Happy Happy Joy Joy Psychopathic Guardian Angels

What do my Guardian Angels really think of us humans and our prayers? (Stop right here if you think this is some inspirational article about sweet, protective and helpful Guardian Angels, because you're in for a shock. Because it's not. So for those brave enough, go ahead and read on.) :)

They're not too happy about it anymore. No joy or love or peacefully strumming damn harps in their world.

But isn't it their job to help us humans out, because some other supposedly almighty supernatural being ordered them to? (kinda says so in the Bible, I kinda sorta heard...)

In my comic book series, not anymore. Because in a nutshell, we drive them crazy.

So crazy in fact, they've mentally snapped.

So every time they hear a prayer to them begging for help, they go ballistic.

And they have become sick of answering the prayers of the despairing who pray to them. See, if you have one billion or more people on Earth (just go with me on this math), and almost all of them believe in and pray to Guardian Angels DAILY, and want them to solve major problems, help with a crisis, help end their suffering and pain, or save them from life's miseries, well, that's a goddamn lot of prayers to answer. Like they are some sort of supernatural 24/7 therapist/super hero/savior.

You would think that at some point they don't wanna keep up with this image anymore. 'Cause yeah, whiny, desperate, nagging, helpless humans constantly and non-stop praying to you about their problems can get really annoying at some point. Especially if they keep relying on Angels to save them from everything.

Is it any surprise that they've become disillusioned and angry with their jobs? (Like, Where's the "me" time?)

And even as they become Vampires, unfortunately, they're still Guardian Angels, and they still hear the prayers loud and clear, they can't just tune them out, and they are still programmed to respond. They can't seem to shake that part off yet.

So, the only thing a Vampire Guardian Angel-turned-psychopath can do is, well, shut those darn humans up. For good. So they can have some peace and quiet. And a bloody snack. Think "Serial Killer with black wings, fangs, and sharp swords that hunt you down the minute they hear your prayer to them. You're a target. And a meal. You're kinda like, well,  summoning them big time. You don't wanna do that.

So the moral of my comic book stories are....

A Guardian Angel is a supernatural, unseen being. So, do you really know who you're praying for help to? People shouldn't whine to a guardian angel because you don't really know what a guardian angel really is. You never know what's coming for you. It could be my very angry, and very hungry, Vampire Guardian Angels.

Move Along, No Romantic Vampires Here

Someone asked me the other day if my Vampires were "romantic and handsome".

Oh hell, no.

I proceeded to explain that they were, well, horrifying, bloody, and quite grotesque. And that you would not want to meet one in a dark alley, figuratively speaking.

Needless to say, she was very disappointed.

Well, she's not exactly my target audience.

If you're expecting a vampire love story with vampires as heroic, romantic figures, you've come to the wrong place.

And if you're looking for traditional vampires, I give you something completely different instead. Not the 1800s vampires, not the cloak-wearing vampires. And most definitely not the ...romantic ones.

No, they can't be killed by garlic, sunlight, stakes through the heart, or holy water. Holy water and crosses don't affect them 'cause, well, they are Guardian Angels. From Heaven. Still kinda holy. Sort of. Yeah.

These are not the vampires of legend and folklore stories. And they don't really like biting necks. They actually prefer to use swords and sharp weapons.

OK, so what are they?

Stay with me here. They are Guardian Angels. Yep, you know, the halo-wearing, white winged (well in this case, black winged), supposedly protective guardians of mankind? Um, not anymore.

Picture this: Guardian Angels go bad, become serial killers, basically kill humans who pray to them to shut them up (cause they don't wanna answer prayers anymore.)


Vampire bites Guardian Angel, Guardian Angel returns to Heaven, and, voila, turns all Guardian Angels into Vampires.

Still with me?

Let's move on. Human prays to Guardian Angel for help. Guardian Angel appears, except that he's a Vampire now.

Vampire Guardian Angel eats human.More like...disembowels. Eats...everything. Not just the blood. Think...disembowel....groovy.

Now that's much better. I prefer something disturbing. Brutal. Violent. Gory. Something that makes you cringe, especially when you pray.

Well, the catch here is, you gotta be desperate. Suicidal. Whiny. That's what attracts Vampire Guardian Angels. 'Cause they hate the begging for help. They really do.

Because they are, well, having issues. If you had to spend thousands of years playing therapist to human problems, I think a little R & R would be needed. But since God doesn't let Guardian Angels have vacations (or breaks), well, a psychopathic, sociopathic breakdown with a deep hatred of humans and calls for revenge for making them answer prayers is in order. Therapeutic for Angels. Bad for humans.

Oh, and the weapons they dispatch you with: swords and every type of exotic sharp weapon you can think of (google "Haladie dagger").

So if you're expecting Vampires that you can have a romance fantasy with, better leave the site. Unless of course, you start getting turned on by bloody gore. (Yes, grotesque can be pretty hot too, if you're into that.)

