So today I have a lot of posts that will be going live. First off I have this great tour to share with you. I picked Vampires Don't Sparkle for this one seeing as I have been reviewing the stories in it for Short Story Saturday posts for a few weeks now. Below you will find all the book information and the editor info, plus a great giveaway!
Vampires Don’t Sparkle! (editor Michael West): What would you do if you had unlimited power and eternal life?Would you…go back to high school? Attend the same classes year after year, going through the pomp and circumstance of one graduation after another, until you found the perfect date to take to prom? Would you…spend your days moping and brooding, finding your only joy in a game of baseball on a stormy day? Or would you…do something else? Anything else?
The authors of this collection have a few ideas; some fanciful, some humorous, and some as dark as an endless night. Join us, and discover what it truly means to be “vampyre.”
