VAMPIRE NOVEL~PUNCTURE~READ A FREE EXCERPT!!!

Happy Friday night!

Wow, two blogs in one day, no wonder it was 70 degrees here this week! 🙂

I wanted to share with you an excerpt from my vampire novel PUNCTURE.

What is PUNCTURE?

PUNCTURE

PUNCTURE is a hauntingly beautiful tale about vampire love and betrayal between a mortal and an undead.

Craving a taste for the dark side, Veronica gets more than she bargained for when she is seduced by Victor, an evil and dangerous vampire. His obsession with her runs her off the road to Heaven and soon she too will turn her back on righteousness.

Longing to be mortal again and trapped in the darkness of an immortal life, she struggles with knowing right from wrong, Heaven from Hell, and love from hate.

But when she discovers the truth about her dark prince, will it be too late to save her angelic soul? Will her new vampire friend help her destroy the only man she has ever loved? And why is he so willing to help her destroy him?

You will fall in love with the innocent Veronica and her search for love, feel her joy at rekindling an old flame and die with her as the love of her life becomes her murderer.

Victor is a charming but wicked vampire who could compel a corpse on the gallows to speak. We follow him as he preys on Veronica, senses her weakness and watch as he pounces on her and destroys her with just…one…puncture.

Every woman knows a man like Victor

And now for your FREE excerpt:

Although my love for him at one time was beyond words, I had now become repulsed by the very sight of him. I had become remote from sunlight, love and laughter and all the sweetness of life. He had taken these things from me, and after tonight, after my first kill, I knew there was no going back. I was imprisoned by the agony of being cut off from God, which to me, was the true meaning of hell. I envied the saved and the righteous, I wanted to be a part of the living again. I will never, ever forget the look on that woman’s face as I released her from her earthly existence. I will have a long time to remember.

“Why do you fight it so?” Victor said as he rose, his usual sarcasm noticeably softened. “You have had time to adjust, have you not?”

“Adjust?” I shouted. “Adjust to being a killer, a monstrous fiend? I will never forgive you for what you have done to me. I want to awaken from this sleep of death. I want to feel warmth again, to love again, to live!”

“Never is a long time, even for us”, he sighed. “Don’t you realize the gift that I have given you, yes a gift. Let me read you something.” He reached into a drawer and pulled  out a heavy black book. “Here it is…let me see…yes here, listen to this:

But man dies and is laid low; man breathes his last and where is he? As water fails from the lake and a river wastes away and dries up, so man lies down and rises not again.

“Do you recognize those words Veronica? Well, you should. They come from the book that mortals have relied on for centuries to guide them, to fix them. I had those words and others like them shoved down my throat for years…I can still taste them.  I have delivered you from the barren darkness of the grave, from your own private burial mound for the dead and you still refuse to thank me, to see it my way…the only way.”

He threw the book down on the bed. The words Holy Bible stared back up at me as if to shame me for what I have done.

“10 WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR WRITING”…COOL ARTICLE!!!

Happy Monday evening!

All day long I have been thinking it was Tuesday! Well, what’s the old saying, lose a day, lose a friend, gain a day, gain a friend. So I guess I gained a friend somewhere! Hello, where are you? 🙂

Well, I think my car needs an exorcist! Maybe not but there is something strange going on there. I have an awesome purple PT Cruiser that I absolutely love!

I keep it pretty clean, at least it doesn’t look like Steve’s truck and someone lives in there! His excuse? “Honey, it’s a work truck, it’s supposed to be dirty!” 🙂

Today I was driving home and there was the worse smell coming from inside the car! It was putrid and oh so gross and as fast as it came on, it went away. It was not like rotten eggs so I think the catalytic converter might be okay but whatever it was, it was really gross!

Okay, the topic today is not about weird odors in cars but how to improve your writing.  I came across this groovy little article in Writer’s Digest that I wanted to share with you. No matter how good we are at writing 🙂 we could all use some tips.

It’s called “10 WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR WRITING” (While Thinking Like a Comedy Writer)

SO YOU WANT TO WRITE A BOOK? FREE KINDLE eBOOK!

Hi everyone!

Hope you are enjoying your Sunday. It’s nice and sunny here in Maryland but the cold wind is blowing and I am freezing as usual!

I am not a phone person in any way shape or form! I have a cheap old cell phone because I am not really into techno stuff. You know the phone I am talking about, you get it cheap at Wal-Mart and add minutes to it?

Well, this morning I was in the middle of a very important call and I heard the familiar three little beeps…yep…the phone goes out, the minutes are gone and I feel like a total loser!

She emailed me about it and added “lol” but I wasn’t laughing. I was so embarrassed!!!

