one of my favorite couple of characters happen to be dogs. That's right.
One is a vampire hunting dog named Doc. His story takes place in contemporary time, and his human is named Kevin. There are quite a few short stories available featuring Doc and friends.
The other dog is named Brown and her human is Elliott. Brown has a way with ghosts. Being border collies, both dogs have this thing called....
if you've ever been stared down by a herder dog, you will know what I'm referring to.
anyway there is currently a blog tour happening that's featuring Brown. I've read all (i'm pretty sure I've read all of them) of Brown's stories, and they are very entertaining - especially if you enjoy dogs. You will recognize doggy behavior in these stories.
The entire blog tour, complete with links is listed on Campbell's website, but just in case...

J.A. Campbell (aka Julie) has quite a variety of writing projects that she's finished, and is always working on new projects. On top of being a very talented writer with all kinds of characters living in her brain, she is the caretaker of cats, an intense dog named Kira (the dog is a border collie, i.e. - intense) and is a horsewoman. No, she doesn't turn into a horse at full moons, nor does she have a horse head, or a tail...she owns a horse and rides Triska as much as she can. Girl is living the life; horse, dog, cats, books in print and a sailor boyfriend who is absent enough to be in love with. (haha - that's my weird take on relationships - if you're apart regularly, you appreciate each other more.)
Keep your eyes open for J.A. Campbell - there will be more coming from her. everytime I hear about a new project, I'm happy because I KNOW it's going to be interesting and fun to read.
other works by J.A. Campbell
This is the Clanless series - a third is in the works. Teen vampire, learning to maintain and keeping her friends safe.
Serpent Queen is a steampunk style of short story - novella - that I would love to see more of. A vampire pirate who's airship is attacked.
J.A. Campbell has many other works available online as free reads or e-books. You won't find ridiculous prices for these books either - like $14.99. Nope - all of the e-books are affordable and all are great reads. Visit her website for more info on all available and upcoming projects.
