Thanks G! Smile

If you perform 'Stokers Secret' even once during a gig; I suppose the price of the book pays for itself.
It's one of my all time favorites!

Yes, it's never going to appear anywhere else, in ANY format...ever again...and you can take THAT to the bank!

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for your support and I'm really excited to be sending this out to you! Smile

It's out at the typesetters at the moment as I want this to be perfect; so I am trusting those with more knowledge of the publishing world with the job than myself before taking it to print, as I want this to be perfect.


A question...


Did anyone spot the old Whitby Abbey in the background of the cover?



Dracula & Whitby


Without the influence of Whitby it is unlikely that Dracula would ever have been written. It was whilst staying in the small North East coast fishing town that Bram Stoker found the influence to begin creating the most famous figure in horror film and literature.


Apart from being a central setting to the book, Stoker based many of the events in the novel on real life events from around the Whitby area. The enduring image of the ghostly ship the Demeter coming ashore and the huge black wolf jumping off the deck and running into the wilderness is often a staple point in film and TV adaptations of the book.


However...


...As unlikely as it may seem, Stoker based both the ship and beast on information gained from talking to local townsfolk. The inhabitants would have been able to tell the writer of the Russian ship Dmitri which in events echoing that of the book was beached in the town’s port. As far as the huge black wolf is concerned there aren’t many Yorkshire folklorist’s that wouldn’t be able to tell you of the Barguest, the huge black phantom hound which according to legend stalks the Yorkshire Moors and has a particular liking for Whitby and surrounding areas.

Perhaps the most important location that inspired Bram Stoker was the local library.
It is here that Stoker first came across the name "Dracula" and thus a legend was born. Borrowing a book from the local library entitled, An Account of the Principalities of Wallachia and Moldavia (1820) By William Wilkinson. Bram Stoker took several notes from the book (now part of his papers housed at the Rosenbach Museum in Philadelphia). Wilkinson’s book includes a short section on a "Voivode Dracula" who fought against the Turks. Though the information was sketchy, one item attracted Stokers attention. He copied it verbatim into his notes: footnote Dracula in Wallachian language means Devil.


So....


For those of you in love with the story and romance of Dracula as myself...


...and no doubt your audience...


You will enjoy my pet routine included within The Whitby Chronicles...


Because there was something else Stoker learned during his stay in sleepy Whitby...


Something...much...stranger...


So come and walk with me...in the dark...for all eternity...

Please Note: I hold no responsibility regarding your audiences nightmares after using this routine.

Hi,

Just letting you know for those that have ordered; I finally got them all packaged and sent out today a couple of weeks early. So expect them to be hitting your doors very soon! Smile

Also, I have used Royal Mail - Airsure which cost a bit more than anticipated, but I wanted to make sure they arrive safely; if anyone needs/wants their tracking number just shoot me a message along with the PayPal email you used.

Best,

Anthony

Great memento of Doomsday, Anthony is a friend, so I cannot give an unbiased review, but it is a lovely book and genuinely does have pride of place on my heaving shelf.

I just grabbed a copy of the ebooks. Too good an offer to pass up at that price, or even at three times that price! Have read two and half books in the last hour. Great material, has given me some ideas for other routines too. The smoke scent is going into my witch burning routine as is the the ash on hand. Thanks for the inspiration.
