You Can Still Get Blood Diva FREE. Here’s How…

blooddiva_pass2 (1)The never to be repeated five days of Blood Diva totally FREE on Kindle are over. Will this help boost sales of my well-reviewed but not exactly bestselling sexy, campy, vampire masterpiece for high-brow types who like a little smut with their serving of culture and deep philosophical musings? Aside from me, who cares?

This post is about you, gentle reader, and how you can still read Blood Diva for FREE.

Blood Diva — The Game

blooddivajpghigh2So I a couple of weeks ago I bonded over opera on twitter with a gaming journalist . That’s opera the musical theatrical form, not the operating system. This has led to a few gamers following me on twitter.

I am so seriously NOT of that world. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. There are many clubs I will never belong to that fascinate me.

It did get me thinking though about what a terrific game-heroine Vampire Alphonsine would make. She’s not busty, but she is leggy and beautiful, and really uninhibited, and she totally kicks butt with her super-vampy powers.

So, point being, if you are a gamer guy or gal who thinks they might like a book about a smart, sexy, vamp who potentially could fight evil if properly motivated, then I’d be happy to send you a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review. Click here for details.

A Very Quirky Top Ten Lady Vamps List

selene imgres-1May I confess now that I’ve never seen any of the Underworld movies, and don’t care about Selene? Sure, from what I can see, she looks pretty cool in the black trench coat, but she seems way too much like a vampire version of The Matrix character, Trinity, who is awesome enough without even being a vampire.
