Catherine Peace: This Time Next Year

Please welcome author Catherine Peace to the Cafe!

It seems like everywhere you look, there’s a new vampire story to devour, and I’m fairly certain a certain series involving a family of sparkly bloodsuckers is to thank (or blame, depending on your opinion of vampire fiction) for that. You can’t really throw a stone without finding a different spin on an old mythology. There’s a certain allure about these creatures of the night. Oftentimes they’re sexy, beguiling, strong, powerful, beautiful, and they have a certain way of bewitching a reader that no other creature seems to possess.

I’ve had a massive love for these nocturnal favorites for a long time, and they’re one of my favorite topics to cover. However, it’s difficult retelling a myth that’s been in existence since around Persian civilization, and once the term “vampire” came into use around 1734, well…we’ve had vampire stories ever since. Sometimes, to put a fresh spin on a classic like this one, you have to take a trip down memory lane, and considering this subject has captured the imagination of multiple cultures over the centuries, there’s a treasure trove of folklore to tap into.

In order to differentiate This Time Next Year from the above-mentioned sparkly vampires, I had to dive into some older mythology and tweak a little of my own. Through the magic of Google, I discovered an interesting myth that actually led to the trope of vampires sleeping in coffins. In some cultures, when a person undergoes a vampire transformation, they enter into a comatose state mimicking death. Even though it’s truly a minor detail in my story, this is one that helps to set it apart.

Rather than being in a coffin, though, Moira wakes up in the very nice Castillo Hotel Albany with her lover and maker by her side. Not a bad way to go, right?
