New Potential Author Disease Noted. Treatment Being Researched.

This, of course, is in the vein of the “news” at the Onion. K. Greer has noted that there is a new disease that seems to be infecting bestselling authors who primarily write sexual brooding vampires. If you are an author with such a character or know of an author with such a character, you may want to pay close attention to the research on RHD (Rice-Hamilton Disorder).

    The day my favourite vampire author succumbs to RHD, I will cry. She doesn’t have a blog, which is promising, and I’m hoping she has a natural immunity to the disease.

    Greer’s RHD is too funny. Kat who is your favourite vampire author?

    I was trying to think of mine. I’m not a huge vampire fan so there has to be a lot of buzz in the blog world before I try a vampire book. Anne Rice books go unread to the UBS and I never did try LKH (although someday someone will write a hugely clever slash-and-burn review which will make the book irresistible).

    I probably most enjoy Kim Harrison’s series starting with “A Fistful of Charms”. Somehow she doesn’t appear to be a candidate for RHD.
