Vampires, Monsters & Shapeshifters, oh my!–Allie Harrison Back to Blog

I love how vampires, monsters, & shapeshifters are getting such great reviews these days!  Because I absolutely love to write them.  I love how I can make my vampires be any way I want from adapting to sunlight, not not needing blood–but other things–to survive, to experiencing love and desire, which is what I did in my latest work, NO FEAR, which is now available through ImaJinn Books.  I hope everyone likes my Chief of Police James Winchester as much as I did.


Another great thing is that the love for vampires is really making the rounds everywhere, too.  This past Friday night, I was working a church fish fry when someone commented, “Hey, did you guys all know Allie’s vampire book is out and it’s great.  I read it in 3 days!” (which made me feel really great).  But the conversation soon turned to vampires, moving from, “I read the latest Sukie Stackhouse book and loved that, too!”  And, “I love the HBO series!”  Then, “I still miss that New Moon show that used to be on Fridays.”  The point is, vampires are out there and fans are loving them.  And I’m right in there with all the other fans, continuing to write vampires and monsters everyone can love.  I’m just glad I finally managed to get my SyFy channel back!

    Hello and welcome. I love all the vampires are much differant than years ago. They can fall in love or have emotions. Makes them seem more real. Brings you into the story more. I like when they are also funny sometimes.

    I have a custom made bookcase that’s 96 inches wide and the top two shelves are nothing but vampire books. :-)

    I LOVE vampires and I try to get the DVD’s of my fav series and films so I can watch them in English. I always have to watch them in German first…hehe!!!

    in Germany

  6. Edie says:

    What’s really great about this is that so many of the vampire books are romances. So maybe these readers seduced into the vampire culture by Sookie and the others will expand into other subgenres. Next were-creatures. After that maybe even just people romances. It’s all good!

  7. Pamk says:

    congrats on your new release. Sounds great. and I am so glad that there are more vampire books.

    Hi Allie! Thanks for posting today. Love any kind of paranormal books but most definately vamps & shifters. Congrats on your release, I would love to read it. By the way, I love me some SYFY channel too! Have a great rest of the weekend.

  9. Michele says:

    Hi Allie!! Your release sounds like something right up my alley, adding you to my TBR list 😀

  10. Allie Harrison says:

    Hi everyone! Thank you to everyone who replied. And you’re welcome. Thank you for allowing me to share. I am so glad to see so many people LOVE vampires! No, I’m not in Twitter–YET. Hope to be soon. Are the DVD’s in German a little funny? I only ask because years ago I was forced to watch the Lone Ranger in German and thought it was very funny how Tonto put up his hand and said, “Wie gates!” for “How?” I think I spelled gates wrong, so I’m sorry, and hope I didn’t offend anyone. It’s been a long time since I had to write in German when I studied it. I hope everyone enjoys James and Emma. I certainly enjoyed writing them. Coming soon also from ImaJinn Books is HIDE & SEEK!

  12. Diane Sadler says:

    I love all paranormals such as vampires, werewolves, shifters, monsters and witches. I also enjoy all the new shows such as True Blood, Vampire Diaries and I wish Moonlight was still on. I won’t even count how many books I have with paranormal stories.

  13. Melissa says:

    I love ALL paranormals, and I’m thrilled they’ve caught on so well, so we keep getting MORE!!

  14. Allie Harrison says:

    Thanks for having me, Cynthia. This was fun! Have a happy and safe Halloween, everyone!

  15. Allie Harrison says:

    Just to let everyone know–anyone who wishes to purchase my book NO FEAR can get it ordering through Barnes & Noble at the store, B&,, or directly from I know there was some confusion in the past. It is NOT available at Borders. Thank you.

  16. Karin says:

    I really enjoy all the paranormal creatures for the exact reasons you listed, Allie. Each author puts their own spin on the creatures and it makes them that much more interesting.

  17. Brandy says:

    The popularity of vampires has branched out and for that I am thankful. It sure makes for good reading!

  18. stacey smith says:

    you did not have your syfy channel for awhile that’s terrible that’s my fav channel.
    well I’m glad you got it back.

  19. Nancy Gilliland says:

    Vampires are all purpose monsters. They can be good guys, bad guys, gorgeous, hideous-there are vamps fr any taste. I love them because there are just so many to choose from, and if you don’t like this one, another will be along soon.

  20. Donna S says:

    I totally agree with you. Its great. I love that they are more mainstream and people are talking about them. You can now admit yes I read vampire books and yes I love them.

    No Fear sounds great!!

  21. Minna says:

    I keep hearing so much about True Blood, that I hope we’ll soon see it here in Finland, too.

  22. Deidre says:

    I have and always will love vampires. They will never get old to me.


  23. CatsMeow says:

    …and the new Vampire Diaries’ series that’s on the CW. I had to laugh, my 26-year-old daughter told me she used to read them when she was in Jr High. I feel so old.

  24. Hi I have been reading your blog for the past two weeks and it is interesting, do you have a RSS feed?
