The Scientific Vampire

This weekend I published a new short story through Kindle Publishing. It’s available today! :3


It’s called the Vampires of Bifurquer Veine Marais (the Vampires of Branched Vein Swamp) and it’s a scientific take on vampires. For example, what could we expect from human-sized obligate blood-drinkers? Is there any veracity to the garlic and holy water myths? Would vampires really be super fast and super strong? And of course, the big question on everybody’s lips: would they really sparkle?

This first book doesn’t answer all the questions (it definitely tackles the sparkling one), but in subsequent stories we’ll address as much as possible. Who’s we? Why me, and the inscrutable Hannibal du Noir, protagonist, of course!  It’s wonderful to finally have du Noir boxing vampires on the page instead of brawling in my head. Life is also being given to Monsieur Roland Lambert, a chemist and mystic scholar. Together they’ll hunt monsters in the name of science! Get your chemistry bone on!

If you really really want to, you can find the story here. I would be stupidly happy if you did.

But a story published! I’m stupidly happy anyway. It’s time to dance the weekend away.
