New character revel...

So I'm ass deep in book three of the vampire manifesto and I just created:

 *attention this is a motherfucking spoiler warning bitches*

No other then Connors daughter!

I just wrote the page where she is introduced today! Her name is Josephine Gabrielle. She'll be a major character in the book. There is a slight riverly between Amber Rose and Josephine as they both vie for Connors attention, albeit for different reasons.

Was talking to my muse today and Josephine's origin on why she is the way she is just popped into my mind out the blue.

That's why she's my muse... unfortunately.

Anyway, book three is gonna be kick ass, but don't expect any hand holding in this one. It's just a straight dump into a complex story that's already in progress and you have to play catch up.

Some of you will love it, most will hate it.

Oh...I most definitely jump the shark in this bitch and I'm loving it!

My muse...

I have a muse and I love her with all my heart. I also hate the fact that she is my muse and I desperately wish I could find another. Just a day in the life I guess...

Hobbies...

So writing books used to be my hobby, but I'm trying to turn it into my job. The thing is, when your hobbies become your job you now have to find new hobbies to take your mind off your new job.

Hmm....if I ever wrote for video games I'd be fucked.

Real talk

Hi, I'm rashaad bell. I'm the author of the vampire manifesto series, forgotten future anthology and alphabetical genocide. I'm typing this on my iPad, so if it auto capitalizes shit and spell checks shit then great, if not, then fuck it.

I am not a writer. I suck at spelling, can't create a proper sentence worth a damn, first person present, first person past tense, wtf is that shit?

Eh...fuck it.

I'm a storyteller. I have awesome stories to tell, so sit back and shut the fuck up and stop getting caught up in the cgi of the writing.

I work a shitty job, I'm in love with a woman who couldn't give a fuck and I don't have a cell phone. Well I have a cell, but I just haven't turned it back on cause people who call me can sometimes be annoying little dipshits, but if I don't pick up, then I'm the asshole.

I write books.

Yup, that's me. If your reading this, I'm guessing you've read one.

To everyone who has given me good reviews, thank you. To everyone who has given me bad reviews, thank you, I see the problems you point out and I'm working on it.

Everything I do, book wise, is just me. I can't afford good editing, because, hell, I get an eviction notice on my door every month cause I pay rent late.

So for everyone who keeps talking shit about how I need better editing, I hear you, I'm working on it. I just got some novel editing software and I'm going to try to clean that shit up.

I haven't been writing, but I've been plotting like a motherfucker. I pretty much have all of vampire manifesto book three plotted out and if I don't get stupid drunk tomorrow, I should be working on that.

I'm also plotting out three new series spinning out of the vampire manifesto.

Epsilon 9, which is gonna be an erotic thriller.
Girard, which is gonna chronicle what happened to that character after the book fledgling.
Plus a secret book that I can't talk about because it will spoil shit from book three of the vampire manifesto.

I love all my fans, thanks for the Facebook requests and emails you send.

I'm trying to get better and polish off my shit, but my life is fucking hectic and I'm hella broke all the fucking time, so bare with me.

Read some awesome shit and stop being a fucking grammar Nazi.

Or be a grammar Nazi because my shit isn't on point and honestly, whatever excuse I give on why it's not, doesn't really fucking matter cause it should be on point. Yup, I know I'm fucking up.

But this is what I got, love it or leave it.

Unpublished guest blog post...

Don't know if it's gonna get presented on her blog, but here it is:

I write because I have a story to tell. Its not the most concise story and its not the best edited story in the world, but its a story nonetheless. This offends people. It offends traditional publishers because it is a threat to their way of doing business. It signifies that I no longer need them and their antiquated business practices to find my audience. It proves to them that in fact, I don't need them anymore. I can create my own online presence. I can create my own paperbacks and distribute them. I've, in essence, taken the power that they have held over traditional publishing and proved that it is now obsolete. I can kick down my own doors and place my books firmly in the hands of people that desire them without the need of Big Six approval.
It also offends the elitist of indie authors as well. How dare I attempt to sell something that is nowhere near the perfection of their fully vetted, professionally edited manuscripts? To them, my poorly written, continuity error filled novel, with it's homemade cover design and dated pop culture references and lackluster editing even attempt to try and carve out a little niche for myself? I need to do it their way or not at all. More importantly, since it's not of professional grade quality, I need to crawl back into whatever hovel I came from and not show my face until it meets their merit of perfection. To them, I am a threat to everything they stand for. I am going to ruin indie publishing. I'm going to turn off their readers with my incoherent ramblings that I pass off as a novel.
I also write about Vampires. This offends people.  People are sick of Vampires! They suck, pardon the pun. It's not a real book. I'm just flooding the market place with my Vampire crap, stopping readers from finding their masterpiece. Nobody wants to read it anyway. Your destroying indie publishing with that nonsense, go write a real book!
I never imagined that by sitting at the keyboard and typing, I would offend so many people. But do you want to know a secret?
I don't care.
I'm not writing my books to gain the attention of the Big Six and I sure as heck don't write to gain the approval of other indie authors. I write because I have a story to tell, plain and simple. I'm just a guy, with a keyboard and an idea. I never claimed I was anything other then that. I'm not here to give you that great, all American novel. I'm not trying to create something that will go done in history as one of the greatest things written since Tolkien sat down at a typewriter. I'm just here to tell you about a girl named Madison Amber Rose who is destined to open one of the Boxes of Pandora. Vampires want her dead, Werewolves are hounding her every step and ancient Gods have suddenly reappeared in our dimension with plans of destroying reality itself.
Who am I?
I'm just a guy with an idea, a little bit of writing skills and the ability to get that idea on your Ebook device. I'm not here to give you that perfect masterpiece you've been waiting on, but I'm trying. I get better ever day. Right now, I'm not that author that I always dreamed of being, but practice makes perfect. The funny thing is, if they think I'm a threat now, they oh boy, I've got a surprise coming for them in the future.

