Hello my darklings,
Hope this summer finds you well. Mine has been rather eventful. My writer is doing something called “storyboarding”. One of her beta readers, (whatever that is). suggested it. She’s been combing through the next book in the Kansas Vampire series and doing some very strange things.
She’s gathered a whole bunch of colored pens and highlighters, and note cards. She’s reading and rereading my story, and writing down every little thing that happens on individual note cards with one color of ink for each family member.I’m not sure what that’s supposed to do, but she’s taking some comfort in the results,
I want to warn you. The next two books in my story are not pretty. The story is rough and sometimes ugly. I hope you can learn and heal from what has happened to me.
On a lighter note, if you need a fix, make sure to read a “between the books” story. My writer had it published in an anthology and the name of the book is “Surrender in the Darkness”. I’m still a little miffed that my writer told some of Psych’s story instead of mine. I think you will like what happened.
Anyway, thank you all for supporting my writer. She loves writing and she is so much calmer and pleasant when she is writing. If it weren’t for you all supporting her and buying her books, she’d be nearly intolerable.
Well, I suppose I had better give the laptop back to my writer and let her get some sleep. She doesn’t totally trust me with her computer yet. So sleep well my dark little ones and I will update you soon on the progress of my writer and the books.

So far, things have been pretty crazy. My writer has been working 13 hour days lately. She is so tired and I wish I could do more to help her. Blog posts, tweets, updates, and marketing are necessary to sell books and there is no time to do any of it.
The new job has been a good thing for my writer. Her confidence is blooming and she is coping with the new duties well. An addition of hours at her second (or is it third) job has her tired but the financial strain is lessened.
My writer is now working on the second book in my series. More adventure, more problems, and some new characters are entering the story now. There is a short story out in a charity anthology “Surrender in the Darkness” called “Psyched Out”. Yes, it deals with Psych and he has quite an adventure!! Please make sure to read it as it fills in some gaps in my book. There may or may not be more short stories like “Psyched Out” appear in the future.
Well, it looks like I have to go. My writer needs to use the computer to do some work on my third book? Wait. There is going to be a THIRD book to the series! Okay, time to go. I will message you all later!
until next time-
Hello my freaky ones! I managed to have a snow day with my writer! The roads out of town were terrible, and since she was caught up on her work at her new job, I convinced her that sliding backward down the first hill out of town was a good reason to stay home. We had freezing rain here last night until early this morning, then snow all morning until after lunch.
I managed to get her to write a new blog post about all of the new books she put out. My story, Night Blind, is LIVE and up for sale! My writer is now hard at work editing the second book in her Kansas Vampire series. Somehow, our little family has gained two new members. I really can’t say much more until I know some of you have read Night Blind, and a story in the anthology- Surrender in the Darkness. TOO MANY SPOILERS so don’t even ask!!
Well, I’m getting a little hungry and I need a nap. I will be back to write to you all soon.
Hello my little darklings!
I do hope the autumn weather is to your liking. I am enjoying the cooler nights and warm days. But lately, I’m a little upset with my writer. She’s always busy lately.
The last few weeks, she has neglected me and has been publishing. Cipri the vampire has a story featured in an anthology to be released later this year. Yes, I just rolled my eyes and I’m a little jealous that some of her story will be released before mine.
My writer didn’t stop there. She is releasing a novel, “Night Moves” in a few days AND it has a follow-up story in the next book to be released, “Paranormal Bites”, a short story anthology of my writer’s work. No, I don’t have a story in it.
I’m hoping my book, “Night Blind” will be released soon. My writer keeps assuring me it will be, but I’m getting very impatient.
For now, I’ve swiped her proof copy of “Night Moves” and I plan to take a nice, long bubble bath and make sure this is a quality book.
Enjoy the pleasant fall weather, take care of each other, and Happy Halloween!
until later, my freaky ones,
Isys the vampire

Hello my little ones!
Today is the day here in America we celebrate our nation’s birthday. I won’t go into all of the history about the revolution and the Declaration of Independence and everything.
But there are a few things I would like for all of you to keep in mind. Today is a day when we celebrate with fireworks. There are soldiers who served in battle who are sensitive to loud noises and sounds of battle and gunfire. PLEASE be respectful of them. Those people chose to serve and protect our country and put their lives in danger. We need to be considerate while setting off fireworks around them.
I know you humans have dog and cat pets. Often, these creatures are frightened by the loud sounds. This holiday causes the most lost pets. Please get your pets microchipped for identification. Please talk to your pet doctor about strategies for keeping your pets safe. You can make sure to not set of fireworks near them. Make sure gates and fences are solid and closed/latched. Use a collar and leash if needed. If your pet becomes too panicked, take them somewhere they feel safe (inside). Turn on the television and/or fans to help with the noise as well. If things are too severe, talk to the pet’s doctor about medicines and other ways to soothe your pets.
We are fortunate here in America. We have freedoms we take for granted that other countries do not enjoy. We need to thank our veterans who served. Go ahead and celebrate our freedoms. Enjoy the fireworks. Remember the sacrifices of others so we can have everything we do have.
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO SERVED!! THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!!
until next time, my pretties!

Hello my freaky ones!
With all of the bad publicity these days surrounding the name Isis, I decided it best to adapt (yet again) to these modern times. I changed the spelling of my name. I am now Isys. Still the same vampire, just IsystheVampire. I won’t get into all of the politics and horrid stuff, but maybe I do feel a little better about changing my name because I don’t think the political stuff will go away anytime soon. (okay, yes I think it SUCKS for them to ruin my name.)
I am learning how to better use this site. I plan on taking some of the responsibility for my website off of my writer’s hands. That way Angel can WRITE.
Well I do hope you all are keeping cool this summer. Please check on your pets (animal and human) and make sure they have adequate shelter, water, and a place to stay cool.
