Rhiannon Frater, probably best known for her As the World Dies zombie trilogy, recently redid the covers for one of her first published works, The Vampire Bride series. She was kind enough to include us at Working for the Mandroid as part of the cover reveal for the first two books in the series being re-released with new covers and interal formatting design today.
Over the years, the first book in the series The Tale of the Vampire Bride has undergone several cover changes, first upon its release as a small press published book and then again as a self-published title. This brand new cover for both The Tale of the Vampire Bride and its sequel The Vengence of the Vampire Bridge were created by Claudia McKinney with photography by Helena Cruz, typography by Ashley of The Bookish Brunette Designs and Megan Young as the model of the title character.
The Tale of the Vampire Bride
All Lady Glynis Wright ever wanted was the freedom to live her life as she pleased. Unfortunately, her aristocratic parents want her to marry well and settle into a life of luxury.
When her family becomes guests to one of the most fearsome and powerful vampires of all time, Glynis finds her fate is far more terrible than an arranged marriage. Trapped in the power of her new master, she fights for freedom, revenge against her creator, and the chance to be with the one she truly loves.
Bloody, horrific, romantic and rich in gothic atmosphere, The Tale of the Vampire Bride is sure to thrill fans of the terrible, yet romantic vampires of literary past.
The Vengence of the Vampire Bride
In THE TALE OF THE VAMPIRE BRIDE, Lady Glynis suffered great horrors at the hands of her evil vampire master, Count Vlad Dracula, and vowed she would one day escape him.
In THE VENGEANCE OF THE VAMPIRE BRIDE, Glynis learns to embrace the title of Countess Dracula as she sets into motion her plans to seek revenge on those who betrayed Glynis and her family to Dracula and to reunite with the man she loves.
Despite her ambitions, it soon becomes quite apparent that her life continues to be overshadowed by the ominous presence of Vlad Dracula.
Set in the 1820s against the lush gothic backdrop of Buda, Hungary, the tale of one vampire bride’s quest for love, revenge, and the right to determine her own way in life is a sweeping saga that will enthrall any reader who loves the beautiful, deadly vampires of old.
