The Vampire Hunter's Daughter Series by Jennifer Malone Wright

I'd like to welcome Jennifer Malone Wright to the Romance Book Junkies. She's stopping by on her tour to do a guest post, giveaway and share a little with us about her awesome series.


When Do I Find The Time

One of the most frequent questions I am asked is how I find the time to write. The reason I am asked this is because I have five kids who range from almost sixteen to almost two. My husband is very busy and is also in the military so he is gone a lot, sometimes for years at a time. So, with a house to keep, children who need attending to, and everything else that goes along with that, people want to know when I actually find the time to write.
Sadly, the writing part is just the beginning. I am an indie author which means that I have to write, but I also need to market, promote, social network, format, work with graphic artists, and so on. So. I do a lot of this stuff that is not actual writing during the day in between chores and kids, pretty much whenever I get the chance. I can also do a lot of this on another computer besides mine. My oldest is home schooled and uses my computer a lot during the day.
I also run a business called Tempting Book Tours, so I have that to do during the day as well.
The actual writing part I need quiet and clean around me, so it normally takes place at night when everyone is in bed or really early in the morning. The truth is, I really don’t have much time to write at all. I just do it when I can.
Rarely do I write during the day while all the kids are running around. But, I have my moments when I just have to get it out onto paper or into the computer and the house ends up looking like a tornado hit it because I’m lost in the zone.
I’m sure, when all the kids are in school, we are going to see a heck of a lot more writing from me because I will have all that time to myself. Or…maybe I’ll nap instead.

Wow Jennifer! I don't know how you do it yet you still have this great series out. Now here is a little about each of her books in the series.

 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.

The Vampire Hunter's Daughter is the first in a series of short stories by Jennifer Malone Wright.

 In the second installment of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter, Chloe Kallistrate’s life has been turned upside down. After witnessing the vampire attack that left her mother dead, she's adopted by her grandfather into a community of vampire hunters. Although she is directly descended from ancient, powerful vampire hunters, the rigorous training schedule begins to break her down. All she wants, all she has ever wanted, is to be a normal teen.

Chloe finds renewed motivation from an unexpected encounter with a fledgling vampire, the first she has seen since her mother's death. Staring into the glowing red eyes of the vampire, Chloe freezes, forgetting all her training. After the vampire is vanquished by her friend and mentor, Drew, Chloe resolves to train harder, to be the best, and to kill the vampire who had her mother killed. Finally mourning her mother, Chloe allows her revenge to drive her, accepting that her life will never be normal.

This is a the second installment in the short story series The Vampire Hunter's Daughter by Jennifer Malone Wright.

 In the third installment of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter, Chloe Kallistrate's first Christmas without her mother is difficult. As part of the grieving process she visits her mother’s grave for the first time and there, she is visited by Sostrate, the immortal demi-god from whom she is descended.

As she comes of age, Chloe is changing and developing the gifts unique to her heritage. She discovers a new power she must learn to use and control, as if being a teenager wasn't difficult enough. During this emotionally chaotic time in her life, the community is attacked, her grandfather injured and hunters are killed. After almost losing her only remaining family, Chloe questions whether her continued presence in the community will sacrifice everyone she has come to care about.

 In the fourth installment of The Vampire Hunter’s Daughter, Chloe and the other vampire hunters are suffering the aftermath of the vampire attack on their community. Many hunters were injured, and loved ones were murdered. More than that, there is a loss of security and peace since the hunters' safe haven was breached and invaded. Chloe and Drew struggle just to get along and understand each other without Luke there to guide them.

During this period of uncertainty, Chloe and Drew both try to live a normal life as teenagers by going to the New Year's bash, she with Gavin and Drew with Christina, Chloe's recent rival. Chloe is, once again, reminded that nothing is 'normal' in her life any more, when she begin to show signs she's developing supernatural gifts from her father's bloodline, too.

The bash does little to lift her feelings of guilt and responsibility for the attack on the community, because she knows it's her presence there that caused the vampires to attack the hunters. This attack nearly took the life of her only remaining family member from her mother's side. She doesn't want to put anyone else she loves at risk.

Before she has time to put any plans into action, a surprise phone call from someone unexpected sets the wheels in motion. Chloe now knows what she must do...
