Review

"Many times, I found myself smiling if not outright chuckling at thewitty one-liners that his characters presented as well as the situations that they found themselves in as the story unfolded." - J.L. Whitehead from Examiner.com

From the Author

Welcome to The Tome of Bill - the series that drags the vampire genre out of the dark brooding crypt it's slept in these past several years. It's time to make the undead fun again.

This is the story of Bill Ryder, a wise-cracking, D&D playing programmer who, much to his dismay, learns firsthand that vampires and other monsters are real. There's just one problem: despite the danger, he can't bring himself to take the supernatural all that seriously. Action, adventure and lots of politically incorrect laughs follow at he traverses the dark underworld of these bloodthirsty immortals.

Writing these books puts a huge smile on my face. I sincerely hope you have as much fun reading them.

The complete Tome of Bill series includes (in order):
Bill the Vampire (book 1)
Night Stalker: A Tale From The Tome of Bill
Scary Dead Things
 (book 2)
The Mourning Woods (book 3)
Holier Than Thou (book 4)
Sunset Strip: A Tale From The Tome of Bill
Goddamned Freaky Monsters (book 5) 
Half A Prayer (book 6) 
The Wicked Dead (book 7) 
Shining Fury: A Tale From The Tome of Bill
The Last Coven (book 8) 

The Tome of Bill series (vol 1) - Books 1-4 of the series in one collection for those who wish to follow the adventure and save a few bucks in the process.

The Tome of Bill series (vol 2) - Books 5-8 of the series in onecollection.

Some Tips for Surviving all those damned Vampires *
by Rick Gualtieri

Being seduced by a beautiful immortal makes for pretty good fantasy. There's just one small problem. Having your throat actually torn out by a ravenous creature of the night is a wee bit less glamorous than Hollywood would have you believe. Here are my tips for avoiding a gruesome fate at the hands of the undead.
  1. Avoid being where vampires are. Yeah, that might sound obvious, but you need to cover the basics first if you're gonna live to see your next sunrise. This means staying away from old castles, spooky forests, and villages where they board up their windows at sundown. Note: this shouldn't be confused with places where the patronage are sporting sparkly makeup and false fangs. You may wish to stay out of those spots as well, mind you, but for entirely different reasons.
  2. Carry a vampire slaying kit. Much like burglars avoid houses guarded by an angry Doberman, most vamps prefer easy meals over folks sporting weaponry that would make Buffy Summers weep with joy. Thus, you should never leave home without: wooden stakes, a crucifix, holy water, a crossbow, a machete, and a heavy caliber gun with silver bullets (bonus - also handy for werewolves).
  3. Hold on there, Jethro, won't most of that stuff get me arrested? Probably, but ask yourself what's worse: a jail cell psych evaluation or an eternity of servitude to the forces of darkness?  Yeah, that's what I thought. It's up to you to decide if you're gonna man up because otherwise you might as well pour some barbeque sauce on your neck and get it over with.
  4. Don't rely on garlic. For vampires anyway. Though a tasty ingredient, garlic is iffy at best as a vampire deterrent. Most will steal it for later use in a marinara sauce and then just bite you anyway. Also, running around with cloves of garlic hanging from your neck is a good way to get labeled as a weirdo, ensuring you get ignored by everyone - except maybe the vampires chasing you. 
  5. Running water is a fool's errand. Sure, if you're on one side of the English Channel and a vampire is on the other, the odds are in your favor. Streams, creeks, or swimming pools, though, aren't gonna do much except get a vampire wet. This will do nothing to help your cause, unless maybe you have a fetish for being killed by a damp vamp. Hey, we don't judge.
  6. Only go out during the day. Don't let your friends fool you. They may be out having fun at parties, clubs, and concerts, but you'll have the last laugh as you sit at home, locked up tight and surrounded by anti-vampire paraphernalia. Yeah, a so-called significant other might occasionally insist that you take them out for dinner and a movie, but don't be fooled. They may very well be thralls, hoping to lure you to a messy fate at the hands of their vampire overlords. Trust no one. The undead are everywhere.
