A Good Man Excerpt + Giveaway

Keep reading for a chance to win a pdf ebook copy of A Good Man by Vanessa Morgan.

Vanessa has provided us with an excerpt, the opening words, from her new screenplay, A Good Man.

Snow-covered streets seen through a floor-to-ceiling window.

Would you like to begin, Eric? Your case is rather peculiar.

My name is Eric. I've been a vampire since 1973 and I have constant headaches because of a brain tumor. An eternal headache, if you get what I mean. I'm also suffering from depression, but that's curable, they say – even for a vampire.

A Good Man by Vanessa Morgan.

Louis Caron is a good man - he is a vegetarian, feeds homeless people, takes care of animals and is concerned with environmental issues. But his altruism has a sinister edge: he's a vampire and local inspector Taglioni becomes increasingly suspicious of him. Louis' attempt to escape the police will take him on a journey into his own private hell where he is not only forced to confront his worst fears, but where he will also destroy the lives of those he cares about.

Thank you Vanessa for joining us here today at From the Shadows!

  11. Pellet smoking is definitely the bomb! Real wood-fired flavor, smoked to perfection in a set and forget barbecue that auto-regulates the temperature so all you’ve got to do is check when it’s done.
