I'm a writer (and newspaper editor, and musician, and producer) who has published 8 or 9 horror novels with Fawcett, including the much-imitated cult classic, "I, Vampire." I took about a 10-year hiatus from fiction after the publishing business ceased being fun. I've decided to get back into it via Kindle and CreateSpace and do it my way. I have a 45,000-word novel, "Telluride Blood: An I, Vampire Novel," in editing with my wife, also a professional editor, and another book, "World's End: An I, Vampire Novel," in the early stages. I've hired an artist to do the cover and some line drawings, maps and illustrations for embedding within the "Telluride Blood" text -- cool things I always wanted to do with the other books but couldn't quite pull off working with people in main-line publishing. The new book is the first in an "I, Vampire"-branded series, which will publish on about an every-six-month schedule. I am not in the least impressed with myself or "being a writer." I just do what I do because I like it.
