My guest author David Vermont shares his best advice for aspiring authors. An attorney and accomplished litigator at one of Washington D.C.’s top law firms, Vermont began writing about religion when he was asked to author a series of articles explaining the Catholic faith on the popular blog 52 Prayers. He now writes regularly about his faith as the leader of an online Bible study group. The Last Confession of The Vampire Judas Iscariot is his first foray into fiction.
David: I was halfway through my first attempt on a different book when the story of Judas as a vampire kept invading my thoughts. At first I resisted, what if I got halfway through Judas and then couldn’t finish? Then I would have two books half done and nothing to show for it. I put aside my other book and began writing The Last Confession of the Vampire Judas Iscariot. It was the best decision I made. Follow the voice inside your head.
About The Last Confession of the Vampire Judas Iscariot
Of all the people who ever lived, surely Judas Iscariot, history’s most notorious betrayer, must be in hell. Or maybe not.
After watching the crucifixion of Jesus, Judas despairs over what he has done and fumes that the Messiah he put his trust in has turned out to be just another pretender like all the rest. The toxic mix of emotions is too much for him to bear and Judas commits suicide by hanging himself.
He is restored to life by the Devil and made into a vampire apostle. The Devil teaches Judas to manipulate men and history. He becomes a king, a general, a teacher and a blacksmith, whatever is needed to affect the outcome of history and move it towards the goal of his new master.
Each time he is ready to move on to his next incarnation he must drink the blood of an innocent victim to be restored to his youthful vigor. But despite his many powers and abilities Judas knows there is one thing he desires and cannot have. Finally Judas meets a laicized priest, Raymond Breviary, and tries to steal from him what he was denied two thousand years before.
