What is Next For Lady Glynis Wright? And for me?

I received this comment today on a previous post for The Tale of the Vampire Bride.

Hi, I'm a French student of English and I'd just like to say thank you for writing such an amazing book ! "The Tale of the Vampire Bride" is definitely the best novel I've read in the last few years. Lady Glynis Wright is a smart and endearing heroine, and I felt so connected to her that I would actually cry everytime someone she loved died. I read this book a month ago, but I'm still obsessed with it ! Are you planning to write a sequel ?
I was going to write an answer in the comments, then realized it could be missed.

The answer is that my agent is currently reading both of my vampire novels and then we will discuss whether or not to pitch them to publishers. Though The Tale of the Vampire Bride has a home currently with The Library of Horror Press, Dr. Pus is more than willing to let me shop the book to a bigger house. But we'll see what my agent thinks.

Even if TotVB does not move onto a bigger house, I will still write the sequel to the novel. It is tentatively named The Vengeance of the Vampire Bride and takes place immediately after the events in the first book.

Now, the question is when will I be able to write it! UGH! Like most writers, I have a full time job and I have to write at night or on the weekends.

The books I have tentatively slated to write in the next 18 months:

  • Pretty When She Kills
  • The Last Bastion of the Living (futuristic zombie tale)
  • The Vengeance of the Vampire Bride
  • Untitled Post Apocalyptic novel


  1. Thanks for answering so quickly ! It must be hard to work on several books at the same time, especially when you have a job besides writing.

    I am very curious to see what Glynis' vengeance will be ! In the meanwhile, I will re-read the first book. Good luck with your writing, and thanks again for the rapid answer !

  2. waiting....waiting.....

  3. I first discovered you on scribd and I love your novels! You have such a unique voice and raw, yet elegant way with language. Not only do I get a great story, but I get unforgettable characters and a classy handle on the English language as well. I don't usually buy paperbacks, but I had to order the first in each of these series below from createspace as a papaerback, because they had to be added to my library of favorites!

    1 The Tale of the Vampire Bride
    1 As The World Dies: The First Days
    1 Pretty When She Dies

    I really hope to see Pretty When She Dies as a movie. You have an amazing talent and I don't even like horror:)

  4. Cherylinh, thanks for your support of the vampire novels. It means a lot to me. I love The Tale of the Vampire Bride and it always excites me when a reader shares my passion for the story.

    As for what Glynis is up to...well...
    she does have a tendency to make plans then toss them out as impulse hits her. So, it is a lot of fun writing about her.

    Felicia, be nice!

    Ami, thanks for you kind words. I'm always happy when someone tells me they love my books even though they're not huge horror fans. I hope you continue to enjoy my writing.
