Hello all! I have the first book in a new paranormal series called Princes of the Underground coming out next Tuesday from Samhain! Lea Closetwriter is doing a giveaway of Velvet Cataclysm this week, if you’d like to pop over and check that out. She’s also done a review of Velvet Cataclsym.
I’m really excited about this book, as well as the series concept. In order to celebrate it’s release, I’m going to do a week long contest to build up to it. This is how my contest is going to work, so read carefully.
Every day, I will put up a different bit about Velvet Cataclysm along with one prize, usually a book, but also some fun ‘stuff’ will be included. Leave a meaningful comment about the day’s entry about Velvet Cataclysm. Next week, I will compile every entry made. If I choose your name, you will win EVERY prize on the day you left an entry. So, for instance, if you stop by three out of the six days of the contest and comment, you will win the prizes offered on those three days. If you leave one comment, you win the prize for that day. If you leave six comments on each day, YOU WILL WIN ALL THE PRIZES!! The drawing and announcement of the winner will be next Monday, May 17.
Sound fun? Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
Monday’s prize is a copy of my just released print copy of Fleet Blade along with an Ellora’s Cavemen Card Deck. (This is a fun deck of playing cards including 52 sexy books covers).
Contest:One word/idea I created in Velvet C. is vitessence–the life force, the energy of the soul. My “vampires” are soulless, so they have no life force, and it’s this they must vampirize from humans in order to survive. Vitessence can be absorbed like energy, but it also is concentrated in the fluids of humans, especially those fluids that are infused with emotion: tears, blood…sexual secretions. So Saint, my hero, and his evil clone Teslar are energy vampires, but vampires in the true sense, as well.
In the book and the video for Velvet Cataclysm (below) I chose the symbol of the sunflower to represent Christina, and the blaze of color and life she brings to Saint’s gray and soulless existence.
Please leave a comment about Velvet C. or the video, and you will qualify to win Monday’s Contest prizes.
