Dear Friends of of Vlad and the “Dracula Chronicles”,
I first want to thank you for the extraordinary reception you’ve given Book One of the Dracula Chronicles, “Son of the Dragon”. Your reviews have been spectacular and your comments to me very flattering. Some of the most satisfying observations made by fans of Dracula Chronicles have been those professing a renewed interest in reading in general, and a rekindled interest in history, in particular. Such comments are quite moving when made by either teenage readers, or octogenarian and nonagenarians, both of whom I am honored to have quite a few.
Next, I have the pleasure of announcing the publication of the second installment in the 7 volume Dracula Chronicles series, “Empire of the Crescent Moon”, available immediately in paperback edition at many Amazon outlets throughout the world. See the list at the bottom of this post.
The Kindle edition will be available within a few days and I will post a note on that when the time comes.
Because I have decided to enlist the Dracula Chronicles into the Amazon KDP Select Program I may not make the eBook version of the book available on any other retailers’ outlets. HOWEVER, readers who prefer to read the book on their iPad, iPhone, or other eReaders can download a free Kindle app from the Apple App Store and thus be able to read the Kindle edition unimpeded.
Finally, those who would like to own autographed first edition copies, may order them here: Dracula Chronicles eStore
Orders will be filled as soon as the eStore receives its stock later this month. You will get an estimate of your ETA by email after you place your order.
Autographed copies make elegant, practical, and useful presents for the readers among your loved ones. And because each book will be inscribed with the name of person to whom you gift it, you can be virtually assured it will not be re-gifted, as many “commercial presents” are these days. lol
Please do not forget to let me know on the order form to whom you are dedicating the book. You may even add a message from you to the recipient of the gift, which I will copy by hand (no abusive language, please 🙂 ). And it is perfectly acceptable to dedicate the book(s) to yourself. 🙂
AGE APPROPRIATENESS WARNING: 14 or older (no upper age limit, unless at risk from too much excitement)
GENERAL WARNING: Dracula Chronicles may stir in readers an unnatural love for history, geography, and virtual travel to exotic places. If your wanderlust lasts more than 4 hours, there is no other known cure but to read all 7 volumes.
Best wishes to all readers and I look forward to your reviews,
P.S. Amazon outlets carrying the paperback edition of the Dracula Chronicles (Book One and Book Two):
