Vampire Bites Blog Tour with author Katie Salidas

I've had my eye on this author for a while so its completely squeeworthy to be part of her Vampire Bites tour - especially seeing its all about one of my FAVORITE subjects... vampires! Out of all the supernatural creatures out there, these fangy men turn me to mush! People ask "Why?" and today, Katie answers it ... enjoy!

WHY Vampires? What is it about them, or the concept of these undead underworld creatures that turns you on, inspires you.

Ahh, why is such a big question to answer. Ha! I guess I would have to break it down into levels to properly convey my love for the creatures of the night.

For starters, my original interest stems from an age old fear. Many of us fear death. It’s part of the human condition. Death is inevitable. The fear though is what lies on the other side. It’s a great unknown and that is where the real fear is. Growing up in a religious household, I was taught that it is heaven on the other side, but can one ever really be sure what awaits? It’s no secret that I fear death and always have. That is why I find the vampire so intriguing. They, though fictional, are immune to that mortal condition and thus, are able to escape that often scary unknown on the other side. Reading about vampires allows me, for a time to escape that worry too. To be able to fantasize about the ability to live forever is a pleasant thing. It’s the escapism that first attracted me.

While escaping from the mortal condition I’m also able to indulge in fantasy too. Let’s not forget that vampires have an inherent sex appeal. In books, at least modern fantasy and romance, they always seem to be chosen and turned at the peak of their lives. They are at their most virile.

Males are hard bodied and don’t have an ounce of flab on them. (Every woman’s dream, right?) They have piercing eyes that can reach into your very soul and mesmerize the pants right off of you. Once they’ve got you in their strong, capable arms, you just want to melt. Their strength represents power and protection (once you know they want more than just your blood. LoL).

They are the ultimate bad boy. And women, we cannot deny that somewhere deep down, there is a lingering desire for the danger and excitement they offer. That’s part of the fun of fantasy. We can put ourselves into the other characters shoes and have the bad boy for a time without the lasting negative effects.

Let’s not forget the teeth either. They are part of the sex appeal. They are not only phallic on a subconscious level; they represent the very real danger that makes you tingle with anticipation. Think about it? Where do vampires typically bite? The neck. It’s a known erogenous zone. Need I say more?

Vampires let us indulge in multiple fantasies all the safety of our homes via: books, movies, and TV.

So if you’d like to check out any of my work, including Vampire Bites stop by and read a sample or two. If you like what you see, all of my novels and novellas are available in every ebook format!

Just stopping by to say hi on your day of the tour! Nice post.

Escape by Fiction said...

This looks good. I love it when the female has the role of the supernatural being vs. the male. It creates a more intriguing dynamic, I think.

Good reading ~ Escape by Fiction :)
