I have to say first off that I love vampires. Since I was five years old I have loved the idea of these creatures. It is only recently after taking a trip to Barnes & Noble that I realized how many vampire books are really out there. I had until this trip been working on a book which has vampires in it. That all changed the other day when I looked at the Y/A section of Barnes & Noble.
Is there a point with all the vampire books, movies, and other media where people will get tired of the fangs, the coffins and everything that goes with the creatures of the night. I hope not, some recent comments on-line has me thinking that. I feel the point is nearing where some people may say enough. No more vampires.
My love of vampire grew from the first time I saw Dracula with Bela Lugosi. Every year after that I wanted to be a vampire for Halloween. Some of my family know of this love and have given me the name Lestat, in homage to Anne Rice’s vampire. The name Lestat is one that I have asked my family to stop using as well as some friends.
Is there a fang fatigue brewing, or will the love of the undead continue.
