Welcome to the new and re-vamped Vampire Boys Of Summer. This web serial is planned to run from January to Summer, with regular weekly and/or bi-weekly episodes. Here on this page you will find links to all the episodes as they are posted and is designed to help you easily find your place in case you miss a chapter or so. Each of these episodes will run from 750 to 1500 words, so you can have some quick bite-sized reading for your day.
What is Vampire Boys Of Summer anyway?
Vampire Boys Of Summer is a serialized novel telling the adventures of 16 yr old Nora Williams, as she goes through all sorts of teen issues including bullying, dating, cutting, absent parents, and of course every girl’s favorite problem…vampires. When her new Japanese neighbors also turn out to be a vampire clan, she finds herself caught up in a whirlwind of romance, danger, and murder. It’s only a week until summer vacation, but things are really heating up in Chelsea Valley. Follow the serial as Nora clues us into what’s going on….
So what is the re-vamp?
Vampire Boys Of Summer began its life on this blog after my wife and I were having a marathon of vampire anime shows. Because I truly enjoy writing for her I thought I’d try my hand at the vampire thing and incorporate anime and manga influences, my love for Japanese rock, as well as some humor and romance to create something I was hoping would be seen as unique. I changed some of the popular vampire rules (I hear the hissing of vamp purists) and created a back story for my characters (which won’t be revealed for quite some time I’m afraid) in my literary attempts. I was going pretty good with over twenty chapters when I hit a brick wall. No matter what I tried I just couldn’t get in the groove and pick up the thread to finish the tale.
So, here we go with a revamp, a basic re-editing with additional details added to flesh out the scenes better and add more depth to the different characters. In some places the addition could be an extra paragraph, in others just a matter of sentences, but I’m hoping this time around the story will flow better and create a smooth serial to carry us through to summer. The chapters have been retitled and restructured, and though there will be more chapters, or episodes, this time around, they will be shorter and hopefully quicker and more appealing to read.
If you have read the original, I hope this will add more to your experience of the story, and if you’re new to it, then welcome aboard, you are just in time. Feel free to comment on any aspect of the story, good or bad. Constructive Critique is always welcome. And if you don’t mind, give us a like if you enjoy an episode. I like them little likeys 😉
Okay then, let’s join Nora and see what’s happening in Chelsea Valley…
