The second book in the series – Blood Shackles is out now:

blood-shackles-being-read“When Light is captured, he refuses to lose himself, despite how his captors try to break his spirit. Being sold to Grayse is the ticket he needs out of his cell, even though her father owns the company that enslaves him… Blood Shackles is brutally honest, tragic, triumphant, addictive and somehow hopeful… Johns succeeded in creating a world, characters, and a story that pulled me in until I had to finish reading it… This is a novel everyone should read, along with Blood Dragons” – Readers’ Favorite 5*

It’s a dangerous game to love your slave. When your whole species is enslaved – and it’s the humans who are acting like the monsters – how far would you go to free your family?

Time to break out of the chocolate, crank up the Nirvana and… start typing. Because I’ve finished the first draft of Blood Renegades: the third volume in the Rebel Vampires series. By hand. So now? There’ll be some busy fingers over the keyboard.

Blood Dragons is a story of love. Blood Shackles family. Blood Renegades? Is a story about home.

Title From My First Draft

Blood Renegades is released in June.

Light has only two weeks to give his witness, on trial for his life for being a ‘Renegade’, before he’s burnt at the stake.

The Renegades are the terrorists of the Blood Lifer world. They’re dedicated to hunting down human slavers, just as they’re hunted by the ruthless Blood Life Council, who believe their leader is…Light.

Here’s a sneak peek at the first line:

‘Betrayal. Death. Hope. Isn’t that how all truly great stories start?’

And if you want to start this ‘great story’ at the beginning before Blood Renegades comes out?

HALLOWEEN CONTEST – Who Believes in the Paranormal?


Halloween. Just around the corner. Enticing us with parties, pumpkins…and killer clowns. Oh, and the Halloween Sale of Blood Dragons. Only 0.99… I’d make a spooky price joke here but…I’m still caught up on the clown thought. Blame reading It at too tender an age.

I also opened the Official Bloody Halloweenfest on Friday, kicking off three days of contests, reveals, giveaways, excerpts and dark fun. Have a look here

believe-braceletI held a Halloween Contest to win a handcrafted BELIEVE bracelet. Entrants had to answer this: Mulder always wanted to believe… On Halloween, in what do you want to believe? Vampires or werewolves? Witches… or kick-ass superpowers to take on the undead? What do you believe – all right, wish, walks the same streets as us humans?

I was blown away by the answers – insightful, funny and passionate about the paranormal… Yeah, I struggled to pick a winner.

It looks like we want to believe in vampires, werewolves, shifters, witches, magic and the thin veil dividing our worlds… to mention just a few. Read the brilliant responses here

And the winner? The handcrafted BELIEVE BRACELET goes to: Veronica Vasquez

Here’s what Veronica believed in…

‘Witches, vampires, werewolves, dragons, shifters, fae, and all sorts of beings that I can’t even imagine! I’d like to believe there is a secret magical world out there, as ours has so many problems, and that one day the magical world and out world will combine and it will heal so many of the problems with society today! I believe!’

Congratulations and respect!
