Must Read: The Vampire Sonnets

Now this is what I call a treat. David Nelson Bradsher is hands down one of the best traditional rhyming poets I've read. His metric verse is exquisitely crafted and never less than 100% passionate. When I first started out as a writer, he was the poet's poet of our online writing group, and I grew in leaps and bounds by following his ingenious creations.

His new release, The Vampire Sonnets, is a project he worked on for several years. It's a collection of dark, poignant and extraordinarily atmospheric verse fashioned as a period vampire story you won't be able to get enough of. Brilliant stuff.

Check out this review.

And here's an interview with the man himself, David Nelson Bradsher (his Vampire Sonnets facebook page can be found here)

Finally, here's the buy link.

I strongly urge everyone to read this unique collection.

In that case, you'll be impressed, Melissa. He's a wonderfully elegant poet.
