Vampire author gets staked along with the others. (Promiscuity is irrelevant. I'm an equal opportunity vampire slayer.)

Probably the promiscuous author and maybe the vampire hamster... but the zombie cat might win because it has nine lives - and/or deaths.

Please don't kill the dog: you have a very cute profile pic and I wouldn't want it replaced with a tombstone (sort of Greyfriars Bobby in reverse).

Yes, but it'll probably end in a dead heat.

Would the tie go to the most-dead or the least-dead?

It won't be much of a battle. His scene in the epic saga of life came to an end last year.

So he'll fit right in with the others :) It's settled, a battle for the least-dead.

Is that all one character or several characters? Cuz I think I once dated a zombie vampire dog-hamster-squirrel promiscuous musician. So it's possible.

Now you've thrown a dog-hamster-squirrel promiscuous musician into the mix, you've totally confused the situation. But I would advise you to be careful who/what you date...

Are you going to kill them in the first person or in the third person POV?

This decision could effect the whole novel. 

And are you aiming for the romantic market?

When I kill vampires, I always do it in the third person POV
They're less likely to take it personally that way.

Dead heat - so the promiscuous zombie dog is the winner!  ;D

IMHO, that is the correct answer. The promiscuous zombie dog lives, (although he/she is/could be dead) the rest get the chop.

Sincere apologies to all you promiscuous authors, both living and dead.

Based upon my professional experience, the only slightly dead ones are the hardest to kill and therefore the strongest and most likely to win a free-for-all.

Dead heat - so the promiscuous zombie dog is the winner!  ;D

I don't think I'd bet on the promiscuous zombie dog. I'd put my money on the bloodsucking vampire politician. (They have such strength in numbers.)
