10 Reasons Not to Read My Book

Great post, Rowena! It definitely inspired me. So here goes:

Ten Reasons Not to Read My Vampire Novel DARK CHANGELING:

1. If you don't approve of "good" vampires, you won't like the hero, psychiatrist Roger Darvell.

2. The vampires don't conform to the traditional undead template, because they're products of natural evolution.

3. Not only is Roger unafraid of crosses, he's a Catholic who attends church, er, religiously.

4. He can't turn into a bat or a wolf.

5. He moves around freely during the day (just like Carmilla and Dracula in the classic nineteenth-century stories).

6. The book contains some steamy love scenes.

7. But there's very little conventional sex, because male vampires have certain limitations in that area.

8. There's a brief passage making erotic use of menstrual blood.

9. A sympathetic character succumbs to a gory death.

10. Roger's partner and lover, Dr. Britt Loren, has bumper stickers on her car that read "Blood Donors Make Better Lovers" and "Don't Blame Me, I Voted Democratic."