True love...

"A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes
I screamed aloud, as it tore through them, and now it's left me blind."

Amber: The one woman I'll never forget.
Kelly: Maybe next lifetime we'll be butterflies.
Ivette: True friendship destroyed,
Kady: Don't know what you have till its gone.
Kymberli: It is what it is...

2) Aliens from Signs-butt fucking naked. Plus you came to a planet where rainwater is like acid. Dip shit.
3) War of the Worlds-butt fucking naked. If I ran around mars in my birthday suit, I'm sure I'd get pretty fucking sick too.

Drunk filled rant I posted to kindle boards today!

So I've kinda noticed that you guys and gals have a pretty much tight community going on here. So instead of just jumping into to topics and being deemed the "new guy" like I've been doing, I figured it would be better to introduce myself to this thriving community.

My name is Rashaad Bell. I was born in NY, though I'm an army brat so I was kinda raised all up and down the east coast, from Fort Bragg, to Delaware.

I consider myself from Baltimore, since that's where I grew into "manhood". I joined the marines right out of high school and was stationed at Camp Johnson, North Carolina, Camp Pendleton, California, Okinawa, Japan and 29 Palms, California.

After that I moved to Oakland, California, back when it was the murder capital of the United States, then I settled down in Palm Coast, Florida. (which is where all my books are set)

When I was in Cali, I used to rap in a group, Universal Soldiers. I used to go to Mexico a lot and do lots of free style battles. We called ourselves Universal Soldiers because everyone that was in our group was from Baltimore, we all had lived in Japan and done rap shows there and we all ended up in Oceanside, California. That was the city right outside of Camp Pendelton.

I've been writting in some form, all my life, from doing our own comics in elementary school, to me starting to write my first books after I read Lord of the Rings in middle school. Not to mention all the rhymes I used to write and the freestyle battles I used to do. Nothing is harder then having an east coast flow and battling bloods and crips in the middle of Los Angles and win, walk away with respect and not get shot.

I came across Konraths blog and heard about Amanda Hocking making a gazillion dollars and decided to get off my butt and write something. I self published Forgotten Future last year, a collection of short stories that I had written. Honestly, those stories are kinda bugged out because during my suicidal phase, I would buy lots of weed, then go to this old cemetery, it had people buried there from the 1800's, and I would sit underneath this giant statue of an angel on this dudes grave and smoke weed and read H.P. lovecraft and write short stories high out my mind.

Ahh...the good old days.

Then I moved to Palm Coast, Florida and wrote the Vampire Manifesto and it's sequel, Fledgling. Not cause I wanted to, but I got laid off from my job doing customer service for magizine subscriptions, cause who has a magizine subscription these days. So in a hate fueled rage, I wrote Vampire Manifesto. Then when a women I was madly in love with basically told me I wasn't good enough for her, I wrote the sequel, Fledgling. (who needs you I'm gonna be famous!!! Lol or at least I thought)

I didn't really make any money, but I was just proud to have written a book. I found out that a lot of my "friends" were hating on me because, I'm Rashaad, I can't possibly be an author. I can't possibly do something that they couldn't do.

Well I am! How you like me now!

I usually use hate and depression to write, but this month I received my first fan mail. Now I'm writting because I honestly have someone who doesn't know me waiting for my next book. Like I said, I didn't make a lot of money from my books, and I still don't, but now, when I get a direct deposit from amazon, it's enough to pay the water bill, or enough to pay the electric bill or buy a video game I couldn't afford, so to me it's a win-win.

So this is me. I have no public persona, though I guess I should, otherwise this would be an entirley different "intoduction" but I'd much rather give real talk then put on a facade. I really want to work in comics and I have a secret dream of having the Vampire Manifesto become a TV show.

My book is about Vampires, but not really. It's more like a story that just so happens to have Vampires in them. Most of my stuff is rated R. In my books, I murder, torture, curse, drop F bombs, have drug use, sex, deal with string theory, alternate dimensions  and have lots of Gods show up from every different culture.

I don't think there is a genre for what I write, but I have a story to tell and I don't care if people can't "label" it correctly.

So that's me. Hi! I've given you way to much info, but I'm drunk and don't wanna drunk text anyone, so I did this instead.  Lol.

I'm going to be here for a while, so get prepared....

Love to love to love ya...

I see you...

