Shane: Hey everyone, Shane McAllister here. I do the 90s grunge/indie/alternative show on WVMP, the Lifeblood of Rock ‘n’ Roll [link: http://www.wvmpradio.com]. Thanks to Amber for inviting me to talk about what it means to be a vampire.

Regina: It’s totally righteous being a vampire. Totally. *lights cigarette*

Shane: Oh. Um, this is Regina, who apparently tagged along for the interview. She does the 80s punk rock/goth hour, Drastic Plastic. [link: http://www.wvmpradio.com/page.cfm/dj-s/regina ]

Regina: I made you what you are, babe. Literally. I came because I knew you’d tell people that it sucks to be a vampire. They need to hear both sides.

Shane: You’re just afraid I’d tell everyone how you made me.

Regina: If you ever tell a soul, I will kill you. Permanently, this time.

(Edited by Shane later to add: my “turning tale” of how I became a vampire can be found on Jeri’s website. The story’s called “Last Request.” [link: http://jerismithready.com/books/wicked-game/last-request/  Regina hasn’t written hers yet.)

  • OK, let’s get started. What is your Creature?

Regina: We are vampires, glorious immortal beasts! *stretches arms to the sky, waving black-lacquered nails*

Shane: Sure. Whatever.

Regina: “Whatever,” he says. Did you know that’s the name of his radio show? “Whatever.” [link: http://www.wvmpradio.com/page.cfm/dj-s/shane] So Generation X of him, pretend he cares about nothing.

Shane: *adjusts sleeves of flannel shirt* I’m not Generation X. I hate labels.

Regina: As does every member of Generation X.

Shane (to Amber): See, each of us is “stuck in time” in the era we were turned, so we tend to wear the clothes and speak the slang we did when we were alive. It keeps us comfortable and semi-sane. But we have to fight to keep from becoming walking clichés.

Regina: Speak for yourself, hoser.

Shane: Regina is from the 80s, and Canadian. I bet you can’t tell.

  • Is your creature from a specific part of the world?

Regina: We are everywhere! Cold and heat don’t bother us, so we can live where the weather is totally gnarly. My favourite city is London. I miss it horribly. It’s too sunny where we live now.

Shane: Not that weather matters. Rain or shine, we can’t be outside or even in a room with a window when the sun is up. We’re not like Angel or the Twilight vamps who only have to avoid direct sunlight.

Regina: I don’t know who those people are. Anyway, the rich vamps—which we are not—move north during the winter to take advantage of the really long nights.

Shane: But traveling is hard, because of the sun. There’s a network of vampire-friendly hotels and motels, though, where you can either sleep in a basement room with blackout curtains, or at least in the bathtub and not be disturbed by the housekeepers. Kind of like pet-friendly hotels, but for vampires.

  • Physical Description?

Regina: GORGEOUS!

Shane: Yeah, I won’t deny that. Even if you’re a homely human, like I was, becoming a vampire makes you hot.

Regina: I was pretty hot to begin with.

Shane: But seriously, we have to drink human blood and the best way to get it is voluntarily.

Regina: Yeah, big piles of blood-free corpses tend to attract attention, which is the last thing we want.

Shane: Also, killing is wrong.

Regina: Uh-huh, whatever. Anyway, seduction is our main weapon. It’s how we attract willing donors, who hopefully become regulars.

  • What book or series does this creature appear in?

Shane: We’re in the WVMP RADIO series by Jeri Smith-Ready. Sometimes it’s called the Ciara Griffin series, after my girlfriend.

Regina: Is that her name?

Shane: The books are, in chronological order, WICKED GAME, BAD TO THE BONE, BRING ON THE NIGHT, the novella “Let It Bleed,” and last but not least, LUST FOR LIFE, which just came out today.

Regina: I’m so proud of you for not rearranging them into alphabetical order.

Shane: As long as they’re in some kind of order, that’s all that matters.

Wait, what?

Regina: Vampires are kind of OCD.

Shane: Not “kind of.”

Regina: See, we kind of bug out when the world keeps changing around us while we stay the same. So finding something we can control helps us stay sane.

Shane: Regina’s OCD thing is counting. But if you make a Sesame Street crack, I can’t stop her from killing you.

Regina: Shane’s thing is sorting. He teaches a community-college class on how to load a dishwasher.

