My Vampire Mistress is my latest collaboration with my artist-friend callmeplisskin, a 20+ page story that includes 4 of his black and white works of art in addition to the full-color cover.
Here’s a snippet of what’s to come:
“Alynnya, how delightful to see you again! I had a–feeling–that you were in town!” Valencia’s eyes darted up to the top of my head, where my cat ears popped out of my hair. “Oh! And I see you’ve come ready to play too! I am so pleased–and Yannos will be, too.”
I didn’t say anything at first–just smiled. Then I slipped my coat off my shoulders and stood there in nothing but my costume. I sank to my knees, and then leaned forward onto my hands. I grasped the end of my leash with one hand and held it up above my head toward Valencia.
“It would be my pleasure to serve you again, my mistress.”
Valencia laughed sharply, and suddenly I wondered if I had made a terrible error in judgment.
“My dear, dear Alynnya!” she exclaimed. “I see that you have learned so much since I last saw you! I cannot tell you how delighted I am to see you at my door like this.” She reached down and took my leash from my hand, and gave it a gentle tug.
“Come along dear,” she said, turning and leading me into the house.
Those who know me know that Halloween is probably my favorite holiday of the year…at least my 2nd favorite, anyway. I usually go all out, hostessing a ‘spook house’ in my garage (nicknamed the “Gruesome Garage” by my friend callmeplissken).
That’s also my excuse for why I didn’t get my sh*t together and post this until today…anyhoo…
For the second year in a row, I commissioned a special Halloween image from him as a gift for all my friends over on the discord site, as a thank you for their support (and occasionally, their tolerance of my crap).
