NEWARK, OH – November Ellison knows vampires – and true fans of the genre agree. So much so, in fact, that Mrs. Ellison has been nominated for the Global eBook awards, while she recently won an award in the Global Reader Views Reviewers Choice Literary Awards.
A digital marketing specialist and corporate executive by day, Mrs. Ellison dedicates her spare time to making her unique contributions in the vampire genre. Her two books published to date, Beacon and Catalyst, which make for, respectively, the first and second volume of the author’s Jo Benally series, have recently seen an unprecedented growth in popularity, with numerous copies of both their paperback and Kindle editions being sold within a short time frame.
Pastor Jo Benally, the eponymous heroine of the series, goes through a stunning self-revelatory journey throughout Beacon. Mrs. Ellison’s debut novel explores Jo Benally’s struggle with leading a double life: on the one hand, she dedicates herself to rehabilitating troubled churches, but on the other hand, she battles her feelings of loneliness, as she forgoes contact with others in order to conceal her sordid past. It’s when she meets Cain, a man who claims to be both history’s oldest murderer, as well as a vampire, that Jo learns that she possesses a unique power – that of being a beacon, a vessel that enables vampires to feed off of humans.
September 2016 saw the publication of Catalyst, the follow-up to Beacon, wherein Jo, along with the family of a young girl from her congregation, decide to move to Virginia, so as to protect the girl from her dangerous ability to see vampires. However, Jo’s presence appears to cause more harm than good. As her Beacon powers are becoming increasingly stronger, Jo becomes a vampire magnet, and they soon start swarm around her and the family. To make matters worse, the secret agency RAND, for which Jo worked before seeking God, brutally re-enters in Jo’s life, looking to use her knowledge on vampirism as a tool for its gain. It is when matters come to a head that Jo realizes that she can use her powers for good, and readers will be kept at the end of their seat, turning page after page to find out whether she will make it, or whether evil will ultimately prevail.
Mrs. Ellison has hinted that she is working on the third installment of the Jo Benally series, to satisfy the readers’ curiosity on the evolution of their favorite Pastor’s character.
Beacon and Catalyst are available for purchase on Amazon.com
