Who they are and how they died is a mystery.
Zach Harris knows a sinister force is at work. Problem is, from his experience there are too many to choose from. Elliot Jorgenson, chief of police, is camping out in the land of denial. Lucy Lane, the town’s reporter of all things strange and unusual, is on the case as well, and nothing is going to stop her from getting the scoop, not even dinner with a vampire.
When an old friend returns from the dead harboring an unusual secret and a sugar-loving fairy-tale girlfriend, things get complicated. An influx of ghoul-like creatures and a mass exodus of Private Acres residents clues Zach in to how dire their situation is.
After a cryptic warning from someone who could be friend or foe, Zach rallies his rag tag team of not-quite-heroes to try and avert an apocalypse.
The Big Thrill had the opportunity to interview APOCALYPSE BY MIDNIGHT author Suzanne Robb, and here’s what she had to say:
What do you hope readers will take away from this book?
I really hope readers will get a few good chuckles from this book. Knowing I made someone smile would make me happy.
How does this book make a contribution to the genre?
This book, like the one before it, bends reality and plays with lore and legend in a fun way that hopefully will encourage people to think in a different way about things.
No spoilers, but what can you tell us about your book that we won’t find in the jacket copy or the PR material?
Molasses was a big inspiration for part of the story-line.
What authors or books have influenced your career as a writer, and why?
Christopher Moore is by far one of my favorite writers. Wicked by Gregory Maguire is brilliant. I adore all things Jasper Fforde; I have read The Eyre Affair countless times.
Suzanne Robb is the author of Dead by Midnight, APOCALYPSE BY MIDNIGHT, the Z-BOAT trilogy published by Permuted Press, and Contaminated, published by Severed Press. In her free time she reads, watches movies, plays with her dog, and enjoys chocolate and LEGOs.
