A few days ago, I tweeted literary agent Marisa A. Corvisiero about the chances of a vampire book being picked up, especially if the vamp is the villain/protagonist.
She tweeted me back a few hours ago saying:
This gives me some hope because Marisa has said in interviews that vampires are no longer acceptable, yet she said this. It also gives me hope because my vampires are different from YA paranormal romances. Its sort of like an anti-Twilight, though I didn't write it to go against the Twilight books.That can work. I'd say that there are limited places that will still look at vampire books and that they must be unique.
