Los Angeles, United States, September 28,2015/ — Midnight Comes With The Dawn: The Vampyir Plague was officially released by WheelMan Press, on February 11th, 2013, but is now being re-released as a self published work after her publisher fell ill and was no longer able to operate. This book releases on September, 29th, 2015. It is a suspense filled tale of intrigue with a focus on the main character, Midnight. The story is focused around Midnight’s love for women, and love for her lesbian coven as she relentlessly searches for a cure to heal not only her world, but the world of humans as well that have been subjected to the Vampyir Plague.The re-release has received several reviews. Here is one from an amazon user, that goes by The Cook, “This book was a blissfully pleasant break from the overused genre. Give me a lesbian paranormal book any day. I’ll swallow them in minutes and grin at you afterwards. But they do get a bit repetitive. But I’m a loyal fan to a fault. After I read the first couple pages of this hidden treat, I actually texted my wife and told her ‘Lesbian Vampire, Los Angeles, and The Black Death – WOW’. Put that in your coffee and stir it. What a change! It was easy to get lost in it. It’s put together in two time frames making it two books in one. They didn’t stray too far apart to forget where you are though. The story between the two timelines make the events meaningful and you move with it without whiplash. Its realistic approach to the effects our modern world would have with an ancient city killer was very eye opening. For being a fanciful work of art that still made you think a bit was nice! Knock the cobwebs of your brain matter a bit. How lovely! Great, fun read! ”
