Help An Author out - Elizabeth Kolodziej - The Last Witch Series...



About this project

A little about me and a lot about this project
My name is Elizabeth J Kolodziej and I have been writing about the paranormal all my life (cliche, I know) however, I didn't know until my early twenties that my writing might be something other people want to read too! Go figure. Writing is my passion and I found that I also love the marketing, publishing and everything that goes into the process of getting a book printed. It's said that most indie authors won't sell more than a 100 copies of there book. In one year I sold, not gave away, but sold over 1,000 copies of Vampyre Kisses.




I was very lucky to have a family that believed in me and sponsored me when I needed it. Sadly, March 22nd 2012 will be the one year anniversary of my father, David Kolodziej, death. Without him in my life I have had to fight and work long hours to get the money for my books to be printed. Now, it is getting to the point where I'm running out of ways to get the money for publishing and marketing Witch Devotions, the third book in the Last Witch Series. Because it is the third I want to be able to give this book everything it deserves. A terrific cover (with a live model), creame paper, advertising on websites and much more.


Details of the Plan

Witch Devotions is done and just about ready for print. I have already put together the marketing plan for Witch Devotions, which will entail:


Button advertising on five big sites that are book blogs or book related sites.
Setting up a blog hop AND a blog tour
Blog radio spots during the month of release
Book reviews from places like RT BookLovers, Kirkus, Amazon Vine, Apex, Reader Views, etc.
Making a book trailer
Release "party" on bittenbybooks.com
And much more. I have never done something as big as this for a marketing plan since I have never had enough money to do it. Most of my marketing for my series was free. I know this series is great though and with the third book out it will get so many more readers. That is if I can get your help.


Synopsis for Vampyre Kisses

Vampyre Kisses is an enthralling story about a young woman named Faith, who was content with her life, but deep down craved more excitement. Then a mysterious man named Trent enters her life and everything changes. Surprising to Faith, Trent is a green-eyed vampire from Ireland. She is even more surprised to find out that she is a witch, and the last of her kind.

Faith finds out that she is destined to restore her witch line and becomes more powerful as she gains confidence and knowledge, but danger lurks everywhere. Especially when unknown assailants steal the most important gems from the vampire master and werewolf royalty.

Now surrounded by a world full of mystifying vampires and werewolves, can Faith gain enough power to help her friends and rescue the stolen gems?



Synopsis for Werewolf Descent

Last witch in the world, Faith Scott, and her Irish vampire boyfriend Trent have just come back from fighting for their lives to recover the Vampiric Blood gem and Werewolf Moon gem. Thinking they could finally relax and work on the romance growing between them, they now meet a mysterious psychic vampire named Vincent who has his heart set on being with Faith.

Soon bizarre killings of Zou Tai’s werewolf pack begin, with rumors of an alchemist possessing the famed philosophers stone being the assailant; which, causes Faith to turn to Vincent for help in figuring out why the werewolves are being murdered.

It isn’t long before all those around them test Trent and Faith’s love, along with their abilities, once again. It is all Trent can do to keep Faith safe by his side while both go up against a deadly alchemist, deceptive gods, and having to rescue the werewolf prince; yet, after a deal with the God of Werewolves will Trent be able to save himself too?



Working synopsis for Witch Devotions:

With Trent gone, Faith feels that she can not go on without him. The pain grows so intense that she even shuts out her friends and loved ones to be alone; unsure of what to think about the supernatural world anymore. However, on a trip to see Gordon she realizes what she can do to make the pain go away. A spell.


The spell ends up back firing and Faith, last witch in the world, has now forgotten the past six months. All the memories of vampires, werewolves, and guardians have vanished. And the first to find her is Louis, her mother’s close friend and slayer.


With webs of lies and deceit falling upon her ears, Faith doesn’t know what is up and down. Then Louis gives her the option to become a slayer and she takes it, thinking vampires are evil. Along with the Goddess Circe interfering, Lilith still missing and Faith unable to remember Trent no one knows what will happen next!


