Okay I'm going to make a completely public post because I need as much help as I can get.
Other than Twilight, can anyone tell me what other vampire-related novels they have read (title/series and author) currently in the marketplace and give me an uber short rundown on what they're about (ie. Is it set in a school? Is it about a mortal hooking up with a vampire? Is it about a vampire teaming up with a detective/someone on the police force to solve a case? etc. etc. - you don't need to go into too much detail).
Basically I need to know what I'm competing against (ASAP at that because I need to whip up a letter mentioning the most prominent ones in it), and as I am quite aware of the huge selection but am a rather slow reader and tend to spend valuable time reading things I find appealing (which usually means I'm looking at things not specifically categorised in the paranormal romance section), I'm not sure if my opinion of what's out there is 100% correct.
So please - spam me with details of vampire-related books you know/have read & I'll be eternally grateful. Thanks!
