OVER THE MOON: Victoria Blisse

Today Victoria is blogging about her contribution to Over the Moon, a werewolf anthology coming to Total E-Bound November 16th. Take it away, Victoria!

My Favourite Beastly Men

I am Victoria Blisse and I like man beasts. From the hero Spider Man to Cousin It, I've always been drawn to men who have a little bit of animal magnetism about them. Today I am going to share my top three with you. So, in reverse order at Number three we have...

Beast from Beauty and The Beast.


Surely I am not the only girl who was disappointed when Beast turned into the human prince in the end, I mean, he looked like such a ponce. I much preferred the rugged and raw beast man. I'm sure Belle probably felt a bit cheated, too. And number two...


Now granted, this fella doesn't look like a beast at all and that is partly why I love him so. He's George from Being Human, a BBC drama programme that features a Werewolf, a Vampire and a ghost all living in the same house. George does not like the fact he is a werewolf. He hates it, he just wants to be a man again not a werewolf. Poor George, I always felt for him and he was such a nice guy. Now we move on to number one.

Lowell from Moon Shy, my story in the Over The Moon anthology!

Of course, who else would it be? Now reading the last two I am sure you can see where I got my inspiration for Lowell from. Lowell is very much a reluctant Werewolf.He hates it, every time the full moon comes around he locks himself up in his cellar to wait it out. He isolates himself away from society too and when he meets Jenny, a perfectly sweet if a little clumsy human he went to school with he finds himself torn between wanting to stay away and throwing himself at her.

Definitly beauty got short-changed on getting the --yawn-- usual Prince Charming instead of the intersting man she met and fell in love with

I just love Beauty and the Beast by Disney mainly for the terrific musical score. The waltz scene was a wonderful computer simulation as the couple turns.

I am a true were-lover. My favorite is the werewolf, but I also, like the were-cats(big ones, of course). That being said, you have a fan of whatever you write. And you are right. Beauty DID get the short end of the stick at the end of the movie!

Great excerpt! Over the Moon sounds like a great anthology.

I also loved the character George. Being Human was a great BBC show. I looked forward to seeing it each week.
