Meet Professor James, Master of the OCCULT

In 1975 I acquired a collection of antique, but damaged manuscripts after a mysterious fire beguiled the dim British authorities for four years.  Somewhere along the frontier between England and Wales, in a crumbled vault beneath a burned mansion; dozens of leather bound journals, diaries, and books were rescued.  Their contents were fantastical: histories, ages of vampiric accounts, coven wars, and abstract chronicles. The police, of course, uneducated in such matters of the occult or the unexplained, found the material rubbish against their modern case in need of evidence and forensics.
Fortunately, in my subsequent studies and adventures, I have found that truth is indeed stranger than fiction. You must forgive me the cliché, but my analysis and preservation of these personal antiquities has brought me to new heights of bizarrity, both on the page and in the flesh.  I thought I was a wise, aware professor knowing beyond the day-to-day world before I came to read of this twisted Vampire Family.   My pride was in err. 


After several lengthy years of study and a very slow restoration process on the oldest documents, I succumbed to an offer of assistance from a student named Theodore Plunkett.  A scholar of ancient languages, Theodore’s detailed list of degrees and credentials were too numerous for his youthful appearance.  His intelligence was vast; yet he was a personal master at comprehending and restoring the fantastic tales of Antonio Welshire and his mad family’s descent into the dark world of vampirism.  From patriarch Antonio’s brutal human days to the coven’s near destruction by the rival Lilithan vampires and the ambiguous Mestiphles’ meddling appearances and disappearances; this Vampire Family’s history is very well documented through some centuries and bare and bleak in others. Some journals are utterly disturbing in their tales of blood and mayhem while other diaries are strangely heartfelt, bittersweet, and uncomfortably endearing.  


The fire that brought these texts into my possession was education blessing enough-the lifetime epitome of Tut and Troy to most scholars.  Some library men would be content to sit behind their musky parchments and read the decades away.  I, however, have had the unique privilege of authenticating these documents as truth.  Of course, that wasn’t until many years later; when Theodore arrived at my office door looking as young as the day we first met.  On the plane to Philadelphia, I never suspected I would arrive at the doorstep of sisters Samantha and Victoria Welshire.  I had read over five hundred years of their tall tales; yet here the startling beauties were, living and breathing before me fangs and all.  Only then did I begin to realize the full extent of this familial coven....



That's our introduction to my new 7 book series with Muse It Up, Fate and Fangs: Tales from the Vampire Family.  We'll be spending the day today Friday October 7 revisiting the first 2 books in the series- Love: Ann and the Viking and Punishment: Lilith's Trials- before opening the floor to Book 3 in the collection.   


Struggle: Elizabeth in America oh yeah, releases TODAY of course! How cool is that?



But for now....a question to ponder from the Professor: 


Which would you choose? Fate or Fangs?

Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books. Sure, I understand. You are young you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a Vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, But how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity, I can help you solve any problem you are having
(1) If you want your ex back.
(2) If you want to stop having bad dreams.
(3) You want to be promoted in your office.
(4) You want women/men to run after you.
(5) If you want a child.
(6) You want to be rich.