Then walks in Patrick who has a secret about him that he doesn’t even realize. Through him Morgan finds out where Faith is and fly’s to Vegas to save her, but Faith is more untrusting that a rabid wolf.
Are these vampires and werewolves telling her the truth? Is she a witch in love with a vampire? Or will she proceed with being a slayer? The coin is still up in the air…and Faith doesn’t know where her devotions lie.


Along with this series, I write short stories and novellas under my own company name and other publishers. To learn more about me, my books, and see reviews please go to www.vampyrekisses.com


What about money left over?

I'll be amazed if there is BUT for such an occasion know that the money will go into the next book in the series and getting it published.
I hope you will contribute!
<3's and fangs,
Liz ^_^

Ednah Walters - Writing Dangerous Love Tour Wrap up and Winners !

Id like to thank all the bloggers who have particpated in the Dangerous Love Book Tour !! Ednah has written a wrap up on Writing Dangerous Love.





WRITING DANGEROUS LOVE



Writing a series needs a blueprint, which means you always keep in mind or keep a file on all the characters in book #1, what they do, their backgrounds and quirks even though you won’t write their stories until much later.  Some writers tend to add characters as they go. And yes, I plan to add more Fitzgeralds as long as readers love reading about them, but I made sure that is possible when I mentioned that Grampa Fitzgerald had many children and I even introduced readers to some uncles—the cop, the lawyer, the one from Texas (who is in oil drilling) and Montana (ranchers) and of course, the aunts. But the background info must tie neatly as you write later books.

(See the partial Family Tree on my Webpage: http://www.ebwalters.com/fitzgeraldfamilytree.htm)

Dangerous Love is book #4 of the Fitzgerald Family series, yet I had Faith Fitzgerald and Ken Lambert in the back of my mind when I wrote Slow Burn (book #1 in the series/Ron Noble and Ashley Fitzgerald’s story). Ken was Ron’s best friend and the private detective/security consultant who helped him find the arsonist terrorizing Ashley. During one of their conversations, Ron teases Ken about his mother and sister running his love-life and his grandmother bringing him a wife from the old country. It is only one scene, but as I wrote Dangerous Love, I had to remember this and make his background gel with this earlier conversation. Ken is part Japanese and his grandmother is a tiger mom. I absolutely enjoyed meeting his family and writing its background.

We also met Faith several times in Slow Burn. At one time she is in the fitting room taking measurements while talking to Ashley on the phone. So I knew what she did for a living—designing clothes. In Mine until Dawn, we learn that Faith spent her teen years with her cousins, not her parents. Since Mine until Dawn is Jade’s story, I didn’t have to explain why Faith lived with Jade’s family. I left that door open for her background, which becomes clearer as you read Dangerous Love. The bottom line is, when I sat down to write Dangerous Love, which is book #4 in the series, I pretty much knew about Faith and Ken’s backgrounds and couldn’t change a thing.

So when I start writing Chase’s story, Lex, Eddie, the Montana cousins, the Texas cousins and so on, the blueprint will already be there. All I have to do is hope the love of their lives talks to me. Right now, the woman meant to tame Eddie is speaking to me from places I didn’t think I’d revisit. Goes to prove how unpredictable characters can be, even one with a mapped out future.

Believe like A Child - Paige Dearth

I was contacted by Paige asking to review her book and upon receiving her email , left it be and returned to it later. Only reason being I read the first few lines and wasnt sure if this genre was for me.. Dark, scary and somewhat way to close to the horrific truths in life.

 Upon reading her email again I decided I wanted to help at least one of Paige's dreams come true -  to become a best selling author. After reading Believe like a Child, as  dark and haunting as it was I just couldnt put this book down !! Find as follows the cover, blurb and my thoughts. It took me a few days to get over this book, so if your an emotional reader this will certainly tug at your heart strings !


Alessa is just seven years old when her uncle rapes her for the first time. As the years pass, his sexual appetite becomes more voracious and his perversion more twisted, until the abuse has become almost a daily ritual, with the unspoken involvement of the girl&#x2019;s mother.

At the age of sixteen, after the death of her only friend, Alessa finds herself at the mercy of her real-life monster, with no relief in sight. She flees her home to escape this hell, only to find herself descending into a more dangerous one. Alone and helpless in the streets of North Philadelphia, she encounters more human predators who want to take over her life and devour her. About to hit rock bottom, Alessa manages to break away from her new tormentors and finds refuge in a shelter for homeless and abused women.

