When I was in college, I read my first vampire novel, Interview with a Vampire by Anne Rice. In her series, she talks about vampire cults that are always looming in the background ready to pounce or deal out justice. I became so interested in those vampire cults I started wondering what their religious practices might be. Were their beliefs based on Christianity and the bible? Or were they more occult-based? What would their ceremonies be like? What would be their reasoning behind killing the guilty, drinking blood, and making others of their kind?
I became immersed in the ritual of it all. I wrote ceremonies and prayers and doctrines of faith. And a vampire cult was born. Just that pebble of an idea from Rice’s tales led me to create my own world and religion.
My point to all this is…explore ideas you might not think will lead to anything. Let yourself write ramblings with no purpose (you think) or make up lists or organizations. You never know when they may be the spark that starts your first book.
Heaven has opened up and welcomed the vampires of Night’s Knights into a new reality. As they struggle to find their place in their new world, trouble brews on Earth.
Demon servant, Ridge, is causing havoc by gathering up all the souls on Earth that have been touched by immortality. When he injures one of the Night’s Knights crew, he launches a war between the vampires of Heaven, the Big Bad in Hell, and a mortal street gang of vigilante misfits.
Will Julien, Markham, and Reidar be able to defeat the evil that’s returned, or will they once again need Jespa’s help?
