Do you want to support an organization that - quite literally - saves lives?
Do you want to find some new vampire-themed stories for this Halloween season?
Have you been holding off on picking up Hell Comes to Hogtown?
Vampire Books for Blood brings authors and publishers of vampire-themed books to raise money for the American Red Cross and Canadian Blood Services. Organized by author Scott Burtness it is now in it's third year, and the event is running from October 1st to the 31st, 2016.
Participating authors and publishers pledge to make a financial donation to the American Red Cross or Canadian Blood Services at the conclusion of the event. The donation can be an amount per book sold in October, a percentage of royalties earned from book sales in October, or a flat amount at the conclusion of the event.
Personally, I will be donating $1 to Canadian Blood Services for every copy of Hell Comes to Hogtown sold.
There are over 40 authors/publishers and more than 50 books participating, so head over to the Vampire Books for Blood website to see if there is anything there you'd like. Grab a new book and support a great cause, It's a win-win situation for everyone!
Also, if you're reading this today, October 1, head on over to Facebook for the VampBooks4Blood Kick-Off event, starting at 12:00 PM Central time, 1:00 PM Eastern. You can meet some of the authors participating, play some games and maybe even win some prizes!
Fitz is a broke night manager for a grubby comic book store. His only friend Dee is a drugged-out, womanizing pro-wrestler. Together they’re the most pathetic losers on the face of the planet. Their lives cannot possibly get any worse.
And then they’re implicated in the kidnapping of the prime minister’s wife.
On the run from the cops, Fitz and Dee discover there is something far worse than the RCMP stalking the dark streets of Toronto. They are being hunted by an ancient demon of unspeakable evil with an insatiable taste for blood... or maybe it’s just your run-of-the-mill giant murderous hobo?
Either way, life in prison might be better than whatever the creepy drifter has in store for them…
