Fans who are familiar with Luxura can now get all of her stories in one collection. And those of you who have heard of or seen images of Luxura, can now read all of her stories.
The Vampress Luxura is my original character that was the star of my highly successful Vamperotica comic series which ran for 50 issues and also spun off into several mini-series and magazines.
Luxura belongs to a race of vampires known as the 'Kith'. Although her exact age has not yet been disclosed, she is at least several centuries old. She has made good use of this time, building her own shadow empire that spans the globe. The heart of this empire is a complex in Manhattan, New York. It is a vast network of tunnels, caverns, and trophy rooms.
Luxura is an avid collector. While much of her many collections have monetary value, most items are kept for sentimental value. Amongst the armor, jewelry, clothing, books and weapons, there is the crown jewel of her collections... the Blood Vault. This vault, believed by many to be the largest in the world, contains thousands of wine bottles filled with magically preserved blood. Each bottle is carefully labeled, and displays a portrait or photograph of the donor. In her Blood Vault is every conceivable historical figure that you can think of from Julius Caesar to John F. Kennedy.
Luxura is a strong believer in the rule of law, and actively works to enforce the three main tenets of Kith society- sustaining mortals as a plentiful food source, regulating the Kith to prevent anarchy, and maintaining discretion so mortals are not alerted to the existence of Kith.
Each Trade Paperback will be at least 150 pages. Each book will also be signed by Kirk Lindo and contain the official Vampress Luxura Seal of Authenticity.
I have set the funding goal at the minimum that is needed to cover the cost of printing, shipping, Kickstarter fees and the rewards. Any additional funds raised will be used to expedite delivery, promote the project and print additional copies of the books for distribution.

"my package arrived today, after 27minutes of unpacking,(excellent packing I must say) and removing each piece from the box( I was floored) by the entire collection of vampress collectables in front of me .words will not begin to describe this box of treasures I now have. THANK YOU!!
