Welcome to my website. I’m Alex Bledsoe, author of stories about musical fairies from the Smoky Mountains living among us (the Tufa novels); a sword-for-hire who, for twenty-five gold pieces a day, will find the skeletons or make sure they stay in the closet (the Eddie LaCrosse novels); and polyester-clad vampires in the 1970s who spend as much time dealing with the racial tensions as they do with blood-letting (the Memphis Vampires novels).

You can learn a little bit more about me here, keep up with the adventures of the Squirrel Boy, the C-in-C and the Siren on  Twitter,  Facebook, and/or Google+, and send me a note here. And if you want to sample my writing for free, my friends at Tor will welcome you here.
