Rainbow Snippets is desperate for a bite

My tongue- (and fangs-?) in-cheek vampire short story, Bloodlust and Bylines (previously published as Becoming the Spoils), is out today from JMS Books – and if you buy from the publisher’s site, there’s a 20% discount for a limited time only.

Here’s a snippet to whet your appetite:

It seemed like such a good idea at the time, when Art told me about the club. Said he reckoned I’d find what I was looking for there. Well, viewed objectively, he wasn’t wrong, was he? Good old Art. Must remember to thank him. Of course, I’ll have to go and haunt a friendly medium first.

Bloodlust and Bylines


Investigative journalist Frank would do anything for the next big scoop, and a chance to break the news to the world that vampires really exist is too good to pass up. But his fact-finding mission to an undead hangout takes a terrifying turn when he’s locked in a cellar with a starving—if sexy—bloodsucker and no escape in sight.

Forlorn vampire Viktor hasn’t had a bite in months, ever since falling foul of über-vamp The Mistress and being imprisoned for his sins. Delivered to his cell like Meals on Wheels, Frank’s the tastiest morsel he’s seen in a long time. Viktor can’t wait to get his fangs into him—and there’s something about Frank that makes Viktor lust for more than just his blood.

To escape the mysterious Mistress’s prison, predator and prey will have to work together—if, that is, they can manage to rein in their baser appetites for long enough!
