Faeries and vampires win!




Faeries and vampires took the lead in the final day of the poll about readers' favorite supernatural characters, with 7 votes each. Closely behind them were dragons, witches and ghosts, in a three-way tie with 5 votes each. The werewolves had only four, and there was one vote for a supernatural creature I neglected to put on the ballot. I'd love to know what it was!

In the end, of course, the characters are less important to me than the writer's skill - there are certain writers I'd read even if their characters were dust bunnies or frying pans.

Stay tuned for the next poll (as soon as I think one up). And thanks to all who voted!

  1. Hey Darla, The other vote was me. I was thinking about Elves and Shapeshifters when I voted.

    actually responding to the blog below about the woman, I kinda had to laugh, man the lengths people will go to for censorship. Sad.

  3. My bad, Nicola - I'll keep those in mind for next time!

    VA Gal - absolutely. And it inevitably results in more publicity for the book, and more readers for the book. Even so, I still find it irritating!

    And Ladytink - thanks!

  5. Can he swing from a web?
    No he can't, he's a pig!

    I had that song stuck in my head the other day, much to the amusement of everyone at work. How could I have forgotten the talented SpiderPig?

  7. Thanks, Stephanie. And that's funny about your son singing the song - does it get stuck in your head the way it does in mine? It was driving me crazy the other day. Although, now that I think about it, it wasn't quite as bad as when I had the F.U.N. song from SpongeBob stuck in my head. It was stuck in everyone else's head at work by the time I left, heh heh.
