I love writing in my genre. I get to create fabulous characters and make the laws of nature bow in submission. It’s an amazing way to spend your time even if you get peculiar looks from others when you tell them what it is you write.I’m getting off track. The point is paranormal romance is awesome. But it does mean you are embroiled from the start in that age old debate.
Werewolves or vampires. To howl or to bite?
This question existed long before Twilight somehow became the definition of the genre…I’ll make my position on that book quite clear. I am not team Edward or team Jacob. I am team confused. I literally forced myself to read book one and haven’t even looked at any of the others and that’s the way I like things. Getting distracted again. Sorry.
So in answer to the question I am a howler. I love my wolves and am not ashamed to say it! Why because I love the idea of a constant conflict between man and beast between reason and instinct. Sadly not everyone feels the same way that I do and the wolves are portrayed as slathering beasts unable to control themselves which is the exact opposite to how vampires are seen and that is why I write what I write. I like to feel that I’m playing my part in taking on the common perception with my books.
Wolves can be sexy too and I write to prove it.
That isn’t to say that I’ve never written about vampires. I have. I wrote Seared by Desire
and I love Lucian but at heart I am and always be a howler rather than a biter.
But now I put the question to you. To howl or to bite? Who has your support?
