How time flies

It has been  nearly a year since my last post, and I still haven't released my sequel 'The Truth of Vengeance'.:(

I said before it is going through editing. During which time I have refined the book and expanded it, Which meant it had to return to the editing stage again. However, it was worth the extra effort. The sequel expands the vampire world and pushes Thorn's and Jon's relationship further. The truth about vampires and the hunters are revealed.

Also whilst waiting for the editing, I started a new book and finished another outstanding project.
Both of which may have added to the delay.

All three books I plan to release over the course of this year or earlier next year.

As I said before, if you want the chance to win a copy of "Truth of Vengeance:Vampire Formula #2"
Then contact me http://www.thornsneedles.com/p/contact-me.html 
I will be giving away copies as part of the book launch.
Those that have already contacted me are in the draw.
Plus sample chapters will be available and a cover reveal.

Thank you to everyone who has contacted me and asked about the release date.

I Want Vengeance update 2

My Free ebook 'I Want Vengeance' is now available at http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00GFRK264/ as well



Product Description

I have often tried to pinpoint the events that set me on this bloody path. When did the dark seeds of my vengeance get viciously stamped into the mud of life and watered with blood to sprout fang and claw? Many of the key events are obvious, but there are others that played a crucial part. My mother dying when she gave birth to me is an obvious event, and my father working for the government in genetic engineering is another. However, one day existed when events occurred in parallel that undoubtedly lead me to this dark place.

This short story is a prequel to the "The Birth of Vengeance," and the beginning of a vampire series of books.


Available for FREE at


Amazon.com and Amazon.ca and Amazon.co.uk and  Amazon.com.au

Vampire Books or stories for Men, Guys or Boys

When writing my book, "The Birth of Vengeance," I always had in mind the main audience would be male. The book was written from a male point of view and the main character is male.

I have always been happy how many women have responded well to the book and like the strong character of Thorn, the female vampire. I always intend her character to be strong and independent and the opposite of the hapless females of other paranormal fantasies.

I have researched other vampire books for men in the bid to find my audience. There are a few of well known note, and I am sure there are plenty in the midst of the vampire catagories I haven't yet found.
I noticed they come listed under a number of keywords.
- vampire books for guys
- vampire books for men
- vampire stories for guys or men
- vampire books or stories for boys

There is also a list I created on Goodreads
https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/45401.Vampire_books_for_Men

Here is a list of the top books I have found. These are the ones that are most often mentioned.

1) The Birth of Vengeance (start with my own book. Why not)

2) Dracula (of course)

3) A Living Nightmare (Cirque Du Freak, #1) by

4) Let the Right One In by  

5) Vampire Chronicles: Interview with the Vampire, The Vampire Lestat, The Queen of the Damned

by

I shall continue to add on books to this list. 
Please feel free to contact me with your own recommendations.
