Dare to click the book cover below, to pre-order your copy, because this is a book you will not want to miss, if you view yourself as a serious fan of the Vampire Lestat…

Day 5 (of 28 Total Days) Post: Belated Birthday Wishes, from the Lestat Book Coven

Picture, Property of Becket

These comments, as published below, from Coven members, are belated in nature, but that does not detract from their value, in any way whatsoever, especially given the fact it is concerning one of our favorite novelists Anne Rice. I wanted the coven members to given a voice on one of these posts, and granted the opportunity in having their birthday wishes (even if belated by nature) shared below, on one of the #28DaysofLestat posts.

***First off, SPECIAL BLOOD AND GOLD First Edition, Signed Hardcover Contest***

2014-10-05_18-13-03_663[1] 2014-10-05_18-13-23_30[1]

      I will be attending Anne Rice’s signing at 192 Books on October 28, 2014, and I am planning to get a copy signed and personalized for the winner on that date!! This is a special laminated (serving to protect the book) first-edition hardcover that is in very good condition. This contest helps further promote my self-publishing publicity and editorial services, for the many indie writers out there, and I really thank you, in advance for entering this contest, as these contests do go a long way with helping promote this service, so aptly named: A Bibliophile’s Workshop

Another hypothetical prize (still not definite, as of yet) is to record a special message at the signing, from Anne Rice, to the winner. I’m pretty certain she’d be really excited to do this, so it is a good chance that it may happen. But given time constraints at signings, this may not happen…Stay tuned for more details on this development.

Contest Rules:
     Winners are chosen randomly, by the Rafflecopter APP, and the contest is to everyone, with a few restrictions. For those living outside either US or Canada, you can enter, as long as you understood you are required to pay the postage, as I cannot afford to pay any international shipping costs. I’d love to, but I cannot feasibly offer this, in my current financial situation!

    I apologize to those in the same boat, as well, who would not be able to afford the shipping costs. I am always remiss to post that following message, barring you from entering. It generally sucks, as so many of you are equally as passionate (or even more passionate) about Anne Rice’s  than anyone.

**Comic Shared by Coven Member, Jo Vee**
Read, and be entertained by this very amusing comic, which will serve as the Hyperlink image, that will allow you to be redirected to a Rafflecopter App. that will allow you to enter this contest!!

      Heather Nordgren- Happy birthday sweet Anne. Your amazing prowess with the written word has changed the world, changed how vampires are seen. You silently ushered in these amazing immortals, and we have welcomed them with open arms. Thank you so much for your contributions, for the life you have led and continue to live. And thank you for your very real presence here on FB. Its something to marvel at, how much you are really actually human, a flesh and blood creature, who has nonetheless stunned the world with your novels. You give me hope that someday, perhaps, I may be able to shadow your footsteps, and live the life I want to live, instead of the life society believes I must live. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

***Please send photos, artwork, letters, diary entries, an epistolary novel, something that you feel artfully engraves the impact Anne Rice’s stories have had on your life to narniafanatic@gmail.com with the subject line of “28 Days of Lestat! With your express permission being granted to share these things (one poem or song per day during the course of October, 2014, up till the 28th of October), I hope to post something each day- a small fragment of one person’s completely unique approach to the series, which will hopefully come together, impressively, on the 28th of October, to virtually reconstruct the different views and memories people attach to this series, the character of Lestat, and many of the other vampires (or immortal species) Anne has created, in an uncannily realistic way, which makes us believe that these characters are very real, and existing amongst us.

Also, be sure to share anything Vampire Chronicles-related on the Lestat Book Coven Facebook Group Page, any comment sections on all 28 individual #28daysofLestat posts here on this blog, or on Twitter,Instagram, Tumblr, and beyond!!
