Halloween Blog Bash!


Welcome, I wish you a very spooky All Hallow’s Eve! I’m part of a super Halloween Blog bash contest that runs all day, Friday, October 31’st.

I debated long and hard about what to cover as a topic for this post. Fate’s Monolith takes place on October 31, 1799, so should I have covered New Hampshire’s hauntings? Destiny’s Denial has a ghost in it, so should I have covered haunted Scottish Castles? You see where I’m going with this. In the end I decided to announce that my vampire story, Darkest Memory, will indeed be published and naturally, to celebrate, will devote my post to Vampires! Evil grin, after all, when one travels to the dark side, what better creatures are there than the vamps?

Instead of going into the myths and legends of the vampire, I’d really rather simply promote another author and all that her work has entailed. Yep, you heard me right! So a special 'shout out' to author Charlaine Harris and her Sookie Stackhouse books which are now featured in an HBO series called True Blood. Have you watched the True Blood series? Wow, if not, you should. It’s chock full of suspense, dynamic vampires, multiple storylines and…unbelievable sex! (Definitely Rated R Folks)

The premise of this series is that vampires ‘came out of the coffin’ two years prior and are living amongst humans. Suffice it to say, the setting is New Orleans (where else would it be? Smile) and prejudice against the vampires runs rampant. Of course, you have your vampire followers as well as vampire blood sold on the black market. (When taken by a human, it’s supposed to be beyond intense) The whole concept is wonderfully imaginative but holds tight to a feeling of realism. I mean, if you found out vampires existed and were suddenly part of society, what would you be thinking? What would you be doing? Would you be curious enough to hit a vampire bar? Or petrified at the mere concept?

Okay, this is how much I love this series and think it’s a worthwhile Halloween treat to promo. I’m offering one prize to one winner with a chance to improve that win if you want to go the extra mile! I will be printing the list of contestants without answers for one of my family members to randomly choose, so there is NO chance of a single answer contestant winning over a double answer contestant purposefully, promise. Fair’s fair. I just thought it’d be fun to up the jackpot!

For a chance to win a $5 dollar Gift Certificate to The Wild Rose Press watch the following trailer and tell me in a comment what Sookie, the girl with the blond ponytail (that can hear people’s thoughts) does for a living. Make sure you turn up your volume! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vd5E-pHzXGI

Okay, that was easy, huh? Now, for a chance to turn your $5 Gift Certificate into a $10 Gift Certificate to The Wild Rose Press tell me what part of Vampire Bill’s body, Sookie sucks blood from in the following video? . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6bh4ka3Roc

Well, I’ve had my vampire fix for today, I hope you enjoyed learning a bit more about True Blood and that your All Hallow’s Eve is loaded with chilling fun. Don’t forget to swing by the following blogs for more chances to win prizes!!!

Hi Sky!! I love True Blood! I'm totally addicted to that show! And the sex is mind blowing.....wow!

Sookie is a waitress and she sucks the blood from Bill's wrist to heal her when that mean old couple kicked her butt for saving Bill from them. Those terrible souls wanted to drain him dry and sell the V. LOL!
