Fun-Post Friday - Week 2

Who haven't fantasized about dating a Vampire? To have a boyfriend like Edward Cullen or Dimitri Belikov? Admit it - you have! (I sure have at least!)

Here are two books that might help you if you're interested in catching a vampire - and keeping him!

How To Date A Vampire by Sophie Collins:

This is a fantastic magazine-style guide to romance for young teens...with a twist! For any girl looking for a boy who's more Cullen than caveman, this book is your helping hand to a happy ending. A vampire boy is smart, he's sexy, and he's waiting to discover someone a little bit different; so use this little lifesaver to show him what's so special about you and set his pulse (if he had one) racing. Of course, if like Bella or Buffy, the man of your dreams is more than just a high school crush, you won't find help in the problem pages. Luckily for you, this book is packed full of quizzes, charts and failsafe advice, from finding out if the guy giving you sleepless nights is a real vamp or a fanged faker, to great date ideas that don't involve Type-O milkshakes. With space to write about your own close encounters, plus style advice and beauty tips that are sure to slay him on sight, this is the only guide you'll ever need to spotting a vampire and knocking him (un)dead.

How To Catch And Keep A Vampire: A Step-by-Step Guide To Loving The Bad And The Beautiful by Diana Laurence:

Who needs a book on dating a vampire? Well, Bella Swan and Sookie Stackhouse to name just two. They are fortunate to have vampire boyfriends. But what the heroines of Twilight and True Blood don't have and could use is some advice on getting along with them. Everything they and every other red-blooded American girl (and guy) wants to know about finding a dreamy blood-drinker and keeping him is within How to Catch and Keep a Vampire: A Step-by-Step Guide to Loving The Bad and the Beautiful. And who better to introduce mortal readers to the world of dating a 21st century vampire than a few mouth-watering immortals? The cast includes: Ethan, with his aquamarine eyes and supernaturally seductive piano playing. Mordred, classically cruel, dark, and handsome, with a thing for black leather gloves. His entrancingly cute carrot-topped friend Adam, as sweet as Mordred is scary. Gunnar, with his rich, golden hair, and dastardly but delightful knack for getting his way. The experienced and fascinating Colin, with his exquisite latte-colored skin and exotic beauty. The eccentric but gorgeous Aidan, purveyor of ancient magic. And enigmatic Conner, with his deep, dark eyes and protective soul. These undead charmers will win the hearts and minds of readers everywhere, and author Diana Laurence will be their expert guide.

Hey, Fan(g) Girl, thanks for the shout-out about my book! Your readers might be interested too in the fun stuff going on on the book's official Web site: We've got some interesting Q&A there both with me and with my vampire associates, and people are welcome to write us more questions.

My book is for anyone who is obsessed with vampires and doesn't quite know what to do about it. It's more than just fun, it's also romantic, a little scary, and helpful too.

Thanks again, and keep up the great work on your new blog!
