I’m an avid reader of fantasy and paranormal romance novels. I like writing about vampires, werewolves, zombies, witches, and any fuzzy monsters who go bump in the night. In my stories, I try to imagine new origins for these traditional creatures and see where it takes me.  Currently I’m writing the Vampire from Hell series.

It has been over a year since Part 3 – A Vampire on Vacation was published in July 2012.  Since then I have not released anything related to this series.  That’s a startling, and sobering fact, for me – even for my readers maybe– because for many months last year, I did not know if I’d return to writing this series.  I didn’t know if I’d keep writing at all.

With that being said, I have returned to the keyboard and will be releasing “The Vampire from Hell Returns (Part 4)” next month on Oct. 20th. (Join the Facebook Release Party.)  I’m very excited to continue Rayea’s story, at least for three more installments, and I’m delighted to say that, for bad or worse, I’m past the first obstacle I encountered during my first year of writing.  And I’m not looking back.  It may not always be smooth sailing from now on, but that’s okay because I’ll keep sailing.  I’m hoping many of you will join me for the ride.

Read An Excerpt

This excerpt features Michael, the arch angel Rayea (vampire heroine) falls for. I based Michael’s character on Alexander Skarsgard of course. Enjoy! ~ally

A drop of blood from my busted lip landed on Michael’s white T-shirt.  I groaned with pleasure.

“When was the last time you fed this vampire?” Michael asked.

Hearing the word ‘vampire,’ my attention snapped back to Michael’s face, and I snarled at him.  I wanted to devour this angel in my sights.

“You’ve got some long fangs there, Vampire.  What are those?  An inch and a half, maybe two?”  Michael managed a small, tentative smile despite the threat I posed.316796_250841628301339_240931305959038_771410_1598242809_n

I watched his every move, ready to strike, but feeling a force hold me back.  “Blood,” I replied.  I could hear it pumping in his veins, through his temples, and down the side of his neck.  His pulse reminded me of the waves slamming against the rocks.  An image of my rocking in his lap to that rhythmic dance surfaced in my mind, riding him, grinding against him over and over until…  To have him inside me, I thought.

The voice inside my head said, “Grab your popcorn!  This is gonna be good!

“Rayea, please calm down,” Blick interjected as he carefully approached us.  “We can’t make a scene.”

“I think it’s a little late for that,” Michael said.

“What do we do?” Blick asked him.

“I told you she needs blood.”

I nodded, staring at Michael.  Yes, she does, I thought.  That and a lot more.

The voice inside my head asked, “She needs blood!  Why did we not think of that before?

“You’re right.  God, I’m an idiot!  I’m the worst guardian angel ever!” Blick exclaimed, throwing up his hands.  “But she can’t have mine or yours for that matter.  J won’t approve it.”  He collapsed in a chair, behind Michael, shaking his head.  “Rayea, I’ve failed you.”

Michael looked over at him.  “Get a grip, man.  We move to Plan B.  Grab those items and I’ll take her to the living room.”

“Tasssty,” I hissed and smacked my lips when I witnessed Michael’s adam’s apple showing as he leaned his head back to speak to Blick.

Cautiously returning his attention to me, Michael said, “Look into my eyes.” The warmth of his smile echoed in his voice.  I stared at him, mesmerized by the ocean-blue color of his eyes.  Instantly, I felt relaxed, sane, and willing to submit to his will.

Great, the vampire is going googoo for the angel.

Shut up, I snapped at the voice inside my head.  He’s adorable. I sighed and returned his smile.

“If this doesn’t work, you can ask Gabriel to help out,” Michael said to Blick.

“Not funny,” Blick said.

Michael shrugged.  Sweeping me off the table, he gathered me in his arms and announced, “Let’s do this.”

Without any resistance, I floated into the living room as the angel carried me.  Isn’t he dreamy? I thought.

The voice inside my head responded, “You better latch your mouth around something on that angel or I will!

Michael positioned me on the large, comfy leather couch.  He was talking to me, but I didn’t pay any attention.  I was fascinated with the movement of his arms, the way his neck curved from side to side as he and Blick conversed.  I looked at Blick, and then Michael many times as I admired how both angels were attractive in their own right.  Were all angels beautiful? I wondered.  The roar of the ocean called me and I let the feeling pull me under into a heavenly bliss.

Why I love Alexander Skarsgard by Alexandra Anthony

I have to admit it.  I’m an Alexander Skarsgård addict.

To be honest, I know the exact moment I became an addict.  It was seeing him play Brad Colbert in “Generation Kill”.  He was tall, blond and delicious with a sarcastic mouth.

I was in heaven.

When it was announced he would be playing Eric Northman on “True Blood”, I was beside myself.  I’ve been a fan of the fang since I was a teenager and Anne Rice introduced me to the seductive world of vampires.  Lestat de Lioncourt was my first vampire crush.

As I became increasingly disenchanted with other vampire books on the market, I decided to dip my toe in the pool and write an adult version of how I pictured vampires to be.  I stripped away all of the typical vampire myths; their inability to be in the sun, garlic, mirrors, silver.  I decided to make them able to walk among us and not limit them to being creatures of the night.  It adds an element of fear that you don’t normally have since the person sitting next to you on the bus could be a vampire.

