Contest for things I forgot


So here's the deal, last week's VampBash was a great success.  And I thought I had everything all in order, and all the prizes written down each day and winner's names in order.  Until I realized I did not.  While I offered Kristen Battestella's THE VAMPIRE FAMILY as a prize on Wednesday, I actually forgot to draw a winner for it.

And, I drew one name for two different prizes, and that winner was awesome enough to point that out, so now I have an extra prize to give away, which was a copy of the BITE ME magazine.

So let's have a shout-out about the VampBash.  Did you like it?  Do you think we should do it every year? Any suggestions for changes or things that could make it even more fun?  Leave a comment, and on Tuesday I'll draw a winner for Kristen's book and one for the magazine.

And do stop in on Monday for an interview with Carole Nelson Douglas!

I had such a great time during VampBash. Everyday was such a treat. There's nothing I'd change. I'm hoping you'll really consider bringing it back next year, it's a great way to get us into the Halloween spirit.

I absolutely loved VampBash. I found a bunch of new authors, and a cool website or two to frequent. And I loved the scavenger hunts. I really hope you do this again next year, and with the scavenger hunts.

Keep up the awesome-ness!!

I loved it as well. Now I have a whole lot more authors that I will be supporting. :)

I loved the VampBash. It was a lot of fun. Is there a way that maybe it can be done during other holidays. Like maybe find xmas books that would be good for contest all week in Dec. or something. But the Vamp Bash was great for Halloween. I would love to see you do it next yr.
Heidi Shafer somehow I got this account back again. You understand.

I loved the VAMP BASH and definitely think it should be done every year. I like the idea of finding new authors and getting to find out more about them and their books through the interviews and the excerpts from the bash.

Sounds like fun was had by all. I hope to be able to visit next year.

Vamp Bash was great and was fun, I wouldn't change anything about it. I first heard about your website through hearing about Vampbash from another book site. I went on everyday to checkout what was new for vampbash and still coming to this site today. You should definitely do it again next year.
