Guest Post & #Giveaway by Jennifer Malone Wright, author of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter series!


Today I am turning the blog over to Jennifer Malone Wright, author of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter series! Please make her welcome! :)

My Top Five Favorite Things To Do Besides Write (in no particular order)

1. One of my favorite things to do besides read and write is photography. There is just something about capturing life into a picture that I love. I get inspiration for my writing through pictures and photography as well. I haven’t had much time to focus on this, but I just got a new camera, so we will see if I can get some new stuff up for you guys to see.

2. Television! I love TV and movies! The visual aspect of movies and television is also helpful for my creativity and writing. I am in love with some of the new shows on lately. Game of Thrones, Grimm, Once Upon a Time, The Walking Dead, Supernatural, and True Blood are a few of the shows I've been addicted to lately.

3. Camping and the outdoors. As a writer, and mother of five kids, getting out side is very important. I think a lot of writers forget to get out and into the world. We need excersize and air, plus the world is what we write about so we need to get out there to observe it. A few of the activities I like best are, camping, boating, taking my kids hiking and to the park and fishing.

4. I don’t know how to knit, but I know how to crochet simple things like scarves. This is one of my favorite things to do on a nice cozy evening of watching TV with my hubby. I have a hard time just sitting watching the television so I have to be doing something else and making scarves seems like a productive thing to do.

5. Baking. Ok, I really, really, really hate cooking. But, for some reason, I love to bake and I’m pretty good at it too. My daughter also loves to bake but she likes cakes and I am more of a bread and pie kind of person. I love baking, especially in the fall!


The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter
Complete Collection
Parts I-VI
Genre: YA Paranormal
June 2012
This special edition of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter contains parts I-VI, the complete collection. Fourteen-year-old Chloe witnesses her mother’s murder at the hands of a vampire. Before the vampire can kidnap her, there is an unexpected rescue by a group of vampire hunters.

Overwhelmed by the feeling of safety, Chloe passes out and they whisk her away to their small community. When Chloe wakes, she comes face to face with the only other living relative, besides her mother, whom she has ever met: her grandfather. Chloe’s mother kept her hidden from the family; now, Chloe tries to unveil the family secrets.

Through her grandfather, she learns her mother was a vampire hunter. In fact, her entire family is descended from the powerful bloodlines of vampire hunters. Chloe agrees to join the family she has never known for one reason only: Chloe vows to kill the vampire responsible for her mother’s murder. With vengeance in her soul, Chloe is even more determined to follow through on her vow when she discovers the true identity of her enemy and how he is connected to her.

Experience the world of vampire hunter’s, vampires and mythology with Chloe in this exciting series.


I took the first book off the stack and examined the cover. It was titled Vampires throughout History. The cover was leather and so old it was stiff and cracked in spots. The pages showed signs of age too, yellowing and stiff to the touch. There was no table of contents, so it looked like I was going to have to scan the entire book for what I was wanting. I flipped the pages carefully, so as not to tear any of them.

After an hour of scanning and about half way through the book, I found something referring to vampire children.
~~~
Although extremely rare, the natural-born offspring of vampires exist throughout the world. These rare beings are called the dhampir. Dhampir are usually the product of a vampire and mortal. The most common of these unions is a male vampire impregnating a mortal woman. Vampires, both male and female, are seductive in nature and some mortals came willingly to these unions. However, the majority of dhampir born were produced through an act of rape.

Solitary by nature, it is uncommon for a vampire to settle with any one mate for long. The children of vampires, the dhampir, more often than not exhibit all the characteristics of their vampire parent. The strength, speed and agility are the usual hereditary traits that the children develop. They are not always born with these traits but develop them as they grow into adulthood.

The dhampir are day walkers. Some of these children are sensitive to the sunlight but will not perish in the direct rays. Most have no sensitivity at all. Drinking the fresh blood of mortals is also not usually required of the dhampir; however, some have a liking for it. Very few actually need it to survive.
Most dhampir are rejected by the vampire species because of their mortality and weaknesses. Mortals often reject the dhampir, as well, due to their vampirism, so they frequently remain outcast.

Dhampir are known for becoming vampire killers. Their closeness to the vampires and their vampire characteristics make them powerful vampire hunters. The unique ability to track and kill vampires is specific to only the dhampir and the mythological race of vampire hunters.

Historically, dhampir became vampire hunters as a trade. Towns and villages became plagued by vampires who were terrorizing their homes and killing their people. The dhampir accepted contracts in exchange for monetary payment and used their likeness to their vampire counterparts to exterminate the vampires.
~~~
Holy crap, that was a lot to process. The more I read the passages, the more I understood that my being a hunter was more than my heritage; it was my history and my future. Everything about my bloodlines had hunters involved.

Part I of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter is FREE and the author would appreciate it if this was included in the tour spots.  You can find it FREE at the links below.

Jennifer Malone Wright
Jennifer Malone Wright resides in the beautiful mountains of northern Idaho with her husband and five children. Between the craziness of taking care of her children, whose ages range from fourteen all the way down to six months, and being a homemaker, Jennifer has little time left for herself. The time she does have left, usually leading far into the night, is spent working on freelance work or her beloved fiction.

When she grew up, Jennifer always had her nose in a book. She has been writing stories and poems since grade school. This love of the written word and her strong interest in the paranormal is what has led to her first novel “The Birth of Jaiden.”

In addition to being a mother and homemaker, Jennifer is also a very proud military wife. Moving around the country for the last ten years has made her a bit of a nomad and she finds it difficult to be in one place for too long.

Jennifer is also the author of The Birth of Jaiden, a paranormal novel filled with action, suspense, and even a love story.



The Author is giving away a $100 gift card from Amazon as the Grand Prize throughout the tour.
