Vampire Poetry: Vampire

This poem of mine was originally published on Fang-tastic Books in the Vampire Poetry Monday, this past Fall (October).


Vampire

Black winged cape descends
The Dark Incubus has come,
To feed.

Innocence of life, taken in blood,
Which sustains
his need.

Life absorbed
Into one that’s none.

Dark Dweller.
Sun Hater.
Blood Drinker.
Life Taker.
Grave Maker.

Vampire!

Fiend and foe.
But friend to those who know,
The life he can give in taking.

IMMORTALITY,
his making.

Wishing all a Bloody good Holiday!... And some bite bits.

That other blood red (and green) holiday is now upon us, the only other time where we see as much red as on Valentines day or blood from ones' veins.


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.

4) And while you're at VampChix, be sure to check out their eternal VampBoyz list.

5) Unofficial, but bloody good nonetheless, check out the vamped apparel at the Zazzle Vamp Out store. Cool fan created slogan tees, such as this Eric dedicated one (which I did buy :o) : "1,000 years never looked so good" indeed.

6) And speaking of Eric, earlier this week, SciFiGuy treated us to a sneak peak of Charlaine Harris' new Sooike Stackhouse book 10 cover : Dead in the Family. Which is set for release May 2010.

7) *Singing* "On the first day of Christmas, my True Blood fantasy..." On HBO's official True Blood FaceBook page, you are invited to continue in the revelry. (Singing along, here was my answer: "one Viking Eric biting...").

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?


10) And speaking of vampires and angels, just a few minutes ago, Anne Rice announced via her official Anne Rice facebook page, about her official Anne Rice Ning page, she has recently created.


Lestat's mom, loves to keep connected with her fan(g)s...Not only does she have her official Anne Rice website, but there is also an official Anne Rice Twitter Stream and an official Anne Rice YouTube station....

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!?

And finally (for today at least), again, Thank You All for taking a stake "in" (but not "to") this ( VampirePhile) blog. Happy Holidays, and here's to All the best in the fang-tastic future ahead! :[



P.S. - I've added two new features to this here blog... One, at the very top (re: Blood Ties theme song with intro video) and the other, well... can you "Hear" what I'm talking about!?

Guest Post by Author: Chelsea Quinn Yarbro

VampirePhile is honoured to welcome to you today, author Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, on tour for her latest release: Burning Shadows : A Novel of the Count St.Germain.   Today, Ms. Yarbro Guest posts on Saint-Germain's  Rules of Vampirism.




Saint-Germain’s Rules of Vampirism


When I began working on the Saint-Germain Cycle, way back in the winter of 1970/71, I read extensively in the folklore of vampirism; I had studied the subject in college, and had continued to pick up interesting books on the subject — most of them are still on my reference shelves.  Wanting to maintain a consistency of vision in the five novels I intended to write, I made a list of what was believed of vampires the world over.  Since, as far as can be determined, all cultures past and present have at least one vampire myth in it — defining a vampire as an improperly dead person who sustains life by feeding on the living, usually through blood — just as all have a were-beast myth — that being a living person who, under external influences, transforms into a beast when those influences are present, as differentiated from shape-shifters, who are living people who can, at will, transform physically into any living creature.  Drawing on my reading, and my desire to push the Dracula image as far to the positive as possible and still have a recognizable literary vampire, I prepared my charts.


Anything that was held to be true in eighty percent of the cases I took as true.  Of the remaining beliefs, if I found one I liked that didn’t conflict with the majority of the folklore, I kept it.  The rest I discarded.  Those rules have remained with the Saint-Germain stories from the beginning and will, in all likelihood, last until the end.  And here they are:


      1) What the vampire gains from blood is the quality of contact with the person providing it.  Intimate love is more sustaining than erotic dreams, and far more nourishing than fear and panic: the more satisfied and aware his partner is, the more the blood nurtures him.  This makes Saint-Germain and his blood relations very responsive lovers.  Due to being undead, Saint-Germain is impotent, but his female blood relatives can have ordinary intercourse.


      2) Vampires are vitiated by sunlight, and in order to deal with prolonged exposure, Saint-Germain lines the soles of his footgear with his native earth which has to be renewed at the new moon, or it begins to lose potency.  He also lines saddles, baths, foundations of houses, the floor of carriages, the seats of cars, etc. with his native earth, replacing it as it loses strength.  He sleeps on a mattress atop a chest containing his native earth.


      3) Although capable of great physical strength, especially at night, vampires are immobilized by running water — this includes tides and currents.  Even still water can be uncomfortable. 


      4) Saint-Germain and his blood relations do not eat food.  And they do not drink.  Saint-Germain uses the ultimate vampire line, “I do not drink wine” in almost every story, an homage to Dracula
    5) Saint-Germain and his blood relations have no reflection, either in mirrors or in water.
If photographed, the image comes out blurred.  Saint-Germain has a waxwork of himself for such things as passport and visa photos.


