Team Vampire

Long before I cheered for "Team Alcide" on True Blood, I was definitely on "Team Vampire" in general. I grew up loving the fang-wagging, blood-sucking, hotness that were (most) vampires so it would only go to reason that I would eventually write one of my own. And that's what I'm doing.

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.

Brad Pitt, "Interview with the Vampire"

Jason Patric, "Lost Boys"

Kiefer Sutherland, "Lost Boys

David Boreanaz, "Angel"

Alex Loughlin, "Moonlight"

Kyle Schmidt, "Blood Ties"

Alexander Skarsgard, "True Blood"

The vamp brothers of "Pathos"

Sein from "Vampire's Portrait"

The vampire brothers of "Kiss of Blood"
(Koyoi Wa Kimi To Chi No Kiss Wo)

AND - just a little gratuitous "Team Alcide" (Joe Manganiello)

DID I FORGET ANY? (and yes, I purposely left out the sparkly one)


  1. Your book sound wonderful. Full fledged vamp girl here, no sparkly of course.

    Did you miss any? Nah. Except maybe ol'Dracula, who is still to this day... my fave. I do love Vlad. ;)

    Nice blog you have over here. :) Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Hello Amara and welcome. :) Yeah I should have included old Vlad but couldn't find a pic I liked. :)
    Thanks for liking my blog - it's new and I have no idea what I'm doing. :P
    You have a great weekend too. :)