Shane: I do not. They turned down my proposal.

  • What is the history of this creature? how where they created, where do they come from?

Regina: Vampires have always been. We are eternal. We have walked this earth since the dawn of history, and we shall feed off the last vestiges of humanity as it destroys itself.

Shane: What she means is, we have no clue.

  • What are their strengths?

Regina: Ooh, I’ll show you! Do you mind if I throw you across the room with my pinky finger?

Shane: That’s not very courteous.

Regina: Hey, I asked her permission. That is courteous.

Shane (to Amber): Regina’s right—we’re physically strong and get stronger as we age. Also, older vampires don’t have to drink as often. For instance, I’ve been a vampire since 1995 and need blood a couple times a week. But our oldest vampire DJ, Monroe, was turned in [1940], and he only needs to drink maybe once every six weeks or so

Regina: It’s good to be old.

Shane: In some ways. We also have great senses of smell, vision, and hearing, and have lightning-fast reflexes and running speed. Your basic predator skill set.

Regina: And we’re excellent dancers.

Shane: Again, for the seduction factor.

  • What are their weaknesses?

Shane: This is where the bad side of aging comes in. The older we get, the crazier we get. It’s called “fading.” We lose touch with reality and get more violent around humans. Eventually we either kill ourselves or end up in a Control “nursing home.”

Regina: It’s not just age, though. Some vampires can stay sane when they’re really old, like Monroe. But a lot of vampires start off crazy, because they were bonkers when they were human. Those tend to flip out within a few decades.

*moment of silence*

Shane: I should explain the Control. That’s the International Agency for the Control and Management of Undead Corporeal Entities.

Regina: They’re a bunch of jackbooted thugs.

Shane: No, they’re not. Most of them.

Regina: I didn’t say they weren’t useful jackbooted thugs. They did save my life more than once.

  • How long can vampires live?

Shane: Technically, we’re immortal, so under the right conditions, we could live forever. But I’ve never met a hundred-year-old vampire who wasn’t completely batshit. I wouldn’t want to live like that.

Regina: It’s awesome to stay young-looking for all that time, though. We only get old on the inside.

Shane: But most vampires either starve to death or accidentally burn up in the sun within the first few years. It’s a dangerous existence, so you have to be careful.

Regina: And most vampires suck at being careful.

What do they need to survive?

Shane: Blood.

Regina: And music.

Shane: Blood and music. Or maybe that’s just us.

  • Are they made or born?

Shane: We’re made. A vampire drains a human near the point of death, then feeds them his or her own blood, and they come back to life. As Buffy says, “it’s a whole sucking thing.”

Regina: Who?

Shane: A show that’s after your time. After my time, too, but Ciara is bringing me up to speed on the pop culture of the last fifteen years.

Regina (ignores him, speaks to Amber): Technically we’re undead, not dead. We have heartbeats, we breathe, we even use the washroom.

Shane: That’s Canadian for “bathroom.” We can eat food if we need to, to blend in with humans, but we can’t taste it. The only liquids we can taste are the ones with caffeine or alcohol.

Regina: Thank God for chemicals.

  • Do you like being what you are?

Shane: It took me years to accept what I’d become. At the beginning, I had to be put on suicide watch. But that was more about not wanting to exist at all than about being a vampire. I’ve worked through my issues—most of them—and now I embrace what I am. I’ve found a way to be an undead predator that’s consistent with my ideals.

Regina: I LOVE IT. Period.

Shane: And that’s a good last word. Thanks again for having us, Amber. And hey, Jeri is giving away a signed, personalized copy of any book in the WVMP RADIO series to one randomly drawn commenter. All you have to do is ask me or Regina a question in the comments below. Open to international entries, obviously, since Regina is international herself.

Regina: I like this interview thing. I’m going to do more of them, since I’m so good at it.

