About The Night Library of Sternendach: A Vampire Opera in Verse:
Kunigunde is destined to become the next in a long line of Heller clan vampire hunters--but her soul is drawn to books, poetry, and the vampire Graf. Set in 1960s Europe, The Night Library of Sternendach is an unabashedly melodramatic oper-in-sonnets that weaves a sweeping, suspenseful tale readers won't be able to put down.
About Jessica Lévai:
Jessica Lévai has loved stories and storytellers for as long as she can remember. After a PhD in Egyptology and eight years as a professor of Anthropology, she dedicated herself to writing full time. She lives near Boston with her husband and two kids.
About The Vampire Gideon's Suicide Hotline and Halfway House for Orphaned Girls:
In the house on the hill, there lives a vampire. But not of the sexy, mysterious, or sparkling kind. The vampire Gideon prefers to drink nearly expired blood from the local morgue while watching over the humans around him--humans he calls "children," because when you're as old as he is, everyone else does seem like a child. And so many of these children are prepared to throw their lives away over problems that, in Gideon's view, appear rather trivial.
He sets about trying to fix them by means of an unofficial, do-it-yourself suicide hotline. He's sure that he's making a difference, maybe even righting the mistakes of his past. Then one day a troubled young girl calls, and his (undead) life gets turned upside down. Before he knows it, he's got a surly, tech-addicted teenage roommate--and, at long last, he begins to grow up.
About Andrew Katz:
Andrew Katz, when not reading and writing fiction, enjoys puppers and doggos, black coffee, disc golf, and writing bios that read like poorly made dating profiles. He is also the proud owner of several paintings he did himself and hides from the world because they’re bad. He lives and works in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
