You never know where the Vampire Hadley Price will show up

From the desk of W. J. Onufer…

Hadley Price is a Vampire woman with a mind of her own. As the author of the Tales of the Vampire Hadley Price books, she allows me to tag along as her offical scribe, to tell you about her adventures. I have no illusions that I, in any way, control her. As a result, there are times when she goes off without telling me. You never know where the Vampire Hadley Price will show up.

There’s a very exciting project in production right now and Hadley’s involved. It’s in a medium other than in the pages of her books. I don’t mean to be a tease about this (well, maybe a little) but I can’t say anything more about that at this time. When it’s released- and that will be soon -I’ll let you know.  Or more specifically, Hadley’ll inform me, then I’ll pass that along to you.

In other news- I just finished the first draft of the next Tales of the Vampire novel a few days ago and have sent that to my Editor, Christine Piesyk. Any author will be tell you that there is a huge sense of acomplishment in getting the first draft of a book done. Any author will also tell you that the calmness of that satisfaction is soon replaced by the storm of the editing process. I’m preparing myself for the doses of humility that Christine takes great delight in giving me in that.

I’ve also been communicating with my cover artist, Keith Wood. He and I are well beyond the half-way point of what that next book’s cover will look like.

But all of that is something you’ll see when that book comes out in a time frame that we project to be something in the order of a year to year and half from now.

For now, Hadley’s new book, Torch, is available to satisfy all your Vampire reading desires. Get your copy, in paper book or ebook, by click on the link here.

And as far as Hadley showing up elsewhere? Stay tuned for more info on that exciting new project I told you about. When you find out what that is, it’ll be worth going through all this tease.


A Variation on Murphy’s Law

From the desk of W. J. Onufer…

A variation on Murphy’s Law is everywhere. I’ll go a few days, maybe as much as a week with little or no communication with people. Then, all of a sudden, everyone wants to talk with me. I’ll be in the middle of a Skype with someone, then Facebook PM pops ups. Then a second PM from someone else, at the same time. I excuse myself from that Skype to manage those two PMs. And as I’m doing that, my cell pings with a text message. Then, a couple minutes later, it’s rings for a phone convo. Seconds later, I get a prompt telling me I just recieved an important email. Now obviously, the way to manage such things is to prioritize. Which, of all these comunications is most time-sensitive? Which of these people most demand my attention?

As the author of the Tales of the Vampire Hadley Price books, I always have various projects happening. And those projects involve the creative input of other people- all of whom are important to me. But when I get his tidal wave of communications, they’re all those important people.They each have priority in the big picture, but they’re all collectively coming at me at the same time. I’m grateful to have such people in my life and I try my best to give each individual my undivided attention. And hope to receive the same from them. But sometimes Murphy has other plans.

This also applies to people in my personal life, people who have no association with any Hadley Projects. They too join that tidal wave of communication. You never know just how many devices you have until they beep, cherp, ring or prompt- all at the same time.

Has this happened to you? Have you ever been presented with such a Murphy senario? If so, how do you deal with it?

Torch- The new Tales of the Vampire Hadley Price novel by W. J. Onufer

From the desk of W. J. Onufer…

Torch, the new Tales of the Vampire Hadley Price novel is now out on ebook. The paper back version, however, has been delayed. I won’t go into detail except to say that my team and I have been dealing with not just one, but two last minute technical problems. They may be last minute, but they’re taking some what more time than that to fix. And when those issues are resolved, we’ll let you know when you can get a paperback copy of Torch of your very own.

In the mean time, what’s a author to do? There’s no rest- as they they say  -for the wicked. There’s always something to do here at Tales of the Vampire Hadley price. In my wait for all the techie stuff to be fixed on Torch, I’ve been working on the the next Tales of the Vampire Hadley Price book. I’m making significant progress on that. I should have a fist draft done in a month or so. And the title of that book- that comes out after Torch -will, for the time being, be my little secret. Stay tuned for a revelation of that title, at some point in the future and the release date- which should be sometime toward the end of next year.

But for now, Torch is coming your way. It will, that is, when all the techcial stuff is fixed- which should be soon.

As I’ve said, the ebook of Torch is now available. You can get that here:
