With Halloween approaching, I wanted to let you know about Irish author, broadcaster and literary historian [Author's Name] Kindle Single, [Book Title]. The Birth of Dracula, in which he deconstructs the myth of the modern vampire by revealing the relationship between blood, sex and everlasting life and by revisiting the 19th century birth of Dracula at the hands of his countryman, Bram Stoker.I know they send out mass emailings hoping someone will bite (no pun intended) but this one is so off base it is laughable.
From his eye-witness account of a castle that inspired Stoker, to his re-telling of myths from the Bible, to the gothic Victorians, to the modern screen, [Author] weaves a visceral and compelling thesis, contending that the vampire story has been a part of the human narrative from the time stories were first shared.
Please consider covering [Title] on your blog. I'd, of course, be happy to offer you a free download, which can be read with the Kindle app on many e-readers, smart phones and your desk- or laptop with the Amazon Cloud Reader.
