Since releasing my first novel two years ago, I’d been wanting to collaborate with another writer on a short story or two. I knew I wanted it to be an independent writer, someone with their own mind and with a distinct, declarative style. It didn’t matter to me if they were published or not, I just wanted it to be someone unique.
A.Slawson, author of Daemian PenDragon's Vampire Journal on Twitter (@SlawsonTony) was that person.
I happened upon Mr. Slawson via another Twitter follower’s recommendation and was immediately hooked by his Vampire Journal. He writes with an eloquence that is reminiscent of an Elizabethan-era tale, but with a modern voice of a man of today. His characters are angry, edgy, and reflective, but still able to see the beauty in a world that has long since lost its luster.
After contacting him, we corresponded frequently and the story was born. For awhile, I wasn’t certain that it would be completed, or ever see the light of day. You see, it isn’t easy writing a story “long distance”…but I think regardless of the miles, we’ve created a good little tale. Enjoy!
