40th Birthday Giveaway!

To celebrate my 40th birthday, I’m doing a bit of a giveaway. I’m producing 40 booklets of a Poe-esque gothic mellodrama poem I wrote sometime last year, called My Vampire Bride.

Yes, I know vampires have been over-popular of late, but when the undead pay you a visit, you can’t ignore them! My Vampire Bride isn’t a vampire of the Twilight sort, nor even of the reconstructed Anne Rice variety, but goes back to something far more Hammer Horror-ish, all wispy flowing nighties and misty nighttime graveyards. But enough excuses. Nosferatu don’t make no steenkin’ excuses!

The booklet is A6, with card covers and eight internal pages. You can request a free copy, sent anywhere in the world by bat-wing courier, by filling out this form. As I say, I’m only making 40 available; once all 40 have been requested, the form will disappear like a vampire at sunrise!

    Thanks for celebrating your birthday with this special book! Enjoyable read, and very nicely crafted. Especially nice touches in it, but I will not say what, for others to enjoy the surprise.

    It arrived through the post, in perfect condition.

    Thank-you so much,

    Hi, my book arrived in the post yesterday. Thanks for sending it, it’s a great little book and I enjoyed reading it. Hope you had/have a great birthday!
    Thanks again
    P.S. I also have written a horror (sort of) poem and made some little booklets. If you would like one send me your details and I’ll pop it in the post.

    Hi Murray,
    Thank you so much for the vampire poetry book. I requested it for my wife who is a vampire romance fan.
    She was absolutely delighted with it and loved your poem. And thought It was lovely to share your birthday with you.
    Hope you had a wonderful day.
    Many thanks

    Cheers, Mark! The day itself was great. So glad the poem went down well with a vampire fan!

    Thank you for the booklet, which my hubby (gareth) requested for me as a surprise un-birthday present. And Happy Belated Birthday for your 40th. It’s really very beautiful and I feel tremendously privileged to own one.
