The Vampire Family Lives On...

Canadian epublisher Muse it Up Publishing began FATE and FANGS, Tales from the Vampire Family as told by Professor A. James
in August 2011 with Love: Ann and the Viking and continued through the fall with Punishment: Lilith's Trials and Struggle: Elizabeth in America. Ironically, and somewhat fittingly, Thanksgiving saw the release of Debauchery: Victoria's Burning and Lust: James at the Sundowner followed in December.   The 7 book series concludes in February 2012 after Humanity: A Letter from Gaston and Resurrection: Stephanie After the Lilithan- suffice to say, we have plenty to sink your teeth into!



 1. Love: Ann and the Viking - In this medieval tale, scorned vampire mistress Ann leaves vampire family patriarch Antonio behind, travels across Britain, and encounters a wayward Viking named Eric.  Will Ann accept her true vampiric nature and turn her Nordic lover into a vampire?    

 2. Punishment: Lilith's Trials - In this bizarre and seemingly anonymous tale, beautiful vampire nemesis Lilith suffers plenty at the delight of her mysterious and demonic tormentor. 

 3. Struggle: Elizabeth in America - Seeking solace and solitude from her unhappy home life as the unloved wife of Antonio, Elizabeth travels to colonial America.  On the outskirts of civilization, she meets Rain, a young Kiowa warrior on a vision quest.  Will his lack of fear and gripping hothouse experience help Elizabeth’s face the vampire truths she sought to escape? 

 4. Debauchery: Victoria's Burning - Victoria uses the fallout from the American Civil War to her advantage-or so the beautiful but deadly blockade-runner hopes.  After all her using, abusing, and feedings, Victoria’s slaves finally take matters into their own hands, forcing Antonio’s daughter to face her own mortality. 

 5. Lust: James at the Sundowner - The Sundowner offers steamy Welshire vampires Jessica, Pamela, and Slava for underground vampire sex and biting fetishes, but Victoria’s twin brother James is content with his gig as piano player at the club owned by their brother Stephen.  James’ own love Catrina is the alluring singer at there, but can he keep his longtime vampire companion away from the tempting, exciting young clientele?  

 6. Humanity: A Letter from Gaston - Gaston is trying to move on with his life now that the Vampire Family has been is human again.  Unfortunately, his sister Victoria cannot cope with the change and succumbs to drugs, depression, and sex binges with her former fledgling Caine.  When Gaston looses his job over Victoria’s suicide attempt, their pregnant sister Samantha comes to London to help-making a journey that could be disastrous to her unborn children. 

7.  Resurrection: Stephanie after the Lilithan - Former Lilithan vampire and newly divorced scientist Stephanie can’t get over how much she misses being a vampire.  After a harrowing car accident, she meets Mestiphles, the giver and taker of vampire power on both sides of the coven wars.  His charm and seductive powers sweeten the demonic offer he extends, but will Stephanie accept?

Read On at last...

Forward by Professor A. James

In 1975 I acquired a collection of antique, but damaged manuscripts after a mysterious fire beguiled the dim British authorities for four years.  Somewhere along the frontier between England and Wales, in a crumbled vault beneath a burned mansion; dozens of leather bound journals, diaries, and books were rescued.  Their contents were fantastical: histories, ages of vampiric accounts, coven wars, and abstract chronicles. The police, of course, uneducated in such matters of the occult or the unexplained, found the material rubbish against their modern case in need of evidence and forensics.

Fortunately, in my subsequent studies and adventures, I have found that truth is indeed stranger than fiction. You must forgive me the cliché, but my analysis and preservation of these personal antiquities has brought me to new heights of bizarrity, both on the page and in the flesh.  I thought I was a wise, aware professor knowing beyond the day-to-day world before I came to read of this twisted Vampire Family.   My pride was in err. 

After several lengthy years of study and a very slow restoration process on the oldest documents, I succumbed to an offer of assistance from a student named Theodore Plunkett.  A scholar of ancient languages, Theodore’s detailed list of degrees and credentials were too numerous for his youthful appearance.  His intelligence was vast; yet he was a personal master at comprehending and restoring the fantastic tales of Antonio Welshire and his mad family’s descent into the dark world of vampirism.  From patriarch Antonio’s brutal human days to the coven’s near destruction by the rival Lilithan vampires and the ambiguous Mestiphles’ meddling appearances and disappearances; this Vampire Family’s history is very well documented through some centuries and bare and bleak in others. Some journals are utterly disturbing in their tales of blood and mayhem while other diaries are strangely heartfelt, bittersweet, and uncomfortably endearing.  

The fire that brought these texts into my possession was education blessing enough-the lifetime epitome of Tut and Troy to most scholars.  Some library men would be content to sit behind their musky parchments and read the decades away.  I, however, have had the unique privilege of authenticating these documents as truth.  Of course, that wasn’t until many years later; when Theodore arrived at my office door looking as young as the day we first met.  On the plane to Philadelphia, I never suspected I would arrive at the doorstep of sisters Samantha and Victoria Welshire.  I had read over five hundred years of their tall tales; yet here the startling beauties were, living and breathing before me fangs and all.  Only then did I begin to realize the full extent of this familial coven.  

The academic community may disagree with my claims; but this dark, sensational and unbelievable underground lifestyle has afforded me considerable gains.  Today I live a quiet life among the Welshires, and their vast knowledge of history and the world has blessed me intellectually as well as financially.  In this simple, ignorant time obsessed with youthfulness and beauty, I’ve seen immortal creatures age, know love, feel pain-even die and regain their humanity.  I myself have been able to change; embracing surgeries and procedures I would not have considered before coming to know the Welshires.  With no evil or nefarious means, this vampire knowledge and power has made me a new man inside out.  It’s something I could never have fathomed before these burned books first came my way.  

Through the course of this manuscript, you will find my notes introducing the strange tales included in this volume.  There are several more stories left to be discovered; however, those are largely damaged chronicles, with significant portions unaccounted for or degraded beyond interpretation.  Those presented here are in the best condition possible and have been least corrupted through time and calamity.  

You should be familiar with most of the players, as the Welshire coven’s deeds have been thoroughly documented elsewhere.  These accounts from Ann, Victoria, and Stephanie, among others, are much more personal, individual, and largely first person accounts.  Some are sad, a few are very enchanting and lovely, and there are some that I personally find repulsive and frightening.  Living with and documenting the Vampire Family has not blinded me from their awesome powers and need for the very fringes of human society.  Read of the Vampire Family, delight in their written escapades even, but nevertheless learn from the error of their ways.  Not all of them are so charming and accepting of the human condition.  Remember what you’ve read and will read: most of them will do anything to protect their nocturnal inclinations. 

From the past to the present, from near to far and wide, you may think these tales are all fiction, born of the imagination.  Unfortunately, they are indeed truth and based in a frightening reality as firm as you or I.
