I’m not sure if any of you have heard, but I’ve recently been gaining a lot of attention for my newest series of books. I’m not really the Ann Rice type, but for some reason, I’ve had good creative success in writing a handful of Vampire teenage love stories. Or the Rovamps section at Barnes & Noble if you will.
The Scifi Network has already payed for, and begun filming the first book, in a straight to TV/DVD format. But there is already talk of filming the next novel!
So I thought it would be fun to share some quotes with you from the books.
“Brenda had seen him around the school, standing up against walls, or sitting in the corner of the cafeteria, just watching people go by. He had even made eye contact with Brenda a couple times; or maybe it could have been his one lazy eye. Regardless, she found him extremely attractive. He was so dark and dreamy, yet full of raw teenage angst. His vintage clothes gave him a very Indie look, but his pale features, and dark lock of flowing hair also made him look like a Hot Topic employee. Brenda couldn’t control herself. What man could be of both the Indie and Emo world? Brenda knew who; a total hunk-muffin” – That Part of The Day Immediately Following Sunset, Chapter 3
“…”Yes Brenda, I’m a vampire” said Edwin. Brenda’s face drained white with shock, almost as white as Edwin’s. “Vampire’s are real. Just like Werewolves, Frankensteins, or Crab-People…” – That Part of The Day Immediately Following Sunset, Chapter 8
“Have you ever imagined what it would be like to be famous, or be in a movie?” mused Brenda. Edwin sat and thought on this for a moment. “Yeah, I have a little bit. It would be great. They would make multiple movies, chronicling my life. There would even be a vast empire of extremely modern, but mostly inexpensive merchandise.” This idea gave Brenda the shivers, but Edwin continued. “There would be these awesome wall posters of me for like $19.99 plus tax that you could get at all nearby Target’s, Forever 21’s and Hot Topics. And I’m pretty sure there would be these really kick ass movie soundtracks with bands like Paramore and some other currently popular bands for the really low price of $15.99 plus tax at Rasputin, or Target.” This idea was too much for Brenda. She knew that with such poetic ranting, Edwin had to be the Vampire for her. Any person with such scope, vision, and abs, had to be the one she was in love with” – That Part of The Day Immediately Following Sunset, Chapter 15
“Brenda cradled Edwin’s head in her arms, and slowly began to stroke his flowing mane of James Dean-esque hair. “Brenda?” said Edwin in a very sexy soft voice that was like…super sexy and soft. “Yes my dearest?”. Edwin paused, and then stared deep into Brenda’s soul. “Of all the hundreds and thousands of years that I’ve been alive on this earth, out of all the girls I’ve met, and been in love with, and the couple that I’ve turned into Vampires, I’m pretty sure that I love you the most, and that I’m the most in love with you. I really mean that.” It was the sweetest thing any Vampire or Human had ever said to Bella. She had really low self esteem anyways. – The Part of The Day Immediately Following Sunset, Chapter 20
And now, moving on to some highlights from the second book, being turned into a movie as well.
“Unhand Bella…I mean Brenda!” fumbled Edwin, in a phrase that almost cost the Author a lawsuit. the Evil Lord Vampire Mephistophosoleze laughed with the cold iron lungs of an evil Lord Vampire. “Bella..I mean Brenda is mine now, and there is nothing you can do to stop me!” With that, Edwin then drove a stake through Mephistophozoleze’s heart. With a shriek, he fell backwards over the railing, clutching at the protruding piece of wood. “I regret noooottththhhhiinnnggggg..
….”His voice trailed off into the darkness, and with that, he disappeared deep below into the Wendy’s trash compactor. – Gibbous Moon, Chapter 5
Well, I hope you enjoyed what you read. I’d also like to remind you that you can catch my movie at 3am, next Sunday night on the Scifi network, and can probably pick up the collectors edition of the full series for $9.99 in paperback from most Barnes & Nobles, and most Arby’s kids meals.
Till we meet again,
