THE BLOOD GOSPEL is the a new vampire novel written by James Rollins and Rebecca Cantrell. Don’t adjust your eyes. They wrote about vampires on purpose. You know, the subject most literary agents say is too saturated to publish. THE BLOOD GOSPEL deals with religious undertones and vampires, just like EDEN. When I see a high-profile release like this, it fans my fire of hope for EDEN. Apparently readers aren’t as tired of vampires as the publishing industry would have us believe.
I’ll be picking up my copy on Thursday. You may want to give it a read too. I’ll post the book trailer below.
Here’s a great article by Paul “Goat” Allen, titled Put a Stake In It! Why Was 2012 Such a Dreadful Year for Vampire Fiction? It’s an article he wrote for a Barnes and Noble blog which goes into the current state of vampire fiction and where he thinks it’s headed. It really is a fascinating read, especially if you write about vampires. Paul doesn’t think the market for vampire fiction is dead. He believes it will rise again, and soon. He also mentions THE BLOOD GOSPEL as a book to look out for in 2013. Bring on the vampires!
