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

I shall continue to add on books to this list.
