Has anyone here read the book?

Re: Vampire Apocalypse Movie Coming

Vampire Apocalypse was only released from genre US/UK publishers KHP Industries under their Black Death Books imprint last September - so it's still a relatively new book.  Since it's release VA has been in the top 100 best selling horror books on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.  It was also one of 58 horror novels nominated in the Preditors and Editors Readers Poll for 2006.....and, as above.......the film/tv rights have already been optioned. so I'm pretty pleased with how its doing so far.....

Vampire Apocalypse is available from all the major on lin book sellers (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Shocklines etc.  Sample chapters and a link to buy from these retailers can be found at my website www.derekgunn.com.

Enjoy!

The producer has an impressive bio and recently executive produced The 8the Plague,which won best film and best cinematography awards - so It should be in good hands!

Re: Vampire Apocalypse Movie Coming

Just one question Mr. Gunn about your vampires and you opinion about them.

In your book do your vamps have hte Lost Boys/Buffy look or are they just pale creatures?

And which one look to a vamp do you prefer?

Re: Vampire Apocalypse Movie Coming

In my book I strip away the modern sexy look that vampires have been portrayed recently. So they are more pale creatures I suppose. However, they are dead. I bring them back to basics. They have changed at a DNA level - more of that in the book.

In essence they are cruel bloodthirsty animals who feed on humans and use the energy crisis to spread over the world. They have no humanity and no pity - so there'l be no Angel types here.

Then, of course, there's the serum - but that would be telling you too much.

Hope you enjoy it.
