Good morning. Thanks to Blak for always having me here every two weeks to babble. I really appreciate that Sharita lets me out to meet the people for visits. *grins*

Today I wanted to speak about one of my favorite topics. Vampires! Woohoo… What’s so great about them? Damn, what isn’t? As I said in a recent interview, to bite and suck to sustains ones existence is a lot of fun. If you could turn me into anything, I’d love to be a bloodsucker. Trolling through the night or day because I’d be strong enough to withstand the light. Seeking my next victim to drain of all their juices, and unlike Twilight, I don’t sparkle. *grimaces* I’d fly were I needed to go and people, not on a plane.


So, when doing my latest short story, which is an m/f, *shudder*, I had to think about what I wanted my main character to look like. Of course, he had to be a rocker, no question, and no, I didn’t want to use my favorite movie vamps, Louis and Lestat.
I wanted someone dark, someone that didn’t fit the typical mode of vampire. So I reached back into BL’s old stories or Sharita’s if you’d prefer, and picked our first non Duran Duran muse, Peter Steele.

For those of you who don’t know, Peter Steele was the lead singer of the band Type O’ Negative. Songs like, Bloody Kisses, Christian Woman, Love You to Death, many death and vampyric references from him in a lot of his tunes but he, who was a 6”4 man might not have been anyone’s pick for a Vampire movie.  So because I like to write things contrary to the norm, he was a perfect fit for my small tale that one day I’d like to make longer. I Dream of Dalian is the morph of our first tale, Dream of Vampadonis which was Sharita’s first non Duran tale and the man above was our muse. A story about a woman devoid of love but has the music from her favorite musician to get her through. He pulls her into a dream and the question is, will she want to come out?

It’s a short tale that’s appearing in the Naughty Nights Press Wicked Wanton Halloween anthology and I’m really happy I’m paying homage to one of the greats in metal with it. I’m sure if he were alive, he wouldn’t have minded.

Thanks for listening and look for the anthology to come out just in time for Halloween!
