Thursday Thirteen - 170 - 13 Things You'd Find in Peredur's World

Today's Thursday Thirteen is a collection of images that are foremost in my mind as I work on my vampire work in progress. This story follows a Dark Age Welsh warrior who becomes a vampire.


1 - Round hut













2 - Sword




3 - Cloak brooch










4 - Spear

















5 - Pewter ring








6 - Vampires













7 - Caverns











8 - Blood












9 - An angel
















10 - Initiation tree











11 - Spells
















12 - Silver chains















13 - Bone amulet







Ann Pino says I like that round hut.

Adelle Laudan says Great idea. I just might steal it. Sounds like the makings of a great book.

Travis Cody says I'm always curious about the vampire culture a writer chooses to utilize. Would you say your vampires are more in the Ann Rice culture, Bram Stoker culture, or some combined varietal?

You may have introduced this work in the past and answered this question, so forgive me for asking again. I'm always curious about the vampire culture a writer chooses to utilize.

Would you say your vampires are more in the Ann Rice culture, Bram Stoker culture, or some combined varietal?

Travis - This is an extremely hard question to answer! My husband says, "It's its own vintage."

I would say the culture perhaps most closely resembles the one in the Underworld film series. The regular vampires in my culture have a lord who rules them.

My main character belongs to a group somewhat like the Talamasca from Ann Rice's The Witching Hour.
