Forever love - Guest blogger, Vampire Lover

Magnet #615 - Nightwalker by Jocelynn Drake

Remember when I said that I was superdupertired of the whole vampire craze? Yeah, well, even though I can totally see the attraction to vampires, and I'm totally watching Vampire Diaries, I'm still thinking they're pretty much around every corner.

But, that's good! Especially since I was fortunate enough to meet Jocelynn Drake at NY ComicCon this year, and she was kind enough to give me magnets from her series. Woot!

Anyway, I'm in the middle of
Nightwalker, and thought that maybe it was time for you guys to hear from a vampire-loving friend of mine who is responsible for a lot of that stuff being out there.

Ready, set..

I love the paranormal. Vampires? Let me see those fangs. Shape shifters? Please. Manimal was one of my all time favorite TV shows.

Between the Twilight series, True Blood and Vampire Diaries, there seems to be no escaping these vampires. And even more books are being published that feature otherworldly creatures.

Jocelynn Drake, for instance, has her Dark Days series, featuring a vampire (also known as a Nightwalker) enforcer. Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress novels has a half-vampire battling evil. And let's not forget those sexy shapeshifters in Pamela Palmer's Feral Warrior series.

I have to say, though, vampires still remain my favorite species. A taste for blood aside, they have super strength, can see in the dark, and will love you forever. Forever!

Don't judge.


So. Weird. A Vampire Weekend. No, not the band.

The Paley's doing a whole weekend of screenings and panels: Dark Shadows at Twilight: A Paley Center Vampire Weekend, from Friday, Nov 13 to Sunday, Nov 15 - all around vampires.

Who is going. Me. And the chick who wrote this post.

I think she has to go for work. I just want to go because you know I loves me some panels. And this one's gonna be cool. Check it out. It's on their site.

Saturday Event, 2:30 to 4:00 pm
TV Vampire (s)Takedown

Our panel of expert fans will debate the relative merits of different vampires across media in an appropriately spirited and irreverent fashion.

Trivia, special gifts, and a bloody good time for all!

Manimal? Manimal? That I am so judging. Some things are better seen through the haze of fond memory.

Hahaha. I've never seen Manimal. I remember it coming out - hazily. But I really don't remember watching it.
