The Bathory Chronicles, Vol. I

For at least a couple months, I get messages from Amazon re books on Erzebet, and my one The Bathory Chronicles, Vol. I, is first, right before R. John's The Countess, and above Dandelions in the Garden and other fictionalized accounts. I think the Greyden Press Prize helped, and I hope soon to have the second volume on Kindle. Will plan some free giveaways. Thank you.
