For your Friday reading pleasure, here is an excerpt from the first Damned Lies novel, simply entitled Vampire.
From Damned Lies Chapter 24:
"So when do we kill the vampire?" I asked.
The sun was going down and we were in the middle of nowhere. Sister Nancy said the vampire lived in an abandoned church a few dusty roads off the highway.
"You don't have to help," she said again.
"But I want to help," I said enthusiastically.
She sighed, which I know some of you, My Dear Readers, are also doing.
You're sitting here thinking, "Oh, he would never volunteer to help kill a vampire. I wouldn't." You'd think I would be too scared, too weirded out, or think the nun too crazy for me to help out. You'd think there would be reasons and excuses and nervousness, all in the name of somehow avoiding the task. And you would be wrong. Because of course I want to kill a vampire.
