So much of our body has the genetic makeup for immortality~ J.E. Mayer

A new novel integrates the latest scientific discoveries on blood chemistry and cellular regeneration to weave a story that makes the possibility of vampirism a reality. The new novel by J.E. Mayer, Immortal: The First Tango tells the story of the wealthy wine merchant, Octavius Kalman as he relives his 300 year life made possible by the virus that infects his blood system, supercharges damaged cells with proteins obtained from fresh blood and regenerates body cells endlessly.

“The science in this book is based on real medical discoveries made in the last few years,” notes Mayer. “Cells can be energized by protein infusion and damaged cells regenerated, and as they do they come back bigger, stronger and in the case of brain cells, smarter. Skin regenerates, hair regenerates, muscles, bones, internal organs, so much of our body has the genetic makeup for immortality.”
Immortal is a romantic suspense set in the present day as Kalman tells his story as a reluctant pawn in many historical events while in conflict with a mortal enemy. Coping with a disorder, Porphyria, responsible for the vampire legends, and in sorrow of his lost true love, she unexpectedly reenters his life again or does she? Along his dramatic journey, he is saved by his love of music and dance, becoming a key figure in the development of Tango from the seaboards of Europe and South America over 150 years ago, to its sensual presence in society today. 

“Kalman takes us through his history using a unique brain stimulation technique that is also rooted in scientific discoveries being developed today. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation experiments are resulting in dramatic improvements in memory. It is not far fetched to think this same type of brain stimulation can eventually lead to the realization of out-of-body experiences, just as I wrote in Immortal,” comments Mayer.
