Valengribe is my post for the letter V in the A to Z challenge. In my first written book that is in the process of being edited, Valengribe is a tribe of vampires. They are the most feared of all and roam the treacherous terrains of the Deldaron woods.

Malceraz, the chief of the tribe, the deadliest vampire known, has a love of toying with his prey. He establishes and organizes games in the tribe by allowing their captives a chance to freedom. If one can slay a vampire, they may go free but such a thing is nearly impossible as vampires are much more agile, quicker, and resilient. This hopeful chance is nothing more than just a means of gory entertainment as the victim struggles against his vampire opponent.

Falling prey to any other tribe is deemed fortunate when compared to Valengribe. They are the most elusive of all other tribes and every militia has failed to squash their insolence and crimes. Valengribe doesn’t get found unless they want to be found. The mere mention of their name strangles conversations and causes all to shutter.   


  1. Oooh, Valengribe sounds scary!

    In response to your question on my blog about querying, it depends upon your objectives. If you want to get published with one of the 'Big 6' publishers (Random House, Simon and Schuster, etc.), you have to have an agent, because they don't look at manuscripts from authors without an agent. However, if you want to publish with a smaller publisher, many of them allow un-agented writers to query them. Hope that helps!

  2. Thank you. Querying has been on my mind lately and it seems I keep getting conflicting instructions but this actually makes since. Thanks!
