Book Blurb

It’s tough being a vampire. For one thing, there’s so much time on your hands. And for another, being undead for centuries means that you meet way too many stupid people...

Socrates Delis, since he has to be awake at night, wonders why he shouldn’t make better use of his time. So to ease his loneliness and hopefully meet a more educated group of people, he enrolls in night school at UCLA’s extension courses and quickly finds that poetry isn’t the only thing on the agenda. Somebody is killing off young gay men around town, and students are nervous. And by the way, didn’t Socrates swear off love? So why’s he finding himself attracted to his hot, human teacher?

Devin Gold loves his work. The great poets are his favorites to share with his English lit students, and while teaching, his life often seems just about perfect. But holy heck, his crazy Uncle Vince just blew into town and has even invaded Devin’s night classes, disrupting his life. Uncle Vince and Devin’s mom think they’re vampire hunters. Devin knows there’s no such thing, and has lived with the shame of their insanity all his life. Now his uncle swears that LA, even night school, is swarming with fangers.

How can Devin keep his sudden attraction to his handsome new student, Socrates, a secret? He’s not sure, but he has to try, especially since his obsessive uncle will undoubtedly insist that Socrates is a vampire. It’s tough being a sane human in La La Land...


Book Review

The premise for this story had me smiling. Imagine a vampire who is bored and wants to attend a course in creative writing so he can pen a novel about all the stuff he has seen over the centuries. Pretty neat! Of course, being a vampire he has to attend night school. But the life’s events, like a series of killings vampires are being accused of, interrupt his peaceful intentions, and, this being an A.J. Llewellyn and D.J. Manly book, all hell soon breaks lose.

Socrates is a peaceful vampire, who lives on animal blood and the occasional bag of blood from the blood bank. He is also intent on finding something useful to do, and I have to agree with him that writing is probably one of his best bets. Just think of all the historicals he could write with hardy any need for research! After all, he was there! But things are rarely as easy as they seem, and Socrates soon finds more complications in his life than he imagined – and not just his sudden attraction to his hot human professor!

Devin loves teaching people about literature, poetry, and giving them the tools for writing. If only his personal life were as organized as his professional appearances in class. He’s got a crazy uncle, a weird mother, and both of them think they are vampire hunters. How is he supposed to deal with that? And when his hot new student with the beautiful name Socrates seems to be right in the middle of a lot more suddenly unfolding craziness, Devin has a really hard time understanding what’s real and what isn’t…

If you like vampire stories about the more unusual members of this undead species, if you enjoy adventures that get wilder with each page you turn, and if you’re looking for a fun read that will make you laugh, shake your head, and possibly doubt your own sanity, then you will probably like this novella.
