Notes from the books' author June 2009

To all the Carmella Jackson: Manifest Vampire book fans,

I just wanted to say thank you for your patience. Many of you have been asking me for the first editions of the book. We've pushed the ebook release back to July 1st to make a few more edits prior to releasing the ebook version, and the printed version is expected to be released around August 1st of 2009.

It's a very exciting time as we get closer and closer to being finished with Camella Jackson: Manifest Vampire, and we hope the wait is worth it.


Why is blood sexy?

Why is blood sexy? Every time we think about vampires, the image of blood immediately comes to mind. Vampire lips fastened upon a hapless neck, the very life force of its victim being drained. It is surrender, it is the release of control. Typically the victim is a woman. Is blood sexy because it is a literary substitute for intercourse? Seems like an easy association.

Which leads us to why do women feel that their job is to relinquish control? The vampires' victim is possibly the ideal of the self image of women. With every scene of a vampiric attack, we typically feel the heightened sense of expectation. It is iconic, it is powerful. The power inherent in the image is possibly the deepest we can image, for it is the victim giving complete control over to the vampire. One's life is held in the balance. To do so, is to give complete trust to someone.

Powerful stuff, and there is nothing more integral to life in our minds than blood itself. Life, blood, sex, trust, surrender. Is blood sexy? Ask yourself what is your definition of love, and you can answer the question yourself.
