Thanks to C.D. Gallant King (whose books you should totally get) I learned of an awesome vampire themed event that prompted me to pause my blog break to help spread the word.
Hell yeah, vampires!
As you know, I am a lover of all things vampires (well, almost all things. There's a few exceptions that I thought were horrible and shame the vampire genre. *cough*BloodRayne the movie*cough*) So when I saw this I knew I had to sign up.
In the month of October authors and publishers of vampire-themed books from the U.S. and Canada are pledging to make a financial donation to the American Red Cross or Canadian Blood Services. By signing up, the books will be listed at VampiresBooksforBlood.org and links to buy the books available as well as what donation being made. I signed up Being Human and opted to donate a flat $50.00. Mostly because I'm paranoid no one will buy my book and I'll have no money to give to the American Red Cross at the end of October. (I see myself as the lone author in the corner that no one wants to talk to.) If you don't have a vampire themed book to sign up, you can help spread the word using the hashtag #vampbooks4blood, or donate to the American Red Cross or Canadian Blood Services.
For Tommy, there is only one thing he needs to do: survive.
Only surviving isn't that easy. The hunt for blood can be tricky when humans know to fear the night. Desire sits on the edge of his mind, urging him to become the monster humans think he is. Vampire Forces, a special branch of police, is determined to turn every vampire to ash. Tommy included.
The only human Tommy can trust is his twin brother. A bond connects them, and with Danny's help, Tommy starts to understand the human world he struggles to survive in. He'll learn what friendships means and feel the sting of betrayal, find that sometimes the worst monsters are very human, and come to understand that family means more than blood.
Tommy just wants to survive and he knows what he needs to do. But with the number of humans that mean more to him than a meal growing, he'll learn there's more to life than simple survival. He'll discover being human doesn't mean being a human.
