Calling all Anita Blake Fans!!!!!
I have been contacted by Smart Pop to do a giveaway on a book that is going to BLOW YOUR MIND.
It goes as follows...
With the upcoming release of the nineteenth Anita Blake book in June, Smart Pop, a line of popular culture books, has released Ardeur: 14 Writers on the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter Series, a collection of essays edited by Hamilton herself. Ardeur explores a variety of topics relating to the Anita Blake series, including:
- Why the ardeur is the best thing that could have happened to Anita and how Anita was never meant to have sex in the books.
And to add greater insight into the series, Hamilton has written an introduction for each essay that let’s us see a little further into her own world and Anita’s.

The last book Ive read that is like this (a lot of essays on one topic) was A New Dawn, a collection of essays about the Twilight novel. And let me tell you, the essays were almost better than the book! A lot of comedy, originality, and insight. You get to learn what other authors think on the series and that for me is always a blast.
Summary of Ardeur:
Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series is a literary sensation, thanks to its strong female hero, well-fleshed (both literally and literarily) characters and unabashed attitude toward sex. The world Hamilton has created is powerfully compelling and stunningly complex—and it gets deeper and richer, and more perilous, with every book.
Straddling the series’ dominant themes of sex and power, Ardeur gives Anita fans a deeper look into the dynamics, both personal political, that have kept readers fascinated throughout the run of the series. Why is the ardeur the very best thing that could have happened to Anita, personally (aside from all the sex it requires her to have with hot men)? How is Anita’s alternate United States a logical legal extension of our own? And as the series continues, what other bargains might Anita have to make with herself and others in order to keep the people she loves safe from harm?
If I were you I would get in on this. Even if you haven't read any Anita Blake books you could start reading them and then have this as a back up read for when you are finished with the books.
