“fighters couldn’t do were bite or eye gauge.”
Martin Lastrapes, The Vampire, the Hunter, and the Girl

“Sometimes a vampire will cut himself open and use the blood to heal a human’s wounds.” “I hate to break it to you,” Adam said, “but that’s fiction. The only thing my blood will do is give you more blood to clean up.”
Martin Lastrapes, The Vampire, the Hunter, and the Girl

“Stories are for joining the past to the future. Stories are for those late hours in the night when you can't remember how you got from where you were to where you are. Stories are for eternity, when memory is erased, when there is nothing to remember except the story.”
Tim O'Brien, The Things They Carried

Thank you so much, Melissa! I'm thrilled to hear you enjoyed my novel. There probably won't be another novel, but I have been thinking about a series of short stories about the Divinity and the various folks who live in it and are affected by it.

Thanks again!
