I’ve just returned home from a busy but awesome weekend at Phoenix Comicon and learned that the second edition of Blood Sampler is now available for order. This little book collects vampire flash fiction written by Lee Clark Zumpe and myself. In addition the stories, you’ll find illustrations by Marge Simon. In her review of the first edition for the ConNotations newspaper, Chris Paige said, “If you like vampire stories, this may be the best seven dollars you can spend.” Inflation has bumped the price up a dollar, but I hope you’ll still find it an engaging collection. She gives a great description of the collection saying, “There’s humor, horror, and history, loss, love and legends, sex seduction and surprises.” She finished her review by saying, “This sampler would make a great Valentine’s Day gift for or from our gothic fen.” I’m delighted to see the collection back in print.
You can purchase the book directly from the publisher at: http://store.albanlake.com/product/blood-sampler/

Learning about Blood Sampler wasn’t the only good news I received after returning from Phoenix Comicon. I also learned that my story “Born Again Miners” about a Voodoo priest from Louisiana finding a new source of cheap labor in the mines of the old west has been accepted for the anthology Zombiefied III edited by Carol Hightshoe. I’m honored to be included in another volume. The original Zombiefied collection was great fun and you can check it out at Amazon.com or Smashwords.
