Johnny B. Truant is an author, blogger, and podcaster who, like the Ramones, was long denied induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame despite having a large cult following. He makes his online  home at and is the author of the Fat Vampire, the Unicorn Western series (with Sean Platt), The Beam (also with Sean Platt), and a metric crap-ton of other stuff. 

Johnny, Sean Platt, and David Wright host two podcasts -- The Self Publishing Podcast and Better Off Undead -- both of which are available in the usual podcast places.

Johnny is also the kind of person who writes his bio in the third person.

You can connect with Johnny/me on Twitter at @JohnnyBTruant, and you should totally send Johnny/me an email at if the mood strikes you.

IF YOU ENJOYED "FAT VAMPIRE" ON WATTPAD, you can get the rest of the series (so far) in the buy-2-get-1-free "Fat Vampire Value Meal" here:

IF YOU ENJOYED "THE BEAM - EPISODE 1" ON WATTPAD, you can get the complete first season collection here (all six episodes):
