Derek hated to think it, but if Tim paid a visit to the McBrides, he hoped the vamp ended it here, drained them and moved on because if one of the McBrides survived, the nightmare continued at another poor schmuck's home.
Reaching the gate, his hand gripped the padlock. It wouldn't stop him and he pulled out his tools from his jeans' pocket to pick the lock. He could easily jump the fence, but it was better to take the time now and have an easy escape route, if there proved a need. It took less than a minute.
He opened the gate and slid in, only to halt his movements when he noticed the black lab sitting on his haunches, staring at him with a curious tilt of its head. He was glad he had the heads up on the pet. "Good…boy," he said as he slowly fished into his jacket with multiple pockets containing all sorts or weapons. This pocket just happened to be filled with dog biscuits. He kept a box in his truck. Made it easier to deal with the four-legged animals when he invaded their territory.
The family's pet is alive and well. Does that seem to be a good sign? Just a thought.

VICTORY TALES PRESS is looking for Romantic tales for our
Myth, Legends and Midnight Kisses, 2015 Halloween Collection!
The approach of autumn and the Halloween Season has a varied appeal. Some would rather celebrate All Saints Day and forget the scary stuff, or some love the chilling tales of legends. This autumn VTP's anthology will spotlight romances with a theme of legends and myths. It can be a made up legend or myth, or perhaps an old one with your own special twist. It's up to you.
The short stories can be any genre as long as there is a romance and a mention of a legend or myth. (The romance doesn't have to be the main focus.) The stories may have a western, fantasy, history, time travel or even adventure theme. They can be eerie tales and capers, too.
Vampires, witches and werewolves have a variety of legends you can draw from, and you can add your own special mythology to it.
What if there was an outlaw from the 1800s, who buried his treasure and someone from now found it? Perhaps it was cursed...
How about a civil war legend like the angel's glow legend... Where the soldiers' wounds actually glowed and those who did, had a better chance of surviving. What if there was an actual angel...vampire...fairy...or perhaps a special woman or man who had the power of healing...
Maybe your legend is an item that has the power of finding a soul mate...
It can be anything. Let your imagination guide you.
What are we looking for? Any LEGEND or Myth themed romance (sweet to sensual) with a word count between 10,000-20,000. If your tale is slightly shorter or longer, this is okay. The word count is only an estimation guide.
When do we need the stories? Now until Sept. 15th. The sooner you can email your submission the better. We will do some light editing only, but we will need time to read through all submissions.
Please send submissions to kmnbooks @ yahoo . com (no spaces).
Please put 2015 HALLOWEEN COLLECTION in the SUBJECT LINE.
I can't wait to read your tales! Any questions, please don't hesitate to email me.
