An update from the bat cave…

evolveHello my darklings! Yes, I’ve been away for a painful amount of time from this site. Life has been an absolute whirlwind since I returned from New Orleans with several projects keeping me insanely busy. I have been pouring myself into the development of the Nightshade Vampire Boutique, adding new products, blog posts, and feature pages for my patrons. If you haven’t stopped by to check it out please take a moment to peruse the site at and leave a comment letting me know what you think, what products you’d like to see, etc. We are still hoping to have a physical storefront by the end of 2013 and with your continued support we can make that a reality.

The other massive project that has dominated my time is the HIGH STAKES vampire anthology. I am nearing the end of the editing process and can safely say that you are in for a real treat with this collection of new vampire tales from some of the greatest horror writers in the genre including Jonathan Mayberry, Joe McKinney, and Jeff Strand! HIGH STAKES will be released from Evil Jester Press in late January/early February. More information can be found at or on Facebook at

Last, but most certainly not least, is the Austin Vampire Ball. Production is well underway and the official website will be up and running in the next week or so. We have confirmed opening acts Dead Tree Duo and Diminished 7 for both the pre-party and the main event. We are aiming for the sky when it comes to the planning of the weekend-long festivities and assure you that this will be one event you will not want to miss! Please take a moment to “like” our facebook page at and be sure to check out the main site when it is launched.

That’s all for now. I will post a more detailed blog soon!
