Guest post from Kim Richardson, author of "Marked":

Are Angels the new Vampires?

At first I thought Werewolves would be the next big thing with the success of Maggie Stiefvater’s series, The Wolves of Mercy Falls but it seems the winners are Angels. With Becka Fitzpatrick's Hush Hush, Fallen by Lauren Kate, and Cassandra Claire’s The Mortal Instruments popularity, I definitely saw an increase in books with angels in them. I also believe that the success of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials series influenced this trend. The  idea of forbidden love between supernatural beings and mortals is  captivating. We had that with the Twilight saga – and now it’s coming  full force with the Angels. Just like their blood-sucking supernatural cousins, angels are the next best thing—and here to stay for a while.

I  think these bad boy hotties really appeal to teenage girls. They’re  immortal, gorgeous, dangerous, and otherworldly fine creatures. Who  wouldn’t want to read about the them. Although my book is not a teen  romance novel, it still has romantic elements in it. It’s more of an  action-packed-ride with some fragments of the weird thrown in. But hey,  they’re guardian angels too…and they kick some serious butt!

Here’s an interesting articled I found with Anne Rice discussing about if Angels are the new Vampires.

About Kim Richardson (from goodreads profile):

I grew up in a small town in  Northern Quebec, where I developed a wild imagination because—let’s face  it—there was nothing else to do. I surrounded myself with  art/books/animation and fell in love with fantasy novels and movies  like, Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal. I loved to be transported to other  worlds.

Years later, I left my little “hick town” and moved to the city of  Montreal, where I studied 3D Animation. I became an Animation Supervisor  for a VFX company, and stayed in the field of animation for 14 years.

Now, I’m a full-time writer, enjoying the country life with my  husband and two Bernese Mountain dogs, Simba and Maggie. My children.

I write stories geared towards children because, let's not tell lies, I'm still a 13 year-old at heart!
