Evenings on Dark Island: Another Vampire Spoof?

This time in book form; ‘Evenings on Dark Island’ tells the story of one hell of a day spa. The book was written as a light comedy about vampires by two Florida residents, –people who know the spa life better than anyone else. Evenings on Dark Island has a great plot, and sounds genuinely funny, –unlike 20th Century’s upcoming spoof film, which sounds, well… just embarrassing. Not to mention, insulting to vampire lovers everywhere. It’s hard to find a vampire comedy that really allows even the most dour fans to smile a little, and laugh at the genre some.

The official site for Evenings of Dark Island released a short summary of the book:

“Could rumors be true: Vampires own a Florida resort? One that caters to the rich and famous?

Welcome to the Spa at Dark Island, an exclusive retreat operated by Vincent Bedsloe III, a flamboyant gay party planner turned reluctant vampire, and his rat-faced gardener Arby. The week’s  prestigious clientele include an aging actor, a senator’s wife, and a vamp starlet.  Add to the blend an undercover DEA agent, an ill-tempered undead Chihuahua, and a NASCAR-loving, redneck vampire and his high-maintenance vampiress lover.

Florida authors Rhett DeVane and Larry Rock pull the cloak off a high-end spa in their new fantasy novel, Evenings on Dark Island.

Enjoy a week behind the scenes in this hilarious fang-in-cheek spoof of the vampire genre. Finally, a book you can sink your teeth into!”

The book is available on their official site, Amazon, and possibly eBay, –though not yet widely available in Barnes & Noble, it probably will be eventually. Probably a bunch of other places too; Google for more vendors. Below, we’ve included their ‘book trailer’, –personally, my favorite character so far, is the undead chihuahua.