WVMP RADIO SERIES:

Late-night radio you can sink your teeth into

Recovering con artist Ciara Griffin is trying to live the straight life, even if it means finding a (shudder!) real job. She takes an internship at a local radio station, whose late-night time-warp format features 1940s blues, 60s psychedelia, 80s Goth, and more, all with an uncannily authentic flair. Ciara soon discovers how the DJs maintain their cred: they’re vampires, stuck forever in the eras in which they were turned.
Ciara’s first instinct, as always, is to cut and run. But communications giant Skywave wants to buy WMMP and turn it into just another hit-playing clone. Without the station—and the link it provides to their original Life Times—the vampires would “fade,” becoming little more than mindless ghosts of the past. Suddenly a routine corporate takeover becomes a matter of life and un-death.
To boost ratings and save the lives of her strange new friends, Ciara re-brands the station as “WVMP, the Lifeblood of Rock ’n’ Roll.” In the ultimate con, she hides the DJs’ vampire nature in plain sight, disguising the bloody truth as a marketing gimmick. WVMP becomes the hottest thing around—next to Ciara’s complicated affair with grunge vamp Shane McAllister. But the “gimmick” enrages a posse of ancient and powerful vampires who aren’t so eager to be brought into the light. Soon the stakes are higher—and the perils graver—than any con game Ciara’s ever played…

Turn On. Tune In. Drop Dead.
If you’re just joining us, welcome to radio station WVMP, “The Lifeblood of Rock ’n’ Roll.” Con-artist-turned-station-owner Ciara Griffin manages an on-air staff of off-the-wall DJs—including her new boyfriend Shane McAllister—who really sink their teeth into the music of their ‘Life Time” (the era in which they became vampires). It’s Ciara’s job to keep the undead rocking, the ratings rolling, and the fan base alive—without missing a beat.
For Halloween, WVMP is throwing a bash sure to raise the dead. They’ve got cool tunes, hot costumes, killer cocktails—what could go wrong? Well, for starters, a religious firebrand ranting against the evils of the occult preempts the station’s midnight broadcast. Then, when Ciara tracks down the illegal transmission, the broadcast tower is guarded by what appears to be…a canine vampire? And behind it all is a group of self-righteous radicals who think vampires suck (and are willing to stake their lives on it).
Now Ciara must protect the station while struggling with her own murky relationship issues, her best friend’s unlikely romance with a fledgling vampire, and the nature of her mysterious anti-holy powers. To make it to New Year’s in one piece, she’ll need to learn a few new tricks.…

What's Blood Got to Do With It?
Recovering con artist Ciara Griffin seems to finally have it all. A steady job at WVMP, the Lifeblood of Rock 'n' Roll. A loving relationship with the idiosyncratic but eternally hot DJ Shane McAllister. A vampire dog who never needs shots or a pooper-scooper. And after nine years, it looks as if she might actually finish her bachelor's degree!
But fate has other plans for Ciara. First she must fulfill her Faustian bargain with the Control, the paranormal paramilitary agency that does its best to keep vampires in line. Turns out the Control wants her for something other than her (nonexistent) ability to kick undead ass. Her anti-holy blood, perhaps?
Ciara's suspicions are confirmed when she's assigned to a special-ops division known as the Immanence Corps, run by the Control's oldest vampire and filled with humans who claim to have special powers. To a confirmed skeptic like Ciara, it sounds like a freak fest. But when a mysterious, fatal virus spreads through Sherwood—and corpses begin to rise from their graves—Ciara will not only get a crash course in zombie-killing, but will be forced to put her faith, and her life itself, in the hands of magic.

BLOOD IS THICKER THAN SLAUGHTER

Con artist-turned-radio-station-manager Ciara Griffin hopes to settle into a normal un-life as a fledgling vampire, with the help of her immortally hot fiancé, grunge DJ Shane McAllister. But she has bigger problems than finding a sane blood donor and a new home for those boxes of mac ’n’ cheese. Ciara’s best friend mourns her like she’s dead instead of undead, and her own maker clearly wishes she’d never been born (again). Worst of all, the WVMP crew calls a Code Black: hippie vampire DJ Jim has murdered a pair of humans—humans who share Ciara’s true last name.
That’s when trouble rolls out the red carpet, straight into Ciara’s life. At Shane’s first live concert, Ciara finds herself face to face with her Irish Traveller cousins, a not-so-welcome family reunion that might hold the key to Ciara’s anti-holy blood. Jim’s spiral into madness makes Ciara an unwilling prize in his deadly feud with Shane. As Ciara clings to what’s left of her humanity, she’ll need her new vampire strength—and old con artist cunning—now more than ever.

