Yay! It's release day for my latest novella, Vampire's Tango. I'm holding a one-day contest (today) on Twitter to promote the book. If you Twitter, follow me @michelehauf, and RT any of my promo posts for a chance to win a copy of HER VAMPIRE HUSBAND.
Now, let's talk inspiration. I've had the idea for this story for over a year. It all started with Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke, when they danced that steamy, heart-stopping Argentine tango on Dancing With The Stars. Gilles oozes sex appeal. I can easily imagine him as a brooding, tormented vampire, searching for love in a smoky dark tango milonga.
I've always enjoyed tango music, and love to watch it performed by professionals. But I remember a particularly interesting tango scene in the long-ago-cancelled Lone Gunmen series that nicely explains the meaning of tango.
In reality, I can't even do a decent hop-skip-jump without getting my feet tangled up, so I'll leave the tango for the professionals. But I do love to watch it!
What about you? Do you tango? You love Dancing With The Stars? Ever dreamed of tangoing with a handsome stranger? (Did he bite?) :-) On a different note, anyone remember The Lone Gunmen?
