1810 England, the height of the Napoleonic wars. It was thought that humans walked the path of enlightenment leaving monsters and dark things behind. However, those monsters and night stalkers merely hide in the darkness, as a young maid, Bernadette, soon finds out.
Well, it looks like my plan B for Otakuthon fell through. Man, such bad luck. But! But A store will still be selling my book. If you're ever in Montreal, you should look up Scifi Anime and see if they have any copies in stock after Otakuthon. Aaaaand I've caved in and gotten a facebook account. Why does this matter to you? Because I've created a fan page for Anathema. I'll be putting up art and notices on it. Check it out: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Anathema/207822325936037
ANNNND! Anathema has been nominated for Best Fantasy on smackjeeves awards! Check it out: http://sjawards11.smackjeeves.com/comics/1254912/best-fantasy/
AND VOTE ANATHEMA!
The blood... it's... healing her hand???
I guess that would make sense considering that vampires use blood to sustain them, but I'd always figured that they used their own blood to consciously heal wounds (unlike lycanthropes who need to transform to heal all their wounds), but Bernadette's healing seems to be happening almost as a reflex, or am I mistaken?
Edit: Oh, and I just got done voting for Anathema! Here's hoping you win, because everything about Anathema is absolutely wonderful, from story to artwork, and I especially how you've made the readers care about your characters just by making them people we can relate to, and identify with.
i think we should all say thank you Mia and 2nd this could be a situation of animals taste off to vampires but are not poison or anything like that also remember vampires are usualy seen as vain creatures so higher up ones could have the thought prosess of any who drink from animals are lower than slaves or such
