No more witches and vampires

Posted by on November 28 at 11:56 AM

The vampire novelist turned true-believing Roman Catholic Anne Rice signs copies of her new book, Christ the Lord — narrated from child Jesus’s point of view — tonight at Third Place Books at 6 pm. Paul Constant’s take on the book is here.

I direct diehards and people who love watching trains crash to Anne Rice’s website, and particularly her tour-chronicling blog, for more on Christ’s love, the children of God she’s met so far on her tour, her thoughts on gay people (she’s pro), her thoughts on fans emailing her their unpublished novels (don’t), and her thoughts on her previous books (“No, I will not be writing anymore novels with my vampire or witch characters. I have moved beyond these novels and have committed to writing only for Jesus Christ in a more direct way”).

Also, by the way, in case you’re looking, Rice has a couple real estate properties for sale. Oh, and here’s a picture of her in a casket.
