In a couple of weeks I’m going to be doing another promo video for the Black Library. This one will be for Bloodborn, my upcoming Gotrek and Felix spin-off novel about Ulrika the Vampire, and this time I thought I’d do a little Q+A. So, if you have any questions about Bloodborn, Ulrika, my other Warhammer books, or what I think about vampires who sparkle, reply here and I will compile them and do my best to answer them. I think Black Library is going to be collecting questions on their FB page too, so hopefully there will be a bunch when we get them all together.
The cover of my next Warhammer novel. I can't wait for this one to come out. It looks so cool!

Heh. Used a translator on this, and it says, in Polish, “On his website, Nathan Long has encouraged fans to ask him questions about his upcoming book – Bloodborn.”
Welcome Polish fans! Thanks for visiting the site and reading the books!
How will you (did you) decide what elements of the vampire mythos to use. Despite not considering myself to be especially into vampires or horror, I realize I have seen a lot: all of Buffy and Angel (Firefly inspired me to give Buffy a chance and it turned out to be pretty great), am watching True Blood (pretty good), saw the 2 Twilight movies (the girl is quite a good actor; have not read the books) and the excellent Swedish movie Let the Right One In (I really recommend you see this if you have not). One of the main things I find of interest when I engage with vampire stories (or really all genre fiction) is seeing how the traditional elements are deployed and given twists. Twilight may be fluff, but the sparkly skin bit is a clever take on the sunlight element. I urge you to find interesting ways to subvert the tradition.
