In 1908 Manhattan, Evelyn Reuter struggles to find her place in the life left to her by her late father - until she meets Margot, a mysterious and eccentric shopkeeper, at the center of her unanswered questions. As the two grow closer, Eve is faced with a tempting distraction from all her grief and uncertainty, and a new question is raised by Margot's own vampiric secret:

Obelisk is a Gothic horror/romance intended for readers 16 and up, and will at several points contain blood, nudity, and the sexuality and dark themes common in the vampire genre.
Ashley McCammon (she/her) is a 30-something cartoonist, butch lesbian, horror fan, and possibly a real life vampire. She owns far too many copies of Dracula, and has built Margot's antiques store in her Animal Crossing house.
