Be one of the first to get a signed copy of "Are you Kosher? Memoirs of a Jewish Vampire," the first book of a comical trilogy by Russell Andresen. Enter the Goodreads Giveaway by Oct. 10 to win one of 10 hardback copies that will immerse readers in the crazy world of the immortal Izzy and all his life’s contradictions.

Enter the life of Izzy Glassman. Kosher Jew by day. Blood-sucking vampire by night.

Being a Kosher Jew is hard enough, but being immortal and still living with your Bubbe and Mother, who are also immortal, only makes matters worse. In this full frontal assault on political correctness and common decency, Izzy shares his thoughts of observing and interacting with humans for nearly 6,000 years. He must also come to terms with the fact that his mere existence is a contradiction in this hilarious romp that received 4-1/2 stars from Amazon and 5 stars from Goodreads.

The book is available for purchase at as well as through Amazon and other online vendors.
