Become a Vampire in my Latest Novel

***This Competition is now Closed***

Ever dreamed of being a vampire?
I’m currently writing Thicker than Blood, the sequel to Hidden (Marchwood Vampire Series) and I thought it would be a bit of fun to give you the opportunity to become a character in the story. I’ll use your real name and, if you get picked, I’ll message you for more information on hair colour, character traits etc.

The novel is set in present day England and in 6th century Byzantium. You won’t be a main character, but you will play a significant role in the story and what’s more, I’m giving you the option to be a good vampire or an evil vampire bwahahahahaha!!!!



All you have to do, is follow my blog and write your name in the comments section below. Also state whether you'd like to be good or evil.

If you win:

-          The name used will be your first and last name as stated on the comments section.
-          The character using your name may not necessarily have your exact personality/looks etc.
-          You cannot substitute anyone else’s name.
-          You might get killed off!
-          Your name may be used in future publicity.
-          By entering this competition, you agree that I can use your name as a character in the Marchwood Vampire Series.

All entries must be in by midnight 30th November 2011.

I'll announce the winner on December 3rd, so don't forget to check back here to see if you're my vampire!

Good luck, bloodsuckers!

PS. Blogger is playing up a bit at the moment, so if you're having trouble commenting, make sure you uncheck the 'stay signed in' box, and it should be okay.

  29. My name is CORAL (like the reef) MILLER although my maiden name of Deskiewicz (What could be more fun than a Polish Vampire??!!) is a lot more fun.... but I won't lie I was happy to get to change the last name when I married. If I could choose I think I would pick an Evil Vampire for I am always so nice it would be fun to play for the other team :) and be a bit bad!

  55. Hello Shalini! My name is Ashley Hopes, I follow your Facebook page and absolutely love your book Hidden! I'd be completely honored to have my name in your next novel! I am the same age as alexandre, and have a love of the French language and have been studying it for four years now. It would be amazing if I were a vampire in the novel to be able to somehow relate to Alexandre and talk to him in his native language. Furthermore, I feel like I could have been made a vampire in the 1930's because I love that decade with its swing music and style. I feel I would be fitting as a good vampire because of my last name, I would bring hope to the vampires that we can defeat the ancient vampires and protect those we hold close in our hearts!

I love how you are going to get to pick a character, and let us have some say in it :)(if we get picked) That is awesome ;) I'd love to be entered :) Can we have some gray areas for being a vampire?? Like we have some Yin and Yang in us all... not all good, not all evil, though we might tilt one way or another? that would be awesome :)
