Author Interview with D. Dye and GIVEAWAY

Releasing February 6th-2012 


               From Noble Romance 


Who knew that two lesbians stuck in the middle of some hick ass town deep in the swamps of southern Georgia would become local legends, heroes in their own right? 

Gina and Ginger sure as hell didn’t. 

But that’s exactly what they became the night of The Midnight Special. 

Stuck battling backwoods, redneck hypocrites on a nightly basis at the diner was bad, but battling those same inbreds that now happened to be zombies was a whole different breed of stupid. 

With their iPods jacked up and some Creedence Clearwater Revival on, that’s just what they’re doing. 

Kicking some serious zombie ass! 

With half the town, looking out their backdoors, and the other half fearing the bad moon rising, Gina realizes she and Ginger are thrust into a fight for the town as well as their lives. 



We have D. Dye in the house (also known around town as vitch36) who has her 1st release coming out!  I just have two questions for you that I’m sure everyone has on their mind 🙂 

So shoot—how did Zapocalypse come about? I mean, I know this is not your normal genre.


LOL. This story came from left field for me. When the chance arouse to write something for this fantastic series, I didn’t think I could do it justice and originally passed.  Then Gina and Ginger started raising hell. They wanted their story told and like yesterday! So, Zapocalypse was born.


The title reminds me of CCR, any correlation? 


Absolutely! Part of the request for this series (yes, many other fantastic stories out now and due out. Be sure and check them out.) was that it contain a strong musical element. I knew that I wanted the story to take place somewhere southern and CCR came to mind 1st.


So tell us, what is Zapocalypse about? It’s a lesbian story right?


No. It’s a story about heroes who just happen to be lesbians. This is a story about zombies and those who brave the battle against such. My heroes, Gina and Ginger are a riot and kick some serious zombie ass. They’re also the type of people you wish lived next door. Serious senses of humor in that old school stand up for neighbor types. They’re the quiet type heroes who on a daily basis just rock out as much as possible.


So I’m getting a sense your story isn’t you’re a-Typical dark zombie tale.


Hardly. It’s rather lighthearted and fun…like my heroines. I don’t think I’ve ever written anything that didn’t have some humor spattered about.


Okay, you’ve sold me. When and where can we get a copy?


It will be available from Noble Romance Publishing ( on Feb 6th. I’ve heard it would also be able at a later date through Apple and Amazon.


So how do we keep up with you?


I’m all over the place. I’m also rather eclectic. I’ll freely admit it. I may blog about men holding grapes over their bits, or moan about some idiot I’ve run into. Might even post some of those WTF? Or a funny bloopers video.

I do give away books and prizes a lot. Like a L-O-T! or Twitter:!/vitch36 or Facebook under Dana Dye here:

  1. Zapocalypse sounds like an awesome read. Who doesn’t love great heroes that happen to be kick ### ladies who will save the day. Thank you for sharing with us today and congratulations on upcoming release day! Favorite paranormal creatures – mmm, well I have to go with a shape-shifter. They can be very versatile in their saving the day abilities LOL after all they are not stuck with the moon and wouldn’t it be nice to have an angry avenger that can also be a benign pet when trying to spy out the actual goings on 🙂 Yep, shape-shifter it will be 🙂

    1. Thanks Denise! Gina and Ginger are an absolute riot and were a blast to write about. Love the shape-shifters as well. I’m a sucker. No matter how cliche it may be…the whole he growled ‘mine’ still gives me shivers.

  2. A vampire, probably because that was my first exposure to a paranormal creature and I used to be mesmerized by vampire movies when I was 7, they were shown in the afternoons on tv. Maybe it was the slight shiver of fear they gave me at the time.

  3. Sounds like a great read… and don’t we all need some strong female characters to be who we wished we were… to model who we can be, that strong, chase away the hypothetical zombies… hero who lives next door. Brava… Hmm my fav paranormal creature… gotta be anything vampiric in nature… yes…though I do have a soft spot for the Fallen. Just can’t wat for that release date… Congrats… 😀

    1. Thanks! Gina and Ginger rock the house. They’re lucky in that both are 100% comfortable in their own skin. They know they rock. They know their strong and they don’t take BS from anyone. That said–they always watch out for those that need watching out for.

      My new in the moment show is Lost Girl. Am just loving that one.

  4. I’m eagerly awaiting this book! I love strong women characters that can take care of themselves and there are two of them. I smell the gun powder already. Lol! Zombies, better beware!

    The humor is an added bonus. In life one can always use more laughter. =)

    1. Well Gina and Ginger are strong. Maybe even stronger than they realize. I truly think their strongest points are they are not the type to sweat what other people think. They have belief in themselves…all others can go to HE double hockey sticks!

  5. Fan of vampire fangs and shape-shifter fur or wings. Oh and hotties with grapes covering their “bits.” 😉 Its all about the ultimate escape from everyday reality. Throw in some romance, a great story and humor and I’m a happy mortal. I can’t wait to read Zapocalypse, I know it will have all the things I love and look for in a story! And you know I LOVE your humor. Congratulations on your first book release – first of many I have no doubt. 🙂

    1. Thanks Linda! Hope everyone loves Zap and girls as much as I do. And yes…you know me, there is HUMOR! No grapes covering bits though…mighty nice bits that they were!


  6. Just found this site. Seems like a awsome book will buy it sometime in the future (got to many other books already on my to buy list at the moment.)

    Eh may aswell say what my favorite supernatural is:

    Vampires. Why? I don’t really know. Their abilities and they need for blood has always facinated me. And of course they are immortal!

    I’ve read more vampire novels than anything else from the House of Night series to Let the Right One In. Vampires are just my favorite…

    1. AbbyV ,
      I just wanted to say I have loved vampires all my life and seriously have no interest in zombies however I read “Zapocalypse-The Midnight Special” and I loved it. It’s funny, the music is out of this word, writing is great and I even picked up another zombie book for kindle after reading. All I can say is give it a try! 😉

  7. My favorite paranormal creature, is of course the vampire. Why?? Well ummmm powerful, sexy, immortal, mysterious. And because alot of hot men haved played them!!! LOL
