Read an Excerpt

I was born twenty-five years ago, the second son of an English lord, but was reborn only a few weeks ago being sired by a vampire whom I killed, not out of hate, but because family honor demanded it. After all, he had raped my ancestor, and in my blue-blooded family such things are not done let alone tolerated. So, my 'turned' life began in blood!
This is my journal. You may read it and like me or loathe me afterwards. Let me be honest in saying I truly do not care. You will die in time while I will not, so your opinion-good or ill-is unimportant. I write, like I act, to please myself.
Now let's begin by dispelling myths. Vampires can move around in daylight,
but we prefer not to. I mean, one can hardly rip open a throat in broad daylight and not get noticed. So we stay out nights. I myself love daylight and only stay out late when the 'need' arises.
Next, crosses, holy water, the entire fantasy of religious symbols etc. used as deterrence to our attacks. Just not true. I recall one lusty young seminarian thrusting a cross into my face to ward me off. He looked so amazed when I just reached out to take it and then proceed to comment on its beautiful craftsmanship. As I bit into him I whispered to him that crosses don't affect a Jewish vampire and that he should have pulled out a Star of David instead. Of course I was joking since I'm a good English blue-blooded Church of England man myself, but I love a good chuckle, don't you?
Lastly, a vampire with any sense of class merely sups, meaning a small drinking of blood, not a full out draining till they die for you see, although we do kill, we do not kill every time. I mean, the body count draws attention. So a nip, a bite,
a command to blot out the encounter, and our victim just forgets, and life goes on for them. I rather like to think of my little tastings as similar to stopping for a nice espresso. A necessary jolt to get one going.
Oh, turning others into vampires. Rarely done. Simple logic: it cuts into the food supply. We don't turn children for the simple reason no one wants to be their eternal parent. Ugly people rarely get turned as well for vampires are loath to sire ugly progeny.
And don't get me started on that whole mirrors and film crap. I mean honestly,
who believes that 'they cannot be seen in or on them' silliness anyway?
All cleared up now. Fine, let us proceed.
By the way, I'm gay, just in case you wondered. So the old, the ugly and women are pretty safe..
