I’ve previously described the poem as my ‘flufftastic iambic tetrameter vampire poem’ and really, I think I picked that description because I love saying iambic tetrameter because it makes me sound all clever and pretentious. This poem? Pretty much the least pretentious poem evar. Possibly as indicated by the title 😉
My poem, Vampiric Fluff, has been accepted for inclusion in the forthcoming These Vampires Don’t Sparkle anthology from Sky Warrior Books edited by Carol Hightshoe. Carol and Sky Warrior Books are the same team behind Zombiefied! An Anthology of All Things Zombie a few years ago, which included one of my poems. Zombiefied is remarkable to me because it’s one of a very small number of anthologies I’ve been published in which has earned enough royalties that I received a royalty cheque in addition to my original payment.
Anywho… Vampiric Fluff was originally published back in 2007, so it’s been a while since it has been in print. I’m excited that it found a home with These Vampires Don’t Sparkle 🙂
