You know, I never could figure out if you were a guy or gal. I thought you were female but later I was sure I was wrong So now with your alter ego as Tanniel I don't know what to believe. Does that make you a vamp? Shouldn't your name be Al Limrac instead of Al Ucard?
As for my name and why I went with Alucard is because I based it on an anime character, not Bram Stoker's version.
One of the forms of Alucard from Hellsing is female, so it works out just fine imo. She's in white in this image.
Only the top form is what you would consider being based on Vlad Tepes, same as Bram Stoker's Dracula.
I don’t see why authors shouldn’t vote on their own work. It isn’t like you’re bragging that yours is the best.. You’re just saying you would like Ben to read it. That goes without saying. I’m certain some authors here voted for their own books. Why not? It isn’t like they are shoving it down his throat or groveling. So you need to keep up with the Joneses. Quietly place your vote.
I haven’t read any of the other books but I thought Waters was excellent and worthy of consideration. It was a haunting dark fantasy, mystery, and psychological thriller. all in one. Sooner or later Ben will get to all of them and I can guess that he’ll be proud to put your books on the Indie list if he finds them worthy. I understand that you’re humble and that is endearing.
