From the desk of W. J. Onufer…
All of us here at Tales of the Vampire Hadley Price are totally psyched to be part of very exciting, one-off, side project. Truth be told, I’ve been keeping this under my hat for a couple months now. It’s been everything I could do to not say anything about it.
But now I can.
Eric Busby, the genius behind the fantastic Byron Chronicles audio drama series approached me and asked if I’d be interested in writing an episode of the Byron Chronicles. Now understand, to my way of thinking, Eric is the Steven Spielberg of the audio drama world. And I? I’m just a writer who put out his first book less than a year ago. Eric’s been producing great Byron audio dramas for years. Hadley and I are still new to all of this.
To say it was a big deal for me is a major understatement. After I recovered from my heart attack and scraped myself off the floor, I told him, yes, I’d love to do that. Two days later I sent him the script. There was one big thing that I was concerned about as I waited for him to respond. The story I wrote for him had my main character, the Vampire Hadley Price, in an encounter with his main character, Byron, the Pale Man of Portland. How would that fly?
As it turned out, he liked my script. The inclusion of my main character wasn’t an issue one way or another. He generously allowed Hadley into Byron’s World.
Hadley insists that she allowed Byron into her world. And since I wouldn’t want to piss-off Hadley or Byron, I won’t confirm that.
In either case, an Eric Busby audio drama production of my story will be posted soon. It features David Ault as Byron and Natilie Van Sistine as Hadley. It’ll be the next story the Byron Chronicles: A Year in the Life series.
Many thanks to Eric Busby.
Here’s a link to the first story in that series that was released just a couple days ago.
