Black Friday (with Vampires)

Black Friday is HERE. My Vampire family has already made the trip to Costco, and found the perfect Christmas tree. Upon arriving home, and arranging my lovely red flowers (from Costco) in a crystal vase, I ordered a vacuum cleaner for one of the kids to take back to the Southern California apartment, and the perfect Christmas Tree stand for pick up tomorrow morning. I suggest just making a day of it on Saturday and going to the movies while we’re out. We were thinking of “Knives Out.” I’m tired of movies non-dancing men in tights and an explosion every fifteen seconds.

Thanksgiving was lovely and I hope you all are getting over the warm glow of a happy day with plenty of good food and good company. Or in the case of Vampires a nice chill.

December, which starts tomorrow also means a BIG MONTH here at vampiremaman.com!

I’ll be posting twenty posts from the Vampire Maman Christmas archives. I will also be adding new stories, musings, opinions, and whatnots. You’ll also hear about the latest Yule time Vampire, Ghost, and Werewolf shenanigans.

If you’re feeling  like some holiday reading by the fire, or curled up in any favorite spot do I have news for you.

The best holiday tales since Charles Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol are available now.

The new Holiday Classics Tinsel Tales 1 & 2 are going to be offered FREE on the following days:

Tinsel Tales:
December 1-2, and December 24, 25, 26.

Tinsel Tales 2: Holiday Hootenanny:
December 8-9 and December 24, 25, 26.

YES – Free Kindle download on those dates.

 

The end of the year holiday season is here. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, then on to a new year with even MORE holidays.

Both books are great for someone wanting a quick fix, a new tradition, or just a damn good story. Did I mention cheap thrills? The paperback versions (not free unfortunately) fit nicely into most purses and a lot of pockets.

These holiday anthologies are from the creative minds of WPaD (Writers, Poets, and Deviants.) Proceeds to to MS Research to help support our fellow writers and friends who have MS.

Some of the new December posts at Vampire Maman will include:

  • Dealing with your empty nest over the holidays
  • What we’re talking about
  • Vlad’s Vampire Diary
  • More from the Warlock Druce and his friend Morcant the Selkie
  • Austin, Grammy, and other assorted fruitcakes
  • Some Christmas romance
  • Tellias and Eleora celebrate as only ancient Vampires can
  • Deck the halls, bookmark this blog, and get ready for Christmas fun
  • And of course a lot more!

 

Sending good cheer and good stories for all!

Share a blog – there is always enough for everyone!

I write an odd little blog. 

I also read blogs. Not because I’m obligated to but because I enjoy the blogs I read. In fact, I look forward to posts on my favorite blogs.

The subject matter varies from cats to cooking, Vampires to verse, politics to play, musings and music, fiction and fact, weirdness to wonder, squirrels to stars, from dogs to dreams. I could go through the entire alphabet quite a few times with this game. Some of the blogs are so unique that it still amazed me at how creative and wonderful it all is. Nobody else is doing what these bloggers are doing. Nobody. That, is why I like them. And other are doing something more mainstream but doing it in a wonderful way. So enough of this love letter…

Recently I went poking around my favorite WordPress bloggers and found out that a lot of them had rather modest followings.

That surprised me because I love those blogs. The authors are smart and funny. If they aren’t funny they’re still smart and thoughtful. Best of all these I learn things from these blogs, even if it just learning a bit about myself (from my reaction.)

Extra bonus: some of the bloggers I read are insanely talented.

There are THOUSANDS of people out there who would love these blogs and are missing out. We can’t let that happen anymore.

So what am I asking from you?

Support the blogs you read. It won’t cost you a penny. All I’m asking you to do is to spread the word.

If you enjoy a blog and want to be enjoying it a year from now please do one or more of the following items:

  • Tell your friends to read it. SHARE.
  • Share it on Facebook with a witty comment on why you’re sharing it.
  • Share it on Twitter.
  • Share on all blog sites (I have friends who have blogs on several different blog servers.)
  • Share it on all of your social media outlets.
  • Share it on WordPress (reblog or add a link to one of your posts)
  • Tell the nice folks at WordPress that you like the blog and suggest they highlight the author in one of their articles or put it on Freshly Pressed.
  • Tell your mom and she’ll tell her friends.
  • Tell the ex-boyfriend. You know the one who never got over you and still hangs on every word you say and everything you do. He’d do anything for you. Tell him.
  • Drop blog names at parties. You’ll sound so smart. Write it on a cocktail napkin.
  • Tell your friends.
  • Share posts you like with your reading and writing groups.
  • Share posts you like with all of your other online groups.
  • Just share. If you like it share it.
  • But never SPAM a blog. Be polite. Share nicely.
  • Tell your friends.

Unlike cake, chocolate and a nice bottle of wine – when you share a blog there is always enough for everyone.

Most of us bloggers aren’t getting paid for writing all of the unique content you expect from us. We’re doing it because we love to.  We have something to share.  And we’re happy if in turn you share what we’ve shared.
