Vermilion Teardrop is a collection of four short stories, poetry and full color art. Here you'll find seedy nightclubs, rundown hotel rooms and degenerate tattoo parlors. The women who frequent them are searching for Nirvana...and ultimately twisted desire. A young girl longs to find immortality in Vermilion Teardrop, but a man named Xavier gives her so much more. A demon haunts a young woman named Maria in Destiny's. An alcoholic shares her shabby apartment with a vile and murderous creature in Lenora's Web. And an unemployed actress moves through Manhattan streets with phantoms by her side in Tricks of Light. A piece of the author's visual art accompanies each story. There are also poems sprinkled within. This book is a must for fans of dark fiction, poetry and art. It displays the range of Sandy Deluca's creative expression.
