Busy, fun weekend!

Standard

Hey all!

Hope your weekend was as fun as mine!

Friday night, I was on a radio blog show with my fantastic publishers, JEA Press. Catt Dahman and Scott Essel Pratt were my interviewers, and I gave psychic readings as well! We had a blast and I do plan on going on again (If they’ll have me – after all, I may have scared them off with my ‘readings’!). If you get the chance, tune in to ‘Wicked Little Things’ on Friday nights! The authors and guest talkers are great and Catt and Scott do a bang up job as interviewers!

I spent Saturday at the October Sky Festival, held in Oliver Springs, TN where the movie, “October Sky” was actually filmed! Had a book signing there along with the Arts Council of Roane County and met some really great people! They had a living history group there, and I’m hoping that next year I’ll be able to walk around a bit more and see a lot more of the festival than I was able to this time.

Sunday was the day I prepared for my upcoming time with the Blood Moon Rising 2 Event! I will be on this Facebook event on Thursday, the 22nd. Check it out! There have been some fantastic authors/writers on so far and this is an all month event!  Sam Gregory is our wonderful hostess and creator/planner. Many thanks, Sam, for putting this great Bloody event together!

I read a great little anthology this weekend, too. The book is titled, “Darkness Brewing,” and it has thirteen great little tales from the Coffee House Writers Group. Some of the authors showcased in hear are: Roma Gray, Mark Harrington, Alexandra Lander, and Edward Owen, to name a few. Pick up a copy and leave a review. I found all of the stories well done and of great variety.

Well, I hear my coffee calling, so I best be on the way. Give yourselves a treat this October and read an author that you haven’t had the chance to check out before, then tell us about him/her. Have a good week y’all, and especially during this month – stay scared!  😉

Lol. To view it or order my book at Amazon click on this link, then click on the version you prefer: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B015TBKKR2 For those who are interested or curious, here is a sample: Saint Vampire Published by S.H. Bown © 2015 by S.H. Bown ALL RIGHTS RESERVED ISBN: 978-1-4951-7425-4 Saint Vampire by S.H. Bown INTRODUCTION Every human being on the face of the earth has a story to tell. And so does every monster. This is my story. My gift to you. My special warning. I tell you this story because I can. Because I am compelled to. I vomit forth these words as an explanation of my damned existence. I must write to cleanse my soul. It is a warning to you all because this fate of mine could easily become your own, if any of you foolishly choose to ignore my words. Dear, dear, reader, please take heed and beware of the choices life offers you. Choices have consequences. And certain choices have consequences that chew at your soul from the inside-out, abrading it into dry nothingness. Nothingness that can be blown away with the slightest puff of air, replacing your humanity with an empty hole that never fills. For The Lord’s sake, and by all that is holy, please, please hold and think before you choose your course! Then be sure to choose wisely or your fate could be mine. And these words could be your words. And the hellish pain of my existence, your existence. And my story, your story. And my warning a gift that comes….too late. PROLOGUE Marcus held the voluptuous woman with ease, supporting her weight effortlessly with a single arm positioned across her upper back. She was unconscious and vulnerable. The struggle left her clothing in tattered shreds. The remaining scraps were wet from the rain, clinging to her torso in a flimsy effort of modesty. Fainting at the sight of him and those with whom he had just fought to gain her freedom, the woman remained limp in his arms. Looking down at her exposed flesh, Marcus experienced hunger, passion, and pain. His eyes roamed over her supple form. All of his senses were focused on her heartbeat. He felt and heard its pulsing rhythm. He wanted to stop listening and looking, but he could not. The musky intoxicating scent of her sex filled his nostrils electrifying his male instincts. His arm automatically moved her closer towards his chest. He felt her warmth and the hot undulating blood flowing through her veins, urging him to possess her, ravage her, and taste her all at the same time until he had had his fill. The desire to feast and to plunge himself into her were both overwhelming. Even more intense was the ache buried deep within his immortal soul to bond with a warm-blooded woman as he had in the days before his changing. Marcus dipped his head towards her breasts and inhaled deeply. Her breasts were round firm swells pointing their tips up towards him as her head lulled backwards on her shoulders. He could see her nubs surrounded by their small coral circles through the light blue sheer lace of her undergarments. She was braless beneath the sheerness. Sweet Mother of God he longed for his past and his mortality. He lifted his head skyward looking towards the Kingdom of the Lord. “Please, Dear Lord, give me the strength of character to continue on this path to which you have called me. Help me to persevere and remain faithful to Your Will, to do Your Work in Your Time, and set aside my own wilfulness.” It was a heartfelt prayer for help, and it was answered almost immediately by The Lord, with an overwhelming calmness that touched Marcus’s soul. Unusual circumstances, indeed, when you consider that the one doing the praying was a vampire. CHAPTER 1 PAST Friar Phillip was a curious young monk. Nothing had changed over the centuries for the men who followed his order of the priesthood as they remained ferreted away in their medieval monastery. He was a good monk and a good man. His calling was sincere as was his faith. At a very young age he knew what his purpose in life was to be. While sitting in church with his family worshipping the Lord, Phillip saw something that no other member of the congregation could see. To the amazement of the parishioners, young Phillip went into a dreamlike trance in the middle of the Sunday worship services. In the pew where he knelt with his family the eight year old boy jumped to his feet standing straight and stiff, then he pointed to a space just above the pulpit and shouted, “Look, look! It’s an Angel! I see an Angel!” The rest of the parishioners followed up with their own eyes to where young Phillip’s hand pointed, and looked as he had commanded them to do. And what they saw was — nothing! Even the old priest turned to look up above his own head to where Phillip was pointing. “What is it you see?” Phillip’s mother asked. “This best not be a prank or I’ll make you sorry, boy!” His father proclaimed. “What are you about boy? What is it you’re doing?” The old priest asked. Saint Vampire “Every human being on the face of the earth has a story to tell. And so does every monster. This is my story. My gift to you. My special warning…….” So starts the SAINT VAMPIRE legend. A story that spans history, as the forces of heaven and… AMAZON.COM
