Light Play is one of eight stories in our Ravenous anthology. Though we’re focusing on that story this week, here’s a taste of some of the other posts on the book.

 


On Writing Vampires

Don’t kill your food.

You need blood. You need the prey to give it to you voluntary. You need prey to survive. Kill your food, and sooner or later your food will kill you. They walk in the sun. They breed like vermin. Don’t start that war.

I write in all kind of genres: science fiction, fantasy, horror, crime, erotica. Every genre has its own traditions, its own do’s and don’t’s, but they all share something: your story universe needs to be consistent. It must work somehow.

7 Classic Movies To Remake…

With Vampires

As you may have guessed by the title, “We’ll Always Have Rome,” my story in the Ravenous anthology, was inspired by the classic Casablanca, a tale of star-crossed lovers amid World War II.

Dark. Brooding. Tortured. Sexy.

Vampires are a mystery, morphing through history from maligned villains to sparkling saviors and back again. They can be the ultimate bad boys, the supreme seductresses, or the evil monsters. They fascinate and repel us at the same time. What other creature can steal into your bedroom in the depths of the night to stalk or protect? What other ancient being is so accessible yet so powerful? What other enigma is desired as much as feared?

Cross the threshold into a world of insatiable heroes and voracious heroines. RAVENOUS explores saucy, sexy, and sweet tales: of forbidden vampire/vampire hunter love, vampire threesomes in space, kink as only a vampire could enjoy it… and so much more.
