Now I know there must be a term for this: human servants that are addicted to vampire blood. What are they called? I’d really not have to make up this as well since vampires aren’t exactly the focus of my book, and I know there is probably terminology that is already in use for this type of thing, but I couldn’t for the life of me find it. If any of my friendly vampire experts could pitch in on this, I’d definitely be appreciative. Brakkis, the (vicious) head of the werewolf pack is explaining the concept of werewolf human servants, and trying to compare it to vampiric human servants. I know this is a much more common idea, so yeah. Terminology is my bane at this point! Oh and Brakkis is discussing this while he’s toting a severed head on his belt all Predator style. See why I’m reluctant to make this YA-compatible?
In other news I got my new Facebook Author site up – yay! You can check it out over here, and I’d be ever-so-grateful if you’d drop me a Like. I’ll be posting links to my blog updates, publishing updates, cover announcements, etc. Maybe a few interesting news bits and hilarious cat photos as well. You never know.
Anyway, here’s the latest update on my novel! Slow but steady goes the turtle.

Poor Terry’s in shock, but at least he’s sensible enough not to piss off the guy wearing a body part. I like to think his survival instincts kicked in for him. I also discovered I have two separate characters with the same name – first and last. *facepalm* And on top of that I confuse two werewolves as being the mute werewolf lover of Rolph. I need to get my names straight – maybe when I finish up my word count tonight I’ll go back in and straighten out the details a little bit. Otherwise I’m going to be terribly confused come edit time.
*Edit: Now including my latest word counts for the night! Woot – day two of Nano and this novel is still alive and kicking. I’m pleased! And as an added bones, can I just say that every time I have blonde fixed to blond in Scrivener, that I think of this Fight Club scene?