Wherever she goes, however, trouble keeps seeking her out, until she meets three people who change the course of her life forever. Though Alessa&#x2019;s bittersweet journey is perpetually fraught with challenges, she does, nevertheless, manage to find fleeting moments of joy along the way. But as she begins to settle down, a ghost from the past comes to haunt her again, threatening to destroy the very foundation of her small world and plunging her back into an abyss of despair, until she makes her final bid for escape



MY THOUGHTS

Believe like a Child is a haunting part Fiction part true story of Alessa, a seven year old girl who is sexually abused by her uncle as a child, abused for ten years of her youthful life this not only defines Alessa, but also makes her grow in more ways than one.

Upon receiving Paige’s quest to review her debut novel I was very hesitate and slightly deterred. The nature of the story I was very unsure about, normally I would not read something along this line. But upon reading the first few lines I already had Goosebumps, unsure if I could read such a dark and haunting story I read on to read that Paige's goal is life was to be a bestselling author. I then replied and wanted to help her dream come true.

Believe like a Child.

Alessa is alone, young naive and scared - she runs away from home to find that not only in the confines of her own home are they monsters but also throughout the streets she walks. Alessa embarks on a journey of survival, pain and hurt. But the things that happen in her life has defined the person she wants to become, not what she has been. Finally Alesssa finds light at the end of the dark Tunnel she meets Remo, finds love and yearns to help others and help them from their depths of despair. Alessa's past comes back to haunt her sending her spiralling back into her past, .................... An unpredictable ending.. I was heartbroken ...

Paige Dearth has created Believe like a child with such vivid and dramatic descriptions - It’s filled with emotional angst, unpleasant and informative moments and quiet graphic details. Her characters are created with such life, and the pain put forth can only come from someone whom has survived such an ordeal. This is not a read for the faint hearted. Believe like a child is a powerful story of Alessa - a child of incest - rape - and many other things one could never imagine possible. This story revolves around the sexual abuse not only of Alessa but many children whom then flee their homes to be free to be left homeless, hungry , alone and willing to do anything in order to survive.

Paige has written a powerful story that will not only touch your heart, but have it aching in sorrow at what people can do and also the small things that people do - that’s means a lot.

Paige has created characters whom will drawn you into the pages, having your heart breaking, your tears running, and your temper raging. All the characters created in this book are well defined, each having there own traits which not only defines them but gives them that place in the story.

Paige has put forth Alessa's life, a compelling story that will certainly sadden your heart. It will have you weeping all the way through. As horrific as some scenes maybe and as the story is put forth I was unable to put this story down. I was drawn to this story, because I wanted to see where ALessa's life went. From dealing with the sick sexual needs of some people to moving on with life, to find love and happiness, this story has come from within.

Three people can change the course of ones life, through Alessa’s horrific journey, faced with more challenges that one person would normally see in one lifetime she soliders on …… Determined, to be more than her past.

Believe Like a Child will take you on a ride that will open your eyes to the horrific truths to what does actually happen in the world – every single day…. Its filled with many emotions: betrayl, pain, anger, hurt, love, trust and hope. Im sure as the reader you will also feel these as your read along with the story, it will pull you into the pages, and as horrific and terrible the ordeal is ,, it will compel you to read on.

I must say a dramatic ending that will have you sobbing and wandering WTF>>> I must say I didnt see it coming and my heart ached after I turned the last page. Not the ending I was hoping for at the least !!!

Paige has done a wonderful job with this novel, her debut ** Believe like a child ** .. I hope that this story takes her to where she wants to be. Its been a roller coaster ride For Paige and as a reader one can only hope her dream with this incredibly written story will be the dream she has always wanted.


