Do we need more vampires?

The term paranormal has caught on in the publishing industry the last few years. Paranormal is a term used to describe the parallel worlds of ghosts, vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, witches and usually these creatures interact with humans who find them dangerously attractive. Or it’s a story about a human with special powers. Whatever the story and the degree of its paranormal elements, it is my opinion that the vampire has led the charge in the popularity of the paranormal genre.

With the success of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight, Charlaine Harris’s True Blood, Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy Series, L.J. Smith’s The Vampire Diaries and J.R. Ward’s, The Black Dagger Brotherhood (as well as a bunch of other awesome titles I know I’m missing), will readers be vampired out in the near future?

Or are vampires here to stay?
