Though technically the Hollywood Vampires were created in the spring of 1997, this site didn’t come into being until February 21st, 1998 — which was pretty much an eternity ago in web terms. Through various iterations, flurries of activity, quiet spells as life needed to be dealt with, and a whole TON of stories and artwork, the Hollywood Vampires have soldiered on…
And I’m honored to welcome you to the latest — and greatest — version of the site thus far. A labor of love that’s literally taken me MONTHS to complete, everything on the site has been cleaned, polished, and honed to give you a truly unique experience in the world of vampire fiction.
Whether you’ve been with me since the late 90′s or have just discovered the Hollywood Vampires, I welcome you — I don’t care if you’re young, old, a rocker, a geek, a goth, guy, girl, undecided, dinosaur or whatever. The Hollywood Vampires attract a broad range of readers from all over the world — from South Africa to Britain to California and beyond! — and I’m happy to have every single one of you aboard… and am deeply grateful so many of you have stuck with me for so long.
Though I would love to get rich doing it, it’s the fans — YOU — that makes it all worth it. Despite getting the cold shoulder from the mainstream vampire fiction publishers because I don’t write anything like Stephanie Meyer or Anne Rice, I’ve kept at this because you guys LOVE it… and so do I. Screw the “mainstream” — we’re having to damned much fun to stop!
So please, explore the site, check out the new blog, take a gander at Nathaniel D. Smith’s eye-popping artwork, read the extensive character bios…
And drink deep of the hilariously human, rock ‘n roll-fueled vampire fiction found in the brand-new store! Within, you’ll find over 30 short stories, novellas, and novels to literally keep you busy for weeks, if not months… and there’s plenty more to come in the future! Not only that, but you’ll find plenty of tales that are free or going for as low as a dollar, all available for INSTANT download anywhere in the world.
If you think you’ve read or seen it all in the world of vampire fiction… think again. You ain’t seen NOTHIN’ yet.
