There are two problems with printed books. both soft cover and hard cover, both of which I happen to like.
Cost is the number one problem. The second problem is weight.
If you own a lot of books like I do, you quickly realize how much they weigh when you move. Coming up to the Adirondacks or anyplace else and it’s much easier to lug along your Kindle than it is to bring more than a couple of books. If you buy books online as many do, you instantly can start reading the ebook while you have to wait a week to have the printed version shipped. If you pay for faster shipping, the cost of the printed book goes way up.
You say you don’t like reading digital? That is exactly what you are doing right now. Yes, printed books are nice. I love them so much that I have several sitting on one of my many bookshelves that I have never read. They look nice sitting there and I encourage you to buy your print books from me and while you are at it, you can also download the ebook version for when you feel you don’t want to carry the print when you go on vacation.

I confess. I like being naked. For about eight hours a day, I am naked because I sleep in the nude, primarily because I find pajamas to be uncomfortable. The only time I do wear pajamas to bed is when I have a bad cold or when I get up in the middle of the night and put them on go to the kitchen for something to eat.

I don’t believe there is anything wrong with being naked or even being seen naked. To me, there is nothing to be ashamed about being nude. After all, we are all born naked and odds are someone will see us nude while our dead body is prepared for the grave.

I think being ashamed of being nude comes from frequently being told when young to put something on, get dressed, get decent. Little children don’t care until they are told to care.

The other problem with being naked are feelings of vulnerability. You can’t hide anything when you are naked. I understand the feeling but I don’t believe it is entirely justified because people can’t better see into your head when you are naked. In fact, if you are grounded and clear in your head, and not ashamed of being seen naked, the clothed person who sees you naked does not have an automatic advantage over you. They could be the one who is embarrassed.

I just posted a photo on the photo album page here that shows me almost nude. Actually, I was nude when I took the photo but cropped it so it wouldn’t show all of me. I cropped not because I would be ashamed of anyone seeing me naked. I cropped it only because I didn’t want to risk the site being taken down because of some rules I might violate and I didn’t want to make it an only 18 and above adult web site.

To sum up, I just don’t know why we make such a big deal about nudity. Maybe, what it is all about is the war that exists in our minds. The naked body is a reminder to the brain that its existance depends upon a body and it sees the body as an affront to its claimed superiority.

First Masturbation Story.

Quite simply, I don’t believe in any supernatural monsters. I believe any creature that did, does or could exist would be natural.
I don’t believe vampires that look human do exist but if they were to exist, then they might be very much like the vampires I write about. This is why one of the titles for my third vampire novel was titled “And God Created Vampires.”
Second main thought in writing these vampire stories is my firm belief that if they were to exist, they would have every right to live as vampires. No apologies. No excuses. Their thoughts would be their thoughts. Their ways would be their ways. Just as a tiger or a wolf have no reason to feel “immoral” because they kill other living creatures, my vampires are not immoral just because they kill humans when they take blood.

Peter Klein Bio

 

Pete Klein was born and raised in Detroit, Mich. where he attended Notre Dame High, Harper Woods. After high school, Pete joined the US Navy and served as a Corpsman in New Port, RI, and Long Beach, CA. After receiving an Honorable Discharge, it was back to Detroit for a year before moving to NYC to attend The American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

Klein says, “I lived in New York at the right time (mid 60’s) in the Lower East Side (East Village) and enjoyed discovering the city and myself.

In 1968 Klein married Carmen Austin. In 71 they moved upstate where they raised children and Pete worked in the automotive aftermarket as a manufacturer’s rep, traveling all of upstate NY.

Then it was back down to the city for a few years as the sales manager for a firm importing automotive parts and accessories from the Far East.

Missing the country life, Klein moved the family back upstate to the Adirondacks in 1987.

Klein has been living in the Adirondacks for the past 27 years and has been a reporter for the Hamilton County Express for the past 13 years. It was going to work as a reporter that finally moved him to return to his early dream of writing books.

The thought of writing vampire novels came early. After first watching the original Dracula movie, Klein asked his grandmother, a German born and raised in Romania, if there were any truth to the story. The grandmother, being a sensible Catholic, responded, “That’s just foolish superstition.”

But the fascination with vampires didn’t die. Klein says, “I think being Catholic had something to do with the vampire fascination. Here I’m talking about the blood of life, intrinsic to both the story of Jesus and vampires, and the sexual undertones of most vampire stories.

The vampires in Klein’s novels are very different from those in other novels. Here again, Klein believes his Catholic background has much to do with the difference in his novels.

Klein says, “I can enjoy just about any vampire novel or movie but never find any of them in the least bit believable or scary. I figure if there were any chance of vampires being real, they would need to be natural creatures created by God for whatever reason God would create them. Therefore, even though my vampires are extremely dangerous, I do not see them as demons. I tend to view them much as I view any deadly predator. They look and act like the humans they were before they became vampires but they do need blood and take what they need when the need arises.”

In addition to writing for the paper and writing books, Klein also writes book reviews for AllBooks Book Review.

“The Dancing Valkyrie” (ISBN: 1440432198 | ISBN-13: 9781440432194) begins and ends in the Adirondacks of northern New York. It is the story of a young woman who is an erotic dancer at a topless club in Schenectady, NY, who becomes a vampire while on a hike in the wilds of the Adirondacks.
