Posted By Beth Fantaskey

Okay - I've finally updated the site, so let's celebrate with a FREE STUFF drawing, in the spirit of Lucius's theory that life should be much more than "nice!" 

 

I was going to do a contest - maybe ask you to answer a question or something - then thought, "Everybody worked hard all during the school year... let's take the 'test' out of 'contest' and just have fun!"  So just write something like, "I'd like to enter," and on May 31, I'll pull the winner from the proverbial hat. 

 

What's the prize, you ask?

* A signed book, of course!

* Some beautifully crimson, Pennsylvania Dutch cherry "bites."  (The perfect Amish-country vampire snack, don't you think?)

* A "teen-sized" box of my favorite local chocolates, suitable for a Lucius-inspired dream.  (If they melt in transit, eat the glob out of the box... it's that tasty!)

* One tin of "Vampire Repelling Garlic Mints."  Seriously - mints that taste like garlic.  (Lucius would be particularly offended!  See p. 88)

* A bookmark with the gorgeous Jessica's Guide cover art.

* And last but not least - the opening pages of my next book, Jekel Loves Hyde, hot off my computer printer.  The winner will be the first person, outside of my editor, to read it! 

 

Entries due by Midnight, EST, May 30!  One entry per person, please!  Open to international residents!  And if you don't leave contact information, be sure to check back and see if you won!

 

GOOD LUCK!!!

I'd like to enter. I purchased Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side yesterday. I woke up in the middle of the might (had trouble sleeping) and decided to start the book. Next thing I knew.. I stayed up past sunrise, finishing the book in one sitting. I love this book and will be recommending it absolutely everyone I know. The characters were awesome and the story flowed nicely. I cannot wait until you publish another book. I am so glad I purchased this book now instead of waiting for paperback. So.. when I came to your site and saw the contest, I had to say, "I'd like to enter."

Amanda Fleck said...
PLEASE ENTER ME IN THE CONTEST! OMG! I LOVE your book! My librarian recommended it to me, and i LOVED it. I CRIED when Lucious was having like a mental breakdown and he wouldnt marry Jessia, it was SO SAD! So i took a shower and read the rest of it. I got it on Tuesday and I finished it on Wednesday at 3:30 in the morning! OH, it was SO GOOD! I LOVED the ending, and you really should make a sequel, like what they do when they rule together and how that all works out. And I just LOVE romantic parts so add a ton in there and... what should you call it? How about...Jessica's Guide to Ruling an empire...? Or, I KNOW! You can make the whole story is LUCIOUS'S point of view! That would be perfect! Then it would be like, "Jucious's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side." PERFECT! Keep us posted! They should make a MOVIE out of this. But if they do, us FANS need to get a say on who plays who. Because there are some PRET-TY hott guys out there, and most vampire movie directors cast ugly dudes. It SUCKS. Like Vampire Diaries and Twilight. UGH! THANKS SO MUCH!

Sydney Smith said...
I truly enjoyed your book! I am a Vampire fan until the end (ever since I read the brilliance of Anne Rice's depiction of Lestat)and this gave a plesant twist to your average Vampire story. So many characters hear, "I am a vampire.." and are fine with it but Jessica would not yield and believe. I found that especially refreshing. I have read this book 3 times already and can not get enough.. So Kudos to you and I am impatiently and anxiously (I am horrible at waiting) awaiting the arrival of your next world amongst pages!! P.S. I also love the way you depicted Antanasia's mother, someone so royal and regal, giving Antanasia the courage to be confident really gives me hope and motivation to feel that way about myself! So again, bravo! and thank you! P.P.S. I humbly would like to enter the contest as well seeing as though the prizes are beyond "mind-blowing" (I do rather like that phrase as well) in case you didn't notice, I want to be clear, I do want to enter the contest...and this is me....entering... :-) Thank you! Sydney

Hi Ms. Fantaskey! I bought your book and I read all of it last night [I was up til like 3] ! It was amazing ! It really helped me to keep my mind occupied, so I appreciate your hard work in making this book perfect. I would love to eneter the contest. Lucius does have a good outlook on life, though.

I would greatly appreciate entering in this Contest. Your book amazed me!!!! I just couldn't put Jessica's guide down!!!! Lucius was brilliant (and I think it's safe to say I have a new crush!!!) Because I'm a new mom I find it hard to find time to do anything for myself. but when I started reading this book I gave the babe to my husband and I read for four hours straight!!!!!!!!! IT WAS AMAZING, and I'm so happy I stumbled upon it in a Barnes and Noble. Thank you for taking me away from reality for a fantastic story!!!! -Sal.

I think this is much better than "nice." I'd love to win this. It's original and fun, plus having a hint of your next book is extremely exciting. Love the contest. Lucius is right, life should be better than nice.
