While I won’t out right confess which team I’m on, I decided to go to the authors and make them answer the question. Not only is it fun to see which side your favorite author has sided on—it might help to end the age old question. Well, maybe . . .
Here's the question I ask during every interview:
For you personally, not your characters, between a vampire love interest or a werewolf love interest which do you prefer? (What team are you on? Team Vampire or Team Werewolf.)
|Gustainis, Justin||"Oh, vampire – definitely. But not the sparkly kind. Someone once wrote that the vampire is the only one of the commonly known monsters that can actually have a conversation with you before it tears your throat out. And I’m a big believer in the fine art of conversation. Who knows – you might even talk him/her out of tearing your throat out."|
|Haines, Jess||"Personally? Give me the hot vampire. Yowza!"|
|London, Laurie||"Team Vampire all the way!"|
|McFall, Kathleen |
|"Team Vampire, no question. We love dogs, so let’s just get that out in the open, but we never feel even the slightest romantic attraction to them. When they hump our legs, for example, we tend to make them stop. Also, fleas — enough said. Vampires, while they may look at us, salivating, as prey, they know a thing or two about pleasure and desire. Creatures that revel in hedonistic abandon and live, errr, un-live, to take pleasure from others don’t mind sharing a bit as well. Our Vampires, in particular, trigger all sorts of passionate feelings in humans even as they drain their blood. That’s why so many humans are willing to let themselves be parasitized — blood loss is a small price to play for earth-rattling orgasms."|
Now for Team Werewolf! Grrrr!
