Stakes & Stilettos Virtual Release Partypalooza!!

Welcome to the party to celebrate the release of Stakes & Stilettos, the fourth book in my Immortality Bites series! Glad you could make it.

The party’s just inside Haven, the secret vampire nightclub owned by master vampire Thierry de Bennicoeur. He might act kind of unfriendly, but he’s a good guy down deep. Really deep. He doesn’t show his friendly side to just anyone.

Come on in! Don’t mind the scary-looking bouncer. He’s been told not to kick out any humans today. There’s room for everybody. You do have some cash for the bar, right?

Have a Bloody Mary. Don’t worry, silly. Of course we can make you one the “regular” way. However, if you’d like to sample something a bit more exotic, we have all blood types on tap. I recommend the B-Positive. With the cheery name, you really can’t go wrong. 

I’m over in the corner hanging out by the stack of Stakes & Stilettos and the chocolate fountain, but please feel free to look around, although it’s probably best if you don’t stray too far into the shadows. The regular customers aren’t used to having humans around. Sure, they’re friendly, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry, don’t you agree?


Question: What’s a party without some prizes?

Answer: A crappy one!

Every virtual attendee is in the running for:

• One of three $10 Amazon gift certificates delivered to your email inbox for your book buying pleasure.

• One of two signed copies of Stakes & Stilettos with an extra special vampire sketch by yours truly (more than just my traditional fanged happy face). I can’t guarantee it will be good, but it’ll be original!

Just leave a comment and you’re automatically entered. I’ll pick the winners* by noon EST on Wednesday, April 1st. And that’s no joke!

Hold on, who let those other vampires in? The ones lurking over there…

Uh excuse me? This is a party only for Immortality Bites vampires and their guests. Hello?

Okay, now it’s getting ridiculous. They all need to leave immediately.

Well…except that last one who just came in. Yeah, that one over there. The pale one with the crazy hair. He can stay. Tell him to come over here and sit by me.

Here’s some other completely unrelated vampire entertainment while I take care of this influx of uninvited vampires. 

 

 

And one just for old time’s sake that IS related:

Now, back to the party! Did you get a drink yet?

I told you, just ignore Thierry. He glares a lot. It’s not you, it’s him.

Mingle. Have fun. George is your waiter today. Just tell him what you want to eat or drink and he’ll set you up. Remember to tip!

I’ll be around all day if there are any questions or comments about the book (STAKES & STILETTOS — AVAILABLE NOW!) or anything else. Otherwise, enjoy yourselves!

But remember…friends don’t let friends drink and Twitter!!

–Michelle xoxo

 

*Please check back tomorrow afternoon to see if you’ve won. Prizes must be claimed within one week from announcement.

    Oh Man! I love Angel and Spike!! I miss Buffy The Vampire Slayer. I’ve been thinking about the seasons on DVD. I also loved the series Moonlight, oh but the network had to go and cancel that show! Love vampires especially the Edward Cullen kind – lol…

    I’m looking forward to reading Stakes and Stilettos.

    Great par-tay, Michelle! Tell George to keep those drinks coming.

    Oh dear, I just spilt my strawberry dacquiri all over Edward Cullen’s shirt! The only way to prevent stains from setting in is to rinse it out right away.

    We’ll just step into a shadowy corner. Nothing to see here, people, carry on.

Thanks for pursuing your talent and having the courage to make it to the publishing stage. I always wonder how many talented writers are out there that didn’t perserve?

    Obviously Spike and Angel and Lestat wandered back into the party. Sounds like they’re welcome, so I suppose they can stay.

    Also, that Mick St. John just showed up with the chick from Underworld.

    Oh, jeez… there’s all of the Lost Boys drinking all the booze. I thought they were dead??

    @Aggie Snyder-Cousino — Quinn will be back in Tall, Dark & Fangsome. He’s still in Las Vegas at the moment so he couldn’t make it to the party. ;)

    Wow! Great comments everyone. You all rock!

    See Michelle – I told you I’d keep Spike and Angel out of trouble! Looks like I had some help too! Congrats on the excellent party! It’s always a bonus at a vamp party when there are no…..er…..”accidental” deaths! Hurray!
