Story Acceptance!

I have had a long, hard drought for me since my last story acceptance. I had even reached a point where I had started questioning myself–Had I lost my talent? Had I ever really had it in the first place? While rejection is part of #writerlife, there’s a certain point where my imposter syndrome kicks in and it’s hard to keep sending stories out.

I’m really excited by this acceptance as it is a story unlike any I’ve written before. While I’ve done paranormals, I’ve never written a vampire story. Nor have I ever written erotic horror.

For as Long as You Need Me

A vampire who only hunts men.

A war veteran with PTSD.

Will she be his death or his salvation

Here’s a sneak peek…

Felicity pursued her newest prey. He hadn’t done anything wrong, yet. But if Felicity had learned anything in two hundred years, it was that with men, it was almost always yet. She just had to wait for him to fail her test.

So she followed Sam, and waited for him to slip up.

Why wouldn’t he give her a reason to kill him?

He was helping a woman with her groceries. Surely he’d make a pass at her? He didn’t. He called his mother. He always said please and thank you. He called women “miss” and “ma’am.” He tipped shoeshine boys and newspaper boys. He was irritatingly good.

He didn’t fail the first week. Or the second. He’d passed, so by the rules of her game, she should move on. Instead, she persisted in watching him—three weeks, four weeks—daring him to slip up.

Felicity was following Sam down a darkened street when a car backfired. Sam shrank down, covering his head, and let out a cry. Without thinking, Felicity shot forward, wondering what had happened.

“Are you okay?” she asked him.

I hope you’re excited to see where the story goes!
