"Making the world a better place, one book at a time."

gimme s'more vampires!

I have a new favorite question. 

“What team are you on?”

It’s a phrase I hear on a regular basis, and no, it has nothing to do with sports…or sexual persuasion.  The answer to this question is either, Team Claude or Team Sebastian, and I think I might have to have it tattooed somewhere on my body. 

Well…maybe with washable ink.

So if you’re wondering, “What’s the deal with Team Claude or Team Sebastian?” I have to ask you…where have you been?

This week marks nine weeks of my Tales of the Daywalkers serial. 

I never expected to write a weekly series.  I guess you could say it was a happy accident.  I wrote a stand-alone bit of flash fiction on a dare, and I could have never imagined the response I would get.  Not a day goes by without someone asking me about the story.  Or telling me who their favorite vampire is.  Or who would play them in a movie. 

I love it.

Especially when people tell me they were thinking about the characters all day.  Or when they toss out a name that would be absolutely perfect for the next victim. 

Apparently, I’m not the only one with people to eviscerate in fiction.

I can’t say often enough how much I appreciate all the fans of the series.  And not just because I’m an attention whore (yes, I said whore).  I do love the attention, but truly, I feel as if my vampires have lives (or existences) all their own and I’m just here to share their story.

So to all you #TeamClaude or #TeamSebastian fans…and all the #CasketSex fans…and the girls who suggested the vampires roast marshmallows in the burning carcass of another vampire…I say, Thank you! From the bottom of my heart.  Without you, I would be missing out on some of the best characters of my entire career. I hope to keep the series going for as long as you keep coming back to read it. 

And may that be a virtual eternity.

In the night…or the day.

Until the next time…I’ll be coming up with new adventures for our favorite vampires.