      6) Saint-Germain and his blood relations die the True Death when their spines are severed or their nervous system is destroyed.  Being undead, they cannot catch or transmit diseases, they cannot drown or freeze.  Since fire destroys the body and the nervous system, it is deadly to vampires.


      7) Sacred or holy objects of any religion have no effect on Saint-Germain or any of his blood relations.  Entering a church or other religious structure does him no harm.  He is not repelled by prayers or other religious rites.


      8) Saint-Germain’s memory is very good, but not always totally accurate.  He occasionally has trouble recalling details more than 500 years in the past.  Saint-Germain’s first 1,500 years of undead life were monstrous.  He is discomfited by his memories of that time and rarely addresses his life during those years.


      9) Saint-Germain and those of his blood have some telepathic power over animals.  It is difficult to do, and requires almost complete rest, but they can use it when needed to influence animal behavior for a short time.


      10) As closely as possible Saint-Germain’s stories keep to what is known about the real man, and the claims he made in his lifetime.  Where there are blanks in his biography, I can fill in as I like, but the historical man’s accounts largely determine the Saint-Germain stories’ settings.


The real Comte de Saint-Germain was an alchemist, claimed to be 4,000 years old and said that he kept his youth by drinking the Elixir of Life.  He was known to sponsor a publishing house in Amsterdam; he claimed he could make jewels and gold; he spoke over a dozen languages; he was ambidextrous and his signature was the same in both his left and right hand; and had traveled extensively.  He wore black and white almost exclusively; was rarely seen during the day; did not eat in public.  He also claimed to have the secret for the sovereign remedy that would cure all illness. 
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!

Where have I been? / General Announcements / and All I want for Christmas is my “V” TV!


Where have I been? : Lost in “hyper” Space!

So just in case you were wondering (or even if you were not) as to where I  have been for the past several weeks  – having practically abandoned my blog updates of most things “vampiric” – Rest assured, some bloody good things are coming.

Nevertheless, the reason for my M.I.A is simple. I had temporarily become a Twitaholic and to a lesser extent, a FaceBook fiend! LoL!

Yes you read me right.
But it’s all related… to vampires of course!

Over the past couple weeks, after having created both a FaceBook page and a Twitter stream for this here blog. I had decided to explore both social sites further, getting a feel of the online community thereon, and especially those of the two most current newfangled (emphasis on “fang”) hit shows: True Blood and The Vampire Diaries.

At first I’d lurk about (like Edward in Bella’s room at night while she slept), reading the posts and discussions on the official TrueBlood HBO and CW Vampire Diaries FaceBook pages, as well as on their several Twitter counterpart, fan(g) pages: @TrueBloodHBO @TrueBloodNet @TrueBloodDotNet and  @CW_VampDiaries @tvdnews @tvdfansonline

And it wasn’t long before I too found myself joining in on both shows FaceBook discussions and Twitter tweets and re-tweets. As well as participating in the fun (but exhaustive) #FF :  *Follow Fridays and doing *Topic Trending!  (*that’s some Tweet speak for those not in the know).

So if you’re planning a hitchhike across the Twitter-verse to get your fave vampire show info fix, then the @forementioned are good places to start.

And also be sure to check out the “Mother” of all vampires (if you consider Bram Stoker to be the “Father” that is), Mrs. Anne Rice.


Yes, Lestat’s mom Tweets (via simultaneous linking of her FaceBook page and Twitter stream).  
@AnneRiceAuthor is also included among the females on my Authors-of-Genre list


So there you have it, I was lost in “hyper” space for the past several weeks… But now I’m back!

Info to the end (of this piece), according to The Global language Monitor: “Vampire” was the fifth word of 2009, while “Twitter” was the Top Word of 2009!


*   *   *

General Announcements:

So in these weeks to come between Christmas and the New Year (and sometime after), I should have a few bite bits (a.k.a Topic Treats) with which to deck the blogs!

a) All I want for Christmas is my “V” TV:  Some recommendations for dealing with the vampire TV show hiatus withdrawals.

b) I see a New Moon Rising: A review of New Moon.

c) The Vampire Diaries –dot, dot, dot – And the devilish, delish Damon Salvatore:  a commentary piece on the hit new show and the talked about vampire du jour!

d) Guest blog post by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro for the release of her new novel Burning Shadows: Saint Germaine Chronicles. (Blog post scheduled for Thursday, December 17th.)

So stay tuned!

*   *   *



All I want for Christmas is my “V” TV:


To use (and pun upon) that famous phrase from MTV in the 1980’s: “I want my “V” TV!” 
And no, I’m NOT talking about that new series re-make “V” (The Visitors) on ABC . I’m talking “V” as in Vampires!

Vampires have risen once again – but then again for those of us, who are fans of the fanged, vampires never went away –  it’s just that it may seem to some that they are everywhere these days ( yup, they don’t just come out at night anymore) ; and especially more so in the last couple years!

Apart from The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which recently ripped apart the box office on its opening day (kinda like the way those werewolves ripped apart the vampire Laurent), we have also had, earlier this year (back in June) the much anticipated return of True Blood, season 2 on HBO and the debut (this past Fall) of The Vampire Diaries (based on the novels of L.J Smith) on the CW.

