SYNOPSIS: Everybody hopes that if they somehow get transformed into a vampire, they will instantly become some kind of superhero vampire out of the movies. Bad news guys: not gonna happen. More likely than not, you’re gonna be one of the poor clueless bastards hanging out on Thursday nights with Bob in his vampire support group.
You may think you know what being a vampire is supposed to be like, but Bob is here to set you straight. He’s made it his personal mission to get answers about the reality of being a vampire. He’s been shot, stabbed, thrown off rooftops, survived bad coffee and endured crippling boredom - all in the name of answering the eternal question of what it means to be a vampire. If you think you might be a vampire, this is the book for you.
I love vampires, but a lot of the abilities and logic introduced to the world of vampires just don’t make a lot of sense when exposed to the harsh light of day. (See what I did there?) So instead of bitching and moaning about it, I decided to write my own version of vampires, vampires who could actually exist in our world without magic or any hokery-pokery. It turned out a hell of a lot funnier than I had anticipated and the character of Bob (yes that’s his name) is a lot more loveable than I had thought he would be.
Bob’s history is a complicated one, but to simplify, the book started off as a character exploration of a screenplay I was writing. In the screenplay Bob was this badass vampire who was going to kill himself when the sun came up, but first he was going to say goodbye to his ex-girlfriend Jaime. When it came time for them to talk, I realized I knew absoultely nothing about Bob and why Jaime hated him so much. So I started writing a little story about a vampire’s anonymous group... and it just kept on going from there. At some point I realized that Bob wasn’t a badass at all and everything just clicked with what I needed to do to tell this particular story.
Most of all I’ve just had a lot of fun writing it and know you’ll have as much fun reading it as well.
ABOUT ME: I’m originally from Barbados and grew up on a steady diet of Stephen King, Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman and Anne Rice. Comic books, novels, short stories were devoured steadily and readily and they are what got me into writing. It was when I discovered screenplays that a whole new world opened up for me and I dived in readily.
