Office worker and ordinary guy Scott Campbell is probably the last person you’d suspect of being a vampire. His new supernatural enemies may underestimate him, but this suburban vampire is much stronger than anyone thinks.



Short Summary

Scott Campbell is a lovable loser at life, working a cubicle job and dealing with the aftermath of a recent divorce. One night, as he leaves work, he is involved in a car accident. Scott survives the crash, but the other motorist attacks him, changing his life forever.

Scott's nemesis (and sire) Jack will not let Scott go without a fight. He kidnaps Scott's human friend (and love interest) with the goal of using Scott as his pawn in a game of vampire politics. Jack's plan backfires when Scott's vampire allies come to his rescue in an explosive final confrontation.

Development Pitch

Office worker and ordinary guy Scott Campbell is probably the last person you’d suspect of being a vampire. His new supernatural enemies may underestimate him, but this suburban vampire is much stronger than anyone thinks. The trouble begins when another driver runs Scott off the road. Scott survives the car crash, but the other motorist immediately attacks him in the wreckage. The assault changes Scott forever. He suddenly has heightened senses, supernatural strength, and an insatiable hunger. The truth is undeniable: Scott is a vampire. Soon he’s immersed in the arcane, highly ritualized, and surprisingly bureaucratic world of the supernatural. After Scott foils a mass shooting at a local mall, he’s ordered to stand trial by the House, the ruling authority among vampires. The group plans to condemn him to death for being an unregistered vampire who has potentially exposed vampire kind to an unsuspecting public. Scott’s heroism also catches the attention of Detective Grace Montoya, who’s obsessed with uncovering his secret and exposing him to the world! Will Scott’s new superpowers help him win his trial and dodge Montoya’s investigation? He’ll have to fight against a system that’s been ingrained in vampire society for centuries, but he may find supernatural allies willing to join in the struggle.

About The Author

Award-winning author (First in Category, 2018 CIBA Paranormal/Supernatural Awards) Franklin Posner lives in Portland, Oregon. He is not, nor has he ever been, a vampire, suburban or otherwise. Suburban Vampire is his first book. That’s the official story, but it isn’t the whole story. Franklin (“Dave” to his friends) has been interested in writing since he was in grade school. However, apart from a few articles published in some obscure corners of the internet, he never seriously pursued writing as a vocation, despite friends and family telling him that he should probably consider it. And now, many years later, after a few attempts, he has finally achieved his dream. Whether it was maturity, or experience, or a midlife crisis, he’s not sure. All he knows is that Franklin Posner is an author, and he’s here to stay. Franklin’s Suburban Vampire novels are urban/contemporary fantasy/paranormal thrillers with action, suspense, romance, and all the blood and mayhem associated with vampires, served alongside a healthy dose of humor, both light and dark, sarcastic and subtle. If you’re a fan of Charlaine Harris, Anne Rice, Larry Correia, or Jim Butcher, or if you just like a fun read, check them out!