BE WARNED - IT DOES CONTAIN GRAFFIC AND SEXUALLY EXPLICIT DETAILS THAT MANY PEOPLE EXPERIENCE IN LIFE. REGARDING RAPE,CHILD MOLESTATION ,HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND PROSITUTION. THE NOVEL OPENS UP THE READERS HEART TO UNDERSTAND HOW SMALL ACTS OF KINDNESS PROVIDE THE PROTAGONIST OF THE STORY HER GREATEST MOMENTS IN LIFE. (( Note taken from letter from Paige Dearth



I rated this book 5/5 !! It took me days to get over this book ! The emotional reader I am - those last few pages where definetly the icing ripped straight off my happy ever after ! :'( UNPREDICTABLE !!!


PAIGE CAN BE FOUND OVER AT FACEBOOK
GOODREADS


About this author

SOME DIRT ON PAIGE:

Born and raised in Plymouth Meeting, a small town west of Philadelphia, Paige Dearth was a victim of child rape and spent her early years yearning for a better life. To escape the unwanted attentions of her molester, a pedophile uncle who lived with the family, she married at the age of nineteen and moved with her new husband to Chula Vista, California. After two years of marriage during which she struggled to make ends meet, she became pregnant, only to discover that her husband was a heroin addict. Paige waited for the birth of her daughter and when the baby was just eight months old, moved back to Pennsylvania. With no formal education or money to fall back on, she courageously set out to pick up the pieces of her shattered life and make it whole once more.

Living through the fear and isolation of her youth, Paige developed the ability to create stories that would help her cope and finally put them to use by embarking on a series of novels. Believe Like A Child, the author’s debut offering, is the darkest version of who she could have become, had fate not intervened in the nick of time. It presents a fine balance between what lives on in her imagination and the evil that lurks in the real world.








Crave by Felicity Heaton - Review

Crave is book two in Felicity Heatons new Vampirerotique series !


His mind has been set on his work for the past one hundred years. Now a forbidden beauty has stolen his attention and is threatening to steal his heart too.

Callum has come to the city of romance on business, not pleasure, but when he sets eyes on a gorgeous werewolf in a nightclub, he can’t ignore the dark carnal craving she ignites in him. His work for Vampirerotique, the erotic theatre he runs with three other vampires, can wait. The only thing that matters now is satisfying his sinful hunger for a woman who most vampires would consider an enemy.

Kristina is on the run from her pack. Her alpha is intent on forcing her to bear his child and she’s not about to live through the same nightmare as her mother had. When a tall, dark and sexy vampire catches her eye, she can’t believe the ferocity of the desire he unleashes in her or the fact that she enjoys the feel of his eyes on her and his silent pursuit of her in the clubs each night.

When Kristina finally gets a taste of Callum in a forbidden kiss, will she be strong enough to resist the allure of the vampire and his offer to share his bed for a week of unbridled, wild sex, or will she surrender to her own craving for the safety and passion she finds in his embrace?


My thoughts !


Felicity's New Vampirerotic series has definitly tickled more than just my fancy. Who doesn't enjoy steamy hot, smexy sex scenes, Forbidden love, lust and passion with an intriguing storyline to boot !

It’s Short, sweet, captivating and downright delicious with a storyline that that you can read from front to back and still be left wanting more.

Crave introduces us to Kristina - a werewolf on the run from her pack and Callum what one might call a work aholic Vampire. He has had his mind set on his work for the past 100 years but upon meeting Kristina, grows immense passion and want for a taste of this forbidden beauty. A night of immense pleasure and lust, Callum offers Kristina a deal a week of hot sex, booty slapping and encounters of many kinds. Will she accept - ** OH my how could one say NO >>>>> ** lol.

The passion these two characters have is ** Spine tingling ** toes curling and will leave you **hot not only under the covers** but maybe even pushing the sheets aside. ! Yes... It’s scorchin...

Felicity as always, has created characters for us to enjoy, a wonderfully woven storyline, that I’m sure for all those who enjoy erotica will love the heat in this story. Lots of smoking love scenes, in which she has also shown us depth and definition into her characters, in the bedroom and out.

We got a glimpse of other characters brought forth from the previous story - Snow of course - makes my heart skip a beat - walking out in chains * geesh * I thought I was going to spontaneously com bust!! I so can’t wait for his story lol.. ** Yes I’m slightly infatuated by him... ** as Felicity well knows lol.

