It’s not easy for an author to come with something that’s already been done, so I must offer congratulations to Erica Manfred for writing Interview with a Jewish Vampire. The reviews call it “hysterical” and clever, so naturally I had to download a copy. Interview with a Jewish Vampire is FREE today and tomorrow on Amazon, so go get yourself a copy! I can’t wait to read and review it.
About the book:
The last thing zaftig middle-aged journalist, Rhoda Ginsburg, expected when she signed up for JDate was to fall in love with a vampire. But when she meets drop-dead gorgeous Sheldon, a Hasidic vampire, she falls hard. She rationalizes that he may not be alive, but at least he’s Jewish.
She learns that back in the nineteenth century Sheldon was a rabbi who was turned into a vampire by Count Dracula, an anti-Semite who got his kicks from turning Orthodox Jews into vampires because then they’d have to drink blood, which isn’t kosher.
Soon after she meets Sheldon, she discovers her beloved mother, Fanny, is terminally ill, so she comes up with the crackpot idea of getting Sheldon to turn Fanny and her friends, known as “the goils,” into vampires. Once she becomes a vampire, Fanny tires of her boring life in Century Village, Florida, and, seeking thrills, she goes clubbing and disappears into the nightlife of South Beach in Miami. When Fanny and her goil posse “go rogue” and start preying on the young, Rhoda and Sheldon must track them down to keep them from killing again.
Interview with a Jewish Vampire turns vampire lore on its head, proving that not all vampires are young and beautiful and it IS possible to be undead and kosher.
Now that you’ve nearly died from laughter just by reading the blurb, don’t forget to visit Amazon and download a copy of Interview with a Jewish Vampire for your Kindle or other device.
