HAPPY NEW YEAR: Kyle Schmid WINS, yet again!

HAPPY NEW YEAR once again to ALL my 'Fang'tastic followers, be you following here on the blog, on Twitter, FaceBook, Myspace, LiveJournal or even on Bloggers or on the Playlist!

Well it seems like it was just yesterday (albeit a year ago) that we were announcing Kyle Schmid's win in the 1st ever annual 'Sexiest Man in the Vampire realm' poll done by Vampire Examiner Raelynn Garcia. Well won't ya know it, he has done it again

This year, Kyle won with a whopping 107,325 votes.

Kyle's dedicated fans came out one again, proving to be quite the force to be reckoned with, and helped crown Kyle, who played 1st Duke of Richmond and Somerset Prince Henry Fitzroy, turned vampire in tv's Blood Ties, King of the sexiest men in the vampire realm.

Kyle even won 'fangs' down over his upcoming Three Inches co-star and fellow, former vampire  James Marsters ( aka 'Spike' on Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

Kyle's portrayal of Henry Fitzroy (bastard son of King Henry VIII of Tudor) in Blood Ties, based on the Blood Books by Canadian author Tanya Huff, definitely still resonates within the hearts and minds of his fans. And if these latest results prove anything, his portrayal of Henry, and Kyle himself, will be in their hearts and minds, for a long time to come.

It should also be noted, that Kyle's portrayal of vampire Henry, also won, yet again for the second year in a row, Vampire Wire's Ultimate Hawtest Vampire Contest.

So what's next for Kyle? 

Well you can keep an eye on his IMDb or check out his Official FaceBook page or even his official fan site Kyle Schmid Central to keep updated.

I am holding hope (and I know I'm not the only one) towards the World War I drama Four Saints getting off the ground.

Therein Kyle is set to star along side another sexy man, his fellow Canadian, Kris Holden-Ried (formerly William Compton on The Tudors), who currently stars as were/shifter fae, Dyson on the new hit Canadian tv series Lost Girl ... I, for one, would just love to see Kyle do, say an extended guest stint on Lost Girl (and I know I'm not the only one of his fans liking this idea as well ;) but that's for another fae, I mean, day... (Read my initial reaction to Lost Girl> here...

And, in the meantime, for a second year in a row...   
Here's looking at you, Schmid!

'Drawn to the Predator' by Raven Corinn Carluk.

Today VampirePhile would like to welcome author Raven Corrin Carluk with a guest post on the subject of the vampire predator.

Drawn to the predator - by Raven Corinn Carluk

Hello everyone.  I'm pleased to be here, and a big thank you to Soni.  Always a pleasure to deal with other vampirephiles. 

We all love vampires here, so I'm sure I don't need to tell you they're the coolest monster, or anything like that.  Since there are different reasons to love vampires, however, I will gladly talk about that.

To me, vampires should be a little vicious, a little arrogant, and all predator.  If they're trying to be human, or refusing to drink human blood, then they're just not a vampire to me.

Not that they have to be monsters.  The beasts in 30 Days of Night weren't that sexy, though fun in their own way.

I'm talking about Lestat, or Dracula, or Eric.  They can be romantic, and they all have confidence and sexyness, and they would all hunt a girl to climax.  Without getting all mopey and keeping her safely at arm's length.

How are you to enjoy the best part of being with a vampire if he won't bite you?  One might as well tell a roller coaster enthusiast that watching a film of roller coasters is good enough. Or that a tofurkey is a replacement for turkey.

If a vampire won't drink blood, how are they really a vampire? Aren't they then just a human with a sun allergy?

It's the fact they're predators that draws me to vampires.  Being stalked is very much a thrill, especially when it culminates in a fantastic time.  Not only is there pleasure in the bite, but you can be satisfied knowing that he needs you, and you're giving him the very thing he requires to live.

And there's not much better than that. 

So who's your perfect predator? 

Raven Corinn Carluk writes in the shadows on the path to fame.  Learn about her novel All Hallows Blood on her site, and keep up to date with her on her blog or through Twitter.  She looks forward to hearing from you, and promises not to draw blood.
