      Thank you so much, Dave! I really appreciate it. The stories I write tend to be on the dark side, but that’s the first time I included vampires 🙂 I’m really you liked it. I would encourage you to post some of your own work, and please do submit something to The Community Storyboard! I would love to read some of yours 🙂

        Thanks for the encouragement! I definitely will some stuff. Nice to know someone else tends toward the darker side of things in their writing. I’ve yet to do anything with vampires, but I’m sure it will happen eventually 🙂
