quick thank you to all who sent along birthday wishes. I’m grateful to be around another year and to be able to share my work with you.

“Thirty-Three Forever” was released on November 26, 2013. It’s the story of Will’s transition into a vampire and Janey, a woman with a life-threatening cancer. Will makes and offers incredible life choices:

“When you are about to tell someone your deepest secret and offer them a sort of eternal life, things can horribly wrong. There’s the stunned expression, denial, accusations of insanity, and sometimes acceptance.”

This is the second “eye” cover, but the eyes belong to model Patrick Renfrow, as “Will” for “Thirty-Three Forever”:


When the collection “The First Ten Bites” arrives, the shorts will be gone forever. They are $.99 until then. You can find “Thirty-three Forever” here:

Ten Days to Will, Day 5

Dear Readers:
“Creating Anna” was released on July 2, 2013. I created Anna to be such a cool character that I think she deserves her own spin off series. But back to Will:

The reader sees a full spectrum of Will’s emotion, from anger to heartbreak, love and loss, especially when it comes to the ladies:

“I’d been a hellion in my younger years, even before I had been turned. I had been with women of all kinds. I reveled in their beauty, their wealth, and passions. I hurt some of them badly; I was quite the cad. I took other men’s wives, girlfriends, daughters, and even someone’s mother. I had bedded some, devoured some, and sometimes did both without care or responsibility.

Despite my wicked ways, I had redeemed myself through one human. A woman, who would become one of the most valiant and honorable vampires known on this planet; I had sired Anna.”
This is the first of the “eye” covers, as believing that the “eyes are the windows to the soul”. Me as Anna for “Creating Anna”. 


When the collection “The First Ten Bites” arrives, the shorts will be gone forever. They are $.99 until then. You can find “Creating Anna” here:

Ten Days to Will, Day 4

Dear Readers:

“Mabel” was released on June 27, 2013.

Mabel is a lonely woman caught in the world of the 1930’s dustbowl recovering Kansas.  It is by far, the most tender side of Will you will see:

From Mabel-

“Hey why don’t we dance a bit?” I joked and hummed some odd tune. I pulled her gently around the parlor. We sashayed and I even dipper her. She giggled like a school girl. And suddenly…I was taken aback and froze. The pause didn’t go unnoticed and she quickly withdrew with a mumbled “I’m sorry.” She plopped onto the couch and started to cry.

Mabel had been so deprived of the good things in life. I felt suddenly responsible to give some hope to her. Then just as quickly, I felt guilty for leading her on. I have never been with a woman as old as she, but I did oddly wonder what it would be like.”

As for the cover, for the first time in a while, I posed to not be “pretty”. I felt that to be fair and representative of the tale, that the cover should show mainly the locket that bring the story full circle:


When the collection “The First Ten Bites” arrives, the shorts will be gone forever. They are $.99 until then. You can find “Mabel” here:

Again for each day, for ten days, I’m reintroducing Will and preparing for the arrival of “The First Ten Bites”. Enjoy, and share.

Ten Days to Will, Day 3 

Dear Readers:
“Esme/Tiffany” was released on June 22, 2013. In this story, Will tells of his dark past in the courts at Versailles.

I wrote this series in first person so that the reader could get a sense of Will’s frustration, desire, and every emotion in between. His desecent into a temporary madness changes him forever:

“The fear in her eyes was astonishing. In all of my few hundred years as an undead, I had never seen anyone so horrified.”

This story is probably the most visceral and violent of the collection. But it changes Will, for good. 

I would like to note here that I don’t use violence in a precarious fashion. It is always has a purpose, whether to explain a character’s reasoning or a catalyst for action. With the recent natural disasters world wide, the bombings in London, and the horrific shooting in Las Vegas, I hope and pray for peace for our world. That these events spur us to help others and to make us better citizens of our planet. 

For this cover, I used a pre-existing photo from another project and cropped it down for “Esme” for “Esme/Tiffany”. 


When the collection “The First Ten Bites” arrives, the shorts will be gone forever. They are $.99 until then. You can find “Esme/Tiffany” here:

Again for each day, for ten days, I’m reintroducing Will and preparing for the arrival of “The First Ten Bites”. Enjoy, and share.
