I’m dying for some BIPOC vampires I can really sink my teeth into. Ideally wise cracking and leather pants wearing but I’m not that picky. I just want more diversity in my night life.
Shana: Well, there’s classics that I love, like Jewelle Gomez’s The Gilda Stories ( A | BN | K | AB ), Tananarive Due’s My Soul to Keep ( A | BN | K | G | AB ), and Octavia Butler’s Fledgling ( A | BN | K | AB ), but that doesn’t get you the lighthearted fun…or the leather pants. For that, you need the Vampire Sorority Sisters series by Rebekah Weatherspoon.
And several options in the anthology Vampires Never Get Old: Tales with Fresh Bite.
10+ years ago there was a brief explosion of chick-lit + paranormal, and Happy Hour at Casa Dracula by Marta Acosta ( A ) fits this brief.
