Gotta Brag: Dying to Live Still On Track for Oct. 31 Release, & Guess Who has Top Billing!

It’s really not all that big a deal — someone’s name has got to be first — and the only “news” is that Diabolic Publications LLC’s  “no sparklers, please” vampire anthology DYING TO LIVE Image(cf. July 24, March 9) is still scheduled for a Halloween release.  But I ran across their ad blurb on Facebook today and, well, I hope no one minds.

My story in this is called “The Preacher,” inspired in part by a late 19th century spate of suspected vampire cases in Connecticut and Rhode Island  — yes, right here in the US of A — the last of which concerning a woman named Mercy Brown may also have been, in part, an inspiration for Bram Stoker’s iconic novel DRACULA.  Who’d have thought?

But the important thing is, in Mercy Brown’s and  in other contemporary New England cases, none of these vampires sparkled either.


  1. Wow! Congrats on Top Billing, Jim!
