HBT - Vampire Contest!


I'm excited to announce what today's Haunted Blog Tour post is...a SIGNED copy of "Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side" from the fantastic author Beth Fantaskey! Better yet - it's international! :)

Book Description:
The undead can really screw up your senior year . . .
Marrying a vampire definitely doesn’t fit into Jessica Packwood’s senior year “get-a-life” plan. But then a bizarre (and incredibly hot) new exchange student named Lucius Vladescu shows up, claiming that Jessica is a Romanian vampire princess by birth—and he’s her long-lost fiancé. Armed with newfound confidence and a copy of Growing Up Undead: A Teen Vampire’s Guide to Dating, Health, and Emotions, Jessica makes a dramatic transition from average American teenager to glam European vampire princess. But when a devious cheerleader sets her sights on Lucius, Jess finds herself fighting to win back her wayward prince, stop a global vampire war—and save Lucius’s soul from eternal destruction.

How to Enter:
-Just leave a comment with your email address and what you love about vampires!

Contest Rules:
-Open internationally to anyone on Earth! (Sorry, Martians.. )
-I'll use Random.org to pick the winner.
The contest ends on November 14 at midnight. The winner will be chosen and posted/emailed on November 15. Good luck! :)

What I love about vampires is that there is that they can be so dangerous and yet so sexy because of their dangerous abilities which they use to protect those they love. At least the vampires I enjoy reading about do.

What I love about vampires is that I never know what to expect. Are they just in it for the blood? Or is there something deeper? The authors each have their own spin on vampires, and I'm always surprised.

Hmm..why I love vampires. Probably because they're so steeped in mythology from all different areas of the world that authors can kind of do their own thing with them. Vampires almost always vary from author to author.

What I love about vampires is, beyond their elegant sensuousness, the deeper truths of stored wisdom & knowledge - both of which may only be acquired though experience.

What isnt there to love about them. They're dark and mysterious and because they can live for a long time they have so much more insight into things.

I like reading about the mythology of vampires. It varies from author to author and story to story, so it's neat to see how each author twists the basic mythology to create a new world!

what I luv about vamps is that they never show that they are nervous or scared, they always appear smooth and confident. They are always there to protect you so you are never alone... if only human boys were this way...(sigh) ☺

What I love about vampires is that they are always cool, classy, and composed (the good vamps, at least). And they're sexy without even trying.

Opps! Forgot to say what I love about vampires. Sorry.

I love the inner struggle vampires go through with accepting themselves or sorting out their morals. It’s just such a fascinating subject that has countless angles and perspectives, surprising twists, and intensified emotional drama.
