    The World of No Rest for the Wicked

    When I started NRFTW, I had no idea it took place in a pre-existing supernatural world. I’m not going to get into all the known settings and entities that exist in my head, but when it comes to that world specifically, it’s inarguably the biggest, oldest, and one that I understand the best. You could say I live there. 🙂 So, what do I mean when I say it exists in a world I’d already created? In NRFTW, there’s a shifter in plain sight. I hint at it, but I don’t talk about it, because one, Tatum doesn’t know that this person is a shifter, and two, it has nothing to…

    Author Interview: Sara Dobie Bauer

    Hey, hey!! Special awesome guest Sara Dobie Bauer is visiting the blog today to talk vampires, writing, and what kind of powers she would happily accept from a genie. BITE SOMEBODY ELSE, sequel to BITE SOMEBODY (my favorite book that I read last year!) released to the world yesterday! ^_^ Welcome Sara!! 😀 Firstly, can you tell us a little bit about the BITE SOMEBODY universe and what inspired it? The Bite Somebody universe is one of awkward, petty, cuss-a-lot vampires living in the Florida Keys. They’re not into world domination or making humans their slaves (except maybe in the sexual sense. Ahem, Imogene). They’re more interested in watching 80s…

    Being Like Super Productive & Whatever

    Usually when it’s crunch time, meaning I’m almost done with a story, I will fill every available hour of my day with writing. As a result, I burn myself out and take a few weeks off to recover. What this does, however, is make it super hard to sit down and start writing again. Like, super hard. And that 15 day break turns into two months. Meaning I’m far less productive than I could be. A kind of, what I would call “normal” productivity that I can pull off without stressing myself out. Not to long ago, a poetry writing friend of mine told me about a book she found…

    Best Movie Vampires

    Happy Halloween! This is a post I’ve wanted to do for some time and what better time than on Halloween? It was this or scare you with how much I love the Chucky movies. I’ve uploaded some vampire pictures for your enjoyment. Now, I only included my favorite vampire movies, but I do want to give a shout out to Fright Night. It’s a fun movie, kind of campy, kind of gross and scary, but I want to talk about the vampires I actually liked and there is nothing about the vampire in Fright Night that I liked. Number 1: Kraven I didn’t even need to see his fangs to…

    Hey, There’s A Fang In My Soup!

    With the promised emergence of Dracula coming to NBC this fall, this vampire fan is once again wildly excited about vampire media. I couldn’t get into the Vampire Diaries (but I wasn’t all that crazy about the books, so no surprise there). I’m sure there are other shows out there with vampires, but sadly I don’t know what they are. So I’ve had little contact with vampires on TV outside of my Buffy and Angel seasons on DVD and the short lived CBS show MOONLIGHT starring the awesome Alex O’Loughlin. Take note True Blood…this is what a mainstream modern day vampire is supposed to look like. Not that I don’t…
