Brian Painter and Kim Benson, a couple who enjoy writing fictitious vampire stories together, have completed their new book “The Rising of Dawn and Her Vampire Crew: The Battle Against the Lichens”: a gripping tale that places the reader in the mind of a vampire for the entire adventure, while discovering down-to-earth, funny people along the way.

According to Painter and Benson, “(We) met years ago when (we) were very young. At that point (we) had to separate to accomplish some things like school so (we) could get ahead in life. Later (we) reunited at a Christmas parade in the town where (we) were both born and raised. From there it was love at first sight. After (we) moved in together (we) became inseparable for fourteen years now. Just a few years back (we) developed a love for writing fictitious stories about vampires. (We) enjoyed each and every moment together while writing this book and (we) hope the reader will enjoy this book and all sequels that follow.” Benson’s main goal “is to put a smile on every reader’s face,” and Painter “wants everyone to feel the rush of adventure that goes on in this book as if they are the characters themselves.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Brian Painter and Kim Benson’s adventurous tale is about Dawn, a centuries-old vampire who remains looking like an attractive twenty-seven-year-old. She is transported to the room of Zen anytime she is ready for a new mission or if she has questions about the mission she is on. The missions range from the killing of a simple chupakabre because it was killing innocent people, to the destruction of the head of a group of lichens that are dead set on taking over the human race. The plot thickens and takes twists and turns that readers will not expect.

Once readers get to know Dawn and her lover, Josh, and their love for the taste of tequila and blood, they will realize how hard-core these vampires really are. This book puts readers in the driver seat of the main character throughout the book, and sequels are planned to follow.
Readers who wish to experience this enthralling work can purchase “The Rising of Dawn and Her Vampire Crew: The Battle Against the Lichens” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
