Book: Anaïs - The vampire that lives down the Lane by Fred A Ludwigcategories: Book, Wolves, Mystery, Teen, Haunted House, Bats, Female Lead, Vampire
Fred A. Ludwigabout this book: Although inspired to write my vampire tale by the movie "Let Me In", I've always enjoyed the classic presentations of the early vampire stories. This was fairly easy to write and was completed in about 7 months. I've always liked the name Anais, (Ana-eese), so I used it here.
Being my first of this genre, I've tried to include many of the aspects of vampires that we've come to know. The rolling mists... wolves... and I've always liked the idea that you had to invite one into your house. You'll find a nod given to most of the classic aspects. We have a Count, most handsome of course. You've find a madman, can't have a classic tale going without some befuddled person talking about vampires, and having no one believe him. A haunted house, that has something strange wandering around, and wolves and bats, of course.
Set in modern times, an old mansion is brought back to life, if I can use that word, by a young teenage girl. She's come to live down the lane. You have to invite her in... but she has the most alluring french accent. Walks around barefoot, as if she didn't feel the cold. I created the cover using Photoshop. I kept it black & white to fit the genre, and tried to include elements from the story. If you look close, you'll even see the vampire. She's watching you.
