I am certain I have been missed....I am even more certain I am sorry for my absence. Life, for humans and vampires has been particularly consuming lately. It happens sometimes, nothing wrong with a bit of reality here and there I suppose, just so long as it doesn't become a habit. I don't want my author running about as if I don't exist! That would be terribly wasteful of some damn good stories I have filled her head with and she has yet to write down.

The next Immortal Council book is in the works..still! And she has almost finished the first in a delicious lesbian series that is not of the paranormal sort, but still good.

I am thinking there will be something very great to celebrate when the next Immortal Council book comes out seeing as there has been such a large break, so watch for that.  And hopefully I will be back on track here sooner than that even!

Hop Against Homophobia

Over 250 M/M authors have banded together to take on Homophobia and the negative outlook on those of us who write GLBT Romance. The Hop against Homophobia started on May 17 and today is the final day, but you still have time to follow along and read some eye-opening posts on Homophobia and all things associated with it.

Each participating blog has amazing giveaways relating to M/M romance so if you're a fan, stop by.

Start at my blog and go from there. I'm giving away copies of my M/M backlist.

Do Vampires read books?

Zoe_Lionheart_100 Of course they do. Art in general, and before all, new music and new books are what makes their unlife bearable. In the last decades their access to this kind of goods has become much easier, as they don’t have to leave their homes in daylight to shop for books and music. Today they can mail order it or even download it. You may bet most high-ranking Vampires own a tablet computer nowadays.

Why don’t they use an e-book-reader? The answer is simple – they need lighting anyway, as they can’t read in plain daylight. So the greatest advantage of “e-paper” is pointless for them. Oh, and maybe they think it’s cool, too.

This brings up the question – what do they read? You might think of old classics, but there you’re wrong. Every Vampire knows the old Bram Stoker book, of course, but they prefer to read something new, something unique. That means – it needn’t be about sex and violence.

Sadly market research cannot provide figures about top sellers for this audience. So I can’t show you a reliable list of titles that appeal most to the average Vampire. I can only guess, and this is the list I came up with:

“Tasty Blood” is a story about a young connoisseur trying to find the best recipe for blood. Which combination of vintage and terroir creates the most enjoyable taste? To find out, the Vampire has to kidnap and raise mortals all around the world. Then he falls in love with one of his “samples”. Tragic!

“Long Necks” is not about Giraffes, but about the preferred spot for a Vampire bite, and the narrator delves deep into the descriptions of the soft skin between shoulders and head. It’s a kind of fetish story.

“Crimson Liquid” is another story about a person addicted to blood. It describes inventive new ways to relieve a victim from blood without killing it right away. Not for weak stomachs.

“Sweet Orchid” is an erotic romance that tiptoes along the edge of purple prose, and as such the intended audience is the old-fashioned gentleman Vampire who likes to be reminded of the “good old days” of courting.

“Bite My Thigh” is pure steam! It’s about a woman who believes she’s found the perfect way to seduce a Vampire without being transformed or killed. She searches and finds her pleasure in the arms of multiple undead, until one day she goes one step too far… seems she’s read my previous guides, but didn’t take them to heart.

A last warning: If you don’t want to anger a Vampire, you better don’t mention certain stories about creatures sparkling in the sun…

By the way, the book titles and blurbs are my imagination, and any resemblance with existing books is purely coincidental. If you’re a writer and feel inspired, go ahead! The maximum I’d ask for would be an honorable mention if you’re ever asked about the source of inspiration.
