I hope that the season finds you warm and reading. It is getting so cold here. Hoping for a mild winter but Mother Nature has a mind of her own and often carries a big stick.
Dracula: Hearts of Stone (Dracula is a GOOD GUY. And there are wizards and a beautiful Siamese cat named Moon Diamond. The author Piers Anthony is a vampire.)
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. Stir in some red sheriffs. 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.
I should have left a note for you. I read that book in 2004, it was only when you posted it up did I recall it and I had liked it quite a bit actually. Something about the simplicity of the language got to me. Right now I am exploring science fiction. In the decades of reading I have only now picked up this genre. Well apart from the Douglas Adams. :)
What are you reading these days?
