I recently had a photoshoot with one of the most amazing photographers I’ve had the pleasure of working with, Murphy Hunter of D6Pix. Here is a sneak peak of the amazing images she captured! I highly recommend contacting her for all of your photography needs!
For those of you who follow me on Twitter and Facebook then you have already seen my new blogging adventures at the Museum of the Weird in Austin, Texas. I have a new article I post nearly every day of the week on their website about the bizarre news of the world. If you’ve missed the earlier posts you can find all of them here:
Enjoy the odd tales and thank you for your continued support of my work! XOV””VOX

Last August the Nightshade Vampire Boutique was founded. Since that time I have worked hard to continue to grow the online store and expand the assortment of unique vampire products and artwork for my loyal patrons. Now it is time to take the store to the next level and with your help I can make that a reality this year. I have said from the beginning that I would like to see a physical storefront for the Nightshade Vampire Boutique by the end of 2013 or early 2014 in Austin, Texas. This takes captial.
Instead of going the traditional impersonal route of getting a small business loan, I wanted to try the crowd-sourcing avenue of revenue raising. Thus, I have started a GoFundMe account for those members of the public that would like to become an investor in the Boutique. What I can offer are the incentives listed on the GoFundMe page. Plus, for all investments OVER $100, we will give a standard 50% discount on your purchases for as long as you shop at the store, as well as a repayment of your investment when the store makes a profit after the investment is made with no longer than a year’s time. All investors will be listed on the Investors page of the website (soon to be added) with a link or banner to whatever site or store you prefer. Or, if you rather, your investment can be anonymous.
Please visit http://www.gofundme.com/NightshadeInvestors for more information.
This is an unusual way of growing one’s business, but for me it feels more personal and creative. I hope you will consider becoming an investor to help this business grow and thrive in the years to come. Thank you for your continued support of the Nightshade Vampire Boutique. It truly means the absolute world to me.

Yesterday the literary world lost another great voice and a dear friend. Rick Hautala suffered a heart attack and passed away. It’s another reminder of just how fragile and fleeting life is. We loved him dearly and will remember and miss him always. His work will live on in our hearts and minds forever… Rest in Peace, Rick.
The first part of this youtube clip is Rick Hautala receiving his Lifetime Achievement Award from the HWA in Salt Lake City last year. I am honored to have been there to experience it in person…
The time is finally upon us! The stories have been written. A beautiful cover has been created. And now it is time to release this little bat into the night. The highly anticipated new anthology of new vampire tales, HIGH STAKES, is slated to be released on March 26th! We are all incredibly excited about this new collection and cannot wait to hear what readers have to say. We will be posting information on how to order HIGH STAKES in the next few days so please check back soon. Thank you to all of the authors for their hard work and to Evil Jester Press for their belief in our work.
Pete just sent us this photo of the press galley of HIGH STAKES this morning. It’s always a little surreal when you finally see a book bound and looking “bookish.”
