Blood Sampler and Luftgeist Updates

This month, Alban Lake Publishing will be releasing the second edition of Blood Sampler that I co-wrote with Lee Clark Zumpe. I just got a look at the new cover by Laura Givens, which I think looks fabulous. You can learn more about the book by clicking the “Blood Sampler” link on the right. Right now, that page still shows the first edition, but I’ll update the page once the new edition is released.


Also, Carol Hightshoe has just announced the full table of contents for the anthology, These Vampires Don’t Sparkle, Volume I currently scheduled for this autumn from Sky Warrior Books. This looks like a great lineup.

I’m especially pleased to see my Scarlet Order vampire story “Luftgeist” anthologized. This is one of my favorite Scarlet Order vampire tales and tells how Desmond Lord Draco fell afoul of the Nazis during World War II and escaped aboard the Hindenburg only to confront a valkyrie-like alien. Sparks definitely fly even if there are no sparkly vampires! I’ll keep you posted as I learn more news about the book.
