Tomb by Rebecca Goings

"If, in your mortal prison, you wish not to be alone, then in the cellar you shall find him, behind a wall of stone."

Douglas McCarthy is a vampire haunted by the screams of his victims. After killing a woman accidentally, he vows he will never kill again, and entombs himself within the walls of his own cellar.

Diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer, Holly Cartwright knows she only has months to live. Buying the Whispering Pines Plantation with her life savings was, perhaps, the best thing she ever did. But Holly doesn't care that the manor appears to be haunted, as she'll soon be joining the "ghosts" herself.

But what she discovers behind the walls is more than she ever dreamed possible...


Can you tell I'm a little excited for this novella?? :D This will be my first published work at Cobblestone Press, and I'm so very thrilled to be a part of it all. Funny thing is, I submitted my idea on a whim. A friend of mine told me about it, and I happened to have a vampire idea perkolating on the back burner. I scrolled through the cards to see if one of them corresponded with my idea.

BAM! The "Tomb" card fit perfectly. I wrote up my 1000 word first chapter and off I went. The rest, as they say, is history. I'm very honored to be included with these fine ladies in the Vampire Oracle series. Now here's hoping I can write a story worth of it! :D
