Here's a video clip about the upcoming TV series.

The May 25 issue of Publishers Weekly has an article entitled When Love Is Strange: Romance Continues Its Affair with the Supernatural. Many current paranormal romance and urban fantasy authors are metioned, but the article begins by featuring Sherrilyn Kenyon and her works.

Congratulations to Charlaine Harris! Read the following from the New York Times

Vampire-Loving Barmaid Hits Jackpot for Charlaine Harris.
New york times article - "had just heard that the latest book in the series, “Dead and Gone,” would make its debut on the New York Times hardcover fiction best-seller list this Sunday in the No. 1 spot. It was a first for Ms. Harris, who has published 26 novels in nearly three decades and sold the original book in the Sookie series, “Dead Until Dark,” for just $5,000 nine years ago..."

Remember season 2 of HBO's True Blood (based on the Sookie books) begins June 14.

HorrorBlips presents the Best Blood Suckers

Vampires on the big screen tend to have three distinct personalities: Scary, Sexy, or Funny. We asked several horror bloggers who specialize in vampires to call out their favorite characters, actors and fims in each category. See if you agree. If not, add your own selections and keep the immortals memories alive."

[I'm one of the lucky bloggers that got to express an opinion.]

From Vampires, werewolves, ghosts:
Being Human debuts on BBC America

"Being Human
—about the secret lives of three twenty-somethings as a werewolf, a vampire and a ghost—debuts on BBC America on July 25 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.... Read more

Here's something a bit different Vampires of Potts Point. Blogger Stephen Blackwell calls it "a vampire fiction blog containing gradually interweaving storylines - a kind of fiction experiment - but also consisting of easily read posts for instant gratification (at least that is the plan)." It's certainly worth time to take a look.
