I'm so pleased to announce that a work of my poetry has been included in ONCE UPON THE LONGEST NIGHT: A Collection of Romantic Vampire Stories. You'll find it as an introduction to this stellar collection of intriguing stories coming December 21, 2018. Curated and edited by Charissa Weaks (also a contributor), the collection includes short stories and novellas by Elizabeth Vaughn, Dan Stout, Sara Dobie Bauer, Linda Robertson, Jodi Henry, Melinda Collins, and Alice Black.
The longest night. A vampire’s delight.
The winter solstice, a time of birth and rebirth, life and death, waning light and rising darkness. A time when those who flee the sun and crave the taste of blood find their greatest solace.
But one never knows what the longest night might hold.
Once Upon the Longest Night, a collection of adult paranormal romances, features eight novelettes of lovers and their battles against one of the greatest legends of our time: the vampire. A 15th-century seaman and the love of his life come face to face with a vengeful manjasang. In ancient Rome, a hunted priestess captured by a loyal centurion offers her aid to the enemy. With the help of a handsome Royal courier, a reluctant Romanian princess braves the curse flowing within her noble blood. Danger awaits when a vampire in the far reaches of North Dakota must endure the lethal cold to protect the woman she loves. And in a future New York, a broken general returns home for the Longest Night Ball where he meets a young male witch who might change his life forever.
This anthology combines vampire mythos and affairs of the heart with the sacred symbolism and magic of the winter season. Sit back and let us tell you a tale. Welcome to the Longest Night.
