Vampires are Hot: Who Knew?

Currently Reading: No Holds Barred by Jayden Chelsee. I'm on chapter 8.

It must have been a slow news day. Besides the news that the reality star suspect was found dead in his hotel room (suicide), the lead story this morning was the fact that (gasp!) vampires are 'cool' again. I'm sure my friends are aware, this has been a known fact for at least a year now! Dakota's vamps hit the ebook world last year. Twilight hit bookstores and now the movies are being made. Several of my friends love Moonlight and True Blood. Are TV news anchors just now 'getting' this info, or did they just need to fill a slot?

And so the question was posed, 'Who's Your Favorite Vampire?'
-Original Count Drakula
-Bram Stoker's Drakula
-Lost Boys
-Brad Pitt/Tom Cruise 'Interview With a Vampire'
-Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Angel
-Twilight's Edward

Don't laugh, but I'm going with Lonnie Quinn: My vampire would be George Hamilton in 'Love At First Bite'.

And Dakota's vamps, of course!

I like the Twilight books, but my man of choice would be Jacob...based on the fact he's warm:) As I was reading the books, Edward's description made me chilly, in the body heat kind of way. I prefer a man I can snuggle up to and be enveloped by his body heat.

What's your preference?

Happy Monday...I'm off to scrub down my baseboards in the living room. Sounds exciting, doesn't it?

Ah, the sexy life of a romance writer. Not terribly turned on by vampires.

Geez, all you writers cleaning. Makes me feel like I should be doing it too. NAH! lol
I'm not big into vampires either!

I love love love "Love at First Bite!"

I was stunned to hear one of my 4th graders talking about reading "Eclipse" this summer! Those are some long books!

Of those listed... the Bram's dude. I liked him, the source of all evil.
