I Love Vamps.
By: Cynthia Eden
(Thanks so much to the lovely Lauren for inviting me over today!)
I saw my first black and white vampire movie when I was about eight years old. I wanted that vampire to get the lady he loved—and I wanted them to be happy in his cold, dark castle. Instead, that poor vamp was staked.
Sad. So sad.
Years passed, but my love for the vamps just grew. I found the awesome Spike on the Buffy series. I rooted for him. Why, why couldn’t Buffy appreciate his awesomeness? I did.
Then came the very short-lived Moonlight show on CBS. Again, falling for my vamp. Only…yep, Mick vanished when the show was canceled.
Don’t others share my mad, bad vampire love?
The heroine of my latest book, I’LL BE SLAYING YOU, definitely doesn’t share my love. In fact, I think of her as the anti-me when it comes to vamps. For Sandra “Dee” Daniels, the only good vamp is a vamp with a stake shoved deep into his heart. Vamps killed her family, and she hates them. They aren’t sexy, they aren’t mysterious. Instead, to her, they’re just prey.
Oh, yes, she’s a vamp hater.
Does she stay that way? Well, guess you’ll just have to read the book (Read it! Read, read, read!) in order to find out.
What’s your take on the vamp? Sexy hero or evil monster? Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. I’ll pick one random commenter to win an autographed copy of I’LL BE SLAYING YOU.
