Blog Posts–and an Upcoming Book–that Inspired “The Vampire’s Lure”

The blog posts that inspired “The Vampire’s Lure” are not about vampires but about the lure of youthful beauty common in real life. Heather Starsong’s novel Never Again, slated to be released this August by Barking Rain Press—and edited by me—concerns a woman who is not a vampire but whose adventures take her one step further… or, more accurately, backward. In most vampire stories, the vampire ceases to age at the point of his change. In Never Again, eighty-year-old Clara meets beings from another planet that make her younger. Heather’s website tells more about this intriguing soft science fiction plot: http://heatherstarsong.com/never-again/

The following blog posts explore issues about youthful beauty and its lure, its definitions, and the varying uses of its power:

  1. “Never Again” was published in August 2015. You can order it on Amazon or from the publisher at http://barkingrainpress.org/never-again/. I also helped edit a vampire novel, “The Stage,” by Catherine Russell. Its sequel, “Exit, Stage Left” is currently in the content editing stage. Next I’ll copyedit it. I’ll let you know when it comes out.
