Hi there everyone. This is Author Anthony Avina. You know I share a lot of reviews, author interviews, blog tour posts and so much more on this website. Yet something I haven’t done a lot of that I need to start doing is sharing more of my own personal work.

Today I am happy to announce that the book I’ve been working on nonstop is now available for preorder!

When a snarky angel falls into her lap and her adopted sister disappears, Violet is forced into a new role: Huntress. But the deeper she’s dragged into this supernatural world, the more she struggles tosurvive.
On the run, Violet’ll have to rely on a sexy vampire geek, while facing off the harem boy angel threatening her sister. And there’s only one way she’ll win: by letting out the monster…

Vampires? Angels? All I know is they’re both bastards.
And I hunt bastards.
In the beginning, I made games about them. None of it was real, only play. I was human, after all, in a world of humans. At least, I reckoned so. The gamer and developer, lost in make-believe.
Until everything changed, and the monsters fell from above.
Except, they tasted of sugar and blood.
There are dark kisses that bruise your soul as well as your mouth. Kisses as soft as feathers. Light. Gentle. Kind. Whereas others blaze and burn to ash.
And then there are kisses that are a revelation.
As I drifted back towards the grey, once more out of the black, soft lips kissed mine.
The kiss didn’t bruise or burn but it was firm and possessive.
Until it wasn’t.
I bit hard. The bastard gasped, and the mouth pulled back. But not before a coppery sweet blood crescendo exploded; my tongue chased after heaven.
It’d been Rebel’s kiss…and blood.
The new, fluttering forces deep within me awoke and roared at the taste, claiming Rebel. Wanting him, even if I didn’t.
How had I lost control even of myself?
Then I blinked awake.
Rebel peered down at me, concerned. He stroked my arm, as he had when I’d first awoken; I reckon it soothed him more than me.
Rebel hadn’t chained me this time, only snapped steel handcuffs around my wrists.
Maybe he was experimenting with bondage techniques.
When Rebel leaned closer, I elbowed him — oomph — in the guts. ‘Congratulations, you’ve just made my List of Asses to Kick.’

A short, spine-tingling adventure with a surprise twist! That’s how this blogger would describe the story Murderous Little Darlings by John Hennessy.
This short story follows three siblings, all caught up in a web of intrigue as the eldest brother, Marcus, believes that they are vampires, destined to hunt and kill whomever they please. The middle child, Rocco, fought the urge to feed and turn, but ultimately lost as a result of his brother’s influence, leaving the youngest sister, Juliana, to fight Marcus for what is right and what is wrong. Yet the mystery of the story showcases that no one truly knows what is happening to these three innocent looking yet deadly children. Are the children merely suffering from a delusion, or are vampires truly walking among them?
While there were a few minor grammar and pacing issues in this first story, the overall theme, mystery and character development were highly intoxicating to read, and left me wanting more as the final pages finished. The first of a planned series, this is a story that needs to be delved into more, and that in my books is the true marks of a great story. This is worth the read, and I can’t wait to see the next installment in the A Tale of Vampires series. Be sure to get your copy of the book now!
Hello there everyone, I’m back with a character insight into one of my favorite protagonists, Jackson Stevenson, the lead character in my major series Nightmare Wars.
Jackson Stevenson was born the son of a major league baseball player and owner of a popular magazine turned entertainment company. He met the love of his life in high school, and became a part of successful rock band with his best friends, his sister and his wife. His luck was perfect, and he couldn’t have been happier. Unfortunately, Jackson came face to face with a side of the world he never knew existed. After getting attacked by a violent ex-boyfriend of his wife Bella, who had been killed in prison but had somehow come back to life, he remained in a coma, and when he awoke, he found out that the world had been overrun by supernatural forces.
Finding the world he knew gone and his family being a part of the few humans left that had formed a resistance to the supernatural army, Jackson went from a weak coma survivor to a natural leader. What I love about this character is that through him I was able to showcase the true meaning of being a monster. He struggled to overcome the darkness within him that had been building up throughout the novel to bridge the gap between the good supernatural creatures and the human resistance. He has taken the mantle of leader after being elected by his friends, family and fellow survivors, and after learning to accept some new aspects of his life, he has gone head to head with some of histories most notorious monsters, including Dracula, known in this series as Dalca, and the original werewolf.
Thanks for checking out this character study. Tune in for more insights into my characters.
All hell broke loose on The Strain, FX’s hit horror series, as night descended on Manhattan and the infection spread further among the populace.
