The Vampire Club

The Vampire Club
by Josh Stoodley

Gloria Jones, a nineteen year old dame with dark brown skin, a broad, flat nose, light brown eyes and thick curly hair that spread across her pillow like so many ocean waves, woke with the kind of scream usually reserved for pretty blonds in B horror movies. Which wasn’t surprising, seeing as she had spent the last few minutes trapped in another nightmare, forced by her subconscious to relive her sister’s murder time and time again. No human can withstand that kind of self-inflicted torture for long, and Gloria’s horrified shriek had been long expected by the only other occupant in the room, a small pure white puppy with red tips on her ears and dark eyes. The pup, on hearing Gloria mutter and moan, climbed up onto Gloria’s bed from her own bed at the side and snuggled in beside her person, doing whatever she could to help the young dame through the misery currently plaguing her.

The Vampire Club Update

In between last week’s update and this, I did fall a little behind on The Vampire Club, but I’ve gotten back on track and it will be out next week sometime.

In the meantime, you can check out my first two novels: Robots and Vampires ( about dystopic, fractured United States of America, and The Standard Tech Case Files: The Black Coats (, about the vampire Joey Bianco and his squire, Jen Ryan, and their attempts to bring Akisha Jones’ killer to justice.

The Vampire Club is…

About halfway done. Depending on how long the editing process takes, I should have it out between the twentieth and the twenty-fifth. Of this month. I swear.

In the meantime, check out my novels Robots and Vampires (*Version*=1&*entries*=0

More Status Updates, Yay!

Hi, I’m officially back from my two weeks hiatus and I’m here to regale you all with thrilling tales of exploits.

Okay not really. But I am here to tell you what the plan is and how far I’ve gotten on it.

Firstly, I’m currently rewriting the outline for The Dead and The Damned. Should be out next year, hopefully.

Secondly, I’m still working on the short story ‘The Vampire Club’. It should be out this month (yes, I know I said that for the last two months. If you want to complain about my scheduling habits, you can come and write the damn thing).

Thirdly, I am working on a language for my vampires. Because I’m a crazy person, apparently.

Finally, a reminder that my first two novels are available on Kindle from Amazon. Robots and Vampires (*Version*=1&*entries*=0) is a coming of age tale centered around the cyborg John Smith as he searches for justice in post-World War III America. The Standard Tech Case Files: The Black Coats (*Version*=1&*entries*=0) is a murder mystery in the style of Raymond Chandler. Follow Joey Bianco and his squire Jen Ryan as they unravel the mystery of Akisha Jones’ death.

See you all next week!
