I would love to explore the world of vampires, werewolves and witches with you! My new book, Darkness Within is a Young Adult novel with a mixture of these three elements.
I believe the book would also appeal to women as well as teenage girls. Just like Twilight does.
What is it that is so appealing and yet appalling about vampires? Let's start with that. Who wouldn't want to be beautiful and young forever? I would bet most people are terrified of death, no matter what their beliefs are about what happens when their hearts stop beating. I know I am.
Of course the appalling part for most of us is drinking human blood and killing to get it. I know the main vampires in Twilight didn't kill humans; but there are plenty of other novels and movies where the vampires do kill humans for their blood.
Over the next several weeks, I would like to explore the myths and history surrounding vampires, werewolves and the beauty and dark side of witches. I think this would be a great time to do with my book coming out and Halloween just around the corner.
My book comes out tomorrow!
