What the Manolo is…

Manolo says, it is the Tuesday, time to see what the Manolo is…



Listenting to…

The real kings of Scotland? The Proclaimers!

Vampire Lit

Manolo says, one of the Manolo’s dear intenet friends has given the Manolo the reading suggestion.

Greetings dear Manolo,

Knowing that you are a voracious reader, I was wondering if you have ever happened upon the writings of Mary Janice Davidson. She writes a series about Betsy Taylor, a vampire with great taste in shoes. The first in the series Undead and Unwed provides the groundwork for Betsy’s story:

“Betsy Taylor–former model, newly unemployed secretary, 30, and still single–wakes up after being flattened by a small SUV in a tacky coffin wearing cheap knock-off shoes. Her mother is glad she is back, albeit as a vampire, but her stepmother is enraged that Betsy has reclaimed her designer-shoe collection.”

The thing that infuriates Betsy most is not that she is undead, but that her evil stepmother had the gall to put her evil feet in Betsy’s Manolo Blahniks.

Not serious literature by any means, but amusing and diverting for any footwear devotee.

Warmest Regards,

The Gemdiva

Perhaps the Manolo is behind the times, but the rise of the vampire chick lit has caught the Manolo completely by surpirse. Indeed, only the last week, over at the Manolo for the Brides, the Manolo accepted the ad for the Last of the Red Hot Vampires.

How did the entire literary trend sneak up on the Manolo unoticed? And, the second question, have the vampires now replaced the traditional romance novel heroes, you know, the long-haired dread pirates, the blonde knights with the busy hands, the bare-chested stable boys?

Now, the Manolo will have to read the vampire romance novel.
