The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance II, an anthology of vampire romances including "Coven of Mercy" by Deborah Cooke

Out of print digital cover for Coven of Mercy by Deborah Cooke

Several years ago, I was invited to contribute a vampire short story to the anthology The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance II (the title was Love Bites in the UK.) I wanted to do something different from the usual vampire romance, and Coven of Mercy was the result. The Mammoth Book is still available, with the cover at right. This story was also available for a while as a digital short with the cover at the far right, but now has the wonderful new cover you see above left.

Beguiled, a collection of short stories and novellas by Claire Delacroix and Deborah Cooke

 

Coven of Mercy is also included in my short story and novella collection Beguiled, which is available in both print and digital formats.

I’ve been wanting to expand the world of the coven since first writing this story. Maybe the new cover will prompt me to do that.

Short and Spooky Reads

At this time of year, people have believed that the veil between this world and the realm of the dead was thinner than usual. There was a full moon this week, as well, just adding to the spookiness factor. I suppose it makes sense that as the days grow shorter and the nights seem darker, that we think about ghost stories and things that go bump in the night. This is a great time of year for horror writers and movies.

I don’t tend to write horror, but I do like ghost stories and spooky stories. I do have a couple of seasonal stories that might interest you – both are 99 cents.

First there’s a spooky little short story of mine that’s available only on Amazon for Kindle. It is NOT a romance, and since it’s just over 3,000 words, it doesn’t have a table of contents. I like it, though, and I think of it every fall when I’m walking in the wind.

It’s called The Leaves and here’s the link.

Halloween is also a time for the undead to rise. I’m not written many vampire romances, although I did love the vampire books written by Anne Rice. Here’s the only one of mine published so far – it’s a short story written for The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance II. The antho was published simultaneously in the UK and I loved their title – the UK house called it Love Bites. My story is called Coven of Mercy, and is a little bit different take on vampires. It again is a short story but is a romance – this is about 10,000 words in length You can buy the whole antho, or you can just try my story. Here’s the Amazon link, the B&N link, the Smashwords link, the KOBO link and the Sony link. It’s also on Apple, but the iTunes links are territory-dependent, so you’ll need to hunt it down yourself.

Happy Halloween, everyone! I hope the goblins at your door tonight are just looking for candy!
