So, another writer friend of mine, David Lascelles, has been doing his usual Vampire Month, over at his blog, and I, several months ago, volunteered to do a guest post.

Life being what it is, I then got thrown a major deadline of “get it finished by the end of April” – which in itself is a good thing, I always write better when I know there’s someone who really wants to read it – but it did come crashing straight in the middle of my plans for other things.

So the guest post itself was done under severe time constraints, which may explain my immediate reversion to silliness – albeit with some serious points to make – but I think it turned out surprisingly well. You can find the whole post here, along with an interview with me, here.
