Cover Reveal and A Free Read: It Sleeps at Dawn

Yes, you might have seen this one on its promotion day recently, but it wasn’t free then. It is free today (6/29) so be sure to grab your copy at the links below.

This is one of my favorite covers that James (goonwrite) has ever created. When I saw it I knew that I had to have it for this story. There was nothing I was ever going to create that would capture this short story this well. I was so tired of Vampires with guns moving in slow motion. I wanted my Vampire to be the traditional kind, one who toys with his victims, drinks their blood, sleeps in the day, and uses their fangs to kill. I think this cover just conveys that so well.

You might also be interested to know that this title was inspired by a Slayer song “At Dawn They Sleep.”


This short story is about a Vampire who stalks the Appalachian Mountains. A traditional Vampire who uses fangs instead of guns. He hunts. He kills. He sleeps at Dawn.
