Congrats to the other authors!

Now, long ago and very far away, I was a member of the Double-barreled Tiger Cubs, a Sherlock Holmes society at the UofI in Urbana-Champaign. Although I've written my share of Holmes fan-lit none of it is worth publishing (yet...) I did, however, get the premise for the story from Holmes' older (and smarter) brother Mycroft.


When I get my cover art package, I'll be posting the gorgeous cover designed by Sable Grey. Until then, here's my blurb...

Reclusive vampire Sapphire McKenzie lives in her penthouse apartment with fortress-like security run by her AI computer, Buffi. She’s been hailed as the greatest armchair detective since Mycroft Holmes and has solved every case she’s ever been asked to investigate – and even some she hasn’t. Her ex-lover, Drake Chastain,
is a retired basketball star living off his fame and fortune until women he’s dated begin disappearing, then reappearing…dead.

With Drake framed for murder, Sapphire has to leave behind the safety of her home to save the man she loves…or die trying.

This sounds very interesting. I have a recluse in one of my book too, though not a vampire.
