When I learned that my friend, Beth (the mastermind behind one of my major obsessions, Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab) was publishing a book, I could not wait to get my hands on it. Writing alongside D.H. Altair AKA Del Howison, proprietor of Dark Delicacies, Beth takes us on a memorable journey into vampire lore, history and myth-busting.

With dark wit, a wink and tongue firmly in cheek, this conversational and instructional manual is the foremost source in how to find and (hopefully) ensnare the va

VDSA is straightforward in its purpose- a guide to seducing and dating vampires. I wonder, though, would vampires find this offensive fetishization? Perhaps, but plenty of them fetishize having a human girlfriend, so I guess it balances out. The advice is sound enough- dress in a manner reminiscent of their former time period without going into offensive costume territory, avoid perfumes with savory notes, leave if he starts to turn your friends. Where it falls down is trying to integrate its wo ...more

Have you ever wondered about the best way to go about getting that hunky immortal lover? Wanted to understand how vampires think, so that you can find your forever love with one? Thought that the people dressed in goth chic, hoping to entice a centuries-old blood sucker, were going about it the wrong way? This guide might be for you.

The conceit here is that vampires are not only real, but out and known in the world, and mostly accepted. The authors writing this self-help vampire dating guide are

I managed to get just over halfway through this book before I just couldn't stand the misogyny anymore. If you remove all references to vampires, it reads like a Seventeen magazine's dating guide, complete with all the 'ladies, it's your responsibility to look nice, say the right things, and impress him!'. The book is solely focused on a female human tracking down, meeting, seducing, and whoring herself out to a male vampire. You could replace the word 'vampire' wherever it appears with the word ...more

This is a fun read, very smart, witty,and unafraid to poke at recent vampire pop culture. *cough*Twilight*cough* I think readers who are already interested in vampire fiction and lore will love this. I like to think that everyone will appreciate the gentle pokes at vampire pop culture, and the subcultures of vampire veneration. The voices of the advice-dispensing narrators are a perfect balance of informative, educated (they do not avoid technical terminology or thesaurus-friendly, multi-syllabi ...more

I was very much looking forward to reading this, since I love Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and this was co-written by the woman behind it. Perhaps I was expecting more humour, other than the whole premise of a how-to book on how to attract an undead lover since, you know, vampires don't exist. That seems funny, right?

I did appreciate the myth and legend that was written about, as well as the own lore invented for this book.

For those who care about this sort of thing, there are several editorial mi

Good premise, and I think the tie-in perfumes on the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab are super cool, but I don't need to read the whole thing. I get the gist. The major redeeming quality was the list of different types of vampires. Other than that, this is a novelty sprung by Pride, Predjudice and Zombies and the like. It would maybe make a good coffee-table book type gift to a vampire lover.

I bought this book from the authors store in Burbank and I have it signed. I personally thought it was brilliant, amusing and well written. But remember this book is a JOKE so don't start reading it and getting all offended because they don't portray vampires the way you want them to be seen, Just enjoy it and laugh!