Oh, and don't pray. :)

FAQ: How Do I Publish my Books

I became my own Publishing Company:
I did research on what a publishing company does in terms of production, marketing, publicity and promotion. I pretty much realized I could do the same things a publishing, marketing, and publicity company could do. I set up my own publishing company to publish my own works and produce a published and printed book, become an author, and I retain all of my rights. I'm not restricted by any contracts and I don't have to wait for anyone to publish anything for me and I control the timeline and all production aspects. I don't have to worry about any publisher pulling the book "off the shelf". And I can turn the book into films, comic books, eBooks, and whatever else I want. There still is the outdated perception that only a major publishing company or agent can turn you into a "legitimate" author. Self-publishing is just as credible and legitimate, but of course it still depends on the work being done well. It's up to me to get my name and works out there in the best way possible. Even established authors have to do legwork to get, and keep, their name out there. Remember that even a big publishing house may not necessarily make you famous. After all, it's still your work and you're relying on someone else to promote it for you.

I did research on cost-effective ways to get my book published and printed and decided to utilize digital publishing with no up-front setup fees. I used online print-on-demand publishing companies such as to print hard copies of my books. I keep my initial production costs very low. I can edit my book if needed, create sequels faster, and change formats as needed.  Anything I can't do such as, say, the book cover design, I hire someone else to do it, just like a regular business would. I interview and hire the right people such as freelance comic book artists, graphic designers, editing services, etc. Being a publisher is also about getting the right services to create a quality product. There are new technologies today that help self-publishing become possible and online selling more convenient.

Sales and Royalties:
I utilized createspace's e-store and amazon for global digital inventory and online ordering. I can determine my own cost and what formats I want the book in. My royalties get paid much faster and I can keep track of them online. I can also keep track of what title is making sales.

Marketing, Publicity, and Promotion:
I became my own agent, publicist, and marketing company. I set up my own book signings and booths at conventions. Although I do have to pay for travel costs, at least I control when and where I make an appearance for marketing purposes. I can even make autographed copies available, which I set up through PayPal. Since I do a lot of my selling online, I cut down on the need to place the book in traditional bookstores, and I can sell pretty much anytime online. I learned how to write my own press releases and networked professionally with bloggers and media contacts to promote the releases and announcements of my works. I utilized social networking sites to get the word out about my books and used web sites as marketing and promotional platforms. I also write my own marketing blurbs and slogans (I get inspiration from tabloid newspapers and media headlines to come up with catchy slogans and ads). I actually look at flyers and junk mail to see what "headline" catches my eye. It's a lot more work but I don't have to pay anyone else to do it and it is a lot of fun. I learned Photoshop and created my own ads. I set up a publishing and promotional schedule and campaign, month by month, year by year, so I know what to promote and when and keep track of how and what promotional ad, blurb/slogan, or book is getting attention, and adjust things as I go along.

Running yourself as a Business:
I learned to balance creativity and business. You have to run yourself like a business as well and think like one if you want to get a "product" (your book) produced, promoted, and sold. It takes trial and error and practice, but that's basically what a publishing company does anyway. My method is DIY (Do it Yourself). To sum it up in the simplest terms, self-publishing is a mix of both business and creativity. You will have to run yourself as a business.You have to think like a business, while balancing your creative side. You essentially become your own publisher. Your project or creation is your "product". You have to design and create your own project/product, write your own press releases, find and hire the right people or service to help you (which I do, btw. If I can't do it myself or I don't know how, I personally hire or consult with experts.), book your own events, do your own promotion, market your own project, create merchandise, and run your business professionally to market your "product". It takes thought, time, effort, patience, research, worry, and energy.

Inspiration FAQ: Don't Pray to a Guardian Angel Statue

Frequently Asked Question: So what else inspired your writing?

People often ask me about more details about what inspired my writing.

It's what I observe in Churches.

Do you know what you're praying to when you kneel before a statue?

In my original trilogy novel "The Guardian, Revenant, and Dominion", which my Vampire Guardian Angels™ comic book series is based on, my characters disguise themselves as guardian angel statues in churches, breathing, watching, and listening for victims, and they can immediately be summoned if a desperate human prays to one.

The way people pray to these statues was also an inspiration for those scenes in my Vampire Trilogy novel, from a rather creepy experience I had observing the way people pray in church.

Now I’m not very comfortable around statues of saints or angels, especially the life-sized ones. One belief that I explore in my works is that churches and religious statues, angel statues in particular, harbor negative entities. I’ve seen people kneel before a statue and pour so much begging and despair and negative energy into this inanimate object. As a result, I believe that even these statues can, in a way, become possessed with negative energy because of all the desperation and despair they absorb from desperate people.

Thus creating very negative, resentful, annoyed, and angry angels.

I’ve heard people direct feelings of resignation, sadness, helplessness, and desperation into these statues, and these become possessed by negative energy, and the energy passes on to the next person who prays before it. Evil and negative entities can hide in statues, even if they are seen as "holy". Think of creepy angel statues in cemeteries, and the ghost stories that surround many of them. “Holy” statues don't repel negativity if they are in a negative environment and are constantly absorbing negative energies from people. And some of these statues are passed on from generation to generation, ensuring the continuation of that negative energy.

