It's tough being a warlock in Washington, DC. Magic doesn't pay the bills, and sometimes you have to take on other jobs.
I'm Dafydd Smith, and I'm a warlock. No, not the "sold my soul to the devil" type warlock. The "male witch" kind. (Everyone gets those confused, so don't feel bad.)
One day I'm minding my own business, heading out for a bite to eat after a hard day exorcising ghosts, when I run into a vampire. Yeah, you heard that right. A vampire. With his fangs in some guy's neck. It was kind of sexy and scary all at the same time.
What did I do? Well, read on, and I'll tell you how I got rid of a ghost haunting a vampire. If you're a fan of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files, you'll probably like this one. Especially if you're into sexy, gay, magical heroes. (Yeah, that's me. Stop laughing!)
Oh, and just so you don't get the wrong idea, this story is really a novella. That's why my author priced it so low. (Darn her! I'm worth more.) But there's more tales (full novels) coming, so stay tuned. Hanging out with a vampire can get pretty exciting. Tell my author to get cracking on our next installment.
And she's finally gotten with the program. Updated to include a preview of the next book in the series, The Case of the Werewolf Puppy.
The plot moves along well, replete with tongue-in-cheek first-person comments by the narrator, sometimes deftly interrupting the serious account with Am-I-really-talking-to-a-vampire? quips. It tells the story well, the dialogue is believable when one considers the reader has entered the make-believe world of vampires and such, and the setting—Washington, D. C., especially the Metro subway system, would mean something to D.C. area residents and visitors.
