5th sentence, 74th page: He didn’t have that much in his wallet.
We all know that politicians are blood suckers. But what happens when a vampire wants to become one too?
I’m not really into politics. Or politicians or really anything of the sort. I think that I should be a little more involved, but realistically, it’s just not going to happen. Which made it kind of fun to read a story about a bloodsucker going into politics. Literally.
The entire way throughout this story I was waiting for the punchline. There had to be some kind of evil, ulterior motive to a vampire running for office. Which there is. In the very final paragraph. And it led me to heave a sigh of relief and gratitude when I turned the final page. There just wouldn’t have been something right about this story if there wasn’t any kind of punchline…

It’s funny but I had almost forgotten about writing this story. I’m glad that the reviewer enjoyed the ending. I wish to heck I could remember how I ended it, but I know where to find a copy on my bookshelf.
