Thinking of Adopting a Vampire?

In celebration of Jaye Wells' [fellow fang-fan and author] beautiful new cover for her novel - Red-Headed Stepchild - that debuts in 2009 from Orbit US, here's a copy of a post I did back in March for Jaye's Adopt a Vampire Month on Jaye's Blahg Check out her cover at the end of this post and go check out the rest of the posts for National Adopt a Vampire Month on her blog - great fun was had by all *g*

Just why should you adopt a vampire?

Going by all the fantastic posts so far, I'd be surprised if there is anyone out there who hasn't already made the decision to adopt their very own vampire. But just in case you need a bit more persuasion information on the subject before taking that momentous decision, this is for those of you who are still wondering what all the fuss is about.

Want to go on a world tour with angst? Take a journey with Akasha and Lestat as Anne Rice tells us how The Queen of The Damned goes for world

Fancy a Greek god in leathers? Why not choose one of Sherrilyn Kenyon's hot Dark Hunters.

If a mysterious castle, bug eating slaves and a pack of pet wolves is your thing, then you have to meet The Count himself - Dracula.

Maybe you need to work off some aggression by slicing and dicing? Grab your sword and turn vigilante along with Blade.

Feeling thirsty? Indulge in a bottle of synthetic blood with
Charlaine Harris' super hot bad boy viking, Eric.

Need a bit of creeping dread to get your heart thudding, as you realise
the slavering monsters are real?
Go Vampyrrhic with Simon Clark.

Does the thought of losing all that blood make you feel faint? Try a
date with Jim Butcher's sexy Thomas instead.

In the mood for some laughs with your fangs? Wander round San
Francisco with Chris Moore and his Bloodsucking Fiends.

Do those little grey cells need a work out? Go on a murder mystery
weekend with Vicky Nelson and Henry Fitzroy in Tanya Huff's Blood Ties.

Searching for your soul mate? Look no further than Christine Feehan's romantic Carpathians.

Want to get up close and personal and indulge your Guilty Pleasures?Then dive into the wonderful seductive world created by Laurell K Hamilton.

Feeling oppressed and itching to rebel against the aliens? Follow
David Valentine into E.E Knight's conquered vampire earth.

Having a really bad day? Try kicking some serious arse with Nancy
Collins and her Sonja Blue.

But if those don't snag your interest, then keep looking because there are more vampire books out there than you can shake a whole load of stakes at. But, one last warning for any of you thinking about giving the vampires a try - once they sink their fangs into you, and you have a taste of what they can offer - well, there's no escape after that, they'll keep you under their spell for all eternity.

And just to add to the persuasion information sharing for those who might still be crouching behind that door and wondering whether adopting a vampire is the right way to go - If you've already succumbed, then who was the first vampire you ever met?

And here's Jaye Wells' fabulous new cover!
