|Author D.B. Reynolds|
I liked complicated men. They tend to be a lot more high maintenance, but they’re also a lot more intense, which means life with them is more passionate. And I like that. When it comes to writing my heroes, of course, I tend to go with what I like in real life, which means my vampires are dark and complicated, they’re heroic but also brutal and bloodthirsty.
|Rajmund by D.B. Reynolds|
Of course, because they’re vampires, they have to drink blood. My vampires embrace what they are, and revel in the taste of blood fresh from the vein, but they don’t roam the streets, killing at random, they have clubs and parties where willing donors line up to donate blood from the vein, in exchange for the sexual high of having a vamp tap in. They’re adamantly territorial, but they deal with that by having a rigid political structure which deals with their more violent urges and generally maintains the peace. They’re unapologetically vampire, but they’re smart enough to take advantage of modern society instead of fighting against it. And when it comes to vampire affairs, they don’t give a damn what humans think.
