The Acceptable Vampire

Well, it looks like my short story The Blood of the Martyrs has been accepted for Black Lace's vampire anthology Lust at First Bite! I am really delighted, and can think of no better excuse for posting a couple of screen-caps from Dracula 2000.

Of course the first thing I did on being told was re-read the story, and I found a massive and awful typo in paragraph 2...
*Bangs head off desk*

My vampire Aronne doesn't look anything like Gerard Butler's version. He's a red-eyed albino who is not only a savage predator but a bona-fide saint. Set in modern Venice, The Blood of the Martyrs is a tale of dark and crazy Catholicism. I'll post an excerpt as we get nearer to publication.

In the meantime, ask yourself: how did Dracula get tan lines?
