Online PR News – 10-March-2010 – – When Anne Rice exploded onto the literary scene with the tales of the vampire Lestat, a new genre took flight. Her series dominated the bestseller charts for the years that followed, until she abandoned her New Orleans mansion, and the dark tales that haunted those shadowed hallways. Lestat and his kindred lay quietly in their silk lined coffins waiting for a new dark night.

In 2005 they walked again with the release of Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight, and the popularity of that novel and the books and movies that followed, breathed new life into the undead and the forces of darkness.

When Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, he decided to use the journal as his guide and reconstructed the true life story of our greatest president for the first time-all while revealing the hidden history behind the Civil War and uncovering the role vampires played in the birth and near-death of our nation. Although Abraham Lincoln is widely revered for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years.