It was a bloody good Summer / Fall for all things fang-tastic.

Alas, now December is upon us.

We’ve already seen New Moon, like what, 2 or 3 times!  Both TV shows are on hiatus – The Vampire Diaries is set to return on the CW in January for the 2nd half of its first season and True Blood is scheduled to return to HBO in June 2010, with Season 3 – and Day Breakers doesn’t hit theatres ‘til early 2010 either.

However, before we lie in the winter of our discontent and start shouting, batty in the belfry: “I’m mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore”, rest assured here are some recommendations of quick nip fixes for dealing with the vampire TV show hiatus withdrawals:

·        Beginning next week on December 14th,  for five days, the CW will be re-airing the first 10 episodes of  The Vampire Diaries . That's five days, 10 episodes, 1 full week!


·        Starting December 28th, catch True Blood season 1 on HBO. 3 episodes a night, 4 nights in a row.


·        For fans of Kyle Schmid or for those just curious to know about that vampire show I’m always tweet quoting about (and on which this blog was originally inspired… Henry Fitzroy anyone? ;o) – Blood Ties, season 1 and 2, is now available on DVD.
 

·        You think Eric and Damon are dangerously hot now? Well back then there was The Lost Boys. A classic that never dies and never grows old:  Need I say more?



·        And just for the neck of it: He was a grinch and a scrooge and a pet detective and yes, a vampire too (well almost), Jim Carrey in Once Bitten.



So what are some of your vampire TV show hiatus withdrawal recommendations?
I “invite” you to come inside, to leave your comments below:

Interview with: Roxanne Rhoads, author of Eternal Desire:


Today VampirePhile has the pleasure of hosting its very first author interview. So please allow me to welcome and introduce author Roxanne Rhoads, currently on her virtual book tour for her newest novella, the recently released: Eternal Desire.


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: So Eternal Desire is set in New Orleans around Halloween. Are there any other countries, places, events etc, that you feel make for good vampire story settings and why? 
RR: Twisted just right, any place can be used for a great vampire story but there's something about New Orleans...

VP: Who are some other women you may admire, be they authors or not, and why? 
RR: I admire a lot of women for persevering during times that have not always been women friendly. Most of all I admire my mom for everything she's had to endure and the fact that she is a survivor.

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.

VP: Now, if you don’t mind, I have a few questions sent in by a follower on the VampirePhile Facebook page: Victoria H is a young, aspiring writer and she asks:
a) “Where does Roxanne get her inspiration and ideas for her books to make every one of them unique in their own way?”
RR: Inspiration comes from everywhere though often seems to pop into my head while I lay in bed trying to sleep. An idea will just come to me and I try to put it on the page. I think my greatest works have never made it to paper though since I lose so much as I fall into sleep or just don't get the chance to write it down then it's gone.

b) “Does she have any advice for young aspiring writers like me?”
RR: Don't give up, so many writers get frustrated with rejection and give up. Another piece of advice, network, take classes, learn the craft.

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?
RR: Well I have twisted a few hybrids into my stories like a half witch half vampire in "Cemetery Seduction" and a half vampire half succubus in "Blood, Lust and Shadows". If I could invent something else new it would maybe be some kind of magickal creature with powers and immortality like a vampire without the need to drink blood.

VP: Well thank you very much Roxanne and wishing you continued success with the new release. It’s been a pleasure having you for this blogs first author interview, and looking forward to more from you in the future.
And be sure to visit Roxanne @ Fang-tastic Books, Roxanne’s Realm and on Twitter:
To see more of Roxanne's virtual book tour schedule see here.
RR: Thanks so much for having me here. It's been a pleasure.
Leave your comments for Roxanne (or if you want to just say "Hello"), below.

Vampire Poetry: My Life, My Love, My Blood

This poem of mine was originally published on Fang-tastic Books this past Summer (June).
But with Halloween coming soon, I thought it fitting to repost:


My Life, My Love, My Blood

Through my life, my love, my blood - You live.
Seeking the mortal, from immortality.
Claws tear at my skin,
Seeking the essence of life within.
And I, by choice, give in, to your sweet, subtle sin.


You live your lost life through my blood.
You, who have lived far beyond regular reality.
Akin to your own muse, am I.
And you shall weep those blood tears when I die,
As *Louis had wept for *Claudia.


My breasts bleed, nicked by your ferocious fangs.
As you seek the womb of my breeding being.
You know it will come, your senses have gleaned
And you will savour my secret spate to placate your pangs.

And in those moments of great despair
You will miss me when I am no longer there.
You will crave me, as the life you once loved,
The life you once had, the life that gave you blood.

*Characters from Anne Rice’s “The Vampire Chronicles”

Bite Bits : new "New Moon" and The Vampire Diaries trailers

Recently released new New Moon trailer with focus on Jacob.

And teaser trailer for the CW's upcoming The Vampire Diaries (see below):


Bite Bits : RDJ as the Vampire Lestat?

Say it ain't so!
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.
