Welcome to The Dark Heaven - Home of Anne Rice's Vampires.
I have checked our affiliates if they are still online or not and found that many of them have gone. As I previously said, I have encountered some new websites about Anne Rice, so the page has been refreshed with active websites. And a new application form for affiliate has been uploaded.

As I am not a programmer and I do not have much knowledge on programming. I found free scripts on the internet for my site building. Unfortunately, some installed scripts have faded out and no version upgrade after years.
One of the scripts I used is FanUpdate, that is a blog script for multi-sites. I have used for years as site news. It is useful but it is really not user-friendly when removing spams (no batch removal function). I have got fed up with removing the spams one by one or removed them in phpMyAdmin. So, I have decided to use another script.
After searching on the internet, not many scripts fit to my requirements, i.e, light and can be embeded in multi-sites. I have given a try on Cutenews, but unfortunately, I cannot login to the dashboard after several repeated installations. Finally, I install WordPress, which I have used for my personal blog for years. Though it is not light, but it is well-maintained and able to manage the blog for multi-sites.
So, our update blog has been back again!
The Vampire Coven Online Resource Centre

Sorry for being idle for such a long time. Luckily, our sites are still alive.
Recently, I have planned to change the hosting service due to the issue of IP frequent change. However, I have encountered some script problems when switching host and causing errors. Therefore, I have a detailed review on the installed scripts.
The script causing errors is from one of our sites, TVC Online Resource Centre, for displaying the resource at The Dark Heaven and The Vampire Coven. I cannot fix the errors, so I only can remove it. And I think it is hard to maintain TVC Online Resource Centre under WordPress, I have decided to close it. Probably, the resource stuff will appear at The Dark Heaven but I really need more time to think on it.

The adaptations to the work of Anne Rice has been completed. I am quite surprised that there are so many comics have been released. The covers of the comics are very beautiful. I am very looking forward to the comics of Interview with the Vampire: Claudia’s Story. It will be released in Nov 2012.

When planning about the coming content, I just think the original layout is not user-friendly enough. So, I base on the existing design and do a revamp. By adding a menu tree at the left, I hope it helps the visitors to browse the site easier. I love the icons of the tree menu, bats, fangs and tombs. And with a wider layout, the content, usually in long paragraphs, can be displayed in a more tidy way. Moreover, I have re-grouped the content for some sections.
