Party: Vampire Contest with Lucienne Diver

In honor of Lucienne Diver's novel Vamped (which sounds fun, and I really want to get my own copy sometime soon) we are holding a month-long vampire-loving contest!


Below, you will find a vampire quiz. Fill out as much as you can and email me here: shootingstarsmag AT aol DOT com. The winner will be chosen by whoever has the most correct (if there's only one person) or we'll pick the top scores and randomly choose the winner that way.

Ends: May 31

Prizes (One Winner):
Signed copy of PROM DATES FROM HELL by Rosemary Clement-Moore

Signed copy of VAMPED

Signed copy of first book in the Morganville Vampires series by Rachel Caine and a glow-in-the-dark bumper sticker

These are all courtesy of Lucienne (so yay for her!) and if I can find anything else to include, I'll add some other goodies.

Kaitlyn: All Lucienne's idea, but I'm glad you think so!!

Insert book title: Glad to hear, and I thought it was fun and different. :)

NotNessie: hah, it works though...the joke I mean. And I'm sorry you aren't good at it. It was a bit hard for me too honestly.

Ashley said...

I entered. Great idea for a contest. Are you going to post the answers when you announce the winner?

Lucienne said...

I guess the questions sort of demonstrate what a vampire geek I am. I hope you all have fun with the quiz!!

That quiz was so much fun! I hope I got them all right! What a super idea Lucienne, way to make us work for our prizes!

Amy said...

Whew. That was fun. =) Pat Elrod (P.N.) lives around here and used to come into the bookstore I worked at to sign her books. She signs them with a smiley face that has little fangs. I love it! She's a sassy lady.

deltay said...

Phew-wee, that was fun! I've just sent you my answers. Great quiz =)

Jazz said...

That was tough, but my previous employment in the YA section at Borders and the vampire class I took last semester got me through it.

The Quiz was fun.

Lucienne said...

Amy, isn't Pat great? I always say all you have to do is look up "spitfire" in the dictionary to find her picture staring back at you!
