I had planned on releasing a special short story on Christmas Day for all my readers. The original idea had been to release it on Smashwords for free, in order for everyone to take advantage of their new Nooks, Kindles, I-Pads, etc. However due to all a heavy last minute cram everything into the last few weeks of the semester at my university, I never got to do a cover and several other things needed before the story could go up on Smashwords.
So instead, I’ve been releasing the story in chapters on my other blog “The Vampyre Blogs – Special Edition”.
What makes this story so special is that it involves not only my vampyre character Nathaniel, but several other familiar faces faces from my first published novel “The Bridge”. I set the story sixteen years in the past so as not to conflict with that took place in “The Bridge”.
I’ll continue to release more chapters each day up until Christmas where the story will reach its climax. Depending on the response I get, I hope to do the same thing next year with a brand new story.
At the same time, I’ll be releasing the current story in its entirety for Kindle, Nook, and other e-books with but with an original artwork cover, proper editing, and possibly some illustrations (fingers crossed).
In the meantime, let the holiday reading begin. I’m providing links to Parts I and II just below. Tomorrow I’ll post the link for part III and so on until Christmas day. I hope you all take advantage and enjoy the story. Please leave feedback here or over at “The Vampyre Blogs – Private Edition”.so I know what you all thought of the story and your opinions on my releasing it installments.
