F.D. Grossabout this book: This book is the first installment of the Wolfgang Trilogy. It is about a vampire hunter, a father who loses everything he has that is important to him, and most importantly, his family. Yet comes to understand his son may still be alive after all and his first clue leads him to believe his butler has kidnapped him. The book explores elements of adventure and action while still maintaining a close look at the human condition. What it means to be human. And what extreme measures a father will go through to get back the one he cares about most. My inspiration comes from many fields of fantasy including the sub-genre horror. Book, games, movies, all of those things with vampires and hunters in them. I remember from my childhood growing up, two major influences was Fright Nights the movie and Castlevania the video game on Nintendo. And of course, Bram Stokers Dracula. Couple those with lord of the rings and later on in life, the Hunger Games, and I seemed to have gelled this morphing monster into a conglomeration of survival vampire hunting with a twist of mystery and suspense. The majority of readers who've expressed interest in this book range from all ages. Fourteen and up. A lot of fans in the horror and fantasy genres, as well as steampunk, sci-fi, gothic, and mystery. It took me about three years to write the book and a year to publish it. When it came around to titling the book "Wolfgang" I knew from the beginning it was going to carry that title. Tenor Wolfgang, which is the protagonists name, was created on a musical aspect. Key point that I am a big fan of Mozart, as well as Bach. But when it came down to the choosing, I went with Mozart's first name and rolled with it. It's a strong name.
The cover spoke a thousand words to me. A haunted medieval ruined castle that aged for many years. It is the heart of the story, and I think in a story like this, action/adventure, the cover should symbolize the focal point of the story, or the "setting" in which this case is Egleaseon's Ruin. No part of this book was difficult to write. I enjoyed every second of it as well as the following books in the sequence. There was a natural flow to its creation and I think thats important. I can say my childhood was my research period. All of the inspirations throughout growing up, molding me into who I am today had a major focus on the lore I know about vampires, the many different types, and which settings they belong in. After writing Wolfgang, I realized it made me a better writer all around and to be more patient when it comes to putting out new content.
As to my readers, I say, please enjoy this fantastic tale of a journey into the depths of darkness. It is a story about finding the light in a grim world and overcoming adversary that could easily reflect today's world. Witness the new legend in vampire hunting being born!
