Who is your favorite vampire? TV, movie, or novel; female or male; sensually delicious or savagely cruel?
I’ve researched a number of vampire polls to find out which vampires were most popular. Some listed vampires I’d never heard of; many listed the vampires of recent TV shows and movies. But the name that came up most was still Lestat.
Take a look at the long list of vampires I’ve gathered from recent polls. Tell me who your favorite is and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a free paperback of my own vampire novel, Beside the Darker Shore.
I’m eager to see which vampires have stolen our hearts in 2011.
