Tina FriscoThe Scribbler is happy to have Tina Frisco return as a guest this week. She lives in California and is a very generous participant, not only in sharing her thoughts about her own writing as well as advice on being an author. She is a relentless promoter of other authors as well.

This is Tina’s second visit to SBS. She talks about her latest work and shares an excerpt from her novel, Vampyrie. Her first visit can be seen here.

Her links are below.


First let me say that Vampyrie is not your typical vampire novel. It’s Vampyrie: Origin of the Vampirebased in science and brings the myth of the vampire into the realm of possibility. Although Vampyrie is not part of a series, two primary characters from my first novel, Plateau, play major roles. In this excerpt, Phoebe, the protagonist in Vampyrie, has just met one of these characters in the catacombs. W’Hyani has told Phoebe that she’s there looking for her mate who didn’t return home to their village after his vision quest. Phoebe is in the catacombs searching for two of her friends who went missing. She’s sure they were abducted and brought to this infernal domain. Coming from two different cultures, Phoebe and W’Hyani had a bit of an awkward introduction; but the gifts they exchanged and their common goal quickly united them.

Phoebe and W’Hyani walked stealthily side by side, each keeping close to the tunnel wall and holding her torch in her outer hand. It seemed they’d been walking forever with no end in sight.

“It can’t be much farther,” Phoebe whispered.

“Look; a forked tongue.” W’Hyani pointed up ahead. “We have been walking in a circle.”

“Are you sure?”

fire-allan-hudson-sbs“I am certain. Follow me and I will show you.” They hadn’t walked five yards when she extended her torch to the right. “Do you see? It is the other side of the passage.”

Hoping W’Hyani was wrong, Phoebe walked a few more yards and stepped into the same large open area from where she’d started. “Damn it!” She clamped her hand over her mouth. Cursing doesn’t lend itself to whispering.

“We have taken the wrong path. We must now walk into the wind.”

Feeling a cool breeze blowing from the west arm of the main tunnel, Phoebe assumed it was the direction to which W’Hyani referred. It also was the direction she should have taken instead of diverting to the smaller passage.South Branch Scribbler

W’Hyani laid her torch on the ground and turned toward Phoebe.

“Give to me the feather. You must wear it. It will give you much

  1. Hi Tina – I jumped over to read the rest of the post, but I couldn’t get past the captcha to post a comment there, so I came back here.

    I just had to tell you that, although I don’t normally read Vampire-type books, THIS one is definitely on my list. Any excerpt that can grab my attention and make my heart pound will always inspire me to want more.

    Now, if you could somehow give me a few extra hours in the day, I’d get to it a whole lot faster. Great post.

    1. Oh Madelyn, what I wouldn’t give for a few more hours in the day! My TBR has toppled over more times than I can count. I’ve decided to accept that everything happens in its own time and to be at peace with that. Thank you for the kudos on my excerpt ~ a lovely thought with which to sign off for the night. xx

  3. Loved the excerpt T, and nice to see the connection with W’Hyani from your other book and now Phoebe. Look forward to reading this rather different for me book soon. You know I’m a fan of your writing! ❤

    1. I’ll mention that to Allan, Tess. Thanks for the kudos. As to our TBRs … they’re all crammed full! Mine has toppled over several times. I’m viewing it as a lesson in patience for reader/reviewer as well as author. 🙂 ❤ ❤
