Jess Says: I've always loved The Rocky Horror Picture Show and when I had the idea to use cannibal Girl Scouts for a story, I couldn't resist putting them together!
"At The Late Night, Double Feature, Picture Show"
A short story that introduces Jane, a normal teenage girl in a family of monster hunters who's on the run from cannibal Girl Scouts with a band of misfit vampires on the way to a Rocky Horror Picture Show convention. The unlikely team runs into trouble with a cannibal and if they are going to make it out alive, they have to put aside their differences and fight together.

Praise for "At The Late Night, Double Feature, Picture Show"...
""At the Late Night, Double Feature, Picture Show" combined hysterically funny with horror as Jane's plans to prove her value to her family almost collapsed under the weight of cannibal Girl Scouts and Jason-like resurrectionists, all in the company of Rocky Horror Show-lovin' vamps." —KD DID IT REVIEWS
"When on the run from cannibal girl scouts, the last thing one expects to run into is vampires. In drag. On their way to a Rocky Horror show. But that is the least of Jane's problems. As soon as I heard about this one, I was dying to read it! I myself can take or leave RHPS, but the idea of singing vampires in drag? How does one pass that up? Even if that doesn't appeal to you, there's a very...Frankenstein-y twist at the end. 5/5"
—MENA P. AMAZON REVIEWER
"Girl Scouts, dental assistants and vampires make for a really fun read. Jessica's writing is fabulous. This story line is simple, fun and I like how she blends in humor with her paranormal characters. I'm a big fan of her storytelling and I'm hoping I'll get to read more of story in the near future." —MUNDIE MOMS REVIEWS
