Chris DeFazio will be at Barnes & Noble in Framingham, MA, Thursday, May 8 from 7-9pm signing copies of A History in Blood (Blood Trilogy Book 1).
A History in Blood depicts a world where vampire culture and politics reside peacefully beside the world above ground, a world where vampires don’t adhere to the erroneous traditional lore. Stakes to the heart cannot kill them—only fire or decapitation. Although popular opinion suggests that garlic and sunlight are fatal to them, in truth, these are more like allergies that affect them to varying degrees. Against this backdrop, and with a healthy dose of humor, the story follows Titus Acilius (aka Julian Brownell, aka Christian Beauparlant, aka Texas Jack, aka any number of alternate identities) on his journey to protect the people he loves from harm even as he searches for the answers to his ancient-life crisis.

“…one hell of a vampire novel!” –Word Edge
“spot-on historical elements and includes aspects of life to which any reader can relate.” –Colbie Myles, freelancer and author
“…kept the story moving at a good pace…great example of how to avoid clogging up your story with unnecessary details.” –Greenleaf Literary
“From Roman times to resent history- we follow the main character from depression to acceptance. A off beat vampire self help book that solves so many mysteries through time in such a way that I laughed out loud. Wonderfully creative.” –Amazon reader review
Chris Defazio, author of the 2014 RONE Award nominated A History in Blood, knows a thing or two about parties—and research!
Immediately following the signing and good food, several friends accompanied the Defazio’s back to their home for the after-party. We love the banner, and we love Chris’s wife, Sheri Edsall, for all her hard work putting this awesome event together!
