Press Release

Life for Grace Kimble has finally settled down. She has a constant supply of blood, a secure residence, and a loving, handsome man at her side. Then, she’s handed an envelope, and finds herself thrust into the deepest depths of the entertainment industry—where vampires go to blend in with the rest of their like-minded ilk.

Forgoing teen romance and gothic supernaturalism, Vigil is part hard-boiled thriller and part crime procedural, mixed with a dash of stark urban horror—this is a vampire tale with a real bite.

The books are based on the highly-acclaimed comic book series Vigil which ran from 1992-2000, by Loudermilk and artist Mike Iverson.

“I thought it would be fun to put a character as volitile as Grace in a situation where she has to deal with vapid, self-involved Hollywood types,”said Loudermilk. “Nothing is as entertaining as making this character deal with dummies. She has zero patience. Zero.”

“Glitterati” is available now from, iTunes, Barnes & Noble, and the Kobo bookstore for $1.99. For those who need to catch up, the first four books are collected in a bundle available for $.499. The next Vigil installment will be released October 2014.

The first Vigil story, “The Blood Detail,” is still available as a free download at, iTunes, and the Kobo bookstore.
