Matt Cole (mattdeancole) | 20 comments The Blood of Cowards, a vampire short story, is FREE in the Kindle store Aug 2-6

In this tale of gothic horror, the vampire, Lazarus Kalon, is on his way back to Atlanta to liberate his treasure before the city falls to Sherman's army. It is then, suffering from a prolonged thirst in the Appalachians, that Lazarus encounters three rebel deserters. As Lazarus closes in on the deserters, intending only to satisfy his thirst, he is soon overcome by a supernatural awareness that one of these soldiers may be worthy of the immortal gift.

“The Blood of Cowards is an impressive example of a successful short story, where each word is carefully chosen and each sentence fits perfectly together to compose a harmonious and powerful story."

"The story unfolds with a vivid description of the surroundings, which makes you feel like standing right next to the vampire Lazarus, hearing the gunfire and smelling the stench of war, but also perceiving the beauty of the countryside.”

“Don’t miss Matt Cole’s dark fantasy short story, The Blood of Cowards.”

Graeme Rodaughan I'll give it a go.
