Happy Holiday season my lovelies,
I do hope all is well with you. I say happy holidays because those of you out there may have different religions and beliefs. Giving doesn’t have to mean things that cost money. You can give your time and/or something homemade. Be with those you love.
This winter season has been tough on my writer. The furnace in her house has been on the sketchy side for three years now. Finally, her hubby did some major research and fixed it (after the nice man from the HVAC business nearby made a house call). On top of some other changes, my writer is updating her websites with the help of a friend. (Thanks Em!)
I’m following her example and I’m muddling through updating my own. It’s time for the letting go the old and making way for the new. Winter Solstice will be upon us all soon. Enjoy your precious time with your family and friends! Best holiday wishes to you all!
Hello my dark ones!
We have a blizzard going on today across the whole state. It would be beautiful. but for the wind. I don’t mind the snow. I don’t like the cold and the whiteout conditions.
My writer has some beans on to soak, coffee in the pot, and a venison skirt steak in the slow-cooker. She just released the next book in the series, Waking the Devil. She’s hard at work on my next book, AND an unfinished werewolf novel. (I can’t be jealous because she works on the wolf story when we -the vampires- are unavailable.)
We are safe and snug here on the ranchette. Even though Kansas is CLOSED by order of the Governor of Kansas, we prepared for this weather a few days ago. Hopefully, by sunset, the winds will stop. I will take a walk and help my writer dig out so she can get to her day job in the morning. We have several inches of snow where it hasn’t blown off or drifted.
Be safe. Carry your winter survival kit in your vehicle. (Candle and matches or flares, cat litter, salt, BLANKETS or extra clothing, first aide kit, shovel, ice scraper, jumper cables, flashlights, non-perishable food, and tow rope, PLEASE.) Watch the weather, be aware of changing road conditions, and STAY SAFE.
hello my lovelies!
the weather here is rather fall-like in Kansas finally. crisp mornings, cool evenings, and colorful trees. soon, we will use the stove and the smell of a wood fire will fill the valley.
It’s been a hard spring/summer for my writer. She is having some landmarks happen in her life and even though she thinks she’s not ready, she really is. I know she will shine over the next few months.
the movie about my story is on hold for now. it’s nothing out of the ordinary- the script hasn’t been approved yet. YET. if I have my way, and my writer, and the director, this issue will hopefully rectified in a few weeks. THEN comes the problem of funding…
I am happy that my writer has her next book with her pro editor. by December it will be ready for release. I am excited even though I’m not in the book…
Okay, I have to go. I’ve chattered enough and my writer needs the computer back.
until next time-
xoxo Isysthe Vampire
Hello my darklings!
I do hope you all are well! I have been lucky enough to be out and about over the last few days. The weather is beautifully cloudy and rainy, and perfect for me!
My writer has been busy with getting out the next book. Sadly, it is not one of mine. But it is about Twitch and Psych chasing around after some werewolf folk, and Justus being in a bar in the middle of nowhere and finding himself in trouble.
Or, “Three of the Kansas Vampires are on hiatus from their normal activities. Justus, Psych and Twitch are on their own missions this time. Werewolves, rival vampires, and even a bit of romance cross paths with the fanged mercenaries in these stories.” And “A Kansas-centric trio of tales that take you into the world of the Kansas Vampires. This between-the-books collection of stories brings together unlikely alliances and introduces new characters. Everything from sweet to spicy, filled with action and adventure, this is sure to be a wild read. Waking the Devil- Justus finds himself in a bar in the middle of nowhere and deep in trouble with the local vampires. Psyched Out- For Cipri the rogue vampire, a quick trip into the city for a belly dance gig turns into more than just a night out. A mysterious man takes her out for a drink and into a dangerous situation. Fresh Blue- Psych and Twitch get a call to do some security work for a werewolf. But will they be able to find the answers they seek before things turn deadly?”
The film of my story has hit a slight snag. My writer had an emotional summer and some of the rest of the crew had some stuff happen as well. Hopefully, now that things have settled down, I can get my gal to the city to go through the script, line by line, (and freaking BORING stuff to me), so that they can green light the script. I am so PROUD of my writer for finishing the screenplay and staying with this project. I know she’s struggled with keeping the faith.
I know I have been pretty quiet most of this year. My writer has been going through more stuff than usual and hasn’t been herself lately. I have been sticking pretty close and keeping a close eye on her. I promise to be better about updating you about what’s happening.
I suppose I had better sign off for now.
Hello my dark little ones!
I am so excited! So many things are happening right now!
My writer had written the first book in my story, and someone bought the book Night Blind. Fast forward, and she gets a message. There is someone who is interested in maybe making my story into a movie. A MOVIE?!
