About the Author


Kazy Reed grew up on a small island off the Maine coast. At the age of sixteen, she announced to her parents that she was going to move to Denmark for six months as an exchange student. That trip changed her life, and sparked her love of travel, languages, and art history.

After graduating from college with a degree in Art History, she moved back to the island where she began to write short stories. When she was introduced to gay erotic fiction, the seed was planted and she never looked back.

Kazy now lives near the coast of Maine, with her very understanding husband and two ridiculously precocious children. In addition to her published work, she is the author of a weekly flash-fiction series on her blog.

I am not a morbid person. In fact, I am quite the opposite. However, while writing my book, I came across many amazing quotes about sacrificing one's self in many different ways. Here are some of my favorites:

"The whole earth, perpetually steeped in blood, is nothing but an immense altar on which every living thing must be sacrificed without end, without restraint, without respite until the consummation of the world, the extinction of evil, the death of death." Joseph de Maistre

"The important thing is this: to be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become." Charles Du Bos

"No matter how much you think you love somebody, you'll step back when the pool of their blood edges up too close." Chuck Palahniuk

"Blood will tell, but often it tells too much." Don Marquis

"What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal." Albert Pike

"To gain that which is worth having, it may be necessary to lose everything else." Bernadette Devlin

"It is an unwise man who thinks what has changed is dead." Anonymous

"...Forms change and pass; bodies disappear; but spirits linger, to consecrate ground for the vision-place of souls. And reverent men and women from afar, and generations that know us not and that we know not of, heart-drawn to see where and by whom great things were suffered and done for them, shall come to this deathless field, to ponder and dream, and lo! The shadow of a mighty presence shall wrap them in its bosom, and the power of the vision pass into their souls." Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, October 3, 1886

"'Tis true; 'tis certain; man though dead retains part of himself; the immortal mind remains." Homer

"When one creates phantoms for oneself, one puts vampires into the world, and one must nourish these children of a voluntary nightmare with one's blood, one's life, one's intelligence, and one's reason, without ever satisfying them." Eliphas Levi

"The strength of the vampire is that people will not believe in him." Garrett Fort

"I have never met a vampire personally, but I don't know what might happen tomorrow." Bela Lugosi

There's nothing I love more than a good laugh, and for me, some of the best quotes come from the Looney Tunes. I know. I'm odd. I told you that from the start.

Foghorn Leghorn
  • That boy's as sharp as a bag full o'wet mice.
  • You're makin' more noise than a skeleton dancin' on a tin roof.

Daffy Duck
  • What a way to run a railroad!
  • Thanks for the sour persimmons, cousin.

Buggs Bunny
  • Here we are! Pismo Beach and all the clams you can eat!
  • I knew I should'a taken that left turn at Albuquerque.
  • Let's blow this popsicle stand!
  • What an ultra-maroon!

Frenchman to Pépé le Pew
  • Sacré cerise!
