So I have this pretty cool idea for a book. I just I have no idea what to call it.
It's a prequel to Dracula
, and it follows a 27-year-old Abraham van Helsing during his first encounters with Dracula and another vampire (who's very important to the story). Basically, Van Helsing is a doctor working for the British army in a forward camp during the Crimean War in 1855, where he meets the two vampires. He teams up with an infantry lieutenant, Riley Seward note
, and an engineer named Tom Dalton after most of their camp is slaughtered by one of them.
I have absolutely no idea what to call this. All of my previous ideas are taken by well-known things.
(The previous titles I had in mind were Van Helsing
, The Hunter
, and The Killing Fields.
