Which pretty much settles the question.
Now he’s trying to hold down his day job while learning the rules of the Undead — the most important being that bloodthirsty urges and predatory instincts are a real bitch.
Upside; Eric has the beautiful Sasha to teach him the ropes, including the magic he’ll need to survive.
Downside; they’re being hunted by members of the Church of Light, who are determined to rid the world of vampires.
Then Sasha is killed, and Eric is thrust into an alternate world in his quest to avenge her death. There he becomes a Nightlord, fights a dragon with the help of his magical steed, Bronze, and upchucks a sword named Firebrand.
But things get really interesting when Eric finally finds Tobias, head of the Church of Light. Soon Eric finds himself at the center of an epic battle at the literal edge of the world in a fight to keep a terrible darkness at bay.
In other words, just another day in the life of the Nightlord.
“When you fall off the Edge of the World into hordes of demonic Things from the Outer Darkness, you really start to wonder if you haven’t made some mistakes.”
–Eric, part-time undead, expectant father, and short-term astronaut.

A Realm of the Dragon Shifters Short Story
As a dragon shifter and king of his people, King Najarni wants to make his lovely wife happy. Her human ways are a mystery to him. Her Earthly customs and holidays are something he knows little about. When his trusted guards return from the human realm, having mastered the art of Christmas, he knows his queen will be overjoyed.
At least, that was the plan.
And the dead could see her.
Now, they won’t leave her alone.
Accompanying two friends through a haunted house, Billie uncovers a terrible secret that brings, not only the police, but the homicide detective responsible for putting her into the hospital in the first place. He’s also the one man she sworn to stay away from.
But the appearance of this strange boy isn’t the only thing that’s changed. Bryn’s symptoms are worsening, her body weakening as she’s plagued by hallucinations even while awake. Her only hope of finding a cure is to undergo experimental treatment created by a German specialist. But when Dr. Banz reveals that he knows more about her strange symptoms than he originally let on, Bryn learns that the boy in her head might actually be the key to understanding what’s happening to her, and worse, that if she doesn’t find out his identity before it’s too late, they both may not survive.
Tired of thinking about her worthless ex-boyfriend and the humiliating way in which they parted, Martha Bigalow goes on a hike hoping the dramatic hills of the English Lake District will help her to forget. But as she crosses an ancient set of stepping stones, she slips and falls into an angry river.
Time Travel. Sideways.
She wakes in cave, wearing nothing but her dodgy, mismatched underwear. Her only company is the man who saved her life: a tall, dark, and disturbingly attractive stranger named Vadim. Too bad he’s a medieval re-enactor gone feral. Or so she assumes.
Crazy dream or not, it soon becomes clear that when she fell into the river she left the twenty-first century far behind… and medieval Erde is nothing like home.
Now, all that stands between her and almost certain death is the crazy man with the sword. And then he offers her his protection… with the role of his “wife.”
Vadim is a wanted man. An outlaw.
The last thing he needs are any complications of the female kind, but then he happens upon a strangely attired woman lying beside the river…
Martha is bold, outspoken, and altogether irreverent, and every instinct he has warns him to abandon her… only he cannot. Her allure is already much too strong. Against his better judgement, despite all the risks, Vadim offers to help Martha find her way home.
Until then, Martha must adapt to medieval society, steer clear of the Evil Earl and his minions, and maybe—just maybe—learn how to trust her heart again.
