Its not the new Vampire...Nothing is.

Im so tired of the "werewolves are the new vampire" thing. Because be honest, its not. As awesome as were-things are vampires always have been and will be top of the paranormal 'sexy' list. I mean they are mysterious, usually broody and dark and sensuous and well they will never need you to give them a flea dip or get that wet dog smell. I mean yes they are known most because they suck blood. OkayYes, that is icky but I'd rather date a blood sucker than date my dog. I have nothing against werewolvies! I love animals...just not like that. They aren't sexy. And the shape shifting seems so painful! Big Ouch. Vampires are the same ol Vampires so who needs new ones?

That said Werewolves are werewolves so why would they want to be the new Vampires? Say that to them and I'm sure they'd eat your butt alive. I am reading a wolf book so awesome, its like the first draft but it wil be out next year the author is on twitter follow her @shannon_delany, let me just say I read Twilight when it first came out years ago before it became "twilight" and I get the same tingly awesome oh my gosh this book is good feeling I got when I read this book. First draft or not! I cant wait to get the final project and see how it comes out. Its going to be a huge thing guys! If the world is ready for werewolves. I mean I pride myself on knowing the next huge thing. Not that I am Miss Cleo- at work I say that and the people look at me like I Am Crazy. Too young I Guess. I'm getting old I Need To Remember That. But I Dream To Be An Editor. so I Like To Think I Am Good At Spotting The Next "Big Book." 13 to Life by Shannon Delany
She may be able write a novel on a cell phone but I Find Writing A Blog On Mine Tedious! Cheers! Casse

You guys have no idea how hard this blog was to write on this stupid phone! I wanna say never again but this was obviously a labor of love! Love of Shannon, love of 13 to Life, love of great writing and love of books period. But with a phone like mine that freaks and capitalizes every single word? SMH. I deserve a freaking gold metal! pulitzer of the blog! Just shows how much I believe in this book! So don't let me have wasted my time. Spread the word, go to the 13 to life blog site and for the love of books buy it when it comes out! Tell Shannon she is AWESOME! @shannon_delany I wil post her blog address when internet is fixed. *cross fingers* soon.

WOW, Casse,

You have no idea how much I needed to see something like this today! You've really made my day! :-) I'm so glad you're enjoying 13 TO LIFE over at Textnovel.com. And I've heard the same things you have about werewolves being "the next vampires" and I just shake my head.

I'm with you: why be something you're not? I love my werewolves (and some of the awesome authors who blurbed for me admitted they don't usually like werewolves but they really loved mine ;-).

And you'll have a great perspective on the entire book--and the evolution of the story--by reading it in its serialized version first. It has changed dramatically since I posted it at Textnovel.com (and I left it there pretty much unedited hoping it'll inspire other aspiring authors :-).

Thank you so much for mentioning me here on your blog *hugs* and as we get closer to the release date of book 1 (June 2010--my head spins just thinking about it) keep in mind I'll be looking for bunches of great spots (like yours!)online to add to a blog tour and contest circuit, so please remember me. :-)

And look at you texting--go girl! ;-)

Have you tried any of the books about angels? I read Hush, Hush earlier this year and Ican see angels becoming the new vampires although I am not against werewolves either.

I read Hush, Hush. I love it and not just because I write about adult nephilims either. I love angels, fallen and otherwise. Patch is hawt but Pietr is pretty dang hot himself. This summer keep an eye out for 13 to Life by Shannon k? I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed from what I read. The chemistry is there!
