Good afternoon everyone,
It gives us great pleasure, and it is a great honour for us, to announce that Gabrielle Faust has agreed to become Real Vampire Life’s freelance Vampyre Society Correspondent. Gabrielle will be writing for us about the events that she attends and will be, undoubtedly, having a little to say about the latest vamp-fashions, literature, music and all things society.
You may recall, back in July this year, we were very fortunate to be able to spend a little time with Gabrielle and produce an interview article with her entitled “The Lady Writes“.
In producing that article, and from being in contact with this lovely lady, we found out that her work, as an author and illustrator, has appeared in The Lightning Journal, GUD Magazine, Doorways Magazine, The Open Vein, Darkened Horizons, Ladies of Horror and The Bloodied Quill.
Since 2007 she has worked as a freelance entertainment journalist and critic in the horror industry covering the latest film and novel releases, as well as major festivals such as FantasticFest and South by Southwest Film Festival for the publications Fear Zone, Blaster, SCI FI Wire, Girls & Corpses and Fatally Yours.
In October of 2008, after the release of the first Eternal Vigilance vampire novel to rave reviews, she was made the Guest of Honor at the “Queen of the Damned” Vampire Ball in New Orleans. In 2009 she was afforded the honor of returning as a Special Guest, alongside author Charlaine Harris, for the Endless Night Festival and was dubbed “New Orleans Vampire Royalty” at the Tru Blood & Gold vampire ball. She returned in 2010 to the Memnoch: The Resurrection vampire ball and Endless Night festival, as well as the New Orleans UnDeadCon, as one of the selected Special Author Guests.
She was the primary graphic designer on the organizational committee for the 2011 World Horror Convention in Austin, Texas and in March of 2011she was awarded the prestigious Texas Social Media Award.
She celebrated; in July, the release of her latest novel Revenge from Barking Rain Press, penned with co-author Solomon Schneider. At that time also, she was working on three new novel concepts and her first solo music project as a singer-songwriter.

Gabrielle’s style, her grace and her experience will bring yet another dimension to Real Vampire Life for our readers to enjoy and we are looking forward to working with her very much indeed.
