Going into 2019 J. Reason’s Real Vampire Life E-Zine (Incorporating the Reason Learning Foundation) will be celebrating nine years of serving the modern living Vampire/Vampyre culture and interaction with affiliated cultural bodies.
Maybe we haven’t been around as long as some, we’ve been around longer than others, and our goal is to present news, information, infotainment and educational resources from all over the modern culture. Perhaps we’re not the biggest but our Stats and Circulation figures, we think, speak for themselves.
If you follow our little E-Zine you will be aware that we have built solid working relationships, built on mutual respect, with Vampire communities in England, Italy and Germany… we have built a history of supporting and promoting national events in the United States with distinguished people and entities from the West Coast, to NOLA to the Gotham Halo. We have built these relationships so that everyone who comes to RVL, be you Vampyre or no, can feel connected to the “global Vampire nation”.
As you may know our particular forte, if you will, is in the invitational Editorial Interviews that we are fortunate to be able to bring you. We have forged some wonderful and enduring contacts and friendships through this process, friendships that, really, are the food and fuel that enables us to keep going and keep doing what we love.
You may also have realised that the staff at RVL are actually real people, people with opinions, with feelings and with perceptions of their own. I will admit that I have taken to exercising my right to have an opinion at times, times when I mix a kind of magickal madness with some rather scathing commentary… this is something that is quite aside from RVL in so far as these “editorials” are quite personal and are of my own making and responsibility… there have been questions as to whether this is in fact proper for RVL to be hosting this material given the strictures contained in our Contributors and Submissions Guidelines, is it proper for me to have an opinion? Do I have the right, like everyone else, to state my opinion? To each question I submit the answer must be yes but at the same time there are two different hats on my rack in the office here, there’s the “Tim” hat and there’s the “Ed. in Chief” hat… all I can say is that I will always make it abundantly clear which hat I am wearing – fair enough?
Oh, yeah, did I forget to mention that the “Weekly Biatch” feature was inspired by my dear friend Lady Sylvere Ap Leanan of the VVC and her famous “Grumpy Vamps Guide to the GVC on WordPress? Thanks dear lady… 🙂
