Vampire Books or stories for Men, Guys or Boys

When writing my book, "The Birth of Vengeance," I always had in mind the main audience would be male. The book was written from a male point of view and the main character is male.

I have always been happy how many women have responded well to the book and like the strong character of Thorn, the female vampire. I always intend her character to be strong and independent and the opposite of the hapless females of other paranormal fantasies.

I have researched other vampire books for men in the bid to find my audience. There are a few of well known note, and I am sure there are plenty in the midst of the vampire catagories I haven't yet found.
I noticed they come listed under a number of keywords.
- vampire books for guys
- vampire books for men
- vampire stories for guys or men
- vampire books or stories for boys

There is also a list I created on Goodreads
https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/45401.Vampire_books_for_Men

Here is a list of the top books I have found. These are the ones that are most often mentioned.

1) The Birth of Vengeance (start with my own book. Why not)

2) Dracula (of course)

3) A Living Nightmare (Cirque Du Freak, #1) by

4) Let the Right One In by  

5) Vampire Chronicles: Interview with the Vampire, The Vampire Lestat, The Queen of the Damned

by

I shall continue to add on books to this list. 
Please feel free to contact me with your own recommendations.

The Truth - Vampire Formula #2

The 2nd book in the series is still onoging. I have decided to focus on it above all other ideas and put in extra time to focus on the quality of story I want to achieve.

The second book will really ring the changes in V's (Jonathan Harper) and Thorn's relationship.

The vampire universe will expand. Many of the hinted at questions and mysteries will begin to unravel in this book.

I wanted the first book, "The Birth of Vengeance" to set the scene and focus on the journey of Jonathan to Vengeance.
The second book focuses him living with his decisions and his search for the truth.


I am aiming for release at the end of the year, 2013. If you want any advance notice you can drop me an email.

In the meantime I have a question for you. What would you do if you became a vampire?
Would you run and hide, or embrace it and enjoy the power?

Vampire Formula #2

Vampire Formula #2 "The Truth"

I am in the process editing and layering the story. So far very happy with it. I think its going to be even better than the first book.

The theme of the book is the search for the Truth. Most of the unanswered questions in first book will get answered in this second book. I am introducing a range of new characters and expansion in the vampire world. I am expecting to publish late 2013 due to finishing off my 'Wrong Time, Wrong Place' series of books. Along with second book, I will release a free prequel set two years before V and Thorn meet.
