The vampire that rebooted the genre is back with a second helping of supernatural snark, and this time he has even more truth to tell about the challenges faced by a paranormal dude just trying to have a normal life.
So…yeah. It’s me again. America’s most sarcastic vampire. I’m back on the blog. It’s been a while – about a year, if we need to get into specifics. Which I usually do. It’s just a thing with me. A lot has happened since we last chatted – some good, some bad. All worthwhile, in the grand scheme. I’ve dealt with the whole Living Dead thing long enough now to know how to keep it from taking over my life. What I’m still figuring out is how to keep it from wreaking havoc on everyone else’s lives. It’s a roller coaster, for sure, but I’m convinced that waiting for me somewhere on the other side of the Other Side is a real-life life, not just some artificially-sweetened half-life substitute. I want a family. I want my music. I want the dream come true, not the dream fell through. And I’m determined to have it, regardless of how eternal this afterlife thing might be. But it’s a hell of a lot to keep track of. Barring any unforeseen developments that might undo all my vampirosity, I may have to grow up a little in order to get it all to work out. I’m ready for that, though.
As fun as it might seem to hang with the Lost Boys, I can’t be Peter Pan-pire forever.
What readers are saying:
“…if you liked Joe Vampire, you’ll love The Afterlife. It’s everything you loved about the first book made better.”
“I really enjoyed reading the first Joe Vampire book, but this second installment was an order of magnitude even more fun to read. It was just the perfect combination of sharp humor, unexpected allusions, and zany metaphors.”
“…wait until you read what happens to Hube. My heart was racing, and I could not stop reading until I knew every last detail.”
