A Long Journey

I'm writing today with blood on my lips.
 Well, let's say I have a taste for blood since it's been a long road while writing Allured, and editing underneath her body. The novel started out with 500 spine tingling pages. Now, after putting Allured through the shredder, she clocks in at 444 gripping pages of excitement. 
It really blows me away when I think how much work and time this novel took to get ready to shop out to agents. Three years to be exact. I am sure it will be all worth it in the end. 

Vampire Craze Rocks Our World

Vampire lure has come a long way since Bram Stoker Gothic horror novel “Dracula.”

We've enjoyed the novels from Anne Rice, “The Vampire Chronicles,” that jumped started the vampire craze during the 1990’s with the movie “Interview with a Vampire.” Since then, it seems that the public all around the world has a craving for vampires and it does not seem to stop. Many new authors are coming out with different twist about vampires, causing many novels being turned into motion pictures as “Underworld” and “Twilight” Others, as “True Blood,” a story based off Charlaine Harris; Sookie Stackhouse novels are a large hit, thanks to HBO’s producer Allan Ball. And let us not forget the TV series Vampire Diaries originally written by L.J. Smith that has young and old viewers begging for more.

But where does it end, or does it? Will the public eventually get sick of vampires or will this craze be an ongoing legacy that will continue at the box office for many more years…
