blog tour: VAMPIRES NEVER GET OLD

hey friends! sorry this post is coming up late in the day (it’s… been a Day TM), but honestly, that’s on brand for vampires, so no regrets lol. today on the blog, i have the distinct honor of offering an #ownvoices reflection for Julie Murphy’s short story in the VAMPIRES NEVER GET OLD: TALES WITH FRESH BITE anthology.

Julie Murhpy’s short story – which is titled SENIOR YEAR SUCKS – is about a fat sapphic cheerleader from the American south… who also doubles as a vampire slayer. the point of contention in the story arrives in the form of a smoking hot immortal female vampire that Jolene feels conflicted about.

this story gave me all the feels! i honestly felt that a short story format did not do these characters justice… because i wanted to live in their world forever! i wanted to know what happens after the end when they agree on terms for Alma’s survival.

but also… this story just reignited my passion for sapphic stories that span the breadth of genres and tropes. immediately after reading SENIOR YEAR SUCKS, i started to think… maybe i could right my own sapphic vampire romance with a fat main character? even a year ago, i never would’ve thought i would be able to do something like that, but i am so so thankful that Julie Murphy has paved the way for me, because i desperately want the world to be full of queer vampires and the humans who love them.