When I was creating my vampire, I immediately decided to use a version of Alexander Skarsgård as my model.  I combined several of his “ looks” (Generation Kill, Straw Dogs and several different photo shoots) and gave my character Stefan some of his charm and sense of humor with a liberal dose of sex appeal for good measure.  I can only hope I do him justice as I write my book series.

And that my friends is why I’m proud to be an Alexander Skarsgård addict.

Call me Kelly. I’m a brazilian fan of Alexander Skasgard.

I appreciate your community about him on facebook. I know your fan blog now and like the themes, titles and pictures, of course. Wonderful!!!

I met Alex through the work in True Blood. I admit that at first glance, I thought it was only a handsome man, but then, knowing their job better, I can say that his beauty is equal to his immense talent. Alex was born to shine.

I also could not fail to mention that his personality really surprises me. In some interviews I read, I can see that he is fantastic and so I admire him even more. … fantastic, beautiful and talented. Not to mention the most beautiful smile I have ever seen :)

Ally, if you have contact with him, do not hesitate to say that in Brazil there is anyone who has a fondness for it huge, and always pray that he shine more and more. I do not know how I could be useful to you or to the blog, but in need can count on me. Thank you for giving color to my days with your news and photos about Alex. Hugs to you, to Maribel and the entire team. ;-)

Back in 2008 I started to watch the HBO series True Blood out of curiosity, because I’ve always liked vampires.  So I started to watch it but I didn’t get attracted to the main vampire at that moment, played by an obscure unknown actor called Stephen Moyer.

So more or less I continued watching the series, but in episode 4, a tall blond guy with the looks of a Viking made his debut.  Since the first moment I saw him he intrigued me, more or less the same way an unknown Australian actor called Hugh Jackman impressed me in the X-Men movies.

So I finished season 1 and next year season 2 started, I remember telling other people about the Viking guy, by that time I didn’t even know his name, but I was more curious about him.
Then, the scene with Godric in the roof came.  The Viking guy impressed me with his intensity, how well he transmitted the feelings of the scene.  Vampire Eric was begging his maker not to meet the sun.  Perhaps that was the moment I’ve realized the Viking guy could act.  But still I was infatuated by my other favorite fictional character, Wolverine, played by my only #1 fave actor back then; Hugh Jackman.

By Season 3 I really was hook on the Viking, by a friend, who was mesmerized by his looks, without knowing it, I became obsessed about the actor behind Eric Northman, at that moment I started to google his name:  Alexander Skarsgård, and I started to visit pages dedicated to him.  So that was the moment Wolverine got a rival, a Viking vampire….LOL… the first time I liked another actor the same way I liked Hugh Jackman.

So by the end of 2010 I realized I was obsessed  with Alexander Skarsgård and the character of Eric Northman.  After TB 3rd season I read the books that supposedly inspired the series and guess what, I fell in love even more with the Viking vampire.

So by 2011 I started to visit several facebook pages dedicated to the Viking, among them Skarssgarding, Sisters in Skarsgård and ASFB.  So there I met Ally, Lori, Meg, Bianca, Elena and so many other fabulous fans of the Viking.  Then, Ally offered me to be administrator of both her pages and I accepted.  Soon after, Lori invited me to be a moderator of her Sisters in Skarsgård page and I accepted too.

Currently on Facebook I’m a moderator of the following pages:
Alexander Skarsgard Fan Blog

Skarsgarding

Sisters in Skarsgård

Alexander Skarsgård aka Eric Northman video blog

Eric Northman Lovers United

The Vampire from Hell by Ally Thomas

I also have my own page dedicated to some of my favorite actors: Sexy beasts from Fangtasia, and of course ASkars is featured on it.

Ok, why I like Alexander Skarsgård so much?

1- He’s a superb actor, the scene with Godric, season 4, showed how well he uses his eyes expressions, how he changes his tone of voice, his body language…. It is amazing how expressive he is.  While Hugh Jackman’s asset is his versatility, Alexander uses his body language and his facial expressions brilliantly…   Despite the disaster of S4, Alex was the only good there.  Even though stupid Anna Paquin was unable to get into the skin of Sookie Stackhouse, the scenes she made with Alex were worth seeing because of him.

2-  His looks, damn it, he’s so sexy, even if he wears a bag of potatoes, he looks gorgeous.

3- He seems to be so genuine, when other actors not as talented as him have big egos, he seems to be nice. All reports say he’s nice to his fans.  He does his thing and he doesn’t mind to repeat clothes…LOL….

4- He hangs with aliens…LOL… he loves to have fun… after all he deserves it!  Go Alex!

5- His overbite, I think that makes him real…

Even though I’m so upset with TB and I have no interest on the series, I will still watch S5 because Alexander Skarsgård is still there.
So who’s my #1 favorite actor at this moment?  Currently it is a tie between the Wolverine and the Viking…. LOL
