Mailbox Monday- September 14, 2009

Mailbox Monday: Here's what came in my mailbox this week:

  2. May I ask what the FrugalReader book ring is?

    Have you ever dreamed of actually
    becoming a character in one of your favorite book series?
    D.D. Barant is currently writing the second book in the 'Bloodhound Files' series.
    The next volume, scheduled for publication in 2010 will be called
    and YOUR NAME could be a character in the book
    DD Barant writes:
    "I’d like to offer the chance of literary immortality in the second book of the Bloodhound Files series—I will use the name of the highest bidder as a character in the second book, DEATH BLOWS. Be forewarned, though; there’s a good chance you’ll appear as a vampire, werewolf or golem. As long as you have no problem with that—place your bids!"
    Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime chance to have your name as a character in this wonderful new series!!!
    Here's what critics had to say about DYING BITES:
    "Snappy writing, a page-turning story and fresh world-building make Dying Bites a satisfying meal of a book."—Kelley Armstrong, New York Times bestseller of Living with the Dead
    "Dying Bites is wacky, unpredictable, fresh and amazing. I would kill to write as well as DD Barant. Seriously."--Nancy Holder, author of Pretty Little Devils
    "Barant’s well-developed world offers intriguing enhancements to mythology and history. Jace is remarkable, strong-willed and smart, and she sets an unstoppable pace. Look for the Bloodhound Files to go far." -Publisher's Weekly
    Q: Can I name my character anything I want?
    A: Not quite. The name should be the name of a real person. No obscene nicknames or trademarked names will be accepted
    Q: What exactly will I be getting if I win?
    A: D.D. Barant has agreed to name a character after you or someone you choose. At the end of the auction, you'll send us the name that you want the character to be and D.D. Barant will send you a signed certificate with your chosen name. Upon publication of DYING BITES, D.D. Barant will inscribe an author's copy of the book for you and send it to you.
    Q: Can I choose what kind of being (vampire, werewolf or golem) I'd like my character to be?
    A: No. The character has to serve the needs of the story.
    Q: Will my character be featured in more than one book in the series?
    A: Probably not. Again, the needs of the story will determine who and what the character is. You get to choose the name.

    ALL proceeds of this auction will go to the Dream For Jeanne Fund