Crave is overflowing with super steamy Erotic encounters - For all those who enjoy Erotica with a tale to tell then this new series is for you.

What can I say its Sinfully sexy - and it will have you craving more than just words way past the last pages ;) ** wink wink **



5/5

Dangerous Love - E B Walters Book Tour Book review .

Hi Everyone and welcome to the Dangerous Love book Tour.. Today I have my book review for you all. Dangerous Love being the fourth book in the series..


Find the book cover !! Just stunning if I say so myself and the blurb then my review.


She has her emotions on a tight leash…
Born to a Las Vegas showgirl, fashion designer Faith Fitzgerald’s childhood was not easy, until her father found her and whisked her off to L.A. to join his wealthy family.

The rejection by some of her family members hurt, but Faith has moved on. Or so she thinks. She works hard and never lets her guard down, until the day she discovers that someone stole and sold her designs to her competitor and former mentor. To catch the thief and salvage her collection for Fall Fashion Week, Faith turns to her ex-lover, a man who works under the radar and gets results fast. The problem is she has not seen him since she dumped him so unceremoniously.

He’s laid-back and spontaneous…

When former-FBI-agent-turned-security-consultant Kenneth ‘Ken’ Lambert receives a call from Faith asking for his services, he sees a chance to payback the gorgeous designer for the way she used him then walked out on him. But then he learns that she is being victimized by a man whose idea of love is both dangerous and toxic, Ken pushes aside his personal agenda and agrees to help her.

As their investigation progresses, Ken discovers that Faith’s calm exterior hides a woman of character and strength, a woman on the verge of falling apart. Can he help her find the answers she seeks or will she accept his offer instead—acceptance, unconditional love and support.




My thoughts .


Dangerous Love ------------ what more can I say ...The cover is just stunning!!! *fans self-* Oooooooh this one’s a MUST READ !! What am I saying – The Fitzgerald Series is a must read !!! lol..
 Faith Fitzgerald is successful, beautiful and a very outgoing fashion designer, - she knows her work and is well known for her designs . Faith is trying her best to work her way up the ladder, deal with life and just be the best she can be. She moves on with life dealing with family - some who do accept her and others who don’t. Life hasn’t been the Easiest for Faith but she goes forth to give it her best shot!( Single , dedicated and determined !!! I loved her spunk – she has great strength and Im sure she will be a character you will thoroughly enjoy !)

 After finding out that her designs have been stolen from one of her clients - so close to her showing she hires Kenneth Lambert a sexy ex FBI agent and also one with whom Faith shared a lustful, spine-tingling night of passion. She knows he is good at his job, and hires him to find out the truth behind the designs being stolen.

 Kenneth takes on her case thinking it’s time for payback, after she used him and cast him aside, BUT after seeing her case, realizes it’s more involved than first put forth. Faith is in danger and Kenneth and his agency and her cousin will try and get to the bottom of it.
 A Dangerous Love or infatuation can lead to many things, murder, betrayal, mystery and nothing but bad luck. Someone is out to destroy Faith at every and any cost, will Kenneth be able to find out whom, why and if the designs are as easily to be found to expose the fraud that they are? Will her family support her through her most trying time? *

 OH MY!!

I have to say Ednah has done it once again!! Passion that will singe your eyelashes,make your toes curl and leave you sheepishly grinning - .** waggles eyebrows ** and of course an intriguing storyline that will pique your interest and having you reading into the early hours.
 Kenneth and Faith have electricity, a magnetic forces that just draws them to each other. Faith never denied that Kenneth was everything she ever wanted – but the time and place was just not right... Her night with him she never truly forgot!! ** sigh ** seeing him again brings back that night where it all began, is Faith able to keep the investigation work related! Or will Kenneth show her what she has been missing the whole time ** sheepishly grinning here **** he is definelty one hotty !!


 Ednah has put forth all her descriptions and emotions perfectly creating a vat where the reader will be in a frenzy just to get from each page to the next. A wonderfully written storyline, that blends perfectly throughout with each chapter gliding from one to the next. The romance between Kenneth and Faith was absolutely delicious. There was no overwhelming amount of sensuality. (( not that I mind lol )) Instead, the delicious bedroom scenes and sexy action was very well balanced. The law enforcement aspect and the mystery involved in the story well placed.
 If you can call it a *Perfect concoction.

