The Ultimate Giveaway For Fans of Fangs

Another contest. First contest, out of two I will be hosting, in October. There are two books, named Vampires and Werewolves.

This is from Karen, the publisher.

Those obessed with fangs – the vampire and werewolf kind – will DROOL over VAMPIRES by Joules Taylor and WEREWOLVES by Jon Izzard – both published by Octopus Press USA. VAMPIRES explores the ancient and modern myths from around the world, details accounts of real-life vampires both mental and physical, and profiles the popularity and fascination with vampires in pop culture. WEREWOLVES is a riveting volume about the transformations, inner rage, extra human strength, mysterious curses and modern cures of these complex creatures. I’ve attached the press release for your reference.

So yeah the books are the perfect companion for us people obsessed with vamps and werewolves. Those who like The Mortal Instruments series, Vampire Academy, Shiver, and many other books like that will love these two companion guides. And not only those who like books about them, but series like Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Supernatural, etc.

Now, there will be 2 winners. So double the chance to win! You have to be a follower of mine, or become one, and leave your email because if you don't, well, you won't be entered, and that would suck, hehe.

I'm going to say werewolves, only because so far, they've gotten the short end of the stick. People think they clumsy hairy oafs, but imagine a new-age werewolf... a normal person walking around in daylight, skin is not super pale, beautiful eyes (just like vampires), not crazy hair, just as strong as vampires, more sensitive to smells, feelings, noise and best of all, they will be able shape shift on command!
