Publisher's Summary

Book four in the Pete, Drinker of Blood series!

Good thing Pete Tyler is settling into his role as leader of the Hollywood vampires, because Untermeier's Donuts is opening their first West Coast location, giving Maisie Untermeier and her evil greasy magic empire a foothold right in the middle of his turf. Making things worse, Maisie wants vengeance on Pete for something he didn't even do.

There's also an unsettling...thing stirring in the depths of the old house Pete and his human girlfriend Angie call home, and calling the exterminator isn't going to take care of it. How's a vampire supposed to relax and enjoy undeath with all this going on?

Join Pete as he strives to overcome evil and answer the question: How does a guy live a normal life when he’s not quite dead?

If you dig Mercy Thompson, Harry Dresden, or Sandman Slim and you’re looking for a fun new urban fantasy series, check out Pete as he struggles to survive undeath on the streets of Hollywood! Titles include Pete, Drinker of Blood, Doorchick of Darkness, Pete Has Risen from The Grave, Taste the Blood of Pete, The Room-Temperature Warrior, and more coming soon!

From the author: I’m a big fan of classic bloodsucking vampires including B-movie vampires, but I also enjoy humorous looks at what it would be like to be an 'everyday' vampire, like in What We Do in the Shadows. How does a vampire without a big spooky castle just get through the day—uh, night? That's what l like to explore in the Pete books. After working in a video store for years and then running my own video store for more years, I've seen thousands of b-movies—and written reviews for many of them, which led to my review collection Unsafe on Any Screen. Working in filmmaking in both the Hollywood and indie worlds influenced my novel Squirrel Eyes. I've met a lot of vampires during all of this, and it got me thinking about what it would be like to be an average guy who just happened to be a vampire.

In The Room-Temperature Warrior, reluctant vampire Pete faces a powerful practitioner of the greasy magic, the dreaded coming of Untermeier’s Donuts, and a whole new bunch of hassles all when he and Angie want is to be left alone.
