Summary

Death Has a Whole New Appetite.
When overweight treadmill salesman Reginald Baskin finally meets a co-worker who doesn't make fun of him, it's just his own bad luck that tech guy Maurice turns out to be a 2,000-year-old vampire.

And when Maurice turns Reginald to save his life, it's just Reginald's further bad luck that he wakes to discover he's become the slowest, weakest, most out-of-shape vampire ever created...doomed to "heal" to his corpulent self for all of eternity.

But as Reginald struggles with the downsides of being a fat vampire (too slow to catch people to feed on, mocked by those he tries to glamour, assaulted by his intended prey and left for undead), he discovers rare powers in himself that few vampires have...and just in time, because the Vampire Council wants him destroyed as an inferior representative of their race.

Perfect for fans of Rick Gualtieri's Tome of Bill series or Drew Hayes' Fred the Vampire Accountant series, Fat Vampire is the story of an unlikely hero who, after having an imperfect eternity shoved into his grease-stained hands, must learn to turn the afterlife's lemons into tasty lemon danishes.

A new kind of vampire

Yes, there is fat shaming in this book. If that will offend you this is not for you. Reginald weighs 300 pounds and is grossly overweight. He is comfortable choosing to enjoy his junk food. He is uncomfortable with people who bully him and tends to go along with the harassment. He befriends a co-worker, Maurice, who happens to be a vampire. An unfortunate set of actions culminate Maurice turning Reginald into a vampire. Since vampirism locks a person into their state at death, he's a fat vampire. Reginald is also challenged in many other vampire traits, i.e. drinking blood. His maker explained, there is a formal process where a person attends a mandatory boot camp to get into top physical shape before they are turned. Since that was not done, nor did Maurice has permission to change make a vampire they had to see the Vampire Council. The Vampire Council “requested” his presence where he must perform many physical challenges. How he does determines if he will live or die. This is a story to cheer for the underdogs. We see our imperfections and can relate to some of Reggie’s feeling. We have hope for him as well as ourselves. Enjoy the story of an imperfect vampire and have a good laugh.
