So now the question is, what has contributed to the success of this iconic vampire series? I think at this point the producers are playing it smart, and cashing out their chips while they are on a winning streak.
. . . my preference is for the traditional, bad-ass vampires. You know the ones . . . Nosferatu, with his rat-like visage and taloned fingers, rising perpendicular out of his coffin or rigidly stalking his victims.
On February 25 my vampire novel, “To Touch the Sun”, was released . . . When asked why I wrote a vampire novel, “Well, everyone should write at least one in their lifetime.” Let’s be honest, there isn’t . . . a drought
“Fangst” is a term I read on the Internet, . . . [so] let’s say “fangst” is an ironic term one may apply to the depiction of vampires as tragic heroes: beautiful, dark creatures doomed to a life they wouldn’t choose
I can’t tell you how excited I was when I heard from the publisher to whom I had submitted my “Highland Home” Series . . . the euphoria didn’t last long . . . I [took] my books back and return[ed] to self-publishing.
I have a shameful confession to make: my novel started off life as a screenplay and . . . many of the works that inspired its creation were movies! I know, I feel terrible, but I’m glad to finally get it off my chest.
My fascination with vampires began when I learned my mother had Bela Lugosi’s autograph. My great grandparents owned a hair salon in Manhattan and Bela Lugosi had been just one of their famous clients. One day . . .
Dear Vampire Diaries, [I’m] not sure where to begin. I really wish we could have met in person today, but we both know how chaotic . . . our schedules are currently. We barely have time to get together once a week
One issue I’ve noticed in a lot of paranormal fiction is scale: getting too big too fast. All the vampires have a werewolf bodyguard, legions of angels . . . and the sewers are bursting with more vampires than rats.
So, I wanted to write a vampire novel. Sounds simple enough, right? For some people, maybe, but not for me. I wanted something . . . new; something [with] meaning beyond just another throwaway tale of fangs and stakes.
