An entire week dedicated to the mysterious and often romanticized legend of the vampire at EtS and here I sit, invited to be a part of that. How could I say no? Especially since legends are the dark corner of writing in which I thrive quite nicely, particularly when those legends involve lips and teeth and necks. Oh my! That has definitely got to be the holy trinity of literary deliciousness these days. Who doesn’t dream of being a regular donor for the likes of Angel or Spike or Edward or—I tremble—Eric Northman. Sign me up!
Today’s vamp, all dark and broody, offering eternal devotion and…you know, whatever else the author comes up with is a lure no writer can resist. Or reader for that matter. When I first decided to write my novel it was only meant to be a short story; a fresh approach to a well lusted myth. Being infatuated with most mythology and just about all history, of course, I wanted to go back to the beginning. So I reached deep into the past and my search just kept getting deeper and deeper and deeper. What I found? The vampire myth didn’t seem to have a beginning. It spanned not only back into the very heart of civilization but it seemed to stretch across the globe. From ancient Sumerians to modern America.
And that wicked little inner writer said those fateful words, “What if?” What if the reason vampire like lore has existed in some form or another throughout the history of man was because vampires really weren’t the undead at all? What if they were just another species of human? What if their interactions with humans through time have created the myths so well loved and feared in lore? And the Sanguen were born.
Gabe in More Than Blood is everything a modern day blood sucker should be; intense, sexy, and completely dedicated to his people. Until he meets Kel. Right away he knows she’s it for him, even if it means breaking every law he’s sworn to protect. And Kel…well, let’s just say that vampires aren’t the only myths I found steeped in the past.
