Keeping up to date with Lazlo Ferran

Ordo Lupus and the Temple Gate - Extended Edition coverHi All
I wanted to let you know that I will only be posting every second Monday from now on. I have to focus very hard on my latest novel and the real world tends to intrude as well so I don’t have to much time.

If you really want exclusive inside information on what I am working on, what is coming up, competitions freebies AND THREE FREE THRILLERS, then you need to sign up for the Lazlo Newsletter.

You will always find a page with the link to the Newsletter in the menu at the top of all my blog pages.

Occult Thriller Ordo Lupus and the Temple Gate Translated into Chinese!!

Stop the Press! Occult Thriller Ordo Lupus and the Temple Gate is being Translated into Chinese

Great news! Yes it’s true. I recently submitted half a dozen of my books to a publisher that specialises in translating books into Chinese and distributing within China and Ordo Lupus and the Temple Gate has already been accepted and partially translated. I can’t tell you how happy this makes me. I have made concerted efforts to reach the Far East Market as well as the Middle East (which Amazon ignores and in fact in which it positively blocks downloads) but I didn’t know how to reach any Chinese readers.

Timescales are hazy at this point but it looks like it will be available around the end of the year if all goes well. I will keep you posted if I get anything firmer.

I can also confirm that the next Newsletter will go out around the 15th March and in it you will find information on two different ways you can get any of my eBooks FREE! So sign up to the Newsletter today!

Best Vampire or werewolf Acting?

The results are in! I wonder if you will agree or disagree with the people’s choice! Please comment with your opinion or tweet me @Lazlo_F or facebook.com/lazloferran

In first place we have Tom Cruise as Lestat de Lioncourt in Interview with the Vampire.

In second place, we have Salma Hayak as Santanico Pandamonium in From Dusk till Dawn.

Tying for third place, we have Jack Nicholson as Will Randall in Wolf and Christopher Lee as Count Dracula in various Hammer movies.

Did you know?

Interview with the Vampire:

Tom Cruise and all the other vampire actors were required to hang upside down for up to thirty minutes at a time during the make-up application.

Johnny Depp was offered the role of Lestat.

There’s a scene towards the end of the movie where Louis is watching Superman (1978) in a cinema. This scene doesn’t appear in the novel because the book was written in 1976, two years before the film was made.

From Dusk till Dawn:

Salma Hayek did not have a choreographer for her dance. Director Robert Rodriguez just told her to feel the music and dance to it. Rodriguez would later use the same tactic with Jessica Alba in Sin City (2005).

If you look closely, when Cheech Marin is playing the Customs Agent, his name badge says, “Oscar Marin” which is Cheech’s real-life father’s name. His father was an LAPD officer.

Wolf:

Although the film is about a werewolf, that particular word is never mentioned.

Dracula movies of Hammer:

Christopher Lee’s last film for Hammer as Dracula, The Satanic Rights of Dracula was the final Hammer film in which both Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing appear.

Watch out for another poll soon, this time on scifi movies!
