Halloween Sucks - Says Lily Drake Blog Hop


Yoohoo! Today marks the beginning of Lily Drake's - the MC from T. Michelle's Life & Death of Lily Drake - blog hop, and man, am I excited! A chance for me to gush about vampires and their awesomeness. And to celebrate, Inkspell is offering a giveaway for the book. The Rafflecopter can be found at the end of this post

Sooo, vampires in literature and television:

Ridiculously good-looking vamps with ridiculously nice hair and marvelous accents.

A few things they all have in common: They can get all fang-y when pissed, blood is a big part of their diet, can seduce humans to pieces and can move very fast.

My favourite vamps: Damon, Of course and John Mitchell from Being Human. (Not sure if you've watched the show, but it's AWESOME. Three roommates: A vampire (Mitchell), werewolf (George)  and a ghost(Annie) try to live a normal life. It's a balance between hilarious and horrific. Mitchell's accent - and hair. I'm obsessed with his hair - pushes his hotness to a whole new level. He is also a great actor.

I have a couple of favourite scenes from the show. Thought I'd share dialogue taken from Season 3,  when Annie (the Ghost) runs in screaming there is a dead woman chasing her...

George: "What have we got?"
Mitchell: "A drunk, dead woman. Shouting."
George: "That's not a ghost. I can smell her."
Mitchell: "What, from here?"
George: "Oh yeah. Even without the whole wolf thing."
Annie: "Well of course you can smell her. She's got a body! I'm sure I mentioned that."

For Lily Drake, slaying vampires is easy...Dating them is the hard part.

Lily Drake is your everyday hard-working single mom…until a gorgeous vampire shows up on her front door who she mistakenly assumes is her blind date for the evening. As one crazy scenario after another unfolds, Lily finds herself falling in love with two vampires, slaying the evil ones, and being prophesied as the savior of the entire undead race.
Deciding between pizza and Chinese take-out will no longer be one of the hard decisions facing Lily Drake once she is emerged into vampire society. Humanity or immortality? That doesn't hold a candle against this question - which of the two handsome vampire cousins?

The Life and Death of Lily Drake is not your typical vampire love story. It’s a tale about the humorous mistakes a woman makes simply trying to survive not only life, but the dating scene. How will Lily manage working full-time, taking care of her young son and fighting the undead at every turn?
Lily will have to figure it out, but who better to save the world than a mom?