Everyone's Out for Blood—Hers
Ciara’s con-artist parents taught her three keys to survival: keep low, keep quiet, and most of all, keep moving. But managing WVMP, the Lifeblood of Rock ’n’ Roll—not to mention becoming a vampire herself—has kept her in one place long enough to fall madly in love, adopt an undead dog...
. . . and make more enemies than she can shake a stake at.
A psychotic DJ, a wanna-be necromancer, and a posse of vengeful hippies would all love to see Ciara get her day in the sun—literally. To protect Ciara, her fiancé, Shane, has traded his flannel shirt and guitar for a flak jacket and crossbow. If she survives to walk down the aisle, will she recognize the man waiting at the altar?
In this final chapter of the award-winning WVMP RADIO series, Ciara must decide who to trust, who to love—and who to kill.

  6. From Regina:

    Thanks to everyone for stopping by and letting me grace you with my presence!

    Cristina: I became a vampire in London in 1987, then a while later managed to get back to North America on a ship. It's a lot harder to pull that off now than it used to be, so I don't know if I'll ever return to London. *sighs* Stupid [censored] terrorists.

    Joy: Good question! Sex is both better and more complicated, especially for a chick. We can't do it with human guys without endangering their lives because our [censored] would literally break off their [censored]. It's TOTALLY not fair, because male vampires can [censored] human women all they want.

    Lily B: Special powers? You mean like telepathy or some [censored] like that?

    Oh wait--Noah just reminded me that I have excellent computational skills. I can also do your numerology profile in, like, five seconds. Also, I can snap your neck with my pinky fingers. Special enough for you?

  8. From Shane:

    PM350: Drugs do work on us, but we need a lot more of them to be affected than a human does. And yeah, if a human is drunk or high it can affect us. As a matter of fact, there's an underground market for that kind of blood...which would be a great plot for a spinoff mystery series...wait, no--Ciara would kill me if I tried to come out of retirement.

    Judy: Thanks, we had a good time too. Glad you could stop by. :)
    Erin: My favorite development is probably texting. It took me a while to get the hang of it (or even to see the point of it), but Ciara showed me the light. In BRING ON THE NIGHT texting actually saves our lives. So when old people complain about young people texting all the time it makes me sigh heavily. They don't see that it can sometimes be the most efficient means of communication. Then again, maybe I just feel that way because like most guys, I hate talking on the phone.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Q for either of you: So, do you actually sleep? Do you guys NEED sleep or just do it because you are used to? If yes, can you go without sleep for a long time?

    Thanks Jeri for the awesome giveaway, fingers crossed :)

  17. absolutely love the interview. it's very entertaining!

    my question, what's your favorite drinks? both from the cafein range and alcohol range.

    ReplyDelete
  18. From Shane again:

    Ana Lucia: I guess we don't physically need sleep the way live humans do, but it's good for our mental health to shut off our brains. Most of us sleep during the day, but more for convenience sake than anything. (Jeri's editor kept asking her during every book why we didn't pass out at sunrise--she was getting it mixed up with another series she edited, the Maker's Song by Adrian Phoenix.)

    SandyG265: It's not a movie, but Ciara had me watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, and I loved it. Obviously their vampires are a bit different (I envy Angel being able to outside during the day as long as he stays in the shadows), but the writing is fantastic. We also watched the first Twilight movie, and were not fans.

    Then there was that Swedish movie about the kid vampires, Let the Right One In. I wanted to love it, but thought it was boring and kinda pretentious. I'm definitely in the minority on that one, so go ahead and stone me now.

    ReplyDelete
  19. From Regina:

    Shane: You didn't love Let the Right One In? It was GENIUS, and I don't say that very often about anything made after 1988 or so.

    Amygdalia asked: When do we get to hear your turning story?

    My what?

    Zita asked: What part of Canada are you from, Regina?

    I'm from Saskatchewan. As I was temperamentally unfit to take over my family's wheat farm, I moved to London (England, not Ontario) the day I turned 18.

    And what kind of chemicals do you like best?

    I assume you're referring to my answer about caffeine and alcohol. So I will say nicotine.

    Poochylover asked: Do you find life more confusing because you're Canadian than you think you would if you had been American?

    What I find confusing is this question.

    ReplyDelete
  20. From Shane:

    Poochylover asked: What are the basic skills a vampire needs to survive their first few years and not go insane as they age?

