Draculas

A novel by me, F. Paul Wilson, Jack Kilborn, and Blake Crouch!
The really cheap ($2.99) e-book edition is available through Amazon, where the 80,000 word novel includes an additional 80,000 words’ worth of bonus content. A print edition (which doesn’t include the bonus material) is also available.
A DYING MAN’S GREATEST TREASURE…Mortimer Moorecook, retired Wall Street raider, avid collector, is losing his fight against cancer. With weeks to live, a package arrives at the door of his hillside mansion—an artifact he paid millions for…a hominoid skull with elongated teeth, discovered in a farmer’s field in the Romanian countryside. With Shanna, his beautiful research assistant looking on, he sinks the skull’s razor sharp fangs into his neck, and immediately goes into convulsions.

OPENS THE DOOR TO AN ANCIENT EVIL…

A rural hospital. A slow night in the ER. Until Moorecook arrives strapped to a gurney, where he promptly codes and dies.

WHERE DEATH IS JUST THE BEGINNING.

Four well-known horror authors pool their penchants for scares and thrills, and tackle one of the greatest of all legends, with each writer creating a unique character and following them through a vampire outbreak in a secluded hospital.

The goal was simple: write the most intense novel they possibly could.

Which they did.

A Word of Warning:

Within these pages, you will find no black capes, no satin-lined coffins, no brooding heartthrobs who want to talk about your feelings. Forget sunlight and stakes. Throw out your garlic and your crosses. This is the Anti-TWILIGHT.

    I’m only half a dozen chapters in (still in the ER) and this book is a blast! It gets my vote for the most fun read I’ve had this year.

      “Oh God. Is that a…flamingo?”

      Balloon animals! That may be the funniest thing I have ever read. And the flamingo gave it such a nice Florida feel.

      Do you get credit for this?

      [I hope so, or I’ve just embarrassed myself. Again.]
