Welcome! First, allow me to express my EXCITEMENT over this cover reveal and say that I adore Kai Kiriyama. Second, allow me to preface this with a personal anecdote:
Whenever we visit my father-in-law, I take advantage of his premium channels (I have none. He has many). More often than not, I wind up watching some Dracula-themed movie. More often than not, he makes fun of me for this. But to me, there is something so poetic, heartwrenching, and classically romantic about Dracula. I think I tried to explain this to my f-i-l once, and he chuckled and walked off. It didn't matter -- I looooove Dracula-themed stories. Maybe you do too. If so, it's your lucky day :)
READY FOR THIS ONE?
TITLE: My Life Beyond the Grave: The Untold Story of Vlad Dracula
(A Famous Monster Memoir)
AUTHOR: Kai Kiriyama
GENRE: Fiction - Memoir
SYNOPSIS: "I have lived a life worth speaking about, and have seen things that would leave a modern man weeping in fear. I have outlived my entire family and have lived to see a time that one could not think possible. I have traveled the globe, and I have spread an empire greater than anything that I could have ever accomplished in my mortal life.
I am here to speak of these accomplishments, to tell my story for once without the smoke and mirrors of the silver screen, or the whispers in the dark of a pub where it's better that you pretend you don’t notice the regal, pale man in the corner who hasn’t touched his drink. I don't expect you to believe everything that I say here in these pages, but this is my truth as I know it to be.
My name is Vlad Tepes Dracul, and I am here to tell you my story."
