Why I Can’t Wait for New Hero


I cannot wait for “Fangs and Formaldehyde” to debut in the New Hero anthology. No word yet on the street date, but the conversation in my head went something like this:

    READER: What’s so different about your vampires?

    ME: Well, you know how some vampires sparkle?

    READER: Yeah…

    ME: Mine blow up!

    READER: They blow up? *confused look*

    ME: Yep! *grins like an idiot* If a vampire gets too emotional in my setting, they explode into little pieces! It’s very messy.

    Mood: Philosophical crossed with excitement.
    Caffeinated Beverages Consumed: Two.
    Work-Out Minutes Logged Yesterday: Half an hour walk
    Yesterday’s Projects: RPG, Novel, short story
    In My Ears: Computer fan. About to put some tunes in, though.
