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.

MY NEW INTERVIEW!!! plus TIPS ON SELLING YOUR FICTION ARTICLE!!!

Happy Friday everyone!

That sounds a lot better than Happy Monday doesn’t it? 🙂

Well, we had a 70 degree day here in Maryland the other day and it was just enough to tease me and make me want summer even more! But it was nice to be out and about and not have to worry about putting on layers of coats! I even washed my hair on the back porch with the garden hose! Yes, yes, I guess I am a country girl at heart!

Hope you all enjoy your week and thanks for stopping by to say hello! 🙂

~RECENT HAPPENINGS~

I was recently interviewed by Lori Moore, the author of  From Zero to Christian in Just 35 Years, Missing Andy:  The Journey From Grief to Joy and Grady the Gray Cat.

It was a lot of fun and Lori is a really nice girl with some awesome books to read. In fact, Lori will be featured here on my blog in the next few weeks as an Author of the Week!

Here is my interview:

 http://www.loriamooreonline.com/blog/2012/02/02/An-Interview-with-Author-Lisa-V-Proulx.aspx

Also, look for me on April 2 when I will be the Author of the Week on Full Moon Bites! More on that later…

~AUTHOR OF THE WEEK~

Currently I have February and March filled but looking for spots for April! It is fun and painless and all you have to do is answer some interview questions of if you’d prefer, write a guest blog. If you are interested and I hope you are, please contact me at any of the sites below.

This Sunday I will be hosting author Christine Cunningham…so be sure to stop by and meet this talented author…

NEW BLOG DESIGN COMING SOON!!!

I have been doing a lot of thinking lately and decided to jazz up my blog a bit! I love the pink and the stars but want something else to really make my site pop!

I found some cool ideas and I am now in the process of learning more about the tech side of things. But look for a new design in the next few days. I think you will like the one I picked out!

~WHAT I AM WORKING ON~

I am getting ready to work on my next book. It starts off in 1800’s London and is about a child who is abducted from her family by her father’s stable hand. He is obsessed with the young girl and his twisted love for the child plunges her into a dark underworld that holds no escape for her.

Can you guess what’s coming next? If you know my books, you will know..

I am still in search of a title which is strange because that is usually the first thing that pops into my head when I think about writing another story.

~WHAT I AM READING~

I love to read and would love to have more time for it but I squeeze it in where I can. I feel that in order to be a good writer, a person must enjoy reading.

But the book that I am reading now is by Anne Rice who says (many times) in the book that she was never a very good reader. So, I guess there is hope for those of you out there who follow in her footsteps.

Her book, “CALLED OUT OF DARKNESS~A Spiritual Confession”, is her journey from growing up a good and obedient Catholic girl, to becoming an atheist, then at 57 years old, coming back to her faith.

 It is a haunting memoir of her life growing up in New Orleans and how life can sometimes change your perception of what is faith and what if one day everything you believe in goes away.

Came across this cool article in Writer’s Digest that I thought you might enjoy. It’s called “Tips to Make Selling Yor Fiction a Reality!”

FROM SELF~PUBLISHING TO AGENTED AUTHOR…AWESOME ARTICLE!!!

Hi Everyone!

Well, it was in the 60’s today here in Maryland, not bad for a January day! I took Kurgan and Harley out and played ball with them in the back yard. We had a blast!

I came across another cool article that I really enjoyed and I wanted to share it with you. It gave me a lot of hope as a self~published author and I hope it helps you too.

It’s called From “Self-Published Success to Agented Author.” Check it out!

http://www.writersdigest.com/editor-blogs/guide-to-literary-agents/from-self-published-success-to-agented-author?et_mid=531839&rid=3095933

I watched the movie “DEVIL”  last night which is about five people who get trapped in an elevator and soon discover, to their horror, that one of them is the devil! Ouch! It had some scary scenes that had me putting the covers over my eyes. Yes, yes, even though I write that stuff, I still get freaked out. If I don’t write it, I have no control over it! That’s why my characters don’t scare me, well sometimes they do but I tell them to cool it and they usually listen since they need me to tell their story! 🙂

AUTHOR INTERVIEW/GUEST BLOGS

February and March are totally filled now and I am looking for authors for April. Man, the year is going by so fast it seems. If you are interested, please see my contact info below.

MONTHLY CONTEST

It’s almost time to open up my monthly contest starting in February! Every month I will be giving away a FREE copy of one of my books, your choice.

The choices are (these will be repeated later)

THE RAINBOW WON’T WAIT

A dying mother’s advice for the obstinate daughter she is leaving behind.

When the author lost her mother in 2006, she could have been a better daughter. She tried to be the daughter that her mother wanted and needed at this time of sorrow but she didn’t know how to be that person.

In a collection of short pieces of advice, the author has put together words of comfort and wisdom that her Cherokee mother gave her over the years. She never knew at the time, that this advice would help her as she took care of a dying parent. It also served as a catalyst to help her regain her footing after a series of tragedies following her mother’s death, left her in a crippling, suicidal depression for three years.

A story of hope, inspiration and how a briar of a child became the flower that her mother always dreamed of…but died before she got a chance to see her bloom.

