Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Publisher Marketing: A nomadic group of vampires has come to Atlanta to find a new wife and daughter for their leader, a tortured creature who traded his soul for immortality and power. Tom Resnick, a successful conservative talk-show host, thinks he understands life, and that he is in complete control of his destiny-until his wife and daughter become the vampires' next target. Hell itself protects these creatures, and Tom refuses to believe they exist. If not for the intervention of a mysterious vampire hunter who's been chasing the monsters for over twenty years, Tom and his family would already by lost. But even with the stranger's help, Tom must quickly expand his view of reality, beyond logic and reason, to have any chance at protecting his family. To save his wife and daughter may cost Tom his own soul, but first he must admit he has one.Will the pent-up demand for this book fill my store with Anne-Rice-haters champing at the bit?