Okay, so even though there are no comments and no one subscribes, I know your there. I get stats and shit, so yeah, I know people are reading the blogs. So, here we go, fandom, I enlist your help. I can't figure out what to write next. I've got too many ideas and a serious a.d.d. problem. So I'm gonna list off all the ideas of what the new book should be and you guys and gals sound off in the comment section about wich one you'd rather read. I know your there! Do me a solid, and participate in some shit! 1)book 3 of the vampire manifesto series.. 2) a spin off of the vampire manifesto featuring a certain character from the series that you like. Give the name of the character and why you wanna read more.. 3) a gritty story about a bodyguard for a mexico mob. The person he is supposed to protect gets taken hostage and all hell breaks loose. Think max Payne 3 (video game) meets the movie man under fire. 4) the story of the last samurai, on a quest to kill the people that murdered his family. Of course it would have zombie nazis, abominable snowmen with Gatling guns for hands and cybernetic dragons with jet packs. Yup, crazy shit like that. 5) an investigative reporter looking into the murders caused by a new desingner drug and gets pulled into the night life of an underground sex club. Lots of sex in this one. 6) a fairy tale fantasy with the characters from snow white, the wizard of oz, Alice and wonderland and any other fucking fairy tales I can think of, but the tone is set to the game of thrones... Okay, sound off in the comments. Whichever gets the most votes is what I'll write about. This is about you, the fans. I know you read this shit. I got the stats to prove it. What do you wanna read next from me?

Hi...

Yup, that's pretty much it. I didn't drunk text anyone last night, soooooo, yay me!

Love life

So...I pretty much had a pregnant chick tell me that she would rather be a single mom then be with me or accept any help with the baby. The child isn't my kid, mind you, but apparently I'm so repulsive that doing it on her own is preferable then help from me. Hey, who am I to judge? Maybe I'm that much of a douche bag that mothers warn their unborn young about me. Nevermind mind the fact that hey, sure I'll go to doctors appointments. Sure I'll help you change diapers. Sure I'll hold your hair while your throwing up from morning sickness. But hey, I'm the dick. I'm just not pretty enough. You pretty motherfuckers in the world, hey, fuck you. The new book is still coming. I maybe a lowlife loser that nobody respects but I will publish that next book. As of right now, it's the only thing that's real in my life.

Some news about the new books plot...

So, I've decided that the new book, a spin off of the Vampire Manifesto series is going to focus heavily on Staci Girard and what it means for her being a newly formed hybrid, colonel Steven Hawking and his newly formed Team Six Imperative. Plus, as you know, when we last saw Aiden Rose he was in really bad shape. What exactly is the Genesis Chamber and what is it going to do him once he enters it?

The new book officially starts today!

So, I'm starting the new book head on today. I had already done a couple of pages the other day, but I'm grabbing the fucking bull by the horns now. Not doing the decapitation of jeremey crusher any more. Decided to go with something else, although, that book is still gonna get written. Doing a spinoff of the vampire manifesto. *spoilers* my hybrid character, staci girard is coming full circle on this one, getting a closer look at her and what it means to be a hybrid and also a closer look at the defense initiative and colonel Stephan Hawking and the Team Seven Imparitive. It's gonna be a wild ride...

Huh...looks like if the text is too long, it sends it in two separate texts which then fuck up the flow of the blog. I gotta fix that shit....
e to big for the keyboard, so I'm always fucking up, but we'll see...
Okay, so now I've got it all set up so that I can just blog from my phone and it should update here. Hot shit! Although with this new phone, my thumbs ar
Testing out this new mobile blog thingie...

The decapitation of Jeremy Crusher

Thats the title of the new book and as its suggest, somebody is getting their fucking head cut. I'm gonna start on it tonight, maybe tomorrow and it's going to be about an ex secret service agent that goes to work as a body guard for a drug cartel. When said body guard and the woman he is supposed to be protecting get kidnapped... Well, that's when shit gets real. This one is gonna be a stand alone tale, with no connection with the vampire manifesto series. Just lots of fucking, gunplay, sex, drugs and murder. Bring on the wetwork! This will be my first time writing some non fantasy, science fiction stuff, but it should still, hopefully be kick ass...

What I'm blasting at three in the morning....


Hell fucking yeah...

I'm back....

Okay, so I know it's been awhile since I've done this thing. I kinda suck when it comes to this blog stuff. But I'm going to try and hit this thing up at least once a day, lol. We'll see how long that bullshit sticks. Anyway, I've published two more books, The Vampire Manifesto and its sequel, Fledgling. I'm working on a third, that is gonna focus on one of the newer characters in the second book. I think. I'm not sure what the next book is gonna be about, but I know I'm gonna get off my ass and write that motherfucker. (parental advisory bitches)
Anyway, just watched chronicle today. Banging ass movie. Not as good as the avengers, but still good. Sorry about the randomness, it is two in the morning and I'm working on the paperbacks and the format is kicking my ass cause it seems like my computer doesn't wanna upload anything.
Well, I'm getting off this thing. hit you up with some news about the book tomorrow, cause i plan to knock out a fuckton of pages tomorrow.
