We got word today that a new book titled Vampyres of Hollywood is going to be hitting shelves on July 8th. While we don’t normally report on books as news stories, this one is an exception since it was written the beautiful and talented Adrienne Barbeau along with fellow author Michael Scott.
Her book is already getting many glowing praises. These good words came from John Carpenter himself, “Sexy, funny and gory–and that’s just the first chapter. If I’d known she could write like this, I would’ve stuck around a little longer.
Check out the synopsis below and pre-order a copy for yourself!
“A serial killer is working through the Hollywood A-list and celebrities are running scared. There have been three gruesome deaths within two weeks and every one of them a major star – an Oscar winner, an ingénue, and an action hero.
Each crime scene is worthy of a classic horror movie, and all three victims share a connection to the powerful scream queen, Ovsanna Moore, head of a Hollywood studio, as well as the writer and star of seventeen blockbuster horror films (and a few that went straight to DVD).
She’s also a 500 year old vampyre. but this is Hollywood after all, and no one ever looks their age.
Beverly Hills Police Detective Peter King knows a lot about the City of
Angels, but he certainly doesn’t know that most of the famous actors in town are actually an established network of vampires. Or that Ovsanna Moore happens to be their CEO. But when the horror queen and the cop with the movie star looks form an unholy alliance, sparks fly and so do the creatures of the night.”
