Alex Van Helsing: Vampire Rising by Jason Henderson - post author Don

Jason Henderson, author of The Sword of Dracula, (you can read a script excerpt here) has a new series – Alex Van Helsing. The first in the series, Alex Van Helsing: Vampire Rising by Jason Henderson, comes out today from HarperCollins.

Fourteen-year-old Alex has no idea that he’s descended from the world’s most famous vampire hunter, but that changes fast when he arrives at Glenarvon Academy and confronts two vampires in his first three days.

Turns out Glenarvon isn’t the only school near Lake Geneva. Hidden deep underground lies an ancient university for vampires called the Scholomance. And the deadly vampire clan lord known as Icemaker? You might say he’s a visiting professor.

When two of Alex’s friends are kidnapped by Icemaker, it’s up to Alex to infiltrate the Scholomance and get them back – alive. Assisted by the Polidorium, a top-secret vampire-hunting organization with buried ties to the Van Helsings, Alex dodges zombies, bullets, and lots – and lots – of fangs on his way to thwarting Icemaker’s plans and fulfilling his family destiny.

Hunting Humans - post author Don

This ‘just’ in from Kevin of Kangas Kahn Films.

Hey, recently noticed you linked to my script for Fear of Clowns –very cool! Thought you might like the link to my first produced screenplay, “Hunting Humans”, from MTI Home Video…

[S]ome serial killer was caught with a copy [of Hunting Humans] in his dvd player like a year ago, which is flattering yet creepy…Dateline and
Nightline (page 3) both featured the flick in their stories.

But when he finds his next victim already dead, a note on the body reading: “I’VE GOT YOUR PATTERN”, Aric realizes he’s being stalked by a serial killer every bit his equal. When two serial killers wage war, the rules are simple: Don’t Get In The Way.

We had 29 scripts which were read and discussed over on the discussion board. One script was selected to be audio performed by the fine folks over at iScript.com. That selected script is Old Ninty-nine Face by Cameron Mitchell .

Evan, new to the neighborhood, hears the legend of Old Ninety-nine Face, a hermit whose ghost supposedly haunts a nearby house. As the story goes, steal something from the house on Halloween night, and the ghost of Old Ninety-nine Face will come for you. Evan doesn’t believe it, but he soon will.

The Fempiror Chronicles – exclusive sneek peek - post author Don

The Fempiror Chronicles, The Initiation of David by George WillsonAuthor George Willson has graciously allowed SimplyScripts readers an exclusive sneek peek of his breakthrough novel, The Fempiror Chronicles: The Initiation of David.

In 1775, at the age of 17, David Taylor is thrust into this new world of the Fempiror when he disobeys a decree against being out at night to be with his beloved, Beth. Now, he is forced to follow a new set of laws – to protect humanity from the dark side of the Fempiror race.

The Fempiror* are a race created for a war in a country long forgotten. Like a science experiment gone awry, they share an incurable condition that gives them superior speed, strength, and lifespan, but sacrifices a life in the sun and a sense of normalcy with the rest of humanity.

Read the prologue and first chapter, free (pdf format).

The entire novel is available at CreateSpace and Amazon.com
