Fantasy For Rebels – Rosemary A Johns




As REBEL VAMPIRES has its first birthday, it now has its own Official Fan Page!

I’ll be posting directly to Rebels there: excerpts, events, and exclusives.

Plus links to an closed readers group – Rosemary’s Rebels – as well.

Here is the last post:

Light discovers the horrifying truth…
‘There’s always something worse than dying, and there’s always someone in First or Blood Life who’ll find a way to inflict it. When I flicked my lighter, the flame jumped. For a moment, I was mesmerised. Then I bent down and lit the boiling flood…’

Come and follow the adventure into Blood Life on its Official Page!

ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY – Light’s Birthday!

‘What’s this, then?’ Light swaggers to the table, swiping his finger through the cream.

I smile. ‘It’s your birthday cake. Do you like the fangs?’

Light raises his eyebrow, as he slowly sucks the cream from his finger. ‘Couldn’t find any with cute vampires and bat wings?’

‘That’s sarcasm, right?’ I push him down into a chair.

‘Oi, mind the leathers.’ Light tilts his nut. ‘What’s all this in aid of then, luv?’

‘One year ago Blood Dragons was published. Rebel Vampires has been all around the world for a year: Blood Shackles and Blood Renegades too. Books, rock anthems, Rebel Gear clothes and accessories, and jewelry… It’s been a whirlwind.’

Whirlwind? We’re celebrating my election to Blood Life? Near death? Enslavement? Trial as a traitor..?’

‘Love. Heroic battles. Rebel Age!’

‘Enough said,’ Light grins, his fangs shooting out, as he bounces up, ‘let’s kick off this party. Where’s the Guinness?’

I grab a cold bottle of Guinness from underneath the table and pass it to Light; his eyes gleam. ‘Happy birthday, Light!’

FANTASY 0.99 SALE – Night Huntress Meets Interview with the Vampire!

Blood Renegades by Rosemary A Johns

Forgetting? Losing myself in the music? Dance? The feel of Sun’s lips – body – against mine was as good as the sweet opiate of blood.


Rebel Vampires Trilogy

Rebel Vampires Vampire book Rosemary A JohnsThe latest release in the REBEL VAMPIRES trilogy – BLOOD RENEGADES – is on Summer Sale until Sunday 6th!

Accused of being a traitor, Light’s offered a deal by his vampire interrogator: one secret a night.

The Rebel Range is expanding!

But what is Blood Life?

Blood Life is at the heart of REBEL VAMPIRES. First Lifers (humans) are chosen to be elected to Blood Life (vampires): only the best of each generation.

They’re elected to be thinkers, warriors, beauties and leaders.

We smell the true scent of you First Lifers. The bubbling emotions that are veined underneath, like gold in rock: the ambition of true leaders, unrecognised genius of thinkers and courage of warriors. Beauty is skin-deep, but we see it in the faces of the poor. In the capacity for love, rather than its cold cruelty.

Blood Life is the next step in evolution. A race of camouflaged predators who revel in the carnage and the flames.

Blood Life was no dark fairy-tale: it was hard science.

AUTHOR EXCLUSIVE READING TODAY – Three of the Best Author Readings

Today I’m LIVE with an exclusive READING of my latest release BLOOD RENEGADES in my Facebook Group ROSEMARY’S REBELS.

After the reading, there’ll be a Q and A session on the REBEL VAMPIRES series where – as always when I speak live – readers can ask me anything. Seriously. Now whether I answer..?

I love author readings: there’s a special connection between listening to an author read their own words and then having the chance to ask them about the book.

I read a series of fantasy flash fiction at a Women in Dark Fiction event at Oxford last year: the atmosphere was electric.

When I worked in the theater, there was nothing like the connection between audience and performer: when it’s your own words? It’s twice the buzz.

As a reader? I love the experience too. So below are Three of the Best Author Readings:



  1. Jack Kerouac On the Road: reads the last page to jazz. Magic. Listen here.
  2. James Baldwin Another Country: a novel that taught me a lot about the possibilities and power of language. Listen here.
  3. J.R.R Tolkien The Hobbit: hearing Tolkien describing Gollum and acting his voice? Special and never forgotten. Listen here.

Who are your favourite authors to listen to?

BLOOD DRAGONS SHORTLISTED – International Rubery Book Award


Fantasy Rebel announces that BLOOD DRAGONS has just been shortlisted for the prestigious INTERNATIONAL RUBERY BOOK AWARD!

‘When Light falls in love with Kathy, a human, he begins to understand that humans should not be treated as prey. This is not just a novel about vampires.  Its strength lies in its unsentimental tenderness. The book deals with the poignancy of losing someone to dementia movingly and sensitively.’ – International Rubery Book Award
