Kevin R. Givenabout this book: This book is about vampire hunter Karl Vincent. He is visited by the ghost of a vampire he destroyed years earlier, Sebastian Vasilis. Sebastian is in all actuality Radu Cel Frumos, the brother of Vlad Tepes, Dracula. Sebastian is recruiting Karl on a mission to prevent the resurrection of the deadliest vampires known to mankind: Lilith, Sekhmet and Kali. Lilith has already been resurrected. If all three are resurrected they will form an evil female trinity which will take over mankind.
• The primary readers of the book will be fans of horror/comedy novels. It's "fearless Vampire Killers" meets "Magnificent 7"
• I wrote the first draft in six months.
• I came up with the title by the fact that Sebastian was returning from the dead to recruit the man who killed him on a deadly mission.
• The designers at Createspace helped choose the cover.
• The hardest part of writing the book was the chapters that involved Nassar and how he was recruited to join the vampire hunters.
• I researched the life of Lyndon Johnson since he is a major character in the novel. I also researched ancient Egyptian and Hindu mythology and the Jewish Religion. I also researched the life of Vlad Tepes. It involved Wikipedia and text books.
• I learned that writing a novel is harder than it looks.
• I want to say to my readers that I hope you have fun reading this novel.
