For What It's Worth

Bring on the contest!!

Bring On the Night (WVMP, Book 3)

Recovering con artist Ciara Griffin seems to finally have it all. A steady job at WVMP, the Lifeblood of Rock ’n’ Roll. A loving relationship with the idiosyncratic but eternally hot DJ Shane McAllister. A vampire dog who never needs shots or a pooper-scooper. And after nine years, it looks as if she might actually finish her bachelor’s degree!

But fate has other plans for Ciara. First she must fulfill her Faustian bargain with the Control, the paranormal paramilitary agency that does its best to keep vampires in line. Turns out the Control wants her for something other than her (nonexistent) ability to kick undead ass. Her anti-holy blood, perhaps? Ciara’s suspicions are confirmed when she’s assigned to a special-ops division known as the Immanence Corps, run by the Control’s oldest vampire and filled with humans who claim to have special powers. To a confirmed skeptic like Ciara, it sounds like a freak fest. But when a mysterious fatal virus spreads through Sherwood—and corpses begin to rise from their graves—Ciara will not only get a crash course in zombie-killing, but will be forced to put her faith, and her life itself, in the hands of magic.

Bring on the Night is almost here!! It officially comes out next Tuesday July 27th and I'm giving you a chance to win it all this week

I'm doing things a little differently for this contest. There will be 3 chances to win. The first contest goes up today and ends Wednesday, then the next contest for two days. The last chance to win is Friday's contest.

So what will you win? So glad you asked.

Each winner will get a copy of Bring on the Night (of course) and because the WVMP series is all about the music - a $10.00 iTunes gift card! For Friday's contest I will be adding a little vampire swag to the package.
So let's get to the rules shall we.....

Since this is the third book in the WVMP series and I'm giving away three books - we'll stick with the theme of threes. Jeri has kindly sent over her list of her three favorite CD's and three favorite books. Here they are...

1. Nirvana, Unplugged in New York
2. Eve 6, Eve 6
3. The Cure, Hot Hot Hot

(Wow, that was tough. I wish I could divide it by decade, but that would be way too much work. ;-)

1. Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, Good Omens
2. Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
3. Caprice Crane, Stupid and Contagious
Thanks Jeri!!

  18. Heya!!! (",)

    Let's see, these have been my favourite CDs for over a year now ...

    Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge (My Chemical Romance) ...
    ... by FAR my absolute favourite, the most awesome album ever ever EVER!!! It's just WOW and never fails to make me smile, or start bouncing around the flat :) I even bought another one for my boyfriend's car, so now we never listen to the radio anymore when we drive somewhere ... and I rarely watch TV ... so WW3 could happen, and I'd have no idea.

    The Black Parade (My Chemical Romance) ...
    ... what can I say, I'm a fan :D This one is just all kinds of crazy melodramatic and I LOVE it :D

    Billy Talent III (Billy Talent) ... ♥

    As for books, ummm, series will have to count as one :)

    The Fever Series (Karen Marie Moning) ... yup, it's THAT good ;D

    Um, it's hard to choose, because I have loads, but these are the next two that come to mind:

    The Night Huntress Series (Jeaniene Frost)

    Shiver (Maggie Stiefvater) ...
    ... tried to buy Linger online yesterday and - even though it was only released a week ago - it's so sold out it hurts :s

    I follow your blog and Twitter :)