Now keep in mind I’m not trying to change anyone’s mind about how their belief in angels. I’m presenting an alternate view, something to think about when you watch my films and something to read about in my books .  There is a dark side to every belief, and why should we not question these beliefs? Because these beliefs may be clues to how negative and demonic entities possess us. They may exist where we don't expect to find them, and what we don't expect them to be.

So, try not to pray in desperation to something you don't really fully know. You could be praying to one of my evil guardian angel characters.

Who I am and About my Work

My name is Lia Scott Price. I'm a horror author, comic book creator/writer, and film producer. I'm the creator of Vampire Guardian Angels™. They are  unique characters from my vampire trilogy novel "The Guardian, Revenant, and Dominion". I've turned this trilogy novel into the Vampire Guardian Angels™ comic book series, and I am continuing to write sequels to the trilogy in comic book format.

But that's not all I did with the novel. I take scenes from the novel and turn them into feature films and film shorts, and there's also graphic novel version.

This is how I promote my characters: through low-budget filming and self-publishing. I use visual imagery to bring my characters and stories to life. I do that through Lia Scott Price Productions, my publishing and film production company. I self-publish my books and self-produce my films. I'm a self-taught film producer. I never went to film school. I learned how to film by volunteering at a local cable TV station. I self-promote, write my own PR, act as my own publicist, and self-market my works.

In my works,  I explore an alternate view to what a Guardian Angel is. I've turned them into disillusioned serial killer who is tired of answering our prayers, and who became a hungry vampire. My Guardian Angels rebel and kill instead of help people so they won't have to watch over them anymore, but there's also an additional twist. In the rest of the trilogy, a vampire invades Heaven and turns everyone's Guardian Angel into a vampire. They feed on the despairing who pray for and summon them.

I also explore the possibility that angels in the Bible were killers and even vampires, because of all the references to drinking of blood.

In regards to my films, I don't do typical slasher-style films. My films are more psychological in terms of presenting a more disturbing view of pop-culture icons such as Guardian Angels. I've been heavily influenced by The Twilight Zone, X-Files, Outer Limits, and Twin Peaks. I'm also experimental and unconventional in my filmmaking. My film shorts are sometimes more like a music video with imagery and very little dialogue, or they emphasize more on psychological impact through acting. I try to make them short and to the point, utilizing scenes adapted from my novel. My "calling card" of sorts is that I turn angel wings upside-down. At first it was meant to resemble wings folded back behind the angel, but then I started doing it on purpose because to me it meant turning the image of a Guardian Angel upside-down.

I was inspired by a church sermon about how Guardian Angels are always good saviors. It led me to question and challenge their image as protectors of mankind. I also believe that Guardian Angels can be negative entities that harm people. I believe they can be negative because we don't know who or what it is we are praying to for help. They may have fangs instead of halos!

As a horror novelist and comic book creator, it’s my job to screw things up a bit, even the image of a guardian angel. In fiction and horror, all things are possible.

A New Breed of Vampire

Do you believe in Guardian Angels? Do you pray for help to them?

Are you desperate? Suicidal? Want your problems to end?

Stop praying right now.

Because your very disillusioned Guardian Angel hates you. And they hate their job.

They've gone crazy trying to answer millions of prayers. They can't keep up.

You all expect to be saved, protected, watched over. And they are sick and tired of your prayers.

If you whine to one, they put you out of your misery. Because they've become serial killers.
But it gets even worse.

Your Guardian Angel is also a Vampire.

They kill you with sharp weapons instead of help you, so they don't have to answer your prayers anymore.

They target people in despair and use prayers as a homing device to find you, and feed on you.

They seduce, kill, lust for power, and exploit human weaknesses.

So do you really know who you're praying to?

Don't depend on a supernatural being to save you.

You don't know who you're summoning.

That's right. Your Guardian Angel is a Vampire.

Meet Lia Scott Price's fresh new twist on Guardian Angels: She's turned them into Vampires. Don't pray for help. That's how they find you. Because our whining drives them crazy. Even a Guardian angel has a darker side!

If you're tired of the same old Vampires, meet new Vampires with a disturbing twist: Guardian Angels are the new breed of Vampires.

Your everyday Guardian Angels are not the kind that help people anymore. Instead, they are Vampire Guardian Angels™ who only target and feed on people who pray for help to a Guardian Angel. Created by Horror Author Lia Scott Price, Vampire Guardian Angels use prayers as a "homing device" to target and feed on their victims.  They’re also not traditional Vampires that bite necks. They use sharp weapons, because slicing up a victim means less struggling and easier access to blood. They drink blood, but they also eat inner organs, like zombies do.

Because they are Guardian Angels, they  can’t be killed with the usual vampire-killing methods such as holy water, stakes through the heart, and crucifixes. They are a new and invincible Vampire breed. The only thing that can actually kill them is another Guardian, but there's a catch: That Guardian has to have turned back to good side.

Price challenges the image of Guardian Angels as good protectors. She turns them into disillusioned Angels that resent their protector roles. They go bad, become Vampires, and do very bad things that we think Guardian Angels should never do.

So stay safe. Don't summon them. Don't Pray in Vain.
