This one is huge: my vampire story, "FREAKS," just came out in the new Downstate Story (http://www.wiu.edu/users/mfgeh/dss)! Not only did I get paid fifty dollars for the piece, I also got another twenty-five for illustrating the story with a pencil sketch, which is a first. I've already been interviewed and I understand I'll be doing live readings and be on television. ROCK FUCKING ON.
And don't worry, real horror fans/authors, I came at the vamps in an original way and it's gory.