Twists and turns are thrown in, romance , and While the love scenes and sensuality certainly took a place it was smexy and entertaining I was very happy that the action and suspense in Dangerous Love was certainly interesting and intriguing. The love scenes were wonderfully hot, with just the right amount of emotional angst blended in. I had to wander if she was ever going to show Kenneth some lovin !! lol..


 I enjoyed all the characters Ednah has put forth, characters from previous books and new ones added, all placed well in the book giving them purpose. This can be read as a standalone, but I would certainly recommended that you read from book one so you know whom the characters are and a little about their background. Not necessary – just a recommendation!
 Overall, as I’ve said throughout a wonderfully blended story line for the romantic at hearts who enjoy a sensual romance with that suspense that will keep you intrigued from page one right till the very end!

 Dangerously Delightful !!

A teaser to get you started !!

 I want to hire you to steal some designs from my competitor’s offices,” she said.
Ken choked on his drink and started to cough. “What?”
“I want to hire you—”
“Jeez, don’t repeat it. I got it the first time.” He looked toward the nearest tables to make sure his voice hadn’t drawn attention. A few people were looking their way. He got up, undid the knot holding the flaps of the cabana entrance, so the white material fell into place, giving them total privacy. He pinned Faith with a hard gaze as he sat.
“Why would you want me to do something like that?” he asked, not masking his shock.
“Because he stole my designs, and I want proof so I can plan my next move.”
The relief that raced through Ken left him light-headed. He gulped his drink, wishing it was something stronger. He glowered at the maddening woman in front of him. Why did she always throw him a curve ball when he least expected it?
“Why didn’t you just say so in the first place?”
She shrugged. “I needed to get your attention. This is not a joke or a game for me. I need your help.”
Blunt as always. He’d been basking in the knowledge that she needed him for something, that he had her exactly where he wanted her. He just hadn’t expected this.

Character Interview & Giveaway - Creatura by Nely Cab ** Lets chat with David, Isis, Alezzander and Nyx.

Id like to Welcome Isis, David , Nyx and Alezzander to Page Flipperz today !! Creatura is one of my favourite reads of 2012 and I thought Id get a few of our favourite characters together to answer a few questions .. Ive just baked a wonderful batch of Chocolate Chip Biscuits for everyone  grab a cookie and sit back and relax and enjoy the interview . This is going to be fun !!!!



 
I walk into the room - David and Isis are nicely placed on the love seat snuggled together.   Alezzander and Nyx are seated side by side on different chairs. Time to start my interview..


Welcome all to Page Flipperz! Today I have a few questions I’d love to ask.


NYX: Before the interview begins, Ms. Whittaker, let me speak for all of us, and thank you for having us as your guests.


Kat: Thank you Nyx its wonderful that you all could make it today. Now to start out interview  Please Tell me your favourite movie of all time, and since all the immortals have lived such a long time do tell of you old time favourite ! Isis just let me know your all time favourite !


ALEZZANDER: Ms. Whittaker, with due respect, I have no time to indulge in film viewing.


NYX: (rolls her eyes) His favorites are Charlie Chaplain movies. My favorites are these new romantic comedies. That Bridget Jones girl is a slap on the knee! I do, however, hold all silent films dear to my heart.


ISIS: I have three favorite movies: “Sixteen Candles,” “Gone with the Wind,” and “Silence of the Lambs.”


ALEZZANDER: “Silence of the Lambs” is a hideous film, made for the blood thirsty and people with homicidal tendencies.


** Kat hides behind her snicker, whilst Nyx rolls her eyes **
DAVID: I thought you hadn’t time to watch films, Father?


ALEZZANDER: (crossing his arms and sighing) I saw previews.


DAVID: (unconvinced) Right. My favorites change with time. At the moment, some of my favorites are foreign films: “Pan’s Labyrinth,” “Life is Beautiful,” and the 2009 version of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.”


