Free Excerpt from True Blood: Steve Newlin's Field Guide to Vampires

True Blood fans, don’t miss this free sneak peek from True Blood: Steve Newlin’s Field Guide to Vampires, written by Gianna Sobol and Michael McMillian, who played Steve Newlin on the show.

 

About the book:

The vampires, werewolves, faeries, and other supernatural creatures that call Bon Temps, Louisiana home aren’t universally accepted around town. Sweet-talking, bible-thumping Steve Newlin is their self-appointed nemesis. In his demented field guide, Steve has recorded their strengths, their weaknesses, their bylaws, and, of course, how to kill them. Sadly for Steve—but luckily for True Blood fans everywhere—his journal was stolen by Fangtasia vampires Pam and Eric, who have defaced it in a most disrespectful and snarky manner.
