Curse of a Lady Vampire: 2nd Edition, a new book by Jo Ann Atcheson Gray, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Fearing an immortal life without her best friend, Sophia, Annania, the first lady vampire, converts Sophia to a vampire, unknowingly transferring to her a deadly curse. For you see, age old tradition dictates that women cannot be converted to vampires-and yet, here they are.

As punishment, seemingly for their very existence, Sophia must conceive a baby girl with a mortal male before it’s too late. If she fails, the entire vampire race will be wiped from existence! Now, it’s a race against time to fulfill the parameters of the curse. But perhaps there are greater powers at play, and secrets to unravel.
