Ichabod and the Vampire

Firstly, Ichabod Crane would like to thank Miss Wadsworth for allowing him the use of her blog to champion a subject he has been passionate about for some time:

There Are No Such Thing As Ghosts!

The following interviews are all his thoughts and Miss Wadsworth would like to post them all with the declaimer: These interviews have no bearing on her own personal beliefs. Please hold none of Ichabod's nonsense against her.

Ichabod: Yes, well that was most unnecessary, Miss Wadsworth.

Today we have with us Jude, from London whose story is being featured in a book entitled THE POWER OF MUSE AND INSPIRATION by Michael Mandrake. Jude claims to be a vampire. Now, why don’t you tell us a bit about yourself?

Jude: Well, hello Ichabod, glad to be here with a creature as endearing as yourself. I’m the vampire Jude that lives not only on the blood of my victims but I thrive on the inspiration I receive from my partners.

Ichabod: Blood and inspiration, eh? That is a strange combination, I must say.

Jude: Not really. I’m an artist, a sketch artist to be exact and I’m searching for someone to bring the color back into my life. Right now, I’m chasing after a young man by the name of William Chatterley whose a best-selling author also seeking companionship. You’ll have to read to find out if I get my man.

Ichabod: Yes, I'll put the book on the top of my list. Now do you have anyone that could vouch for you, perhaps to prove that you are a vampire?

Jude: William Chatterley is the only other MC. He’s a gay writer with a book in the top two of novels on Amazon. The only other character mentioned is Andrew. He’s the competition for me but erm, he leaves the story rather quickly. ((smiles wickedly))

Ichabod: I may have to speak with this person another time. Unfortunately you appear unable to be reasoned with. Why don’t we discuss something more neutral? Can you tell me about this charlatan that has written your story?

Jude: Ah that would be Michael Mandrake. He’s also mentioned in the story by the narrator William. He’s the competition for him and we pay him a visit somewhere in the tale. Besides this masterpiece, he’s written A SECOND CHANCE, a gay cop novella and TRUE MEANING OF LOVE a small novelette which precludes the bigger story to come, THE COMPLETE PORTRAIT. Several shorts, too many to mention by him, this 39 gay Brit loves writing, surfing the net, music, and watching movies with foreign subtitles and the occasional porn flick. ((snorts))

Ichabod: I don't even know what that is so I'm just going to go on with my usual questions. Is there a way I can contact this author so that I may speak with them personally about the nonsense they are perpetuating?

Jude: Ah the author can be found at website, blog, and on Twitter!/rawiyamikembl Again a sharing kind of deal. He shares that with Rawiya and BLMorticia. Why he doesn’t have his own, IDK. ((Jude shrugs)) And don’t forget the fan page on Facebook

Ichabod: And where can my followers purchase this book

Jude: Well it should be released before Halloween. Primarily at http://www.xoxopublishing .com

Ichabod: Thank you for coming today, Jude. You have been a most pleasant guest for a vampire. I have interviewed them before and they are generally quite confrontational.

I wish Ms. Wadsworth would line up some sane people for me to interview, but it seems she is insistent on providing me with delusional people. As a thank you for stopping in and reading my posts this October one lucky commenter will win a copy of my story THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW and BL Morticia's book ONCE UPON A TWISTED TALE-, a short story, adopting the theme of the Princess and the Pea from Hans Christen Anderson with an m/m twist.

So please leave your comment below and don’ forget to tell us how we can get a hold of you!


William Chatterley is an up and coming author looking for a partner after many dead end dates. Finally, he believes he’s found a suitable mate in Andrew and they see one another.

The vampire Jude is weak from being without love in his life. When he sees the author, he desires him right away but his companion is a stumbling block.

How will he get passed it and when he does, will the mortal want to be his partner? What will he choose? Will Jude convince him to become his eternal lover?
