The right time to write about vampires.
What can I say about Raistan?
He's been haunting my mind since 2009 and I hope he will continue for many centuries more.
He doesn't sparkle.
He's not a fashion addicted.
He's not a gentle person (most of the time, at least).
He's not generous.
He's n... Read more of this blog post »

“If you’re going to dump me, just get on with it,” she said, furious. Misery and fury swamped her, and her entire body trembled. “Don’t think I can’t see it. You’ve been dancing around this for weeks and I told you that I’d fight you, but . . .” She trailed off, the words dying.

Let’s say you’re struck with a fantastic new concept. What if (for example) the battle for the souls of humanity is even more pitched than we know?
