NEW CHAPTER UP ON WATTPAD!!
Chapter 14: Destiny’s Entry (an excerpt):
I cannot be certain of the timetable I will account here; decades have passed that seem as eons, while others seem as days.
It was Haŋhépi-Wi who woke me. She is who the Englishmen have named the moon. She bled for me the night I was called from death and replaced my soul with a thirst for only her. I have learned from the sciences of pragmatic men that the Blood Moon is simply a trick of light, a shadow cast by Maka – the Earth – that discolours her through human eyes. But my eyes are no longer human. What I saw upon digging myself from the earth was no shadow or trick of light. It was visceral and dark, fluid and entrancing. Haŋhépi-Wi had torn her face from her bones and exposed her true beauty to me, her true desire… She whispered words in my tongue, words that spoke of prowess and the Hunt. She promised me I would know no pain save for that of her thirst – her desire. She told me I must drink of it to be free, and the more I would drink the closer to her I would become. She said to me I could become a Great Spirit such as she, that of what Englishmen might call a god.
So this is an entry from a vampire journal that my main character Conrad was asked to look into. For those who are not familiar with the story (which is all of you…) This isn’t how the whole story is written – the book is more of an urban fantasy/comedy that would appeal to readers from about 14-40 (although I’m sure the book community would say it’s inappropriate for kids under 18…). This is just our first look into the actual journals within the story that start to tie the overall plot together. So get your #quarantinereads on for free on Wattpad by following along with this one as I write it. Let me know if you find any typos, have difficulty reading a sentence, or just, of course, like what you read. Many thanks, my tumblr regime. Stay safe and stay clean. -z/cm –>> CORWYN MATTHEW ON WATTPAD <<–

Chapter 12: Mystery Man (an excerpt) –
I see his eyes before I see
his teeth. I see his horns before I see his pointy jaw and sharp shoulders. I
see the burning tip of his tail before I see the slicing-black of his claws,
then the coarse rash of his demon skin wrapped around the bones of his fingers,
scaling up his wiry musculature to meet a vile snigger as diabolical a thing as
I’ve ever seen.
This creature adorns the
shadows behind my family like a second skin – then the fire dies at the cry of
the wind, scattering its kindling in a frantic hurricane that circles the
enclosure once before shooting from its top and taking its light with it…

Images I came across while searching for one to add to my newest chapter of The Journals of a Vampire Scribe on wattpad. Creep on over and check the story out here –> Corwyn Matthew <– It’s a comical dark fantasy adventure with a bit of a “teen” feel to it, but not at all written in a Young Adult format. Goofy and fun, tho. Give it a glimpse and let me know what you think. -z

1294 words tap-tap-tapped into my goofy vamp comedy novel this morning, topping of chapter 9 with a fun little cab ride twist. I’ll probably upload chapter seven Wednesday-ish for those rioting hordes of you out there looking forward to new my material. lol… Stay tuned =P –> The Journals of a Vampire Scribe <– -z/cm

Seeing a theme here? *thinking-face emoji* I was searching for an image to describe the back story revealed in Chapter 4:Family Secrets of my vampire comedy/fantasy on wattpad. Checkout the story and what image I settled on here –> Corwyn Matthew. \m/
Some images I’ve found to help describe the first three chaps of my vampire fantasy/comedy.I just topped off chapter 7 today, my dudes. I have 4 parts uploaded to Wattpad now. Get in on it –> The Journals of a Vampire Scribe <-
That second image inspired the character in the story a lot. I had already created her, and was looking for an image to use to describe her, then I came across this one and the heterochromia (2 different eyes) really nailed it for me. It was perfect for my character and what she is so I updated the story to match.
The third is art from one of my all-time favs, Elena Sai, and I’m sure I already had it in my archives but just happened across it again and was like, “Yes. That’s perfect.” I had already written the scene with her cataract eyes so didn’t have to change a thing. It just fit right in like it always belonged. -z/cm
A collection of the images I’ve used (so far) to tell the story of Blood Magik: A Cold Day in Hell on –> Wattpad.
So here’s the skinny:
Currently my ass is giving the novel an upgrade, chapter by chapter, to bring the beastly bitch up to my standards as the writer I am today. I wasn’t comfortable with, say, releasing the book nationally in the state I’d first published it in. It was loads better than how it was originally but, after two years of editing the bastard, I came to a point where I was burnt out and just said, “fuck it, close enough.” But now, about a year later, not only am I a better writer, but I’ve put enough distance between me and it to come back refreshed and with a creative vengeance.
I’m gonna put out a new edition in (or around) August. It’’ll be a Print On Demand book (through Amazon) but will be a unique, artistic, Second Printing. More on that later. For now I just wanted to throw the heads up out there because when I put that book out, the original will go up to full price and, even tho it will be shitty in comparison to the new edition, it’ll be even more of a collectible than it already is (being a Pure Art edition and limited to 500), Especially for those looking to be writers themselves, or who are writers and are looking to learn from others mistakes/experiences. (You could read the original, for example, and any time you come across an awkward or mediocre sentence, look to the new edition to see the changes made. There are a lot of them o.o). The full price of the collectible edition is $24 but is on sale now for $15 on BloodMagik.com
So get yours now while the gettin is nice and gooey, my dudes (idk…), because the New Edition is in the making. \m/ -z/cm
(oh, and that second-to-last image is a sneak-peek of the art for Book Two: The Reigning Dead. Not the background, but the character. I cut her out of the cover and pasted it on that image because there’s a scene in the last part of that chapter that it resembles. The full cover is fucking gorgeous shit from my man, Lucio Parrillo.)
