Chapter 2…kinda

Kiss of Death-50percentWell, I was planning to blog a little bit today about Chapter 2 of Coming Home – you know, how it was going, what I’d written so far, etc. One problem with that: I haven’t started it yet! I feel like a naughty child confessing to something…well, naughty.

Rest assured, I will finish Chapter 2 this weekend – but it might be a busy weekend!

I’ve had a lot on though…I uploaded the new women’s safety section on my website – important tips in there, so make sure you read it and keep safe! I also uploaded the first chapter in Coming Home and the questions for Chapter 2. Then things kinda stalled.

I also received my author advance copies of the Aussie version of Kiss of Death and I’m running a couple of competitions for Aussie and NZ readers – one for my web subscribers and one at my Facebook page.

Plus I’ve decided on the topic/character for my next book (after Coming Home) and it’s NOT a Sophie book. I know, big news. More on my next project later – much later.

But for now I want to leave you with a safety tip: Be hyperaware of your surroundings and actions when in parking lots – it’s one of the places women are most likely to be sexually assaulted.

Tips for parking lots
When you park your car in a lot, park it near the entrance/exit and when you’re making your way to your car, have your keys out and ready. Don’t walk across the lot rummaging through your bag or on your mobile/cell phone. Instead, give your surroundings 100% of your attention. If a van is parked next to your car on the driver’s side, you may want to enter your car through the passenger side. Offenders have been known to snatch women and throw them in a neighbouring van – for the offender, it’s quick and easy. See my safety tips for how to stay safe while getting into your car, while in your car, and other car-related safety tips.

  1. Hi,

    The Vampire personality is clearly by definition at least a sociopathic one and in pure terms a psychopath. The vampire is totally self centered, enjoys using people for ultimate ic means and has no empathy for people.

    People who think they are vampires therefore have this as a key aspect of their personality and therefore people to be avoided as if you are not ‘one of them’ they will toy with you, play with your emotions, manipulate you and destroy your life. Keep away from them. The ‘blood’ issue isn’t the main thing that drives them, its their fantasy of ultimate superiority over people as ‘lessor beings’ to be used by them as they see fit.

    Also the very sad thing is that people with these sociopathic and psychpathic behavior, have a terrible sense of self loathing, lack an ability to feel normal life pleasures, other than enjoying other people suffering physically and emotionally. They are very ‘unwell’ people and most frequently have a chronic poorly treated mental illness who are really reaching out for help but not getting it. They suffer immensely inside and due to their poorly treated mental illness create and re-enforce their delusion of actually being vampires in order to survive as it gives them their only purpose for living.

    They live very unhealthy lifestyles, which only excacerbates their mental illness and their life spans can (ironically !) be a lot shorter than the average, due to very ic lifestyles where long term consequences are not even considered due to their short term obsession to gain pleasure from feeling excessively superior over others.

    There are also Vampire s that draw these people in, taking money from them and exploiting them to ‘study’ to become Vampire priests’. While others think this is funny and ‘interesting’ and perhaps only a strong ‘hobby’ for these people, it isnt – these people take the whole issue very seriously and really DO think, sadly, because of their poorly treated mental illness, that they actually ARE vampires.