Yes. It may not be Hollywood, but it is indie. A very nice director, a producer, and a cinematographer are all wanting to make my story!
My writer has been in meetings and busy writing the screenplay for the last several weeks. She finally finished the rough draft of the screenplay. Now she will work on correcting the errors and smoothing things out with the director and the cinematographer in the coming weeks.
I am soooo excited! MY STORY is possibly becoming a movie.
stay tuned for more updates to come!!
Hello my freaky darlings!
So much has happened since I last posted. Where to start?
My writer has taken my story in the book Night Blind, and written a script. As in a screenplay. Movie.
No, it’s not been sold to Hollywood. Yes, there are people who want to film this as a movie. I don’t know who will play my part yet, but my writer does have ‘book slapper’ privilege as well as being a creative consultant on this project. I’m still in awe over how quickly things are moving. Seriously, Bruce Campbell didn’t do so bad for starting small.
anyhoo. I guess there is a website and everything. Night Blind the movie. Check it out and stuff will be added as things move forward.
I’m pretty excited over it all. I can’t wait to hang out on set. (No, I’m not going to be making a snack of any of the crew. I want this movie made and good crew are hard to find.) I have a feeling this will be pretty awesome or at the very least, get me a cult following.
I can’t take myself too seriously. I can have fun with whatever happens. Please, join me on this wonderful venture!
Hello my freaky ones!
I do hope you have been well this winter. I’ve heard that the flu is bad this year. Luckily, my writer hasn’t been felled by the nasty stuff.
Anyway, my poor writer has been so busy this winter. She’s been doing more walking, more chores, and keeps herself pretty busy. I can’t wait until she slows down a bit this spring.
She’s excited to announce that she will be at the Little Apple Comic Expo again this year. She will be sharing a table with a dark comedy writer, J R Young (aka Jessica Benoist-Young). Last year was pretty awesome so I’m thinking this year will be even better!
Anyone who’s been following my books knows I’m still healing, and doing okay at this point. (DO NOT LISTEN TO WHAT SOME OF THE OTHER VAMPIRES IN MY FAMILY ARE SAYING!) I’m getting better. Progress is slow. MOVING ON…
I’m glad to see a few of you are following my sporadic blog posts. I’m going to try to post more often.
If you have a chance GO TO Manhattan (KANSAS) and attend the Little Apple Comic Expo. It’s a stellar gathering of artists, writers, cosplayers, fans, craftsmen and women, and it’s affordable in the K-State University Union.
I’d better go. My writer wants her computer back. Sleep well my freaky ones!

Hello my dark little ones!
My writer, after taking on a job as a journalist, and her pro editor fell ill, managed to get my next book PUBLISHED!!
She’s also decided to make herself available as a panelist at ConQuesT in Kansas City in May. (I’m hoping she will let me tag along with her. I hear there is going to be another vampire there!) So, she is wanting the computer back. Even though I just got to use this one for the first time. (yes, I’m pouting. Even though Twitch says it’s unbecoming.)
Anyhoo. I’m so glad you’re on this journey with me and my writer. We appreciate each and every one of you who follows us. Without you, we couldn’t do what we do. So, PLEASE, get out there, buy the next book in my story, Flip Side, on Amazon, and take a look into my life.
Hello my freaky ones!
I do hope things are well for you. I just wanted to update you on the progress of the next book. Flip Side- Kansas Vampires Book 2 is in final edits! I am so excited! My writer hopes to do a release party in November of 2017!
The guys from ComicPop Library want to do a pre-release interview with my writer in a few days and I can’t wait!
I can say that more of my story will be revealed, along with a couple of new characters, and the return of some old enemies. My writer is still working on the third book in the series, along with a couple of other projects. I apologize for not keeping in touch like I should have, but things have been a bit unsettled lately.
Tonight, the weather is warm and stormy, with waves of rain and the threat of severe thunderstorms continuing until close to midnight. I had better put the laptop away and ride out the next batch of pop-up storms.
Stay safe! I will post the links to the interview as soon as they are available. Thanks!
Hello my freaky ones!
Sorry it’s been so long. Things have been kinda crazy here the last few months. My writer’s laptop that I borrow is getting ready to die on her, her faithful car quit, she’s done a couple of book signings, and last night had her first podcast!
I’m so proud of her! And the best part is that the crew over at ComicPop Library reviewed MY STORY and they kinda liked it. They are a cool bunch of humans over there and they review lots of things there: books, music, anime, comics, and I’m not sure what else. PLEASE stop by and check them out.
Uh oh. She’s here and wanting the laptop. I’d better go and let my writer get her blogging and such done.
