Vampire Madam #1: Animals of London — New Release

Greetings, everyone.

I’m taking the self-publishing leap with my first eBook on Amazon, Vampire Madam #1: Animals of London.
Half-sister vampire madams in Jack the Ripper’s London encounter men with characteristics of werebeasts, and the younger sister risks everything when she discovers a new passion. Jack the Ripper’s prostitute-slashing murders fill the news and arouse horror throughout London. Near the murder sites, Daria, her half-sister Theodora, and a young prostitute they rescued react to the threat of increased patrols outside their house. Brave, strapping men, including men with animal natures unlike any Daria has ever encountered, stalk Whitechapel’s streets seeking the knife-wielding monster. Despite the threat to the vampire madams’ house, Daria doesn’t want to give up hunting men in the streets. Her discovery of a new kind of man and a new kind of feast threatens more than her brothel.

Note: This 3850-word short story stands alone. There’s no cliff-hanger, so it doesn’t require you to acquire more episodes unless you feel enticed to do so. It’s an adult vampire story, with adult themes, set in November, 1888. Everyone in this story is out of high school. Although the story contains no words banned by the FCC, these vampire madams treat humans as nameless meals and run an exclusive brothel in London’s steamy, squalid East End to lure in men for fun and food. Not for those easily offended or seeking YA-style vampires. No sparkling, no whining, and humans are prey.

Classified as erotic horror, dark fantasy.

I write speculative fiction, science fiction, horror, fantasy, cross-genre, unclassified, non-fiction, scripts, poetry and dreams. I'm branching out into multimedia projects. My Vampire Madam series is available on Amazon. The first episode is Animals of London. My work has appeared in anthologies, literary journals, newspapers and on websites under a trio of pen names. I made my first sale to the Pan Book of Horror: Dark Voices series.
