Years ago I searched online for Harry Potter fan art. We only had three movies but more books and I was dying to see images of those great book scenes that had not yet been captured on film. As I saved tons of drawings for my collection a silly thought crossed my mind.

What if someday aspiring artists created masterpieces of my books? I knew it was far off because after all, I was still massively editing book 1.

Guess what? That day has arrived! The following are two great pieces from Elizabeth Hansen.


Thank you so much Elizabeth!

Bite of Story Thursday


Chapter Twenty-One

“Of all the stupid, selfish things to say.” Annabelle exclaimed as she passed back and forth on the carpet back in their apartment. Thomas smiled.

She turned to him and gave a look that would frost his heart, “What?”

He smirked despite the apparent danger of annoying a passionate vampire child. “You knew that was going to be his response didn’t you?”

She flopped down in a chair and sighed loudly. “Yes. I did. Just once I’d like to get a straight answer from that man. Just once.”

“I know, Ann. Believe me I know.”

“Come, let’s go find something warm and juicy. I need to drown my sorrows.”


Dark Tribulations is due next year. More info as things develop.

This is the closest I have to a pic of them.
artist:(if you know the artist, please let me know so I can credit him or her).

Elizabeth Báthory, Roxana Dawn and Penelope Chesterfield.

Their mission is to watch over Domi's interests and keep an eye on the Seven Tyrant Lords.

Elizabeth Báthory:

Other names:
Elizabeth Báthory: Báthory Erzsébet in Hungarian, Alžbeta Bátoriová in Slovak, Blood Countess, Blood Queen, Lady of the House of Domi, Head Bride, Countess Dracula.

Name origin:
Anglicized form of Greek Elisabet, meaning "God is my oath."

Physical characteristics:
Dark hair, pale complexion, commanding presence. Posses a regal air. She’s strong, powerful, constantly in control.

Typical vampire abilities:
She possesses the abilities of all vampires. This means she is faster and stronger than humans, her senses are extremely acute as are her reflexes. She can fly, turn into a bat, wolf, rat and mist. She can also mesmerize humans.

Special abilities:
Her typical vampiric abilities seem more refined. She's a master at all of them, perhaps due to her personal training by Dominic. The various servents under Domi share rumors that she might be as powerful as the master.

Known History:
Domi warped the mind of Elizabeth Báthory, followed her as she grew up, spoke to her in secret. She fell in love with him. Completely devoted. She wanted to become one of his Three Queens (Brides of Dracula). He demanded she marry for political reasons to another mortal.

At age 35 he finally turned her after she gave him a present, the constant supply of young maidens from her land. She forced others to help her kill over 650 victims. She’d bathe in their blood as well as drink it. She was psychotic, thanks to Domi’s constant influence. Grateful for her “gifts”, Domi turned her in secret.

As punishment for her crimes, the mortals imprisoned in her home, Csejte Castle. She was bricked within a set of rooms. Domi faked her death. Allowing her to secretly escape in the night. He trained her in every skill. She is the closet he has ever loved anyone.

She became is Head Bride and rules by his side to this day. Serves him faithfully, watching over the Seven Generals, making sure they don’t betray Dominic.
