New book update!

Hi all!

I know I don't write on here probably as much as I should. I typically reserve it for special Authors or special events. As some of you may know, I've been working on this vampire research book since Fall of 2010. Yes, 2010!!!!! It's going to be entitled A Society's Intoxication with Vampires. It's going to be a who's who and what's what of vampires. I've been taking a lot of my research from J. Gordon Melton's The Vampire Book The Encyclopedia of the Undead. After 30 minutes of searching the other day, I finally found an email address for Mr. Melton. I emailed him and asked him to write the Introduction to my book. I never thought I'd get an answer but low and behold, in my inbox, there was a short email from him. He said he'd be happy to write the Intro and to keep in touch with him as the book comes near to being complete! Can you believe it? After my computer erased 5 pages of written research, I vowed never to write again but three weeks later, I'm staring at his book and I couldn't help myself and now I'm going to have a great addition to it with his voice starting off my book!! Can things get better for an Author? Well, I guess if it was Anne Rice writing it that would be better but I'm stoked with Mr. Melton. Hoping to have the book done by the end of the year for Christmas and actually going to pay for a professional cover, not something I've thrown together by a great cover artist Donald Semora who's worked with my fb group for our charity book covers which he charged us nothing for since it was for charity. Things are really starting to fall into all I have to do is get the darn thing written!!! lol Wish me luck and hope you all like it when it comes out!!!

Keep Writing!