Anyhoo, I came across a FREE Kindle eBook today that I wanted to share with you. It’s called, “So You Want to Write a Book?” I did not write it nor have I read it but I did download it from Amazon and I am going to take a look at it.

The reviews say it’s very helpful and offers a lot of good writing/publishing/marketing advice.

Check it out! www.amazon.com/You-Want-Write-Book-ebook/dp/B004CRTE8Q/

~BOOK TRAILER NEWS~

Well, I have been looking into book trailers and I think they are pretty neat and I want to do one. So, I am working on one now for my vampire novel PUNCTURE. I have photos of what I imagine the characters to look like and man, they are so close, it is so neat to see my characters come to life.

PUNCTURE the "revamped" version of the original vampire novel that was first released in 2004!!!

I am putting it together and adding some finishing touches and it will be ready to publish very, very soon!

I am learning so much! Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? I am a rock~n~roll 70’s chick who didn’t even know what a blog was until recently now I am making movies! 🙂

~AUTHOR INTERVIEWS/GUEST BLOG~

Still looking for authors to interview for my March blog issue. Guest blogging is cool too if you are more comfortable doing that. February is already filled and March is filling up fast so come on! Drop me a line and let’s both get some exposure and publicity!

MY INTERVIEW WITH SHAH SIGHT from THE INTERPRETER!

Hi everyone!

I wanted to share an interview I had that was given by Shah Sight from The Interpreter: A Literary Group that took place on Saturday January 7.

Shah Sight: Lisa V. Proulx, Thanks for being with us today.

Lisa: Hi and thank you for having me!

Shah: You write Horror, and I must admit that I love horror books and films, why do you think you are interested in writing horror novels?

Lisa: My mom used to take my brother and I to the library every week to see scary movies and I fell in love with Dracula! There was something so dark and …mysterious about this handsome man flying into your window at night, seducing you and making you immortal. Even as a child, I thought it was pretty neat!

Shah: Did you start writing such stories from when you were very young?

Lisa: I started writing horror when I was about 8 years old.

Shah: Did you imagine a lot of horror scenes in your head, or is it something else?

Lisa: They just come to me, it can be from any source. I can drive down the highway and see a bird flying overhead and I can make a scary story out of it.

Shah: Describe one imaginary and scary scene that would make your heart pound out of horror?

Lisa: What scares me? People coming back from the dead.  People going insane, that sort of thing.

Shah: Please tell us about your horror stories, I am already excited and there is a thrill in my heart already, and I am sure it will be the same for those who will follow this interview!

Lisa: My stories are all usually based around good vs evil with a strong female character.  My latest release is the vampire novel, PUNCTURE. I write Horror, Paranormal Romance and Ghost stories. I love writing about vampires and witches and love to scare people with my writing!

Shah: Where can we buy your books, give us a link please?

Lisa: My books can be found on Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble and many other sites. My author profile is https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/lisavproulx and my FaceBook Fan Page is https://www.facebook.com/pages/Lisa-V-Proulx-Author-Fan-Page/223212131077410
Thank you again for interviewing me! I appreciate all of your support! : )

Shah:  We thank lovely Lisa V. Proulx for taking part in our interview, hope to talk to her again!

You can find Shah’s site on FaceBook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/160298634071734/173417486093182/

INTRODUCING KURGAN!!!

Hi everyone and welcome to January 10th. Well, at least I think that’s what day it is! I’ve been so busy I don’t even know what day it is on some days.

Now ask me who the president is and I might say Abe Lincoln!

I want to introduce you to a VERY important person in my life…KURGAN!

Victor Kurgan is my 13 year old pure bred Rottweiler and my inspiration for life and love.

He has been with me since he was 10 weeks old and has kept me alive in this crazy world. He celebrated his 13th birthday on October 18th!

I wanted you to meet him since he plays an important role in my vampire novel PUNCTURE.

My character Victor is named after him!

Kurgan is one of two vampiric dogs that Veronica has to guard her at night while she slumbers in death. They are also vampires who thirst for blood and help Veronica bring down any human in her way.

They hunt with her at night and never, ever leave her side. They are immortal, loyal and forever faithful to her. Can she say the same about her love Victor?

Kurgan and Lucy are the two dogs in PUNCTURE and in life they were quite a team.

Both pure bred Rottweilers, I lost Lucy in 2005. I will never forget her and wanted to immortalize her in my book so she can live forever on my pages as she does in my heart.

Lisa and The Kurgan

Check out my author profile on Smashwords https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/lisavproulx where you can purchase PUNCTURE…
 
Or you can purchase PUNCTURE on Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble Nook and many other sites!
 
Thank you for your continued love and support! Kurgan thanks you too! 🙂
