Colonel D. R. Acula is the pen name of Author Eric Jude. He finds both torment and joy in the dark, and in the dismal tales that he pens. He considers his writings a glimpse into the collective soul of humanity and all its emotional and psychological throes that create us or destroy us. Having been a doom metal musician and fan for many years, he applies the same principles and dark embraces of doom metal to his literary crafts. When he writes he listens solely to just two (Doom Metal) bands 'My Dying Bride' and 'Forest of Shadows'. He loves a good short story, however he is in the process of completing his debut novel.
When he isn't writing and listening to Doom Metal, he can found looking through a camera lens. While his writings are generally on the darker spectrum of things, his photography focuses on the brilliant and wonderful world of life and colors that surround us. He works professionally and for sake of hobby with his camera.
He also spends a great deal of time writing for his website http://www.ericjude.com - It is also the webpage you can visit to learn more about him and his photography, writings and ventures.
He is married to his partner in art, Kylie Jude. Who works side by side with him on many of his projects. Kylie and Eric live in the rural mountains of Eastern Kentucky.
In January 2015, the highest civilian honor awarded by the great Commonwealth of Kentucky was bestowed upon him by Governor Steve Beshear, as he was inducted in the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels.

A great, fast read. Like the first, this book was surprising - coming from me this is great because I predict everything. Overall well-spoken. Good continuity from Book 1 and like its predecessor, it left me hanging. I NEED the next book! I'm officially a fan of D. R. Acula and hope to read more. 'Nettie' contains more well-developed characters and more of the vivid writing that easily paints a picture for the reader.

Yes I edited this and am on the cover, but I'm still reviewing it. When I read it, I kept thinking "Bennet was good, but Nettie just might be better." Both Alderdice Tales written so far are great reads, full of beautiful imagery and breathless suspense, but Nettie delves deeper into the mystery behind the events of Bennet, and it's haunting how it ties into certain real-world practices and events. Can't wait to see what happens next!

An absolutely stellar addition to The Alderdice Tales. This story pulls you even further into your relationship with Nettie. While reading, you will be pulled directly into her world, you can taste the sweat and feel the dirt on your face as you walk beside her on her quest.
