A Vampyre's Daughter

**(3 chapter sample) Von:
A Vampyre's Daughter

A troubled Army vet wishes he were dead...

A lonely vampyre wishes she were human...

And a ruthless drug lord wishes he were immortal...

 

After a failed suicidal mission to destroy an opium kingpin’s yacht, Army vet, Brandt Dekker, is shipwrecked on a desolate island.  He is initially happy to be alive -- until his haunting memories return.

A stunning, yet awkward, girl named Lia has been caring for him, along with her mysterious and frightening father. They seem merely eccentric at first, until an astonishing truth surfaces: Lia has fangs. Real serpent-like fangs. She confesses to be a vampyre and yet promises no harm to Brandt.

 

Panicking, Brandt tries to escape the island, but the only possibility is an ancient derelict boat that has no motor or sails. There is nowhere on the small island to hide. He must come to grips with his new neighbors, and find a way to become allies if they are all to survive. Because, there are real monsters hunting Brandt. Monsters with guns and explosives rather than fangs or claws. Assassins who will find this island and kill anyone in their path to get to Brandt.

 

With help from Lia to repair the boat, Brandt pledges to set sail and lure the assassins away. But the repair takes days. And as each day passes, Brandt finds himself more and more enchanted by the sweet and gentle woman who claims to be a benevolent vampyre. He doesn't believe he deserves love and happiness, but could they possibly lie in this enchanting girl's embrace?

 

Her past has imprisoned her on the island, and his has imprisoned his soul, and both of their worst fears come back to threaten their newfound hope together. Brandt had been willing to sacrifice his life for a chance at redemption against his enemies, until he came to the island.  Now there is more at stake than he is willing to sacrifice. In a battle to save their lives, Brandt will also fight for his soul against a terrifying enemy that is more powerful than he could have ever imagined.

Greetings. I was busy between backlashes in real life, and first audiobook self-productions.

Thanks, for the BETA version. I hope I soon find the luxury of leaning back, smoking a cigarillo and reading, at least, some of the new chapters!

Hey Jeff, thanks for the friend request. I'm new here - as of yesterday - so was nice to be greeted early on. Your novel: A Vampyre's Daughter, looks very interesting, as is the theme, so I'll be having a read of it soon, and leaving my feedback. Take care, Joe.

Glad to make your acquaintance.
Feel free to read with or without feedback. :)
There's lots of cool stories here. I enjoy Judy Colella's work, myself.
There's a lot of readers here, too, so hopefully your book will get a bunch of views.

Hey Jeff... so I'm currently on page 34 of your book and will be continuing with the rest of it soon. I don't want to give any spoilers to anyone reading this comment, but I will say I'm loving the Brandt and Lia characters so far, and your introduction to the story and pace are... mehr anzeigen

While the querying process continues, I decided to share the full version as a "Beta" read. Free to read.
**For those who read the 6 chapter "sample" already -- this is the FULL version with all 35 chapters.
Available for a limited time while I sort out the publishing search.
Enjoy!

If it helps, there's a touch of sex about 2/3rds through. Long way to get to it, but... ;)

I don't mean to blame you, on the contrary! Do more hype and promo, like using hashtags like #freebie #ebook #giveaway #specialoffer on platforms like Twitter, Instagram, and Reddit ?

For anyone who wants to read the whole book, and not just the sample, contact me directly and I'll be glad to send your the whole thing in whatever format you like, free.
I can't publish it here while I'm querying the book, but I'd love for anyone who wishes to read the book to have the full story. So, by all means, ask and ye shall receive, :)

I only now realized that most folks were only getting to read the Bookrix sample of this, and not the downloadable sample (which was different). I have altered the content so it now encompasses the full 6 chapters promised.

Good choice of cover-layout, and nice intro! My own first suspicion was a kinda drug-smuggler party vessel for Brandt's background, but I may find time to read the download to find out for real.

Anyway, appreciated & rare enough that someone does not stick to cheapest stereotypes, hope it sells well, in case you plan to craft it for monetary ambitions.

Given that vampires are clinically dead bodies i usually scoff at sexual... mehr anzeigen

Thank you for the idea. Essentially once you publicly offer your book, its considered "published" by agents and publishers, and it hurts chances for trade publication. So i can't do that. But thank you.

Well, delving in memories I just uploaded the old story about my own thoughts on a vampire with less morals than passions & addictions...
