A vampire walks up to a pastor, grabs him by the throat and says, “Reverend, what must I do to be saved?”
Sounds like a joke, right? However, on this episode of the Write Stuff, our guest co-host and contributor uses this premise in his book, Blood for Blood. Through the vehicle of speculative fiction, we probe the question, is there anyone beyond the grace of God?

ABOUT THE BOOK
What if a vampire got saved?
Calandra, an evangelist’s daughter, is amazed to watch as Raven, a century-old vampire, develops faith. As Raven ceases to drink blood and becomes more human with each passing day, Calandra cannot deny her growing attraction to him even though she is being courted by another man.
Raven’s newfound salvation is both a relief and a burden, as he encounters multiple vampire taboos and must overcome them. Just when Raven begins to get the hang of his new lifestyle, Calandra is attacked by bandits.
Will Raven revert to his old vampiric ways to save Calandra from certain death? Or will he rely on his faith in God to help him ransom Calandra from a new brand of evil more horrifying than he ever was as a vampire?
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
In 7th grade Ben Wolf saw the movie Congo on TV. It was so bad that he wrote a parody of it that was set in Australia and featured murderous kangaroos instead of gorillas. So began his writing career.As someone who knows how hectic life can get, Ben founded Splickety Publishing Group to meet the needs of busy folks like him: people who appreciate great fiction but don’t have a lot of time to read. Ben has written six action/adventure novels (five of which are good) and has multiple other projects in the works. His first novel, Blood for Blood, debuted in September of 2014 and has been characterized as “bold…with nonstop tension” and “hard to put down.” It examines the question of whether or not God can redeem anyone—even a vampire.
