The question came up when one of my friends asked why not write about Dracula or one of the other more famous people who lived in Transylvania?
Well, for one thing it's been done before, and done to dead... or in Count Dracula's case, un-dead... ha ha sorry being a bit tongue in cheek.
So, why publish a book on Transylvania?
The simplest answer is that there is a market and I am certain that people are interested in a book which is not about myths or people who were famous for being royalty. I am also certain that there is an untapped market for history of Eastern Europe like this. That is why I think it is a good thing to publish a book on Transylvania.
