Day Six: VAMPIRES

I ran out of things to put on here about vampires. LOL. They are just everywhere, aren't they? Because of the success of Twilight, there has been an explosion of vampires in the market. For those of you who don't know, I wrote Vampires Rule before this huge popularity of vamps hit the fan. Bad timing on my part. I had a super good agent behind me, and we got a few nibbles at some top publishers, but in the end it was not to be. I was told by a few of the editors that they would have gladly published Vampires Rule if it wasn't for the satuation in the marketplace. So that is why my books are only available online now.

I don't blame the editors for feeling this way. It makes me roll my eyes now too when someone tells me they wrote a vampire book. I'm getting  little tired of them.  HOWEVER, there are exceptions. Some people just have awesome hooks that make you want to read their books even if you are sick of the subect matter. Here are some of the books that I think put a new twist on an old theme:

1. Suck It Up by Brian Meehl: A tongue in cheek story of a young vampire who drinks something called Blood Lite, a soy product that is like blood but doesn't come from humans, and he thinks staking should be a hate crime. I haven't read it. Sounds different.

2.  The Vampire Coalition: This is a series of books available as a box set for a low price. It's about a vampire who forms a group to protect humans from other vampires.

3. The Iron in Blood: This one sounds interesting. A girl gets a blood test and her world turns upside down as she becomes the world's most reluctant vampie, and there are three powerful brothers hunting her down.

The Woodlow Mansion:

Since no one comments, I'm not sure if anyone is even reading this story. I have a lot of other things I could be doing. If you want more, leave a comment. If it turns out more than a few people are reading it, I'll finish it.
