An Acceptance

My story "The Princess and the Vampire" has been accepted for publication in Coach's Midnight Diner, a print anthology from the publishers of Relief: A Christian Literary Expression. According to the editor, "The Midnight Diner is a hardboiled genre anthology with a Christian slant." No word yet on when the third issue will be out. I love that cover from the second edition on the right.

A young, spoiled Princess commands her Chief Councilor to persuade the resident vampire to become her lover. The Chief Councilor has doubts and voices them, but the Princess is adamant. He oversees the extraction of the vampire's fangs in a dubious effort to render the vampire harmless. Promises are broken on all sides, and the vampire proves that a vampire is a vampire with or without fangs. 


  1. Congratulations! I knew you'd get it!

  2. AWESOME! Congrats, Jeff! I have the second edition of the Diner, and it's a great anthology! Very happy for you :).
