Welcome to Day #22 of JoJos 30 Day Birthday Bash. Today we have the amazing Author Cynthia Eden. Who's written Eternal Hunter, I'll Be Slaying You, Deadly Fear and so much More!!! I first met Cynthia on the DWW (dangerous Women Writing) Yahoo Group, and got to know her better on Twitter. I have to say she is one of the Sweetest people I have met! And Sunday Was Cynthias Birthday!!! So don't forget to wish her a Happy Birthday too!!!
Hi, everyone! (And a big thanks to Jodie for inviting me over to chat!)
Today, I want to talk about vampires. Not the shiny, slightly broody vamps (though I know many, many folks area addicted to Edward). Instead, I want to talk about a rougher breed of vamps—think Spike. Think Angel. Think—no shine.
So here are some lessons that I have learned from paranormal romance novels and Buffy:
1. Men with super sharp teeth aren’t afraid to kick ass. Really. They won’t just bite you. They’ll make you wish you’d never been born.
2. A vamp’s bite isn’t necessarily a sexy thing. Don’t get me wrong, a bite can be sexy (I sure try hard to make some of the bites in my books sexy), but, depending on the vampire, it can also be a brutal attack. So don’t run around saying, “Bite Me!” (um, yeah, like I did in the title of this blog) unless you are ready for some pain.
3. Vamps are sexy, with or without a sparkle. They’re rough, they’re immortal, and they are extremely cheap dates. No food at a fancy restaurant is required. All these guys hunger for is…well, their companions.
4. Immortal=he’s still older than you! So you might think you’re a cougar, but no, sorry, you don’t get that title yet. Because despite that vamp’s youthful appearance, he still has about 100 years on you. You are not robbing the cradle. Sure, you may be robbing the grave, but not the cradle.
Are you a vampire fan? Got any lessons you’d like to share with me? Bring them on! J I’ll give one commenter an autographed copy of my July paranormal romance, I’LL BE SLAYING YOU.
