Blood for Blood contains short stories based on true incidents which occurred on the western frontier in the late 1780s and early 1800s. They are tales of bitter revenge. In this book, Turpin tells about 1) “Thirteen Who Will Die” - When fifteen year old Mary Cunningham was raped and brutally murdered by a vicious band of Mexican bandits, the family swore at her graveside to find and kill every last one of them. Thirteen of them would die for their despicable deed and their deaths would not be easy ones. 2) “Indian Hater” - The soft-spoken, timid-appearing John B. Townsend was a Cherokee half-breed with an undying hatred for all Indians, especially Apache and Comanche. Frontiersmen, used to seeing death in its gory, gruesome forms, were sickened by Townsend’s vengeful ways. In the dark of the night he prowled the hills and valleys, stalking his victims. The half-breed never discussed his actions with anyone, not even his family. It was claimed Townsend single-handedly killed twenty-seven Arizona Indians before his death.
It is fictional yet deals with two of the greatest of all American governmental frauds, the Vietnam War, the drug war and their effects on ordinary Americans and patriotic soldiers. It opens in prologue with a deputy police chief examining a crime scene. A U.S. senator and four others have been shot down on the front steps of a county courthouse in a small city in northern California. The deputy chief believes the senator was the primary target because he is shot in the back dead-center between the shoulder blades. Officers find where the shots came from and the deputy chief arrives and is led to a small empty room still smelling of burnt gunpowder. The chief finds an empty cartridge case in the caliber .300 Winchester Magnum. With this, he remembers many years before where a similar rifle cartridge was used, not in defense, but to deliberately ambush law-enforcement personnel on a marijuana plantation raid.
"Blood transfusion is a life-saving intervention that has an essential role in patient management within health care systems. All Member States of the World Health Organization (WHO) endorsed World Health Assembly resolutions WHA28.72 (1) in 1975 and WHA58.13 (2) in 2005. These commit them to the provision of adequate supplies of safe blood and blood products that are accessible to all patients who require transfusion either to save their lives or promote their continuing or improving health." --Preface.

From R. Barri Flowers, the bestselling author of the young adult vampire novel, Count Dracula's Teenage Daughter, comes the exciting book two in the Transylvanica High series, Out For Blood: Kula's Destiny. Sixteen-year-old honor student Kula Lockhart is in her second year at Transylvanica High School in Harbor Heights, Michigan. It is one of several integrated pilot schools across the country where human and vampire students peacefully coexist. Kula recently learned that she is the half human, half vampire daughter of Count Dracula. This has made her a target for those who hate her powerful Dad and vamps in general. As she comes to terms with her heritage and newfound abilities, things begin to heat up between Kula and her mortal boyfriend, Eriq Pratt. She also has her vamp guardians Ivan and Amelia, as well as several human and vampire friends, to balance her evolving life and times. When Kula suddenly finds herself being pursued by a new handsome half vamp at school, Sebastian LeBlanc, she is strangely drawn to him, even if her heart belongs to Eriq. Yet Kula can’t help but wonder if it is more than coincidence that Sebastian just happened to arrive in town at around the same time that a vampire or vampires began killing humans. Could Sebastian be behind these vicious attacks? Another new vampire, Gabryela Roswell, befriends Kula, but has a hidden agenda. In the meantime, Kula has competition from an attractive human girl, Yvonne Elwood, who has her eye on Eriq. She also has to deal with the gorgeous and mean-spirited cheerleader vamp, Jacquelyn Brossard, a member of the rival Doerzic clan. As Kula grapples with these issues and the changes in her life, she tries to learn more about her mother, who died in childbirth, from the only person who can give her answers--her dad, Count Dracula.
