The Vampire Next Door

Another short story came to my head while I was working on Beautiful Sins, so I ended up closing out my word doc and starting a new one. So, here it is:
Life is good for Zoe Leonard. She’s the most popular girl in school, the captain of the cheerleading squad, and she’s also an active member of the choir at her grandfather’s church. Calumet, Michigan, a small town with a population of a whopping 800 residents is the only home she knows. That is, until her mother meets Julian, a freelance writer that comes into town and sweeps Zoe’s mother off her feet. Tori, the daughter of the town’s reverend has always been outcast by the town. When Julian offers her the opportunity of a lifetime, she jumps at the chance to finally break free of the one place she’s felt has always kept her a prisoner.

Zoe’s not looking forward to moving to the one place on earth that has been classified as “the hell world” by her friends and family. She’s moving to The Dark Coast, a large portion of the U.S. that is ruled by constant cloud cover. When they arrive to their new house in a small subdivision in Forest Grove, Oregon, everything seems great. While Julian and Tori rebuild their lives together, Zoe tries to grow accustomed to her new surroundings. It’s summer, and the subdivision is filled with children her age, but Zoe finds difficulty connecting with them. That is, until she meets Tristan, her next door neighbor. Rumor has it, Tristan never communicates with anyone in the community. He’s irresistibly handsome, and his eyes seem filled with secrets. He’s known for being rude and vague, but something’s different this time. Will Zoe accept him as a friend when she discovers his secret?

It should be live sometime next week. It's already up for sale at smashwords. I've also made a trailer for this short:

I spent a few hours doing some light cleaning to the site. It still needs a lot of work, but between my writing projects, marketing, editing, creating book trailers, and designing book covers, I barely have the time. I'm going to stop through my two other websites that are live and do some work there as well.
