Friday Reads | Sluggo Snares a Vampire

Friday again! This week I’ve read Sluggo Snares a Vampire by Rick R. Reed. It was just what I was in the mood for and I might have laughed at the end…I’m sure that says more about me than the story, though.

Sluggo hangs around a lot of chatrooms looking for love. He’s presenting himself as Sir Raven, a wild-eyed Cuban stud, in reality, he’s not that much of stud. But, despite his receding hairline, a man takes interest in him. They’re chatting and then things turn weird.

I loved how this story turned creepy really quick. A good horror story where vampires don’t sparkle and piercing fangs don’t result in a mind-blowing orgasm. Not that I mind those kinds of stories now and then, but sometimes it’s nice when the monsters stay evil.

This is a free story (for now at least) so give it a go!

Book Cover Sluggo Snares a Vampire by Rick R. ReedWhen Sluggo cruises online chat rooms, he isn’t looking for a hook-up; he’s looking for love. But love has a way of being elusive, especially when you’re not being honest. Presenting himself as “Sir Raven,” Sluggo promises his chat room cohorts he’s the “master of the night.”

And then he meets someone who challenges him — someone who claims the title “master of the night” as his own. TepesAllure’s enigmatic and flirtatious messages to Sluggo start out as fun banter, but quickly turn to eerie disquiet.

As the night unfolds, so do the advances of TepesAllure … and even when Sluggo tries to escape, he finds that getting out is not nearly as easy as getting in.

NOTE: This story appears in the author’s collection, Unhinged.

Genres: Gay / Erotic Horror / Dark Fantasy / Vampire

The Lords of Lettuce

A couple of days ago The Lords of Lettuce, a sequel to The Maddest of Men, became available on Amazon. I, of course, meant to write a blog post about it and I, apparently, didn’t. So here we are, The Lords of Lettuce is available, yay!

In the fair city of Carona society is falling apart. Drug lords are ruling the streets, the police are corrupt, and Grayham and Creed, our main characters, aren’t the finest men ever having lived on this Earth.

When Creed’s friend suddenly goes missing the two men have to work together to find him before it’s too late. The search will take them into parts of the city where they aren’t welcome and where Grayham, as Cham’s right-hand man, can’t be seen.

I love writing this series. I love the freedom that comes with writing deranged characters who make up their own reality, decide for themselves what’s right and what’s wrong, and what needs to be done to get where they want.

If you like characters with enhanced capabilities, characters living on the wrong the side of the law, and think a little violence might help to solve a situation check it out. Though I strongly suggest you read The Maddest of Men before you look at The Lords of Lettuce or you won’t understand much of the plot…chances are you won’t anyway.

The Lords of LettuceOld tunnels, lurking threats, and a race against time.

Creed wants his happily ever after with Grayham. They’ve faked his death and it should be as simple as that, right? But before his body double has had time to cool, there’s a knock on the door, and it looks like he and Grayham’s troubles are just getting started.

For reasons no one understands, a young boy has come to ask their help. He isn’t a normal boy, he’s a meta, able to see mere moments into the future, and to see how every action alters that future. He knows men are out to get him, he also knows Creed’s friend is in danger.

Grayham does not want to hunt for some wayward agent. He couldn’t care less if the agents of The Bureau of Whatever killed each other off, but then there is this look on Creed’s face, and he knows he’ll do everything he can to make him smile again. Being around Creed has made him soft, and it’s a weakness he can’t afford. But weakness or not, he’ll do anything for Creed.

Together Grayham and Creed set out to find Sal Minotti before it’s too late. They search the city of Carona, but he’s nowhere to be found, sadly that can’t be said about the gang members from the eastern side.
