    Writing About Vampires

    Since I was 14 I've been writing about vampires. It's been six years now since I discovered how wonderful is to create a character. They grow up just like children, sometimes like very STUBBORN children, and I love them like if they were my kids ^^ Their story is about an...

    I have had this idea

    for a book for about a year or so. It's about a future apocalyptic event (no zombies,) and at least partly about mankind's reaction to the news of the event. The event will be something like an asteroid on the way to earth, but we have 50 - 75 years, or more, to prepare for it.
