If you’ve read The Vampire Relationship Guide, Volume 1: Meeting and Mating (and if you haven’t, why the heck not??), then you know that there are many different resources that Josie can use to find vampire dating advice including VampLure magazine. As I was creating the book, I knew that I wanted to have a companion entertainment site for it, and that site was VampLure.com. But writing a vampire dating advice magazine while releasing a book and embarking on a virtual book tour isn’t exactly easy, so it’s taken a while.
I’m happy to announce that I finally finished the first edition of VampLure online magazine last night! To get you ready for the experience, let’s take a look at the magazine’s About page:
VampLure was designed as a trashy women’s magazine specifically for those ladies who want to have relationships with vampires. But beware roving feminists; VampLure is not an empowering sexual advice rag. It is modeled after the magazines of the 40′s and 50′s—those that taught women how to please and keep their men.
Why take such an anti-modern approach? Because if vampires did exist, they would have ‘enjoyed’ centuries of gender-based dominance, and a few decades of empowered women probably wouldn’t change their ways.
Remember, VampLure is supposed to be fun—it’s not meant to be a statement or advice site. It’s satire.
Every month, beginning in July, I’ll have a whole new set of articles, letters, horoscopes and Dear Vampy columns for you to read and enjoy. And if you want to be part of the fun, send in a letter to the editor or a question for Vampy to answer! Just send them over to firstname.lastname@example.org.
