Hey Everyone! I hope your weekend is awesome, relaxing and full of writely things.
Today I thought I’d do something fun. Instead of reading a post of rambles from me I thought I’d do a giveaway. Bare with me as for the life of me I can’t get the rafflecopter to embed right, so what I have for you is a link. 😦 If someone knows how to fix this please let me know!
But back to the point. I have two books that I would love to send out. The first is a copy of of Blue Bloods by Melissa De La Cruz. And no the mug does not come with it. 😉 This book is a cool spin on Vampire myths, good for an afternoon fun read.
Here’s a synopsis for the book: When the Mayflower set sail in 1620, it carried on board the men and women who would shape America: Miles Standish; John Alden; Constance Hopkins. But some among the Pilgrims were not pure of heart; they were not escaping religious persecution. Indeed, they were not even human. They were vampires.The vampires assimilated quickly into the New World. Rising to levels of enormous power, wealth, and influence, they were the celebrated blue bloods of American society.
The Blue Bloods vowed that their immortal status would remain a closely guarded secret. And they kept that secret for centuries. But now, in New York City, the secret is seeping out. Schuyler Van Alen is a sophomore at a prestigious private school. She prefers baggy, vintage clothes instead of the Prada and pearls worn by her classmates, and she lives with her reclusive grandmother in a dilapated mansion. Schuyler is a loner…and happy that way. Suddenly, when she turns fifteen, there is a visible mosaic of blue veins on her arm. She starts to crave raw food and she is having flashbacks to ancient times. Then a popular girl from her school is found dead… drained of all her blood. Schuyler doesn’t know what to think, but she wants to find out the secrets the Blue Bloods are keeping. But is she herself in danger?
Goodreads synopsis: Following her showdown with Elizabeth Bathory, Jackdaw Hammond is running from her past, hiding from her future, and hoping to contain her newfound thirst for blood. Buying an overgrown home in the middle of nowhere seems like the perfect place to escape…at least until she finds herself in the sights of a murderous family with a terrible secret and a penchant for dark magic. Meanwhile, her old ally Felix Guichard has gone to New Orleans to conduct his own investigation into the nature of blood magic, but is soon sucked into the intrigues of the city’s occult underworld. But Jack will need Felix more than she knows, for the battle for her soul is set to begin.
Her only salvation may lie with the secrets of 16th century master occultist Edward Kelley, and a dangerous mission he undertook in Venice to confront the Inquisition, the darkest deeds of his own past, and the fearsome power of Elizabeth Bathory.
Entering this giveaway is pretty simple, just follow the link and add as many points as you can. Keep in mind these books aren’t new, but they are in good condition. There will be two winners, and I will be randomly selecting them and who gets what. So I wish you all good luck and I hope you have fun! 🙂
