Black winged cape descends
The Dark Incubus has come,
Innocence of life, taken in blood,
Into one that’s none.
Fiend and foe.
But friend to those who know,
The life he can give in taking.

So I'd like to take this time to give a warm, red blooded Thank You and wish Happy Holidays, to all my Vamp-Boy and Fang-Girl followers - the newly Turned and Ancient alike (on here and those also following on Twitter and FaceBook, who stop by, occasionally, to read what I have to write :o).
And here's a little Red Round-up of some of the Season's "V" - things:
1) Don't forget to check author Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's Guest post here on VampirePhile from last Thursday December 17th, on St. Germain's Rules of Vampirism.
And also, from back in October, VampirePhile's very first author interview with author Roxanne Rhoads.
2) Do you have your Fitzroy? Henry that is! Be ready for 2010 with 12 months of the handsome Blood Ties, bastard Prince himself, vampire Henry Fitzroy calendar from CafePress.
3) VampChix is doing their 12 days of Christmas countdown, with only one day to go. Check it out and see who or what arises on the last (Christmas) day.
8) Today, over at the Eternal Vigilance, Gabrielle Faust, has posted a new clip from the upcoming DayBreakers, set for release in January 2010.
9) I've been hearing alot of buzz on this fairly new (August 31) book release called Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. Some are touting it as the next big thing after Twilight. Only this time, it's with Angels. So who knows, soon Angels may be the new Vampires?
Well I for one, I'm glad she likes keeping connected... here's hoping she may give some consideration to the suggestions of (our beloved) Kyle Schmid for the role of (her beloved) Lestat!?

- 5) Saint-Germain and his blood relations have no reflection, either in mirrors or in water.
His servant was named Roger, and he said he had met Saint-Germain in Rome during the reign of Vespasianus. Roger vouched for all of Saint-Germain’s stories so long as they occurred after they met. Roger himself disappeared from Europe and all recorded information sometime in 1784 or 1785. Saint-Germain’s last verified sighting by someone who had known him at the Court of Louis XV was in Genoa in1805; Saint-Germain said he was going to Egypt to continue his alchemical studies. Since he had been reported dead twice before, some dismiss this sighting as fiction, but it seems so like the man that I hope it’s true.
So far these formulae have held the series together over thirty years. With a little luck, they'll continue to do so for some time to come.
Burning Shadows (St. Germain Chronicles #23, Novel #21) is available now, where good books are sold!
Wednesday, December 9, 2009
Scheduled for Thursday, December 17th,VampirePhile will have the pleasure of a Guest blog post by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro on the topic of : Saint-Germain's Rules of Vampirism for the release of her new novel Burning Shadows: A Novel of the Count Saint-Germain (St.Germain)

Leave your comments here (or preferably there if interested).
Also, this week, I'll be featuring my top10 picks for fave Vampire, beginning with these two at number 10 and 9, respectively:
Friday, October 23, 2009
VP: Hello Roxanne, for those reading who may not yet know about you, tell us a bit about yourself: such as how you got started, how long you've been writing?
RR: I have been writing erotica and erotic romance since 2005. I started out writing for Tit-elation.com and Sex-Kitten.net. Since then I've been published around the web, in several magazines, print anthologies and in eBooks.
VP: What do you find attractive about the world of the Paranormal?
RR: Everything. :-) The connection to the unknown, the ability to bend things to your will, the sexy supernatural creatures...
VP: You have described Eternal Desire as: "a vampire story with erotic elements".
Why do you think eroticism and vampires go hand in hand (or in this case "fang in neck")?
RR: In the 19th century when vampire literature like Carmilla and Dracula became popular the vampire was used as an erotic substitute during a time when sexuality was taboo.
Today the vampire still holds that sexual connection- the fear of the unknown, the eroticism and intimacy involved with stalking your prey, devouring someone, the exchange of bodily fluids (blood), it is all so intimate and can be used as metaphor for any number of sexual situations.
Plus there's just something incredibly sexy about a creature with supernatural powers, extreme good looks, and bedroom skills that can go way beyond what any human is capable of.
VP: I read in your interview on AuthorsbyAuthors : “A vampire show I truly miss is Blood Ties".
As this VampirePhile blog was started mainly due to that show (well beloved and still missed by many), I have to ask, what was it about Blood Ties that appealed to you?
RR: I loved so much about Blood Ties, even more so after reading the books by Tanya Huff that the series was based on. First of all I didn't find the show to be cheesy or cliched like so many vampire shows. Henry is an amazing vampire, secure with himself and not obsessed about being a "monster", he accepted himself and wasn't all "boo hoo I'm not human anymore and no one can love me because I am a monster". No he was strong and so confident and Kyle Schmid played Henry perfectly.
Then there was Vicki, one of the strongest and most stubborn heroines ever. You have to love her. Then I was hoping to see more of the love triangle between her, Henry and Celluci like in the books but the show was cut off.
VP: With the current “undead” trend in film and Tv being ever so popular with True Blood, Twilight, Vampire Diaries etc – seems like the fans want more fangs! What are some vampiric works you’d like to see adapted for the big or small screen? And, if you haven’t already, would you try your hand at penning a script?
RR: I don't know much about scripts but perhaps someday I'll give it a go, who knows anything is possible. As far as books to screen...hmm...I've heard LKH's Anita Blake is going to be on television, whether it is going to be a series or just a movie I'm not sure. I am interested in seeing that come to life. Another series that would be great would be Kim Harrison's The Hollows series. I would love to see Rachel Morgan brought to life on screen.
b) “Does she have any advice for young aspiring writers like me?”
VP: And finally Roxanne, I guess we could mostly agree (especially for those of us who love them), that vampires are perhaps the more desirable of the paranormal creatures. Nevertheless, if you could invent / create a new kind of supernatural creature to add to the mix, what would it be and why?

And teaser trailer for the CW's upcoming The Vampire Diaries (see below):
Well this will just bite if it turns out to be true.
Robert Downey Jr to be the next vampire Lestat?
Readers, what say you to this?
I think they should perhaps consider a fresher, young face.
I’m thinking of course of Kyle Schmid who portrayed the vampire Henry Fitzroy in tv’s (unfortunately short lived) “Blood Ties”.
He is an as yet to be super famous, but extremely talented young man!
And there’s no denying his appeal and depth as a potential Lestat.
