My short story, “Midsummer with Vampire Romeo and Zombie Juliet” has been published in Alternative Holidays Anthology from B Cubed Press. I did my first experiment with the Midjourney.ai (an artificial intelligence that creates pictures in response to prompts) to illustrate the title of my story.
I really liked the result (though I thought Juliet looks midway between a vampire and a zombie!) and I used it for posts on all my social media.

The story is in a great anthology, with a nice mix of humor, horror, and warmth. And look at this cover!
