Hi folks. It is my great pleasure to let you know that Dracula Week is coming to Lions and Men! This event is hosted by Lions and Men along with The Maiden's Court, and will run from 8/23 to 8/27. We thought it would be fun as I recently read Dracula by Bram Stoker and Heather recently read Dracula in Love by Karen Essex. Make sure to check out Lions and Men and The Maiden's Court each day next week for reviews, interviews, and other interesting things relating to vampires and Dracula!
And, in keeping with the theme of the coming week, I have a special giveaway for you - a 100th anniversary edition of Dracula, by Bram Stoker!
From the back of the cover: "Count Dracula sleeps in a lordly tomb in the vaults beneath his desolate castle. His stony eyes are open. His cheeks have the flush of life beneath their pallor. On his lips - a mocking, sensuous smile and scarlet-fresh blood. He has been dead for centuries, yet he may never die... Here begins the story of an evil ages old and forever new. It is the story of those who feed a diabolic craving into the veins of their victims, into the men and women from whose blood they draw their only sustenance. It is a novel of peculiar power, of hypnotic fascination. The reader is warned that he who enters Castle Dracula may not escape its baleful spell, even when he closes this book."
This giveaway will run from 8/18/10 to 8/27/10. The winner will be announced on 8/28/10. Please, United States entrants only. The following is a list of how you can enter the giveaway and increase your chances of winning!
