Omnibus II is a collection of my previously published stories gathered together in one book.
I'm a professional writer and editor, and you may have seen my titles in your favorite bookstore over the last 22 years. I'm best known for The Vampire Files, featuring undead gumshoe, Jack Fleming.
Like many professional writers, I have out of print works that commercial publishers are no longer interested in. Few houses are open to doing reprints of previously published works. Once a book goes out of print, it's lost to readers.
However, digital and print on demand venues are breathing fresh life into those works. Writers are able to get their words up and selling again! As stated in a Monty Python movie, they're "not dead yet!"
As with the first Omnibus, I'll be going over the stories, tinkering and tweaking--giving them what I call the "director's cut" treatment.
There will be at least one all new Jack Fleming Vampire Files adventure in the collection!
I already have the idea for the story and it will be (at least) novella length. You'll get your money's worth!

This ain't my first rodeo. I've written more than 24 novels (rather more than that in short stories) and edited several collections for St. Martin's Griffin, Ace Science Fiction, and Benbella Books.
The previous Omnibus is selling on Kindle, Nook and Smashwords, and a print-on-demand service looks after the trade size softcover books selling on Amazon & other bookseller sites.
The book will be available as a trade size softcover and as a downloadable ebook under my publishing imprint, Vampwriter Books.
Completed stories for the collection:
All Shook Up, My Big Fat Supernatural Wedding, 2006 Winner of the Pearl Award for best supernatural anthology
Her Mother's Daughter, My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon, Honorable Mention, 2007 Pearl Award, best paranormal anthology.

The target word count for the book is 110,000+ words. The completed stories account for about 70K of the goal. The new Vampire Files novella will take care of the rest -- and then some!
The project is about 70% finished. I need a Kickstarter to bring it all the way home.
