“Midwestern nice” is hard to pull off when you’re a bloodthirsty monster…
When truckstop diner cook and mediocre bowler Herb Knudsen becomes a vampire, his once simple life gets a bit more complicated.
Herb’s not even sure how it happened. He wasn’t bitten by a vampire, which means there’s no one around to help him learn the ropes. With no one to guide him, Herb fumbles into his newfound abilities, courting disaster with every step.
Despite learning each new lesson the hard way, being a vampire isn’t all bad. He’s stronger, a little sexier, and a heck of a lot better at bowling. Even Lois, the girl of his dreams, is starting to notice him. But he can’t drink beer, the bodies are piling up, and his best friend Dallas isn’t just getting suspicious – he’s getting jealous.
When Lois is caught in the middle of the two friends’ escalating rivalry, keeping his dark secret becomes the least of Herb’s concerns.
Booze, bowling, bake sales, bar fights, babes, blood and karaoke… Who would have thought that being undead would make life so exciting?
About the Monsters in the Midwest series:
The horror-comedy trilogy follows three friends – Herb, Dallas, and Stanley – on their supernatural misadventures in the northwoods of Wisconsin. The first book, Wisconsin Vamp, chronicles lovable loser Herb’s unlikely journey from zero to hero when he becomes a vampire. Northwoods Wolfman picks up where the first book leaves off, but follows the swaggering egomaniac Dallas as he becomes a werewolf and learns a little sympathy for the devil. In the soon-to-be-released third book, Undead Cheesehead, it’s Stanley’s turn. Bad enough that he was abducted by aliens in high school. Now, Stanley’s become a zombie. Fortunately, there’s more to Stanley than meets the eye. Or maybe there are just more Stanleys. Either way, Wisconsin needs saving, and Stanley might just be the one to do it.
Enjoy your time with the flannel-clad trio. Northern Wisconsin is lovely this time of year! Just don’t forget your bug spray…