    It's really important to have a good maker, someone who'll take care of you and show you the ropes. (I was lucky to have Regina.) It's almost impossible to learn these skills on your own--like how to drink from a human without hurting them, how to space your feedings so you don't get crazy hungry all of a sudden to the point where it impairs your judgment, etc.

    That's why most vampires live in groups, so we can all look out for each other. So it's important to be the kind of person who can accept and give help. If you're too independent or have too much pride, you tend to think you can do it all on your own. You can't. It's best to get over that delusion as soon as possible and move on.

    Barbara E asked: I'm curious as to why you can taste liquids with caffeine or alcohol and not anything else. How about blood, can you taste that?

    Hmm, I don't really know the science behind it. But an example is, we can taste coffee, but not the milk or sugar we put in it, because those are foods. Or a mixed drink like a Cosmo will just taste like vodka because the fruit juice is a food. The liquid has to be processed with caffeine or alcohol for us to taste it.

    Blood, though, definitely has a taste. You can't even imagine how good it is. *daydreams*

    Gaby Pendragon asked: if you could turn a musician into a vampire who would it be?

    This question was for both of us. *confers with Regina* Wow, we have the same answer: David Bowie.

    ReplyDelete
  21. From Regina:

    Yes, David Bowie! I will cry so hard when he dies. It should never happen. And he made a spectacular vampire in THE HUNGER, one of my favourite movies. Hmm, I need to watch that again soon.

    Mary Preston asked: where do you get your clothing from? Tailor made - specialized?

    Vintage clothing shops or goth/punk shops. Not Hot Topic, though. That place should be burned to the ground. Shane has always gotten most of his clothes from thrift stores. It's a grunge thing, apparently.

    Sienny asked: what's your favorite drinks? both from the cafein range and alcohol range.

    English Breakfast tea, extra strong (two bags to a cup, usually). Favourite drink is usually Bass Ale, though it's not what it used to be.

  22. What a great post! I hadn't heard of this series before but will definitely be reading it soon. My question since you like music. What's your favorite song?

  27. Thanks for all the great questions, everyone!

    From Shane:

    Texas Book Lover: My favorite song changes from time to time, but it's always a Nirvana song. Right now it's "About a Girl." Actually, it's been that song ever since I met Ciara five and a half years ago.

    Wendy (and Penni): Pancakes. Definitely pancakes. With lots of syrup and butter. *daydreams*

  28. From Regina:

    Melissa: My favorite number is 6. My first name has 3 vowels and 3 consonants, so six letters, and numerologically they add up to 36, which is 6 squared.

    Wendy and Penni: If I could taste anything now, it would be Nanaimo bars.

  29. Hey guys. got some great banter going down here.
    so Shane. you're "stuck" in the 90's but reading your story that decade kind of sucked for you. so my question is do you miss the 90's or are you glad that they are well and truly behind you?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Great interview, I enjoyed reading it very much.
    My Question is to Regina: you love being a seductive vampire, and you say you stick to your own time period mostly, so not to go insane. Don't you keep up with the latest sexy fashions either?

    ReplyDelete
  31. I loooved this interview!!

    Q for both: Is it true that vampires can't travel through water? Yeah, I've heard that you got really "sick" in the sea!

    ReplyDelete
  32. From Shane:

    Claire: I miss lots of things about the 90s: the music, the clothes, the general attitude. Despite my personal troubles, it was a really interesting time to be young. Human young, I mean, not vampire young. ;) I'd love to live that decade over again as a healthier person.

    Lis: No, we have no trouble with water. I think the legend is that evil things can't cross running water because it's supposed to be pure or something. I definitely enjoy my time in the shower. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  33. From Regina:

    Aurian: Love your name, by the way! I guess I don't find today's fashions very sexy, except for the retro stuff. Those are awesome of course. The more black leather, the better, I always say.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Question for Shane and/or Regina: If you weren't a radio DJ, what career would you like to have?

    ReplyDelete
  35. From Shane:

    Jessica: Apparently I have some aptitude for certain careers in vampire law enforcement. I never would have guessed that ass-kickery was in my future. Huh.

  36. From Jeri:

    Thanks so much to Amber for hosting me during the LUST FOR LIFE release week! And thanks to readers for all your great questions--they were so fun to answer.

    The winner of the signed WVMP book is Texas Book Lover. Since she left her email, I'll contact her directly. Congrats!

    Happy reading, everyone!
