Blue Christmas by Jessica Levai. Narrated by J.S. Arquin. Featuring an afterword recorded by Jessica Levai. #fantasy #dark 


She woke to find Nick standing over her. The thin dawn light showed him ragged and tired, turned his face red and his beard blue. He held her forgotten mug in his hand.

“You went to the secret room,” he said, so softly she could scarcely hear.


Jessica Lévai has loved stories and storytellers her whole life. After a double major in history and mathematics, a PhD in Egyptology, and eight years of the adjunct shuffle, she devoted herself to writing full-time. You can read her work in Luna Station Quarterly, Body Parts Magazine, and Vampires, Zombies and Ghosts Volume 2. Her first novella is a vampire romance in Pushkin sonnets. She has begun work on her second long-form piece and dreams of one day collaborating on a graphic novel, and meeting Stephen Colbert.
