2017 – Ringing in the New Year!

PrintWith the advent of a new year, sensibilities rise to the forefront of our mind. Perhaps more than a birthday, the new year sings its own reverie to get our ducks in a row, to begin again to tow the mark, bids us to turn the page and start anew. Yes, the new year taunts us to envision the horizon and see the future by improving our focus. The festivities are over – winter is settling in and she proves to be a preponderance of resolution our inner being innately underscores in its need for reparation toward the achievement of our newest creative seeds and their triumphant emergence in the springtime for summer’s consumption and fall’s exuberance.

As a fledgling entrepreneur / small business connoisseur, having experienced equally great successes and failures, it is time to embrace the season and refresh business acumen, ideologies and direction. It is time to take successes into the future, and to comprehend lessons-learned from entrepreneurial failures of the past, in order to benefit clients, customers, readers and authors universally in our future.

In order to enact benefits, change is required. So, throughout the month of January 2017, change is the plan of the hour. And, will be introduced as the month progresses to enrich government and commercial clients and customers, as well as literary and non-fiction readers and authors.

Both dpInk Company Ltd. and DonnaInk Publications, L.L.C. wish each of you happiness, prosperity, and health throughout 2017!

Comte de St. Germain – the history of Vampire Jack

Author Lyn Gibson

Visit DonnaInk Publications, L.L.C. for a copy of, "Adrian's Fury" or "To Be His Soulmate!" St. Germain

After a recent one hour on-air interview, I have been contacted by several parties that have either requested more information or have volunteered first hand experiences concerning Jacques d’Saint Germain, The New Orleans Vampire. Since the show I have begun to research him a bit further. This blog is the first of more to come on Saint Germain, I will start here from the beginning:

Comte de St. Germain was said to have been born in 1712, details of his birth and life as a child are obscure, however Germain was said to have been the son of Francis II Rákóczi, the Prince of Transylvania. In contradiction to this date are two statements, one by Rameau, a relative of a French ambassador from Venice who testified that he had known St. Germain in 1710 and that he then had the appearance of a man near his fifties. The…

What I didn’t know about Vlad Tepes

What I didn’t know about Vlad Tepes

vladEveryone knows about Vlad Tepes aka: Vlad the Impaler, but there is more to his legacy than just his reputation of finding pleasure in torturing and killing…..

Romanian folklore claims that the nights that Vlad and his older brother Mircea III were born, the holy statues of the city bled from their eyes and mouths.  Perhaps a warning of things to come?  Who knows!  Though the reign of the Dracul Dynasty is found to be horrific to most, to the people of Romania saw him as a Savior.

It is said that rumors of an undead Vlad Tepes began to circulate immediately after his death.  Staff that worked and resided within the Castle Bran and the Bran Estates reported having seen Vlad walking around and near the properties at night.  After many years of continued aggravation of Vlad’s family insisting that he was dead, Vlad’s oldest son Mihnea, set out to put and end to it!  Sometime between 1508-1510 Mihnea returned to the monastery in Snagov where his father’s remains were buried.  When he reached the monastery the Bucharest priests forbid him to open the grave, thus fueling the legend further.  The rumor amongst the Romanian people is that the Tepes family place animal bones into the grave to give the appearance that Vlad was indeed dead.  To this day claims of having seen Vlad on the estate and castle grounds are quite common.

The suspicion of the undead amongst the Dracul Dynasty did not end with Vlad.  Though few of his successors were actually able to rule, many of them gained respected positions.  One of the more popular grandsons of Vlad, nicknamed Prince General the Violent was noted for his horrific tactics in battle.  He was married three times but had offspring.  Prince Violent was said to have been killed in battle sometime in 1506 but no recordation has been found to confirm.

Another well respected heir of Vlad, known as Prince Craftuious the Wise, earned his title from many thwarted attempts to overthrow his Uncle Vlad from the throne.  Wounded badly by Vlad upon his final attempt to seize the throne, Prince Craftuious and his wife disappeared and child.  It is unknown if Vlad banished them from Romania or if they fled, however no records exist of them after, death or otherwise.  Fearing for his throne, Vlad sent all of his male heirs to live in Moldavia, an allied country.  The only three allowed to remain were his first son Mihnea, Vlad Dracul, his second son and their cousin Colviez (Prince Violent).

The last of the Dracul Dynasty to reign were Captain Radu the Bad Copelanvia is believed to have dies shortly after taking the thrown, but no record is found.  He was succeeded by his son Vladisov Carsoni the blood thirsty.  As made apparent by their earned names, most of the Dracul descendants were known to be vicious and blood thirsty, with the exception of the wives.  Six of the women that married into the family had committed suicide, to include the third wife of Vlad Tepes himself.

Vlad Tepes was the only member of his family that was praised as a ruler, the remainder were seen as evil men.  The Dracul’s were successful in escaping having their deaths properly recorded adding to fuel to the undead fire so to speak.  Vlad and his heirs were suspected to be concealed on the Castle and estate grounds for many generations.  Missing persons in the area and the carcasses of animals being drained of their blood on or near the Bran grounds were evident of the their revelry in the eyes of the Romanians.  In an attempt to end these rumors, Prince Constatin Serban had all known graves of the Dracul descendant opened in April of 1654.  It was never discussed what was found in the graves.

Today in modern Romania, the tales are still circulating. Visitors are warned to stay clear of the Bran and Vania forests lest they fall victim to one of the Dracul undead.  Though this is all quite speculative, (wink wink) The decision made by the Romanian Government to condemn the Bran estates due to plagued soil only gave new life to the rumors.  Perhaps it was an error in judgement that the Government stated the cause of the contamination to be due to the massive amounts of bones found on the property and surrounding error?
