I'm nineteen chapters into the sequel to THE TALE OF THE VAMPIRE BRIDE and I am pleased with the story thus far. I just sent off the chapters to my test readers and hope for their feedback soon. I will, of course, keep plugging away at the story, but I really need to have an outside perspective at this point. The plot is a bit more complex than the one in the first novel and Glynis is definitely evolving as a person and vampire. There are a slew of new characters that have entered the story and I'm anxious to see how they are received by the readership.

I am feeling a lot more confident about the book at this point, but I admit I'll be biting my nails until I heard back from the test readers. I promise not to harass them too much.

*fingers crossed*


  1. Thanks for the update! I'm looking forward to the sequel.

  2. I would poke out an eyeball to be one of these test readers!

    Just finished Tales of a Vampire Bride like ten minutes ago and headed straight to the blog to see if work was being done on book two and IT IS!!!!!

    And I must admit, Vlad, TOTALLY want more of him. But the ending was just so... WOW! PERFECT!


  3. Linds,

    Vlad (or as I call him, the asshole) plays a very minor role in the second book. The story is about Lady Glynis Wright and he is a supporting character in her life. But his actions and plotting have a HUGE impact on the story. HUGE.

    The specter if Dracula can never be truly vanquished.


  4. I love how you don't lay down to the cliche, and the said formula of how a book is to be written!

    Thank you for that little 'teaser', and you so totally rock! =)

  5. Linds,

    I don't believe in tropes or cliches. I try to write the story as honestly and faithfully to the vision in my head. Nothing about Glynis is conventional and I don't think her story should be either.


    P.S. Feel free to join THE TALE OF THE VAMPIRE BRIDE facebook. I'm going to try to keep it updated.
