Half A Prayer: The Tome of Bill, book 6

Westmarch Publishing

Terror lurks below and it’s about to surface.


The end of the world is rapidly approaching, but Bill Ryder - gamer, geek, and legendary vampire - finds himself with more pressing matters to worry about: the women in his life. Sidelined from action, he’s forced to reevaluate his feelings. Sadly for him, it’s a luxury he can ill afford.


An unstoppable terror from the dawn of time has awoken deep beneath the Earth and is headed his way. To make matters worse, he’s been deemed a traitor by those he thought to be his allies. Now he finds himself fighting off enemies from all sides while warring with his emotions. Talk about sucky timing for introspection.


As the world crumbles to pieces around him, Bill must muster his courage, master his powers, and rise to the destiny he’s been trying so long to deny - because if he doesn’t, his love life will be the least of his worries.




Half-a-Prayer, book six in The Tome of Bill series, is a foul-mouthed paranormal adventure with more than its mind in the sewer.





Welcome to the Tome of Bill horror comedy series.


Half-a-Prayer is the latest in this contemporary urban fantasy setting about a Dungeons & Dragons loving geek who finds himself the unlikely hero in a world of supernatural horrors. Looking for brooding immortals pining the centuries away for lost love? Look elsewhere. Bill Ryder is much more likely to spend his days debating who was truly the Enterprise's best captain - all while throwing plenty of attitude into the faces of the timeless beasts threatening to burn the world around him. Can a quick wit and a lot of sarcasm hope to defeat primal terrors from the dawn of time? Read and find out.


I have a lot of fun writing these stories. I very much hope you enjoy them.

About the author

Rick Gualtieri loves to write adventure, mayhem, and snarky dialogue. His bestselling Tome of Bill series combines all of this into a world of supernatural danger with hard-hitting action and plenty of sharp-tongued geeky humor.


Rick lives alone in a dark, evil place called New Jersey with only his wife, three kids, and countless pets to both keep him company and constantly plot against him. When he's not busy monkey-clicking out words, he can typically be found jealously guarding his collection of vintage Transformers from all who would seek to defile them - Defilers Beware!


Upcoming works:

THE WICKED DEAD (The Tome of Bill, part 7)
