If you already have a Kindle version of these books, you can often buy the audiobook for only $1.99 and Amazon's Whispersync technology allows you to seamlessly shift from listening to reading, and back again. (Also, this is an obvious way to save money if you just want the audiobook--buy them both!)

Blood Street by Carl Alves

For fans of vampires, here's a book by my friend Carl Alves:

Blood Street by Carl Alves

About the Book: Alexei chose the wrong neighborhood to claim his latest victim. Now Philadelphia mob boss Enzo Salerno is determined to hunt down the man who killed his associate in such gruesome fashion in his South Philly row home. 

Perplexed by this unnatural murder, Salerno uncovers clues that lead him to believe that this was not a mob hit, and that a vampire was responsible for this death. Magnus, the leader of Alexei’s brood, must now use all of his resources to save them from both the mafia and the FBI

About the Author: After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from Boston University and later an MBA degree from Lehigh University, Carl has worked in the pharmaceutical and medical devices industries.  His debut novel Two For Eternity was released in 2011 by Weaving Dreams Publishing.  His short fiction has appeared in various publications such as Sinister City, Alien Skin and Behind Locked Doors anthology.  He is a member of the Horror Writers Association and has attended the Penn Writers Conference.  You can visit his website at

Praise for Blood Street:

“Alves’ action-packed Blood Street points the vampire genre back in the right direction. Vampires are ruthless monsters bent on superiority, power and the inevitable, near-tragic craving of blood, but here mixed in the frenzy we also have organized crime, which turns out to be quite similar in its aspirations.”
—Benjamin Kane Ethridge, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Black & Orange

V-Wars audiobook video

It's a video about the making of an audiobook about a book!

Skyboat Media produced the video about the making of V-Wars, a vampire anthology edited by Jonathan Maberry. My entry "Heartsick" is narrated by veteran actor Arte Johnson, who gets some face time in the video.!

Out from the comics giant IDW, V-Wars is also available from your favorite bookstores in multiple formats. Learn more at IDW's page.
