My WIP is about a vampire named Kael. Kael is Scottish or as someone told me I could say "he's Scotch" but that brings to mind that he's made of hard mint candies or filled to the brim with booze, so let's just leave it at Scottish. He's a plethora of contradictions, my Kael is - he was a warrior and lived the warrior's life but he also resided for a few years with some Tibetan monks, hence the contradictions.
As all my writing generally is, this will be an emotional story and though I'm only 3,000 words in I'm already in love with my characters. I've heard writers say that it's hard to let their characters go when their story is completed and I totally agree. It's like raising one of your kids and watching them leave home - maybe not exactly like that but you get the gist. I'm beginning to think that a lot of what I write will end up with sequels and prequels and whatever else kind of quel I can think of. This has been the case in my fanfiction career and I'm already writing more to my Hot July Days story "Outfoxed" so I think that will be my future - having trouble letting any of my characters go.
Here's a few of my fave vampires.