** I can imagine that Romeo and Juliet would be a favourite among us ? David ?


DAVID: Oh yes. I’ve forgotten to mention that one, as well.


** David you write beautiful poetry please tell us how you became so clever and romantic lol and upon meeting Isis your first impression.


DAVID: I sincerely thank you for the compliment. I began to fiddle with poetry whence my private lessons in literature began. The words seemed to fall freely on paper and write themselves. Sir Shakespeare was an integral part in my scholastic life. His works have endured centuries, which speaks highly of how suitable a mentor he was to me.


The first time I saw Isis… (smiles and looks at Isis) I thought the heavens had misplaced an angel.


This question can apply to Nyx and Alexxander as well... their thoughts on Isis ..


ALEZZANDER: (looks off to the side and remains quiet).


NYX: (Glaring at Alezzander) We love Isis very much. She’s part of this family, isn’t she, my husband?


ALEZZANDER: Yes, of course, part of the family. Next question, if you please?


ISIS: (bothered) Hmmph…


(David puts an arm around Isis and whispers in her ear to comfort her)


**Kat  - sighs **


NYX: (nodding) He sincerely means it.


ISIS: Whatever…


Everyone - ( except Isis) ** Explain to me ** Silent existence of the divine lineage **


ALEZZANDER: I apologize, but we cannot discuss this topic.


DAVID: But Father, we were brought to disclose information for the sake of appeal to our story.


ALEZZANDER: No. That would expose us to the entire world.


NYX: Alezzander…


ALEZZANDER: (Interrupting Nyx) Was I not clear?


(Nyx looks apologetically at the interviewer)


DAVID: Forgive us, Madame. We are not at liberty to answer this question.


ISIS (to David): I told you not to bring him.


** What did you all think of Gabriel having his imaginary friends and how they took over his life ?


ISIS: They were real. He was a victim. I don’t care what anyone else thinks. Gabriel would have never acted that way if those demons hadn’t made him.


DAVID: He was on drugs. Of course he would have.


NYX: Those were no imaginary friends. The Turpis or “Unseen” took advantage of his drugged and weakened state of mind.


** David - you gave up immortality for Isis please let me know how this makes you feel.


ALEZZANDER: (almost inaudible) He should feel like an idiot.


NYX: (speaking through her teeth) The question was directed at David.


DAVID: (turning his attention away from Alezzander and to Isis) I will never regret my decision. I know to whom my heart belongs.


ALEZZANDER (to Nyx): He IS an idiot.


NYX: Shut. It. (turns and smiles at interviewer) Please, continue with the questions, dear.


**Alezzander - You have lived for centuries= anything that you can say that has happened that will leave a mark for life ?


ALEZZANDER: (looking at Isis) Losing a son to morality.


(Isis lowers her head)


DAVID: That was uncalled for, Father. I made the decision, not her.


ALEZZANDER: You made the decision because of her.


(Uncomfortable silence fills the already thick air in the room)


Kat flips through her interview questions to move on ......................


Nyx - you love to cook whats your favourite - your pastries made my mouth water.


NYX: I love to experiment with new recipes that I make up on my own, but desserts are my favorite. I make a delicious Mango tart topped with sweetened crème fraiche and adorned with strawberries and mint leaves.


Isis - You have found out who you are not whom you though u where how does this make you feel ?


ISIS: I feel like I’ll never belong - like an outcast and a freak.


David - If you where to describe Isis as a flower which one would you pick ?


DAVID: Isis is like a Jasmine. She’s small and delicate but her sweet scent can fill the room in an instant.  


Nyx -with your abilities are there any downfalls ?


NYX: Yes. I hate knowing when people are lying to me. I can never bring myself to trust.


Alezzander- Are you like your son an a romantic at heart ?


ALEZZANDER: I am a romantic, as all men should be, but I would never place my family in danger because of it.


DAVID: Please stop torturing her (points to Isis).


ALEZZANDER: It wasn’t my intention. I am merely answering this woman’s question.


NYX: And when this session is over you’ll answer to me, as well.



Isis - When you first saw David he scared you - how does this compare to now meeting him ? Was it love at first site ?


