Contributor Appreciation Day!

I wanted to take a moment to thank all those who contribute articles and have posted guest spots at the VampChix blog since we entered the blogsphere last August.  This blog would not be possible without help from others.  I simply could not do it all by my little ole self.  Everyone who has sent a blog or stopped by to promote their book and chat about vampires is GREATLY appreciated.

I wanted to call attention to VampChix's regular contributors, and hope you will stop by their websites or blogs to show them some love.

Anna Dougherty posts movie quotes, reviews, and articles at VampChix.  She's also the Bite Club moderator.  How lucky did I get when I picked a person I didn't even know out of a crowd of regular readers (at the Riding With The Top Down blog where I blog with a group of romance writers) thinking she was probably someone who enjoyed vampires and would be interested in handling the creative position as book club moderator?  Very lucky!  Anna is amazing.  She runs Bite Club like a charm, and keeps the chats going all month, and comes up with awesome questions about the books.  She doesn't have a blog of her own, so do stop by Bite Club and say 'hey'!

Devon Downeysmith is our resident vampire nerd and writes for the Portland Vampire Examiner, and recently did a feature on Twilight.  We hope to see a lot more from her in the future!

Margaret L. Carter makes us think with her great articles on vampire myth and some of the great classic novels.  She's pubbed in non-fiction and fiction.  Stop by her website and check out some of her titles!

Moonlight is a regular contributor to, but VampChix is lucky to have her guest post here once a month.  Always fun and interesting vamp info from her.

Patricia Altner, former librarian, author, and blogger/owner of Patricia's Vampire Notes, provides us with the must-have list of vampire releases every month.  You should print up her posts and bring them along to the bookstore.  Please stop by her blog!

Roxanne Rhoads, author and blogger/owner of Fang-Tastic Books, reminds us that a little sparkle can be a good thing.  Please stop by her website and show her some love!

Shauna Kemp is the newest addition to the contributor list.  She's our Young Adult expert, and always let's us know which vampire series we should check out!  She also blogs on her own, and for the Fresno Books Examiner, so stop by and see what she has to say.

And also a few high-fives to contributors who are not regular but have provided us with some great articles:
SciFiGuy hosts a self-titled blog that keeps an eye on all the latest book releases in the paranormal realm.  It is a must-add to your blog crawl every morning.

Just a few days ago, Andy Boylan gave us access to his latest vampire essay.  His blog, Taliesin Meets The Vampire is not to be missed.

And don't forget Derek Tatum over at Mondo Vampire.  He's always got interesting articles posted about our favorite creature.
