I Finally Made The Local Paper!

Bookmark and Share

Well, it finally happened! After publishing my own unique brand of vampire fiction for almost 11 years now, my local paper — the Canton Daily Ledger — has done an article on myself and the Hollywood Vampires at long last, whoo hoo!  Not only that, but I was on the cover of the Spotlight section, [...]

What’s So Hot About Cold Vampires?

Bookmark and Share

There’s something I’ve always wondered about vampire fiction, and while I’m going to throw out my own thoughts on it, I REALLY want some feedback on this, as it’s something I’m genuinely curious about.  Specifically… What’s so hot about cold vampires? Traditionally — particularly in Anne Rice’s take on vampires and more recently in True [...]

Dark Shadows 2012 — Vampire Fiction With A Dash Of Fun?

Bookmark and Share

I recently caught the trailer for Tim Burton’s upcoming Dark Shadows film — starring Johnny Depp, of course — and while I have to admit I’m not very familiar with the old Dark Shadows TV show, I have to say… I think this could be fun. I’ve heard groans from some quarters concerning the humor [...]

Vampire Fiction Is Dead… Or Is It?

Bookmark and Share

While publishing the Hollywood Vampires books is my primary focus when it comes to writing,  off-the-wall vampire fiction isn’t the ONLY thing I write.  At the moment, I’m shopping around a hard-edged, gruesome, horror book with tinges of dark satiric humor entitled Snatcher to potential publishers — those of you on the Hollywood Vampires mailing [...]

Clarisse… In The Flesh.

Bookmark and Share

Remember the post I did about how Christina Hendricks would make a good Clarisse a while back? I think this recent picture of Ms. Hendricks says it all.  Put some jeans and an old Death Angel tanktop on her, and the Hollywood Vampires’ resident heavy metal queen would be all set and ready to rock [...]
