We have had so much fun in the past, let’s have a Battle of the Bands!


What song sparks in your dark heart, oh great and might blood sucker lovers? #TEAMVAMPIRE

So you like blood suckers huh? The darker the better for my books. I am not a sparkly vampire lover in the least. I adore the vampire legends but I like the throat ripping, blood fiends. The ones that give you nightmares and bring you into their lair without you realizing what you are doing and then… your a blood bag!


Or perhaps sings the glorious wisdom to your brain?#TEAMZOMBIES

You guys know me! I love me some good zombies but in a fight, the Vamps would win every time. If I were to lose my place at the top of the food chain I would much rather be food for a blood sucker than be partially consumed to reanimate and become a mindless wander of the earth craving the brains I no longer have to think rationally.

Battle of the Bands

Currently I am reading a great new find for #TEAMVAMP for my Read-a-Thon. My goal this month is a new Vampire novel a week and if I can I will try to even read a few zombie ones, well.. sigh I will try! It will hurt me to do but I can take one for the team! I already posted one Vampire post on the linky under the challenges tab and it was a doozy!

Here are the rules! You get to post a video representing your book, and like last #WWReadathon you can get a new entry each day. The great thing is that ANYONE CAN ENTER, not just the read-a-thon participants! We are power reading and if you already have read a couple of books you can add a video for those too. I will only include one entry a day and I will be presenting your names to RANDY over at

I have an awesome one based on what I am reading and I so love this book right now, it is TWISTED and bizarre and the humans and vampires are in an interesting situation. Right now my protagonist has been deported to Miami, where the Vampires rule the world and the humans live in fear and are controlled by the Vamps!

Vampires vs. Zombies - BATTLE of the BANDS - Challenge for Aug 4-10



  1. This looks so bloody fun, Kriss.

  2. Love this idea, don’t know where to find the time to really participate and none of my vampire novels are finished yet. Yes, I am nit picker and want them to be perfect, Or as near perfect as can be before publishing.
    So, sorry, but I have none to donate and no time to read any more books than I’m already reading. 🙁

  3. Don’t have to be part of it, there are plenty of us to do it! Keep watch, it will be a fun freaking month! YES Bloody fun, Victoria!

  4. oo oo ooo! I have to go to the grocery and read this in the car on the way there…the man is making me leave the house. I’ll be reading and responding again shortly! so much freaking fun!! I’m gonna do the challenge – though don’t count my entries though, just doing it for the awesome fun!!
    Show me some love!

  5. I’ve sucked at actually reading anything for this. And I was going to commit all day to it… but sadly, people want me to do stuff lol, So so far I only reviewed a comic book (Extinction Parade by Max Brooks, and yeah vampires totally win)

    But there are just better songs about zombies: This one goes out to Angel from My life as a White Trash Zombie

  6. I love that you’re team vamp for this. And I love that you not only picked my favorite paranormal creature but my favorite rock band from when I was a teen, as well. I had such a crush on Axl Rose.

    I’m reading Blood Bank by Tanya Huff right now. It’s a collection of short stories from her Blood Books vampire series. For the life of me, I can’t come up with a song to represent it, though. That’s okay, not entering the giveaway anyway, just wanted to comment and join the fun–and share the vampire love. 🙂

  7. I’m not reading anything zombie or vampire at the moment so sadly not taking part. I did just read a short book that made me think of the Magic Dance song from Labyrinth

  8. You know what’s funny. I’ve been a vampire fan since I was a teen but I’ve never written a vampire novel. Ghosts, yes. Vampires. No. I gotta get to work.
    Show me some love!
