 A digital short by Mark Cantrell

STOKE-ON-TRENT, 22 December 2013: Think of it as a road movie, but played out on the digital page, and you get an idea of the vampire story, One For The Road, the latest in Mark Cantrell's series of digital shorts.


A vampire tale with a chilling twist, the atmospheric and action-packed short story is now available from Amazon and Smashwords for the Kindle, Sony, Kobo, Apple, and a host of popular e-reading devices, for the minimalist sum of $0.99 (roundabout 77 pence).



Out on the road, you find out who you really are.


What you really are…


Escaped killer Daniel is sure of himself. Armed and dangerous, devil-may-care; he's a hunter – a vampire – on the run from the police and enjoying the ride.


Sarah, she's just lost; escaping a troubled home, she's running from herself. Until she meets Daniel, she has no idea she's running for her life…


Poor Sarah, she doesn't know who or what she is, but Daniel knows – and he's going to show her. The two of them were made for each other…


Daniel's desire will take them both on a road trip to sex and murder, and the destination will reveal far more than either cares to know about themselves.


It's a relationship blessed in blood – and death is coming along for the ride…
