As a human presence, he's quite possibly a beautiful creature, stealing our gaze, and capturing our attention. But as a monster, he can frighten us senseless. But what's the best way to feed from our mortal lives than to either leave us wanting more, or to terrify us into his clutches.
A myth, a legend of centuries past; whether tales of vampires in history or vampires in today's media, we're bound to our curiosity of them.
Okay, I'll be honest. I had no clue what to do for this post. LOL! But since vampires have always been just so awesome for me since I was a kid, I knew I had to take part in this.
So, random post begins. FYI: Read on for your chance to win one of five free books!
I was a vampire movie whore:
My very first vampy movie was The Lost Boys, as was probably a lot of others, right? It had all the ingredients for a wonderful film. Bad boys (don't forget hot boys), horror, the vampire temptation, all of it.
It was because of this movie, I dreamed about being a vampire. haha! Of course, I was eight years old when this came out. You know, kids...
Next movie? 92's Bram Stoker's Dracula. Let me warn you, and this is something I didn't know at the time, but it's not quite the most appropriate movie to watch in your grandmother's house. O.o I think I stared at the screen during the dirty parts, praying my granddad wouldn't walk in... if I remember right, he did, but the scene was long over.
Strangely, they had the movie for check out at the local library. *shrugs*
After that, I was hooked. I searched up every vampire movie I could find, including cheap B-rated movies (that weren't actually that bad). I began to write short vampire stories for fun. But the one movie that I loved was... ta-da Interview with the Vampire. Who knew? LOL
Now, twenty years later, and I'm still battling the vampire bug. When those damn things bite, they hold on strong, man. They won't let go. I've seen the movies, read (some) books, and roleplayed in my own vampy world.
I'm also extremely interested in the history of vampire lore. There are tons of books out there with all sorts of interesting facts and legends past down from generations from all parts of the world.
I'm also interested in those who are and/or claim to be a vampire today. Yes, there is a whole community out there; websites and books on real vampires.
So, yes, movies were only the beginning.
*ends random post*

Dark Night Skies Book 1
Michael Krauss has it all. An awesome set of wheels, a beautiful condo and a career in the city's most prestigious agency, the Paranormal Investigation Unit. One thing he doesn't have, answers. Why is he suffering nightly from visions of his past? Memories of the long-haired beast who tried to take his life ten years ago.
It is up to him to figure out who, or what, this creature is. On one fateful night, he gets the opportunity he's been waiting for. As the field investigators are searching the old remains of a haunted home, the creature calls to him.
Soon, he realizes his attacker is a vampire who has a mysterious connection with him. Not only does he have to ward off the vampire's fangs, but his lustful advances.
