Well, at the suggestion of one fellow writer (he writes sports for local media), I today registered with Yahoo Contributors Network to post my unpublished original stories in a non-exclusive format online for people to view. Admittedly it seems a bit desperate, considering the story will need to get 1,000 view before I'm paid even $1.50 for that web traffic. I'm spreading the word thought my usual news channels including this blog today, but the story's not ready for viewing quite yet. Yahoo needs to review the content of my 4,800-word space opera vampire adventure story first and then it will be available for reading by anyone. I'll put the address and other details in a follow up to this post soon. The story's title is "Blood Guardian," the tale of a vampire vigilante/former prostitute living on the planet Nightshade in the far future who uses her abilities to slay criminals and protect innocent people in her home city Rainbow Circle. Learning the local government has hired hunters to eliminate the growing vampire murder problem and barely escaping such hunters, our heroine is offered a chance by her mentor to leave the planet Nightshade for greener pastures elsewhere - but which path will she choose is presented in the remaining story.
