Product Description

PRAISE FOR FAT VAMPIRE



"Truly original and a very fun, witty take on the "done to death" vampire story."



"If Eric Northman ever gets staked, Reginald Baskin will be my new favorite vampire."



"Got the book just before bed... Next thing I knew it was the wee hours of the night... It was impossible to put down."



+++++



When overweight treadmill salesman Reginald Baskin finally meets a co-worker who doesn't make fun of him, it's just his own bad luck that tech guy Maurice turns out to be a two thousand-year-old vampire.



And when Maurice turns Reginald to save his life, it's just Reginald's own further bad luck that he wakes up to discover he's become the slowest, weakest, most out-of-shape vampire ever born, doomed to "heal" to his corpulent self for all of eternity.



As Reginald struggles with the downsides of being a fat vampire -- too slow to catch people to feed on, mocked by those he tries to glamour, assaulted by his intended prey and left for undead -- he discovers in himself rare powers that few vampires have… and just in time too, because the Vampire Council might just want his head for being an inferior representative of their race.



Fat Vampire is the story of an unlikely hero who, after having an imperfect eternity shoved into his grease-stained hands, must learn to turn the afterlife's lemons into tasty lemon danishes.

Johnny, Sean Platt, and David Wright host two podcasts -- the Self Publishing Podcast and Better Off Undead -- both of which are available in the usual podcast places.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok 31 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Funny read. It's a great smack in the face for the likes of twighlight. What if Edward Cullen had been a bit porky when he was changed into a vamp? Main character was lovable and felt a bit bad for him at times but witty most of the time. Shame that it got a bit lost at the end

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining spin on the vampire tale 5 Sep 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
A perfect blend of humour,suspense and a touch of horror that I would highly recommend to all. An unlikely hero who has you cheering him on whilst feeling a little pity at his sometimes pathetic,often funny attempts to fit into a world where his failings are even more highlighted than they were in his previous life.. well written and gripping with a superbly thought out ending that leaves you itching to follow our "fat vampire" into further adventures..

4.0 out of 5 stars New original recipe, tasty & easy to devour 23 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
What a great twist on a vampire tale, really surprised it has not been done before but Johnny does it on a whole new level with some sensitivity and lots of humour. Fat Vampire is a story that was easy on the taste buds and took next to no time to wolf down. I am now looking forward to the next bite in the series. Happy Reading :-)

I found the book not scary and with to much detail to things that meant nothing much to the character.

Not your typical vampire but a really light hearted approach. Couldn't help but laugh in some places so overall an enjoyable read.

I picked up this book as part of my goal to read and review 24 indie books this year.

I'm very glad I picked this one, if only because reading about a fat, slow and weak vampire, tickled something in me that I didn't think it would. Couple that with the fact that he's smart (which is rarely given the props it deserve) Reginald is a fabulous character.

Certainly pick this book if Twilight and the likes of that crap has you tearing your hear out. For something fresh and funny, with just enough emotion to stop it becoming a farce, this is certainly a good start. I haven't read the others in the series yet, but, all being well, I'll be looking them up when I finish my other books.

A nice twist on the vampire genre.

It would certainly explain why the movie vampires are strangely sparkly but amazingly stupid. Good fun but a little short. Read more
