Great news Sabretooths, Nighters and friends!
I will appear on Travel Channel this Saturday April 5th 2014 (yes the night before season 4 of Game of Thrones premiere) at 8pm EST with Zak Bagans of Ghost Adventures on his special about the Paris Catacombs NETHER WORLD. We had the great pleasure of doing the Rite of Transformation and the White Rite at the same time inside the legendary Black Dog Bar.
They asked me to join the show for fangsmithing and as a consultant on the Paris Catacombs which inspired me to finish my book Mysteries of Paris.
Be sure to watch as I am just as curious as you to see how it unfolds!
The legendary Father Sebastiaan, a leading expert on the occult and vampire subculture, is transforming seven years of ghoulish research into a new book, Mysteries of Paris: The Darkside of the City of Lights.
Mysteries of Paris carefully examines 99 of the most intriguing mysteries, atrocities and tales of terror that have occurred in Parisin its 2,000-year history. “These have been painstakingly compiled through investigations and explorations from the Catacombs to the top of the Eiffel Tower,” notes Father Sebastiaan.
Other topics in the book include tales from the infamous Pere Lachaise Cemetery, where Jim Morrison and Oscar Wilde are buried; sites where some of the 40,000 executions from the Reign of Terror took place; and stories about the real hunchback ofNotre Dame.
“Paris is one of the most haunted cities in the world,” says Father Sebastiaan, who should know better than anyone else. He is the creator and tour guide for the Mysteries of Paris Ghost & Vampire Tour™, a 90-minute excursion through the city’s streets, museums and underworld.
For those who would like to experience the dark side of Paris in person, the Mysteries of Paris Ghost & Vampire Tour (www.mysteriesofparis.com) is highly recommended. The Paris Ghost Tour costs $27 and is narrated in English.
If you can’t make it to Paris and are intrigued by this subject, the new book is the next best thing. Mysteries of Paris: The Darkside of the City of Lights comes with a 40×60-inch color map that details all of the 99 mysteries unveiled in the book.Mysteries of Paris is scheduled to be released as a hardcover edition in July and a paperback in September.
The additional funding is being provided through a Kickstarter campaign, which is attempting to raise $10,000 for printing, design and labor. To make a pledge, visit http://kck.st/1dzBTlW.
Backers will receive maps, vouchers for the Paris Ghost Walk, T-shirts, copies of the book and Paris VIP tours.
On April 5, Father Sebastiaan will be appearing on Zak Bagan’s Nether World show on the Travel Channel. He has been seen on CNBC, the History Channel and A&E. The New York Times and Bloomberg News have written stories about him.

As many of you have heard since last week across the BlogOSphere that our beloved Anne Rice has returned to be our Queen of the Damned once more by announcing she is returning to write not just one but TWO new Vampire Chronicles books. The best part is today she announced you can get the new book “Prince Lestat” on Amazon.com.
Now that Twilight is over (thank the gods) and True Blood is winding down to its last season it is time for Anne to take her rightful crown as Queen of the Damned and bring us stories once again. There has been a time of changes and this comeback I am confident is going to end in a TV show like Game of Thrones or possibly on Netflix where they can do the Vampire Chronicles properly. Yes with proper actors who represent our beloved Anne Rice Vampires properly. Imagine a tall blonde, young Lestat or a 16 year old Armand? Imagine a series of Vampire Chronicles with 10 episodes of season I called “Interview”, season 2 called “Lestat” and season 3 called “Queen”, maybe even a 4th season called “Prince”?
The possibilities are endless.
See this video where I got to confess my heart out to Anne at ComicCon 2012…

Over the years as founding Father of the Sanguinarium and Sabretooth Clan many of my Family members have asked me to officiate their weddings, handfastings and renewals of vows. So far I have presided around a dozen ceremonies so far for Sabretooths (my personal fang clients) and members of the Sanguinarium, and now I am offering this service to those outside my Family.
In 2012 I founded the Vampyre Priesthood within the Sanguinarium to perform the Eight Vampyre Sacraments which include weddings. which are sacred to our tradition. Please note that Sabretooth Vampyre tradition believes and supports a separation of “Church” and State, so we choose not to make these weddings legally binding and prefer to only perform the ceremonial elements after the Civil Union / civil wedding has been legally performed.
Blood & Roses – A Vampyre Wedding Ceremony
Within our traditions “Vampyre Wedding” which we call Blood & Roses is akin to a handfasting often practiced in Neo-Pagan traditions which has three stages.
Phase One “The First Rings” takes place for a period of a year and a day and expires, is renewed or the individuals move to the next phase. This is similar to a traditional engagement.
Phase Two “The Second Rings” takes place after the First Rings first year and a day is complete and is a “traditional wedding” where often the civil wedding takes place around the same time. This lasts for 7 years and a day and like the First Rings is something which expires, is renewed or the participants move to the Third Rings.
Phase Three “The Third Rings” takes place after the Second Rings and is something which bonds both souls for eternity, this is a huge and rare commitment which should only be done for the most parallel of souls. This bond is acknowledging soulmates and is not something to take on a part time commitment.
Of course I am not limited to the traditional Blood & Roses ceremony and am happy to offer my services for other paradigms as I am a chaos magician and can work within any belief system. I am ordained in the ULC (Universal Life Church) and depending on the jurisdiction’s laws can perform legal weddings. If I am not available and you wish for a Vampyre Wedding I can refer one of my Vampyre Priests from the Vampyre Priesthood.
Price & Schedule
Usually I dont charge directly anything for performing a wedding or renewal of vows for members of the Sanguinarium especially at planned courts such as the International Sabretooth Conclave (every other year including 2015, 2017, 2019, etc) or the Endless Night Vampire Ball events. Ticket holders of Endless Nights can choose to get married on stage during the ball or the outer court (such as the New Orleans Vampire Court) for free as a performance peace. My fee outside of these terms is a fee (depending on the complexity of the wedding and my involvement) plus travel, accommodations and reasonable expenses. Yet this is negotiable depending on the situation.

You know what gives me the greatest pleasure of being Impresario of Endless Nights? YOU the “Nighters”, the people who support and attend the events, make all the effort to come out and become someone new and awaken! You Nighters be in Berlin, Paris, New York, Prague or New Orleans share the same spirit, soul and love for what Endless Nights has become. An international experience! Yet many of you have not met in person you carry the spirit of EN “AKA Fred Samedi” in your hearts. You see each others pictures on Facebook and exchange energy and ideas. The excitement builds. But you Nighters do not compete in some fashion contest, you are each others muses, you inspire each other. Now that is power and it is just getting even more interesting! Let go!
