Here an excerpt from my latest release, “Immortal Relations Coming Out” the third in my Paranormal-Romance Series, http://amzn.com/B00G5BQS18 it is Vlad Dracula’s “Back-Story” as told to one of his friends (a relatively new vampire):
“It was a very long time ago; we were fighting what you would call “an asymmetrical war” against Sultan Mehmet the Conqueror’s Muslim invaders who outnumbered us at least three to one. I was looking for anything to slow them down. I guess you would say I used psychological warfare by building the “forest” of impaled enemy soldiers and others defeated in previous battles. While we had numerous successes against units of the invaders we were unable to hold off so large an invading army. It was about this time I was changed into what I am today.
I was always in the front lines of battle and routinely soaked in blood. Perhaps that is what changed me into a vampire. One of my own Generals saw me surrounded by enemies and saw blood spurting up in the air. Thinking it was my blood he sent word that I’d been killed. My dear distraught wife threw herself from the heights of my Poenari Castle into the Arges River below.
Then my second cousin, Matthias Corvinus, King of Hungary, from whom I had sought help in prosecuting the war, imprisoned me. Locked away, I soon became crazed with the desire for blood I would have otherwise found on the battlefield. Many fellow prisoners died because of it and after my escape I was a plague on the land. It took all too long before I regained some sense of my lost humanity and then only through the assistance of my second wife who helped me overcome my bloodlust, regain my self-control and my belief in the possibility of my salvation.”
