Dracula: Hearts of Stone
We start with a shiny new pot of boiling water and add too many evil vampires, and not enough of the good biters. Toss in one suicidal Dracula; add a cup of mayhem and a dash of romance. Oh yes, and a pinch of mirth. Stir lovingly and you have a novel by A. J. Gallant. If it sounds like the recipe for you then you must read Dracula: Hearts of Stone.
Please check out my author page for excerpts:
Unrealistic or not my writing gives me hope. But with something like 50 000 books published a month it is a little discouraging. I can just picture my book underneath that pile being crushed. I didn’t think there were that many writers out there. Must be a factory out there producing them like peanut butter cookies.
Stargem, I looked at your shelf. I like it. I clicked on Books in Common (with me) and then looked at your favorites...then sort of scanned. You rate some my favorites very high. : Catch-22, John Dies At the End (I wasn't sure f anyone else had actually read that one), Bridge to Terabithia, Vonnegut books and House of Leaves, which may the strangest book I have ever read. I got some ideas for books from your shelf beacause it seem like you have good or at least similar tastes to me. thank you for listening. -John

"I will persist until I succeed.
Always will I take another step.
If that is of no avail I will take another,
and yet another.
In truth, one step at
a time is not too difficult...
I know that small attempts,
complete any undertaking."