ISIS: I first saw David in my dreams…


ALEZZANDER: (clearing his throat): Ehem…


ISIS: The first time I saw him was (glances at Alezzander warily) … at school?
(Alezzander nods) He was beautiful. I do think it was love at first at first sight, but he did something that made me think he had bad intentions toward me. After we got past that part, I couldn’t stop thinking about him. He was charming and a gentleman.




David - I must say your poems make me giddy and see hearts - do they take you long to write ?  I have read many and I love them all .. ** blushes **


DAVID: Some poems take a very short time – an hour – to write while others are more complex, taking far more time. I have, on more than one occasion, dedicated as much as two days to one poem.


Nyx and Alezzander - how long have you been together ** was it love at first site ? ** David is such a romantic at heart .. maybe it runs in the family ?


NYX: Alezzander, beneath his cold facade, is quite the romantic. He admired me secretly before we met. I remember the first time I ever saw him. I did not think to look at him twice. But he followed me and did not speak when he approached me. He looked at me directly in the eyes and lowered himself to the ground and kissed my feet.


ALEZZANDER (smiling): And I said to her, “Never will I lower myself before any other woman, for there will never be another.”


NYX: (reaching for Alezzander’s hand) And I knew he did not lie.


Alezzander - explain to me what family means ? Even if your family chooses outside your beliefs.


ALEZZANDER: Family are the blood to which one vows loyalty and protection, setting them before anything else, and never compromising their lives


Do any of you play sport ?


DAVID (Raising his hand): Rugby.


ALEZZANDER: Golf and Jiu Jitsu


NYX: I walk… at shopping centers.


ISIS: (shakes her head) Nope.




How does it feel to fly go anywhere you please ? whats your favourite destination to escape to.. Isis if David could take you anywhere where would you go.


NYX: I can’t fly. I don’t have wings.


ALEZZANDER: I have accumulated an exaggerated amount of frequent flyer miles. It feel wonderful to fry free of charge. Anywhere free is my favorite destination.


DAVID: It feels normal. Much like walking. My favorite destination is the porch roof right outside Isis’ bedroom.


ISIS: It’s scary to fly with David. I get dizzy. But if that weren’t the case and I didn’t need oxygen to breathe, I’d like to fly in space and touch the stars.


How do you see the future looking for you all with Isis now discovering what she is.. ? Creatura !


ALEZZANDER: I know not of what you speak. I believe you’ve been misinformed.


DAVID: Creatura do not exist.


NYX: (shrugs) I’ve never heard of that.




Does this scare you to not know what is in store for David (( Nyx and Alezzander ))


ALEZZANDER & NYX: Yes.


Some fun questions for all.


Fav song


DAVID: Too many and varied.


NYX: Gnossienne No. 1 by Eric Satie


ISIS: Anything by Green Day


ALEZZANDER: “Best Day Ever” by Spongebog Squarepants


(everyone turns to look at Alezzander with raised brows)




Fav colour


ISIS: Black


DAVID: Blue and Black




NYX: White and Gold


ALEZZANDER: Red


Last but not least - do you believe in destiny ?


ISIS: (nods) I do.


DAVID: I believe Isis is my destiny.


ALEZZANDER: Of course.


NYX: Yes.


Thanks for stopping by... Kat hands out chocolate chip biscuits for all.


NYX: (takes a bite) Mmmhh.. These are absolutely glorious!


ISIS: Oh, no thanks, I haven’t been feeling too well, lately.


DAVID: Thank you. You’re a wonderful host.


ALEZZANDER: (raises his hand) Thank you, but no.


(Everyone stands from their seat and extends their hand to their host, Ms. Katrina Whittaker)


ISIS: Ms. Whittaker, thank you very much for having us. I hope you’ll continue to follow our story since someone (glares at Alezzander) wouldn’t let us say much.


**Thanks heaps!


DAVID: The pleasure will always be ours, Ms. Whittaker. Thank you again.

It is in her dreams that Isis innocently stumbles upon the silent existence of the divine lineage of those that man has long forgotten.

In a quaint town, deep in south Texas, this story leads Isis onto the path of impermissible love and captivating life-changing truths. Isis Martin's
