Below, you will find my published psychoanalytic essay (published for free via Wattpad for a short time only), which you may read to further deepen your own analysis of Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicle books.
Most important, you are encouraged to reminisce about past Anne Rice signings, or Lestat Balls, anything that is brought to the forefront of your mind, while we are all in the eager, anticipation-filled mood, of waiting for the most exciting time of the decade for all Anne Rice fans- the release of Prince Lestat.
**There will be prizes given away during the broadcast (courtesy of the wonderful people of Knopf Publishing Group), which includes (1) a signed hardcover copy of Prince Lestat, (2) an I “heart” Lestat pin, and (3) a special Lestat bookmark.** RSVP for the event by clicking this link to the appropriate Google Hangout on Air Page, and have your steaming mug of chicory coffee ready for two hours of intellectually intensive discussion of our favorite series of literary vampire books!!!
VAMPIRE CHRONICLE ACADEMIC REVIEW SESSION POST DETAILS:
Until this coming Tuesday (when a special post will appear at midnight on the exact hour, the book is released, before a planned special 2 hour live chat/online midnight party at 10pm. Eastern Time via Google Hangout on Air), For each post, on the last few days till October 28, 2014 will include my own academic/scholarly related posts (is that too lofty of a term to describe these articles?) will be posted for your perusal, and enjoyment.
For today (and for all of next week) as a gift and also a means for promotion for getting more entries for the Coven of the Articulate: Anne Rice Scholarly Compendium (slated for a March-April 2015 release), I am publishing the full-text (free of charge and for your enjoyment) of my psychoanalytic paper about Anne Rice’s works. I ask that you please respect the copyright rules and restrictions that are a fundamental part of keeping my intellectual property safe and completely within the realm of my control.
This is a privilege, so I ask that you please respect that, by only reading, but never trying to illegally upload the text of this, or replicate any of the sentences, facts, or analysis for your own perfidious activity.

SPECIAL BLOOD AND GOLD First Edition, Signed Hardcover Contest
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- Video Greeting, from Anne Rice herself!(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.
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!!
***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 email@example.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!!
**For those who reside in the vicinity of New York, NY, Anne Rice will be at 192 Bookstore in New York, NY on October 28th, 2014 (coinciding with the official release of Prince Lestat)
**Update about live Memnoch the Devil Reading: The hypothetical Memnoch the Devil Reading, at St. John the Divine Cathedral, has been cancelled (even though it was never a finalized event, at any time in the planning stages). There wasn’t enough time for the right preparations for this event to be made. I apologize for the few that were looking forward to this. The signing, as you are always well-aware of, is still going to happen. Hope you all have a wonderful time, at the event!
**Those of you, who do not live in the New York area still have a chance to meet Anne Rice, and get your treasured/beloved copies of Prince Lestat signed.
Several venues have discreetly posted some ticket information for the upcoming Prince Lestat book tour. I will try finding more, and posting them below, with hyperlinked text for your convenience!! If you need help finding a signing near you, leave a comment below, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
