Not Everyone Takes Inspiration From Twilight.

Why does everyone that reviews a vampire book have to mention Twilight? Just because a book has vampires and werewolves in it does not mean that it is a Twilight rip-off. Many authors wrote about vampires long before Twilight, and they will continue to write about vampires long after Twilight is gone. I wish people would stop saying I copied Twilight just because my book has vampires and werewolves in it. My vampires are far different from hers—they have fangs, the sunlight gives them headaches if they haven’t fed, they feed on humans, they aren’t invincible, and they die by being staked through the freaking heart—I can’t think of a way to make my vampires more different than Stephenie Meyer’s vampires. Seriously, they’re not even close. So for someone to tell me that I copied Twilight just because I have vampires and werewolves in my book really hurts. It makes me feel like my writing can’t stand on its own, and that people only like my book because they for some reason think it’s a Twilight rip-off. The only way a book can be a Twilight rip-off is if the book features vampires that sparkle in the sunlight, feast on animals, have special powers, and are invincible. Since my vampires are nothing like that, I have to be honest and say I don’t see what people are talking about. Not everyone takes inspiration from Twilight.

Consumed By War, the third and final book in my Wars trilogy, has been published and is available online at http://www.smashwords.com. Alanna and her family are preparing for the fight of their lives. They’ve been given a short reprieve from danger while Roger prepares to finally carry out his plans for revenge. While Alanna prepares to give birth, war threatens them from all sides. Elias plans to get his revenge against Ray for the death of his mate many years ago, Roger wants to destroy all traces of Charlotte’s memory by destroying Alanna and her family, and they’re waiting for news from the Council. Mixed up in all of this is Ilene, whose dwindling hold on her sanity makes her a dangerous opponent who will stop at nothing to get what she wants. By Alanna’s side is Quinten, who is finally coming to terms with his approaching fatherhood, and Alanna’s own father, who is desperate to save not only his children, but his grandchildren as well…
