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 and 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:

RR: Thanks so much for having me here. It's been a pleasure.

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”
