Maple Ridge author Anita Viljoen will sign copies of her book Feeders next month.
Set in the suburbs of Metro Vancouver, Feeders is a story about coven of benevolent and placid vampires.
Instead of hunting people, they rather have humans voluntarily donate their blood.
These humans have a rare blood disorder that enables them to regenerate blood quickly when first drained but they need to be drained often to survive. These humans are known to vampires as Feeders.
The story follows Anne Patterson who is attacked, left bleeding and broken by a rogue vampire, when it unsuccessfully tries to drain her blood.
Luc Hastings, a feeder, and his vampire friend and tracker, Roman, find Anne at the side of a deserted road while tracking the rogue. Luc helps Ann accept her role as Feeder but things start to go seriously wrong when Anne is kidnapped.
• The book signing takes place at Temptations Salon and Spa on Wednesday, March 2 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
