Writers Workshop

Time again for Writers Workshop, courtesy of Mama Kat. I choose prompt 1 which is:-

1.) Who made you red hot this week?

Well I have been red hot most of the week, and I blush to admit that a good story has me all hot and bothered. As you may have read from a previous post, I am currently reading The Southern Vampire Mysteries and I am up to book 4.

The tv series Trueblood is based on the books and I have series 1 on dvd. Now you could easily say that I am obsessed as the written word has weaved its magic on me. Well that's a sign of a good story isn't it?

I love my vampire stories and my friends all know that I love scary movies with werewolves, vamps and zombies featured. I tried to get into Twilight, but it was just too clean and simple for me. Now this series I am reading could be described in single words, racy, edgy, sexy, hot, scary, thrilling, exciting, erotic, awesome (did I mention hot), hot, hot...

So thus I have been hot, bothered and turned on by the events in the story this week. It is set in places that I visited when I was in America - Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas so far, so I can identify and appreciate the references. (I know you are waiting for the sexy parts...)

But I won't go into detail, except to say that there is a bit of a love triangle happening between the female lead character and two vampires, one of which is Eric, played by Alexander Skarsgard who is my current obsession. I liked his character in the books before I saw the actor who plays him in the series and I would say that I am smitten.

So I am reading and reading and feeling like a teenager, and wondering if The Hubbster thinks he will get lucky tonight (as I have been reading passages from the book to him to which he comments (this is just soft porn). And hoping that Eric gets the girl, and wiping my brow..and feeling the warmth run through my body.. sorry gotta run and take a cold shower..

Well if your book is anything like True Blood then I can see the need for a cold shower... Season 1 has just started over here in the UK and it's SMOKING!

If you're a fan a steamy vampire stories than you HAVE to have read some Anne Rice right?? Cause if not you must go out and buy some immediately! Oooh Lestat... *swoon*

Enjoy that summer heat! x
