I admit it – I’m a lousy tease. It’s one of those things that I’m not good at. A little flirting is manageable, but teasing is just a no-go for me. It isn’t that I wouldn’t like to be good at it, I’m simply not. There will be no confusion in my actions or words. No batting of the lashes or “accidental” brushes against you. I’m the kinda gal who is much more likely to look you in the eye and tell you what I want.
So I’m not going to drop little hints here and there about my Blood Link series. No sly references, no one line quotes, and no winks and nods. I’d have to hire someone with a clue to do that for me.
So like everything else I’ve done – I’ll go my own way again and instead of blurbing about my vampires, I’ll share with you some of the questions that generated the series: What if the United States had a military unit consisting of vampires? What would you use them for? How would you hide them? Who would be a candidate for transition? Would you take non-military vamps and put them through boot camp or would you turn special ops types when they fell in the line of duty? How do you keep them secret for so long? What happens when one goes rogue?
Then came all the questions about how my world works: Can my vampires be out in sunlight? Can they eat real food? Do they breathe? How often do they need to feed? How do they die? How long can they live? What skills do they have? Can they manipulate human minds? Do they believe in God? Do they suffer from bloodlust?
Literally hundreds of questions later I knew who my troops were and what their function was.
My military vampires exist in our world and operate a school where they teach escape, evasion, and tracking. Some are intel agents who travel the world gathering information while hiding in the shadows and eavesdropping. All of these are things vampires would naturally excel at.
Blood Link will be coming out in the next few days. What exactly is it about? It’s about military vampires, big trouble, demons, love, danger, sex, blood, violence, more love, more sex, more big trouble, more danger, more violence, etc. See, I told you I’m no good at teasing.
