So I'm Blogging Now...

Well, hello. This is my first blog. Not sure how I even started this thing, but we'll see what happens anyway. I suppose I started this blog to find a literary agent. My first novel, The Unique Destruction of an Ordinary Soul has been finished for some time now, though I am constantly revising it. Just for the record, I have received at least four rejection letters. So I'm on my way.

It would be my pleasure to share with you online some of that first story. This upcoming week I plan on mailing queries to at least two agents I believe could fit the bill nicely.

Just to tell you a little bit about me, I am a pretty big vampire fan. I suppose I've been so since I first watched The Lost Boys. Or perhaps it was my mother's affinity for Dark Shadows, who knows. And since high school I've been writing vampire things in one way or another. Whether or not I could ever sustain a living on writing alone is absolutely trivial. I just want to create a universe for these vampires to exist, to love and to hate, to kill and to save. My ultimate heroes are Bram Stoker, Hideyuki Kikuchi, and Anne Rice.

One thing I hope to gain from this blog is to meet other young vampire writers. I would love to meet someone as passionate about the undead to wax vampiric with. Or just newbie writers, in general! So, if you're out there, my literary twin - hit me up.

Okay, one blog down, many more to come. Cool...
