Bloodsucking Fiends by Christopher Moore

When young Tommy Flood moved to San Francisco looking for a muse and the kind of adventure that would kick-start his writing career, he wasn't expecting to meet Jody. But barely off the bus from Indiana, this gorgeous, newly-created vampire draws him in as her roommate, daytime errand-boy, and lover. Let the adventure begin!

Moore's known for quick-witted black comedy, and this one's no exception. There's a great cast of characters in this book - especially Tommy's co-workers, The Animals. I wanna hang with this gang of misfits ... or, maybe not.

And for the record, this book was vampire-cool way before Twilight: released in 1995, this is actually the first in a series (I'm just now catching up). Moore also has written a bunch of non-vampire books that are just as twisted and funny.