PUNCTURE

PUNCTURE

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? 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…

DRAGGED INTO DARKNESS

 

An abusive husband kills his wife then dies in prison and is sent to Hell. After making a deal with the devil, he must go through seven levels of Heaven to retrieve her and bring Satan back her soul. But the trip up to Heaven is not so easy for this murderer who is entangled in a business arrangement with the devil. The agreement involves two road maps, one to Heaven and one back down to Hell, bribing angels, being conned by demons, facing karmic debt and searching his way through a paradise where he is not welcome to find his dead wife and ruin her peaceful eternity.

BENEATH THE BATTLEFIELD

 

 A civil war ghost story about a young soldier describing the horrors of war in letters to his mother back home. After fighting in the battle of Antietam, his life is forever changed and he becomes frightened by the changes around him.

KING OF SHADOWS

 

A dark and wispy tale of an angry and vicious man who is hell bent on raising his wayward son even though the man committed suicide and is no longer an earthly being but a demon hidden behind a veil of shadows.

Darien and Lucinda’s son died as an infant. The baby, whose soul was pure, rejected his evil father and his violent ways.

After enduring years of abuse, Lucinda has had enough. After she leaves Darien, she finds him dead from a gunshot wound to the head.

Nine months later she gives birth to another son, a son born of evil and ready and willing to be the child that Darien has longed for.

What follows is a hellish nightmare with a demonic son whose guidance from a long dead father he never knew, makes Lucinda’s life a living hell. A father who committed suicide and now a nobody, a lost soul, hidden behind a veil of shadows.

“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!

INTERVIEW WITH VAMPIRES.COM!!!

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all staying warm wherever you are! Here in Maryland it is freeeeezing! The wind is blowing and howling like a banshee.

I am sitting in my library in front of my wood stove. Kurgan is on his bed at my feet, Steve is due home from work any minute, his daughter Taylor is watching “Burlesque” for the 100th time and life is good!

I wanted to share my latest interview with you. I was recently interviewed by Moonlight at Vampires.com.

Enjoy!

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

                Can you tell us a little about your book Puncture?

                Puncture is the hauntingly beautiful tale of 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? 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…

How does Puncture differ from other novels about vampires?

Because it really masks a story of domestic abuse. If you think about it, every woman knows a man like Victor. An emotional vampire who sucks the life out of you. Puncture deals with the very real issue of a woman who is so in love with a man that she is willing to trade her life for hers. In return, he controls her and uses her for his own gain. Many women are living that life right now.

What inspired you to write about vampires?

I had always been drawn to them in books and movies. I had been living with a man who was an emotional vampire and he is the inspiration behind Victor. He made me so angry one night when I thought he was cheating on me, that I chose to write about him rather then to kill him. 🙂

What is one thing you would like people to take away from their experience of reading Puncture?

That it is a story of domestic abuse and when a woman meets a man like Victor, she needs to run like hell. A woman will pick a man based on HER self-esteem. She must be on her own for awhile until she knows who she is, what she will tolerate and what she won’t. When she truly likes herself and can love who she is as a woman, only then, can she find true happiness with a man.

Vampires are often found in romance novels and erotica, why do you think readers find them so sexy?

Because of their power of seduction. Although most women may not admit it, they like the idea of a powerful and beautiful man overtaking them and having their way with them. They enjoy the feeling of getting lost in a man’s arms and the feeling that they are his, even for the moment.

Who’s your favorite fictitious vampire (other than your own)?

I enjoyed Lestat from “Interview with the Vampire” by Anne Rice. I liked the rock star quality he brought to the role; Sexy, arrogant and wicked.

I also like Louis from the same movie. A lost and beautiful soul.

What is your favorite vampire book, movie and/or show?

My favorite vampire book is “Covenant with the Vampire” by my favorite author Jeanne Kalogridis.

Vampire movies that I love are, “The Lost Boys”… “Let Me In”…”Near Dark”

Tell our readers why they should check out your book – in 3 words: (bwahaha)

You’ll LOVE it!

And finally, what other projects are you currently working on? Any goodies we should watch out for?

I write other stories beside horror novels and my next book is actually a non-fiction called “The Rainbow Won’t Wait” which is “a dying mother’s advice to an obstinate daughter she is leaving behind.”

I wrote the book after losing my mother in 2006. It is filled with advice and stories of her life and how her words of wisdom got me through the darkest days of my life. How I spent three years in a crippling suicidal depression and became a better person after I got through the darkness.

I still write horror and my next novel is set back in 1800’s London and is about a child vampire.

Thanks so much for your interest and support!

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

CHARACTER INTERVIEW WITH THE WOMEN’S LITERARY CAFE!!!

Hey everyone!

Hope you are having a great day so far!

Wanted to share some good news with you my friends.

Last month I was interviewed by the WoMen’s Literary Cafe. They asked to do a character interview with Veronica, the female vampire in my horror novel PUNCTURE.

I was happy with how it came out and surprised at some of the things she had to say!

I didn’t know the woman who interviewed her was also a cop…hmmm…I’m glad she left Veronica alone and did not arrest her for the crimes that she is sadly guilty of committing.

Here is the interview…enjoy!!! 🙂
