Title: Vamped by David SosnowskiAccording to Locus (August, 2004) Film rights to David Sosnowski's Vamped : A Novel were optioned to Mindy Marin at Bulewater Ranch Entertainment via Dystel and Goderich.
I loved this book. It's well written and laugh-out-loud funny throughout.
The following is my brief take on the novel: Marty is Average Joe Vampire wondering what to do with eternity. He is so bored with his unlife that he’s thinking about ending it all. In his world almost everyone is a vampire. The thrill of the chase has vanished. They sip blood made from stem cells. A living, breathing human is a rarity, a delicacy to savor should one cross your path. Then one night a suicidally depressed Marty stumbles upon little human girl, Isuzu Trooper Cassidy. This gives him a whole new lease on his unlife. He wins her trust planning to keep her for a later meal. What he doesn’t foresee is this feisty child turning him from a predator into a protector. Eventually Marty comes to think of himself as a single parent who must shield his daughter from the evil clutches of his undead brethren
