I started to count how many books I’ve had out since my first, Dark Rapture, was released in 1997, and I gave up at thirty-two, wasn’t sure if I should count novellas, too? But FOREVER VAMPIRE is around thirty, give or take one or two, I’d say. Doesn’t feel like I’ve written that many books over the past twenty years, and then it does. Some days it feels like I’ve written hundreds, or at least, hundreds of thousands of words. I love it. And I hope to continue writing for as long as my fingers will hold out and my imagination will provide me new characters.
Vail, the hero of Forever Vampire, is one of my favs so far. He’s a vampire who has lived in Faery all his life, and at the beginning of the story has only been in the mortal realm a short time, so he’s adjusting to that life, and he’s never had mortal blood (he’s addicted to faery ichor, but don’t tell him I told you that; he’ll deny it). He cruises onto the scene in a Maserati with a green mamba snake riding in the backseat, and hundred dollar euros fluttering out of the glove compartment, with Johnny Cash blaring over the radio. Man, I do love that vampire.
You can read the first two chapters at my website! And below is a trailer I put together to (hopefully) entice readers.
Now here’s what I want to know: What do you enjoy doing, a hobby or job, or whatever, that you hope to do forever?
