RVa Author Bill Blume Tells the "Tales of a 10th Grade Vampire Hunter"

Come celebrate the release of Richmond author Bill Blume's latest novel!

For Gidion Keep, hunting vampires is easy.


It’s high school that might kill him.

Hunting vampires is a Keep family tradition. Dad quit the business over a decade ago when Mom was killed, so Grandpa has been teaching Gidion -in secret- to take up the hunt. As Gidion closes in on the local coven, he discovers their plans to kill one of his teachers and a girl from another school. One of his best friends might be the key to finding the vampires’ lair... if he can be trusted.

To complicate matters - the vampires know they're being hunted and they're determined to kill Gidion and everyone he's protecting, no matter what it takes.

Tales of a 10th Grade Vampire Hunter delivers a fast-paced thriller with a young hero whose deadliest weapon isn't a wooden stake but his wits and a lot of luck.

Bill Blume discovered his love for the written word while in high school and has been writing ever since. His short stories have been published in many fantasy anthologies (such as The End that was Not the End) and various ezines. Just like the father figure in his first novel, Bill works as a 911 dispatcher for Henrico County Police and has done so for more than a decade. He served as the 2013 chair for James River Writers, which produces one of the nation's best annual conferences for educating and connecting writers. Tales of a 10th Grade Vampire Hunter is his first novel.

He graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in Broadcast Journalism in 1995. In the years after, he worked as a TV news producer, first in Columbus, Georgia, and then in Richmond, Virginia, which has become home for Bill & his family.
