VAMPIRE NOVELLA!

My writing has been put on hold lately thanks to a nasty bout of labyrinthitis - sounds exciting, but it ain't! Anyway, after my short story collection - Five Sexy Fantasies - I am now working on my very first vampire-themed story.

I have to admit to not knowing much about the genre although I know the Twilight series is hugely popular. Have done enough research to know what vampires are supposed to be able to do/not do, although there seems to be quite a wide variation on matters such as whether they eat normal food, shower, etc.

For my story I am making my own rules without, I hope, offending regular vampire buffs! It's loosely based on a famous French novel, 'Les Liaisons Dangereuses,' which is about an unscrupulous couple of aristocratic lechers who collude in debauchery and vengeance. The original novel is in epistolary style, i.e. a series of letters, but mine is a straight narrative.

I am hugely enjoying writing about a vampiric seduction. Not sure how long it will be yet - not full-length but a fairly substantial novella. So look out for 'Vampire Liaisons' written under my Vivienne LaFay pseudonym. It should be available as an Ebook at all the usual outlets later this month.
